Fantastic Get-away From it All

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful relaxing stay away from it all. Brilliant, and most particularly if you love getting out on to the water. House and gardens were fantastic with all the facilities you could wish for and a brilliant pool area. Most generous of hosts too. And if you don't know the area - this is crab capital of the world! Other than Walberswick (over here in the UK), of course... Loverly area and within easy reach of all the fun and excitement of DC.

Beautiful Property

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful secluded property! Both interior and exterior. Very clean and well stocked with everything you need. Pool was a plus for a hot August vacation. Loved to enjoy morning coffee in the shade of the front porch. Location was great as it is close to downtown St. Michaels.

Great location. Great pool. Cute house.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a family weekend at the Cottage. 7 adults and 2 little kids. The pool is awesome- Really nice size and clean. Beautiful sprawling yard. Very shallow water at the dock, but fine for paddle boarding. We brought one and rented one. Well worth it! The house is a little dated but cute and well stocked. Loved that there were PLENTY of towels. I'd bring extra pillows. I also wish that one of the cabinets had been empty so we had a place for the food we brought. We also brought our bikes. The house is less than a mile from downtown St. Michaels, a super easy ride. I'd be careful biking at night- lots of bugs. Speaking of which, bring plenty of mosquito repellent and Yard Guard. It had been rainy, so there were millions of them. There were workmen there on Saturday repairing the chimney. It was fine, but wish we had been told ahead of time. We all loved the outdoor shower. Especially nice since the indoor one has a pretty low shower head. Overall, a great Family Weekend!

Lovely getaway spot close to town

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family vacation here in June 2018. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware and utensils, the family room is comfortable and great for couch napping, the bedrooms are comfortable and well appointed, and the outside spaces are delightful. The pool was wonderful and had pool noodles etc. for our kids to play with. My only wish about the pool is for it to have a fence around the it to keep my mind at ease with two small toddlers running around. We loved sitting out on the front porch to watch the sunset. While in walking distance to town for adults looking to get their steps in, it was too far for us to walk with small children. Overall we really enjoyed the cottage and would happily stay there again!

Great location, beautiful property, every amenity

  • 5 of 5

June 2016. We loved this house and the location for my husband's birthday with friends/family. It's very private and the landscaping is remarkable - huge old trees and lots of beautiful flowers. There are two areas for outdoor dining (one covered and one uncovered) and the pool is large and well-maintained. The bedding is quite comfortable and there are plenty of linens and towels. We enjoyed "cooking in" a couple of dinners. The kitchen has everything you need and more... Also, it's important to note for summer visitors - the A/C works great! We were comfortable in every room. The property is very close to town, shopping, and great restaurants. We particularly enjoyed the Bistro and 208 Talbot. For more casual meals, the Tavern at the Inn on Perry Cove and the Crab Claw were fun. We discovered two nice groceries in town (although there may be more). The owners were quite helpful and responsive to our questions. They have provided for anything and everything you will need to enjoy your stay here. We look forward to another visit and highly recommend!

Wine weekend

  • 3 of 5

We were in St Michaels for the Wine Festival. There were 7 wonen. The house is described as two bathrooms, however it is only one and a half baths. The electricity wiring was lacking and we could not use our blowdryers. The owner had assured us it would sleep 8 but there were only 7 beds.

The house was clean a swell appointed. The property is beautiful
