Overview

About the property

Four Bedrooms, Comfortable, Spectacular Views, Boating, Swimming and family fun

There are two houses on the property. In June of 2015 we completed a complete and total re-build of the carriage house and are back up and running on VRBO. Since retiring in 2014, Clarissa and I are living full time in the house and you may see us from time to time, but the carriage house 'cottage' has been designed to be a get-away that is comfortable, elegant, private, cozy and memory making. It is perfect for families, couples, and or friends just wanting to spend some time together. It is far enough away from civilization to enjoy the water, sky, trees and wildlife, without being entirely out of touch. You are in short driving distance to Cambridge, Easton, St. Michaels, and Salisbury for lots of day-trip entertainment. For nature lovers, we are near the Blackwater Refuge for kayaks or canoes. For hunters, this is an area sought after by those interested in ducks, geese, deer, turkey and others. For golfers, there are two nearby golf courses and plenty of varied and highly-rated local restaurants.

If you’d rather just stay on the property in a quiet, secluded natural arena, you can enjoy boating, kayaking, fishing, crabbing (right from the pier), swimming, walking, biking, sitting with your favorite folks, or holding down the hammock with a good book. In cool or rainy weather, there are games, books, internet and TV. The house is designed for entertaining, with a brand new kitchen equipped with plenty of cooking paraphernalia, and the living space is conducive to easy conversation and lots of comfortable seating.

There are two different areas for dining, inside or under the pergola, all in view of the Brooks Creek/Choptank vista. It is perfect for a family to get re-acquainted or a romantic getaway. We provide the ambiance, you provide the fun!

Living room with 42' flat screen TV, dining room, bathroom and kitchen, two with queen beds and a third with a full size bed, and a loft with two twin sized beds. separate 15 x 12 pergola with slate flooring, adirondacks, fireplace and dining seating for four. The pier can handle motorboats, canoes, or rowboats. Two kayaks are available. Linens and paper ware provided along with all kitchen equipment and dining ware.

About Rob Neumer

We bought this Cambridge property as a family getaway from our full-time jobs in Harford County. Our grown children travel here from various Maryland locations with their friends to do loads of relaxing, kayaking, swimming, jet skiing, and many kinds of games and outdoor fun.

Rob Neumer purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Rob Neumer chose Eastern Shore

The main purpose of this beautiful location is for peace and quiet, beautiful vistas, water, trees and sky. It was discovered with the help of locals who knew of its privacy and scenic view.

What makes this cottage unique

Reading a book under the pergola with a soft breeze blowing in from Brooks Creek, napping in the hammock, or enjoying a fire after sunset with friends makes this a restful, rejuvenating place.

Unimaginable, Unbelievable, Unbeatable!

  • 5 of 5

My adult children, grandchildren, my husband, and I spent 2 glorious days at Rob and Clarissa's location. The pictures do not do it justice! All of my hopes and dreams for Labor Day weekend were surpassed! We have stayed in the Chesapeake Bay area over a dozen times, and never did we have as much fun and see as much beauty! In addition to the low price, the amenities were superb! My children LOVED the use of the kayaks, paddleboats and bicycles. The view from the 2nd floor (main living area) is astounding and breathtaking, even though the owners' house is in front (low to the ground). The swimming dock and the main dock were fantastic areas for taking beautiful sunset and family pictures. We enjoyed the privacy, the campfire and space for children to run. The hammock near the water, boats and ping pong table were very well used! Seeing a Great Blue Heron, an eagle (we saw 2 more on the way up to Cambridge), and an inspiring sunset were a blessing to my soul! The owners' flexibility with our large family and generosity touched our hearts. We more than got our money's worth- Rob and Clarissa, we hope to return! God bless you both, and THANK YOU from all of us! Although it was only 2 days (this time), we received a lifetime of memories. No one wanted to leave when it was time. :)

Relaxing Nature filled Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our family vacation on the Eastern shore. Rob & Clarissa were very accommodating. It was very relaxing sitting on the dock fishing and reading under the trees with the view of the Bay. Almost every day, we saw Bald Eagles, Ospreys, & Herrons right in front of the house on the water. We also kayaked almost every day and we used the bikes to explore the back roads. The house was very nice and had everything you needed to feel at home. The kitchen is very nice and we cooked many of our meals. We also utilized the grill a few times. We would recommend the property to anyone planning a Eastern shore vacation.

Perfect Summer Days

  • 5 of 5

We loved the amazing sunsets, the eagles nesting next door, crabbing, kayaking, and swimming. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable and the house was clean. The boys enjoyed the ping pong. Great place for relaxing and family fun.

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

There isn't much I can add to what has been said in the other reviews. Beautiful location, well appointed property (beds were super comfortable), very friendly and accommodating hosts. Sunsets from the dock can't be beat! We plan to return.

Beautiful & Relaxing & Right on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and preschooler and I had a wonderful time staying at the cottage over the 4th of July holiday. The location is beautiful, surrounded by the bay, and super relaxing. We caught crabs off of Rob's pier. We used the kayaks and paddle boat to explore the bay. We also had a fun exploring parts of downtown Cambridge.

The unit itself was more than sufficient for our small family - lots of great books, games for kids, etc. Rob and his family were first rate hosts - gracious, thoughful, accommodating.

We had a wonderful visit.
