Absolutely Magnificent

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this wonderful home for a week. We had plenty of room for 14 people. The home is beautifully decorated and the grounds are gorgeous. My young nephews enjoyed fishing in the pond. The owners are some of the nicest, salt of the earth folks you will ever meet. I highly suggest this home for a large group or family. We will be back! Tara Gaines - Anniston, Al

Look NO FURTHER!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay at this home was in 2014 for our daughters wedding, along with her bridesmaids. This time was for our sons wedding, family and groomsmen. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this home. It is great to have everyone together with plenty of space to be together or to be alone. This house gives you everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary cooking supplies, serving pieces, plates, glasses and silverware. The bedrooms have wonderful beds, linens, towels all ready for you upon arrival. The outside deck is glorious! We are finished with our family weddings, but our family is looking forward to being together for the holidays.....and hopefully staying at this lovely home when we are all in town and together. Start of a family tradition. Thank you Terry Sue and Michael

Ritz Carlton of rental homes

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with all the amenities - comfortable, relaxing, peaceful, spacious, and impeccably maintained. Well beyond our expectations. Perfect for our group of 11 people ages ranging from 16-78. Owners were wonderful - super accommodating and made us feel right at home. We could not have asked for more. Planning to book again.

About Terry Sue Gagnet

Two Kids from the South who went to see the world - and lovingly landed back right where they always knew they would the Heart of Dixie ! Michael is a Louisiana boy and Terry Sue is a Mississippi girl who met while living in Southern California. Fate would bring them back to their True Southern Roots right here on the Eastern Shore !

Terry Sue Gagnet purchased this estate in 2011

Why Terry Sue Gagnet chose Daphne

We call it divine intervention. We bought the property sight unseen over the cell phone !! And then thought..WHAT are we going to do now???After one visit and meeting the original owners -the house came alive and magical for us - it was truly meant to be ! From the moment you drive down the meandering driveway not knowing what is in store for you the house captures your heart. We hope that it transports you and your loved ones to a place like no other ! Come enjoy !

What makes this estate unique

Every room in the home has big beautiful sliding glass doors and tons of windows that make you feel as if you are one with nature just outside. Mature trees make this park-like setting truly one of a kind. Relax on the huge deck or sit in the gazebo down by the pond. Wherever your imagination takes you....It's all yours.
