About the Property
Chesapeake Bay Cottage Across Street from Community Beach
"Shore's Fun" looks directly across an open yard to the Chesapeake Bay and is within steps of our community beach and neighborhood pier. Spend a delightful afternoon on the pier catching crabs and fish, then toast the spectacular sunset with a bottle of chilled wine before preparing your fresh catch.
The air conditioned cottage is designed for a relaxing visit. It is equipped with comfortable furniture and beds, has a screened-in porch, a shady back yard, a picnic table, and a gas grill. There are two bedrooms. One bedroom opens onto the screened-in porch and contains a queen-sized bed and a single bed. The other bedroom has a queen-sized bed. In addition, there is a queen-sized pull out sofa in the family room. The kitchen and dining area, separated by a bar open onto a deck which connects with the screened porch.

About the owner: My parents had a cottage at Silver Beach when I was growing up and visiting there was the highlight of my summer. I remember lying in bed in the morning and hearing the gentle waves breaking on the beach, and the delicious smells of fire roasted marshmallows and hot dogs. Shortly after we were married, my husband and I rented a cottage at Silver Beach. We fell in love with the people and the area and luckily discovered a cottage for sale. We bought it that week, and sealed the deal with a handshake. As the years passed, our children spent long, relaxing, wonderful days growing up at Silver Beach during summer vacations. All of us felt sad when it was time to leave the cottage in the fall and resume our normal lives. As our family grew, we bought a second cottage at Silver Beach and our fondest memories have taken place there. Today, our adult children bring their little ones and friends to the cottages, and the traditions continue.
