About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

New 2007 guest house is located on the grounds of a pre-Civil War circa 1850 home, Milford II. The guest facility offers privacy in a lovely setting with water views of Stutts and Hudgins Creek from each room.

Sandy beaches for family fun, deep water, docking facility for boat owners, boat ramp 20 minutes from lodging, plus an excellent area for kayaks and canoes, all combine to create a great retreat for a week or weekend of 'fun on the water.'

Rigby Island (Hole in the Wall) located at the entrance of the Chesapeake Bay is only 10 minutes by boat. Bring your own boat or schedule a sightseeing tour with a stop at the island for swimming or sunbathing.

Southern Hospitality at its BEST!

  • 5 of 5

Carl & Norma are gracious and accommodating hosts. Their piece of property is stunning. We fished from their dock, used their kayaks and waded in knee deep water around the shore.

Their apartment is perfect for a romantic getaway or 2 anglers looking to fish the area for stripers, red drum, trout etc....

One of the best values on VRBO!

Peaceful, Restful and Quiet Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the week we spent at the guest cottage. It is located on a large very private property where the owners Carl and Norma live. They were lovely, helpful and gracious hosts! Although the apartment is above a large three car garage , it is very private and quiet. It even has a nice deck that overlooks their beautiful grounds and creek. The apartment is bright and clean , has very comfortable beds and is charmingly decorated! You can fish or crab right from their beautiful pier or launch kayaks or a canoe as we did. We sat down by the creek and watched the osprey and otter catching fish in the evening. We took only five minutes to drive to Haven Beach and enjoyed the restaurants, shops and galleries in the nearby village of Matthews.We plan to return again soon!

Very comfortable and relaxed place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time for our Labor Day weekend with another family at this is one of the best properties we have visited. Guesthouse is separated from main house and newly finished. It is very bright and clean with full kitchen and a small deck which exactly as described and in the pictures. Place is at waterfront with private pier and beautiful view. It is also close to a small town with shopping and restaurants (8-10 mins). You have both privacy and convenience. We were told that there is public beach near-by, but we did not have time to go. The thing we enjoyed most was their pier. We caught dozens of crabs, some small fish and one big sting ray! Our lovely hosts Norma and Carl are very nice and make us feel being home. Our only wish is that this property could be closer to where we live. We will be back and definitely will recommend friends

My wife and I and our children only had 2 days here but it was a great stay. The place was super clean and had everything we needed. The owners were friendly and made us feel right at home. Would love to stay here again

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting; the accommodations were "just like home". While we came to ride the TDC 2016 - the weather was not on our side. We would like to come back when we can enjoy the outdoor activities that abound.
