Amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit, and we had an amazing time. We were much more lucky, caught many crab and fish, enough to feast and bring home. We even saw dolphins while kayaking! This estate is beautiful and the owners have created a piece of heaven here on the Chesapeake. We plan on coming back to enjoy the peace and serenity. Thank you Carl and Norma!

A wonderful mother daughter weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My 19 year old daughter and I loved our time in Moon! The cottage was super clean and had everything we needed. The views from the property are beautiful. We really enjoyed the kayaks as well as the nearby beach. Perfect! We will be back!

Our family had a great time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay. Carl and Norma made our family feel like we were visiting long time friends when we arrived and very helpful explaining the area. The property is extremely well kept and the cottage clean and comfortable. It was a perfect place for the kids to fish and crab from the dock and swim in the shallow water along the beach out front. Wish we had been able to stay longer on this trip and we'll be back again!

A very memorable experience

  • 5 of 5

The reviews weren't lying. The property is clean as can be, the scenery is out of this world, there's good eats nearby, clean beaches with warm water, and our hosts Carl and Norma were one of the nicest and most accommodating people I've ever met in my entire life. I highly recommend this property. You'll be wanting to come back.
