Enjoy the beauty and tranquility of Tilghman Island from this bright and comfortable 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage known for many years as the vacation rental 'The Roost.' The cottage, which is located on a quiet residential street across from a marina on Knapps Narrows, is within short walking distance of waterfront restaurants, the Tilghman drawbridge, marinas, boating-related activities and rentals, and expansive water views.
Located on approximately half an acre, it has a spacious backyard and a separate one-car garage for parking and storage. The living room and sunroom offer glimpses of the water and boating activity in the marina. Recreational boaters will appreciate The Roost's close walking proximity to marinas with transient and seasonal slips, as well as a driveway that can accommodate a small boat trailer.
Guests will enjoy spending their days on the water kayaking, boating, fishing, or crabbing. Some have used the cottage as a home base for exploring the Eastern Shore and Mid-Atlantic region—visiting nearby towns and villages or taking day trips to Washington, DC or Ocean City. Those looking to unplug and unwind closer to home can explore the Island by foot or by bike, cook fresh seafood in the well-stocked kitchen, or read a book under the maple tree in the back yard.
The property is licensed for rentals by Talbot County. Until September 2013, this cottage was listed on VRBO by a previous owner. It received 19 positive reviews for an average of 5 stars.**
One final note...
As you might have noticed, we are lucky enough to be mostly booked these days because of several wonderful renters that have chosen to return to The Roost each year. We hope that you'll remember us and check back often to see if your dates become available - we often have availability in the spring and fall. (We have also hosted shorter-term winter rentals for folks like engineers and dredgers working on Poplar Island and the occasional artist or writer looking for some peaceful solitude!)
Regardless of where you stay, we know you'll enjoy your time on this special island and hope you come back again!
