About the Property

Cozy and bright 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom cottage

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.

**Note: Until September 2013, this cottage was listed on VRBO by a previous owner. It received 19 positive reviews for an average of 5 stars.**

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My husband and I live and work in the DC area. We both grew up in coastal New England and missed being by the water. We often traveled to the Eastern Shore and during one visit we fell in love with Tilghman Island. After several hotel stays, we decided to rent The Roost. And the rest, as they say, is history!

Why the Owner Chose Tilghman Island, MD, USA:
Tilghman's is a unique and quiet town surrounded by water. It is one of the last working watermen's villages on the Chesapeake Bay, and the perfect destination for boating, kayaking, fishing, long walks, and exploring nearby towns and villages. Historic St. Michael's, with its great dining and unique shops, is just a 15 minute drive.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the peaceful and convenient location of The Roost. In the mornings we watch the boating activity in Knapps Narrows and the marina from the sunroom. We spend our days on or near the water and exploring the area. In the evenings we walk to restaurants by the bridge and enjoy the bay views. We often drive to St. Michael's or Easton for shopping, museums, and restaurants, but we always look forward to returning to Tilghman's. Our toddler loves visiting the Phillips Wharf Environmental Center just down the street where kids (and adults) can learn about the environment by getting up-close with bay critters.
