Blue Water Farm

A Country Estate nestled on a high bank of the Choptank River with unparalleled views of one of Chesapeake Bays highly traveled waterways.

Blue Water Farm…. This waterfront residence, on a 150 acre farm, was built in the early 1940’s by a doctor who wanted a weekend residence away from the hectic pace of his New York and Philadelphia practice. The property is situated on the Choptank River, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. This family estate is a sportsman’s paradise with abundant waterfowl (it is in the Atlantic “flyway” of the migrating ducks and geese) and provides some of the best fishing and boating activity on the East Coast.

A mile long private lane offers a beautifully landscaped transition from the hustle and bustle of urban activity to a charming Georgian colonial residence.

The center hall leads to a large living room with fireplace and bay window overlooking the river. The reading nook leads to a cheerful dining room with another bay window. The main floor also includes a separate wet bar, a powder room and large porch with a fireplace over-looking the swimming pool and the river. A butler’s pantry and a family kitchen connect the main house to the secondary house which includes two pine paneled bedrooms with a full bath, a first floor bedroom with full bath, and a laundry room. The second floor of the main house contains a large master bedroom with a fireplace and a half bath and two bedrooms with a full bath.

The adjacent fully functional pool house lies directly on the rivers edge. This building consists of a large recreation area (pool table, Foos Ball, air hockey, poker table and weight machine and free weights) with a fire place and a bar. A fully equipped kitchen makes this building an ideal location for additional festivities.

The views from the main house and the pool house offer unparalleled views of the Choptank River, which is an ever changing panoroma of wildlife, fishing and pleasure boats, sunrises, and a fascinating montage of changing weather and sea patterns. Blue Water Farm is a haven for the urban commuter and an ideal place to bring the family.

Great time in a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I---8 adults and 7 children---had a fabulous time at Blue Water Farm. The photographs on the VRBO website do not do this property justice. There is a huge playground area not in any photos. Also, there is a breezeway that links the main house with the spacious section of the property over the garage.

The co-owner of Blue Water Farms was very responsive when we had a small plumbing problem.

The only problems we had were (1) the week went too quickly and (2) a two-year-old granddaughter who, at the end of the week, said, "I want to stay here forever." If only.

A perfect trip!

  • 5 of 5

The house and grounds are beautiful. The kitchen is very well stocked and the owner, Corey, keeps the house in Tip-Top shape. The pool is beautiful and our kids love the pool house. We kayaked, swam, road bikes, had a campfire, and just sat and enjoy the view.

Wonderful Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect family retreat, this is it! After traveling down the 3/4 mile driveway, you can see the Choptank River through the branches of tall trees! Once you come around the bend, you are greeted with a beautiful patio, surrounding a salt water pool! Just lovely! There were 13 of us, ranging in age from 13 to 83! The home and property were well maintained and accommodated all our needs! There was plenty of space for my mother, four sisters, their husbands and children. Because the house is large and spread out, we never felt as though we lacked privacy. There were also large common spaces where everyone could easily convene, the screened in porch, the living room, the dining room and of course the row of Adirondack chairs facing the Choptank, our favorite spot to have a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise! The kitchen is large, has a great pantry and 2 refrigerators! The kids really enjoyed the ritual of using the waffle iron every day! Having a first floor bedroom and private bath for our mother was also very helpful. The kids enjoyed hanging out in the pool house and swimming tirelessly in the pool! They could even be found reading in the hammocks on hot afternoons! Imagine that! We also found that we happily took walks, runs, kayaks and bikes from Blue Water Farm. We were lucky to see a huge array of animals on the property; many leaping deer, turkeys, raccoons, bald eagles, and a gray fox! Corey, one of the owners, was quite helpful. Even before we arrived he forwarded an information sheet about things to see and do in the area, as well as frequently asked questions. He followed this up with a phone call to me, to see if I had any farther questions. He was at the home when we arrived and showed us how to work things. We really enjoyed everything about our stay. If you have a large family, enjoy the water, countryside and spending time together, then this is the place for you!

Disappointing owner response.

  • 1 of 5

Very nice place. Unfortunately the owner has claimed damage to the property claiming a significant portion of my security deposit with no proof.

This place was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! Our group came here for a relaxing Labor day weekend, and we couldn't have imagined a better spot if we tried. The house is spacious and the grounds are unbelievable. The pictures don't do it justice. The house is also stocked with all of the kitchen equipment you could need.

There’s a lot to love in the Heart of the Chesapeake

On Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Dorchester County has more shoreline than any other county in Maryland. From the Chesapeake Bay to the Choptank and Nanticoke Rivers to dramatic marshland, water is central to life here. Watermen (and women) still harvest crab, oysters, clams, and fish from these waters. You’ll find fresh and local seafood on the menu in nearly every restaurant.

Dorchester offers a mix of old and new, of wide open spaces and charming small towns. You’ll find unspoiled landscapes and nature to admire at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and throughout the county. Dramatic vistas of unspoiled countryside and marshland create the perfect backdrop for incredible sunsets. No wonder Dorchester draws outdoor enthusiasts, birders, photographers, hunters, cyclists, boaters, paddlers, and others from near and far.

At the same time, you’ll find award-winning restaurants, a vibrant arts scene, and independent, locally owned shops in our largest city, Cambridge, home to 12,000 residents.

Centrally located in the Chesapeake Bay region and with a shape that resembles a heart, Dorchester is known as the Heart of the Chesapeake. We’re easy to get to: about 1.5 hours from Baltimore and Washington, D.C., and less than three hours from Philadelphia.

Find out more about the area online at and in person at the Dorchester County Visitor Center, 2 Rose Hill Place in Cambridge.

Dorchester highlights

• The 30,000 acres at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, called the Everglades of the North, provide a home for bald eagles, herons, egrets, and more. Outdoor Photographer magazine called the refuge one of the top 25 spots worldwide where professional nature photographers go. Of course, everyday photographers and nature lovers find plenty to enjoy there, too.

• It’s easy to get out on the water here, whether or not you have a boat. Join one of the weekly sails on the skipjack Nathan of Dorchester. Take a cruise on a paddlewheeler. Rent a kayak or charter a fishing boat. And if you have your own boat, there are 20 free boat ramps and several marinas around the county, plus plenty of quiet, uncrowded anchorages.

• We’re known for our crab cakes (not to mention steamed crabs, cream of crab soup, and crab any which way). Crab cakes at Old Salty’s and Suicide Bridge restaurants recently earned ink in Southern Living and USA Today. Jimmie & Sook’s cream of crab soup was named among the top 10 in Maryland by the Baltimore Sun. Oysters are also a claim to fame. Dorchester is home to a growing number of oyster farms, in addition to the traditional methods of oystering. You’ll find fresh and local seafood on the menus of most of our restaurants.

• Famed Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman was born in Dorchester and led her escapes to freedom from here. Find out more about the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway at

• Bicycling for all ages is increasingly popular in Dorchester, as are endurance events such as triathlons, and running, swimming, and cycling races and events. The ChesapeakeMan triathlon was named among the top 10 worldwide. See the list of 2014 endurance events at,63.
