Why Matt Bogden property manager chose Westover
I feel in love with the Eastern Shore. They call this place the 'Land of Pleasant Living'', and it is. Everyone is very friendly and the community is tight, a bit like Mayberry in the old Andy Griffith TV show.
What makes this Cottage unique
Frenchtown is on an Island. You will go over three bridges to get to the house, so it has an island culture.. And there is only one way on and off, so there is very little traffic, nice and quiet, the way I like it. Sleepy little town. Plus you can't beat the views, water from every window, including the bathroom! Most city folks pull the blind, but I don't; there's only birds to look in and see you, and I like looking out to see them. I love looking at the Great Blue Herons that sit on the pilings out back. Sometimes we get White Herons, quite a thrill to see. I love all the wildlife in the area, the proximity to the Wildlife refuges where I like to take a long walk everyday, the beautiful views, easy bike riding, and great neighbors. Many of the people who live in Frenchtown are still working watermen who bring back the crabs they catch and keep them in the floats at the crab houses out front. So wonderful to live in a place time forgot

Absolutely lovely, charming cottage with gorgeous light
A great place to stay. Beautiful home built in 1899, gorgeous waterfront surroundings.
My family had a wonderful stay here. The home had everything we needed and was very comfortable. We kayak, so this was perfect for us. The neighborhood is quiet and folks are friendly and helpful. Having dinner on the screened in porch in the evenings while watching the sun set was a personal favorite.
We enjoyed great views and kayaking. Very quiet and relaxing. Great family time. House had everything we needed.
We spent a week at this vintage home in the marshes of Westover, MD. The home is a great place if you want to get away from it all if that's what you're looking for. It is quite a ride just to get to the closest food store. There is one local restaurant, the Hide Away Grille in Rumbly at the marina. It can be seen from the house and is a 5 minute ride. Actually the best simple seafood we found after eating in Pokomoke City, Princess Anne and other larger towns. The sunrise and sunset views are beautiful. Very peaceful. They feel like they personally belong to you. The home itself was relatively comfortable. Wish the double beds were queens but we survived. Bed lines were clean and fresh and the window A/C units were quite adequate.The couch in the living room which is sold as another sleeping option needs to be replaced. Bathroom/laundry facilities where nice— clean, and everything worked properly. Good shower. Cooking was easy with enough pots, pans, etc. to make pretty much anything. The dock out back is dangerous and not usable. We did not use the kayaks, but used the bikes a little—tires were low and could find no air pump. So we did no extensive riding. There is some nice original art throughout and furnishings that fit the look which gives it the home good personality. We brought our small dog which worked out well. Long walks down the very lightly traveled road. Stopped to chat with folks crabbing on the small bridges crossing the many small inlets. Everyone in the area waves when they ride by. I must admit I was stopped for exceeding the speed limit on one of the roads out to the house and I must say even the local police were very nice. They let me off with a warning. Keep your eyes out for the signs because they shift speeds quite a bit and because the landscape is very rural they come up with you realizing it. Don't expect to be entertained or to find entertainment close by. We ventured to Chincateague Island twice which were great day trips. It was a great place to read, go for walks, and enjoy nature. The home was clean to our standard. Not immaculate, but it's not a new hotel. All-in-all we enjoyed our stay.
Serenity Among the Marsh Grass
Our time in Frenchtown-Rumbly was very relaxing and a very nice way to enjoy the bay. We woke to 360º water views every day for a week--it does the soul so much good. We enjoyed birdwatching and reading from the two porches. There is so much to see and learn when you truly slow down and take in your surroundings with your eyes, ears, and nose. The little dockside restaurant in Rumbly was very good, too, and a nice 'outing'. We made easy day trips to Chincoteague, Assateague National Seashore, Berlin, and Crisfield while there, just to soak in as much crab, salt air, and antiqueing as we could take. Thank you for opening your home to us--we all had a great time!
Got the serenity I was looking for
Located in Frenchtown, MD, 30 min south of Salisbury, MD on Chesapeake Bay's Eastern Shore. This is a private home on an island in the middle of ten thousand acres of salt marsh and near a national wildlife management area. Views from the bedroom enjoy waterfront sunrises, water views from the living room & dining area, and the front porch enjoys waterfront sunsets. Perfect for a very quiet getaway. Two bikes and kayaks available for your use. Soak up mother nature. This quaint Eastern Shore town is on an island looking over Tangier Sound on the Chesapeake Bay.
