The house is just 150 feet from the water's edge. Most of the property lies alongside a private protected creek (2 to 4 feet deep) which is a tributary of Fishing Creek which is a tributary to the Little Choptank River. Fishing Creek is 12 feet deep at its center. We offer a pier with two boat slips on this protected private creek.
Enjoy breathtaking views of the Little Choptank River & Fishing Creek from our expansive deck and enjoy the massaging jets in our therapeutic spa year round. Peace and quiet are abundant on this property, most of all. We are directly across from McKeil Point which is just north of Madison Bay. The house faces the south.
When you are done swimming in the pool, you can take an outdoor shower and wash the chlorine off your body with hot and cold running water in the outdoor private shower stall before drying off and going in the house.
At night, you can enjoy sitting in the hot tub with a refreshing beverage while you view the brilliant stars and milky way galaxy. There is no light pollution surrounding this property.

His son, Scott, carries on Roger's legacy of honor and respect for everyone.
Why the Owner Chose Cambridge, MD, USA:
Bayberry Cove offers plenty of room to relax and enjoy what nature has to offer. Get out of the house and go outside. Go biking, walking, kayaking, fishing, crabbing, sunning yourself, swimming, hot tubbing, grilling, antiquing, shopping, bar hopping, restaurant hopping, museum going, and go see all the Cambridge and Dorchester county has to offer. This property has no light pollution. See shooting stars at night from the hot tub (recommend turning all house and hot tub lights completely off first!). You will likely see them every clear night. You can see the Milky way in vivid color. It is quiet and peaceful. Watch Osprey's and Heron fish all day long. You name it - it is in the heart of Chesapeake country. And don't forget to visit Blackwater Refuge - the Nation's largest federal bird sanctuary just fifteen minutes away from our property. :0) ~ Scott
