Nice rental

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is well located, with lovely and comfortable furnishings. It is quite well equipped. We used the kayaks, but found the steep and craggy put-in point a challenge for the less than surefooted.

Lots of historic small communities to explore with friendly people and great food.

A Sanctuary For Two Weary Souls

  • 5 of 5

About 2/3rds into a 2,000 mile, 3 week road trip, we chose to spend 5 nights at the Shipwright's Cottage. It was a wise decision. While the property is not waterfront per se, you can see two wide creeks from darn near every window. The "neighborhood" is quiet and serene. The houses are scattered apart, so most of the sounds we heard came from birds and cicadas. Nothing interrupted our sleep in the comfortable queen bed upstairs. The a/c units kept the inside quite comfortable day and night. The full bath has limited counter/shelf space if you are the type who brings their salon with them on holiday, but the two of us managed just fine and enjoyed the spacious shower (no tub) with plenty of water pressure. Downstairs there was a comfortable couch in which to watch tv or sunsets. We preferred one of the two nearby beaches suggested by the owner. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare whatever meals we chose to prepare ourselves. It also contains a washer/dryer in one unit. We definitely needed that, but be sure to read the directions carefully. The bikes and kayaks available our use were of high quality and we enjoyed both, though use extreme caution when launching the kayaks on the rocky shore. Once in the water, you are only limited by your own skills and stamina. Same with the bikes. Riding around dusk will bring you into contact with many of the deer who inhabit the area. Nearby St. Michael's provides a full service grocery store and a wide variety of restaurants if you decide on that option. Opportunities to charter boats or simply rent a small outboard abound in the region, so you can use this spacious cottage as your haven or as your base of operations-either way we found it ideal for our needs.

Quiet and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

View of green outdoors on all sides and of water, not far away, on two. Tastefully furnished. Opportunity to kayak and bicycle much appreciated. Seems remote but is near many sites well worth visiting.

Quaint cottage perfect for a weekend or week-long getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has great water views from nearly every window. Great for close friends. Very easy to get to St. Michaels and other nearby attractions. The owners are very accommodating and quick to respond. The cottage was well-stocked with essentials. Had a great time and look forward to returning.

Charming, Well-Appointed, Well-Located Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a five night stay at Shipwright Cottage. Nestled in a sweet waterfront community that we later learned is called "Pot Pie"! The cottage is perfectly decorated and appointed for a Chesapeake holiday. Soothing water views on two sides of the cottage. Very convenient to charming St. Michael's and a quick trip further gets you to Easton in no time. Whether you are looking for a quiet place to hunker down and enjoy the Eastern Shore or want a jumping off point for all the fabulous things to do nearby, Shipwright Cottage is perfect. We look forward to returning!

Quiet and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Every window opens to views of water. You're on a peninsula and there are other houses nearby but it is in a rural area and the overall impression is peacefully and lovely. The house is charming. Nicely furnished with new appliances and the owner has provided most everything you need so there is no need for last minute shopping for salt and pepper or dishwashing liquid. It is located near Tilghman Island, which is worth seeing, and the town of St Michael's. Just far enough away from the town to avoid tourists. I would recommend this for families or good friends as there is no door to the master bedroom, so the two bedrooms share the bathroom. But there is a powder room downstairs which is convenient.

Altogether we were very happy here and loved coming " home " to this very special cottage.
