                                                              Owen R.Maryland

                                                              Last year’s fall visit to the Shipwright’s Cottage has been followed up with a New Year’s weekend. I will tell you that what makes this cottage specials has not changed, only the weather.

                                                              The local wildfowl now visit fallow corn fields as hawks squawk overhead. Sika dear are visible at the edges of fields of cover crops and a skim of ice, thicker at water’s edge is visible. Winter has come to Wittman but the restaurants are busy, the town of Saint Michael’s sparkles in the evening and the Shipwright’s Cottage continues to be wonderful spot to spend some downtime. Too bad the football games were not better.

                                                              Well appointed, functional and just central enough - including water views on two sides – to be a memorable hideaway any time of year. The representations made are reliable as the communications from the owner. If you visit enough of these kinds of places, you will realize how valuable those two items are.

                                                              Great Location for Us

                                                              Hans V.

                                                              This quaint cottage is just perfect for the two of us. It provided a launch pad for biking, kayaking, and long walks. Close to historic St Michael's and all its attractions. Plan to come back next year.

                                                              Simply Wonderful

                                                              Rick M.

                                                              I selected this property because of the consistent 5-star reviews and comments. They were correct; it is a charming, beautifully decorated, and fully equipped place to relax. Loved the peace and quiet and views of the water. When our daughter, who has a small second home in St.Michaels, came to see our accommodations at the Shipwright Cottage, she was equally dazzled and immediately took a couple of cards saying this would be a perfect place to put up other guests visiting them. It's only an easy 10 minute drive to St. Michaels. Highly recommend this property.

                                                              The house is fabulous...kitchen and bath updated,, bright, cheerful. Beautiful!

                                                              Overall a great property and a great value!

                                                              Nice rental

                                                              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

                                                              Mike S.

                                                              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.
