About the property

Large Historic home on 8.5 acres

This large beautiful home with 3 outdoor porches welcomes guests to a lovingly restored interior by the artist owner, who fell in love with Hooper's Island and now resides on the island just a few miles away.

Envision yourself gazing out the window,watching the sunset with a cup of hot cocoa in hand, as fat snowflakes drift lazily through the air.

Every room restored and decorated with fine furnishings hand selected by the owner. Hardwood floors throughout oriental rugs,arched doorways and beautiful glass French doors in living room and dining room area.

Each room is finely appointed and offers all the comforts and ammenties of home, including a washer and dryer in a full size laundry room mudroom! The living room has Flat screen HD television and DVD player and stereo systems.

A great home to host your family reunion get together. The kitchen is large and there are lots of dining spaces .

We have a group of artist's that like to come and Pleinair Paint for a few days. Sunrise or sunset this is an amazing place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle.

Book clubs and photo clubs travel here frequently. If you love to ride motorcycles or bicycles this is the place to ride your bikes for miles without traffic, a scenic route the entire way.

Fishing and Hunting throughout each season of the year bring your buddies and set up camp at this homestead there's plenty of fish and game.

If you want to come by boat there's Jones Marina right across the street within walking distance.

The first floor has a large bedroom suite with two queen beds, a first floor bath with a large old fashioned ball and claw foot soaking tub.

The second floor has 5 bedrooms and 2 baths with showers. This home has views from every room and loads of charm and character. It was a residence and office of Doctor Mead who was the island's doctor. Many residence recall going there as a child to be seen by the good Doctor.

The side porch off the kitchen can accomodate a large gathering. Hydrangeas and bluebird boxes surround the home, the large ground that surround the home are great for volleyball,softball or a game of kickball!

Great Party spot.

  • 3 of 5

The Photo of the property is...from a creative angle, as the property is surrounded on several sides by neighbors. Smells like septic around exterior of home. Bring paper products. Owner did not know internet password, nor make any effort to find it. The area is beautiful.

Fun old place

  • 4 of 5

This rental was a great place to get away from it all. It's surprisingly in the middle of nowhere which is more than half of the charm! If you are a nature lover, then be prepared- Ospreys and Bald Eagles flying all over the place :)

The house was more than comfortable and was able to accommodate our group with great ease (11). Beds were comfortable and the kitchen was nicely stocked with all the utensils one would need.

If you need to go out for a bite, Old Salty's is the place- right up the street! Also, there is a great little general store for any supplies that you may need, including bait for fishing:)

Of particular note, with an old house like this, and many guests, be sure to flush each toilet one at a time. There was an issue with grease backing up the line to the septic tank. Other than that, the house is great!

Great location, great price... if I was a teacher, my stay there would get an A.

Nice weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Sweet and affordable little rental apartment. Great water views, quiet, and cozy. You can see so many stars here, and it's got a nice firepit area. Old Salty's is right down the street and they served us food (delicious crabcakes) even after closing. Close to a wonderful nature preserve where we saw egrets and bald eagles. Half hour's drive to the cute little town of Cambridge, with good food, nice people, and a great little brew pub. A nice, low-key alternative to the overpriced bed and breakfast places of St. Michaels.

Perfect place for large group meeting!

  • 4 of 5

We are a group of artists who needed a place where we could gather for meetings comfortably, yet be close to beautiful scenes to paint. This property was perfect! Elegantly appointed, this house has character and history, and we felt like we were staying in a favorite aunts home. The many rooms and porches allow for privacy as well. We all wished we could have stayed longer!
