About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Cranberry Cottage is a picturesque waterfront cottage on Cobb Island in southern Maryland. Surrounded by the Potomac River, Wicomico River and Neale Sound, this small island offers visitors the opportunity to experience the peaceful, natural beauty of southern Maryland waterway communities.
This charming cottage is recently refreshed and fully furnished with both new and vintage pieces to create a casual coastal vacation atmosphere. In addition to the separate bedroom (queen sized bed) and hall bath, there is a sleep sofa (queen) and pull out chair (twin) that comfortably accommodate additional guests in the spacious open living area that overlooks the water. The quaint eat-in kitchen is fully equipped for easy family dining. A fully furnished enclosed wrap-around porch overlooking the water allows guests to watch the passing pleasure and work boats while enjoying a cup of coffee at sunrise or an evening dinner at sunset. The 100 foot pier and dock give visitors direct access to the calm tidal water perfect for kayaking, canoeing, fishing and crabbing (bring your own equipment).
Traffic is very light on Cobb Island making it perfect for biking, walking and enjoying the native wildlife (osprey, herons, swans and ducks) adding to the serenity of the peaceful waterside. Vintage adult bikes are available in the lower level garage for guest use. Both fishing and crabbing can be done directly from our private pier . A wonderful community playground is just a five minute walk away while a country grocery store, marina, local restaurants, The Rivah and Schuttlebutt, are also on the island. For additional dining and a taste of local seafood try Captain John’s Crab House/Marina and Shymansky’s Restaurant that are located just over the bridge.
To satisfy your touring spirit, Cobb Island is within easy driving distances of the museums and monuments of Washington DC, historic Mt. Vernon and Woodlawn Plantations in Virginia, the Civil War Battlefields of Fredericksburg, Virginia and St. Mary's City (early settler's village) in southern Maryland. Sail and motor boaters can make short day trips to various sites within the Potomac River watershed.

NOTE: Cranberry Cottage is complemented by Waverly Cottage, a two bedroom rental on the adjoining property (sleeps 6) thereby providing an opportunity to vacation with family and friends in neighboring homes. See our listing for Waverly Cottage Vacation Rentals #7070936. More details on this wonderful feature are available via telephone or e-mail inquiries.
