Your historic waterfront getaway has 3 acres with more than 350 feet of rip rapped waterfront, sunrises over the Honga River and unobstructed sunsets over the Chesapeake Bay! Discover 'Hoopers Hill'! The largest property on Hoopers island and a historic and stately Home.
Your private beach is one of the best places to collect sea glass on the island. What kind of art or craft do you want to plan for! Or a driftwood wall hanging! You might find an arrowhead, fossil or lost treasure!
Your vacation could include crabbing, oystering, fishing, going for a long run or bike ride, relaxing by the private beach, kayaking (2 singles and 1 double), playing a game of soccer, Frisbee or football, getting energy out on the trampoline, reading a good book in a hammock, making your own crab cakes (lump crab + mayo + Ritz crackers + Old Bay = YUM), having a delicious meal at Old Salty’s.(oldsaltys.com), grilling the day’s catch, playing a good board game, catching up on movies, campfires and ghost stories under a starry sky, or just unplugging to catch up with family and friends.
Fresh crab is available from 6 picking houses in Fishing Creek (seafood.maryland.gov/crab-and-oyster-processing-facilities/). Just call before heading over to arrange for an order of fresh or steamed crabs, or lump/backfin meat by the pound!
