About the Property

Sleeps 10 - 3 bedrooms plus sleeping porch and pull out sofabed and 2.5 baths

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'!

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!

Do you have kids or are you a kid at heart? You will love the children’s playhouse made from a hollowed out mature juniper! If you are asked for the entry password, try ‘Hoopers Hill’…

Day trips to the Blackwater Nature Preserve (fws.gov/blackwater), the Harriett Tubman Visitors Center (nps.gov/hatu, newly opened!), Barren Island Oyster Company (barrenislandoysters.com), Hooper’s Island Oyster Aquaculture Company (cgoysters.com), and Historic Cambridge are great, and local charters, including Sawyers Charters (sawyercharters.com) and Hoopers Island Expeditions (hiexped.com), are musts.

Built in 1918, your house is ~3,000 sq/ft, beautifully preserved, newly updated and set in a traditional waterfront town. It has a gourmet kitchen with Bertazzoni and Kitchenaid appliances, a wainscoted study, ballroom sized living room, and formal dining room with antique glass chandelier. The master bedroom has a king bed with en suite bathroom. The upstairs hall bathroom is for the remaining two upstairs bedrooms (2 twins and a queen). The two main level sleeping areas include spring double futon in the sleeping porch and great queen pull out. The house comfortably sleeps 10 with plenty of space to move around. The 60" TV and DVD player in the great room of perfect for movie nights. The master bedroom also has a TV and DVD Player. Active mosquito control plan in place. WiFi is available for guests.

Why the Owner Chose Fishing Creek, MD, USA:
Our family loves unwinding at Hoopers Hill, whether it is fishing off the shoreline, picking pecans or persimmons, collecting sea glass or arrowheads on our beach, lounging in the sun, playing games outside or inside (booo, only if raining). We love to just take in all of the gorgeous views! We reconnect as a family in this idyllic place.

Other guest access: BBQ grill 2 Adult Bikes Birch, pecan and willow shade trees If not swimming, kayaking or boating, the island is great for walking and bike riding.
