Lovely gathering Place on the Eastern Shore

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered to celebrate my father's 95th birthday. Sharon's home provided plenty of cozy corners to visit with family, room outside for the children to play, and a kitchen well appointed to join together and prepare breakfast together. We even survived a Nor'Easter together and slept like babies through the howling winds. Thank you Sharon for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Cee Jaye - your comments were so heart warming because I cherish wonderful family gatherings and am thrilled you had such a nice one! Those weather conditions for sure made you happy to have a roof over your head and a warm kitchen to feed the group. You're welcome back any time! My Best, Sharon

Our group, grandmother, 2 sets of parents, 5 children aged 2 - 8, thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night family holiday here. The house is very comfortable, attractive and spacious, well-equipped inside and out. The children loved frolicking on the expansive sweeping lawn surrounding the house on all sides and on the small sandy beach and kayaking with parents in the bay. Even though it was early April and not everything was open in the surrounding towns, there was plenty to do and explore. The owner was very helpful and always responded promptly to emails. Thank you Sharon.

House and property are beautiful, more than comfortably accomodated three generations.

  • 5 of 5

We were busy and on the go but an afternoon of relaxing, reading a book, and enjoying the view in one of the many inviting spots would have been a delight. And summertime here would be great! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We love visiting the Holly Harbor House. The setting is perfect and the home is so comfortable! Kayaking, fishing and crabbing are a nice break and the home is just lovely. We plan to return again.

A perfect end to the summer.

  • 5 of 5

After the glowing reviews and beautiful imagery, it wasn't hard to imagine that a week at Holly Harbor would provide the perfect end to summer. With three generations traveling from as near as NJ and as far as Paris to spend an all too infrequent week together, any travel/work/life stress vanished immediately and it felt as if we we'd all just arrived to a family home that we'd spent a lifetime in. The beauty of the home is matched by the tranquility of the property, and with so much to see and do in the immediate vicinity, we found it hard to tear ourselves away from Holly Harbor. It was our first trip to the Eastern Shore, but will not be our last, and it would be hard to imagine Sharon's lovely home not being a part of that return.

Amazing spot for a friends' get-together

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful long weekend with our college friends at this beautiful place. The house and property are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is well-appointed with a large refrigerator, stove and lots of counter space. It even has an ice machine which is very convenient. We were lucky to have beautiful weather all 4 days so we got to enjoy all the activities available. We all took turns kayaking, canoeing, biking, swimming, and playing lawn games. We grilled on the Weber and ate dinners at the large teak table on the patio. There are lots of spots to gather for the whole group or for smaller groups for quiet conversations. In the evenings we gathered around the fire pit and marveled at the stars. We returned home with lots of happy memories and hopes to return to this lovely spot in the future!
