Beatiful property that made it a very relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time for our week long family vacation! We enjoyed the large property which allowed us to do all kinds of hard games and the area by the water with the chairs and hammock were used heavily by all! The pool was fantastic and warm and we had a lot of wonderful family time in the pool! The dock was perfect for our boat and was in great shape! We had a great time and will be coming back next year! Thanks for sharing your wonderful home!

Our 2017 Girl's Week was enhanced with our stay in this lovely home. We loved the swimming pool, kayaks, and spacious back yard. Plenty of places to relax inside and out to enjoy the view and comfortable beds to sleep in at night. It was just isolated enough but not so far off the beaten path to be hard to get to any place we wanted to go. St. Michaels, Oxford and Easton all offered wonderful things to do and delicious places to eat. If we ever travel back to this area, we would definitely stay in this home again. Thank you to the friendly and helpful owners for offering your home to us!

"Rooms With A View"

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at this lovely and large home that sits serenely in a beautiful wooded area, right on the water and also with a pool that is very refreshing on warm days. A hammock and several Adirondack chairs beckon to you as soon as you walk outside, and if relaxation is what you are looking for, this property is perfect. While we were there, a new teak table with eight chairs was delivered and set up on the back patio. It will, no doubt, get a lot of use, especially if you plan on cooking on the grill and serving dinner outside.

We were in Oxford to attend our son's wedding, and wanted a place to stay near the wedding venue, with room for some of the other guests to stay, as well. This property was just what we needed. It was roomy and pretty much met all our needs, especially that of being both a quiet refuge, and at times, a place to visit with family and friends who had also traveled to be at the wedding.

It was a memorable week for our family, and everyone who either stayed with us or merely dropped by for a visit, unfailingly remarked on the "wonderful house" we were so lucky to have rented. Thanks for all.

Beautiful, Tranquil Waterfront Gem

  • 5 of 5

We rented Sharon Buchanan's beautiful home for a long weekend getaway with a group of friends. The waterfront property and view is absolutely stunning. The home is lovely, comfortable and perfect for a group gathering or family gathering. The amenities include bikes, kayaks, canoes, yard games, etc. which were just fantastic, and were thoroughly enjoyed by our active group. We can't wait to go back!!!

We were two couples each with a little kid under five for a quick weekend getaway and were amazed at the house! It's as beautiful in person as it is in the pictures. Very clean and organized - we found everything we needed with ease. And it is so clean and well maintained - it does not feel like you're at a rental house, you feel like you're staying with a friend. We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend and could not have asked for more. I would return to this property again and again. Sharon was very helpful and made everything easy for us as we set up the weekend. In addition there is all sorts of helpful information in the house once you are there.

We spent almost the whole weekend outside relaxing or playing. The little kids especially loved the little sandy beach area where they could walk in and get their feet wet and toss rocks into the water. The parents loved being able to sit in the hammock or chairs and keep an eye on them with a cold beverage in hand!

Quintessential Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Holly Harbor has become a name etched in my family's memory. I don't have enough superlatives to describe our experience this Thanksgiving.

From the moment I drove down the long driveway and heard the sound of dozens of gaggling geese on the water until the moment we pulled away from the house to cross back over the Bay Bridge to return to our busy lives, we could not have been more thankful for every facet of our four days at Holly Harbor. From family dinners, to restful sleeps, to reading, kayaking , biking, walking, to talks around the fire pit, our three generations of family members had an experience they will never forget .

Sharon was delightful to work with. She was always responsive and communicative which was very much appreciated. The house and grounds presented perfectly and we wanted for nothing. The only resounding request at the end of our stay was " When can we go back again?". We hope to make that happen!!
