About Diana Bartell
My husband and I fell in love with Saint Michaels 20 Years ago during an anniversary weekend. We began looking for a weekend home and were fortunate to find the cottage in 2006. As our family grew we renovated a slightly larger home near by. We decided to keep the cottage for our family to enjoy and now offer it to guests to enjoy its many charms as well.
Diana Bartell purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Diana Bartell chose Saint Michaels
The location is ideal! It's on a gorgeous corner lot with the Miles River at the end of the street and the views and sunsets are incredible. You can easily walk or bike to town -- my daughter and her friends like to go to Justines ice cream in the summer and I enjoy biking to the farmers market for flowers and delicious pastries. My husband and I also love to run and take advantage of the SM race every year. The starting line is just down the street, perhaps a 3 minute walk. During the warmer months we also ride or walk into town or the harbor to enjoy the unique dining/shopping
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage has an enchanting feel to it. A sign in the kitchen says it all "This is my happy Place" We hope it is for our guests as well. The screened in porch is a favorite spot to relax, read a book, enjoy a glass of wine in the evening or coffee in the morning. We hope the welcome basket with baked breakfast breads, savory snacks and chocolate will help begin your relaxing stay.

This house was everything we needed for our weekend in St. Michaels. We were in town for the running festival and Diana went above and beyond to make our stay that much more enjoyable. I 100% recommend this house!
Charming comfortable and amazing personal touch
Such wonderful hospitality
My friend and I stayed at this lovely cottage for a weekend in April. The cottage is lovely and very well appointed but what I really appreciated was the hospitality and all of the small details from homemade bread to a lovely fruit and cheese plate.
Everything was perfect with this property. It was very well appointed, spotless and extremely comfortable! Loved the location also! Fresh flowers and yummy banana bread topped it off!!!
Beautiful, charming, and relaxing!
From the bedside chocolates to the fresh flowers in every room, not one detail was overlooked. The bar has been set - this was our first experience with a Home Away rental and we were completely blown away by Diana’s attention to every detail.
She made us feel like good friends with her welcome package, fresh fruit and cheese board, wine, bottled water, and amenities equivalent to those in a fine hotel.
The cottage’s location rounds out the experience; it is within easy walking distance to all retail and eating establishments. Diana’s dining recommendations were spot on.
Reliable internet, spotless, tasteful decor, and a wine refrigerator - everything was perfect!
Our only disappointment was the weather. It was too chilly for us to enjoy the welcoming side porch with a view of the river. Next time ...
Great home in a great location
We had a very nice weekend in St. Michael's. The cottage is a few minutes walk form the town center. Diana received us with a very generous welcome basket. The house was clean and nicely furnished. Thanks for a great weekend!
