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 Eastern Shore

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.


Car: recommended

Some of our favorite places include the Chesapeake Maritime museum a waterfront museum that hosts many wonderful exhibits and festivals. Other favorites include taking a cruise on the PATRIOT, wine tasting at the Saint Michaels Winery, beer tasting at the brewery, unique shopping in town, and dining out!

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every moment of our stay in this lovely, immaculate, perfectly appointed, beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable cottage - and my sister and I are very picky! Everything, from the linens to the dishes to the appliances to the bedding to the bikes and welcome basket, exceeded our expectations. The only disappointment was that we had to leave. We especially appreciated the fresh flowers throughout the house - a special unexpected touch. The mattresses were very comfortable and the cottage was filled with all the amenities needed for our visit. We so enjoyed watching the sun rise and riding bikes all over St. Michaels. The location is perfect. We are already planning our next visit. Thank you!

Quiet, Comfy Cottage in St. Michael's

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very convenient to, yet still away from, the bustle of downtown. The bikes were such a treat, and the owner went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. You really can't ask for much more! We would recommend this to anyone looking for a getaway to St. Michael's.

Best Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Diana was a great host! We were welcomed with a sweet note, and snack basket with home made goodies. The home was larger than expected - pictures make it look smaller. The screened in porch was perfect since our weather did not coroporate. All of the beds were so comfortable. Very cute cottage for our visit to St. Michaels.

Welcoming, clean, and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely stay here again if we come back to St Michaels. The property was extremely clean, well kept, and perfect for our needs. Upon arrival we were greeted by a very nice thank you note from the owner, fresh flowers, and many goodies. And she set out fun toys for the kids to play with during our stay.

Wonderful, cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We came to St Michaels for a nearby cycling event and decided to make a weekend of

it. St Michaels is a quaint, historic waterfront town and this cottage has the same historic, comfortable vibe. Walk or bike to town for

shopping and dining. We loved all the thoughtful touches and details provided by the owner - cheese and fruit, banana bread, fresh brother and his wife wanted to buy the place and move in! Believe the reviews- you won't be disappointed in this rental.
