About Susie Graham

Steve and Susie moved from Northern Virginia to raise four boys in a rural setting. They have lived and loved this home-totally remodeled to accommodate their large family and many pets. Now as empty nesters, new endeavors free up the family compound to allow others to experience the incredible seasons and opportunities of the Eastern Shore Life.

Susie Graham purchased this house in 2000

Why Susie Graham chose Eastern Shore

FourSail was used as a primary home for 17-years-lived in and loved by a family that enjoyed all aspects of Bay living. The home is large and open-designed for family gatherings around the kitchen, living room, porch & pool area. It is outfitted with small boats, fishing gear, fire pit, and much more that make this property a perfect family retreat. 5-minutes by car from St. Michael's-a bike & ferry ride to Oxford, or just stay put & enjoy FourSail.

What makes this house unique

Quiet dead-end street, surrounded by water, guest cottage-close to everything but far enough from the crowds-a unique property for the family retreat.

Great views, clean lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our long weekend at this beautiful home. Great water views. Pet friendly. Quiet, peaceful neighborhood. Top of the line kitchen appliances. Really nice decor. Superb wifi. Lots of room for relaxing, including a terrific screened-in porch. Best of all: Susie is a very gracious host!

Lovely location but disappointments with the house

  • 3 of 5

The quiet location is great, in the middle of farmlands with easy access to grocery shopping and Easton. The large backyard with shade was a nice place for kids to play and a very nice pool was enjoyed by all. Chairs by the dock were nice for watching beautiful sunsets. The house is large with a good flow so each family member and their family had their own space. The large screened-in porch was great for the kids to color but we couldn't eat outside due to the many good sized holes in the screens. Also there were no shades to block the afternoon and early evening sun so the table wasn't usable during those times. We were disappointed with the cleanliness of the place. We were the first week-long rental of the season and it wasn't cleaned recently. There were flies in the kitchen which took a couple of days to eliminate. The pots and pans were unusable in our view with chipped Teflon and much wear and tear. We used the grill on the Viking range, loved the Sub-zero refrigerator and used the Miele electric oven since there were no instructions on using the oven (strong odor of gas when turned on). The air conditioning on the second floor failed on the second day which was particularly difficult for us since we had very young children who needed naps and we had hot weather (mostly 90's) all week. The owner's surrogate was quick to get someone to the house to fix it. Two repairman did the best they could but the unit was very old. We opted to make do instead of interrupting our stay with another repair. The only bathtub had chipped porcelain. There were no instructions left except the name of who to call with problems and the Wi-Fi password (Wi-Fi only worked well in the kitchen which was an inconvenience as some needed to work ). We have rented 4 houses and this is the only one where there was no notebook explaining how to use appliances, emergency numbers, nuances of the house, etc. The apartment size Swedish washer and dryer had numbers for cycles and after an email with the owner we were able to get the correct cycle. The pool was dirty when we arrived and no one came to clean it but we knew how to clean and deal with the skimmer and heater. Susie, the owner was out of the country and was responsive via email and listened to our issues. She explained she usually welcomes the guests and explains everything in person but obviously that didn't work for us. Overall, an expensive but disappointing rental.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this feedback. I appreciate any and all, even the negative. I do apologize that the AC became an issue. But these things happen and I appreciate the fact that our local repair men and women were available at 8 o'clock on a Sunday night. It's very nice to be a part of a small community that can react that quickly. We did need to have that compressor replaced on a unit that was only 6 years old. The screens have been fixed and pots & pans are being replaced. I do need to take issue with the cleanliness part. The wonderful cleaning lady that I have used for 16 years spent eight hours in the house and I got her supplemental help hiring two additional people each spending 4 hours. That would be a total of 16 hours of cleaning to the house in preparation of your stay. My home should not have been dirty. The heated pool is serviced 2 times a week and should never appear dirty because it has an automatic pool vacuum that runs hours each day. Again, I apologize that you didn't have the same experience as EVERY other guest has to date but thank you for the feedback, it will help in the future and I have already addressed each of these issues. Future guests, please take into account the fact that the guest that stayed the very next week after this guest has already requested the same week next year. You can read their review.

Beautiful oasis; great for families

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end, we had an amazing experience. Susie was a perfect host--attentive and helpful, greeting us when we arrived and giving our large group tips on the local area. The home and property were absolutely amazing--from the beautifully appointed home, the chef's kitchen, the spacious rooms, to the pool, dock, kayak and firepit, we couldn't have asked for a better weekend rental. Thank you!

A great stay at the Eastern Shore.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time in this beautiful house! Our parents and siblings live abroad and it was their first time at the Eastern Shore. We can't stop talking about how much fun we had. We stayed 8 adults and a baby (Thank you Susie for making sure we'll have a baby crib in the house) and everybody enjoyed every minute of it- those who love cooking didn't want to leave the spacious, fully equipped gourmet kitchen, the others enjoyed kayaking, and we all spent time sitting in the beautiful screened - in porch.

The gorgeous town of St. Michaels is only few minutes away and it was great to explore it.

Susie is great and she made sure to answer every question we had, and to make our stay really lovely. We cannot wait to go back!
