  • Still smiling - possibly our best shore vacation, EVER

    "We had THE. BEST. VACATION. EVER at Cedar Point and I can’t thank Brian and family enough for the chance to experience the amazing people, seafood, and life of Church creek. We vacation on the shore regularly, but this one was special. So relaxing, so friendly, and a house so perfectly set up to do what you need to do on vacation, and that is RELAX. There were so many incredible experiences in one week that I can’t name them all, but I will try to - and include some suggestions for anyone else staying there, as follows: - Crabbing - yes, yes, yes! So easy and so much fun - crab from the dock and enjoy the fruits of your labor that same day - On the water - the kids swam in Church Creek EVERY DAY. No jellies, amazingly enough. They also kayaked (we brought some little sit-on-tops) and I have a SUP that I paddled around - if you haven’t tried SUP, it’s very relaxing. Unless kids are with you, then it’s less so - In the water. The kids spent all day in swimsuits. They were either on the creek, in the creek, or in the pool - so lovely - Emily’s - we shopped there almost every day. GREAT suggestion to try it - super fresh farm food - and the bacon. Mmmm, the bacon. Oh, and the honey. And the corn. Mmmm, mmm. - Soft and Salty - Jo Ann down at Ragged Point!!! - the BEST crab cakes in the area - AND SHE HAS SMITH ISLAND CAKE!! - Jet-skis! We rented from Blackwater at the Hyatt - $65 for 30 mins, but worth it to tick it off the bucket list. vroom, vroom - Fishing - the highlight of the week was going out on the Bay for an afternoon/evening of tubing and fishing. We all had an incredible time - caught 4 rockfish which we ate the next evening with Jo Ann’s crab cakes and Emily’s corn. It was a feast fit for a king. Combined with RAR beer (from Cambridge - great microbrewery). Also awesome. - Fine dining - we ate at Bistro Poplar on Sunday when they do tapas - amazing tapas, perfect for a nice dinner out - would highly recommend it We love the house, the location, and the people of that area. We had a flat tire while driving around and everyone stopped to see if we were ok. Then we went to the garage in Cambridge where they wouldn’t take any money for detecting a small hole but realizing that the tire was mush. We were there 45 mins - no fee. And they told us about Smith Island cake. Talk about good people."

  • Escape the Rat Race!!!!!!

    "If you really want to get away from traffic, noise and neighbors….if you have ever dreamed of living in a restored historic house on the water surrounded by acres of land……this is it! You don’t visit Fox Trappe Farmhouse….you experience it! The house itself is furnished in antiques, original artwork and heirlooms belonging to the owners…Leslie, Thom and Molly. There are many sitting areas inside…kitchen, dining/living room, family room and library….plus 2 screened porches and two outdoor seating areas…all with water views. Everyone can find a place to chill and read or just watch the water and wildlife. The quiet at Fox Trappe Farm was a much appreciated shock to our suburban senses. The pool is huge. We estimated a minimum 40x20 feet. It is crystal clear without the chemical smell as it is a meticulously maintained salt water pool. There is furniture, 2 umbrellas, lots of pool toys and a great outdoor shower. Bikes were very fun. Beautiful hydrangeas and other flowers abound. The charcoal grill looks brand new, but we brought a small gas grill and used it as hubby prefers gas. The fire pit was great. The house is on a creek leading to the Choptank River….the creek is very wide, and the river is close. We enjoyed visits from a large heron, an eagle and a raccoon hunting in the river….and the rabbits that were out every morning in the yard. Take time to read the books about the history of Trappe that are on end tables around the house. You will see some of the landmarks mentioned if you drive through town…drive slow... and always wave to folks when going down Main Street. They wave back! Visit the Unicorn Book Store and meet the owner! Phone, TV and Internet service are great. The owners are very responsive during the reservation process and are readily accessible if you need assistance during your stay. Leslie recommended fresh caught local fish at Kool Ice in Cambridge and Highland Creamery in Oxford for our daughter’s birthday. Both were awesome! We visited Assateague Island which is an easy drive….left the house at 7:30 and no traffic problems. Since two family members had never seen Ocean City we drove through………NO WAY is that a vacation…….but you could do a day trip if you want to…..but why would you want to? We were so glad to return to Fox Trappe Farmhouse. Thank you to Leslie, Thom and Molly for sharing your lifestyle with us. We hope to return."

  • Wonderful Retreat

    "The house & yard were everything you can ask for. We had 3 adult families with kids & had so much fun playing " old school" games- croquet, bean toss, air hockey,pool, kickball, horse shoes that everyone slept very well. The kayaks & paddle boats were constantly used, along with trying our luck at fishing & crabbing. The house is huge! Lots of room for everyone & the kitchen was well stocked with all the necessary utensils & cooking aids. This was a really relaxing, fun filled vacation."

  • Great location for a big, family birthday celebration

    "We gathered in June 2016 from all over -- CT, NJ, DC and PA at this wonderful estate -- to celebrate a milestone birthday. Everyone was comfortable in their rooms and the house has a warm/loving, family vibe. The second floor porch was perfect for the one night when we had a chance to watch a storm roll in. The property was perfect for everyone's diverse interests -- running/ walking, fishing, boating, and swimming in the pool. We rented the Dann's skiff and their two kayaks which were really fun (worth the extra, nominal cost). The kitchen is not huge, but somehow we all made it work and enjoyed cooking together. We would definitely rent this property again; our ages ranged from 55 to 9 and all said they'd like to return. The caretaker on the property was helpful and available any time we had questions. Truly a fabulous location, gorgeous water views, relaxing and just what we all were hoping for. Lastly, we brought our 36' power boat over from Annapolis and easily got in and out of of the deep water dock."
