  • Home Away from Home at Baer Necessities

    "This was our first time staying at the lovely home. It was in a perfect location and had all the amenities one would want! I appreciated all the little details that were thought of to make sure that we had everything we needed. The kitchen was my favorite and if I had more time there I would have taken advantage of all the cooking tools! However, we did use the pool, pink pong table and comfy chairs to read good books! The only thing that was a challenge (and could have been us), was access to internet. Both my husband and I could not get into it but was able to leverage our hotspots. But, it truly helped to 'unplug' on vacation:) Looking forward to future stays!!!"

  • Wow! We all fit!

    "When my extended family started looking for a place where we could all be together for an extended visit, the options were few and far between. We like to plan a group vacation every three years or so... but our group keeps expanding. We have three more little characters added to the role call since the last vacation, and during our week at Ransome's Chesapeake Retreat, we heard news of a new arrival coming by the end of this year! We were particularly excited to have a separate bedroom for all our families while still being able to use the Main House kitchen to feed everyone. Days were mostly spent lounging on the screened in porch in the shade enjoying the breeze with a jigsaw puzzle overlooking and talking with anyone who was floating in the pool. But, we are also an active bunch! We rented kayaks and had a rotating schedule of boaters, one of the teenagers hosted a tennis clinic for the younger kids on the tennis court (maybe not a regulation court, but it did the trick), and we enjoyed the bean bag game provided in the game shed. We even caught a few crabs in the traps at the dock. The nearest town of Cambridge is a bit of a hike (30 mins?), but we found ourselves there almost daily for groceries, or other odds and ends. We were able to find very efficient and responsive medical care when the baby spiked a fever one night. We also traveled to the bird sanctuary trail for a bike ride and over to Hoopers Island for dinner at Old Salty's on our last night together. Prior to our rental week, the Ransomes were simply a phone call away to answer any question a member of the family had. They gave us a great recommendation for a chartered fishing tour. Once we arrived, they were equally attentive to meet our every need. When the wifi needed to be reset, they helped right away. Thanks, Marie and Percy for all your help!"

  • Great property

    "I can't say enough about Brian's property! This happened to be our most relaxing vacation since have kids. We have 3 boys and this spot was perfect. So much privacy! The boys loved swimming in the pool, fishing, crabbing, taking the kayaks out for a ride... We normally go to the jersey shore but decided to try something different and this was a refreshing change for us! We were not disappointed! I would highly recommend!"

  • Lovely family getaway

    "We had a great time. The minute we walked in we were struck by all of the little touches showing how our hostess really went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The house is very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for family time. And Laura went out of her way to help us enjoy the beauty of Hoopers Island. We loved the wildlife refuge (so many beautiful birds), picking up sea glass along the edge of the water, roasting marshmallows, and the kids had a great time fishing. The house had everything we needed for fishing & crabbing. We also learned a lot about Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad. And, of course, we ate a lot of crab. Hooper's Island is a great place to get away from it all. It is so peaceful & idyllic. We'll never forget it."
