  • Best vacation EVER!!!!

    "I can honestly say that this was the best, most relaxing vacation that we have ever had! My husband and his parents grew up in Maryland. We were looking for a quiet, relaxing place to vacation with his parents. This was it. There was plenty of space to accommodate our two kids and his parents. The girls slept upstairs on the daybeds in the game room. There was bedding provided for the daybeds. There was an outside bathroom and shower that was connected to the master bathroom. This was awesome to have when spending time in the pool. It kept water from being tracked through the house. The girls also showered in that bathroom after swimming. The screened in porch with a hot tub overlooking the bay was outstanding! The kitchen was fully equipped and even had some food items in the fridge and spices in the cabinet. There were crab pots that we put off the dock. We caught 10 very large crabs. The kitchen had a crab pot for cooking the crabs and all utensils needed for cooking and eating the crabs. There was also a grill and fire pit. The dock was gorgeous and perfect for sitting and relaxing, as well as fishing. The guys lived on the dock fishing and crabbing to their hearts' content. There were kayaks that the guys used on the bay. The pool was the cleanest pool I have ever seen. There was a diving board and lots of floats and pool noodles. The kids loved it! Probably the best part of this charming place was all the care and attention that Roger had taken to little details. There was a vase of fresh cut flowers with a handwritten card on the counter when we got there. There was a bottle of chilled wine in the fridge. The chalkboard had a welcome message on it. There were games, music, and movies. Roger had even put up the NC flag (our state flag) along with the Maryland state flag and US flag in honor of our stay. There were beach towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap, dishwasher detergent, laundry soap, coffee filters, lighters, flashlights, fishing poles, bikes, etc provided. We didn't need anything besides our clothes and some food. Roger was so friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed talking with him throughout our stay. There was even a mini fridge outside that was stocked with water and beer. This stay was perfect and relaxing. We saw some of the most gorgeous sunsets that we have ever seen. Thanks so much, Roger, for being such an impeccable and gracious host. Looking forward to next year because we will be coming back!!!!"

  • Great Week!

    "We had a wonderful time! Scott, the owner, was quick to respond to any and all questions before and during our stay. Home was exactly as pictured. The weather was extremely hot so fishing wasn't too good - but the home was well air conditioned and kept us cool without any problems! Quiet, plenty of space, well stocked kitchen and assorted towels. We did go into the town of Cambridge on Monday and found many things closed (oh well, back to the pool). If our goal wasn't to do a different state each year we would definitely go back there again!"

    "Our family stayed the week of the fourth of July-we had a wonderful time, our grandchildren were kept busy swimming and fishing off the dock.The view of the river was breathtaking and the home was very clean.The owner was very friendly and helpful. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing time to spend with your family-this is a good pick."

  • 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."
