Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in St. Michaels - Captains Cove

This home has it all! Only a half mile to historic district of St. Michaels, pool, poolhouse, game barn, hot tub and deep water dock, plus much more. A fabulous family compoud you'll want to return to for years to come.

Located on the outskirts of the town proper of St. Michaels, this fantastic family vacation compound provides everything you need for a true Eastern Shore getaway. This lovingly restored farmhouse has a brand new gourmet kitchen, 5 bedrooms, cozy den with fireplace and a screened porch with gas fireplace to warm you on those breezy summer or early fall mornings. There is plenty of room for everyone to spread out, play games in the casual dining room or enjoy coffee and plan the day overlooking the formal garden. Enjoy the new gazebo, a perfect backdrop for capturing some treasured family photos!

The grounds are lush with mature landscaping, plenty of privacy, centuries old trees for shade on those hot summer afternoons, and room to roam for the little ones.

The newly restored barn supplies endless opportunities for your kids or kids at heart--game tables, air hockey and foosball. Work off the crab cakes and ice cream with the Vectra gym and rowing equipment!

The pool is flanked with a poolhouse, complete with changing area and two full baths for showering after a swim or a day on the water, and kitchenette for your favorite beverages. The hot tub is open seasonally for your enjoyment as well.

The deep water slip has easy access to the Miles River and St. Michaels harbor, and kayaks are included with this property to explore the smaller creeks and nature watch on a peaceful morning. Like a good Captain, the owners have taken meticulous care to ensure your enjoyment of this home--previous guests will appreciate the continual upgrades including new pool furniture, fully redone steps in the barn, and other improvements. This home offers something for everyone!

Please note hot tub has been winterized and is not open Dec-April.

About Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals

Property Manager since 2004. Locally owned and professionally managed we bring the value to your vacation investment!

Why Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals chose St. Michaels

Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals treats your vacation as an important investment. We are professionals. Managing vacation rentals is all we do! We oversee every facet of the home and this property has complied with and/or exceeded our firm's most stringent amenity guidelines.

Things go wrong and even the most diligent preventative care can't prevent the unexpected. Consider what will happen if something goes wrong during your stay? Will the firm be able to move you to another home? If renting by owner, do they have a backup plan? ESVR has an extensive and loyal vendor network and can address most problems swiftly. The house is not your whole vacation. You've selected the perfect property—now what? Do you just want to arrive to a key under the doormat, or have a guest services department that can help you plan your vacation.

What makes this house unique

Whether this is your first time or the 5th, ESVR spends a great deal of time making sure that you not only rent from us, but enjoy all the things the area has to offer! We have an exclusive vendor network for everything from boat rentals delivered to your dock to paddle boards, charters and cruises at our disposal to help you make the most of your vacation. And because we are the largest vacation rental firm in the area, we can offer you discounts on everything from ice cream to golf! We offer value, not the lowest price. When comparing the cost of an ESVR home, be sure you are comparing apples to apples. ESVR includes everything from linens and bath towels, pet fees, cleaning and more so you are not nickeled and dimed after finding that 'great deal'.

Reviewer Comments:
We again enjoyed our family week get together. The property was everything we expected. Our four grandchildren enjoyed the barn and the pool. The only thing we found that we would want in a future rental would have been another bathroom. The pool house contained two full bathrooms , but the house contained only one full bathroom on each floor. Location was great.

Reviewer Comments:
We spent five glorious days at Captains Cove for our daughter's wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum on October 13th. We had a great time fishing from the pier, taking in the lovely setting from the Adirondack chairs, and relaxing on the back porch. This house is so welcoming, and we felt right at home. We especially enjoyed working out and playing air hockey in the barn game room. We highly recommend, and can hardly wait to return to Captains Cove-a great family gathering place.

Manager responded on 10/11/2013:
Kathy, thanks for the review. Alot of customers don't realize that the historic section of St. Michaels is not zoned for short term vacation rentals which makes Captains Cove even more special since it is right outside of the historic district, making it available to the public for vacation rentals and still close enough to town for guest convenience.

Wonderful relaxing experience for us and our extended family while we attended our sons wedding in St Michaels. We could not wish for anything better for our group aged from 8 to 70 years. We spent 10 days there and felt we could have stayed longer time permitting

During the War of 1812, St. Michaels gained its name as 'the town that fooled the British'. The residents of St. Michaels, having been forewarned that British barges were positioned on the waters to attack with cannon fire, hoisted lanterns into the trees above the city. This first successful 'blackout' fooled the British into overshooting the town's houses and shipyards. Only one house, forever since known as Cannonball House, was struck.

The industry was largely concentrated around shipbuilding and seafood packing, and there are several museums and cultural centers that nod to this heritage. However, today St. Michaels enjoys primarily a healthy tourism industry as guests come from far and near to enjoy all the wonderful things this charming town has to offer. Many will also recognize St. Michaels as the backdrop of several popular movies, including 'The Wedding Crashers'.
