Enjoy the sunset each night and the night sky with a spectacular vantage point for star gazing. Opportunities to walk, jog, bike, kayak, canoe, bird watch, collect beach glass and more, just steps from your door.
If you get up early enough you have a different set of views to enjoy, as the watermen begin bringing back some of their days catch, and the water glistens as the sun begins to rise. Every window offers a different view, depending on the time of day. Even thunderstorms are a sight to behold, and you can do so safely in the screened in porch out front.
Huge yard that reaches all the way to the BAY, with a huge fire pit, benches and chairs to enjoy the view. You can play badminton, bocci, horseshoes, fly kites, or just sit by the bay, watching the sunset and the cruise ships pass by. During the day, sit and watch the nesting ospreys near the front of the property . Plenty of outdoor space and seating.

Or just buy or catch fresh crabs to cook your way, we provide the crab steamer! We also provide two small crab pots/traps to try your hand at crabbing from our dock.
What Can You Expect At Hoopers Island Bayside Haven?
As we strive for the Bayside Haven to be a truly 'get away from it all' location, we do not provide internet access nor cable TV. We do have plenty of DVDs and local & network TV stations. We have central AC, a ceiling fan, along with window shades (which you WILL need as we get a lot of wonderful sunshine all year long). Eight windows for catching the breezes, which are plentiful.
If you want to stay connected, you must bring your smart phone and/or patronize either the Hoopers Island General Store (formerly Island Pride) or Old Salty's to use their internet. But really...traveling out here encourages you to unplug for a little while, enjoy the scenery, the wildlife and the simplicity...the sunsets are amazing, you may notice others pulling out their chairs around 'sunset' time up and down the bay, as they all admire the wondrous views, the ships going by, and the fabulous birds flying by or swimming in the water . We often have our neighbors over and enjoy it together. Old Salty's is our local (within walking distance) seafood restaurant, where you can meet the locals and the folks that drive from all parts of the Easter Shore to eat here.
We have crisp cool 400 count 100% Cotton linens, organic and/or made in the USA when we can find them. We use steam to clean soft surfaces (pillows, mattresses, cushions, etc.) between guests, to keep down the allergens and just to offer you a comfortable stay. All bedding are encased in bug proof, allergen free materials. We are picky about where we stay, and apply these standards to our vacation rentals as well.
If we are in residence on the first floor, we offer Complimentary Happy Hours for our guests. (we have a separate entrance and separate outdoor deck, to stay out of your way)
You can rent kayaks/canoes or go on a charter fishing boat tour, or just a scenic tour, right on the island. The land is flat, perfect for biking or going for a long walk from bridge to bridge.
Rural area,TRASH REMOVAL is NOT provided, you may choose to bring it with you when you leave or pay the removal fee of $15. Your choice :)
We're still tweaking a few things here and there to make your stay as lovely as possible. Check back for updates!
- pets not allowed
- wheelchair inaccessible
- non smoking only
- Minimum Age Limit for Renters

Debi Richter purchased this studio in 2001
Why Debi Richter chose Cambridge
We bought the Haven several years ago as a place for our family to get away from it all and enjoy the outdoors. We loved watching our children enjoy the water sports, my son working on his sailboat, and combing the 'beach area' for sea glass, biking and walking around the island.
Our children could roam around the island without a care, as it is a very safe and quiet location. The roads are flat, easy to bike or walk on, and the water is perfect for kayaks or canoes, and not so deep you that need to worry.
In our fast paced lives, we all need a place to just 'be' and for us, Hoopers Island Bayside Haven is just that. We hope you will also enjoy the opportunity to relax and enjoy the scenery.
What makes this studio unique
The ability to watch the sunsets every night, and sunrise when we get up early enough. I can not stress this enough, we never tire of the views, and even if I'm cooking, I take a minute to look outside as the sun goes down.
For me personally, there is nothing better than getting up early, making a cup of tea, grabbing my book and sitting on the front porch on one of the rockers and watching the boats come back in. Bliss!
We also really enjoy having friends over at night and building a fire and of course having some drinks while we relax and catch up.
My 'book club' enjoys all of the antique and thrift shopping, and ending the day at Salty's for crab dinners and Hoopers Island Ice Tea. They look forward to the trip every year, the 'club' is growing because of this 'field trip.'
