BEST CHESAPEAKE BAY SUNRISE & SUNSETS! WATER VIEWS FROM EVERY ROOM IN THE HOUSE

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Frenchtown-Rumbly - Chesapeake Bay Sunsets

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Located in Frenchtown MD, 30 min south of Salisbury MD on Chesapeake Bay's Eastern Shore. This is a private home on an island in the middle of ten thousand acres of salt marsh and near a national wildlife management area. Views from the bedroom enjoy waterfront sunrises, water views from the living room & dining area, and the front porch enjoys waterfront sunsets. Perfect for a very quiet getaway. The house is a simple charming watermans home that has been renovated to be comfy & relaxing. There is a full kitchen & gas grill outside if you want to cook your own meals, or you can take advantage of some of the local restuarants. Bring bikes, kyaks, canoes, etc and soak up mother nature. Bring your own fishing rods and catch crabs off the bridge coming into town. We are just 2 Miles from a marina with a boat ramp where you can launch your boat or kyak, and then when you get back to shore enjoy cracking crabs or having a crab cake at the Hide-A-Way bar & grill. 3 Miles from the house is the Fairmount Wildlife Managment Area where there are huge impoundments that hold fresh water to attract all kinds of wildlife and waterfowl. Ride your bikes or walk the trail and see Bald Eagles, Great Blue Heron, and all kinds of waterfowl. You'll be surprized to find you are the only people there. 10 miles from the house is Great Hope Golf Course, open to the public, and they have a restaurant, too. 20 miles away is Crisfield, the birthplace of Lem & Steve Ward, the famous Ward Bros decoy carvers, & more restaurants. From Crisfield you can pick up a ferry to Smith Island or go to Tangier Island and hear the locals talk - they still have an Elizabethan accent! Crisfield also has regular and flyfishing guides if you would like catch your own dinner. Rockfish are great! 30 miles away is Pocomoke, home to the Discovery Center where reptiles, Native American displays & maritime history all collide to offer all interests something to do. 45 minutes away go through Chincoteauge to get to Assateague National Seashore and see the wild ponies, and from there hit the beach and listen to the Atlantic Ocean as the waves roll in. Parking is never a problem anywhere, except the beach, plan to go early or late and beat the crowd if its July or August. Life here is easy, the way it should be. As you can tell, I love my neighborhood! - Iris

The reason my house is for rent in the summer is because I became a ship's captain in 2001 when I inherited my grandfather's yacht the Selina II. I operate her as a charter boat in St Michaels MD about a two hour drive away, too far to commute, so I stay there during the sailing season.

Iris Clarke purchased this cottage in 1981

I grew up the water on Shelter Island NY. When I got to be an adult I wanted to continue to live on the water, but property values there we prohibitive, so I move to MD where I could afford a waterfront home. Then I feel in love with the Eastern Shore. They call this place the 'Land of Pleasant Living', and it is. Everyone is very friendly and the community is tight, a bit like Mayberry in the old Andy Griffith TV show.

I grew up on an Island and Frenchtown is on an Island. You will go over three bridges to get to the house, so it has an island culture, just like where I grew up. And there is only one way on and off, so there is very little traffic, nice and quiet, the way I like it. Sleepy little town. Plus you cant beat the views, water from every window, including the bathroom! Most city folks pull the blind, but I dont, there's only birds to look in and see you, and I like looking out to see them. I love looking at the Great Blue Herons who sit on the pilings out back. Sometimes we get White Herons, quite a thrill to see. I love all the wildlife in the area, the proximity to the Wildlife refuges where I like to take a long walk everyday, the beautiful views, easy bike riding, and great neighbors. Many of the people who live in Frenchtown are still working watermen who bring back the crabs they catch and keep them in the floats at the crab houses out front. So wonderful to live in a place time forgot

Bring bikes, kyaks, canoes, etc and soak up mother nature. This quaint Eastern Shore town is on an island looking over Tangier Sound on the Chesapeake Bay. Its a quiet place with only 17 houses and no commercial stores, but there is plenty to do in the area. Bicycling is easy on these flat back country roads, so bring one along for everybody. 2 miles away in Rumbley is a Marina with a restaurant - you can crack crabs or have a delicious crab cake right after you get back from launching your boat or kyak from the public boat ramp. 3 miles away is the Fairmount Wildlife Management Area where you will see Bald Eagles, Great Blue Heron, waterfowl of all kinds. Walk or bike the impoundments, you be amazed you are the only people there. 10 Miles away is Great Hope Golf Course, open to the public. 20 miles away is Crisfield where you can tour the home of Lem & Steve Ward, the famous decoy carving brothers.
