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.

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 can't beat the views, water from every window, including the bathroom! Most city folks pull the blind, but I don't; 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 that 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
This is a place with pretty views but my family and I had issues with the amount of bugs in the house - large crickets, flies and mean looking spiders. I had a problem with some other things like the dirty dishes in the cupboards, the moldy dishwasher, the master bed being on the floor without a bed frame, and the house has a strange smell that I couldn't get used to. The shower fluctuates between cold and scalding hot. The man mowing the grass let someone into the house to get her paintings off the wall while we were away one day. Just the fact that he had let someone else in while our things were in there but no one called us or asked if that was ok, that irked me. I think this was a great place at one time but I feel like it is neglected now. It needs holes patched so bugs stay out, needs screen which is no longer on the pictured screened in porch, and needs the smell taken care of. I wouldn't recommend this property if you're picky about comforts. If you aren't bothered by bugs, then you probably won't have a problem staying and relaxing, but I did.
Beautiful restored cottage with water to the front and back, a perfectly relaxing front porch and quiet back deck. Watching the sun rise over the marsh grasses is stunning. The old floors have a gentle uneven slope, and the original rooms are comfortable and well-cared for. The newer back of the house is wide open with big bright windows. Owner and property manager are quick to respond to any questions. Very few cars and trucks passed during a 72 hour stay. This is truly a more peaceful way of life. It was hard to leave!
Bring a good 100 watt lightbulb for reading, since the living room lights are dim.
