LOVINGLY RESTORED AUTHENTIC 1920'S WATERMAN'S COTTAGE WITH WIDE BAY VIEWS

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Tilghman Island - Simplicity Cottage

Lovingly restored 1920's authentic waterman's cottage with breathtaking views!

This fantastic 1920's Waterman's cottage has the charm and waterfront location that is hard to come by these days. Restored to give you some up to date comforts, such as new kitchen, added bedroom and renovated bath, this is a great spot to enjoy hours of baywatching, or slip over to Dogwood Harbor and observe one of the last skipjack fleets in the country. Pick up some fresh seafood and have savor a local meal at home with the best seat in the house! A great cottage for those who still appreciate the simple things.

About Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals

Property Manager since 2004. Locally owned and professionally managed vacation brings you value to your vacation investment

Why Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals chose Tilghman Island

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. Nevertheless, 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? 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. ESVR views your vacation as an important investment in happiness – we are here for our clients 24/7!

What makes this cottage 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'.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time at the cottage and may consider it for a longer period during the summer months. The daily rate was a bit high for an extended stay. Very peaceful and relaxing!

Reviewer Comments:
ESVR contacts and information are first rate. The cottage was just the right size for the three of us, two humans and a canine. Hard to imagine a better and more tranquil setting. Everything was as promised, clean and orderly. We enjoyed dock sitting, sunrises, and the peace and quiet. If it hadn't been for those pesky little black ants it would have been just about perfect. We'll definitely consider it next trip. Our first trip to Md. Eastern Shore was a very good one.

The most outstanding experience. Can't wait to return!


May I ask what the wooden structure in the water is/was?

Manager responded on 6/4/2014:
So glad you enjoyed your stay! The wooden structure in the water is an old hunting blind.

This location was beyond our expectations. The photos do not begin to give the full effect of the serenity and privacy the Simplicity Cottage offers. Friendly neighbors, dogs, townspeople - crabmeat at Chesapeake Landing excellent! Would go again in a heartbeat!

Tilghman Island
Car: necessary

Tilghman Island is about 3 miles long and is separated from the mainland by Knapps Narrows. A drawbridge connects the two and is easily accessible. Tilghman is about 11 miles west of St. Michaels, so it is still within an easy day trip reach for the more touristy aspects of MD's Eastern Shore, but for those looking for that true 'away from it all' feeling in an authentic, unspoiled environment, look no further than Tilghman Island. Known for seafood, hospitality and boating and fishing, the island is also home to the only commercial sailing fleet in North America, the Chesapeake Bay Skipjacks. Once over a hundred in number, the nine remaining Skipjacks are moored on Tilghman Island in Dogwood Harbor.
