About the property

3Br 3Ba, 2000 sq.ft. located ON the Chesapeake Bay! Drive or sail-in friendly!

Thank you for considering our place for your vacation! We lived on the Eastern Shore for almost a decade before moving our little family to the south of France. Tilghman was our "beach house", a place where we went for quality family time, great sunsets and local characgters. The house is a 2 storied, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom house located directly on the Chesapeake Bay. There are screened/glassed-in porches that wrap around the first floor and private balconies off of the master bedroom and one of the guest rooms. The house faces west, providing the most amazing sunset views anywhere on the Eastern Shore!

The house is adjacent to the Tilghman Island Marina so you are welcome to come by boat or car to enjoy island living. The house comes with everything you need to make your vacation stay feel like home away from home: free wi-fi, luxury bedding, towels, board games, movies and cable tv channels. All you need to bring are your clothes and a sense of adventure.

About Sparrow Rogers

We are on a family sabbatical in beautiful Montpellier, France so we wanted to share our beautiful island home in Tilghman Island, MD with you. We packed up the whole family (2 teenagers, 3 cocker spaniels and us) to dive into a foreign culture so that we could all learn and grow together as a family.

We will miss the magnificent sunsets and abundant wildlife in Tilghman while we are away but we hope you will enjoy it for us!

Sparrow Rogers purchased this house in 2017

Why Sparrow Rogers chose Tilghman Island

The house has approximately 2000 sq feet of living space, not including the covered wraparound porch, and there are wide water views (with direct views of the sunsets) from almost anywhere in the house. The house is very nice but not so fancy that you can't kick back with your friends, family and four legged companions (if you have one).

There are 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, washer/dryer, equipped kitchen and more. Plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy all the benefits of the Bay.

What makes this house unique

Our neighborhood is co-located with the Tilghman Island Marina so you can come by boat or car. While you are visiting, you can rent jet-skis, kayaks etc without ever getting in your car. Historic St. Michaels is only 15 minutes away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is charming with fantastic views! We loved the enclosed porch with a fireplace! Perfect for relaxing and watching the water. The hosts provided everything you could possibly need and more. Great little touches everywhere, from chocolates and snacks to extra toothbrushes/toothpaste. Overall, a great getaway.

The property and house were breathtaking. It felt like home in every sense. We wanted for nothing.

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as pictured. Stunning inside and out. Everything was broken in and felt like a cozy home. We felt relaxed and taken care of even though we were on our own. The owners made sure to anticipate every need. The theme carried throughout was such a sweet touch. Not only was the house extremely dog friendly but so was the nearby town of St. Michael's!! This was found by accident and it was the best decision we made.

A peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

There were 5 of us at the house ages 20-54 yrs. We all found the house a much needed peaceful retreat away from hectic daily lives. We all explored the island and surrounding towns. Loved Oxford and highly recommend a visit. Be sure to get the Highland Ice Cream. The people in St. Michael’s are so kind and friendly. Check out the General Store just a short walk from the house. Handy for necessities and great sandwiches! Every night we made a point to be in an area of the island to watch the sun set. We were blessed with sunny skies all week. Only a small rain shower on Wed night right as the sun set which made for fabulous pictures of the sunset as the clouds rolled in. This is not a house for people who want to be entertained. This is a home to retreat away from the daily grind. To read, take a nap, cook luscious meals and just enjoy each other’s company. There is WiFi, but limited TV/cable. Plenty of DVD’s already at the house. Jane is the property manager and she is responsive to questions and concerns. She will do all she can to help you have a lovely vacation. Highly recommend staying.

Great spot on the water!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious house with great 1st and 2nd floor wrap around porches. 1st floor was enclosed with sliding doors which was perfect for the rainy weather we had all weekend. Large open living/dining/kitchen area which was perfect for large group. House had all amenities needed for a weekend getaway. Owners very responsive to questions. Only negative would be that some of the furniture should be replaced but it was a great spot for a get away on tilghman! Would return for sure!
