Why Kathy Bogan, VIP Vacation Rentals chose Royal Oak
Bonate' is on a private point of land with a creek on one side, and the beautiful, wide open, Tred Avon River on the other. It is convenient to arrive by boat, or by land. It is logistically located between the most popular towns on the eastern shore; St. Michaels, Easton, and Oxford. Lots of water to explore, crabbing, fishing, or just relax by the pool and watch the Osprey teach the babies how to fly.

We just spent last week at Bonate’ and absolutely loved it! It was the perfect place for our annual Sorority Sister Reunion. There were 10 of us young at heart but old enough to know better women. This home has 4 bedrooms plus an attached apartment that very comfortably slept the 10 of us. An awesome bonus is that each bedroom has its own bathroom so getting ready was never a problem and taking showers at the same time wasn’t an issue either. There was hot water enough for everyone. The weather was brutally hot but we barely noticed it at the house. The pool was sparkling clean and cool, the screened porch has 2 big fans and lots of lovely furniture, we spent the majority of our days in the pool or on the porch. There is water on 3 sides of the property so there was a nice breeze that would come through every day. The home itself is beautiful and it has a large variety of different collectibles throughout so it was so fun discovering new things every day. She has 8 original carousel animals throughout the large house that are just magical! A huge menagerie of Duck, Geese and Loon decoys, plus many other collections. We absolutely loved our vacation here, the kitchen has everything you need, the bathrooms, the comfortable beds, the porch, the kayaks, the fantastic pool, the water views, just everything. The location was ideal also, the Oxford Ferry was right at the end of the street, about a 1 minute drive. Easton or St Michael’s are a 15 minute drive. We all had dinner at The Robert Morris Inn one night and it was delightful and delicious. Everyone agreed that we can highly recommend staying at this property. It’s the perfect place for a group like ours. Thank you Penny and Kathy for this lovely property we were lucky enough to experience!❤️
Wonderful property - peaceful and charming.
This was a wonderful place for a relaxing vacation - peaceful, charming and the view is tremendous. The screened in porch was wonderful for our family. We were very comfortable.
I'm sorry, I thought I had responded to your review from last summer. I want you to know how much we appreciate your kind words. We also thank you very much for returning to Bonate' this summer. You have been wonderful guests, and we look forward to having you again.
Great Adult Vacation
The décor in the house is not kid friendly. The house is right on the water so bringing a boat was very easy and convenient. We did catch crabs and striper right off the dock. The ferry to Oxford is in walkable distance but not a lot to do there. I recommend driving to St. Michaels, it is not far and there are plenty of shops and eateries. The views from the house were amazing. Some issues we had were a lot of the outlets in the house and on the patio did not work. The master bedroom only has 3 walls so if you are in the kitchen you can look up and see someone on the balcony in the master bedroom. Fyi the dimmer switch for the dining room light is not round like the others, it is located on the kitchen wall and it is on the side of a regular flip switch. It took us awhile to find it. Overall we had a wonderful vacation but not sure if we would rent this house again.
We are confused by this traveler's comments since she mentions that they had a wonderful vacation. Possibly one of the best water views in Talbot County, the owner is meticulous about attending to her guests' needs. She has taken care of the outlets and, yes, she has some collectibles that might be reached by a toddler, but not a problem with older children. This guest said she will be retracting this review due to its ambiguous content.
P.S. Oxford is a lovely town with a New England feel. You can take your car, or bike on the ferry (5 min. away) and bike ride to tennis courts, great restaurants, and just explore this beautiful town that is surrounded by water. VERY quaint.
'Bonate' is a private 4.60 acre property located on a point of land affording panoramic views of the Tred Avon and Choptank rivers. It is accessible by deep water, air, and car. The location is central with access to Easton, the hub of our area, and the beautiful villages of St Michaels, and Oxford. There is also outlet shopping en-route and lots of antique shops, and golf courses in the area. All of this is only an hour and fifteen minutes from BWI airport. Easton Airport is also only 20 minutes from the house if you'd like to arrive by air, take a commute to a larger airport, or just take an aerial view of our beautiful estates and waterways.
