Harbor Hideaway's in town location is a rare find! HH's in town location is just steps away from everything that St. Michael's has to offer! A charming story and a half cottage that has been completely renovated with amenities that will help ensure a great time on your St. Michael's getaway. Walk or ride the furnished bikes to all the local sights and eateries. It's the perfect rental for a one or two couples, a girls weekend, a small family and those guests just needing a relaxing getaway for a few days. Sip drinks on the front porch, relax on the sofa and watch your favorite show on the flat-screen TV. Relax and take a well deserved nap on the one of the two queen beds with new and comfy mattresses, or for those with energy to burn, head out for a swim at the Bay One Hundred pool that is only a few blocks away. Ava's Pizzeria has OHMYGOODNESS delicious pizza. Or, cook in HH's well-equipped kitchen or on the outdoor grill. Afterwards, end your evening by the firepit making smores or play the beanbag toss game of 'cornhole', or take a walk down to the water that is only 4 houses away. Sm dogs considered with a pet fee / pet deposit.

About Carol Rum

Owner could not be happier as the property manager of Harbor Hideaway! She loves meeting people which this job is a perfect fit for. She has traveled extensively, living for two years in Japan while teaching abroad and three in Italy. Though education was her calling for many years, she has pursued her other artistic callings with each move. She worked in design in her years in NC and with the move to MD, she wanted to follow her heart into the hospitality industry. Taking note of all the things that she enjoyed as she traveled and then incorporating them into her own summer rental has been very rewarding to her, and hopefully to the enjoyment of her guests. Her ultimate goal is to try to give her guests a great getaway that is made easy by the things that she provides. (when she first bought this place, the management company made the guests pay extra for bedding and to have the beds already made up upon your arrival...who wants to do on your getaway?) Since she took over, she put in great mattresses with quality linens that are pressed and on the bed.That type of comfort and pampering brings many repeat guests year after year. Just as important to her as your comfort is the cleaniness of the cottage. When a property is not just a rental but the second home for the owner, which Harbor Hideaway is, you can be assured that you will always get the best of everything. She wants you to enjoy what she enjoys about it, the location, the comfort and the cleanliness, all things that are hugely important in choosing a place to stay.

Carol Rum purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Carol Rum chose Saint Michaels

The town of Saint Michael's has been one of my very favorite getaways from my very first vist back in the 90's. It felt like I was stepping back in time, safe and friendly. I love riding the bikes or walking around town, restaurants are great, shopping is fun, I feel like I'm back in my little hometown!

What makes this cottage unique

Our promise to our guests is that you will always find Harbor Hideaway to be extremely clean and fresh and comfortable. Our guests mention this fact over and over again in their reviews and as an owner I know that is over the top important to me when I look to stay somewhere.

Our guests also love our location, so close to town and also close to the water. When they aren't out exploring the town or their surroundings, they find it in enchanting to sit and relax in the rocking chairs on the front porch. Other visitors enjoying Saint Michael's pass by and their is always sweet banter going between guests about their stays. It just a lovely town and lovely neighborhood that we are fortunate enough to own and share a cottage in. I think you'll love it!

Location

Car: recommended

Talbot County is host to over 10,000 miles of shoreline - and that means more breathtaking views of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.

Many wonderful events come to St. Michaels in the spring and summer months! All season long, there are events at the Chesapeake Maritime Museum, Crab Days in Tilghman, great shops on Talbot St. The warm days and flowers and wildlife have returned and the best place to experience it all is right here in St. Michael's. If golfing is more of your hobby than shopping, checking out Hog's Neck Public Course and HarbourTown Golf Course. Need a massage while on your relaxing weekend, St. Michael's has several to choose from, all within walking distance from your Harbor Hideaway cottage. If you like the simple beauty of the water, you'll find that only four houses away. Enjoy a morning or evening walk to take in all the beauty of this enchanted town that you'll want to come back to time and time again.

Charming and comfortable. Owner does an outstanding job keeping it clean and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

My friend from OK and I have enjoyed girls getaways over the past several years. Harbor Hideaway has been our favorite place to stay. The owner stocks the cottage with thoughtful products, high quality towels and sheets. The cottage is in easy walking distance to downtown St. Michaels. Delightful time!!

Really enjoyed our long weekend here. Beautiful cottage close to town and a short walk to a bunch of restaurants and bars. Cottage well equipped and perfect for the two of us. The cottage was comfortable and yet it is also was in keeping with the area. You felt like you were in your weekend home. Plan on coming back

What a great place to stay in St. Michaels!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house to visit. Location is ideal. Close enough to everything (within walking distance) though peaceful and quiet. The accommodations inside are perfect (and nicer than most VRBO's). The owner was excellent at communicating before our arrival and was kind enough to be sure there was firewood and charcoal/gas for the grill. Needless to say, we highly recommend and look forward to visiting again.

Owner's Response: John and guests, This owner never takes her reviews for granted because they have the ability to weaken or strengthen our overall appeal to guests that are considering between many places.......so, first and foremost, I want to thank you for the wonderful gift of the time that you took to even write a review! It remains so important to Harbor Hideaway to have current reviews. Last, but surely not least, I want to tell you that it brings me great joy when I read that other guests enjoy Saint Michael's and our cottage (Harbor Hideaway) almost as much as I do! Between myself and our cleaner, we try very hard to think of everything that will make it a memorable getaway. We will look forward to having you visit again soon! Carol
