Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Chesapeake Bay - Sandy Pines

4 BD, 3BA, (Sleeps 10) with Paddle boards, Kayaks, Canoe, and Sailboat

Sandy Pines, with its own private waterfront, dock, and swimming pool, offers a peaceful retreat within the quiet natural beauty of the Chesapeake Bay region. The very private home, sited on broad navigable Harris Creek, enjoys stunning sunset views across the Chesapeake tributary, and is fully-equipped and furnished for a restful family vacation.

We provide two SUP ATX standup paddle boards, two kayaks, one canoe, and a Sunfish sailboat unlike any other rental in this area!

Sandy Pines features four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. One of the bedrooms and baths is in a separate wing of the house, so that families can offer guests or relatives some privacy. Two families can comfortably share the home with comfort. The home features a screened-in porch, a renovated kitchen, a spacious dining room with water views, a living room, and a stunning high volume Bay room with views across Harris Creek. A piano makes for an added musical treat at the shore!

The home is on 3 acres tucked against a quiet cove, which allows for great kayaking, canoeing, sailing, fishing, and crabbing. A pine grove along the shoreline is a shady retreat with hammocks and furnishings to watch sunsets. The dock, with 2 ft MLW, offers pilings for tying up a small boat.

The shoreline allows for finding sea treasures and setting up a beach chair for reading and enjoying the water on Harris Creek. Your mornings will be filled with the sounds of waterfowl, and you will observe the bounty of Chesapeake wildlife during your stay. Heron, swan, and eagles all visit the area with regularity.

Sandy Pines is less than a two-hours from Washington, D.C. and three hours from Philadelphia and is located in the village of Bozman, five miles from St. Michaels, Maryland. You can walk 5 minutes to the fishing village of Neavitt, which has a playground, park, post office, and deep water boat launch. St. Michaels, Maryland and nearby Oxford, Easton, and Tilghman Island offer great cultural attractions, museums, antiques, artisans to make your stay complete.

About The Owner

We rented and then purchased this beautiful home and cherish it as a place to gather, and to be refreshed and renewed! This continues a tradition for this property. We offer this treasured place for family vacations, and 50% of our families are returning vacationers.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Chesapeake Bay

We loved the quiet peaceful feeling of the property, the natural beauty, and its proximity to town (St Michaels). Our two young children love the pool, outdoor area, and experiencing the creek. It's a great setting for enjoying the water in your favorite way: crabbing, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, etc.

What makes this house unique

A feeling that you have been away from the metropolitan area, that you breathe fresh air, see so many stars at night, and slip out onto the water whenever you choose!

Great vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a perfect vacation getaway for our family. It was just as described and very clean and comfortable. There was plenty of room for all of us to be together yet have our own space. The weather was cold and rainy while we were here, but the view was still beautiful and the house was cozy. The grounds, the pool, the dock and the boats were all so inviting, we would love to come back in warmer weather and take advantage of them! The wireless internet was fine - our teenager did not complain! The extra supplies in the kitchen and pantry were very helpful. Thanks for sharing your beautiful house!

Great weekend away

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend away while at Sandy Pines. The accommodations were perfect and everything was in great condition. We had the opportunity to enjoy the canoe and SUP in between the rain and wind. It really was the perfect space to spread out and relax. We hope to come back when it's warmer and enjoy the pool.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Everyone had a wonderful time. I wished the pool was heated because this spring has been usually cool. The condiments that were available made it extremely convenient to cook meals. Not only would I recommend this property I would also book in the future.

The perfect place for our family of 3 children and 4 adults. We loved boating and playing games.

  • 5 of 5

The site on Broad River is inspiring. The layout of the rooms is perfect. The appliances in the kitchen made meal preparation easy. There were games for all. We even loved the piano.

Excellent Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 adults has a wonderful stay at Sandy Pines over a long weekend. It is close to the places we visited: Tilghman Island, St. Michaels, Royal Oak and Oxford. We had one rainy day, but the screened in back porch was a very relaxing place to be to read or just listen to the rain. The décor was comfortable and homey. We used the well stocked kitchen as we cooked in several times.

We did not crab or fish, but saw crabs from the shore and dock and evidence of fish activity on Harris Creek. We hope to take advantage of the pool on a future visit.

Perfect New Years getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My group was hoping for a quiet, beautiful place and it's just what we found at Shady Pines. Loved the location, the wood stove, and the quiet more remote location. Never far from things we needed but far enough to feel away from it all. A well-appointed home with wonderful and considerate people running it, we had a great time and were already making plans for coming back before we had been there 24 hours. Thank you.
