About the property

Bonfield Manor is located at the entrance of Oxford, a half mile walk or bike ride to restaurants,shops and the Riverview Ave beach. The waterfront property offers a 12 acre park like setting, fabulous views and access to Boone Creek and the Choptank at its confluence into the Chesapeake Bay. Bonfield Manor and its plantation buildings were established in 1771-73. The original Georgian manor burnt down in 1927 and was replaced by an elegant lodge built on the original mound (and colonial basement kitchen). With two master bedroom suites on the ground floor, two queen size bedrooms and 2 bedrooms with 2 twin beds each on the second floor Bonfield Manor can accommodate 8-12 people. The 12 acre property with its shaded outdoor patio, swimming pool, large dock and extensive grounds provides both privacy, time to relax and an extensive playground for young and old. Fishing, crabbing, canoeing and swimming are at your finger tips as are games, TV, WI-Fi, piano and books for in-door entertainment. Oxford is at your footsteps, St Michaels a ferry trip away and Easton a 15 minutes drive.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We have now been going to Bonfield Manor for 4 years. We love it and plan to keep coming back. The property is ideal - right on the water with a great dock and canoes and kayacks to use on the still and extensive waterways. Bikes a plenty to use to ride into town and all around the beautiful back roads. The house is older but wonderful - great character, clean, well cared for and well appointed. The smallest of requests or questions are quickly answered by the groundskeeper. We were not missing a thing and always have a wonderful carefree stay. I highly recommend this place (but please don't take our time!!)

Great Stay. Beautiful family vacation place.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Bonfield Manor. Everything was just as advertised, the care-taker was attentive. We enjoyed canoeing/kayaking, biking, fishing, crabbing, swimming in the pool, and spending time out the big yard. Would definitely stay again.

Oxford founded in 1694 is located at the mouth of the Tred Avon River as one of Maryland's oldest town and important shipping center during Colonial Days. Today, it is a picturesque town that Yachting Magazine called 'one of the world's best waterfront towns'. Visitors enjoy the historic Robert Morris Inn, the Bellevue Ferry to St Michaels, attractive restaurants, several bustling marinas, and an active yacht club and museum. Whether walking or taking a bike ride, the well-kept houses and gardens along tree-lined streets offer a wonderful backdrop for a relaxing week-end or vacation. The historical towns of St Michaels and Easton are just 15 minutes away by car and offer further attractions and entertainment.
