Overview

About the property

Four Bedrooms, Comfortable, Spectacular Views, Boating, Swimming and family fun

There are two houses on the property. In June of 2015 we completed a complete and total re-build of the carriage house and are back up and running on VRBO. Since retiring in 2014, Clarissa and I are living full time in the house and you may see us from time to time, but the carriage house 'cottage' has been designed to be a get-away that is comfortable, elegant, private, cozy and memory making. It is perfect for families, couples, and or friends just wanting to spend some time together. It is far enough away from civilization to enjoy the water, sky, trees and wildlife, without being entirely out of touch. You are in short driving distance to Cambridge, Easton, St. Michaels, and Salisbury for lots of day-trip entertainment. For nature lovers, we are near the Blackwater Refuge for kayaks or canoes. For hunters, this is an area sought after by those interested in ducks, geese, deer, turkey and others. For golfers, there are two nearby golf courses and plenty of varied and highly-rated local restaurants.

If you’d rather just stay on the property in a quiet, secluded natural arena, you can enjoy boating, kayaking, fishing, crabbing (right from the pier), swimming, walking, biking, sitting with your favorite folks, or holding down the hammock with a good book. In cool or rainy weather, there are games, books, internet and TV. The house is designed for entertaining, with a brand new kitchen equipped with plenty of cooking paraphernalia, and the living space is conducive to easy conversation and lots of comfortable seating.

There are two different areas for dining, inside or under the pergola, all in view of the Brooks Creek/Choptank vista. It is perfect for a family to get re-acquainted or a romantic getaway. We provide the ambiance, you provide the fun!

Living room with 42' flat screen TV, dining room, bathroom and kitchen, two with queen beds and a third with a full size bed, and a loft with two twin sized beds. separate 15 x 12 pergola with slate flooring, adirondacks, fireplace and dining seating for four. The pier can handle motorboats, canoes, or rowboats. Two kayaks are available. Linens and paper ware provided along with all kitchen equipment and dining ware.

About Rob Neumer

We bought this Cambridge property as a family getaway from our full-time jobs in Harford County. Our grown children travel here from various Maryland locations with their friends to do loads of relaxing, kayaking, swimming, jet skiing, and many kinds of games and outdoor fun.

Rob Neumer purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Rob Neumer chose Chesapeake Bay

The main purpose of this beautiful location is for peace and quiet, beautiful vistas, water, trees and sky. It was discovered with the help of locals who knew of its privacy and scenic view.

What makes this cottage unique

Reading a book under the pergola with a soft breeze blowing in from Brooks Creek, napping in the hammock, or enjoying a fire after sunset with friends makes this a restful, rejuvenating place.

Fun family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property is AMAZING. It's beautiful, quiet and the water views (and sunsets!) are breath taking. The owners (Rob & Clarissa) who live on the property are very accommodating. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be back!

waterfront perfection

  • 5 of 5

Rob and Clarissa's place is fantastic. Rob was very responsive and incredibly welcoming, offering a tour of the property upon arrival. With a group of 8 adults, we were comfortable in the three bedroom plus loft space. The draw of this location is not only stunning views from the two docks, a hammock, lawn chairs, and porch but all the activities available on the property: we kayaked, grilled, swam, played ping pong, rode bikes, and walked the woods. The pergola was perfect for a cookout, and the hammock for afternoon naps and spotting eagles. Best of all, our city dog got to spend the weekend off-leash roaming the property. Without a doubt, a perfect spot to spend a relaxing and fun weekend.

Waterfront Treasure

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two night stay at Rob and Clarissa's. My husband, friends, and I were looking for a weekend escape from the city and this rental was perfect for just that. The carriage house is clean, comfortable, and cozy. The views of the river were breathtaking, and a clear, warm morning made for a perfect kayak ride. Our toddler loved exploring the expansive yard and had fun with the toys that were available. We visited several spots in the region including the Blackwater Refuge and the Harriet Tubman visitor's center, both of which were wonderful, but the best eagle sighting of the weekend was from the dock at the Rob and Clarissa's!

Peace by the Chesapeake Bay

  • 5 of 5

From gentle breezes and seabirds to glass-like water, our stay was wonderful in every way. As a quiet get-away, and yet close enough to town for an excursion, or to the ocean side, this locale is hard to beat.
