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.

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.

Beautiful home in the woods on the water in an historic area near nature reserve. Great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful modern three bedroom home with additional full sleeping loft, modern well-stocked kitchen, beautiful views of the water. Kayaks and bicycles available for use. The home is about 15 miles from Cambridge Maryland, close to a wonderful nature reserve, and the Harriet Tubman historical center. Bring all groceries with you as shopping is very limited close by. There is only one bathroom in the unit, although there is another half bath in the garage but one would have to leave the unit and go downstairs to access the half bath. The owners are wonderful people who are fun to talk with and provide expert suggestions for things to do, restaurants, and other local history and activities. A wonderful getaway.

Relaxing and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Rob and Clarissa's carriage house. Rob was wonderful in making sure we had what we needed before our stay. We enjoyed the space and the lovely view. Our kids loved the toys and our pups loved the water and yard. We can't wait to come back!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend. Our family and friends stayed at the house for Ironman Maryland and it was the perfect set up for us and the kids. Our kids enjoyed kayaking in the calm water, playing on the swing, and watching bald eagles. Unfortunately, we had a rainy weekend, but there is a great area for building a fire overlooking the water. The kids (ages 13,11,10) loved the loft as it was surprisingly large, and there were plenty of games for them to play. The kitchen was stocked. Beds were very comfortable and bathroom was large enough to accommodate our group, with an extra bathroom downstairs if needed.

Rob and Clarissa were so nice, our kids couldn't stop talking about how nice of people they were! They went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
