Why Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals chose Chesapeake Bay

Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals treats your vacation as an important investment. We are professionals. Managing vacation rentals is all we do! We oversee every facet of the home and this property has complied with and/or exceeded our firm's most stringent amenity guidelines. Nevertheless, things go wrong and even the most diligent preventative care can't prevent the unexpected. Consider what will happen if something goes wrong during your stay? ESVR has an extensive and loyal vendor network and can address most problems swiftly. The house is not your whole vacation. You've selected the perfect property—now what? Do you just want to arrive to a key under the doormat, or have a guest services department that can help you plan your vacation. ESVR views your vacation as an important investment in happiness – we are here for our clients 24/7!

What makes this cottage unique

Whether this is your first time or the 5th, ESVR spends a great deal of time making sure that you not only rent from us, but enjoy all the things the area has to offer! We have an exclusive vendor network for everything from boat rentals delivered to your dock to paddle boards, charters and cruises at our disposal to help you make the most of your vacation. And because we are the largest vacation rental firm in the area, we can offer you discounts on everything from ice cream to golf! We offer value, not the lowest price. When comparing the cost of an ESVR home, be sure you are comparing apples to apples. ESVR includes everything from linens and bath towels, pet fees, cleaning and more so you are not nickeled and dimed after finding that 'great deal'.

Guestbook comments from the manager

simplicity was perfect!!! Clean, well appointed, bright, and very welcoming. Loved the open floor plan. Small dining table perfect for a jigsaw puzzle, my husband finished his!!! Because it was pet friendly, it provided us with the ideallocation to celebrate 30 years of marriage! Will definitely be back and recommend for any small family.

Reviewer Comments:

Wonderful cottage in an idyllic setting. Couldn't be more beautiful or peaceful. Right on the water, half a mile from the main road and surrounded by farms. Great location for a dog. Has everything you need for a really relaxing vacation. We saw eagles, and there is an osprey nest on the dock next store. You can swim right off the property as long as there are no jellyfish. We're coming back.

Reviewer Comments:

ESVR contacts and information are first rate. The cottage was just the right size for the three of us, two humans and a canine. Hard to imagine a better and more tranquil setting. Everything was as promised, clean and orderly. We enjoyed dock sitting, sunrises, and the peace and quiet. If it hadn't been for those pesky little black ants it would have been just about perfect. We'll definitely consider it next trip. Our first trip to Md. Eastern Shore was a very good one.

The most outstanding experience. Can't wait to return!

May I ask what the wooden structure in the water is/was?

Manager responded on 6/4/2014:

So glad you enjoyed your stay! The wooden structure in the water is an old hunting blind.

Car: necessary

Tilghman Island is about 3 miles long and is separated from the mainland by Knapps Narrows. A drawbridge connects the two and is easily accessible. Tilghman is about 11 miles west of St. Michaels, so it is still within an easy day trip reach for the more touristy aspects of MD's Eastern Shore, but for those looking for that true 'away from it all' feeling in an authentic, unspoiled environment, look no further than Tilghman Island. Known for seafood, hospitality and boating and fishing, the island is also home to the only commercial sailing fleet in North America, the Chesapeake Bay Skipjacks. Once over a hundred in number, the nine remaining Skipjacks are moored on Tilghman Island in Dogwood Harbor.
