Charming indeed

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my wife and kids and another couple with their kids. This place is exceedingly charming and comfortable, decorated with character and class. Interesting antiques and pieces throughout, and updated kitchen, bathroom etc. We spent most of our stay near or on the water, enjoyed a feast of crabs -- acquired with the owner's help -- on the dock, and generally relaxed. The water is calm and quiet, and so is the area; a wonderful contrast to more crowded areas on the Chesapeake. We'll certainly be coming back and we can't wait!

A great vacation

  • 5 of 5

A group of us came up to Susan's place for the weekend for a triathlon, and stayed after. Susan's home is beautiful and the attached dock, outdoor shower, fire pit, and grill, were exactly what we wanted.

Susan also went above and beyond as a host, contacting us ahead of time, making sure we had everything we needed, recommending places to visit/eat on the island, and procuring us a bushel of cooked local crab (this was unbelievable). I really recommend staying here.

The Location is Unbelievable

  • 4 of 5

The stunning location of this property provides a lifetime memory and the owner was prompt and easy to work with. I rented the house for overflow of family and friends coming for a birthday party and was pleased with the result. This house is clearly someones home, it is not a "vacation rental". The good is that there is wonderful and quirky art and great furnishings... it is like going to see a good friend. The more uncomfortable part, is a feeling of being is someone else's home that you are working around rather than a whole house rental experience. The lovely pull out in the porch area is not yet suitable as a sleeping area due to the musty smell, but all other areas were great. For the number of people sleeping in the house (we had 10) the 1 plus 1/2 bath was a bit unnerving for our crowd, but we rented a port-a-john so people could enjoy the beach, fireplace, kayaks, and spectacular island without going in and out of the home. Our crowd was a little fussy about not having instructions to access wi-fi, having to share one key on a troublesome lock, and not having coffee on site; but with some foresight, and asking better questions in advance I could have planned for this. Susan was a great hostess that did make her self quickly available at each part of the transaction. We have no hesitation in recommending this house again for a splendid holiday.

We stayed with some friends for a long week-end and loved it. The place is really peaceful and beautiful and Susan was really helpful. We had access to many extras like canoes and bikes which we really appreciated. Taking our breakfast on the pier or looking at the stars from the deck was priceless! We'll be back :)
