What a wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent several days here in January and was it ever spectacular! The house was very cozy and very well equipped with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. It is evident that the owner spent a lot of time (and money!) bringing this old cottage back to its former glory including wonderful decorating and furnishings. The beds were very comfortable and main the bathroom perfect for our group. There are water views on opposite sides of the property as it is located on a point and walking the neighborhood was beautiful and very relaxing. Not knowing the area when we booked, we "used the force" and ended up in what we all agreed was the best spot in spite of all of our explorations. Graul's Market on the way into town has great gourmet supplies as did the Village Shoppe and a stop in to the Blue Crab Coffee company for the obvious as well as treats (I know I smelled curry!) and Lyon Distillery (GREAT rum!) are well worth it. We enjoyed having the east shore to ourselves in this off-season but plan to return in the summer!

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Shipwright Cottage is a great spot for a weekend retreat. Quiet, charming, cozy, and a comfortable spot to kick your feet up and (temporarily) call home. Melissa is tremendous to work with, too!

Quiet Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for a quiet peaceful retreat. We felt like we were the only people in the neighborhood. The home is clean with modern upgrades. The location has great views of the local waterways. Perfect for watching sunrise and sunset. Great place overall. We will be renting here again the future.

CozySleepyPerfect Wittman

  • 4 of 5

Nested on the shore of Cummings Creek on a spit of land with water on both sides lies the Shipwrights Cottage, a fitting name as a boat builder’s shed of indeterminate age sits next door. The sleepy enclave of Wittman is just 8 miles from the restaurants and shopping in Saint Michael’s and about the same from Tilghman Island. The property has been thoughtfully renovated with appropriate cottage décor, modern appliances and amenities such as flat screen TV’s, remote controlled fireplace and reliable Wi-Fi. An upstairs bathroom enjoyed a floor to ceiling renovation and a convenient powder room is tucked under the staircase. Two bedrooms afford occupancy for (4) and a pull out couch can handle another person. The Wittman Wharf boat launch at the end of Hewit Road is less than a mile away if you're a boater or looking for some deeper water to swim a dog.

For a late fall visit, the Adirondack chairs and kayaks were not used but present. The house has water views from two sides, a two car parking pad and a screen porch that begs a crab feast in warmer months. We were happy to find such a well-curated property that accepts dogs. The splashing of a Labrador in the chilled fall water with the bleeting of local geese overhead, framed by evergreen and maples with a nip in the air was almost too perfect. Good houses come with good owners!

Cozy, tidy and convenient, the Shipwright’s Cottage in emblematic of the “sleepy shore” found beyond Easton and is represented accurately on the HomeAway platform and is recommendable to all.

Wonderful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome stay! The cottage is decorated in an adorable fashion and is impeccably clean. Looking at the water from the table while eating breakfast was a relaxing experience. The screened in porch enabled us to have a nice glass of wine in the evening. The cottage is conveniently located within a short ten minute drive to St Michaels. Melissa included directions to area attractions and suggestions for activities. We will definitely be returning for another visit!

My friends and I met in St Michaels for a mini vacation. We could not have picked a better place to stay for the occassion. The cottage was just so adorable, clean and in the perfect location. We will definitely go back!
