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!

Very Pleased!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week for our 30th wedding anniversary. We always talked about coming to the area and we are glad that we finally did. The house was perfect for us. We enjoyed everything about it. The listing was accurate as far as layout and amenities. There are neighbors, but not a development type of neighborhood and it was quiet. It was pretty neat to have water around us. We enjoyed the diversity of the area. We used the charcoal grill for three nights and we ate out the rest of the week.We brought our own bikes, but bikes are provided. We also used the kayaks once. Melissa was very thorough and helpful with the details of the house, and things to do. Very well done!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The only things I can say that were awkward was that there was only a queen in the master area. But as we are older travelers sans kids i was happy to sleep in a twin and give the queen to my husband. The place is so comfortable and adorable. Great kitchen! It is perfect for a couple touring or a young family with small children. Secondly, the property is not directly on the water. However, you see the water from both the front and back of the cottage. A view not to be matched with the price and amenities! The kayaks need to be put in a bit down the road, but only about 50 yards or so. The owners are super to work with! Thanks so much Melissa for allowing us to stay in your cottage. You did a great job restoring it!

Great place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

Shipwright Cottage was just what we thought it would be. The pictures are a great representation of the home and overall feel of the place. The water views from most of the windows added to the relaxing vibe and the decor was adorable. We brought our paddle boards and enjoyed exploring the waterways surrounding the area. A favorite night out was taking the Oxford-Bellevue Ferry to Oxford. We enjoyed steamed crabs and a beautiful sunset at The Masthead at Pier Street and then had delicious ice cream at the Scottish Highland Creamery. St. Michaels is a great place to window shop and we enjoyed several good meals and cocktails there as well. Overall, if you looking to unplug and get away the cottage is a great place to go and never leave; however, if you are looking for more outside activities there are several fun things to do in the area.

Quiet Cottage Surrounded by Water and Wildlife

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect retreat for a stressed DC professional and her dog. Comfortable, charming cottage with perfect Bay decor, a book nook for reading and beautiful scenery. Pleasant, friendly, helpful and responsive owner who also provides 2 kayaks with life jackets, 3 bikes and plenty of helpful information on local beaches and eateries. Take a day to explore St. Michaels or head for Tilghman Island to watch the fishing boats come in. Bring a book or a bottle of wine, or both and watch the sunset over the water in the company of rabbits, deer, egrets, herons and more. I plan to return and have already recommended the property to friends.
