About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

Located on renowned Water Street within Chestertown’s historic district, this early 1900s row house has views of the picturesque Chester River, historic Hynson-Ringgold garden and stately 18th and 19th century mansions.

Just steps from the town center, dock, and marina—and surrounded by some of the finest historic architecture in Maryland—you can park your car in our private drive and discover all Chestertown has to offer. Stroll brick-lined streets that take you back to the time of George Washington or visit Chestertown’s many contemporary specialty shops, galleries, cafes and fine restaurants. Enjoy a variety of cultural and historic events at Washington College or take in a live performance at the Prince Theater.

Want to get out on the water? Book a sail on the historic schooner, Sultana, berthed within view of your house or take a dinner cruise on the riverboat, Packet, departing just steps from your back garden gate. For nature lovers eager to explore the quiet river or countryside, rental kayaks and bikes are available a short walk away.

Many of Chestertown’s special events occur right outside your door, including the spirited Tea Party Festival, renowned Chestertown Jazz Festival and popular “Downrigging Weekend.” Don't miss the farmer and artisan’s market every Saturday or fun First Friday’s each month.

"Chestertown is a treasure hidden in plain sight," said Richard Moe, president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. "A small, historic and relatively unspoiled Eastern Shore town, Chestertown had the good sense to hang on to what makes it so special. The result is a vibrant community that offers travelers an ideal retreat."

This three-story, three bedroom row house is comfortably furnished with everything you need to enjoy your stay, including a fully equipped kitchen. Situated behind the town’s riverwalk and directly next to a historic garden, it’s a private oasis where natural light fills every room. Relax on one of three porches. Two rear porches offer both sunrise and sunset river views, while a front porch invites you to sit and indulge in a favorite Eastern Shore pastime—watching the world go by.

A wonderful house in a perfect location = a lovely weekend with friends and family

  • 5 of 5

The house is located on the Chester River and in the heart of Chestertown so the location is perfect and the views are grand. We especially appreciated the 2nd floor balcony - so relaxing to look out over the river! The house is well decorated and comfortable; the kitchen nicely updated. All in all, a very nice place to stay.

Our hosts also were welcoming and made certain that everything was in place. They were very patient with us when we could not find the second set of keys. Thanks to them, we finally found the keys and proceeded with a weekend full of good memories.
