“Lovely cottage in a lovely town”
Reviewed 1 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is a lovely little cottage in a lovely little town. The location is perfect- right in the middle of St Michael's. Close to the harbor, the Chesapeake Maritime Museum, nice shops, great restaurants. The cottage was spotless and very comfortable. The enclosed back patio was a nice amenity. The kitchen area in the cottage is a good size (although has very limited cabinet space for storing any groceries you may purchase or have with you- but there is a good amount of counter space). We didn't spend much time in the front original portion of the house. It is lovely and beautifully restored but a little dark. Perhaps some more/brighter lighting? There were also some burned out bulbs throughout the house. Would have replaced them but there weren't any extras in the house. These were very very minor issues though. We were able to bring our Labrador Retriever and were able to take him with us when we would go out to dinner- lots of places that were dog friendly. For us, being able to have our pretty large dog with us was the best part of being able to rent this home. It was really perfect for all our needs. We would love to rent this home again whenever we return to St Michael's.

“Excellent location and property...wife and I loved it.”
Reviewed 29 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Stayed here for our Honeymoon five years ago, and stayed here recently for our fifth wedding anniversary. Great location, two blocks from main street and restaurants. Lovely place, great location...can't say enough. Thanks for the renewed great times/locations.

“Excellent Family Weekend getaway”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have travelled to St Michaels in the past and found this house while on walk around the area. A year later, we rented it and loved it so much that, we hope to make this our new family tradition. House was perfect...we loved its historic charm and the amazing location (near the marina and museum, grocery store, shops and restaurants).

“Perfect location and house!”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Couldn't have picked a better house to stay! Blocks from restaurants, the famous Crab Claw restaurant, marina, and so nice to have a place to park the car and be able to walk everywhere. Around the corner from a park overlooking the water. Central air worked great, screened porch was nice to sit around and had some nice updates to the kitchen. Floor boards in one of the rooms look like they could use a little updating but very sturdy and a great historic feel of a house with nice updates, cable and tons of space. This was by far the best place we could have stayed, wish we could've stayed longer! Went to a wedding at the Oaks this weekend and this cottage turned out a better place to stay than on property at the wedding. GREAT house don't pass this up! Owner is super responsive and very helpful as well.
