Charming, historic home in the Neck District, Maryland's most beautiful, unspoiled area. This adorable east-facing 100-year-old home sits on a generous lot (over an acre) with forever waterviews, mature shade trees, flowering perennials, roses, large fenced vegetable garden, breezy patio, wide covered front porch and more. This home is ideal for cycling enthusiasts, kayaker and canoers, hunting parties, and folks seeking an affordable, serene getaway close to boating, wildlife, kayaking and nature-based fun. It's not a ritzy luxury hotel - it's a funky country house where you can relax and hit your inner reset button.
Nestled in the Village of Hudson and overlooking picturesque Hudson Creek, Chesapeake Country House is situated in the center of one of the foremost hunting and rockfishing areas of North America. We can arrange for hunting and fishing guides for your next expedition.
Chesapeake Country House is an ideal setting for Eagleman triatheletes or any cycling enthusiast. We are directly on a premier bike route that meanders along the Chesapeake Bay on one side and lovely creeks along the other -- Rte. 343, the route of the Eagleman Triathalon included in Dorchester County's Biking Guide.
The rockfish are biting and our expert guide knows just where they hang out. And you can cook them up along with some fresh crabs caught just up the street up right on our grill!
Chesapeake Country House is an ideal year-round setting for
seasonal hunting for geese, duck & deer. We can help arrange for
an expert guide to take you to the foremost hunting grounds in North America.

Left on 10/26/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | NTReviewed Oct 26, 2012Stayed Jul 2012
This is a lovely older house with lots of room for families. We are very grateful that she accepts dogs and even better that the house is so clean you can't tell that dogs have stayed there. The electronics are a bit old but useable and there is no wifi. There are bikes available for use and the area would be great for bike riding but in July when we were there it was over 100 every day and just too hot. Thank goodness the house had great air conditioning and ceiling fans.
The house is in a great area about 10 miles from Cambridge. There is a wonderful general store about a mile away that serves amazing dinners - get a reservation. Otherwise you need to get groceries or eat in Cambridge.
I was quite disappointed that, unlike the photos and the phrase "forever waterviews", this house is not on the water. There is a creek across the street and maybe 100 yards away but if you are looking for a house on the Chesapeake Bay (as we were), unfortunately this is not it.
The owner and housekeeper were both very helpful and friendly. Read more
Actually, there is Wifi. I'm not sure when this reviewer stayed at Chesapeake Country House - perhaps before we installed it. Not to make too fine a point of it, but here is a water view from the front porch and from the upstairs front windows.
