I am originally from Virginia. I moved to Pennsylvania and missed the bay and the waters of Virginia. I would travel to St. Michaels often via boat and car and found Grandview. Although charming, it needed a lot of work. I have owned Grandview since 1985 and have improved it every year. Grandview has good bones and is spiritually rejuvenating for everyone who comes. Some of my guests have been coming since I bought it and most have come back many times over the years. Very fond memories!
