Located in Frenchtown, MD, 30 min south of Salisbury, MD on Chesapeake Bay's Eastern Shore. This is a private home on an island in the middle of ten thousand acres of salt marsh and near a national wildlife management area. Views from the bedroom, enjoy waterfront sunrises, water views from the living room & dining area, and the front porch enjoys waterfront sunsets. Perfect for a very quiet getaway. The house is a simple charming waterman's home that has been renovated to be comfy & relaxing. There is a full kitchen & gas grill outside if you want to cook your own meals, or you can take advantage of some of the local restaurants. Master bedroom has tv/dvd player. Two bikes and two kayaks are available for your use. Soak up mother nature. Bring your own fishing rods and catch crabs off the bridge coming into town. We are just 2 miles from a marina with a boat ramp where you can launch your boat or kayak, and then when you get back to shore enjoy cracking crabs or having a crab cake at the Hide-A-Way bar & grill. 3 Miles from the house is the Fairmount Wildlife Managment Area where there are huge impoundments that hold fresh water to attract all kinds of wildlife and waterfowl.

Rockfish are great! 30 miles away is Pocomoke, home to the Discovery Center where reptiles, Native American displays & maritime history all collide to offer all interests something to do. 45 minutes away go through Chincoteauge to get to Assateague National Seashore and see the wild ponies, and from there hit the beach and listen to the Atlantic Ocean as the waves roll in.
