Nanticoke Harbor is an easy 4/10 mile walk right down the road. Put your boat into the water there and park your vehicle. There is also a small beach right at the Harbor.
Roaring Point beach is just beyond Nanticoke Harbor - an easy 7/10 mile walk or bike ride from the house. This is a wonderful sandy beach with perfect water temperatures in the summer, and a soft shallow slope - perfect for swimming and playing in the water.
Cedar Hill Park and Marina:
Cedar Hill Park and Marina houses tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball diamonds, a soccer field, a playground for the kids, a scenic overlook with a charming swing, and of course, the marina.
Just beyond Cedar Hill lies our local general store, Westside Market, with a deli counter (try the pulled pork or chicken salad) and a small market .
Just beyond the market lies Boonies Chop House and Pub, the local restaurant serving wonderful chowders, steak, burgers and fish. Try the pizza special on Sunday nights and the burger special on Wednesdays (of course, call first to make sure specials are still available).
Another restaurant, the Red Roost is located in White Haven, about 10 minutes away. The Red Roost is famous for its fresh seafood. It frequently hosts busloads of tourists who come specifically for their food.
The Town of Salisbury is 19 miles to the north and provides an abundance of restaurants, shopping and movie theaters.
The area hosts a number of four-star golf courses for the golfing aficionado. We can provide you with a list of those.
From the Farmhouse, day trips to other areas of the Eastern Shore are easy. Ocean City and Assateague Island National Seashore are an easy 50 minute drive. Cambridge and Crisfield are about 45 minutes away in the other direction. Take daily ferries back and forth to Tangier and Smith Islands. Cypress State Park in Delaware is one of the few remaining Cypress forests. The hardest thing will be choosing which to do.
Use the Farmhouse as a base for antique hunting. Nearby Snow Hill, Berlin, and Princess Anne County are fun places to browse and shop. A special note should be made about Berlin, the site of filming for Runaway Bride and Tuck Everlasting.
Hunting and Fishing:
The Farmhouse is a perfect place to stay for hunting and fishing. After a day in the cold or the sun, come back to soothing civilization at the Farmhouse.

Thanks Bert. The house was amazing! Do you know the history of the building? What state was it in before the beautiful renovations? … We had a great time at state park beach, bought a bushel of live crabs and really enjoyed ourselves.
Thank you for sharing your house with us. We truly enjoyed our stay there. We absolutely LOVED the farmhouse - from its unique decor to its solitude.

Thanks … My son, who will be joining me, stayed with his mother at your house in September. He enjoyed being there and looks forward to another visit.
We had a great time - the house was fantastic and it was a perfect place to relax over the Christmas break away from New York life stress!
