Country Cottage

October 29, 2015

The Cottage at Heron Cove was absolutely wonderful. I visited in October, and took great pleasure in watching autumn leaves scurry along before the breeze. Also, it was quite enjoyable to see and hear the Canada geese that flew low over the house every morning. Great blue herons could be seen feeding in the area, as well as many different species of songbirds To describe the cottage, I use a word that could be considered old-fashioned; "charming". The knotty-pine flooring was beautiful, and the place was quite snug on those chilly, windy evenings. My vacation at The Cottage was one of the most restful, therapeutic trips that I've ever taken, and I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway.

"Sea-renity Now!"...

September 7, 2012

...is the name of my boat and boy did we find peace and serenity at this cottage. This was an ideal spot for my family of 4 for a quiet relaxing vacation with access to lots of adventure. Each day we saw herons, deer, bluebirds, bunny rabbits, ducks, geese and while on the creek saw ospreys and eagles as well. A short drive to Blackwater Refuge were picture perfect photo ops for egrets, herons, eagles and turtles. The surrounding towns of Cambridge, Easton and St. Michael's offered nice shopping, resturants and ice cream parlors and we enjoyed an evening trip to the boardwalk at Ocean City. But mostly, we enjoyed the water access with crabbing from the dock or off our boat and fishing in the bay for bluefish and rockfish. Our boys also mastered the wakeboard in the river and we only saw one other boat on the creek whole time we were on vacation which made for a nice quiet time. The cottage was clean and well equipped and the owner was super nice. He greated us on the second day after we settled in to provide a map of the area and point out some interesting historical sites which we enjoyed visiting. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a fairly private quiet getaway in a small cottage updated with modern conveniences. We've already booked our return for 2013! Joe, Newton, NJ

Fabulous getaway

June 3, 2012

Our family (of 4) absolutely loved The Cottage. It was clean and well-maintained. The grounds that it sits on HUGE, the pier is lovely, and you get views of nesting Osprey on pilings in the water. I have no complaints at all and look forward to our next visit.

Beyond Expectations

May 19, 2012

We stayed here for 4 days recently and had a wonderful time. The photos on the site, although beautiful, do not do the cottage and the surroundings justice. The inside of the cottage is well appointed with every modern convenience, very nicely furnished (again the photos don't do it justice) and comfortable, beautiful hardwood pine floors, new appliances, comfortable beds. And very very clean! The outside views and the grounds are spectacular. Every morning we sat on the porch with a cup of coffee, watching the sun rise and seeing deer and rabbits in the yard. In the evenings after a day of bike riding we had a glass of wine in the same spot. The hot tub was fantastic. My only tiny complaint was that the porch furniture could have been more comfortable, but then again we may never have wanted to get out and explore. A hammock would have been wonderful in that setting! Recommend Kool's Seafood on Washington St in Cambridge for crabmeat and steamed crabs and rockfish. Delicious! Anyway, we are still having withdrawal from being at the cottage and hope to be back soon. This was one of the best rental experiences we've ever had.

The Cottage vacation

July 28, 2011

The cottage was perfect. It was nicely decorated and everything that you need to live was available. All of the appliances were new and worked great. The A/C was very cool on the really hot July days. The screened in porch was scpetacular at night for board games and adult beverages. The house is very seculded and was a perfect relaxing get away. We travelled with our two boy 15 & 13. They had plenty of room for exploring and sporting activities. We all enjoyed the boat dock. The boys were very sucessfull crabbing off the dock. I would highly recommend it to any one.

Great Getaway

August 5, 2010

The Cottage at Heron Cove was everything we had hoped for. The house was immaculate when we arrived. The yard is humongous. We don't have kids but remarked that it will be a great place for our future grandkids to run and play. The house was well appointed, right down to spices and olive oil in the kitchen, toilet paper and paper towels, etc. We loved fishing from the dock, and some mornings and evenings the water was like glass. We got some great sunrise photos. We also loved the hot tub, and there is a great gas grill. The location was very secluded and idyllic. A couple of days we didn't even leave the house, but just hung out on the screened in porch or on the lawn in the shade. We also ventured out. Took a couple of scenic drives. Went on a riverboat ride one day at Suicide Bridge. Had a nice lunch and visited the Maritime Museum at St. Michael's, a short 30 minute drive away. Finally, our "landlord" Bob, who also owns the next closest house, couldn't have been a more gracious host. After I made the reservation I asked him what kinds of things there are to do in the area. "Plenty!" he said, and he proceeded to tell me a few. Then a couple of days later I received a big envelope filled with visitor's brochures. What a thoughtful gesture! He also stopped by our first day there to see if we had any questions and to make sure we had everything we needed. And he called later in the week just to check in. We would not hesitate to stay there again!
