The main house and the guest house, located on 4 acres of waterfront property, were designed to optimize the beautiful water view. The main house, recently modernized and updated, was originally built in the 1800s. It is comfortable in any season. The house is both expansive and cozy, with a cook’s kitchen and multiple hang out areas. Adirondack chairs line the wide porch with views of the water.
The main house has six bedrooms and three full bathrooms. On the second floor there are 4 bedrooms, each with a queen sized bed. Two bedrooms face the water and the other two face the forest (which is pretty as well). On the second floor there is a full bathroom.
On the first floor there is a bedroom with 3 twin beds - one bunkbed and one twin bed. This is typically the kids room. It probably has the best water view of any of the bedrooms. Also on the first floor is another bedroom with two twin beds. There are two full bathrooms on the first floor.
Also included is a studio style guest house with a balcony, full bath, and king bed (view pictures).
There are 3 full bathrooms in the main house. The upstairs bathroom has a walk in shower. The first floor bathroom off of the kitchen has a walk in shower and a washer and dryer. The other first floor bathroom has a tub and shower. The guest house has a walk in shower.
The house is located in Princess Anne, Maryland. Nearby towns and attractions include:
Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge
Our house looks out on to Ellis Bay Wildlife Management Area (WMA) - a 3,200-acre wet wonderland. It is perfect habitat for ducks and wading birds, like herons and egrets. To protect Chesapeake Bay wetlands, this area was purchased by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources in 1957 and has been offering outdoor and nature enthusiasts recreational opportunities ever since.
Ellis Bay WMA is best seen by boat. Boat ramps, including one located on the property and others located nearby, provide convenient access. The many creeks that dissect the marsh offer views into the lives of the marshlands wildlife. Herons and egrets can be observed as they stalk their favorite fish. Between April and September, you may see the glossy ibis probing its long bill into the mud for small worms and crustaceans. Bald eagles soar overhead in search of a meal, while barn owls nest in boxes provided for them in the marsh.
Hiking & Biking
Walking and biking along our road is a great way to see nature and birds, especially red-winged blackbirds, herons, and the occasional bald eagle.
You can bike starting from the end of our driveway on an official bike path.
Start: Mt. Vernon Road (where road begins)
End: Manokin River Park, Princess Anne
You will ride east & south on this trail.
Please follow the biking icon signs you will see on the side of the roads.
Deal Island Wild Management Area (WMA) is a 13,000 acre property that contains forested wetlands and a 2,800-acre man-made pond or "impoundment." The water insects and crustaceans, as well as the abundance of wigeongrass, horned pondweed and other favorite waterfowl foods makes Deal Island one of the best places in Maryland to bird watch. Ducks! Geese! Swans! Waterfowl are the featured performers on Deal Island. Many, many species of waterfowl, in all their colorful splendor, nest, feed and migrate through this area. Deal Island also supports one of the largest concentrations in the state of herons, egrets and ibis. One of Maryland's only breeding population of black-necked stilts thrive there. The rare Eurasian wigeon, a type of duck, is frequently seen in the large flocks of American wigeon that spend the winter in Maryland. Hikers and all-terrain bicyclists will enjoy the trail around the marsh impoundment, watching the resting waterfowl or capturing them on film.
Pemberton Historical Park is also close to the house. The park is comprised of 262 acres and 4.5 miles of nature trails, offering visitors the opportunity to explore unique ecosystems that bring together tidal and fresh water wetlands, fresh water ponds, upland pines, hardwood forests and meadows. The trails at Pemberton Park are restricted to walking and hiking only. Due to safety concerns, no biking is permitted. Pick up a trail guide in the Welcome Area which outlines each loop of the trail, describes its major ecosystems and denotes any significant features that may be found along the way.

The Public House, home to Evolution Brewery, is only 20 minutes from our house. When we eat out, 90 percent of the time we go here. It was voted "Best New Restaurant in 2012" by Metropolitan Magazine Readers. Located adjacent to the brewery in the southwest side of the building, you will find a unique atmosphere unlike any other local restaurant. It is hard to believe this building once housed the Salisbury Ice Plant and each room was once a big freezer. Now creatively designed with a sleek urban feel, you will find a welcoming environment. A large exposed brick wall in the bar area features a giant chalkboard that showcases fresh cheese and meat selections, creative daily Chef’s features, as well as a listing of available eVo beers. The Public House menu offers seasonally selected items as well as some traditional pub favorites.

In the town of Princess Anne is a big grocery store called Food Lion. There are more grocery options nearby in Salisbury. Close to the Food Lion is the Beach to Bay Seafood Company (address below). We love their seafood as do many others. If you want to have seafood for lunch or dinner we recommend going there to do carry out. Their dine-in atmosphere isn’t awesome, but their food is awesome. Typically we buy their non-cooked seafood (to make at the house), the clam chowder, and their crab cakes.
