Overview

Bedding:  4 Kings  

A world away from it all - Hoopers' Island is actually comprised of three islands with authentic working watermen villages. The main island was allegedly bought from the Indians in exchange for blankets, what a deal huh? No bartering for anything needed once you arrive, Bay Water Cottage is wonderfully appointed and breathes with beautiful contemporary and organic architecture. We love the shade trees, the huge water views, the individual bedroom balconies, the deck and private dock – fab for fishing and crabbing. If you like to paddle – check it out – 3 kayaks and a canoe provided for guests. Look closely at the exterior photos and you will get a glimpse of your own island/sand bar on which to relax. Envision paddling a picnic lunch, cooler and blanket over to your sand bar and spending the day swimming and soaking in the sun. Paddle back should your refreshments dwindle. At day’s end store your boats and relax dockside drinking in the sunset views, grabbing a game of ping pong and grilling out. Exploring the Blackwater Refuge or the Harriet Tubman trail are at your doorstep but you may want to simply paddle the day away outside your backdoor.

The members of your team were the most professional and efficient. We've rented with VRBO in the past and felt "disconnected" from the rental process. I swore we would never go that route again & rent from a realtor instead. We are very pleased with Eastern Shore Rentals, the whole process, and the staff. There were no surprises; everything was as stated in the contract; and the knowledge that someone was on the other end of the phone should we need anything was comforting!

This property was secluded, quiet and full of nature. We enjoyed fishing & crabbing off the dock & in nearby Blackwater; taking photos of the wildlife and beautiful sunsets; and relaxing on the dock with good books! Thank you for the time to rest and relax in Bay Water... the best vacation ever. We would love to return next year!

When we arrived at the house the grill did not have a grid. I called your office and was told to look in the garage. Still no grid. Within the hour a very nice gentlemen arrived with a new grill. While we were setting up the grill we found the other grid lying in the grass. He was very kind and understanding. He wtild us he was on call all weekend if we needed anything at all. I am a customer service supervisor and the experience exceeded by expectations.

We are from Maryland and usually drive south for vacations. Eight adults were in our party 4 over the age of 80. Due to health issues they could not withstand long distances in the car. We checked out your internet sight and decided to give it a try. I am so glad we did. A 3 hour trip for us, the amenities were perfect. Memories for a lifetime were made. Thank you for making this trip special. We will definitely book again.

Bay View Cottage was a very nice property. Although I brought along paper and cleaning supplies, I was surprised to find that everything we needed was provided. Lovely home and immaculate. Loved all of the windows and view of the water. A little remote for our taste but it was nice to come back to this home at the end of every day.

The team ( I believe his name was Erik?) was thorough and prompt and definitely friendly. He returned our calls right away and assisted as we needed it. All of our emails were answered before we departed and followed through the entire trip. We had asked about crab pots and we the team was unsure, it may be helpful to visit the property a few times throughout the year to see everything that was available. There were kayaks, canoes, life jackets, crab pots, a beach ball, raft, games...even a fishing pole. So there was a lot to be offered at this property, minus the bugs.

The staff was great, the views were beautiful, fishing off the dock was wonderful, kayaking was a treat, and it was very serene and quiet. It was a great get away, and for a holiday weekend, quiet. We were glad we read the reviews because the store was a bit out of the way, but we arrived well stocked.

We truly enjoyed our stay on the Eastern Shore. The property was in excellent condition, and the amenities were wonderful: kayaks and canoes, crab pots, dishwasher and washing machine, etc. We enjoyed every aspect of our trip!

Our overall experience was great. Bay View Cottage has a wonderful water view location with beautiful sunsets. We took advantage of the canoe in the garage and paddled out to the sandbar. The house was cozy and comfortable. It was clean but could use a deep cleaning for cobwebs, etc. We were there in Sept.
and the fruit flies were annoying.
This was a girls getaway but I would recommend this property for couples, and families as well.

We had a wonderful time at this modern house by the bay. The sunset and sunrise were a fantastic sight through the bay windows and glass doors. I love how each room has its own balcony or entry to the dock. Thoroughly enjoyed the use of the kayaks exploring the sandbars and around the scenic coast. The location is tucked away from the beaten path so its perfect to recharge yourself from the urban clutter. A beautiful house.

Overall the home and location were ideal for a great view of the Chesapeake and being away from a big town. However, a leak in the roof caused damage to a laptop, hopefully, this gets fixed before the next tenant has an issue.
The location is ideal to not be in the center of a town, good location to go to Cambridge, St. Michaels, and Tilghman Island.

Great location and accommodations. Parking is only steps from the front
door. Windows everywhere (with screens to enjoy the breeze) provided
constant viewing of the Bay and the weather. While the weather didn't
cooperate during our visit, the home enabled us to enjoy our visit
completely. The home is very nicely decorated with full kitchen
capabilities open to the other living areas. We spent a fair amount of
time around the dining table, socializing and playing games. Satallite
TV reception was great with a nice viewing arrangement. Each of 4
bedrooms is large and the beds are comfy. The drive to the end of
Hoopers Island Rd. provided a new perspective of Maryland fishing
culture. And Old Salty's restauant only a few miles away had wonderful
Rockfish dinners we all enjoyed, with a pretty varied menu of other
eating options. Remember to bring binocculars for the trip to Blackwater
Wildlife Refuge. For a relaxed time on the Eastern Shore, this place
can't be beat.

We had an enjoyable time!

Tucked away behind a Refuge through a wooded area, this cottage was a welcome oasis from a hectic work week. The house has 4 spacious bedrooms with a open kitchen/dining area and family room along with some great outdoor activities - kayaking, canoeing and swimming plenty for us to do.

We had a great stay for a few short days. Wish we could have stayed longer. We had drizzling weather but still had a nice time catching and eating a few crabs right off the dock. And the wildlife was spectacular. The bed I slept in was very comfortable. I'd stay there again if in the area and looking for a reasonably remote location. Wish we could have canoed out to the sandbar -- but ran out of time.

Our stay at Bay View was delightful. The house was very secluded, which we liked. The seclusion implies there won't be any stores or restaurants in driving distance, so pick up your groceries before you get there (e.g. at the Walmart in Cambridge, which is one of the nearest stores).

Unending vista, soothing quiet, well-outfitted, modern comfort. Great fireplace. Afternoon sun builds up quite a lot of heat in living room. The wall of windows could use better shades, otherwise the air conditioning becomes quite ineffective. But we loved the place and would go there again in the fall, winter or spring. Thanks!

It was a perfect size for my family of 6 adults and 1 child. We liked the fact that each room had a king bed. We loved the view from every room. I liked the open space. We had fun playing ping pong but it rained all weekend so we could not take the kayaks out. Would definitely consider renting again. Wifi was not very strong. Furniture in family room a little outdated, but overall it was great. Thanks

We had a wonderful time overall. There is one things I would say would be deal breakers if we ever decided to go to the area again. The dock has NO SWIM LADDER. This is not only inconvienent it is very dangerous. Thank goodness the neighbors Mike and Nancy were very kind in letting us use their ladder. I actually fell and took quite a hit on the head and shoulder trying to figure a way to get out on the "slippery ramp" The fact that they also had absoulutely no utensils to use with the grill was a little weird. Not sure anyone needs 100 sets of chop sticks, but one grilling utensil would have been useful. Tongs for example. Went back and forth on question 2 above between 3 and 4. Went with 3 because of the lack of ladder. Made you think hard every time you wanted to jump in to cool off for an minute or two.
The location and the kayaks were perfect for a week of fishing,crabbing and just hanging out.

We loved the property and location. The house was beautiful and clean with all of the comforts of home. We kayaked and crabbed almost every day. We enjoyed a visit into a nearby town for dinner and a sailing tour with Captain Wade. We highly recommend these property for a relaxing g family vacation.
