Located on the outskirts of the town proper of St. Michaels, this fantastic family vacation compound provides everything you need for a true Eastern Shore getaway. This lovingly restored farmhouse has a brand new gourmet kitchen, 5 bedrooms, cozy den with fireplace and a screened porch with gas fireplace to warm you on those breezy summer or early fall mornings. There is plenty of room for everyone to spread out, play games in the casual dining room or enjoy coffee and plan the day overlooking the formal garden. Enjoy the new gazebo, a perfect backdrop for capturing some treasured family photos!
The grounds are lush with mature landscaping, plenty of privacy, centuries old trees for shade on those hot summer afternoons, and room to roam for the little ones.
The newly restored barn supplies endless opportunities for your kids or kids at heart--game tables, air hockey and foosball. Work off the crab cakes and ice cream with the Vectra gym and rowing equipment!
The pool is flanked with a pool house, complete with changing area and two full baths for showering after a swim or a day on the water, and kitchenette for your favorite beverages. The hot tub is open seasonally for your enjoyment as well.
The deep water slip has easy access to the Miles River and St. Michaels harbor, and kayaks are included with this property to explore the smaller creeks and nature watch on a peaceful morning. Like a good Captain, the owners have taken meticulous care to ensure your enjoyment of this home--previous guests will appreciate the continual upgrades including new pool furniture, fully redone steps in the barn, and other improvements. This home offers something for everyone!
Please note hot tub is not open Dec-April.

I was pleased with the interactions with the team from the very beginning.

I had asked your staff if any cleaning/cooking supplies were provided and no one seemed to know. Therefore I bought/packed supplies only to find there were ample basic supplies in house. It would have been nice to know just what was provided. I am aware this varies with each property, but your staff should visit these sites to know what is available. Our family enjoyed the many amenities/sporting equipment available. There are not enough life vests for adults, but I believe you mentioned this in a correspondence. The leaking kitchen faucet hopefully has been repaired and we were offered immediate help but declined as it was weekend rates. You also mentioned some of the sporting equipment does not work and that is true...yet the barn rec area provided activities for our young adults. Also your letter on this property said we needed to provide our own charcoal for the grill and we arrived to find a propane grill. Perhaps you didn't know it had been changed. We enjoyed the beautiful property, but because of the expense, it was a one time vacation, thus the info on future rentals/advertisements is not of interest to us. Thank you for your assistance for our once in a lifetime family reunion/vacation!

We enjoyed our stay very much. The property worked very well for our extended family (11). Our grandchildren liked all the facilities available to them and the adults did also. The pool especially got a great deal of use by all.

We again enjoyed our family week get together. The property was everything we expected. Our four grandchildren enjoyed the barn and the pool. The only thing we found that we would want in a future rental would have been another bathroom. The pool house contained two full bathrooms , but the house contained only one full bathroom on each floor. Location was great.

Wonderful relaxing experience for us and our extended family while we attended our sons wedding in St Michaels. We could not wish for anything better for our group aged from 8 to 70 years. We spent 10 days there and felt we could have stayed longer time permitting

This is an beautiful home with so much to do that you cant ever complain about being bored. It was a little difficult to have a 2 year old there though. I believe there are 7 doors to the outside and no fence around the pool which really caused a lot of anxiety leading up to the trip but we just made sure that someone was always watching her and we bought a water alarm just to be on the safe side. Also, we were a little disappointed with the people who came to clean midweek. While the bathrooms smelled like bleach after they were finished cleaning, the floor was dirtier than it was before they came - mud and grass clippings. It wasnt a big deal but I just wanted to mention it so the owners were aware. Overall a great house, a great town and a great vacation! We hope we will be able to get there again.

We spent five glorious days at Captains Cove for our daughter's wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum on October 13th. We had a great time fishing from the pier, taking in the lovely setting from the Adirondack chairs, and relaxing on the back porch. This house is so welcoming, and we felt right at home. We especially enjoyed working out and playing air hockey in the barn game room. We highly recommend, and can hardly wait to return to Captains Cove-a great family gathering place.

We rented this house for a stateside family reunion and the location was superb. The outside amenities such as the pool, large lawned garden overlooking the bay and dock offered many opportunities for games and relaxation. Our kids caught so many crabs off the dock during our short stay!
Captains Cove had many pool toys, badminton rackets,croquet etc which offered endless fun for all the family. Similar to many other reviewers, the games room was well stocked with a wide range of games but with no aircon (only some fans) was extremely hot so we could only use it first thing in the morning, which was a shame. But on the positive note, there were enough to do outside that we didn't feel we missed the games room during our stay. Our biggest gripe was over the quality of the basic amenities you'd expect from a rental of this price range. The bathroom towels and bed sheets were very thin and as basic a range as you can get and it was clear they did not wash the quilts on the beds after each week of rental which showed signs of yellowing among other stains and were pretty off putting. Also, the beds were not very comfortable and probably due for a replacement. However, the housekeepers did arrive on Wednesday to tidy the house, but the linens do not get changed during your stay, which we knew.
Overall, it was a fantastic venue and with improvements it would be without a doubt a great vacation experience.

Our family of 10 recently stayed at Captains Cove for 11 nights and had a wonderful time. The home was beautifully furnished and well equipped with every thing we needed to make our stay most enjoyable. The kitchen was beautifully organized. The grounds outside were lovely and the pier was great for crabbing and docking the boat we rented. Conveniently close to downtown St Michaels yet in a peaceful, quiet cove. We could relax and enjoy the whole area. The kids loved the barn attic full of games: foosball, air hockey, ping pong, and much more. The outdoor pool and patio area with a convenient pool house also was enjoyed by everyone. Overall our stay far exceeded our expectations and we would recommend to anyone looking for a lovely place to stay with family in the St Michaels area that Captains Cove is a wonderful experience!

We had a great vacation at Captains Cove. The home is beautiful - it had everything we needed and more. The pool was terrific - it was a hot week so we used it a lot. The kids loved the game barn. Too hot to use during the day, but it was OK in the evenings or early mornings. The furnishings are beautiful, the kitchen had everything we needed and the butlers pantry came in handy for our group of 10. Landscaping is lovely.

About the Area - St. Michaels

During the War of 1812, St. Michaels gained its name as "the town that fooled the British". The residents of St. Michaels, having been forewarned that British barges were positioned on the waters to attack with cannon fire, hoisted lanterns into the trees above the city. This first successful "blackout" fooled the British into overshooting the town's houses and shipyards. Only one house, forever since known as Cannonball House, was struck. The industry was largely concentrated around shipbuil...
