At the end of this meandering lane lies this rural cottage, quiet and serene, overlooking Grace Creek and P T Hambelton's--a crabbing operation that can offer you the bounty of their daily catch if you are not so lucky!! Priced for families looking for a traditional Eastern Shore cottage, this is a great home for an impromptu getaway. On the outskirts of St. Michaels for dining and shopping convenience, our past guests tend to visit this house for crabbing, fishing and just getting away from it all!

Just came back from vacation, we stayed for 4days, the place was great, clean and very relaxing. We had a problem with one of the toilet and my husband called the office and couple hours later they sent a plumber to fix the problem. The kids had a great time crabing and jumping in the water and making smores, they wish for stay longer but we defenetly love to stay again next time.

The house was very well maintained and had all the kitchen equipment/utensils needed to cook meals for everyone. The yard is wonderful and definitely perfect for cozy afternoon naps on the hammock. Morning coffee was delightful out on the pier watching the sun come up over Grace Creek. Overall, I would recommend this location highly. Close enough to town, but far enough away to get really relaxed.

We spent 3 nights at Graceful View and were amazed at the lovely view and quiet seclusion. We were lucky to be able to participate in Tilgman Day on Saturday and a ride on a skipjack on Sunday. We enjoyed the fire pit each evening. If there had been a hot tub on the deck, Graceful View would have been perfect!

My wife, puppy, and I spent a perfect week at Graceful View. Our puppy spent the whole week swimming and chasing toys in the water while my wife and I crabbed, fished, read on the dock, and used the canoe to explore Grace Creek. When we didn't catch enough crabs for dinner there was a crabbing company right across the water where we could buy extra. The house was clean and comfortable, but besides one rainy morning we spent the whole week outside. Graceful View was only 6 miles from St. Michaels which allowed us to bike into town for lunch on the water and shopping. I really can't say enough good things about Graceful View, ESVR, and St. Miachaels. All in all we couldn't have asked for a better property and location, it was exactly what we were looking for for our week long escape to a quiet place on the water.

We loved the proximity to St Michael's downtown area. At the same time the location of the house was peaceful and secluded. Three couples stayed for a long weekend and had a great trip.

Great place to stay if you want time away from everyday life. Minor issues prevent me to giving 5 stars across the board. Was not aware that other houses would be in close proximity. There is a seafood processing building across the lake that at times was a little noisy. The house smelled a little moldy. Again minor issues but issues none the less. Surrounding area (St. Michaels) has great places to eat and visit. I would recommend this property to older people or families with very young children.

Very quiet. Location was nice. Property was well maintained.
Two concerns - mattresses on beds really need to be replaced. No cell phone/internet service in the area.

Great to have the dock and the wooded property. Quiet and comfortable. Access for dinghy sailing (my main activity) took a bit of time to get to open water but having the boat at the dock ready to go was great.

Overall I like the location and the house. It is very quiet there. I really think the owners need to upgrade the beds. They are the same poor beds that were there five years ago. Our rest was poor compared to the rest of the stay. Please, please, please upgrade the beds. ALL OF THEM. If they aren't changed I will rent another house the next time.
The grounds needed checked more carefully - there's a large whole in the lawn on the right side of the house near the gas grill that could break an ankle because of it's depth; we filled with pine cones so it is visible to the eye but the lawnmower will just blow those out; one of the boards at the beginning of the dock walkway is sticking up and needs nailed to avoid a tripping accident/injury.
The lawn mowing crew could have at least knocked on the door to alert us about mowing so we could have moved our clean vehicle and boat before being sprayed with dirt.
Couldn't air out the house (very musty)because windows sealed with paint; front screen door torn
Really appreciated crab pot, canoe, fire pit, gas grill and house furnishings.

Excellent location to relax after a day in St. Michaels, peaceful yet enough activity in harbor to avoid boredom.

The house could use some TLC. the lock on the front door looks like someone tried to pry it open; the master bedroom door would not stay closed and the sliding glass doors to the deck where very difficult to slide open. Other than that the house was clean, plenty of towels were provided, and lots of dishes, tableware and pots and pans. Lovely location, very quiet. used the dock to fish and canoe. Very close (10-15 min) from St. Michael's for shopping and dining.

I did not realise how remote this property would feel but it was the perfect retreat for totally unwinding. To access shops, restaurants, mobile phone networks or the internet we had to drive at least 15 minutes. The cottage was homely and suited our needs. Every morning I sat at the end of the pier watching fish jumping and listening to the birds - perfect!

The overall stay was good. There were some things that would have made the stay more enjoyable such as:
the dishwasher leaked so we couldn't use
the master bedroom door did not close
hot water ran out after one shower
no complete set of dishes, no large bowls
the cabinets and drawers in kitchen very unorganized
needed more than 2 rolls of toilet paper
Otherwise, we had fun. The house just needs a little tlc.

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...
