Located at the end of the road in perfectly peaceful Taylor's Island. The tidal marshes of Taylor's Island have been relatively untouched by the development of small towns and villages on the nearby shores. Small "islands" of loblolly pine and cedar forest dot the marsh system. Holland Point Preserve's 200+ acres is a classic illustration of Chesapeake Bay tidal marsh habitat, overlooking the confluence of the Chesapeake Bay, Slaughter Creek and the Little Choptank River. Holland Point lodging is a marvel of architectural beauty with wide hearth pine floors, incredible exposed beams and views from every room. Originally owned by the founder of the American Hunters and Shooters Association, Holland Point affords those vacationers enamored with the outdoors immediate access to the Blackwater Refuge, kayaking, fishing, crabbing and swimming off of the sandy shores are right out your screened porch (beware of jellyfish during parts of the summer season). The water depth at the private dock is 2' or less at low tide so kayaks and watercrafts that work well in shallow water are your best bet. We love the screen porch as well as the open floor plan. In the off seasons a roaring wood fire in the great room, dinner roasting in the kitchen and a good novel are all you need for a complete day. The Tower Room offers 360-degree views of the water and wooded surroundings. It’s the perfect place to host your friends, family, or corporate retreats. Holland Point Preserve is a "be where you are" type of vacation, pack it all in, the board games, horseshoes, fishing poles and reading material. Holland Point is designed to assist guests in forgetting there is another world of crowded beaches, boardwalks and hotels. For once, treat yourself to a vacation that you don't need a vacation from.

With a group our size sometimes you want to get away from everyone and Holland Point has a few nooks that are perfect for that - the window seat in the top of the lookout tower, a great writing desk on the landing of the second floor and the small first floor TV room with wetbar and desk became my perfect sewing retreat when the kids weren't in there playing with legos or watching a DVD.
The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Each family enjoyed having their own space with dedicated bathroom. And the house being so large the bedrooms were well separated from one another and quiet.
The kids enjoyed soccer games outside on the wide lawn and also collecting shells along the beach by the house and along the dock. The dog and I enjoyed long walks through the extensive trails on the property where we saw heron, hawks, ducks galore, fox and white tail deer. When we were done playing outside, the mudroom was the perfect place to drop our boots, coats and sandy shells to keep from tracking mess into the rest of the house.
The property is well-designed to serve multiple families, organized feeding lots of people all at once (yay for double oven, microwave and stove top!), and for everyone to relax and enjoy being together. The wifi was strong throughout the house. For our first two days and nights the wind blew like a gale and the house stayed warm and cozy.
We will definitely be back!
The property is amazingly beautiful...beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The weather was beautiful and our family kayaked everyday.
We have a beach house in SC , but this was such a delightful change and everyone is talking about doing this again.
