Overview

This fantastic 1920's Waterman's cottage has the charm and waterfront location that is hard to come by these days. Restored to give you some up to date comforts, such as new kitchen, added bedroom and renovated bath, this is a great spot to enjoy hours of bay watching, or slip over to Dogwood Harbor and observe one of the last skipjack fleets in the country. Pick up some fresh seafood and have savor a local meal at home with the best seat in the house! All this while watching the osprey and eagles nest and soar across the open sky. A great cottage for those who still appreciate the simple things.

simplicity was perfect!!! Clean, well appointed, bright, and very welcoming. Loved the open floor plan. Small dining table perfect for a jigsaw puzzle, my husband finished his!!! Because it was pet friendly, it provided us with the ideallocation to celebrate 30 years of marriage! Will definitely be back and recommend for any small family.

The Simplicity Cottage is a nice location on the water. It is a small 1920s restored house on the bay. The cottage is as described. A private road through farm field leads to this comfortable vacation cottage. The cottage is 20 minutes south of St. Michael's downtown. Shops and food on main street is all good.

One improvement suggestion: The water pressure in the bathroom shower was fair; needs to be improved. The cottage is in good shape and would recommend.

Very nice vacation. Loved the neighbors dog (Clyde)! He's a great guy. We did not do much with the local attractions. Lots of sunrise and sunsets and time to unwind. Very, very good. Just what we needed.

Wonderful cottage in an idyllic setting. Couldn't be more beautiful or peaceful. Right on the water, half a mile from the main road and surrounded by farms. Great location for a dog. Has everything you need for a really relaxing vacation. We saw eagles, and there is an osprey nest on the dock next store. You can swim right off the property as long as there are no jellyfish. We're coming back.

ESVR contacts and information are first rate. The cottage was just the right size for the three of us, two humans and a canine. Hard to imagine a better and more tranquil setting. Everything was as promised, clean and orderly. We enjoyed dock sitting, sunrises, and the peace and quiet. If it hadn't been for those pesky little black ants it would have been just about perfect. We'll definitely consider it next trip. Our first trip to Md. Eastern Shore was a very good one.

Simplicity Cottage was the perfect place for me and my husband to celebrate our anniversary. We have been going to the Eastern Shores for several years and may have found that perfect spot to return to. We had a great time and even got to enjoy Tilghman Island Day for a bit before heading home.
I do have 2 not so great comments:
We did lose power 2 times. Although there is a note about an alarm going off when power is restored, it did not specify where the alarm is located. It was not an easy task at 1:30 am finding it.
Also, upon arriving at the cottage, I noticed immediately that a shade from one of the master bedroom windows was missing. I called the realty company and they said there was one on order and we would have it Monday. When we left on Saturday, there still was no shade.
Although my husband and myself found these to be VERY MINOR issues, I still felt they needed to be commented about. Our vacation was still one of the best in Maryland yet! We look forward to returning - possibly to Simplicity.

About the Area - Tilghman Island

Tilghman Island is about 3 miles long and is separated from the mainland by Knapps Narrows. A drawbridge connects the two and is easily accessible. Tilghman is about 11 miles west of St. Michaels, so it is still within an easy day trip reach for the more touristy aspects of MD's Eastern Shore, but for those looking for that true "away from it all" feeling in an authentic, unspoiled environment, look no further than Tilghman Island.
