Overview

When first entering this darling cottage the current owners promptly grinned and said "This will do" and thus was born "Thistle Dew". This cottage packs a punch with amenities typically dedicated to larger homes - private dock, pool, billiards room, two master bedrooms and fresh decorating. Love St. Michaels? You could easily bike the 4/12 miles to town and enjoy tacos and sangria at Gina's or brick oven pizza at Ava's. Interested in Easton, no worries a few extra miles drives you right to the Avalon Theater for a music show or a cocktail at the Historic Tidewater Inn's Hunter's Tavern. Then again, you may not want to leave Thistle Dew at all. The shaded deck, relaxing screened porch for dining, lovely pool and Oak Creek views might just anchor you to the property.

The experience couldn't be more customer friendly- from selecting the property that is just right for your family's needs to answering questions about the property after hooking ("what kind of life jackets are available?") to the incredible ease of check In and check out. The property itself was as advertised. This cottage was fabulous! The weather had turned quite cool and we were able to enjoy a fire every evening - the gas fireplace was a real plus!

This score is based on the excellent service we received. Our large family was in St. Michaels to attend a family wedding, and your staff worked with us to find two houses right near one another (actually next door to one another) to house everyone! They were so easy to work with and so accommodating. We have rented from various companies over the years, and I can honestly say, this was the most pleasant experience we have ever had working with a rental agency.

I have both called and exchanged emails with your office about early check-ins and late check-outs. You've responded to both and kindly allowed us to do both of those options. The lady I spoke with was lovely and you've been very accommodating. Thank you. Especially appreciated since we were travelling this time with our very young grandchildren. I have confidence renting with your organization. Not only do I know that your properties are beautifully kept up, but that I can call you if needs be. We have rented several properties now since first renting this house, Thistle Dew, in 2012. We particularly love Thistle Dew. The other properties were perfect for the larger family groups we had, attending weddings etc. But Thistle Dew we keep coming back to. My sister in law stayed with us again this visit. She recently rented something in North Carolina and said it was not nearly as good an experience. The house wasn't in great condition nor the utensils etc. and no-one to call.

We all absolutely LOVE Thistle Dew. We love the house, it's pretty and fun decorating and it's setting. From sunup to sundown the setting is perfect and stunning. The pool is a real treat when the weather is good and the availability of the canoes is much appreciated by everyone except the dog, who we particularly enjoy being able to bring with us on vacation. We hate to put him in the kennel and he just loves Thistle Dew too. This was the first time we've had a full house - including a toddler and a newborn - but it still felt comfortable. It is a very well equipped cottage too. We could not ask for anything more. It's fun, it's beautiful and, even when we had a couple of days of bad weather on this visit, we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. We are so happy that the owners allow us to share their lovely property. I hope we can come back. Soon.

The Sycamore Acres property worked out extremely well for our rather large family gathering. The large kitchen, family room and dining areas provided an excellent setting for everyone to spend time together in a relaxed atmosphere. And with the separate guest house there was ample bedrooms for everyone. The location on Oak Creek and the views made for a wonderful weekend.

Everyone I spoke with on the phone was very friendly and helpful. We have stayed in this particular cottage before, so we knew where it was. We were also a week earlier than when the swimming pool would ordinarily be available for use, but the weather was very warm and I called someone in the office to ask if it was okay if we could use the pool - even though it was dirty on the bottom - and if we should plug in the cleaning wand. They told us we could use the pool, even though it wasn't May 15th yet. But more wonderful, was that before we could get out there, a team arrived to clean the pool for us. I don't know if that was already scheduled or if your office staff arranged for it. I can only assume that they did. My husband was so pleased and it gave us 2 days of additional fun. Your service is above and beyond.

We stayed in this cottage for Mothers Day in 2012. We loved it so much we have been trying to come back ever since! When our eldest was married in Oxford in September 2012, 3 groups of family members coming from Chicago and Wisconsin and New Hampshire, all rented your properties. Not only would we but we have recommended you to others. Someone who visited one of the families during the wedding recently rented a property before their wedding. All the places have been wonderful. But Thistle Dew is my favorite. My daughters and I (and our dog!) especially love this spot. My husband came this time too. Next fall we hope to bring my oldest daughter and her husband who will be moving here from Florida. She considered flying up just to come because she knew how much we all loved it. But we will do this again. You can tell how much care goes in to the property. It is beautifully decorated but with an emphasis on relaxing and having fun. There is nothing we needed. Actually, except I couldn't find a welcome book or information about the property, so it took us a while to dig through things and find what the internet code was. A more obvious introduction to Thistle Dew would have been appreciated. That's the only thing I would ask for. It's a wonderful home and we thank you and them for making it available to us. We had a great weekend!

Thistle Dew is a very comfortable and well equipped house. The only thing missing was a tea kettle. The location was perfect for trips to St Michaels; the property, while not huge. was still very private and quiet. The pool is wonderful! We would definitely stay there again.

This was our third year visiting St Michael's and Thistle Dew was a perfect vacation home. Location is close to both Easton and St Michaels. Home is well decorated and immaculate. Pool was refreshing and we loved the floating lounge chairs. Screened porch was great in the early morning and late evening. Dock allows for a rental boat and we had perfect boating weather. All in all we loved this property.

We loved Thistle Dew. The house was so well decorated in reds white and blues. Great screened in porch, large back yard, deep water dock. The guest bathroom shower did not work, but it didn't slow us down since there were two other showers in the home. Great pool area in the front yard. Overall- an amazing stay!

Our family just loved Thistle Dew. It was immediate serenity and joy the minute we pulled in the driveway. It's setting is just gorgeous as is the dcor of the house. And the views from all rooms were stunning. Finally, the pool table and boating were the perfect entertainment. We will absolutely be returning for another escape from reality. Thanks so much!

Thistle Dew is the prefect little place for a getaway. We just happen to time our stay perfectly for fishing, cause they was a bitten. With that said this was our third time renting from Eastern Shore and our second stay at Thistle Dew. We do plan on staying again. Thank you to the home owners for allowing your vacation home open for rent, very much appreciated. Note to the rental office Thank you too, you do a great job. To anyone planning on visiting St Michaels or the surrounding area, no need to look elsewhere. This company and the homes they offer in my opinion would be one of the best.
