Overview

Bird Dog Run is a recently renovated Victorian farm house just outside the town of St. Michaels. Located on Harris Creek, the property offers room to roam for both dogs and owners. Enjoy amazing sunsets while relaxing around the pool or by the shoreline while sitting in one of the many Adirondack chairs. The Victorian home features 3 bedrooms with the ability to sleep multiple families. Several different seating areas will allow you to find seclusion and catch up on your reading or just escape with your thoughts. If you enjoy cooking, you'll appreciate the upgraded kitchen where you can create some delicacies and share them in either the formal dining room or the casual seating area located in the solarium. Bird Dog Run offers both privacy and country comfort, yet is only minutes away form the shops and restaurants of St. Michaels.

We had a really lovely time at Bird Dog Run. our granddaughter used the dining room as her game room and the front porch as her art studio. She LOVED having the two sets of bunk beds and tried sleeping in each one. We had fun taking out the kayaks to explore the nearby coves (thanks for the life vests) and watching the heron and egrets strut about at the waters edge. The used the pool at least once a day if not twice. We ate most meals al fresco on the patio under the umbrella. (Thank you for spraying for mosquitos) The beds were comfortable; the kitchen and laundry room were well equiped and the porch provided a quiet and relaxing space to read and paint. And it was an easy jaunt to St. Michaels. We so enjoyed our stay.

We loved Bird Dog Run and felt privileged to have been able to stay in a historic home with so much character. The property is beautiful and is conveniently located close to the downtown area of St. Michaels. We definitely will consider a return visit!

Just the fact that the home is 150 years old only added to the ambience and made it so enjoyable. Like spending your vacation in a warm romance novel. You find yourself imagining all the people Who passed through the doors and lived in such a magnificent home. Thank you for the opportunity!

We had a wonderful vacation at Bird Dog Run. We had our twin 16 month old grandsons along and the pool was a definite plus for all of us. We also enjoyed time on the porch and patios which is what we rented this property for.

A beautiful relaxing property, well equipped all around, comfortable, and private/quiet. Perfect for a week of family time before the kids head back to school.

If the owners hired a landscaping team to weed, trim back the overgrowth and plant flowers in the pots I believe I would have been very pleased with property and probably wouldn't have noticed the other quirks i.e. bath fan in upstairs bath didn't work, shower pressure not good, game house reminded me of 1970s summer camp.

Beautiful waterfront home with all the amenities -- inside and outside. Upgraded kitchen, baths and large comfortable bedrooms -- we had plenty of space for our large family. The outdoor space is amazing. Incredible views at sunrise and sunset. Swimming, fishing and crabbing...all onsite. So much to do -- we didn't have enough time to try everything! We can't wait to come back. We highly recommend this property for your next family vacation.

We had a great time staying 2 nights at bird dog run. The privacy, tranquility, and setting was perfect. The house is a fantastic blend of history, character, and modern design. Something out of a magazine. The owners were always responsive and fast to answer any questions or accommodate. The pool is a perfect place to lay out or let the kids play while the dock was peaceful and great for the kids to fish off of. Got a chance to take a turn out on the kayak, and the sights are awesome. Also ran a few games of ping pong in the game shed. A quick trip into the quaint St. Michaels is fun for everyone. They have a winery and a distillery in town, which we didn't get to see, but we hope to next time. The last night we used the fire pit and could look up to see all the starts with the water back drop. Overall, bird dog run is a very cool place to stay and simply decompress. If you need somewhere to unwind, hang out, or just get away, this is a great place to do it

What an idyllic setting for our group of friends to enjoy the Eastern Shore! The beautiful historic home comfortably accommodates 2-3 families with a newly renovated kitchen and updated baths along with plenty of comfortable sitting areas throughout the house. The outdoor space is spectacular with views of Harris creek from several patios, hammocks, and an outdoor pool. There are plenty of activities to enjoy on the property itself which are easily complemented by the myriad of activities available in the St. Michael's area. I highly recommend this wonderful property to those who want to get away from it all!

This house has it all and our family enjoyed all aspects of this beautiful waterfront property. The house is renovated with a state of the art kitchen and wonderful gathering spaces. We also enjoyed the pool, game room, and kayaking in the inlet. We rented to the house for a long weekend with several families and there was plenty of room for everyone. We will be back soon! Also it's only 2-3 milies from St Michael center of town, so its a nice bike ride into town.

This property has it all: a beautiful historic house recently renovated, a new pool, a play house with ping pong and foosball, it is waterfront on Harris Creek and comes with kayaks, large family room all set up for wonderful crab feasts, it is located 15 minutes bike ride from a public beach, yes! a real beach with sand!, not too common on the Chesapeake. Besides, it is located a few minutes car ride from picturesque St. Michaels. We are a family of 5 and truly enjoyed our time there, the scenery is breathtaking and the house is very well equipped. The owners were really friendly and easy to deal with. I have already recommended it to friends and are making plans to go back next year.
