Swans Rest is the "easy button" of vacation homes: no surprises, well decorated, and everything upgraded. The full onsite amenities include waterfront Adirondack chairs, which we love! The waterfront pool, grilling deck, kayaks, and dock for fishing and crabbing provide plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. With over 4,000 square feet, Swans Rest gives everyone plenty of space to be together inside as well. The screened porch is one of our favorite spaces with its great water views and proximity to the fabulous kitchen for late morning breakfast or an al fresco evening. Imagine enjoying a sunset drink while stoking the fire in the fire pit provided. Less than six miles from both St. Michaels and Easton, you can take your pick of visiting each town's farmers markets for the freshest produce locals can offer. Rent bikes or bring your own because the roads are flat and the shoulders are generous, making for great exercise to earn a lunch at one of the multitude of fabulous restaurants. Vacationing in privacy on slightly more than four acres yet within minutes to the Eastern Shore's two most popular towns is the "easy button". Come during any season; a Swan's Rest vacation will leave you refreshed.

I only needed to speak to your team once, but they were very nice and emailed me immediately the information that I requested.
We arrived earlier than we expected and the cleaning crew let us know when they would be finished which was very helpful. So I want to compliment your cleaning crew on not only a beautifully well-cleaned house, but for being very friendly and accommodating.

We loved this house! It was everything that the listing promised and more. We loved the big property, the pool, the fire pit, the deck and the screened-in porch!

It was a wonderful property. Well equipped and very easy to live in for a week. The screened in porch was a bonus! Despite a week of rain, we were able to have our meals outside. Kayaks' and canoe were an added bonus. Fenced in yard was perfect for our four legged friends.
It was an excellent experience and we have already booked our week for next year!

Swans Rest was perfect for our family. It was very convenient to St. Michaels. The property had a large back yard that was fenced in, and this worked perfectly for our dog. It also had a nice pool and a dock with 4 Kayaks. We especially loved the screened-in porch.

ESVR makes everything very easy -- helping to find the right rental for us, the ease of check in and out, handling of any issues, etc.
Having said all the things in my response to #8, I want to mention the positive features of the property that we liked: the small fenced area to let the dog out without him running all over the big property when we didn't want him to; the canoe and kayaks; the sun on the pool in the afternoon; the view from the kitchen and family room (we stayed in Grace Creek Cottage last year and there are no views of the water from anywhere, really, in that house); the fire pit; the huge yard (great for wiffle ball or buoy ball!).

ESVR was great to deal with and always pleasant and helpful.
Swann's Rest was even more than we expected. The setting was beautiful and the house provided plenty of room for the five of us. I was particularly pleased to find the side yards fenced so my dogs couldn't wander off. We had a terrific time and look forward to a return visit.
