Charming waterfront cottage in the village of Newcomb, just outside of St. Michaels, MD. With a large, tree-lined backyard overlooking Oak Creek, a long dock and a sandy beach, you can spend your afternoons relaxing outdoors, enjoying the water, and taking in the evening stars while soaking in the spa. Back Street Cottage is a comfortably furnished and renovated home just minutes from historic St. Michaels. Outfitted with modern amenities, you will not be wanting for much as you vacation on Maryland's Eastern Shore. If outdoor activities are your thing, launch a kayak and explore Oak Creek and the banks of the Miles River, or grab a bike and cruise to the Oxford/ Bellevue Ferry where you can float over to Oxford for a scoop of ice cream at the Scottish Highland Creamery. Prefer to imbibe a glass of wine or craft beer? Talbot County is home to multiple wineries and craft breweries. If you're a shopper, you'll appreciate that St. Michaels and Easton are filled with small, independent clothiers and gift shops.

Great location next to the boat launch. Nice dock and view of the water from the yard/house. Quiet. Convenient to St. Michaels, Easton, etc. The only minor issue is minimal parking if you have a trailer and/or more than one car and the street is very narrow. We were able to make it work since we had a shorter trailer for jet skis and could manipulate the trailer in the parking by hand and able to squeeze the truck beside it. Definitely want to return to the house again.
Promptly returned my calls when had questions before booking.

We had an amazing stay! Our golden retriever puppy got to take his first swim off the little beach out back and had a ball running around the huge lawn. Scenery was great and we went out on the kayaks which was great! Only an 8 min drive into downtown St Michaels. Perfect relaxing weekend getaway.

Wonderful place for a family or romantic getaway. I couldn't have asked for anything more! It was beautiful inside and out, great view and location. Amenities were such a bonus! I could not speak more highly of this property. I will absolutely be recommending this property to my family, friends and colleagues. We are already trying to book our next stay . The location, cleanliness, space, property and amenities were absolutely perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything more. It was the perfect combination of cozy, clean and comfortable. The kitchen was great for cooking and preparing meals with the added bonus of the barbecue in the backyard. Such a wonderful space inside and out for a family with children or for a couple. Anybody can make great use off this home! The lighting was also great. I love natural sunlight and we had such a beautiful view from our bedroom. The location on the water couldn't be any more ideal.

Service and support was terrific,house was in great shape and very comfortable.
The property is utterly charming!! It is comfortable and well equipped, and the owners clearly have thought of everything to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The house is situated on a beautiful waterway which is lovely to explore by kayak, and feels private and secluded yet is just minutes to both Easton and St. Michaels. The home more than met my expectations!!! The owners definitely care about their guests' experience and have thought of everything for a perfect getaway.
The views of Oak Creek from the home are lovely and peaceful and the proximity to the quaint towns of St. Michaels and Easton make this both a relaxing and interesting place to visit.

the house is very well appointed. there is everything you could possibly need and its impeccably outfitted and super clean which is very important to me. the minute you enter, you feel as thought its YOUR home. i loved the water front venue. so great for rowing ...super tranquil, almost hypnotic and then at night you get the cool metro vibe with the bridge that is illuminated with lights.ps you get the view from two of the three bedrooms. great town, tons to do. charming little antiquated block. i was ready to move right in and not leave

It was a great place, well priced and so cozy. There were 5 of us and there was plenty of space. We loved sipping coffee on the dock and relaxing in the hot tub at the end of the day. The kitchen is well equipped for all types of meal preparation. The fireplace and outdoor fire pit were great to sit around. Hard to pick one feature as I have noted above there were many facets of the property that made out stay perfect.
