Rates Discounted temporarily** 5+ acres, wide water riverfront, sandy beach, dock & pool, boats & bikes. Beautiful, newer custom 3-story waterfront home w/ deep wrap around porches, 6/7 bedrooms w/ 5 baths & can accommodate up to 20 guests*. Close to town, yet your own, secluded compound for extended family & friends. Gorgeous upscale neighborhood just 10 mins from Cambridge & Easton MD. A perfect retreat with many, massive entertaining areas Family retreat perfection! 'Saddle Beach', our fabulous, newer waterfront owner’s home is on 500 feet of private Chesapeake waterfront. It’s a grand vacation home with idyllic wrap around porches, your own private pool, dock, beach and pond. It's just 10 minutes from the renowned Hyatt Chesapeake Bay Spa and Resort, countless restaurants and quaint shops and, if it suits you, less than an hour from Ocean beaches. 'Saddle Beach' is on Dorchester County's exclusive McKeil Point neighborhood on the Little Choptank, just off the Chesapeake Bay. The property has a mile-wide view and a 200' dock. The home is exceptionally furnished, with 4200sf of living area with another 1200sf of open and screened porches. 6 bedrooms with an additional den with sofa-bed and bath with walk-in shower. A large eat-in kitchen, two full size refrigerators, massive open entertaining area with 3 living rooms and a study. The 3rd floor is designed for kids with a recreation area, wide dormers, a full bath, and two bedrooms with 7 beds. An in-ground pool is off the porch & the home has beautiful millwork and exotic, reclaimed hand-cut wide-plank walnut floors. A lovely tidal pond is just off the living room. The Property: The perfect Family Retreat! Gorgeous wrap around porches include a screened outdoor eating area overlooking the pool. The compound was designed as an owners' dream, and includes a pool, ample decks for entertainment, a gorgeous beach, private natural setting, and walkways to the adjacent marsh. Towering loblolly pines, aromatic cedars, and marsh grasses dot the landscape. There is a rustic tidal pond next to the house providing rest for swans, ducks, & geese. The dock stretches 200 feet into the river with 3 berths for boats and seating for your enjoyment. Wildlife abounds; you may find yourself crabbing and fishing all day. Yes, our crabbing is excellent! The unique, secluded neighborhood consists of a single, mile-long road on its own peninsula with Dorchester's finest homes, stretching far into the Little Choptank River. The quiet street invites scenic bike rides or long walks to watch the sunsets. The Area: A local country store, restaurant and boat ramp is 5 minutes away and the Chesapeake Bay, with its fishing, cruising, and endless sunsets, is out your window. The town of Cambridge is ten minutes away, with a pre-civil war, Victorian inspired downtown, and countless restaurants and shops. It’s not much further to visit the Maryland towns of Oxford, Easton, or Saint Michael's to walk the streets, take in the restaurants, or visit art shops and galleries. On the property, relax! Go no further than the shoreline to find great swimming, crabbing, fishing, sunning, or boating. The sandy beaches are a luxury all year long, and the pool provides for a swim just off the kitchen and porch. Endless wrap around porches and a stone fire pit is the centerpiece for nighttime get-togethers. In the neighborhood, bike or walk down our secluded peninsula and enjoy marvelous sunrises and sunsets among the finest of Maryland's summer and weekend retreats. Sports both on water and land. Fishing Creek provides wide, almost endless passages for quiet kayaking, fishing, or pleasure boating. We provide a canoe and several kayaks. The waterskiing is excellent if you have a power boat. The other side of the peninsula faces the Chesapeake Bay over Madison Bay and provides an open door to sailing or to the many top fishing spots. In town, there are boats to rent for a sail on the Choptank. Bike tours from all over the world flock to the eastern shore because it is flat, the roads are good quality, the traffic is light, and the sights are endless. Blackwater Refuge offers world-class nature views, and you can also bike in Easton, Saint Michaels, and Oxford, and there are many bike tour maps available to the visitor. There are two fantastic golf links nearby. The River Marsh course at the Hyatt Chesapeake is renowned. Hog Neck (18 miles) has a four-star rating from Golf Magazine. There are three additional courses between starting just nine miles away. * - additional charge for larger groupsMore

About the neighbourhood
Close to Cambridge MD, the house sits on five (5) acres and the street is the nicest in the County. It's on a 2-mile peninsula jutting into the wide, Little Choptank River just off the Chesapeake Bay. A single lane runs the length of the peninsula with fine, luxury properties on either side; our home is just a few homes from the point. The street is private and lovely. The home is only ten (10) minutes from the town of Cambridge.
Getting around
You'll need a car since we're a quiet, serene, country waterfront location. Only 10-15 minutes to town
