Located in Frenchtown, MD, 30 min south of Salisbury, MD on Chesapeake Bay's Eastern Shore. This is a private home on an island in the middle of ten thousand acres of salt marsh and near a national wildlife management area. Views from the bedroom, enjoy waterfront sunrises, water views from the living room & dining area, and the front porch enjoys waterfront sunsets. Perfect for a very quiet getaway. The house is a simple charming waterman's home that has been renovated to be comfy & relaxing. There is a full kitchen & gas grill outside if you want to cook your own meals, or you can take advantage of some of the local restaurants. Master bedroom has tv/dvd player. Two bikes and two kayaks are available for your use. Soak up mother nature. Bring your own fishing rods and catch crabs off ...Located in Frenchtown, MD, 30 min south of Salisbury, MD on Chesapeake Bay's Eastern Shore.

Two bikes and two kayaks are available for your use. Soak up mother nature. Bring your own fishing rods and catch crabs off the bridge coming into town. We are just 2 miles from a marina with a boat ramp where you can launch your boat or kayak, and then when you get back to shore enjoy cracking crabs or having a crab cake at the Hide-A-Way bar & grill. 3 Miles from the house is the Fairmount Wildlife Managment Area where there are huge impoundments that hold fresh water to attract all kinds of wildlife and waterfowl. Ride your bikes or walk the trail and see Bald Eagles, Great Blue Heron, and all kinds of waterfowl. You'll be surprised to find you are the only people there. 10 miles from the house is Great Hope Golf Course, open to the public, and they have a restaurant, too. 20 miles away is Crisfield, the birthplace of Lem & Steve Ward, the famous Ward Bros decoy carvers, & more restaurants. From Crisfield you can pick up a ferry to Smith Island or go to Tangier Island and hear the locals talk - they still have an Elizabethan accent! Crisfield also has regular and flyfishing guides if you would like catch your own dinner. Rockfish are great! 30 miles away is Pocomoke, home to the Discovery Center where reptiles, Native American displays & maritime history all collide to offer all interests something to do. 45 minutes away go through Chincoteauge to get to Assateague National Seashore and see the wild ponies, and from there hit the beach and listen to the Atlantic Ocean as the waves roll in. Parking is never a problem anywhere, except the beach, plan to go early or late and beat the crowd if its July or August. Life here is easy, the way it should be. As you can tell, I love my neighborhood! - Iris Close to Princess Anne, Crisfield, Chincoteague, Assateauge, Salisbury, Berlin, MD and Ocean City, MD GPS address: 25678 Frenchtown Road, Westover MD, 21871 P.S Internet is available and dogs must be kept on leash when outside.

For the price you can do better. Crickets, gnats and fruit flies galore. There are Kayaks for use, but the dock is a piece of crap, so to use them you need to walk through knee deep muck to get to water deep enough.

About the neighborhood
My house is located in Frenchtown, a quaint Eastern Shore town on an island looking over Tangier Sound on the Chesapeake Bay. Its a quiet place with only 17 houses and no commercial stores, but there is plenty to do in the area. Bicycling is easy on these flat back country roads, so bring one along for everybody. 2 miles away in Rumbley is a Marina with a restaurant - you cancrack crabs or have a delicious crab cake right after you get back from launching your boat or kyak from the public boat ramp. 3 miles away is the Fairmount Wildlife Management Area where you will see Bald Eagles, Great Blue Heron, waterfowl of all kinds. Walk or bike the impoundments, you be amazed you are the only people there. 10 Miles away is Great Hope Golf Course, open to the public. 20 miles away is Crisfiel...
