about us

Cambridge Colonial Charmer

This century-old home combines historic charm with modern updates in a perfect location centered in Cambridge’s Historic District on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Great for vacation or to attend special events in the area.

Our large, fully updated home is located in the West End Historic District within walking distance of the downtown shops, restaurants, museums, the city marina and Great Marsh Park (riverfront park with picnic shelters, boat ramp, small sand beach and site of Eagleman Triathlon). We are located just three blocks from the Choptank River, which offers outstanding boating, sailing and fishing off of the old Choptank River bridge.

You are welcomed to our home by the wrap-around porch where you can catch a refreshing breeze on our wicker swing and lots of wicker seating in the open area. A screened-in section offers additional seating, a dining table and ceiling fans. The beautiful entryway is notable for its three story stairway with original chestnut wood details that continue throughout the home. The main floor includes an updated and equipped kitchen with island seating, a living room with pocket doors and a large dining room that features a table which opens up to nine feet for large groups. In addition there is a half bath with a full laundry.

The second floor offers three bedrooms – two with queen beds and one with a double bed, an office and two fully updated baths, one of which is en suite. The bedroom with the en suite bath also has an alcove large enough for a blow-up bed or playpen/crib. The third floor includes two bedrooms – one with a double bed and one with a double and a twin, and an updated bathroom. The house features central air and wireless high-speed internet and cable TV in the kitchen and living room, including a DVD player in the living room. The backyard is fenced in with a patio and small porch off the kitchen.

Cambridge is a charming “Main Street” communitywith great restaurants (many featuring local fresh seafood), unique shops and museums. The arts are well represented by the Dorchester Center for the Arts and downtown art galleries. In addition, nearby historic communities such as Oxford, Easton and St. Michaels offer excellent museums, arts and entertainment of their own.

For nature lovers, Dorchester County abounds with opportunities for hiking, kayaking, cycling, bird watching, hunting and fishing. Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge offers all of these activities in one location. Or enjoy a leisurely sail on the Skipjack Nathan at Cambridge’s Long Wharf or head over to the Hyatt Regency Resort, Spa and Marina for a round on the links, boating and both fine and casual dining on the riverfront. And Atlantic Ocean beaches are just an hour away!
