“Patrick's place was exactly how he described it - sparkling clean, all you could want in a small cabin overlooking a really bucolic creek. Great host and excellent communicator! The bonus for us was having full access to kayaks and canoe. We paddled out to the nature reserve in Chesapeake Bay and had a splendid day of swimming, paddling and observing cool aquatic life. Also a Pellegrin Falcon spotting! Much thanks Patrick and family!”

“As other reviewers have said, this place is even better than it looks in the pics, which is saying something given that it already looks pretty good in the pics. My partner and I just spent a week here, enjoying the waterfront views and privacy. The cottage sits at the end of a farm lane, surrounded by marshes and wheat fields on one side, and a long waterfront on the other. Tons of great birdwatching, and one night we saw a dolphin. I'm rarely satisfied with the cleanliness of any place, especially in a pandemic, but I had absolutely no complaints about Genevieve's rental. Floors, fridge, shower: everything was spotless. The place is very stylishly decorated, with fixtures you wouldn't expect in a rental (e.g., stone countertops, higher-quality faucets, etc.), and wifi was fast enough for Zoom meetings (the wifi works even a little ways outside the cottage, if you want to sit in the yard and work with a view). Communication with Genevieve was easy and quick (her daughter dropped off a needed kitchen utensil about 10 minutes after I asked about it). We especially enjoyed the fire pit while watching the sunset, as well as the total privacy. I'd recommend this rental to close friends and family, and I definitely hope to stay here again.”

“JD’s house was just what the we needed as a family. Being able to take walks and enjoy the Bay was priceless. House looks small from outside but plenty of room for the six of us. The screened in porch was great and we ate every meal listening to the Bay in the background. We all loved the house. It reminded me of my youth when the appliances were made to last and the furniture wasn’t all from IKEA. WiFi worked great and the ample fishing/crabbing gear provided kept the kids busy. JD was easy to get in touch with and responded within minutes.”
