The space
OUTSIDE: Home is one floor located directly on the Sassafras River out the front door (runs into the Chesapeake Bay) and nestled in a quaint, small-town setting.

The backyard has patio & garden area, swing set, full basketball court, volleyball \ badminton net area. Only two houses away from a small, sandy private beach to which you have access, you also have access to a private boat ramp down the road and you are a short drive (or paddle) to marinas, restaurants with live bands, wineries, shopping and larger beaches. We have a book & brochures on side table, but for local event/details you can look up things to do in Kent or Cecil Counties, Galena or Chestertown

Where you’ll be

Galena, Maryland, United States

There is a small grocery store “Sassy Market” which is only a few miles away, but I suggest Super Walmart or Food Lion in Middletown, DE for any big shopping as there are many shops, restaurants, movie theatre, etc. (15 mi. away). On Main Street there is Twinny’s (great pancakes) and Pizzeria and Ice Cream Shop across the road. As you continue ahead toward the Marinas there is Kitty Knight House Restaurant & deck (w/ live music) and an another Ice Cream Shop down below. Also, there are Granary Restaurant, Signals Restaurant and Harbor Cafe. There is a Catholic Church and Methodist Church on Main Street. There are always events and public sailings in Chestertown, a quaint college town along the Chester River about 15 mi away with many different quaint eateries and shopping. Chesapeake City also has great restaurants and pubs and is know for The Chesapeake Inn which offers cruises on the river and the Bayard House which has a great food. Also, Galena Fire Dept. has an all-you-can-eat breakfasts almost every other Sunday morning which is terrific. Rock Hall is another fun town a little further away.

We have 5 wonderful adult children and enjoyed most weekends at this river home as they were growing up! Currently, I take pleasure in my volunteer hospice work and being the office manager at church. My favorite things to do are spend time with family and friends, church, river, fire pit and sports.
