An upscale Allergy-Friendly home complete with full kitchen, master bed/bath, WIFI, outdoor shower and fireplace. Mad Calf Cottage is perfect for couples, business travelers, cultural enthusiasts, foodies and adventurers. No pets means no dander or pet smells during your vacation.

The space
Mad Calf Cottage is a lovely destination for a romantic getaway. From the plush linens to the soft lighting to the generous master shower for two, this quaint cottage in the heart of Irvington is good for the soul(s).
The photographs tell most of the story, but not all. Here you are a short bike ride away from the iconic Tides Inn resort as well as Irvington’s own vineyard for wine tastings, the Local coffee shop, the Steamboat Era museum, The Vine Wine Bar, Trick Dog Café and many more shops and attractions. Irvington is a historic town on the Chesapeake Bay, home to sea captains and watermen who defined an era that lives on in the architecture and streets and, of course, the menus of the town.
Or you can stay home.
Mad Calf Cottage includes a luxurious Master Bedroom with a King size bed, exquisite linens and down pillows. The en suite bath boasts a double vanity complete with all amenities you would expect to find in an upscale resort. The romantic shower for two is all tile with shower head, rain head and a convenient hand-held shower wand. There is also an outdoor shower for those preferring to be with mother nature.
The over-sized porch is a delightful place for your morning coffee and for your evening sunsets. If your visit is during the cooler months, curl up next to the outdoor fireplace with a glass of wine and turn on some romantic music and, well, see where that goes.
The kitchen is equipped with a full-size fridge, stove, microwave and dishwasher. All dishes, pots and pans and cutlery as well as other small appliances are there for your added convenience.
Bicycles and tennis racquets (tennis courts in town) are complimentary. Kayaks and paddle boards are available for a small fee.

Mad Calf Cottage awaits. Make your reservation today.

Guest access
The dock amenities are behind the main house and are available to our guests. Two kayaks, paddles and life jackets are provided. Stand up paddle boards can be rented locally. Private boat tours/excursions can be arranged with a local Captain and you will be picked up right from our dock! Enjoy a sunset creek cruise, a cruise across the river to Merroir or a specially designed fishing charter.
