Relax and unwind at the Chalet on Blue Heron Farm, a waterfront rustic retreat on the upper reaches of the Chester River. Tucked away on a 126 acre fourth-generation organic farm, the River Chalet is a peaceful and private getaway situated just 15 minutes from historic Chestertown. This recently restored 3-bedroom, 2 bath home features a giant wrap-around deck overlooking the river and floor-to-ceiling windows with serene waterfront views.

The space
This chalet-style house was built in 1976, and we’ve recently updated the kitchen, bedrooms and bath.

The main entrance to the house leads into a full-size kitchen with stainless steel dishwasher, electric stove/oven, fridge, filtered drinking water, and cookware. Whether making a pot of coffee or cooking a feast, the kitchen is complete with everything you need to feel right at home.

Around the corner from the kitchen is the downstairs bedroom and bath. The bedroom includes a queen sized bed, closet, and a dresser. The downstairs bathroom is a compact design with a shower and small vanity. All linens and towels are included with the house.

The first level also features the great room- an open concept space with floor-to-ceiling windows featuring a living room and dining area overlooking the Chester River. The living room is set up as a cozy gathering space to hang out with your loved ones. The space includes a couch, futon, two chairs, television (with Roku), puzzles, and books. Across the room is the dining area with a large farmhouse table that seats up to 8.

The great room leads to an open staircase that takes you to the second level. This area includes two bedrooms and a full bath. The first bedroom includes a queen-sized bed, closet, dresser, and balcony. The second bedroom includes two extra-long twin beds, a closet, dresser, and balcony. The two rooms share the upstairs bathroom with a large vanity, shower, and bathtub.

The great room also opens up to a wrap-around deck complete with a grill and outdoor seating. This is the spot to catch world-class sunsets!

Just a short walk down the path in front of the house leads to a private dock with kayaks available for exploring this beautiful part of the river. The dock can also accommodate shallow-draft boats.

The farm has miles of gorgeous trails for you to enjoy in the spring, summer, and early fall (In the late fall and winter, certain trail are closed for hunting season.).

Finally, the River Chalet is just a 1/4 mile from the home where my wife and I live with our 3 kids. We are on-call if you need us, but otherwise offer total privacy during your stay.

Where you’ll be

Chestertown, Maryland, United States

Wildlife everywhere. The house is 1.3 miles down a dirt road that runs along fields and woods. This is a great spot for those who want to be in the woods with a view of the river and away from it all. We are 9 miles from historic Chestertown MD. There are several miles of hiking trails on the farm and access to the Chester River
