About this listing
Beautiful 1794 cottage captures charm of past with all modern amenities! Just steps from shops, restaurants, and park, cottage backs to North East Creek where heron and fish abound! A perfect getaway as you explore all the Chesapeake has to offer!
With a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, living room and powder room on the first floor, you'll feel right at home! Front and back porches provide great views of the gardens and plenty of space to just relax. Both bedrooms and a shower bath are located on the second floor where the master bedroom has a queen size bed and the guest room has two twin beds (new pictures to follow), accommodating four people. For your convenience, there is cable and internet service, and a laundry upstairs where you can access the original back staircase winding down to the kitchen!
In addition to the front and back porches, the home's lovely gardens can be viewed from a second floor balcony. Guests are also invited to enjoy sitting out on the water - whether to relax, enjoy the wildlife, or fish in the tidal creek. Access is provided from the host's home, only two doors away from the cottage.
Interaction with guests
Your hosts live only two doors away and will be happy to share information about the area's many attractions and restaurants. We also welcome you to share our Adirondack chairs down on the creek!
Other things to note
PARKING: A parking space is designated for guest's use a few steps away at the host's residence. Parking is also available on the street in front of the house.
BATHROOM Access: The shower bath on the second floor can be readily accessed from the laundry room, just behind the Master Bedroom. From the second bedroom, guests may elect to use either the first floor powder room, or access the shower bathroom from the back stairway or by going through the master bedroom.
CHILDREN: We regret that the cottage is unsuitable for children younger than 10 years of age. The 200+ year old wooden floors with brick in the kitchen, no child safety features, the historic nature of the house.... pose multiple safety challenges
PETS: We regret that we cannot accommodate pets.
SMOKING: Not permitted in the house, but guests are welcome to smoke outside on the porch.
CARE: Guests are asked to use racks provided for suitcases and generally respect the restoration efforts so that this 200+ year old home may be enjoyed in years to come!

"Semi" retired, I continue to work part time as a nurse, but enjoy cooking, reading and gardening whenever I have a chance. My husband, Franco, is a retired barber who was born in Italy and speaks fluent Italian. He spent several years meticulously restoring our residence and our lovely guest cottage. Besides maintaining our historic properties, Franco is a cycling enthusiast, beekeeper and gardener. Together, we operated The Inn at North East Creek, a beautiful bed and breakfast, for six years. We look forward to providing the same high quality accommodations in our rental property as we did for our B&B guests. Weather permitting, we both enjoy spending a pleasant evening along the banks of the creek watching the abundant wildlife. We hope our guests will do likewise!
