Five bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home with magnificent water views and lovely yard.
One of the owners, was born in Maryland and spent many of her younger years on and around the Chesapeake Bay. She and her husband bought the Cara Cove house in 1996 and completely renovated it. They love the property and hope renters will enjoy the property as much as they have.
Susan purchased this House in 1996
Why Susan chose North East
Reasons the owners chose this property include access to the water for swimming, water sports, boating, fishing kayaking; the lovely ambiance, beautiful views and quiet, peaceful daily life; the plethora of wildlife; the cute town of North East; the many good restaurants close by (some accessible by boat as well as car); and the proximity to major Northeast Cities
What makes this House unique
Charming waterfront house with fantastic views of the upper Chesapeake bay. Property includes private beach, private dock, private picnic area and lots of space for all kinds of outdoor recreational activities. Included also are two golf chipping greens, a horse shoe game area, a kayak, water floats, a boccie ball game, and a croquet set. The property has patio sitting areas at various locations around the property to enhance our guests ability to enjoy the incredible views. The property is secluded and a great place to enjoy a quiet vacation away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Yet it is only minutes away from some very nice restaurants and shops in the charming town of North East as well as nearby Havre de Grace and Charlestown.

This home is gorgeous!! The owners respond quickly to any questions/concerns you may have.
The view is absolutely stunning. We stayed with a few other couples and it accommodated all of us perfectly with access to the guesthouse. We had two boats so the private dock was convenient. The house was clean and everything was in working order. We had beautiful weather. Great rental property! I highly recommend!
Best rental we’ve ever had
Amazing property - great renter - beautifully furnished - would do it again in a heartbeat! This place should be in a magazine - thanks to those renting for their Q&A communications and just being plain nice people
Elegant, Classy and Tranquil
From the first contact with the owner until we locked the door on our departure, this property, it's owner's Susan and John, along with the management team provided us with a memorable and happy holiday that was beyond expectations!
As beautiful as the pictures are, the drive up to this estate, past the gate and overlooking the water was nothing short of awe inspiring. We were a party of 8, 2 families with adult children, plenty of room for everyone. We took advantage of the gourmet kitchen and dining areas inside and outside of this luxurious home. The views are nothing short of jaw dropping. Simply Beautiful.
We also took advantage of the local water taxi to several restaurants - The Wellwood (inside dining - very good from the sushi, oysters, steak and seafood - something for everyone in our party). On another evening, we also took the taxi to the Nauti-Goose, a little further-which was no problem, the ride and views were awesome. The Nauti-Goose was very casual, not fancy, but again, there was something for everyone. The water taxi picked us up on the dock, made it very convenient for all of us - did not have to worry about driving or parking two cars.
The estate was filled with the finest linens, china and furnishings. We all felt so blessed to have found this gem where there was plenty of room to gather together and spread out when we wanted to. We took the kayak out, rode our bikes, played guitar on the patio, played the baby grand piano inside the home, we fished, roamed about the property, some of us booked a stand up paddle board yoga at Bay Venture - amazing - Heather was great! We learned of a community pool that was open to us on Friday but did not have time to enjoy.
There was also an Osprey Nest nearby - we thought one of the osprey may have been sick but google informed us that osprey sometimes play possum, and sure enough, the bird was up a short time after - incredible.
There is so much to do in town, cute restaurants and shops, a great coffee and doughnut shop, it was called The Chesapeake Bay Doughnut shop-Yummy!!
The owners were always quick to respond with any questions we had as well as the Megan, the property manager. They were very helpful and had an attention to detail that did not go unnoticed.
We love to stay at B&B's and have traveled parts of the US and Europe but had never had such a special experience as staying here. This was truly a Top-Class experience, THANKS so very much!
We had a wonderful experience renting this property. It was a beautiful house with comfortable surroundings. Being right on the Chesapeake was awesome. The grounds were well maintained and flowers and shrubs were very pretty. The accommodation for us was perfect. I would strongly recommend this property for family reunions and weddings. The veranda facing the water was so inviting. Even though it was 90 plus degrees it was so comfortable. Rocking chairs were provided and a table outside for dining. It was absolutely perfect
Perfect home away from home!
We have rented many VRBO properties over the years. Some owners rent out a house... other owners have a home that they love and wish to share with others. Such is this North East MD property.
We rented this property as a home base for our daughter's wedding at Chesapeake Inn. There were nine of us. The home offers plenty of personal space for everyone, yet multiple spacious rooms for guests to gather. By far, our favorite "room" was the large patio facing the fabulous water view. Don't forget to have your morning coffee on the patio. Nature will not fail to put on a show.
There is nearby shopping to get anything you might need during your stay. North East offers fun browsing and restaurants worth visiting. Mostly, we just felt at home and didn't want to leave. It was truly a perfect place to reconnect with family and friends.
Should you have any issues while visiting here, don't fret. The owners are quick to respond... no problem.
Thank you, John and Susan, for sharing your home with our family. We made many memories and just might be back to make more!
Thank you for the lovely review. We hope you decide to come back again someday. After you shared some pictures of your family, it felt like we had made some new friends. You are welcome to return anytime.
