I'm thinking the best description of me for your purposes as potential guests appears in the reviews! I'm someone who is just here being incredibly grateful to live in this gorgeous, quiet, nature-filled spot on the Chesapeake Bay; to have this opportunity to share it with others; and to have connected through and [just recently] VRBO with such lovely people. I'm always thrilled to see how much these individuals, couples, and families enjoy staying here, and am hoping that what they have said about me will tell you what you need to know. I am thrilled that my 2 friends and I partnered together to buy the cottage next door to me to extend our my ability to share this really special spot with larger groups (and dogs!) Beyond that.... I will be very happy to answer any questions you may have about my diverse interests and pursuits, as well as the travel destinations I am currently exploring. The most recent was taking our adopted daughter back to see China, her birthland, with a quick stop in Germany on the way home! Finally, I love my OTHER work as a life/author-coach, for which I'm close to being Certified as a facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie, a simple, predictable way to turn our most stressful situations into highly creative solutions and greater peace each time! Very cool.

Very nice waterfront cottage
A group of us (three 60+ ladies) stayed at this cottage for a long weekend. Although the weather wasn't perfect, we really enjoyed the water view! The cottage had everything we needed - lots of paper goods and cooking implements!
All the other reviews talked about how friendly the owner is, but we never saw her/him? There was a lot of activity at the house next door (which we assumed was the owners), which did not bother us at all. The only disconcerting thing was a verbal altercation on Saturday afternoon, lots of loud "cuss" words thrown about and then a lot of police activity next door. Not sure what was going on, but we were a little nervous for a while. It all seemed to end well, so not a reason for us to downgrade our review!
Great place to stay, kayak and play games with the kids.
Relaxing family get-a-way.
We had such a great stay at the cottage. Perfect for a family of 6. We were able to go into DC with ease. We were able to relax outside and enjoy the kayaks. We made new friends with Winnie and "Lion". Shawn was the perfect host and had everything we needed. We will definitely be back!
Very relaxing little getaway
We had a great time at this rental! We wanted a quiet family friendly location on the water, and that is exactly what we got and more. The hostess and her dog were so friendly, the rental was clean and had everything we needed, and the recommendations for meals were spot on! We will definitely be back!
Jessica and others were wonderful guests! They were very gracious and seemed to love everything about being here. They were quiet and kind and extremely responsible--and really took advantage of what we have to offer. Jessica was an excellent communicator before, during and after the stay, and they left the Cottage in really immaculate condition. I would welcome them back in any season, and recommend them highly to other hosts! Shawn Mahshie, Fun Family-Friendly Chesapeake Waterfront Cottage, Deale, MD
A great cottage in a beautiful waterfront setting
We really enjoyed our March weekend getaway to this cozy cottage in a beautiful waterfront setting. Sitting by the water in the adirondack chairs as well as viewing the water through the large cottage windows was quite relaxing. We kept a fire going in the fireplace with the plentiful supplied firewood and cooked our meals in the fully equipped kitchen. In all respects a very enjoyable and relaxing experience!
