About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 4

Waverly Cottage on Cobb Island, Maryland is a beautiful waterfront property offering a grand view of the quiet waters of Neale sound and Wicomico River.

Surrounded by the Potomac River, Wicomico River and Neale Sound this small residential island is the ideal location to enjoy the natural beauty and coastal waterways that grace southern Maryland.

This delightful, newly renovated cottage is fully furnished with two bedrooms, a full bath, spacious eat-in kitchen, family room and enclosed porch creating a relaxing coastal atmosphere. Cottage is equipped with central air conditioning and heat and ceiling fans.

The master bedroom has a large queen bed, while the second bedroom is outfitted with two twin beds. The fully equipped kitchen with new appliances easily accommodates a gathering at the large dining table. The open family room with sofa, loveseat and rattan side chairs for plenty of seating is newly refreshed in a coastal inspired and relaxing style. Cable television and VCR as well as Wifi are provided for family viewing and convenience.

The cottage has an entry/dining deck with an enclosed porch on the front with plenty of seating to view of both the sunrise and sun set over the water. The terraced yard leading to a 100 foot pier and dock offer great opportunities to watch the passing boats while crabbing, fishing and swimming.

Traffic is very light on Cobb Island making it perfect for biking, walking and enjoying the native wildlife (osprey, herons, swans and ducks) adding to the serenity of the peaceful waterside.

A wonderful community playground is just a five minute walk away while the Cobb Island Grocery Store, The Cove Coffee and Wine Bar and Cobb Island Marina/Ledo's Pizza are also located nearby on the island. For dining out and a taste of local seafood try Captain John’s Crab House/Marina, Shymansky’s Restaurant, or Olde McDonald's Country Store that are located just over the bridge.

To satisfy your touring spirit, Cobb Island is within easy driving distances of the museums and monuments of Washington DC, historic Mt. Vernon and Woodlawn Plantations in Virginia, the Civil War Battlefields of Fredericksburg, Virginia and St. Mary's City (early settler's village) in southern Maryland.

Sail and motor boaters can make short day trips to various sites within the Potomac River watershed.

The property is just beautiful. It made my family feel like home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Overlooking the Neale Sound and watching the Sun rise in the morning and set in the evening was breath taking. Fishing off the pier was also great fun. My family really enjoyed it and look forward to rent once a year for our family get togethers to make more beautiful memories.

Beautiful cottage with breathtaking views..

  • 5 of 5

I rented Waverly Cottage along with the sister property, Cranberry Cottage, next door, for a recent family reunion that was taking place nearby. The side-by-side set up was perfect for our needs, which included three generations meandering between the two homes. Waverly Cottage is very nicely appointed with comfortable furnishings and amenities. The grounds are well maintained and the views are spectacular of Neale Sound and the Wicomico River. Even if the weather isn't cooperating, you can still enjoy the water views from the enclosed porch. Teri is a great hostess - she seems to anticipate every need. I will definitely be renting here again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing, waterfront getaway.

Nice, quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home right on the water! It was cozy and comfortable, clean and well kept. We sat out on the dock and enjoyed watching the locals set off fireworks. It's a very quiet, nice community. We bought groceries at the local market, not a huge selection, but sufficient. And we enjoyed dinners at the local restaurants. Captain John's Crab House was our favorite! The visit provided much needed relaxation!
