About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 4

Cute, cozy, and cheery...this little ranch house on a quiet street in the quaint fishing village of Wenona, a small community on the southern tip of Deal Island where crabbing and oystering are a way of life is a perfect and peaceful vacation retreat. Eventhough water view is from just one window in the house, what this does mean is that you are very close to water...just minutes from a public boat ramp! This little house lives large and pleasant with its newly remodeled kitchen offering plenty of counter space, lots of big windows and bright light, and fresh paint throughout. We have so enjoyed this home and hope you will too with your next visit to Deal Island.

this was our second time to stay in this house. It is perfect! Clean, comfy, and has everything you need! Go down to the end of the road, You can walk, and get fresh, delicious, huge crabs from Mr. Terry Daniels or Mr. Andrew Benton.

We kayaked, fished, ate fish and crabs and relaxed!! Beautiful location, wonderful people, perfect house!

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a quiet trip to an island steeping in history! Much better than the touristy Ocean City....worth the drive to see the horses.

It was like staying with a friend! Thank you so much!

Only bummer was having to take the sicker to the dump and then back to the house on our way home.....but other than that exactly the mothers day retreat for my mom and daughter! XO

Easy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful little house away from it all. Truly felt like home and came equipped with everything you needed. Deal Island is a very friendly, laid back, slowed down vacation spot and this house matches that style exactly. While there may not be frills (no wifi or cable, which is stated before you rent) it has everything you would need for a coastal vacation. Beach chairs, extra toilet paper, towels and linens, books and dvds, we didn't have to bring anything but clothing, food and ourselves. I would recommend this house to anyone and would love to return.

Deal Island is a quiet, friendly fishing community in the heart of "crabbing country"; do not be surprised that your neighbors will be professional watermen some of which offer chartered fishing tours that leave from Deal Island making fishing and boating perhaps the most popular draws to the area. There is a small public beach area (on right as soon as you cross the bridge onto D.I.) that is great for swimming, surf fishing, and finding sea glass and shells. There are multiple areas of public lands in wildlife management areas on or near D.I. which is great for hikers, birders, kayakers, as well as hunters. Since the island is so flat and home to some very courteous drivers, biking is also very enjoyable here on D.I. The annual Skipjack Races are held every Labor Day weekend, and is a wonderful event to capture the local culture and flavor of the island.
