Feel yourself unwind as soon as you pull in the drive and take in the splendid water views from the decks of this private home on the North East River. Listen as the blue herons call while fishing in the shallows, and watch the bald eagles and ospreys circle in search of prey. The river's mood changes by minute.
We are just 5 miles off Perryville's I-95 exit and 7 miles from North East's exit 100, but far removed from the typical motel rooms just off the interstate. You can rent the full 5-bedroom house, the 3-bedroom upstairs, the 2-bedrooms downstairs, or just a single bedroom. The property sits between Seneca and Carpenters Points, on the end lot of a small quiet community. The river and tidal creek provide seclusion on three sides. Eagles, blue herons, ospreys, wood ducks, mallards, river turtles, beavers, deer and foxes are abundant. We also have 19 undeveloped acres of woods and marsh adjacent to the property for exploring.
Boaters anchor in the shallows just up the beach. We have a dinghy, kayak and Sunfish available for your use in season. Our mooring can accomodate boats up to 30'. The deep waters of the upper Chespeake are minutes away at Turkey Point, and the Susquehanna Flats are just around the tip of Carpenters Point.
