See for miles and miles at Bonnie Breeze
This waterfront home is the perfect escape for a family retreat. Tucked between Easton, Maryland and the historic waterfront village of St. Michael’s, this private, Nantucket-style compound is just as stunning on the inside as its horizon views of the Chesapeake Bay are on the outside. Stroll out to your private dock and enjoy the calm waters of the river, unwind by the private pool and patio, or hit the courts for a game of tennis or basketball.
Take a step back in time at Thornton Farm
Dream of living like a modern-day Scarlett O’Hara? This 6,000 sq. ft. estate is everything you could ever dream a modern farm to be. Thornton Farm, built in 1815, combines the finest finishes from years past and modern touches from today. The 300+ acres of farmland, walking paths, Merlot grape vineyard, swimming pool, and bass fishing pond make this a lux escape with no shortage of outdoor adventure.
Go for an adventure at Hudson Manor
Unplug and unwind in this lux waterfront estate. Hudson Manor is a blissful escape from city life, without sacrificing any of your modern amenities. Hop on a boat from your private dock, kick back poolside in an Adirondack chair, or perfect your favorite recipe in the top chef-quality kitchen and outdoor fire pit. Enjoy your views of the Choptank, kayak or canoe down the river, or hit the private shore for a game of beach volleyball.
Make the most of the great outdoors at Blue Gates
When you have a waterfront pool, outdoor bar, and a personal dock + boathouse on the Tred Avon River, it’s tough to choose which outdoor activity you want to do first. Luckily, a week stay at Blue Gates might be just long enough to fit in all your favorites. This Talbot County oasis strikes the perfect balance of soothing seclusion and outdoor adventure on the Eastern Shore.
