The space
Cozy, rustic retreat on pastoral horse farm furnished with eclectic furniture and local art. Bring your basketball—we have a new half court in the backyard. (Please keep the gate closed at all times—we have horses). If you like to grill, bring it on, we provide coals but please clean the grill after each use with Scotch-brite pads, water and simple soap provided. We also can arrange a campfire fire pit if you let us know in advance.
We have WiFi but please do not expect lightning speed-it is DSL.
Please note that the Eastern Shore is full of nature, including, dear, wild turkey, birds and the food source for birds—bugs. We try our best to keep the bugs out of the cottage, so help us by keeping the windows and doors closed to prevent unwanted friends from entering.

Guest access
Walking tails, perfect for a Williams Dressage retreat.
