The Space

Tilghman Island is located on the Chesapeake Bay on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

My partner Tom and I have owned our home in Tilghman Island for 10 years. It is a very quiet and relaxing hide-a-way. Sailing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, biking, and fishing are great activities.

We are half a block away from Dogwood Harbor where you can launch your boat or kayak. Home to watermens' crab, clam and oyster boats and classic skipjacks.

There are great outdoor restaurants, and if you like to cook—locally caught fresh fish markets with soft shell crabs, hard shell crabs, rockfish and oysters; and farmers markets.

Our Tilghman Island cottage is over 100 years old and is decorated with European antiques, contemporary furnishings, art and books.

Approximately 1 hour from Washington, DC and Baltimore. 2 1/2 hours from Philadelphia.

20 minutes to St. Michael's dining and shopping.

  • My experience with the Tilghman Island House was exactly what I had hoped for. In fact, I kind of felt like it was fate that I ended up there (after trying for three other locations that were either booked or that I had to cancel). Anita and Tom's house was extremely comfortable for me. I kept thinking it was the type of house I would have bought (have actually bought in the past, although not on an island). The owners are clearly creative --you can tell by their decorating style. Vintage visual vignettes and wonderful fabrics are everywhere. Anita was great in terms of communication and suggestions for my stay. I went by myself for the solitude of a retreat for three nights to work on a book I am writing. It was the perfect atmosphere. There were no distractions unless I wanted to seek them out. I did attend the wine tasting hour and met a few locals at the Country Store. I brought my bike and had some scenic rides around the island. There is very little traffic, and drivers nicely give you space if you are biking or jogging (not like in D.C.). One man even stopped to make sure I didn't have a flat tire (I was just stopped to take a photo of the picturesque church and cemetery). If you do bring a bike, ride out to Bar Neck (left at the church when heading south). The house has everything you need for cooking if you want to stay in. The Country Store nearby has lots of options as well for hot meals to-go and other groceries. I drove into St. Michael's for lunch one day (good pizza at Ava's). There are a few restaurant options on the island, but open hours are hit or miss (and the Tilghman Island Inn was under renovation when I was there, so be sure to call ahead if you want to dine there). Because I could get only limited internet through my cell phone, it was really liberating not to be connected all the time. If you want to get away by yourself or with someone close to you, you should rent this place (and there's room enough for a small family as well). As a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe there, and it was so much nicer to have an entire house than to stay in a hotel room. A bit of picturesque solitude awaits you on Tilghman Island! I hope I can come back again either later this year or next spring. Who needs their own vacation home when a place this great is so easy to book?
