My home is in a quaint little working watermans villiage. History has forgotten these simple folks who still make their living catching crabs & oysters. 2 miles away is a small marina with a boat lauch ramp and tiny restaurant with pretty good food & music on Sat nite. 3 miles away is the Fairmount Wildlife Management Area, good for seeing Bald Eagles, Osprey, Great Blue Heron, etc. Only 45 minutes from Chincoteauge and the Assateauge Wild Ponies. Great fishing, canoing, kayaking, swiming, biking (bring your own gear)
No public transit. Plenty of parking. Salisbury airport 30 min, rent a car or take a taxi

An amazingly authentic spot with family run soft shelling crabbing happening at neighbors. More quiet, bird watching and scenic beauty than could imagine. Would love to relax, read a book and enjoy quiet for days!
The Windrush Cottage was wonderful. My wife and I enjoyed the solitude and our host could not have been nicer. We were able to go for a long bike ride on the country roads, had blue crab delivered to our front porch and picked fresh asparagus in the backyard! The sunrises and sunsets were beautiful.
About the Host, Iris
The owner loves to sail, travel, wine & food, movies, photography, architecture, art. Her home is a 100 year old watermans house that has been renovated into a comfy cottage environment filled with art, books, movies and beautiful views. Sunrises and sunsets here are spectacular. The area is great for bird watching, kyaking, bike riding, fishing, and taking long walks. She likes to cook so there is a spice rack you are welcome to use and an outside gas grill, too.
