The house was beautiful with water views. It was perfect for my stay. The host was warm and welcoming, made me feel comfortable and made sure I had everything I needed (linens, towels, etc). I highly recomend.
We had a wonderful stay, Dimitri was very hospitable and welcoming. He is not around much, so it felt like we had the whole house to ourselves. The views are wonderful, and it it weren't April - I am sure we'd enjoy swimming as well.
Dimitri has a beautiful house right on the water. The descriptions and reviews were accurate and Dimitri went out of his way to be helpful. It's quiet and, in fact, when I was there I was the only guest. One day when I had a little extra time, I made coffee and sat on the deck by the water for a few hours - it was a rather unique experience that made the trip memorable. I really enjoyed staying there.
Dimitri was a great communicator about how to get into the house and where to find our room. This is perfect for a getaway from DC and next time we'd love to rent two rooms and come with friends. Make sure to visit the Choptank River State Park Fishing Pier, which has a great trail. We also ate downtown at the Hidden Gem (yum!) and wanted to go to Pizza Co. but it was closed (Monday).
We got in just an hour or so before sunset and had time to cook dinner before sitting on the back deck and soaking in the gorgeous views. It was great having the kitchen so we could prepare our breakfast and dinners. The home is very comfortable and Dimitri very welcoming!
Dimitri was the perfect host. We felt that the home was our own. We enjoyed breakfasts overlooking the river, and evenings on the deck watching the marvelous sunsets. Every morning we were amused by what seemed to be a pet heron (with an injured left leg). During the days we toured several of the interesting attractions in the area.
Dmitri and his family are very welcoming and hospitable. They had the proper balance between engaging their guests in conversation and knowing when to give them privacy to relax or enjoy the amenities of the space.
Speaking of the space, it is absolutely beautiful! There is a porch for enjoying outside meals while watching the water from a comfortable distance. Across the yard is a gazebo which provides shade and a cool breeze during an eastern shore summer day. Beyond the gazebo is dock with two benches where one can sit and watch the Choptank River flow by.
Dmitri was nice enough to let us borrow his bikes so my wife and I could go across the highway to a state beach where we swam for several hours. After that, we rode home and swam in the river from Dmitri's private beach. The house is conveniently located to kayak rentals, Blackwater Wildlife Refuge, St. Michaels, and Easton. My wife and I will gladly return for another romantic getaway!
