Title: We had a ball!!!!

Review: I am usually one to pack 10 suit cases to go away for 10 days, but this trip I could have done it in 1. Everything you need is there. Don't bring extra sheets, don't worry about kitchen utinsels, fans or grills. Raven's Nest has it all. Some of our favorite times were spent on the screened in porch on the 2nd floor, it was a great place for the adults to talk and unwind. One morning we had a few showers and the kids stayed out there and played cards. The accomodations are great and the rooms were a perfect fit for us. The one room with the bunks is a little tight if you have 8-12 year olds staying in there with parents. The King size bedrooms have plenty of room and the queen canal is perfect for two people. If you like a balcony for sunbathing, the fifth room is for you, however it has a pull out couch for a bed. The two bedrooms upstairs share a bathroom. The King on the 2nd floor (above the garage) has a private en suite, the canal queen and the bunks share another bathroom. The laundry room was another great feature. Fishing is right at your front door, down the street or on the beach dock at the end of the street, and the sunsets over the bay are fantastic. I would not recommend the beach at the end for swimming, but the pool is clean and lots of fun and has a lifeguard on duty. The State park beach is where we went and it was clean and cheap, pack a lunch and you are set for the day. There are beach chairs and umbrellas in the garage along with the kayak's and life vests. The golf cart was great for me since I have knee trouble. The kids had a great time and were better than the adults, LOL.... AC keeps the house comfortable and I didn't have to worry about using the fans I brought with me. There are two food shopping stores nearby and the prices are not bad. The restaurants leave something to be desired compared with ours in NJ bu we had a great time bar-b-queing and had two entree's every night, kid pleasing and adult fare. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. FYI: We had 8 adults and 5 kids.

Ravens Nest - A delightful Winter retreat

  • 5 of 5

People think about shore homes as places to go during the summer, and they are. But for us, Raven's Nest is the perfect Winter retreat. For the past 18 years my husband and I have spent the last two weeks in December down the shore, always staying at water-front homes. This was our second year at Raven's Nest, and it is one of our favorite locations. You don't have to be outdoors to enjoy what Raven's Nest offers, including the views (from bedrooms as well as the main living area),the comfortable accommodations, We do jigsaw puzzles, watch movies, go to the gym and shop ast malls --even play miniature golf in Ocean City. If you are vacationing in season, Raven's Nest is a wonderful bet, But if your preference is an off season getaway, know that you can have a terrific esperience here any time of year. That the owners are accessible and easy to deal with only adds to the experience.

Beautiful, relaxing vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This home is well-kept, modern and in a quiet place in Fenwick on the bay side. A lovely screened-in porch offers beautiful sunset views unobstructed by any other homes. Relax around the fire pit at night and firewood is provided. We enjoyed the kayaks and crabbing right off the back yard. The owner is very responsive to inquiries. Linens and towels provided is a nice convenience.

Great Time on the Water

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in this beautiful well maintained home the last week in August 2017.

The home is located across the bay and on a canal which made it ideal for evening sunsets, kayaking and crabbing. The backyard fire pit made for evening fun on the water.

Mary was easy to work with and very accommodating.

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

During the first week of Aug. spent the week at Raven's Nest with both our girls and their families. We were twelve and there was ample space for everyone. The views were spectacular from both sides of the house and we spent a good deal of time on the screened in porch. Family enjoyed the kayaking and crabbing as well as time at Ocean Beach which is close by. The house itself was immaculate and very inviting. There was not anything lacking to make it feel like you were at home. My husband and I were very thankful that there was an elevator as we have problems with stairs which made the vacation that much more enjoyable. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to any of our friends. All in all a great vacation.

Great vacation house

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our weeks stay. There were five adults, two teens and an eight year old. Wouldn't want to have any more for its size. Seating at meal time spread to the counter. Viewing a movie together not great. The area is terrific lots to do besides the beach. A great vacation destination. The owner was very nice. Got to chat with her as she was staying in the neighboring home while we were there. Hope she enjoyed the crab soup. We sure had fun catching them.
