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.

Springtime family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Extended family gathered from all over the country at this beautiful and immaculate home for the Easter holiday, and it had everything you could possibly need for a week away. The prime location on the bay offered fabulous sunsets which we enjoyed from the screened-in porch, thanks to mild weather, and the new patio and fire-pit on the canal side were perfect for cooler evenings! The elevator was a life-saver for several family members who are unable to climb stairs, and the golf cart allowed them tours of the quiet neighborhood. The kayaks were put to good use on the warmer days by some of our party as well.

The owner Mary has a binder with all the information you would need for every room in the house, trash pick-up, etc., and additional instructions for some of the more complicated things in the house, such as the state-of-the-art washer and dryer, are posted as needed. No guesswork here! And having linens provided and the beds made upon arrival was such a treat; washing and drying the towels prior to leaving was a small task to complete compared to having to supply them ourselves or rent them from a service!

Mary obviously cares a great deal about her lovely home and the comfort of her guests, and she has spared no expense in seeing to this. In return, she asks you to respect her home and take good care of it while you are there, which is a perfectly reasonable request. As a result, this is by far the cleanest, best equipped vacation home I have ever rented, and I would wholeheartedly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Sounds good! If my mind serves me well, the concern about the shower is located in the white binder that gives details about every room in the home to help our guest during their stay. I will however take another look to make sure this is the case. Come again, love to have you back!

Wonderful Early Spring Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this beautiful home. The home is perfectly maintained and the location is lovely along the bay. Very quiet area and a wonderful spot to just relax. Recent upgrades like the canal side patio made the property even more comfortable.

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Mary was wonderful to deal with. From the moment we arrived we absolutely loved the place! Very clean, you name it Mary has it, beautiful views, spacious, new patio with fireplace (can't wait to come back and try it out), lovely community, not far from beach! It was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed at. There were 8 of us for a girls weekend to celebrate my birthday. Everyone loved the place and can't wait to return again!

Perfect for everyone

  • 5 of 5

Amazing vacation with family and our pups included. We are frequent renters on the east coast and found this location to be a perfect place to relax. The home was well furnished and spotless. Everything you needed was there and the owner was very responsive. The evening demanded your attention to the spectacular views and peaceful atmosphere.

This home works for all ages and the elevator is helpful for our bad knee relatives. Many activities for the children too.
