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.

Awesome vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 adults stayed at Raven's Nest for 5 nights (April17-22). We found the property to be clean, bright and well equipped with everything we needed for an enjoyable time. I would not hesitate and would certainly look forward to renting this property again in the future! In fact, two members of our group had rented there about a year ago and it was through them that we received the recommendation of this lovely vacation home. Inside and out (lovely patio, grill and fire bowl area) we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Great time for all

  • 5 of 5

Excellent getaway for all ages and pup too. Place is beautifully kept and the addition of the fire pit made for relaxing evenings. Elevator helps with mobility for the "bad knee" crowd or getting groceries to the kitchen. Breathtaking sunsets and sunrises are guaranteed.

Owner's Response: We take great pride in the property and want to make sure when you vacation in our home you feel relaxed. One of the best things about the house is comfort and breathing taking views and sunsets. Lots of people never go back to the ocean side once they stay on the bay and see what it has to offer. Let us know when you'll be in town again! Take Care! Mary

Our stay at the Raven's Nest was all we'd hoped it would be. The house is lovely, spacious, very well equipped and then some. Sunsets were stunning. Close to restaurants, entertainment, beach and water sports. Highly recommend booking for one of the best family gatherings or vacations you could imagine.
