About the property

Fishing Cove is a fully-furnished eight-bedroom six-bath waterfront family-friendly house tucked away in a lush pine forest. Our waterfront vacation home is on a very private cove with 2 acres of waterfront property and a large private dock and 3 boat slips. Easy access by car, or by boat from the Chesapeake Bay.

Drink your morning coffee on our 12' x 72' deck watching the birds and deer. Fish and crab from our pier. Swim in our pool. Our large welcoming house has everything you need for a relaxed vacation on the Eastern Shore, including accessibility features - electric wheelchair lift, ramps and wide main floor doors.

Located on Fishing Creek off the Little Choptank 9 miles from Cambridge, Maryland, we are near Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, and our shoreline attracts an amazing variety of waterfowl. We have great bicycling roads: Flat and scenic, so bring your bikes. Bring your canoe and explore the shoreline. The house is wonderful any time of the year!

Sorry, we cannot accommodate weddings, wedding receptions or large group events.

About Virginia Rubsam

With 3 married children and five grandchildren we added a second floor to Fishing Cove to accommodate all of us as well as our friends. When our family isn't using Fishing Cove we offer it to other families so they can enjoy it as much as we do!

Virginia Rubsam purchased this house in 1999

Why Virginia Rubsam chose Cambridge

We bought this house because of its PERFECT location. It is only 60 miles from Annapolis so getting there is easy, going from the hustle of city life to perfect peace in an hour's drive. It started out as a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house that we enlarged and improved to fit the needs of our own large extended family. Then we decided to offer it to other large families for their vacations so they can enjoy it too!

What makes this house unique

We have a large house with lots of space for multi-generational family get-togethers. There's something to do for everyone.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed iur stay at the Fishing Cove as well as visiting Layton's Chance Winery and fun things in St. Michaels. The swimming pool was fine in terms of cleanliness and water temp.

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a very pleasant stay at Fishing Cove. Together with extended family members we brought in New Years here. The entire place was very accommodating and comfortable. We are already planning to go there for summer break, if it is available.

Virginia is an excellent host!!

This is a wonderful, roomy, comfortable place, perfect for our large extended family with active lit

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Fishing Cove. It is perfect for large families. Tons of space and equipment for games and activities, even during this frigid weather.

A highlight of our week was a Murder Mystery Dinner. I was the chef and turned out to be the Murderer.

Lots of fun. Lots of space. And lots of Family Bonding Time.

Quiet cove, comfy, well equipped house.

  • 5 of 5

Generous size rooms with lots of natural light. Bathrooms are spacious and well equipped. There is a open area on the second floor for cozy gatherings or a nice place to read away from the crowd. The dining rooms seats 10 comfortable, we were fine with our group of 12 sitting around the table. The kitchen is large and well stocked with plenty of pots and pans, plates and utensils. There are essential 4 separate sleeping wings, so the big snorers in our group kept to one of the wings and the rest of us slept undisturbed. The house is well maintained and the beds are comfortable.

Perfect venue for our church men's weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at this excellent property and we hope to be back many more times. It accommodated 12 of us handily, all in separate beds, and it was great to have 6 full bathrooms. The living and dining areas served us well for our meetings and meals (including some nice new furniture), and though the pool was closed for the winter the deck and yard were still great for outdoor activities. The property gave us a great sense of privacy, yet with a lot of open space.

Ginger, the owner, was very accommodating and easy to work with. And yes, we found the place clean and neat, and very welcoming. Bottom line: great for our purposes and certainly would be great for any large family or mixed group.

Dream House for the entire extended family

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for our large multi-generational family reunion. It is clean and well-maintained with lots of bedrooms and bathrooms. Heat and air all worked fine. Very comfortable. Large dining area could seat 12 - 14 of us, and the other table off the kitchen seats 6 - 8. The kitchen has 2 refrigerators and is easy for more than one cook to work in at the same time. The owner includes many things with the rental - sheets, towels, fully equipped kitchen, etc. All we had to do was show up! The upstairs bonus gathering area provided a place for the kids to play video games, etc. while the adults could mingle in the downstairs living room. We weren't crowded.. The kids fished from the pier and played with the small rowboats. We caught (and ate) lots of crabs from the pier. The setting can't be beat - private location with wonderful water views, a pool and dock. It is close to Cambridge for easy shopping and restaurants, and to Blackwater Wildlife Refuge for biking and bird watching. There are two good golf courses nearby - one only 5 miles away We hope to return! . Owner is responsive and a delight to deal with..

The Cambridge location is the heart of the Chesapeake Bay area and is a convenient drive from New York, Philadelphia, Ohio and Florida. Families gather from these and other areas to enjoy everything the Bay has to offer - the wildlife, the ocean and all the historical sites. There are also great restaurants, festivals, 2 world-class waterfront golf courses, tennis and boating of all types. Fishing, Crabbing and boating couldn't be better. Just tie up at our dock and take advantage of it all.

Other Activities: Blackwater Wildlife Refuge

Golf: The River Marsh Golf Club at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Resort provides golfers a secluded haven to enjoy golf as it's meant to be played -- with classic styling, wide fairways, sculpted bunkers, generous greens and tees to reward and challenge all levels of players. The 17th hole is a par 3 that stretches 200 yards from the tips. Awaiting the bold player is a dramatic carry over Shoal Creek to a large putting surface guarded by three artfully crafted bunkers. The green is backdropped by majestic trees and a stunning vista of the broad Choptank River that flows into Chesapeake Bay.

Clearview at Horn Point's Golf Course is challenging and fun for any level player. You'll enjoy remarkable views of the beautiful Choptank River from several holes on the course. This par 72/73 course plays to just over 6,450 yards from the back tees. With ponds, traps, tree-lined fairways, and firm fast greens, solid ball striking and course management is a must.
