Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay nights


About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12-18

This property is unique in its location and on-site amenities. It is quiet, quaint and charming, teeming with all the features of the Chesapeake Bay region, yet close to town. You may awake to the sound of Canada geese, a bobwhite quail, whitetail deer or wild turkey. During your stay you will surely spot a bald eagle and cottontail rabbits by the dozen. If you come in June, July or August, you can catch the delicious blue crab right off your private dock and steam them for dinner that night.

Catch whiteperch off the dock, relax with a book in the hammock, take a bike ride down the lane (bikes provided) or simply hike around the 50 acre compound and enjoy the quiet. This is not the Hyatt....this is Chesapeake Bay country at its finest. Enjoy!

The property is ideally located for Golfers, fisherman and hunters. Three excellent courses are within a half hour, two within a 15 minute drive. Fishing is onsite and the Bay a half hour by boat. The Swan's Nest is in the heart of some of the best waterfowl hunting on the east coast. Canada Geese abound on the property. We would be happy to arrange guides and hunting/fishing parties on request.

Gorgeous Property, Great House for Groups!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at the Swan's Nest and it was even more incredible than the first. Absolutely beautiful property, great activities, great house with a huge back porch perfect for rainy days, it was all more than we could have hoped for, especially at this price. We spent a 3 day weekend with a group of friends enjoying all the property had to offer. The owner was so friendly and helpful. He met us the day we checked in and gave us a great tour, answered all of our questions, provided contact information, and even included a welcome gift on the table, so thoughtful. The water was incredible, we all really enjoyed the dock, and nights at the campfire overlooking the water reminded me why I love Maryland. Hope you have the chance to enjoy this incredible property.

The minute we pulled up to the house, we knew we chose the right anniversary get-away. Hap couldn't have been a better host - greeting us with a bottle of wine and great information about the area and the property. We fished (catching loads of fish), walked, and enjoyed the peace and beauty of the area. What a wonderful host and a wonderful property. The sunsets can't be beat. We will definitely send our friends to the Swan's Nest and definitely be back. Thank you Hap & Christine for sharing your welcoming home.
