About the property

The most relaxing and enjoyable vacation without the pretension.

This Farmhouse was built nearby and lifted onto it's foundation by field workers. The property was once home to Speaker of the House Thomas Hunter Lowe. Jane Lowe Estate Farmhouse has been restored and ready to be shared. You sleep, eat and relax feet from Harris Creek. We can't wait for you to participate in a slice of true relaxation. Rain or shine there are many things to do.


The Farmhouse has all new appliances and the charming setting by the bay. Feel free to fish for perch or rock fish right from the property. The master suite and living room have flat screen tv's with DISH SATELLITE, AND WI-FI. Downtown St. Michael's and all of it's attractions are very close. If you need help with recommendations or things to do feel free to ask. The pool is naturally warm due to the proximity to the water.

We have been visitors and renters for the past few years and fully understand what you expect. This is a special ESTATE and we would be honored to play host!

About Ryan Perlberg

My sister and I purchased these two adjacent properties that were once owned by a single family. We have put our blood, sweat and tears into the restoration and want to share what we consider a special place.

Ryan Perlberg purchased this farmhouse in 2015

Why Ryan Perlberg chose Chesapeake Bay

This property was going to be torn down with a mansion in its place and we didn't love the idea of that. There is rich history and you will never want to leave. One sunset is all it takes.

What makes this farmhouse unique

There is a water view from almost every room. The property was well built and we find ourselves spending much of our time relaxing with family outside on the grounds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great respite away from the bustle of the city. Tranquil setting with amazing views and even more amazing moon lit views by the docks.

There's no better getaway than this lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful home and location! The kitchen was perfect for cooking as a group, and the outdoors can't be beat. We brought our pups along and they had a great time exploring and enjoying the outdoors. Ryan was a wonderful host and answered all our questions promptly and accurately. St. Michael's is so close for a quick day trip but there's really no need to leave the property either because everything is taken care of! We can't wait to return!

Beautiful property, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long Thanksgiving weekend with 6 adult family members. The house is very nicely laid out and the kitchen was great for just hanging out at the large table especially with the fireplace. Water views are outstanding. I would imagine that summer would be great with the gigantic swimming pool. Ryan was very responsive and kindly had a bottle of St Michaels wine and some Maryland themed snacks awaiting us when we arrived.

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect get away, and Ryan was fabulous to work with. Our pups enjoyed it as much as we did! The seclusion and proximity to the water was ideal. The beach access and floating dock made for a really nice place to launch the kayaks that are on the property. The views are fabulous as well! Can't wait to come back in the summer to use the pool!

We are looking forward to coming back soon!

Great place for "family time"

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came from CA to spend a few days with our daughter and family from MA. Our two grandsons (8 & 3) had a great time fishing, crabbing, playing football and running around the large yard. The kitchen was well equipped and we spent a lot of time at the large table eating and playing games. The library is filled with old and interesting books which we all enjoyed. The whole experience was like visiting a museum without the "Do Not Touch" signs!

The property was beautiful and the sunsets spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the home. We caught crabs and fish from the pier. We enjoyed using the kayaks that were provided. We saw many varieties of water fowl and other wildlife. I would suggest getting window coverings for the master bathroom and bedroom.

Amazing farmhouse, rich history, stunning sunsets

  • 4 of 5

We planned our trip to this house with the intention of having solid family time together. And the house certainly does provide all of the space and recreation to make this possible. The pool is stunning. It overlooks the bay, the water is perfectly warm and it is actually huge. Our kids never got sick of the pool. The kitchen is also gorgeous and really makes you want to hunker down and cook and eat together.

The master bedroom is an amazing size with a cozy little guest room right off it. With the windows open, the bay breezes make for perfect napping and sleeping weather.

The house is about 15 minutes from St. Michaels, which felt kind of far if you are interested in food shopping, going out to eat or just getting ice cream. We weren't quite prepared for just how far this house is from any commerce. In retrospect, it was very nice to have the isolation, but we weren't totally prepared for it.

These are the drawbacks of the house: you are really in nature. This is a pro and a con. We rescued so many frogs from the pool and this totally thrilled our kids! There are deer everywhere and the crickets sound incredible. But there are ants in the kitchen and bathrooms and it was hard to ever fully relax in either space. We kept all of our food in the refrigerator to protect it. The bathrooms also need updating. For the price of the rental, there is not a lot of luxury outside of the land itself. The bathrooms, having some luxury, would change the experience a lot.

Furthermore, we had no idea that you couldn't swim in the Chesapeake Bay. Perhaps this is common knowledge, but we didn't know it and we were left with only the pool to swim in. The pool, like I said, is delicious. But, the jellyfish and crabs make the bay unusable for swimmers. It was wonderful to kayak, but falling out of the kayak led to a crab bite.

All this said, if you are into s'mores, stunning surroundings and sunsets, this place will reward you in spades!
