My wife and I loved this trip with three young kids! The sandy beach was absolutely perfect for the kids to explore for crabs and build sandcastles. The pool, though somewhat small, was plenty for a post-beach hour of swimming and fun. A few points:

1. Tranquility: I did not see or hear another human being outside my family besides the pizza delivery guy for a week. No loud parties, no annoying neighbors, literally nothing except for my family and the water.

2. Fishing. I love it. My wife and I are freshwater anglers in the most amateur sense and were thinking this would be brackish tending toward freshwater, but it’s actually brackish tending toward saltwater. There are lots of crabs off the dock. The fishing is mostly white perch, but there are large striped bass, for tidal waters, in the hours around high tide. Two of them snapped my line, I would say they were 10+ pounders, but I had fun fighting the smaller ones I reeled in. To catch white perch all day, use smaller shiny spinners or small shiny cranks.

3. Time: despite the obvious difficulties of vacationing with young children, the time just seemed to fly at Cedar Point. Take a nap in the recliner, make s’mores in the fire pit, drift in the pool, check out the wildlife from the dock, watch a movie on the couch, go fishing, sleep in the comfortable bed, take a hot shower, enjoy life if only for a short time. Cedar Point will drift away faster than you expect.

Overall, amazing. If you want peace and tranquility, this is it. If you figure out a way to slow down time, let me know.

In my opinion this is the perfect place to stay on the eastern shore. During our stay it was rainy and sunny. On the rainy days we lit a fire in the amazing oversized fireplace inside and played games and cooked. The inside design of the house is perfect for this type of fellowship. On the other days, we caught sunrises, sunsets, fish and crabs! I enjoyed reading on the beach while others kayaked and fished. The fire pit was perfect for conversation and s'mores.

Would love to stay here every year, twice a year!

Peaceful vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well maintained. Great little beach for young ones to play in the sand and wade in the water. We caught fish and crabs off the dock every day. The pool is an added bonus. Lots of lawn space for running around and playing too. Beautiful sunsets! Would highly recommend.

Great week on the Chesapeake

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week on the water. Four of us and our dog. We used the pool every day. The dog was in the Chesapeake every day. We had only 10 minutes of light rain the whole week -- couldn't have been better. Fishing and crabbing from the dock. No giant fish - but fun and relaxing. Bald eagles were flying overhead! Grilling and campfires every night. Flying kites in the large yard. Kayaking and canoeing every day. Long bike rides to Cambridge. We planned our vacation somewhat late and spontaneously. Brian was very flexible and accommodating enabling our vacation to happen. He communicated almost immediately to my emails - making the whole process quite smooth. The house was set up perfectly. We'll remember this fondly for a long time.

Still smiling - possibly our best shore vacation, EVER

  • 5 of 5

We had THE. BEST. VACATION. EVER at Cedar Point and I can’t thank Brian and family enough for the chance to experience the amazing people, seafood, and life of Church creek. We vacation on the shore regularly, but this one was special. So relaxing, so friendly, and a house so perfectly set up to do what you need to do on vacation, and that is RELAX. There were so many incredible experiences in one week that I can’t name them all, but I will try to - and include some suggestions for anyone else staying there, as follows:

- Crabbing - yes, yes, yes! So easy and so much fun - crab from the dock and enjoy the fruits of your labor that same day

- On the water - the kids swam in Church Creek EVERY DAY. No jellies, amazingly enough. They also kayaked (we brought some little sit-on-tops) and I have a SUP that I paddled around - if you haven’t tried SUP, it’s very relaxing. Unless kids are with you, then it’s less so

- In the water. The kids spent all day in swimsuits. They were either on the creek, in the creek, or in the pool - so lovely

- Emily’s - we shopped there almost every day. GREAT suggestion to try it - super fresh farm food - and the bacon. Mmmm, the bacon. Oh, and the honey. And the corn. Mmmm, mmm.

- Soft and Salty - Jo Ann down at Ragged Point!!! - the BEST crab cakes in the area - AND SHE HAS SMITH ISLAND CAKE!!

- Jet-skis! We rented from Blackwater at the Hyatt - $65 for 30 mins, but worth it to tick it off the bucket list. vroom, vroom

- Fishing - the highlight of the week was going out on the Bay for an afternoon/evening of tubing and fishing. We all had an incredible time - caught 4 rockfish which we ate the next evening with Jo Ann’s crab cakes and Emily’s corn. It was a feast fit for a king. Combined with RAR beer (from Cambridge - great microbrewery). Also awesome.

- Fine dining - we ate at Bistro Poplar on Sunday when they do tapas - amazing tapas, perfect for a nice dinner out - would highly recommend it

We love the house, the location, and the people of that area. We had a flat tire while driving around and everyone stopped to see if we were ok. Then we went to the garage in Cambridge where they wouldn’t take any money for detecting a small hole but realizing that the tire was mush. We were there 45 mins - no fee. And they told us about Smith Island cake. Talk about good people.
