A lovely relaxing cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Shipwright Cottage. The house is cozy and inviting. The owner was very easy to work with and went beyond expectations. We enjoyed using the kayaks and explored many of the local recommendations provided, including a sail on the Selina II. Highly recommend!

Quiet cottage, fully upgraded, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous three nights at the cottage. It was clean and well stocked. Bed was comfy and bath towels were soft and thick. Decor was beautiful - would love for my home to look the same way. It was great having access to bikes and kayaks. Just enough off the beaten path to feel like you can really escape but close to town for shopping, meals and sightseeing. Highly recommend. Can’t wait to go back.

Yes please, I’ll have seconds.

Last year’s fall visit to the Shipwright’s Cottage has been followed up with a New Year’s weekend. I will tell you that what makes this cottage specials has not changed, only the weather.

The local wildfowl now visit fallow corn fields as hawks squawk overhead. Sika dear are visible at the edges of fields of cover crops and a skim of ice, thicker at water’s edge is visible. Winter has come to Wittman but the restaurants are busy, the town of Saint Michael’s sparkles in the evening and the Shipwright’s Cottage continues to be wonderful spot to spend some downtime. Too bad the football games were not better.

Well appointed, functional and just central enough - including water views on two sides – to be a memorable hideaway any time of year. The representations made are reliable as the communications from the owner. If you visit enough of these kinds of places, you will realize how valuable those two items are.

Great Location for Us

  • 4 of 5

This quaint cottage is just perfect for the two of us. It provided a launch pad for biking, kayaking, and long walks. Close to historic St Michael's and all its attractions. Plan to come back next year.

Simply Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I selected this property because of the consistent 5-star reviews and comments. They were correct; it is a charming, beautifully decorated, and fully equipped place to relax. Loved the peace and quiet and views of the water. When our daughter, who has a small second home in St.Michaels, came to see our accommodations at the Shipwright Cottage, she was equally dazzled and immediately took a couple of cards saying this would be a perfect place to put up other guests visiting them. It's only an easy 10 minute drive to St. Michaels. Highly recommend this property.
