Get Away To The Beautiful Wye River

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6 Adults and 11 total

We hope you will visit our family-friendly vacation home on Maryland's Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The home includes a private dock on the magnificent Wye River, with access to all of the many activities it affords, including water skiing, crabbing, and fishing. Situated on a peaceful 3/4 of an acre in a quiet neighborhood with easy access from Baltimore, Washington and Annapolis, this is a wonderful place to get away.

Looking for things to do? Play golf at nearby Queenstown Harbor, shoot some sporting clays at Pintail Point, or shop at the Queenstown Outlets. If you have access to a boat, take a ride down to Wye Island Natural Resource Management area for hiking and swimming. Read a book in the hammock, or sip a cocktail on the dock.

Have a boat? Bring it along and tie up! The low tide water depth is 2.5 feet though, so larger boats are better off anchoring in the deeper cove across the river. Want to go for a boat ride, tube or waterski? Let us know and we can arrange to take you out for some fun on the most gorgeous river on the Bay.

The house sleeps 11, but with only two full bathrooms it is best suited for groups of up to six adults plus children.

About John Hardie

We are a family of five that live in the Washington DC area. We all love the water. John grew up in Maryland and spent much of his youth boating on the Severn River. Karen's family lived on a bayou in Louisiana, where she learned to sail, ski and fish.

John Hardie purchased this house in 2007

Why John Hardie chose Queenstown

Before the children arrived, Karen and John owned a boat and spent many weekends exploring the rivers of the Chesapeake Bay. We always preferred the quiet waters of the Bay's Eastern shore, and without question the Wye River was always our favorite. Its natural beauty is breathtaking, and the smooth water is ideal for skiing and tubing.

When we decided to look for a vacation property, we both knew it had to be on the Wye. We wanted a home that was not fancy or elaborate, but comfortable and clean. And most importantly, we wanted a home with ample room for our friends and our children's friends. We are delighted with our choice.

What makes this house unique

The large shaded back yard provides a wonderful respite from the summer heat.

Our close proximity to Washington, Baltimore and Annapolis make for a easy day trips.

Spring Girl's Weekend

  • 4 of 5

What a terrific find for a girl's weekend. This property was a perfect location between Philly and Washington, DC. The house is well-kept, clean and fully stocked. Despite the rain, we enjoyed sitting on the screened porch taking in the quiet of the river.

Great House in a Great location

  • 5 of 5

First let me say great owners, we had a couple questions that they answered right away, very refreshing. Our stay was excellent, the house is in a great location that offers amenities close by and had a great place to dock our boat located in a quiet cove. The house was clean, was the perfect size, and had a well-stocked kitchen. Thank you for a great weekend!!

Very nice, clean, roomy house.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property, the house was spacious and had everything we needed. Even though the fishing wasn't great due to the heat, we had fun on the river and there were cards and games inside to keep us busy as well. We had a great time!!

The owners are great and were quick to respond to any questions we had. Definitely will consider for future vacations!

Beautiful home in a quiet Cove on the Wye River

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at this home. This is our first choice of all homes on the White River as it sits back in a very private quiet Cove. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The boat dock is wonderful for just relaxing or fishing off of. We spend most of our time on the water and there was abundance of crabs in the river and wonderful fishing on the bay. The amenities of the house leaves you needing to bring nothing with you actually. The homeowners are very prompt to any response or call that you give them. We really appreciated the addition of the propane gas grill this year as we love to grill and my favorite of the house is a screened-in back porch with ceiling fan as you can spend many enjoyable hours out there day or night. We greatly appreciate the homeowners kindness and thoughtfulness that goes into anyone that rents from them.

Quiet escape with great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic house for a getaway! Only an hour and a half from DC, it's just far enough away to feel like you've gone somewhere but not so far that the drive is stressful. Ample private sleeping space - nobody had to use the pull-outs or sleep in one of the three living rooms. Immaculately clean, lots of useful kitchenware that was in great shape. Beautiful dock space and outdoor space for enjoying the river. While peacefully isolated, supermarkets and other staples are a quick drive away. All of us loved River Run and look forward to coming back!

Great River House

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for a large family . My kids loved the rope swing and hammock. I loved looking out the kitchen window at the river as I cooked meals. It was clean, well stocked with beautiful grounds. All questions were handled quickly by owner. We would definetly stay there again.
