Enjoy the Eastern Shore of Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay in a relaxing and peaceful way. The Deal Island Bay Cottage on Maryland's Eastern Shore situated on 1.31 acres is a place where you can unwind from the daily stresses of the beltway life. Watch the sunrise every morning as you eat breakfast from the cozy dining room while a symphony of bird sounds provide the music and entertainment. During the day, bring a bay kayak and float out into beautiful Tangier Sound with your friends. Walk the island or explore the Wildlife Management Area nearby. At dusk, take a walk to the beach on the other side of the bridge which is only 1 block away and watch the sun set into the bay as if you were sitting in Key West, Florida, but without the crowds.
Boat ramp and marina nearby for docking your boat. Inquire for number.
