Oyster Cottage is in the heart of what makes Rock Hall such a great holiday destination and for Chesapeake ambience. Within a short walk you can enjoy a coffee and pastry at Java Rock cafe, an ice cream at Durdings and listen to great music at the Mainstay. If you are interested in Chesapeake seafood you will find a crab cake or oysters within walking distance of Oyster cottage or a short drive to the waterfront. Kayakers, bikers and sailors will be right at home.
Oyster Cottage is surprisingly spacious. We have 2 bedrooms upstairs, both with queen sized beds and one with an extra twin bed. We have a fold out sofa downstairs that can accomodate 2 additional people. The single bathroom is on the ground floor. During restoration we located antique doors and hardware and made an effort to be consistent with historical detail by matching existing molding and baseboard. The kitchen and bathroom are modern but blend well with historic features of the house. The kitchen has bar seating for 2 but can accommodate 2 more on the ends. We have a table that can seat 4 and an outside table and umbrella for 4. For a morning coffee there is a table for two in the garden along side the house. Off the kitchen there is a utility room with a washer-drier and an extra refrigerator for the watermelon and summer libations.
Guests have access to the entire house except for a few closets where we store cleaning supplies.
Diane the property manager is located nearby and responds quickly to any questions or concerns you have.
Oyster cottage is located on the parade route so you can enjoy the 4th of July from our brick garden path. Many of the major Rock Hall events including Pirates and Wenches weekend and the Fall Fest are just a short walk from our front door.
There are a number of small specialty shops that can make a delightful afternoon of shopping--yep you can buy a T-shirt! Get some crabs and use one of the gazebos on the beach at Ferry Park-- afterwards you can rinse off your hands in the Chesapeake bay, stroll the beach and enjoy an amazing Rock Hall sunset.
- We can accomodate one well behaved dog but charge and additional $50 cleaning fee in addition to the standard $75 fee. Sorry no cats due to allergies.
