What Our Guests are Saying: “This is a can’t miss opportunity on the Eastern Shore. Rather than go into town we opted just to enjoy the day on the property that included a magnificent view, kayaks, art studio, croquet, and many other things for us to enjoy. Michelle and Woody are fantastic hosts that make one and all feel welcome. The accommodations and breakfast outdoors were wonderful. We will be back!” William, Asheville, NC
