Description

Idlewild a Chesapeake Retreat

Idlewild is the perfect place to gather and rest. Situated on twenty acres of gracious waterfront, surrounded by woods and fields, the property provides a unique view into the natural design and wildlife diversity of the Chesapeake Bay’s fabled Eastern Shore.

This shoreline is home to the osprey, bald eagle, blue crab, and mighty oyster; the buffered waterways attract wildlife in all seasons – shore birds, song birds, eagles and the great heron. The pool and patio are conveniently situated to enjoy the natural splendor.

The home looks at the water and seamlessly integrates modern comforts with historic character, being fully updated with contemporary amenities. The kitchen is equipped for yourself or a guest chef, and includes outdoor charcoal and gas grills. Fresh harvested oysters and crabs can be purchased down the road at P.J. Hambleton’s or gathered straight from the Idlewild shoreline.

The bedrooms are appointed with new bedding and the bathrooms all have walk-in showers, and one master bath adds a vintage soaking tub. The first floor bedroom provides a main-level option with privacy, and two second-floor rear bedrooms with pairs of twin beds are perfect for the younger ones. A bed and bath floorplan is available to help you plan.

A substantial dock fits most boats (MLW ~5’), with swim platform, and crabbing cages. Motorboats, sailboats, kayaks, paddle boards, etc. are for rental in St. Michaels town.

St. Michaels offers several excellent dining options. (Recommendations are provided.) In town, the Inn at Perry Cabin is a world-class hotel, offering spa treatments, Har-Tru tennis courts, golf, yacht charters, plus outstanding food and drink. In addition to dining, the town has a lovely neighborhood walking area, local shopping, plus a brewery, winery, and distillery.

Choose a chair and bask in the sunshine; explore the woods, bike the back roads, dive into the pool; go crabbing, fishing and kayaking; play ping-pong, darts, and music in the reclaimed loft; and gather under the stars at the elevated outdoor deck. Even so, find yourself in natural serenity at Idlewild’s Chesapeake retreat beside St. Michaels on the Eastern Shore.

Reviews

Peaceful Maryland Retreat

We spent a week at this stately and historic home, with friends and family. The property has all the toys a family could use, and a games room for intense ping pong or other games. Folks spent much of their time in and around the swimming pool. Everything is exceedingly well maintained, The kitchen is really well outfitted, It is a classic property in a class of it's own. Brad is a generous and charming host.”

St. Michael’s is Marvelous

Our family had a wonderful and relaxing time at Idlewild. The whome itself is just incredibly elegant and inviting. There is so much to do at this property, including paddle boarding, volleyball, swimming in the river as well as the beautiful pool. There is also ping pong and darts in a separate game room located in another but close building, giving everyone room to spread out. The hosts were amazingly solicitous of our every need. Thank you for allowing us to share your paradise. Cecilia Kempton ”
