Majestic Eastern Shore Getaway
My wife Nancy and I are still “coming down” from our visit to Easton at the home of Laura and Greg Carney. They were extraordinarily thoughtful to let us to switch our original June dates to the fall due to the Covid pandemic. The weather was near-perfect, allowing us to enjoy the change of seasons, along with the diminished crowds on the Eastern Shore following Labor Day. The Carney’s home is a perfect blend of antiques and casual furnishings, and we found the setting ideal for enjoying quiet family time with our son, daughter-in-law and young grandson. The indoor spaces were roomy yet cozy and the outdoor setting was eye-popping. We could easily have included an additional six people in our party without being on top of one another. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen extremely well-equipped so that we were able to enjoy most of our meals in house. The home is perfectly situated to explore the quaint towns of St. Michael’s and Easton where one can find a vast variety of shops and restaurants. In advance of our visit we read many reviews of the Carney home, all of them overwhelmingly complimentary, and our stay fulfilled our lofty expectations. Greg and Laura work as a team and are exceptional hosts, communicating before and after arrival and ensuring that everything is in perfect order for you and your guests. We had a lovely stay at a uniquely magnificent venue, ensuring a memorable getaway. Peter and Nancy Drake ”
