Formerly known for shipbuilding and oystering, St. Michaels, Maryland, calls itself “The Heart & Soul of the Chesapeake Bay.” This quaint waterfront town on Maryland’s Eastern Shore is rich with maritime history and lined with red brick sidewalks, colorful boutiques, and Victorian homes dating back to the mid-1600s.
Located two miles from the center of St. Michaels, Baydream Believer is a five-bedroom four-bathroom country cape cod resting on an enviable four acres of waterfront property on a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. Its position on the east bank of the Harris Creek promises easy water access and beautiful views in a relaxing park-like atmosphere.
Baydream Believer offers 5000 square feet of living space (including a screened-in porch) and all the amenities you would expect of an upscale waterfront home, including new hardwood floors, central AC, two laundry facilities, a ping pong table, pool, hot tub, dock, outdoor tree swing, and hammock. As you can tell, it’s all about having the most fun while you’re here!
Inside you will find a stately dining room, a cozy family room with a beautiful fireplace, a media/game room, and an expansive chef’s kitchen. Seeing as Maryland is a seafood mecca, you might as well take advantage of the kitchen’s ample counter space and bring home some fresh, locally caught oysters and crabs for dinner.
Baydream Believer has two master bedroom suites with king-sized beds (one upstairs and one downstairs), three additional guest rooms (two queens and one bunk), and four full bathrooms, ensuring that everyone has their own space.
The home is centered around the spectacular 500 square foot screened-in porch with mahogany wood floors and ceilings and gorgeous water views. It’s the perfect multipurpose room, whether you want shade from the sun, sunset dinners, or a relaxing place for card games.
This home is a waterfront wonderland with plenty to do, from tubing and boating to fishing and crabbing directly from the dock. Relax by the pool or in the hot tub, and bring your favorite book to read under the trees or as you swing in the hammock. Evening activities like stargazing and sunset watching are memorable as a clear night will reveal the Milky Way Galaxy directly above.
The Eastern Shore enjoys a long outdoor season from March through November due to its temperate climate. The summer is most popular for its celebration of crab feasts and Plein-Air art festivals. The fall is famous for the massive influx of migratory waterfowl and associated festivals. Situated in a quaint historical locale and steeped in Eastern Shore culture, St. Michaels offers a beautiful contrast to cities such as Washington and Baltimore, both of which make for a great day trip.
Earning several accolades as one of the Top 10 Best Small Coastal Towns in America, one of the top 10 Most Romantic Get-Aways, and one of the top 1000 Places to See Before You Die, St. Michaels is without a doubt a bucket list vacation destination!
