Interaction with guests
If we happen to be in the cottage during your stay, we go out of our way to make sure that you are happy and that you have everything that you need and then we leave you alone unless you want us or need us.
The yard and the private beach are shared with the cottage.
Other things to note
For the sportsman, our house is situated on the Chesapeake Bay with excellent fishing directly accessible from the bank or nearby boat launch. Waterfowl hunting in the highly productive Barrier Island Chain is only a few miles away or you can hunt directly offshore here on Bayside!
After sundown from the back deck, you can see the twinkling lights of historic Tangier Island. By day when the sky is clear, a distant image of the little island town is also visible. Tangier was a strategic British base of operations during the war of 1812, and it is approximately 13 miles distant in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. Boat tours are available for visiting the wonderful and unique island. This makes for a great day of sightseeing, shopping and dining on local cuisine, along with a fantastic boat ride to and from the destination.
Wallops Island is a well known NASA location for rocket launches into outer space. It has become a significant facility which deploys many rockets throughout a typical year, including the launch to supply the International Space Station. From the back porch of 'Seven Mile House', these spectacular events are visible in the night sky. On a clear evening, one can actually see the rocket profile and separation of the various rocket stages during early, rapid acceleration. The light show from the blast and burning fuel is spectacular! Plan your vacation when a launch is scheduled from Wallops Island for an unforgettable event in your Chesapeake vacation! Information regarding upcoming rocket launch dates is available from the NASA (email hidden)/centers/wallops/home
