Welcome to the land of pleasant living! Talbot County is host to over 620 miles of shoreline! And that means many breathtaking views of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.

 

All year long, there are events and the best place to experience it all is right here in Talbot County!

 

Watersports and water wildlife are just two of the many incredible offerings from this spectacular county. Whether you choose a vacation full of activities like kayaking, cycling, canoing, a skipjack cruise, sailing or fishing, take in a live concert or visit the area's many art galleries, or perhaps enjoy a spa treatment or massage, there's always something magical about a vacation in Talbot County.

 

When it comes to eating, you can be sure of variety a plenty! Blue Crabs, Oysters, Striped Bass (known as Rockfish locally), Flounder, Bluefish, Goose, or Venison, are just a few of the many delectable items that can also be an activity in your vacation. Eating crabs that you caught that very same day from your private pier...chartering a fishing trip with one of the area's charter captains....or during the winter months, hiring a guide to go goose, duck deer hunting. St. Michaels is also host to many fabulous restaurants that cater to every taste imaginable.

 

Think you'll be bored when you're here? Not a chance with the many sight-seeing and historical opportunities. Visit the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, or The Cannon Ball House, St. Mary's Square or Black Walnut Point. Do some shopping at the shoppes in St. Michaels, or catch the Ferry at Bellvue and visit the historic town of Oxford. Talbot County also has 1 public, 2 semi-private and 1 private golf courses, and there are several more a short drive away.

 

The most wonderful thing about a vacation in Talbot County is that you can really do whatever your heart desires and our vacation rental homes give you all the amenities needed to complete you getaway.
