Vacation Home Rental Description:



Closest 4 Br vacation home to St Mikes with big St. Michaels Harbor views.

A sprawling one level home within blocks of the historic district of St. Michaels, Swan Harbor is a rare to find waterfront vacation home with walking proximity to the town of St. Michaels. Expansive views, waterfront porch, private dock and 4 bedrooms to bring along some additional friends and family, you can easily come and go into town for a coffee, lunch, dinner and all that historic St. Michaels has to offer.

St Michaels Vacation Week
A guest from Hagerstown, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in May, 2014
Enjoyed the week. Great location on the Miles River. Quiet street. Lots of privacy. Four stars for general condition because the coffee maker was very dirty and there were dishes left in the dish washer. They were clean but not put away. No serious problems. The house was not spotless but very clean. No complaints there. The folks at ESVR were very helpful. If I were going back to St Michaels I would use this house again.

Swan Harbor
Joanie R. from Sykesville, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014
We had a wonderful stay in Swan Harbor. The location is hard to beat. About 15 minutes walk to the center of town and right on the water. Gorgeous views. The property is a little older, but very comfortable and roomy. The owner and ESVR were extremely responsive to a small problem we had?taken care of within the hour! We had a little trouble checking out. We were not given a code to the lock box for departure and could not get anyone on the phone at the realty company. We reached the owner and he was able to help us. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. The house needs some updating, but it is very reasonably priced and the view is priceless!

Response from Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals LLC

At anytime if our office is not open simply leave a message on the emergency line and we have folks on call 24/7 to contact guests ASAP. We agree Swan Harbor has one of the prime locations in the portfolio please come back again.

Slightly disappointed
A guest from Chesapeake, VA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013
This property needs some repair and upgrades. It has been recently painted and it was vacuumed and dusted, but that was about it. Towel racks are missing in bathrooms, some light fixtures don't work, the place seems musty, and additional cleaning should be done to make the guests feel welcome. We wanted to open the windows to enjoy the breeze off the water, but storm windows prevent this is all rooms except the sunroom. And, when we opened the windows in the sunroom, it was clear they had not been cleaned before our arrival. The spaces between the windows and screens were full of leaves and spider webs. The outdoor furniture is piled in a flower bed, and would have required cleaning if we had wanted to use it. This should be done by the cleaning staff prior to the guest arriving. The window blinds were a mess...some open, some closed, some crooked, some bent, some broken. I spent the first 30 minutes of my visit straightening blinds because they drove me crazy as I was trying to enjoy the view. The furniture was also haphazardly placed as if someone had vacuumed and left it all crooked. Again, I found myself straightening furniture before I could enjoy my stay. The property is listed as walking distance to the histoic district. That statement should be removed from the property description. If you enjoy exercise, this is possible but it is really too far to make a walk into town reasonable. This was probably a beautiful home when built, but it needs a little work to make guests feel comfortable and welcome.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals LLC
Swan Harbor is a property that some folks love despite its shortcomings due to the view, location and value oriented price. We absolutely will take a look at the fixtures to insure all are in working order. Apologies about bugs in window, in the country atmosphere on the water the accumulation can be quicker than elsewhere but we will take a good cleaning to them so thank you for letting us know. We measure walking distance as .07 miles from Swan Harbor to Ava's Pizzeria and Wine Bar on Talbot Street - certainly please gauge your desire to walk based on that estimate. The town zoning of St. Michaels no longer issues vacation rental licenses in the historic district so Swan Harbor is one of the closest properties to town that you can rent for less than 4 months at a time. Please give us a call again and our pleasure to find you a home that better meets your needs and thank you for using ESVR.

Overall very nice
Karen G. from Manassas, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013
It was a nice time but the doors stick, the bathrooms could use an upgrade & the bushes to the dock need a serious trim plus if u r sitting in the yard they block the view of the water basically i would get rid of those bushes. Overall we had a relaxing time & the management was very helpful

Property Manager Response:
Response from Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals LLC
Thank you for the feedback. The home is an older home, however, our guests love it for the proximity to town and wide water views. Unfortunately due to local environmental ordinances, trees and bushes cannot be removed near the shoreline. Hope to see you again on MD's Eastern Shore!

Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013
This is a good rental property. Property is as described. We spent most of it on the water, be careful of low tide. Crabs were plentiful & the fireworks were good. Beds were comfortable & clean. Lots of room, inside & out. Large yard if you have kids.

Picture Perfect Views, Pretty and Quiet
Richard S. from Gaithersburg, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013
We did enjoy this large comfortable home. It does need room darkening blinds in the bedrooms, the kitchen stove and the coffee maker need replacing, dead trees, broken yard chairs need removal and gravel for the driveway would make it a lot better. Better Wi-fi connections would also help.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals LLC
Thank you for your feedback. The coffee maker has been replaced and the internet connection has been improved with a new wireless router. As this is an older home that is an investment property vs. someone's secondary vacation residence please note most appliances will be "as is" unless they are not properly functioning. We agree the home is large and comfortable for most but our pleasure to recommend another property that may better fit your needs on the next trip. As always, thank you for using ESVR.

Not worth the price!
A guest from Baltimore, MD does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in December, 2012
Swan Harbor is a very old rundown house. Parts of the house were cold and other parts too hot. The owner could improve on little things, like the coffee pot for example that makes coffee but not hot coffee. And, as others have noted, the internet connection is horrible. WiFi did not work. These are little things but nontheless should be noted. Perhaps in the summer months the place would be more palatable, but in winter, it leave a lot to be desired. I'm sure there are other places in St. Michael's that would fair much better at this price. Not recommended.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals LLC
Thank you for the feedback. The coffee pot has been replaced and a wireless router has improved the internet. What most folks like about this home is the view and the location which is close to town - the town property of St. Michaels does not allow for vacation rental licenses so Swan Harbor is one of the few properties in walking distance. We are sorry that the home did not meet your standards but hope that you will allow us to help you with another home in the future.

Swan Harbor
antonio q. from austin, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in August, 2012
Eastern shore Vacation Rentals was very professional and responsive. I will rent another property from them again. Location of the property is perfect with amazing view. The dock is a hazard and the outside furniture can use updating. Older home but not maintained inside and outside. Mold appears on ceiling of bathrooms. Peeling paint outside, over grown flower beds with weeds made me want to pull them instead of relax. The 20 year old beds and rusted refridge need replacement. Internet and TV need replacement. Watching the olympics and seeing partial screen was frustrating.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals LLC
Thank you for the feedback. You are correct this is an older home that is an investment property (vs. someone's secondary vacation home) therefore its older condition may not be to everyone's liking. Typically the view, location and charm of the house tend to sway most that stay there but we agree Swan Harbor is not a fit for someone who wants a newer property. Over the off season any mold, paint or landscaping issues have been remedied. The fridge was freshly painted to remedy any rust. Wireless router has improved internet immensely and the TV is still an older model but operational. We hope to see you again on the Eastern Shore but perhaps can recommend a different property based on your needs.

Would Definitely Rent Again
Reviewed by: Megan M. recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012
Overall, the place was clean, spacious and well-maintained. The location was great, loved being right on the water. There were problems with both the internet (unable to connect) and the TV is the living room (no sound). Also, several of the doors (bathrooms and 1 bedroom) frequently got stuck....that is why you travel with give you a hand when you get stuck!

Property Manager Response:
Response from Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals LLC
Thank you for the feedback. As of the summer 2013 the wireless router has been replaced and no complaints re: the internet access. The TV in the main living room is older but the sound is operational. This spring the owner worked on the "sticky" doors - one in particular is still tricky due to the age of the house and the wood swelling in hotter weather - this is the door to the river room - it does need a good tug. We hope to see you again on MDs Eastern Shore.

Not as advertised
Sherryl P. from Portland, OR does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in May, 2011
The view overlooking the water would have been wonderful, the windows were so dirty in, out and between the storm glass it sorely detracted!! The air-conditioning was non-existent in the bedrooms, given the high temperatures, sleeping was less then satisfactory! The distance from town was not within walking distance for young children as advertised! While floors were clean and the house was dusted there was a layer of grime over the stove and the refrigerator while clean on the inside is scary on the outside with the rust! Lastly it did not have wireless internet as advertised. Oh, did I mention the weeds outside the sunroom, they were about 5' tall and clearly visible when looking out to the water! I left with the feeling a stay in a hotel would have been better. While Pleased with ESR Co. I will NOT rent this house again!!

Swan Harbor is a perfect location. The view is magnificant. The house is a bit dated but functional and we enjoyed our long weekend. I would suggest an update to the DVD and VCR device. We could not get them to work during our stay. Also, I would suggest to any renters to bring their own games and movies because their are limited TV channels. We would visit Swam Harbor again!

Rough around the edges
Alexei M. from Alexandria, VA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in December, 2010
The location was lovely, and a the huge fireplace and dock were great. But overall the place really needs a sprucing up. The bed linens, in particular, are awful -- cheap blankets that feel like plastic, and a bed liner that actually *is* plastic. The central heating doesn't really work well in the bedrooms, and the blinds on the windows are tattered (not helpful if you want to sleep in on vacation as they let in tons of light). These are pretty cheap fixes and would make a big difference.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals LLC
Thanks for bringing some of this to our attention. The home's comforters were new in 2010, but there are also six cotten blankets in the home. The window valances and blinds will be repaired where necessary.

Perfect Location, Especially if You Have Dogs!
Cheryl L H. from Lancaster, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2010
This is a lovely home in desperate need of some TLC. The kitchen has very little counter space. While the appliances are dated, they all work perfectly. The microwave is a comical throwback to the `60s. The dishwasher has the best rack configuration I've ever seen.The bathrooms have not been updated, but there are two showers, and a shower/tub which was good for soaking. There is clearly a moisture problem as evidenced by the ceiling damage and mold at heating/cooling vents.The dock has become a bit rickety, and the seagulls have claimed the launch area their own. The gull poop makes it impossible to spend any time out there.This property would be perfect for vacationers with dogs since it is quite private and the yard is huge.In spite of all which is listed above, we would rent this property again.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals LLC
We agree with guest that the bathrooms and kitchen are dated. The owner is an investor and the home is for sale so it is unlikely the baths and kitchens will receive an upgrade unless it is under a new property owner. The home is clean and comfortably furnished but the selling features for this property are the view, the location to town (the town proper of St Michaels does not allow for short term vacation rentals) and the acreage. If a no frills home with a great view and location are what you are interested in Swan Harbor is a good fit. Otherwise it would be our pleasure to recommend another ESVR home.

Second time at Swan Harbor
A guest from Solon, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010
We've stayed at Swan Harbor for two years in a row and just love it there. We are a family with two middle school-aged children. It's very quiet, a lovely home -- yes the bathrooms are a bit dated, but personally I don't need a glamour bath on vacation -- with all that you need for cooking, laundry, and just relaxing. The house is nicely decorated and comfortable and the views to the water are so serene. We spend a lot of time on the dock there -- fishing, watching the boats, and we also put in a small jet boat at the ramp in Newcomb and kept it tied up. You can easily walk to the city pool which is never very crowded and also into town. Definitely recommend the house, along with Ava's Pizza and the Crab and Steak House at the marina. Also Rupert's had the very best cream of crab soup -- delicious!!
