Featured on Chestertown's Historic House Tour in 2017, our darling, historic cottage, built in 1880, is pet-friendly, comfortable and cozy. The front porch is just made for people watching and the fenced-in backyard has plenty of room for dogs to play.

An oasis in the midst of town, the Little Red Cottage is a block and a half from the Chester River waterfront, literally steps from downtown's shops, theaters and restaurants, and also a pretty stroll to Washington College's beautiful campus.

Location

Chestertown, Maryland, United States

Historic Chestertown, about 1.5 hours from Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington DC is an incredibly special place. It's located on the Chester River, a tributary off the Chesapeake Bay, and George Washington and Thomas Jefferson (according to a fabulous story in Garden and Gun Magazine, which named Chestertown one of the south's top 10 towns) both ate, slept and imbibed there.

Chestertown is probably best known as the home of Washington College, a suburb institution that lends our town character, culture, sport, and arts. We're also home to the Schooner Sultana, a reproduction vessel from the mid 18th century, which is also part of a larger, and thriving, environmental program. Chestertown is a Main Street Community and has a thriving arts district.

What else? We're home to annual events like the Chestertown Tea Party, the Harry Potter Festival, and Downrigging Weekend. We're a great destination for mariners, whether your idea of bliss is a swanky yacht or a sleek kayak.

So the first thing: We’ve named the house “The Boathouse Cottage” but let’s just say, one man’s boat is another man’s/woman’s cruise ship. There’s no nautical kitsch in this 1900-built home. While Chestertown is all about the river, and the Sultana, sailboats and motor yachts, we’re actually cruise ship folk. We like both the yacht-like expedition vessels and the big ships-complete-with-water-parks. Not so into piloting our own boat. Second thing: Well before I met my husband (he’s from Finland, I’m American, we met in Italy), I lived in this house. Two years, the happiest pre-hubby years of my life. Adored the house, rented, until work called me to another locale. It’s stayed in my heart, and though we’re happily settled a few blocks away, when Cannon Street came on the market, we wanted to buy it. We love the idea of sharing it with travelers who are venturing to our fabulous town. It’s a happy house.

During your stay
We live across town and are available to assist -- and will hopefully greet you when you arrive, if we're not traveling -- but we'll otherwise let you be!
