Chesapeake Bay

When you visit the Chesapeake Bay you can either have a packed, fun-filled vacation or enjoy total relaxation. Most places to see are a short drive from our Chesapeake Bay farm, or you can relax right on our waterfront property bird watching and enjoying the wildlife scenery. You can also take to the water - fishing or exploring Chesapeake Bay & its tributaries in your own boat. Arrangements can even be made to have a rental boat/ charter waiting for you when you arrive!

No matter what your interests, the Chesapeake Bay at Marylands eastern shore has something for you. Call Ransome's Chesapeake Retreat at 1.888.726.7863 for your next Chesapeake Bay vacation, wedding location or family reunion.
