Pieceful Cottage is located in the small, secluded fishing village of Wenona, MD. It sits at the southern end of Deal Island, which is the home of the historic Chesapeake Bay Skipjacks, the only remaining commercial sailing fleet. Located on a quiet street, just one hundred and fifty feet back from the bay and provides wonderful water views. The Deal Island Wildlife Management area is nearby, a popular place for birding, fishing and hunting. There is so much to do on the Island, go for a peaceful walk, take a nice long bike ride, enjoy a kayak adventure, or bring your own boat to go fishing on the bay. Enjoy the sunsets from our screened-in lower deck or on the open upper deck with 270 degree view of the bay and harbor where we love to sit and relax with a glass of wine at the end of the day. To the southwest you can see Smith Island in the distance, and on a clear night, the stars shine brightly without the distraction of the city lights.
The house has an open floor plan and provides plenty of space for two families. The kitchen is bright and airy, there is a large country table with room for 6 – 8. It’s fully stocked with all the usual appliances, and with a new refrigerator. The main living area has a gas fireplace with a large flat-screen TV. An inviting sunroom with water views from the bay window, provides another living area, stocked with books and games. This room leads out to the lower screened-in deck with comfortable seating and another table for six. A mudroom adjoins the sunroom and offers a front load washer and dryer, along with a whole house water filtration system. The lower floor has a master bedroom with a queen bed, a guest room with twins and a new full bath with a walk-in shower.
The second floor has a large master with a brass queen bed and pull-out double couch with sitting/TV/movie area. Off the master bedroom you will find the upper deck where another table with 4 chairs provides an additional seating area and unobstructed sunset views. Down the hall is another guest room with a twin bed, a day bed and a window seat. Between the rooms is a brightly lit bathroom with a jacuzzi tub.
