Description from owner


Hooper's Island is located between the Honga River and Chesapeake Bay on Marylands Eastern Shore.

This unique island is a "MUST DO" on your bucket list.

Especially noted for: Maryland's famous Blue Crabs and Breathtaking Sunsets!!!

Hooper's Island is must do on your bucket list as you surround yourself in this modern spacious contemporary ranch located on a quiet lane with a lovely view of the Bay across the road. Sit and swing on the enclosed screen porch while Ospreys, Blue Herons and Eagles fly by while amazing sunsets and night skys dazzle you.

Enjoy the use of your little private dock on the riverside. Great for crabbing or just chillin out. A small boat under 12 feet can be

hooked up to the dock or a little larger one can be kept in the driveway on a trailer.. We do not have mooring poles. If your boat is larger, there is a little marina across the waterway within a few minutes from the guest house where you can moore the boat.

Included in this package is a vintage auto return pool table in family room for your entertainment, wireless high speed internet, land line phone, flat screen Direct TV, Outdoor games in shed. Private driveway parking. Please note: you can tow a boat up to 18 feet and also leave it in the driveway.

Up to 5 guests. Adult oriented home and vicinity ... suited for adult vacationers. However children over 13 are welcome. Please note: We are closed from November 1 through March 31 ...Opening day April 1. BOOK NOW for your bit of paradise on Hooper's Island

De-stress and enjoy a quiet and peaceful vacation surrounded by the Chesapeake Bay, Back Creek and the Honga River. Perfect for a romantic getaway, friends getaway, nature enthusiasts, boaters of all kinds, artists, photographers, writers, historians and bird watching.

There is so much history on Hoopers Island.

Go Biking and strolling along the scenic bike route. Visit the little wading beach by the causeway on the riverside to sift through the sand for old sea glass and antique arrowhead artifacts, or fish from the point... Just bring your beach chair, fishing pole, beach shoes, towel and a bag to collect your sea treasures.

If time allows, take a day trip to the Ocean City beach and boardwalk. A great place to visit for a day of swimming, ammusements, walking on the boardwalk and dining in great restaurants. Also check out Assateague Island, "the land of the wild ponys". It is a 10 minute drive from Ocean City. Another "must do" on your bucket list.
