Family Room - a room with a view!

The family room is a great place for indoor family fun. It has a great view of the cove and easy access to the deck. The comfortable seating arrangement also affords room for overflow sleeping on the day bed. Vintage fishing citations, an antique rod and other wall art add interest and beach flavor to the room. Interesting books about watching wildlife, binoculars, cookbooks for local dishes, a jar of marbles, a vintage Scrabble game, and a rack of information about local attractions offer something of interest for everyone. There is also a large television and DVD player, although most of our guests spend so much time enjoying the outdoors that they say they never turn it on. In keeping with the vintage fun of Runaway you'll also find a vintage rotary dial phone just a few steps away in the living room.


The bunkroom features a twin bed, full-size futon and nice seating areas. You'll also find most of the board games, crayons, and great immagination-stimulating toys like a wooden marble maze and MagNuts (a great circus with performers with magnets in their feet - they area a big favorite).

Fishing, Crabbing, Kayaking and Relaxing

The cove and Bay are also great places to fish, crab, kayak or just relax and enjoy the view.

A Lovely Wooded Setting

The yard at Runaway is heavily wooded and has great plantings. Guests are encouraged to pick flowers form the yard and enjoy them in a bouquet.

Master Bedroom

The master bedroom features
a beautiful view of the water,large
double closet, comfy queen-size
bed and double dresser.

Bedrooms with Character and Charm

Two more bedrooms (each with full-size beds) and a "bunk room" with a twin bed are all comfy and inviting with lovely quilts and great art.

Full Bath

Just like with the rest of the house, the full bath is tastefully and artistically decorated. The walls are hand painted using a sea sponge technique. There is a large vanity with plenty of drawers for good storage space. The tub with shower boasts a unique seascape cloth shower curtain.

If you fall in love with one of the pieces of unusual art work at Runaway, many are available for purchase, allowing for an ever-changing and interesting art experience when you visit.

This view from the back yard shows the brick patio, which is terraced into the hillside, and the view from the back deck across the cove and through the trees to the Chesapeake.
