If you are looking for a get away cottage in the heart of a beautiful water oriented pedestrian friendly town - Crickets Cottage in Oxford is your destination. Immediately around the corner from the Oxford Park - with its shade trees, enormous waterviews, picnic tables and swing set for the kids. Stroll to the Oxford Market for a nice bottle of wine and homemade bread or the kids can run over for some penny candy. Take a bike ride over to the Oxford Strand and hang on the town beach then catch one of the 20 flavors of the day at Victors Scottish Creamery. Your choice of 2 waterfront and 4 additional town restaurants for your evening supper or simply ask the local crabber Wayne - we'll give you his number - for the days catch steamed. Cooking in local from the Wed farmer's market is easy with Viking appliances. Crickets Cottage circa 1910 has been sympathetically renovated.

Property Reviews 
Perfect Location
A guest from Murray, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013
Crickets Waterman Cottage is in a perfect location for touring the historic town of Oxford as well as serving as a central location to tour other locations on the Eastern Shore. The cottage is located next to a wonderful market, is near a museum and the local library and and within a short walking distance of the water--both the bay (with a park) and the marina. We would not hesitate to return here and hope that we will be able to do so next year.

Would love to have you back. We agree Cricket's location (and interior updates) make this historic cottage one of our guests' favorites.

Our Stay in Oxford, MD

We enjoyed our stay in Oxford - what a great little town. Loved the park and so did our dog. Enjoyed the sites that were near by as well.

Yes, Oxford is a very dog centric area - the town park and the Oxford strand are two favorites!

Eden in Oxford, MD
Alex F. from Salford, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013
We had a very peaceful and relaxing time at the Crickets Waterman Cottage. It is a beautifully refurbished cottage with almost any amenity one could wish for on vacation. We invited some friends for the Labor Day weekend and despite the smallness of the cottage, no one felt cramped. We also enjoyed taking our bikes to the ferry and cycling into St. Michaels, and kayacking around the marinas and small tributaries. A great get-away destination within easy reach of Philadelphia!

August in the Cricket Waterman Cottage
Denise P. from Northfield, NJ does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 20 days in August, 2013
All in all the Cottage was adorable. We enjoyed our stay in Oxford very much. There were just a few issues. I was concerned with the lack of security. The only lock on the doors was a very simple turn lock, very similar to a bedroom. The yard is very poorly maintained so the bugs are so bad it is almost impossible to sit on the cute porch. Bathrooms have nowhere to put your toiletries or towels. Ceilings are so low that when you cook on the stove top the fire alarm goes off. House is very clean and furnished nicely. The location is perfect.

A Perfect Small House in Oxford
Peter S. from Syracuse, NY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013
Oxford, MD, is a spectacularly beautiful town, and Crickets Waterman Cottage is a perfect place to enjoy it. Located on a quiet side street only a block from the town park, all that Oxford has to offer is at your fingertips. The house itself is charming, well-equipped, and beautifully renovated. You'll have trouble deciding whether to be out enjoying things, sitting on the porch or in the yard, or hanging out indoors in the wonderful kitchen or the comfy living room. One thing not to miss: early each morning, walk the few steps to the Oxford Market to buy fresh-baked muffins hot from the oven.

Response from Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals LLC
Yes we think McKelvy's Market is a great spot also - and could not be more convenient. With wine, muffins, ice cream what else could you want in a store? In fact, the owners were inspired by your message and in 2014 guests will have a credit at McKelvy's Market to purchase those wonderful muffins, ice cream or a bottle of wine. A larger coffee pot has also been added to the kitchen equipment. Thanks for your thoughts and hope to see you back in 2014.

Great Place, Bad Service
Susan H. from Fairfax, VA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013
Liked the rental, disappointed with Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals. Called twice (once a day two days in a row) regarding the wifi not working. Both times was told someone would call me back. Never received any phone calls. Apparently once they have your money they don't care about assisting you. Will not be recommending ESVR for that reason. Additionally, dishes at the rental were dirty- dried food on plates and pebbles (yes pebbles!) in the colander. Planned to tell ESVR people that instead of writing it in a review, but given their handling of the wifi issue I knew they would be unresponsive.

Great stay @ Cricketts Cottage
Christine F. from Westminster, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2013
Had a great stay in the cottage. Could definitely use a bigger coffee pot and a small table/ shelf in the main bathroom on which to place toiletries.Thanks to ESVR for all your help!

Lovely town, quaint house
Amy R. from Washington, DC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012
We had a wonderful time in Oxford and were completely charmed by the town. The house is very quaint (as is customary in an 1800s home, the ceilings are very low, so if you are tall, you may struggle a bit!), and well set up for a couple. Our one criticism relates to the kitchen, which has been renovated to include a new Viking gas range. Unfortunately, the microwave style hood vent cannot keep up with the range - not even close - even when just warming food on the stove top. This, coupled with a super sensitive firm detector meant that we set off the fire alarm every time we ran the stove (whether stove top or oven), and even when we used the toaster. After 3 days, we abandoned cooking inside and resorted to the grill. It is a real shame, as the kitchen is a great set up. We think this could be a quick fix with a more powerful venting system. Otherwise, we very much enjoyed our stay.

Thank you for the feedback. The homeowners are very attentive to this property and have added mattress toppers to the beds. The smoke alarm in the kitchen can be tricky as noted this historic cottage has lower ceiling heigths. We certainly don't want to disable the alarms so other folks have found opening windows and those great doors out to the yard tend to do the trick while cooking something that may create something on the stove.

Nice, Quiet and Relaxing.
A guest from Norristown, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2011
Had a wonderful time at Crickets Waterman Cottage! Was a cute, quite and relaxing place. Not a lot to do in town, but St. Michael's and Easton are a stones throw away. Has a couple tiny beaches and a nice park for toddlers. Very nice people in town. I would recommend the house...very cool.

Please come back. The property's wood stove in the kitchen is a great addition to the fall season to include the Waterfowl Festival, Chesapeake Film Eastern Shore sometimes feels like the world of fall festivals! You must check out Halloween sometime, the entire town comes to life with trick or treaters - even if you don't have a little one it is quite fun to reminisce of the days when kids went door to door in a village grabbing as much candy as they can.

Loved our comment - If you wanna get away to do nothing - I think we may use that as a marketing headline in the future. Also, please note the owner took your comments to heart re: supplying a picnic table in the yard for outside eating and has added one to the property. Thanks!
