Thunderstick Lodge is 158-acre outdoor lovers paradise. This late 1800s built estate was totally remodeled in 2020. Eight hundred yards of waterfront seclusion less than two hours from DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia. Horizon views without a building, nature abounds everywhere. The rare Sika deer, waterfowl and bald eagles are likely to be seen daily. The property adjoins 1000 acres of Nature Conservancy for your wildlife hiking and viewing pleasure. Fishing, crabbing, kayaking and paddle boarding are all within 30 yards of the home. Local attractions include the quaint city of Cambridge with local boutiques and dining, nationally acclaimed Blackwater Wildlife Refuge, the country's finest waterfowl refuge. For the golfers, the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Course is less than 20 minutes.
Taylor’s Island is a quaint waterman’s island with 2 marinas and 2 restaurants where the people are friendly and welcoming. The home is a five-bedroom, 3800 square foot, newly remodeled modern colonial shaded by 150-year-old oaks. The home's front porch has two story columns and rocking chairs for that afternoon iced tea. The house’s waterfront side has floor to ceiling glass for your outdoor viewing pleasure of salt marshes, pines and the Saint John’s Creek typically filled with Canadian geese, mallards and swans.
The home has a fully stocked kitchen with double oven, microwave, gas stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, and fireplace. There is a huge island topped with a cherry slab that seats 7. The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, serving dishes, basic spices, coffee pot (Keurig and Drip), plates, silver wear and everything you need from a basic breakfast to a gourmet dinner. The dining area has a table that seats up to 12. The bar room has a handcrafted bar built from 2 slabs taken from the home during the remodel and crafted into a beautiful bar top with sink, beverage fridge and ice machine. Main room with L-shaped couch, big papa chairs, large screen TV and gas fireplace, a great place to enjoy the provided indoor games. The bonus room/5th bedroom has a full bath, murphy bed, heated floors and cubbies for all your outdoor stuff. This room does not have a door on it but is still very private (see pictures). It is off the main living/tv room. The laundry room has full size washer and dryer. The home’s second floor has 2 master suites with king size beds, ensuite bathrooms with heated floors, an outstanding amenity you will want in your home once you've had it on your feet. The masters also have Keurig coffee machines in the room for the early risers. The bunk room has two bunks. Each bunk bed has a queen on the bottom and a single on the top with a maximum of 160 pounds in the top bunk. The fourth bedroom has a queen size bed and sitting area. The queen room and the bunk room share a large bathroom.
Connecting all the second-floor bedrooms is the room we call the Sipping Room. It is one of the best places to view wildlife and the river while enjoying happy hour and a sunset. Due to the home’s height off the ground, when you're on the second story it’s a third story view.
Outside has 2 picnic tables, a gas grill and fire pit. The waterfront lawn is huge with plenty of room for games. Corn hole, badminton/volleyball net and other games provided. There is a brand new dock that was installed in April 2022 with incredible views up and down the creek. Single-person kayak, double-person kayak and 2 canoes are available for your use, or you can bring your own. You can put the kayaks and canoes into St John’s Creek right from the yard and enjoy a paddle. If you are adventurous, the Chesapeake Bay is only a three-quarter mile paddle away where rock and other sport fishing is plentiful. Four bicycles available to ride around the island. If you are a “real biker” bring your own…just off the island is where the Eagle Man biking leg is run.
The property’s acreage is available for hiking and consists of 60 acres of waterfowl impoundments/ponds, 5 acres of grass and trees around the house, 100 acres of salt marsh and pine forests. The nature conservancy’s Taylor’s Island property, a public property available for birding and hiking is adjoins to this property. You can walk right to it.
This house is great for relaxing and getting away from it all. If you are looking for city life, lots of restaurants and other people, this is NOT the place for you. This property is great for family or friend getaways, outdoor enthusiasts, nature lovers, birders, hikers and bicyclists. New for 2023 we have upgraded our Wi-Fi to Starlink which has download speeds of over 100 mbps so if you have to work from here, you would be able to. Cell service in and right around the house is now fine with the new Wi-Fi however, away from the house making and receiving calls is limited but texts go through 99% of the time.
Located in Taylors Island, this vacation home is in a rural area and on the waterfront. Perigeaux Vineyards and Winery and R&J's PlayPark are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park. Richardson Maritime Museum and Ruark Boatworks are also worth visiting. Be sure to check out the area's animals with activities such as game walks and birdwatching.
