Take a step back in time at this Greek Revival style home. This rental is meticulously detailed with each room decorated in period fashion, from hand-painted and imported wallpaper to handcrafted cherry cabinets. There are four porches, including one screened-in porch, to catch the light and the breeze at any time of the day. This home is on the National Register of Historic Places, and there is an enthralling history attached to the house (both presidents James Garfield and Ted Roosevelt once stayed here). Beautiful flower gardens add to the ambiance, and a huge field in back offers a great place for kids to play.
Located right in the center of Chestertown, with restaurants, a theater, boutique shops, and a grocery store all within a short walk, as well as public tennis and basketball courts, you and your group will have plenty to do.
