Marvels is far into the countryside on a small river, which was visible from our window. We were warmly welcomed with a glass of wine and cheese when we arrived, social-distanced on the deck. The house is lovely and the breakfast was ample and delicious. Debbie even made a special trip to the grocery to get the kind of milk we requested. Marley, the dog, is also a welcoming presence and we enjoyed playing with him.

Debbie and Alan were wonderful hosts! By the end of our stay, we felt like family. Pictures in any brochure could not portray the actual beauty and serenity of the resort. Breakfast was better than any restaurant, with many assorted goodies. Even though it was fully occupied, we did not feel crowded. The interaction was perfect and we all shared experiences, and offered personal ideas as to where to visit in the vicinity. We plan on going back again soon!

Lovely home on a lovely property. Very low key and we felt like guests at a good friend’s home. Went on quick bicycling adventure. Great restaurant nearby. Went to Easton, st Michael and Blackwater NWR. Loved it. We’ll be back for sure

This was such a lovely treat! If you're looking for a quiet stay with beautiful scenery, this is the place for you! The house sits right on the creek and you have a wonderful view sitting on their dock. The hosts, Debbie and Allen, are so welcoming and warm. I felt like I was staying over the home of good friends. There are plenty of places to eat, which you will have to take a short drive to. Also, Downtown Cambridge is a short drive away. We will definitely visit again!

You won't want to leave
The minute you walk in the door, The Marvel's treat you like family. Whether your into quiet time by the fire, relaxing in the hot tub, or peacefully casting your day away on the dock, you will not find a better place to stay. We stayed for just one night on our way down to Ocean City and our time there was the most enjoyable part of the weekend
