The pool house meets all the needs to service the pool and the participates.
Verification of the creek name, shant say, yet logic indicates the name is quite well suited "Deep Creek" for it has a well marked channel from the Chesapeake with 5' at MLW. Mid-left in the photo is the boatyard, the best on the Eastern Shore with very kind owners.
Electric and fresh water is accessed at the 50' dock.
This farm with its seemingly endless shoreline has all the privacy in the world all the while being just 15 minutes to the town center of Onancock.

The quest house reflects the architectural style so admired on the Eastern Shore, Big House Little House.
If the quest stay too long then its important a fully equipped kitchen is available, this guest house has just that.
The bedroom in the guest house, lovely views from all the rooms.
Wildlife pond is really very entertaining, for if you are ever so quite at dawn and dusk you will see all sorts of species indigenous and migrating.
All 53 acres of grounds have been well identified with a clear purpose. I'd say this location is for those needed shady days.
The little red shed houses a good part of the garden tools.
The grounds are immense with the terrain having several attributes, from forest, mature gardens, massive trees and marshlands.
A portion of the 1700' of shoreline.
