Set in a quiet neighbourhood full of pet-friendly walking paths, this one bedroom townhouse, invites up to four guests and your four-legged loved ones, to unwind in true beach vacation style. Aptly named ‘The Crab Shack’, it’s the ideal starting point for a getaway so good that you’ll have to pinch yourself to make sure it’s real. It features a cosy beach themed interior, spacious outdoor patio and yard with all the amenities and pet-friendly ceramic tiling throughout. Plus, it’s just a short walk or bike ride to the oceanfront, yet far away enough that you can enjoy the calm and quiet that you crave on a serene, seaside holiday.

This 100-year-old barn, located on a historical landmark property, has been beautifully converted into a modern one-bedroom apartment with rustic charm. It shares almost an acre of land with the owner’s arts and crafts bungalow and features fantastic views of trees, flowers and a backyard vineyard. Beyond the property, natural wonders continue in the Lake Shores neighbourhood, where you can take leisurely lakeside walks with your dogs, or pile them in the car and head to the beautiful beaches of Chesapeake Bay, just a five-minute drive away.
