Laelder asked:
My husband and I are considering relocating to Tilghman Island. We want more land and quiet space. But I would have to commute 3-5 days a week through St. Michael's to Easton at "rush hour"…

We're on Bozman Neavitt Road, west of St. Michaels, MD, about 1.6 miles south of Highway 33.

We're on the west side of the road, looking out over Harris Creek to our west, where its northwest branch begins.

The sunsets are marvelous here, but the mosquitoes in the evening are as large and plentiful as the sunsets are beautiful. And they are everywhere.

I also grew up on the water in Oxford. What the other answers regarding swimming in the waters don't seem to be mentioning are the sea nettles that are quite active from about the end of May trough September. The are also known as "jelly fish". Their sting is very painful. There are some summers that they aren't quite so prevelent, but most of the time they kept me from swimming very much.

I will be happy to speak with you more about the area if you like, Marrie Retallack, 28 year agent with Coldwell Banker.

St Michaels is a wonderful place to live, I grew up here and after a long stay in beautiful Colorado, I have returned. If you enjoy biking, there are many scenic byways that will take you on a tour of Talbot County and along the shores of many of our beautiful creeks and rivers. Saint Michaels is certainly the main draw to the area but don't forget to do some exploring to some of the quaint villages outside of town. Places like Neavitt, Bozman, Sherwood and Claiborne will give you a true sense of the area and how special it really is.

As for storing and locking a bicycle, there are several place in town where you can secure a bike and take a stroll or a scenic boat ride in Saint Michaels Harbor and the Miles River. I hope you enjoy youe stay and feel free to call or email me at 410-714-0007, if you would like any additional first hand information about the area. I hope you enjoy your visit and decide to relocate to the area.

The bells you mention originate at a church in the town of St. Michaels that was established in 1673. That's right. 100 years before the American Revolution. It has a right to ring its bells.

The bells are a tradition in this charming American town. If you think they'll bother you, come stay in a B & B for the weekend. You may find you don't even hear them after the first day. Their caroling causes most people to stop in their tracks and smile.

They don't ring all night long, by the way. But even so, their sound is soothing and rather assuring somehow. Sort of a "God's in His Heaven, all's right with the world" type of feeling.

The town is very quiet from January to April. Many shops and restaurants are open only on the weekends and, although there are some activities, things are very slow.

If you are used to more activity, you can always travel the short distance from here to Easton, where activities are more numerous and varied. If you scoff at lectures at the library, Fire Dept. dinners and bingo, senior and childrens activities, this is not the place for you.

However, if you are interested in becoming a part of a small community comprised of some of the nicest people you've ever met, this might just be what you're looking for.

Many experts suggest you rent for a year or two before buying in any new location. Experience has shown us that is a very good idea.

Hi Phoebe,

Yes, this smallpark is a public park and is locally know as "Muskrat" park. It is a great spot to see the harbor and is often used as a short cut for locals and tourists. The park features a gazebo and on the weekends hosts the local farmers' market. Also, during our summer months, on Thursday
evening small concerts in the park are held and these are free. To learn more about of historic little watertown,please fee free to contact me or visit my website -
