Ransome's Chesapeake Retreats (RCR)
is a multi-generational family vacation complex. RCR has several facilities, in close proximity to each other, on and near this exclusive and secluded bay estate.
It's an ideal situation for your special gathering, where you are close together but can still have your own space.
RCR has been called a "rare find", as there are few, if any, large estates
for your use that are situated on the Bay. This captivating estate is available for your enjoyment and pleasure.
