Natural splendor abounds at Ransome's 250-acre waterfront estate with one mile of shoreline in the heart of the Chesapeake Bay area on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Our complex is the ideal setting for your family vacation, reunion, club retreat, or a weekend get-away. The Complex has lots of amenities, not to mention abundant wildlife and amazing vistas.

Group session

Visit local historic sites. Roam the countryside that Mitchner vividly describes in his book “Chesapeake”. Discover bay country life in all of its tranquility and tradition. Perfect for boating, fishing, bird watching, golfing, shopping, photography, sightseeing or just relaxing and enjoying the unrivaled and spectacular views and beauty of the bay. The tributaries off the bay offer a peaceful and tranquilizing experience as you glide along, viewing the serene and scenic marshes, making RCR a "kayakers paradise"!

Boating fun

Boats, canoes, kayaks and bikes can be rented locally. For your convenience, there is a small grocery store 3 miles from our retreat.

Our retreat will welcome you to a carefree visit ready for making memories that will last a lifetime.
