our story

Merchant Social - The rural retreat for the urban soul. 

We created Merchant Social for people like us who have a true appreciation for time-honored, non-disposable belongings and meaningful experiences. This is a place that cultivates genuine and authentic interactions, allowing you to be truly present in the moments you spend here. A step back in time.

The property is the perfect place for running, hiking, and biking along its trails. Because its situated close to the Chesapeake Bay, it's ripe for canoeing, kayaking, and water sports. Couple that with great food and drink and you have a location that marries nature with both activity and relaxation. We want people to step away from their laptops and devices and enjoy the social interactions we offer, hence Merchant Social.  

Our unique, inspiring, and enjoying venue is a perfect retreat from the stress of modern life.
