A Chesapeake Bay Vacation

Beautiful sunrises and panoramic Chesapeake bay view’s surround you in this 3 bedrooms, 2 full bath, vacation

bayfront rental home (sleeps eight). 
 

The home sits on hill overlooking a semi-private sandy beach, just a few steps away, and the landscaping is absolutely beautifully.   
 

It is located in Southern Maryland’s Western shore, only 45 min from Washington, D.C & Annapolis, MD.


We live in our house six months of the year, so it not like your normal rental.  It lives like a primary home. It is beautifully decorated with lots of art work and oriental carpets and all the beds, sofas and chairs are very comfortable.

You will love watching beautiful sunrises over the expansive view of the bay (over 8 miles in width) or the eagles and osprey hawks dive into the water to capture their prey and the crab boats as they slowly move up the Chesapeake.  This a magical place, a photographer’s dream come true.

You will have so much fun catching fish and crabs off our 450 pier, walking for miles on our sandy beach or on trails in deeply wooded land that borders our property or enjoying the beach fire pit.

 

Your children will also enjoy the swing set we have in the back of the house.

We have a little something for everyone where memories of a lifetime are made!

 

ABOUT

We love watching the cruise ships and other large vessels travel the bay, especially at night. Our master bedroom is a wall of glass, so waking up to see the lights of the big cruise ship is so much fun.

​Searching for fossils from the Miocene era including shark teeth is not only fun but educational for the entire family.  We are one of the few places in the world where you can find these shells.  The Chesapeake also offers up lots of old seagrass so be sure to bring some jewelry making wire.

Enjoy having dinner on our beach as we provide lots of picnic tables and a charcoal barbecue. We also supply lots of beach chairs for your enjoyment.  Watching a cracking wood fire in one of our two floor to ceiling fireplaces is a must, especially in the fall and winter months.

We have a gas grill on our front bay deck with table and chairs for 8.  It is hard to get off this deck because of the magnificent bay views but the back deck is perfect for morning coffee, listening to the morning chatter of the birds will make you smile.

This area is rich in colonial history so be sure to study its history before arriving.  And we are only 45-60 minutes to all the historical sites of the Washington D.C.!

We have fabulous seafood restaurants within minutes of the house or travel 14 miles to the charming town of Solomon’s Island, a step back in time.

Our home and community is truly magical, you will make wonderful memories here and will return over the years, most of our clients come back for another visit.

GUEST REVIEWS

“We had a girl's getaway here for my 30th birthday, and the experience far exceeded our expectations. The house was beautiful and was just steps from a private beach, there are clear views of the bay from almost every corner of the house, and I fell asleep to a 180 degree view of the bay and the sounds of the surf in the master bedroom. Its minutes from Solomon's Island and has something for everyone. The owners are extremely helpful and courteous. I'd highly recommend it and will come back again!”
