Owner Supplied Testimonials

We spent a week at this beautiful home with our family for our sons wedding at the Naval Academy. There were 11 adults and 5 children ages 4 and under. It perfectly fit my husband and I and our 4 adult children, spouses and grandchildren. Everyone had plenty of private space and every bedroom/bed was heavenly. All the amenities, supplies, appliances, games, outdoor equipment, views, spaces, location and Debbie's most wonderful warm and welcoming hospitality were more then we imagined. The weather that week was beautiful and sunny the entire time which provided for some fun on the water, paddle boarding and kayaking. Beautiful location for wedding photo's. We had a catered breakfast the day after the wedding at the house with additional guests. Debbie's recommendation for Kens Creative Kitchen was wonderful. They had plenty of room to work and display the food in the main kitchen and the food was fantastic and delicious. There just isn't one negative thing to say. Our entire family had an amazing time that week and loved the house very much. Thank you Debbie for providing a beautiful home with every comfort and convenience that made our vacation and stay a week to remember with fun, joy and happiness. We will definitely be back.

We just spent a week in this lovely home for our son's wedding at St. Mary's in Annapolis. From top to bottom this home was absolutely perfect for our family. The house is outfitted with everything you could possibly think of including every dish and utensil imaginable. We had 7 adults and 2 small children staying in the home and there was plenty of room to spread out and really enjoy the lovely setting. The decks off the back of the house were amazing!! The beds were comfy (everyone to a person wanted to know where the beds came from!) I think Debbie (our hostess) should keep that as a trade secret! She was wonderful to work with.....every question answered and every concern met.....an amazing hostess! Thank You Debbie for making our family get-together very special. We would recommend this home to anyone with no reservations....it's absolutely a find!!
