Description from owner

This sunny but cozy 3 bedroom/2 bath cottage is just the spot for a get-away on your own, with other couples/friends, or with big and small familie! Just steps from the water and nestled on a country-like acre in a surprisingly convenient corner of the Chesapeake Bay, this unique, quiet, scenic spot is just over 20 minutes south of Annapolis and 45 minutes from Wash DC, Alexandria VA, or Baltimore. Our Flat next door creates even more space if you need extra accommodations.

Couples, groups, or families can easily converge here right after work on any given afternoon, and travelers can use it as a relaxing waterfront 'home' while you're touring the area. After a quick trip from these cities or local airports, all you need to do upon check-in is the following:

* hang out and chat or snooze under the large shady trees,

* swing or kayak or yoga to your heart's content,

* play Frisbee, football, soccer w/ your dog, friends, or kids,

* read or work on your tan as you gaze at the water,

* cook out, cook in, or pick crabs at a table on the lawn,

* savor the nearby waterfront dining,

* cozy up, watch DVDs, or play games by a wood fire.

Or just settle in to the pace of the birds and the bay breeze for a week or two. :-) With a washer/dryer, 2-car garage, BBQ, and full galley kitchen, it's all right here--complete with view.

Despite it's country-like location (no street lights--only stars!), all the services you need are within minutes, including 4 quiet little burbs (Deale, Galesville, Shadyside, Churchton) with

*a great grocery store,

*'famous' consignment shops,

*fishing boat excursions,

*fitness club or Bay history museums,

*little walks, drives, and sights,

AND

*lots of waterfront and other dining options--whether you want a casual crab-picking feast with live music, carryout sushi/pizza, or a long romantic dinner.

Nearby historic Annapolis is also full of great sights, shops, and restaurants, as well as movies and the mall (but people just don't seem to care as much about those things when they're here!)

As your host, I have been sharing my lovely place next door for over 2 years with the greatest crew of happy guests (see reviews of Flat and Cottage), who have been so much fun to host (See reviews below for 'Lovely Chesapeake Waterfront Flat', since the cottage has only had a few!). Since many are return guests who would like to come back with their couple friends, their kids, or their dogs, I decided to jump on the opportunity to buy the cottage next door!!!.

We set a nice low price for this solid little stucco cottage until folks get to know it's here, and because we will continue making it better and better over time! So far, everyone has LOVED it, and one couple is bringing their extended family back for Thanksgiving after their first visit less than one month earlier.

This bright yet cozy cottage has a queen-sized bedroom that shares a charming tub/shower with the room that has a full sized bed. Then there is also another queen-sized bed in a room that is a bit more separate from the others, and has it's own small bath with shower only (with gorgeous new tile job and fixtures that we just finished in the renovation!). Finally, there is an L-shaped Ikea couch that easily becomes a queen-sized bed or huge chaise lounge, allowing the cottage to sleep a total of 8 (if the last 2 are OK to be in the living room).

There is charge for each person over 4. Bringing a dog incurs a basic charge of, plus per dog per night, added after your basic reservation request (contact me or see House Rules about doggie deposit).

Finally, if you need to add some space for more people, if the dates you want for the Cottage are booked, or if you're looking for a smaller, less expensive accommodation or romanitc get-away (often used as a honeymoon suite!), please check our other listing next door to the Cottage: Lovely Chesapeake Waterfront Flat Here you can also read more reviews of the Cottage and this Flat.
