Cove Point cottage

October 7, 2014

My husband & I stayed at this very private & lovely cottage. It was only minutes to the bay (walking distance) & there was also the nearby attractions (battle creek cypress swamp) & Flag Ponds state park. The cottage is more beautiful than the photos & quiet. The owners of the cottage were so friendly on the phone & very accommodating. We would definitely rent this again & possibly stay an extra 2 days as we did not get to see everything we wanted. We didn't have enough time to search for shark's teeth, but the beaches were so relaxing. I also recommend the Ruddy duck restaurant, but get there early! We ate in the cottage the rest of the time.

A Wonderful Place ...

August 5, 2013

We, a family of five, stayed for 5 days at the end of July. The place met all our expectations, and more. The communication with Dan before the trip was excellent which greatly helped us preparing for the trip. The pictures on this website don't do justice to how wonderful this place is! (Dan, you need a new picture for your house :) and I'll be glad to give you the pictures of the house we took) The inside of the house is very spacious and well stocked with essentials both in the bedrooms and in the kitchen. The sun room is amazing, we spent most "down" time in there. The yard is well maintained, and I believe was cut the day we got there. Solomon Island is but 10 min drive away, and the restaurants there are excellent. Be sure to visit Kingfisher! We also visited museums and art centers. Beach is only a few minutes walk away, and barely any people there when we were there. The only "problem" was the amount of jellyfish in the water. Dan did warn me the existence of them, but I just didn't expect the amount of them! On the third day we caught a low tide time and the bay was really quiet, that's when I saw how many jellyfish there are in the water, especially near the shore - you can hardly walk 10 feet without encounter one. Maybe it's just bad timing, but late summer is indeed the prime season for jellyfish, I later learned. Although they are the small kind, and the sting is more annoying than causing serious injuries, they pretty much prevented us from entering water at all. The first two days I entered the water, I got stung 5 and 3 times, respectively. They hurt a little and are itchy for about 10 minutes, then subsided, then completely gone the next day. Still, they are annoying, and all kids never got to enter the water, but they had good time on the beach nonetheless. I'll highly recommend this place to anyone, especially the whole family, who's looking for a quiet place to stay and relax ... unless swimming and playing in the bay is very important to you, then you need to prepare for the jellyfish. I learned that you can actually buy jellyfish repelling lotions online. Overall, this is a very good vacation for all of us, and a very nice place to stay, despite the jellyfish. We all had a wonderful time.

Great cozy rental

March 24, 2013

The cottage rental in Cove Point was exactly what I needed during my stay in Maryland! The cottage is cozy enough for one person, though it can obviously accomodate many more. Everything I needed to be comfortable was there in the rental, and it was a short walk to the beach to collect sharks teeth. The owners were incredibly friendly and pleasant to deal with. I would stay again if I am in the area! Thanks, Dan and Yolanda :-)

Great Family Getaway

October 26, 2012

My son is at school in DC, and my husband, daughter and I came to visit him from Colorado. We decided to take a road trip to explore the area, so I rented this "cottage" for the weekend. It's a great little house, very welcoming and comfortable. We fell in love with the sunroom, where we spent a good deal of time reading, eating and carving pumpkins. We walked down the lane to the beach and explored in both directions, searching for sharks' teeth and enjoying the incredible weather. It was also an easy drive south to Solomons, where we rented a boat and spent a fun hour on the Patuxent River. There are trails nearby and plenty of activities within easy driving distance. We could happily have spent a few more days wandering around and pretending we had no responsibilities in the outside world. We'd come back in a heartbeat!

Great house

August 27, 2012

The house was exactly what we hoped it would be. It was comfortable and very well equipped. We would definitely stay there again. As soon as we got there we decided to ask for one more night and luckily it was available. The beach is so private, we had it all to ourselves!

Great Place and Great Owner!!

My husband rented this cottage for 3 months while we were relocating to MD from WI. The cottage is clean and it has everything you will need. The owner has gone out of his way to accommodate us. Would definitely recommend renting this. Also it is only 2 blocks from the beach!! It is great!!

The cottage was quaint with a large sunporch and deck. It was clean and well kept. We spent many hours on the sunporch, deck and in the large backyard. t dinner time we enjoyed the deer visiting the backyard. It was a short walk to the beach which was convient and the beach was never crowded. We rented the cottage while visiting my son who is stationed at Pax River Navy Base. It was a short commute to the base which was great. The grandchildren got to visit us and had plenty of room outside and at the beach to play. My daughter in law like it so much she is recommending it to other military families who have visiting guest. We probably would stay there again.

Beautiful and comfortable

July 28, 2011

We stayed for 5 days during an intense heat/humidity spell. The cottage is beautifully appointed and has a relaxed feeling at the same time. The combination of air conditioning, dehumudifier and ceiling fans worked to keep us comfortable. The large sun room at the back of the house was ideal for visiting with family and sharing meals. Kitchen had everything we needed in terms of appliances and utensils. The yard was a plus for the children -- younger and older and the walk to the beach really was short! If we were to visit this part of Maryland again we would definitely contact the owners about a return visit.

wonderful owners

July 15, 2011

We had plans to stay at this beautiful cottage but they fell through. Even though we didn't stay there, I wanted to leave a positive review because the owners were a pleasure to deal with, very honest, helpful, and prompt in responding to emails. We're looking forward to another chance to enjoy the cottage.

Nice getaway

June 21, 2011

Upon our arrival at the cottage, we immediately decided to stay an additional day. The home is cute and inviting, even nicer in person than the photos can portray. The modern appliances, including the washer and dryer, made our stay that much better. The neighborhood is lovely, the neighbors are kind and you can hear the waves from the Chesapeake Bay inside the home if you open the windows. After surveying the area, this home is one of the nicest rentals around. Should I return to the area for another stay, I would gladly rent this home again.

Home Away From Home

We were very pleased with this lovely rental. Comfortably decorated and clean, the house had all the necessities we could have needed. Beautifully bright enclosed sunroom perfect for relaxing with a good read. Just a short walk to a beach loaded with beachcombing finds. Owner is pleasant to deal with and we had no complaints whatsoever. Would happily stay again.
