This house is a gem. It sits it on a heavily wooded lot overlooking the Rhode River. The setting is uniquely peaceful because the opposite shore is a YMCA retreat. There is ample seating and deck space outdoors to enjoy the view. Common areas are very comfortable, as are the bedrooms. The kitchen is huge, with two double sinks and spacious counters for food prep; and it is laid out in a way that is very easy to use. There are lots of indoor and outdoor games as well as paddle craft to play with, and easy access to county parks and historic Annapolis. The owner is incredibly helpful and informative about the house, as well as nearby sights and attractions. We had a terrific time!”
Great house in beautiful location! We enjoyed the stay immensely. ”
Top notch treehouse--
A beautiful house on a gorgeous piece of property . The host could not have been more considerate and helpful. The use of kayaks at sunrise was an unforgettable experience . We also enjoyed a dinner at The Pirates Cove on our hosts recommendation .”
Peaceful retreat with boat access
Our family had a lovely late summer stay in this attractive and peaceful house on a quiet creek of the Chesapeake Bay. The decor and furnishings are handsome and in keeping with the modern architecture, and the house is very well equipped. The landscaping and extensive tree canopy are beautiful; neighbors and even a large marina are close by but you are not aware of them. The private dock allowed us to rent a boat (via Boatsetters) for the week for visits to nearby dockside restaurants, cruising and just anchoring up in a quiet cove. Our host, Paul, was terrific; he responded promptly to our inquiries, made fun toys at the house like kayaks and corn hole accessible to us, and even provided charts with his notes on the nearby waterways. Highly recommended. We hope to return.”
Wonderful water views
Scott’s design forward house with glass walls sits on a fabulous spot with wonderful water views on several sides. The clever landscaping provides a cover from houses and the marina nearby. It was a perfect coronavirus getaway separated from the house nearby. And Scott was a wonderful host, quickly responding to our questions. The only issue was the sun was so strong on one side that a lovely room was unusable.”
''This house is architecturally unique and attractively furnishinged. The views are spectacular. It sits on a beautifully landscaped wooded lot that makes you feel like you're all alone yet the house is located in a developed area outside of Annapolis MD. The land surrounding the cove is all woods, so you don't see other houses unless you look to the side, which increases your sense of isolation. The one thing we missed was TV and WiFi. Living in "interesting times", we're glued to the news.”
Perfect water front location for small family get away
We enjoyed this place very much during the July 4th week with our two grandsons, Daughter & son-in-law !! We kayaked up & down Rhode river and rented a boat, visited D.C. monuments and Smithsonian, had a Crab dinner at a local spot, watched the fireworks, visited Annapolis etc. plenty of things to share with family, had a wonderful family vacation !! House is very nice & comfortable, well equipped and great water front location. Thank you so much Scott & family !! ”
A perfect getaway
The home is beautiful--bright, open, and architecturally interesting. The location and views are hard to beat. This home is in a quiet sleepy neighborhood but easily accessible to Annapolis, Washington, DC and Baltimore. It is much larger than it looks on the website. My sister and I took our kids for the week and there was something for all of us. Fishing, kayaking, crabbing, long walks, short trips to town. Highly recommended!”
