Scotland house description

Summerlee awaits you (5 bedrooms, 5 baths total). This classic beach house has been fully renovated and luxuriously appointed. The house features an open floor plan for easy entertaining. Situated directly on Chesapeake, hear the waves while you cook, read or relax; see diverse wildlife including, herons, swans, ospreys, bald eagles, and pelicans through expansive glass doors, from the screened-in porch, the wrap-around deck or the large deck off the master bedroom. Or, grab a beach chair or towel and head for the private sandy beach. The open floor plan, complete with a large kitchen, dining room, 2 sitting rooms and a TV room allows a large family or group to be together whether cooking, playing games, watching television or just relaxing. A crackling fire in the wood burning fireplace makes winter days at Summerlee as enticing as summer days. Enjoy a weekend wine tasting at nearby Woodlawn plantation - Slack wines dot com.

A short-bike ride away is Point Lookout State Park, a Civil War site. Today the park, which is located at the intersection of the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River, hosts miles of protected land set aside for biking, kayaking, boating, fishing, camping or enjoying nature as well as a museum that provides a historical perspective on the region. Or charter a boat at one of many local marinas for a day of fishing on the Bay. Another nearby historical site is St. Mary's City (10 miles), the original capital of Maryland. Visitors are 25 minutes from dining and shopping on Solomon's Island or in historic Leonardtown. Or enjoy one of several local marina restaurants. Want a day trip away? All that the nation's capital has to offer is a short 80 miles away.

Collect shells and beach glass while walking uninterrupted for miles along the sandy beach. Unlike typical cheek-by-jowl beach houses, Summerlee offer its visitors bayfront accommodations on an acre of land. Enjoy rare waterfront privacy so close to major cities and amenities.

                            We planned a trip for 4 couples, for which this house was absolutely perfect. Each couple had their own queen-sized bed and private bathroom. One single friend who came along got the room with 2 twin beds and also his private bathroom. We went for a run around the trails nearby the house, where we saw deer. One couple borrowed the bikes that come with the house and went biking. Many of us also went out kayaking -- there are 2 single-person kayaks that come with the house and the property managers brought us 2 additional single-person kayaks so that more people could go out at the same time. You can kayak to an estuary very near the house on the Chesapeake bay that leads to a few small lakes with lots of herons and other fishing birds which was really cool to see. We also got 100 oysters, and even though only 1 person in our group had shucked an oyster, the owner of the oyster-farm came, brought shucking equipment, and taught us how to shuck oysters safely. It was a TON of fun, and the oysters were some of the best I've ever had. Finally, we spent the evenings cooking and grilling on the BBQ (also comes with the house), sitting around the fireplace, and staring at the stars on the small private beach. It was a perfect weekend getaway - just enough privacy for each couple, but also a lot of fun stuff to do as a group.

                            Summerlee is a beautiful, wonderfully decorated, house that had everything you could possibly ask for. We loved the fireplace, the kayaks and the gourmet kitchen! Dinners were spent with amazing sunsets and the mornings were filled with walks along the beach. Our dogs didn't want to leave!

                            Had a blast here with my friends and family over the holiday weekend!! Catching and grilling fresh bluefish off the private beach made the whole weekend for me. I will definitely be back every year!

                            This is the second year my giant family has stayed at Summerlee and four neighboring homes for a long weekend. We love it there. The house is perfectly lovely, beautifully maintained and well stocked for cooking and serving. There are several sizeable gathering places in the house, so we never felt like we were on top of each other. Additionally, though the house is situated in a very quiet Scotland, there is plenty to do to entertain a range of ages and interests. We enjoyed an easy bike ride to Point Lookout, long walks along the beach and a fun happy hour at Buzzy's! I can't wait to go back to Summerlee for a girls' getaway!

                            My group of 12 friends stayed at the house for a weekend. The house is perfect. Everyone had enough room and the views were to die for. Wish we would have stayed longer. Everything looks better in person than on the pics, which is hard to believe. Great Vacation!

                            Everything about this house is 5 stars! From the luxury of the furniture, the quality of the mattresses , the amazing service - they even give you fresh clean beach and linen towels! Detergent! Shampoo! It was like staying in a 5 stars hotel - but with an ocean front view and the space of a house! Every room had a bathroom- which is a plus! - the view, the eagles! The kayaks - we would definitely come back next year for more than a week!

                            We had the best time at this beautiful home! It was the perfect getaway for a ladies weekend. The ladies loved that each bedroom had it's own bathroom as well. The views were beautiful and the house was well cared for. The weekend came to an end far to fast. We will defintely visit again next year. The owner was also very helpful/friendly with all of our questions and very accommodating. We also enjoyed some of the places that were on the welcome letter, especially meeting some of the locals at Buzzy's store. Thanks for a great trip!!!

                            We had a wonderful family Christmas at Summerlee. For my husband and I, it was a second visit. For the others it was their first. We had spoken so highly of the beach home and it certainly lived up to the high standard previously set. It had everything needed for a relaxing, family visit. There was even a set of Mexican Train Dominoes! The fireplace was delightful and the logs stacked up were wonderful! We would like to return in the Spring of Fall to enjoy the sunroom. Thanks for a memorable stay.

                            We enjoyed another wonderful stay at the Summerlee over the Thanksgiving holiday. The house is perfect, great layout, and everyone had their own private bath. The view from the dining area is breath taking, watching the sunrise over the water is beautiful. Our family enjoyed games in front of the fireplace, walks on the beach in search of treasures and even used the kayak’s to explore the pond. The majestic Eagles were spotted several times during our stay. Can’t say enough great things about our stay, hope to return soon!

                            Wir fanden das Haus bei unserer Suche nach einer schönen Unterkunft in der Nähe Washingtons. Sowohl das Haus als auch die Lage übertrafen unsere Erwartungen. Die Angaben im Online-Inserat entsprechen voll der Realität, aber vom herrlichen Blick, der geschmackvollen Einrichtung und der Ruhe waren wir dennoch angenehm überrascht. Wir waren nur zu zweit, aber auch für zwei Paare oder eine große Familie ist das Haus gut ausgestattet. Maryland ist sicher kein bevorzugtes Reiseziel für Europäer, aber nach Kunstfreuden in Philadelphia und Washington war es für uns perfekt, eine Woche zu entspannen und die friedliche Gegend mit vielen historischen Highlights wie Mary's City und Annapolis zu erkunden. Für Naturfreunde gibt es erstaunlich viele schöne State Parks. Es gibt im Haus reichlich Informationen zur näheren Umgebung, zu Attraktionen der Gegend und zu empfehlenswerten Restaurants. Der Kontakt zur Vermieterin hat immer gut funktioniert. Das Haus an sich ist eigentlich schon die Reise an die Chesapeake Bay wert und kann nicht nur Freunden empfohlen werden. Thank you, Peggy!

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Love urban life; also, love the isolated beach with amazing wildlife. Scotland is a welcome retreat from hectic city life.

                          Why the Owner Chose Scotland:
                          Scotland is a rare find. Rarely do you find an area that begins with beautiful forests and opens up onto fabulous beaches. Little traffic but only 2 hours from Washington or Baltimore. I discovered a jewel.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Sunrise over the Bay with morning coffee is heavenly. Walks on the beach. Take a 30 minute kayak ride or a 5 hours one - very convenient out the front door. Enjoy a tasting of good quality local wines at beautiful Woodlawn plantation just 10 miles away.
