The BEST vintage Sears & Roebuck-type cottage in Annapolis! Charming, modern amenities & just plain sweet!

Park your car & stash your keys!! Located in a cul de sac community in the City's artsy Upper Eastport section of Annapolis, this quaint storybook 50s vintage cottage is a convenient, peaceful retreat that sleeps up to 8.

One block away are new $750,000 townhouses, $1.5 single family homes & many charming renovated bungalows & cozy waterman cottages, creating a wonderful mix of architecture & lifestyles in our walkable community.

A love of hosting guests begins with making your arrival easy. Off-load your belongings onto the screened porch (a great benefit during inclement weather). Then grab a beverage & unpack at your leisure.

The cottage is mindful of Key West & a blender is available to mix your favorite concoction that 'helps you hang on.' So, choose your own quaint, private conversation nook, listen to the quiet sounds of nature & get ready to make some new memories.

The screened summer porch has plenty of room to seat you & 12 of your people! A vintage, tin-top table seats 4; a green marble-top bistro table seats 2; a vintage round café table seats 2; &, a 60' round black wrought iron table seats 4 comfortably. There are wicker rockers & a padded lounge chair. Blue, Green & White dinner linens are available for your party! Seasonal linens are also available.

The living room, with its traditional leather sofa & chair may remind you of 'Papa' aka Earnest Hemingway. I've been told by many that the 6' antique wicker sofa with plush down-filled cushions is the perfect place to nap or simply relax.
Just steps from the cottage you have easy access to world-class restaurants, California-style tapas wine bar with outdoor patio, coffee houses, shops, salons, bookstores, U.S. Post Office, pharmacy & fitness centers. Walk 10-15 minutes(or ride the water taxi or free e-shuttle or bicycle rickshaw)to the Historic waterfront of Maryland's Capital City & GATE 1 of the U.S. Naval Academy.

Many Midshipman & Navy families have enjoyed this charming cottage during May Commission Week, June I-Day, September Plebe Parent Weekend, class reunions & other 'Go Navy' events. Boating enthusiasts & vendors walk to festivities during October's power & sailboat show weeks. Yacht clubs, restaurants, sailing schools & the United States Naval Academy are within an easy walk through quaint waterfront neighborhoods.
The shaded, secluded backyard with street-access & ample free parking is the perfect setting for a celebration. Pitch a tent and seat at least 20 people. Gourmet food, round tables with linen table cloths, flowers & music can all be arranged for you if you like. Stretch, play bocce ball or croquet, practice your golf swing & roast marshmallows- there are ample outdoor activities provided & plenty of room for kids of all ages.

Be cozy, casual & comfortable in this charming 50s vintage cottage built to accommodate the Army families then stationed at Camp Parole. Lovingly restored over a decade, featured are plantation shutters, oak floors, wainscoting & updated appliances within the Sears & Roebuck saltbox-style design.

The vintage 70s kitchen is conveniently located to the screened Summer porch via the bluestone path or through the adjoining den. The kitchen's high-top cafe table is an inviting place to sit & chat. In winter months, the porch is enclosed to create a sauna-like experience on sunny days.

The cottage has two flatscreen televisions with an ultimate FIOS package to help keep everyone informed & entertained. There are DVD players as well.

Invite friends to enjoy a cocktail & some conversation from the screened porch while contemplating the day's activities. There is ample space to hold a garden party too, with convenient backyard access. To keep the cook in the conversation, a gas grill can be wheeled from under the River Birch shade tree gathering place to the central outdoor activities. A garden umbrella creates a cozy atmosphere.

Overlooking expansive perennial gardens designed using Feng Shui principles & made Chesapeake Bay - friendly through a 'grass to garden' application, you will quickly feel stress melt away & a sense of contentment pervade your senses. The presence of a cottage dragon deems the property as especially protected..

During colder weather, cuddle outside around the wood-burning chimneia & enjoy toasting marshmallows, being 'one' with nature, the stars & the sounds of our bustling maritime city. The screened porch has heavy see-through vinyl applied over screens to help make the porch 3-season friendly. Vitality is marked by boat horns, cheering voices during Wednesday night regattas & the 'ding ding' of the Spa Creek drawbridge as sailboats pass through to the Chesapeake Bay. If you wake early enough you will hear the 'hut, hut' of the Mid-Shipmen following reville at the Naval Academy.

Enjoying the hospitality of others while traveling around the world & also former owner of the Philadelphia Bed & Breakfast Reservation Service, the owner has a passion for welcoming guests to Eastport & Annapolis. Her knowledge of Maryland's Capital City makes you feel at home immediately.

The cottage decor includes an eclectic collection of primitive furniture, unique collectibles & garden art that represent her love of cultures & their peoples.

Tucked under the cozy eaves, the 2nd floor, private romantic escape is fit for any Master. Wiggle your toes on the hand-hooked rug & float like a cloud on the down duvet. Rock away your stress & view the moon & stars through the skylight & enjoy the breeze from the gable window dreaming your dreamiest dreams. There is a flatscreen television, dressing room with ample closet space & adjoining makeup nook, too.

From the first floor den, a serene view of the perennial gardens can be seen relaxing from the plush queen-size Futon . The den transforms from a cozy sleeping area to a daytime activity space. A library is housed in the primitive green milk-paint book case, purchased in Utah at Robert Redford's Sundance Music Festival. Cuddle up with a good book or watch a DVD, listen to music or enjoy FIOS HD on a flatscreen TV! Board games and umbrellas are in the closet.

A comfortable double pull out sofa in the studio becomes private for sleeping. Two comfortable Ottoman rollaway beds are avail for sleeping, even on the screened 3-season porch when weather permits. Plush mattress toppers & cotton linens make these beds cozy & comfortable.

There are two bathrooms. The vintage one is on the first floor of the cottage & has both a tub & multi-jetted shower. The second one has a spa shower with floor to ceiling tile & heated floor.

For families with small children there is a new Ciao portable high chair & a pack n play available.

We accommodate dogs with an on-site dog crate that accommodates dogs up to 60 lbs. The backyard fence is 5' tall. Pets are welcomed inside with certain rules & well-disciplined owners. A pet fee applies.

The cottage is available year round & also available for short-term & long-term. We try to be as flexible as possible.

Hospitality awaits & welcomes you to a unique, personal opportunity to experience Annapolis, Maryland's Capital City!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Hanging on the living room wall is a hand-embroidered vintage sampler with the quotation of 'Let me live by the side of the road & be a friend to man.' The sampler depicts my love of hosting travelers. As the former owner of the Philadelphia B&B Reservation Service & co-author of The American Bed & Breakfast Cookbook, welcoming visitors is a real pleasure for me & simply the core of my being. I love to travel & enjoy making travel easy & fun for others. Living in this dynamic City by the Chesapeake Bay is refreshing & invigorating. The cottage has good bones & peaceful land. It is named 'Chi Rising,' which describes its positive energy, welcoming presence & solid, grounded feeling. Renovating Chi Rising inside & out presented the challenge of removing old materials & updating applications of paint, flooring & comfort amenities like ceiling fans & additional lighting. When removing two old flooring layers in the kitchen, I was rewarded with the pleasant surprise of 12' knotty pine plank floor boards, that add authentic charm to the cottage. The screened 3-season porch seats 10 for dinner. You can relax there & take a nap too, all while you become one with the beautiful gardens. Practicing 'green' while establishing perennial theme gardens with year-round seasonal color, texture & plants native to Maryland was a joy. Feng Shui principles & a 'grass to garden' design concept created harmony & a garden certified as 'Bay-Friendly' by the Maryland Cooperative Extension Office & as a National Wildlife Federation refuge. In the secluded backyard garden you can read a book, play bocce ball or contemplate your next adventure around town. There is room to practice yoga, toss a Nerf ball, & entertain friends & family. Oh & we're a short 10 minute walk to restaurant row & USNA & a 15 minute car ride to a vast sandy beach on the Chesapeake Bay! Visit & use all the spaces at Chi Rising. It is your home while you are here. Enjoy Eastport, downtown Annapolis & all that awaits.

Why the Owner Chose Annapolis:
Living in the heart of Eastport provides a stimulating lifestyle of cultural neighborhoods, bustling business enterprises & creative artisans & entrepreneurs. One word sums it up -- Location! All you need is within walking distance. Get in touch with the historic Maritime industry, get out on the Bay & taste a blue crab or two on an open deck somewhere on the water! This is what living is all about! Oh, & a very special adventure is a sunset sail on the Woodwinds-catch it at the Marriott back deck--be sure to reserve your spot. Visiting Annapolis during winter months? Bundle up & trek out to the back yard fire pit --warm blankets, wood & BBQ forks are provided. Walk to the Chart House or Carroll's Creek --each has a great bar with a floor-to ceiling fireplace overlooking the harbor -- get there early to get a seat! The vibe of life's excitement abounds in Maryland's Capital City! Enriched by the U.S. Naval Academy, St. John's College, several sailing schools, museums, artisan dens and diverse restaurants & pubs. Visit us and experience our spirit, our passion and all we have to offer here on the Chesapeake Bay! This is a City-inspected property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage is a great gathering place for friends. And, we love dogs! A fenced yard offers unbridled running room. Enjoy a cup of joe, host a graduation or wedding celebration or have a dinner party on the screened porch while watching cardinals, robins & squirrels going about their daily rituals of bathing & eating. Quite enjoyable. The 3-season screened porch beckons an afternoon nap & evokes memories & dreams of Key West. There is a blender available to whiz up your favorite concoction to help you hang on, too. And, there is seating for 12 for dinner! The cottage is partially handicapped accessible via two steps to the ground floor level 3-season screened porch. This cottage has a secluded yard that is fenced. When you arrive, park in front of the cottage & enter by walking through the lush cottage garden along the bluestone path & around to the 3-season screened porch. There you can stash your luggage, grab a beverage & unpack at your convenience. Unique to this cottage is charm! It is cozy, easy to live in & evokes relaxation. The gardens are 360 degrees around, so you can follow the sun or the moon & find a spot to gaze away. Inside, the cottage is filled with light & gentle, seasonal breezes that blow through wide windows. The cottage is a Sears & Roebuck-type model & was build in 1950. I renovated it myself & preserved the quaintness that adds to the charm. Furnishing are an eclectic collection gathered from antique barns & world-wide straw markets & antique curio shops. Juxtaposed to these is a traditional reproduction pine dining room table with hand-hewn spindle-back chairs. The cottage has all the modern trappings like flat screen televisions, f-a-s-t free wifi, & an extreme FIOS package with every channel. Did I mention FREE parking? Here the living is easy & fun. Book your visit with us and you will see!
