St. Leonard house description

Wake up to beautiful Sunrises and a spectacular bay view from your own magnificent 800 sq.ft. Master Bedroom Suite with New King pillowtop therapedic bed, spa tub and steam shower. 2nd Bedroom, Queen bed with sliding glass doors to a large deck overlooking the bay. 3rd Bedroom, 2 twin beds with quiet Street views. 4th Bedroom, Queen bed, ground floor with 3rd bath adjacent to great room and kitchen, great for elderly and handicapped. Additional room, game room with pullout sofa, stereo, TV, Wii Sports and game table. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining...open to the great room , breakfast nook and main deck with 4 different eating areas, well equipped for cooking and has a JennAir gas range. Lush native vegetation provides a private setting for viewing Osprey, Bald Eagles, flocks of geese as they soar at eye level from the decks providing an impressive show 80 feet above the bay. The beach community is quiet, friendly and walkable with narrow streets and private beaches.


Community activities: The community of Long Beach has 3 beautiful sandy beaches for use by the residents and renters only. They have very gradual slopes and the waves are small compared to the ocean, making it very safe for children to swim, play and kayak.
We also have a very picturesque boat harbor in the middle of our community called Flag Harbor Yacht Haven with about 160 slips. You may bring your own boat and have it launched for the week , possibly rent a transient slip during your stay. You may get lucky and catch a fishing charter or just fish from the beach or jetty.
We also have a county owned nature park with beaches and trails adjacent to our community to the south called Flag Ponds Nature Park.
Or just sit back on the deck and watch ocean going ships navigate the bay to Baltimore or star gaze in this quiet, peaceful community by the bay.!

                            We selected this home for our 28th family reunion and were not at all disappointed – everything promised in the posting was there (and more), well maintained, and clean. I can’t imagine what I would have added to make our weekend more comfortable and accommodating – everything we could possibly need or want was right there. The layout of the home and deck is perfect for sitting in groups to talk or play games, or you can spread out and have some solitude to read or just relax. I loved that I could be with my family yet not feel like we were on top of each other all weekend. The kitchen is well equipped and the dining room table is big enough to accommodate seating for a large family. Our family ranged in age from 27 to 90 and this home suited everyone. The wireless internet access was a must for the 27 year old, the extensive cable channel listings were a must for the sports fans who needed to see the baseball playoffs, hockey and football, and my 90 year old mother actually bowled with the Wii. A short stroll down the street would take you to the beach area and I enjoyed jogging through the quiet neighborhood and surrounding area. There are restaurants and grocery stores just a short drive away. The owner was attentive, professional yet friendly, and accessible. I highly recommend this property if you want to feel confident that your vacation will be nothing less than wonderful.

                            Recommended for: Girls getaway, people with disabilities, age 55+, romantic getaway, families with young children, families with teenagers, sightseeing.

                            Manager response: Thank you for the great review. It's always nice to hear that our house, that we designed and built for our family in 2005, is being enjoyed by other families. We out-grew our home rather quickly when our daughters got married and moved out. We decided to move into a small cottage down the street and make our home into a vacation rental, so that other families can get together and enjoy our little beach community that we have been fortunate to call home since 1990. We have been in the business for 10 years and still enjoy meeting people from all over the country. Barby puts alot of energy into decorating the interior and exterior of the home...especially during the holidays! She is a Christmas Nut...we plan on putting pictures on the site showing the house during the holidays. We look forward providing you with a memorable getaway and will gladly share our local knowledge of the Chesapeake Bay area with you during your stay. Thanks...Jeff and Barby

                            We enjoyed a very relaxing and truly wonderful Thanksgiving stay and have nothing but good things to say about the property. It is lovely, well cared for, clean, comfortable and then... there's that view. Words can't express how breathtaking the wide expanse of the bay is each morning. Even in bad weather it was a fantastic sight and possibly the best "back yard" view we've ever seen! The owner and property manager were great to work with and we recommend the property highly.

                            We returned to this home for our family reunion. Once again, it everything as described in the posting and more – we could not have been more satisfied with the time we spent in this fabulous home. We love that the open concept kitchen / dining room / living room is spacious yet you don’t feel disconnected from people either. It’s so easy to feel completely at peace reading in the living room with others are cooking or playing games at the dining room table. Our family is very diverse in terms of interests and it’s typically difficult to accommodate everyone but this home has it all – cable, wireless internet, game room, large outdoor deck with plenty of comfortable furniture, picnic table in the back yard and the fully equipped kitchen – there is something for everyone to enjoy. Situated in a quiet neighborhood, you’ll have a gorgeous view of the water off either deck (there is a main deck and an upper level). You can easily walk to the beach and there are antique shops, a convenience store, beer/wine, etc. close by. Let me not forget to mention the master bedroom suite – it’s huge and has a spa tub and large walk-in shower. It’s extremely well appointed and I’m told the king bed was noticeably comfortable. We treated our daughter, son-in-law and 1 year old daughter to that room (it was our turn to select the room we wanted first so we gave it to them) where they set up a pack and play for our granddaughter. Talk about spoiled – they kept telling us how pampered and spoiled they felt. The owner was helpful and is very accessible if there are questions. I highly recommend this property – you won’t be disappointed. We plan to return and only wish our family reunion was more than once a year so we could come back more often.

                            Recommended for: Girls getaway, age 55+, adventure seekers, romantic getaway, families with young children, families with teenagers.

                            This was a beautiful, extremely comfortable house to stay in. Our group's ages ranged from 17 to 87 and everyone's needs were met. Things in the area we liked best: renting kayaks from Patuxent Adventure Center; hiking with our dogs at Flag Pond State Park; visiting Ann Marie Sculpture Garden on Solomons Island. Calvert Marine Museum was great too. Much Thanks to Jeff and Barby for being so gracious and helpful throughout our stay. And by the way, the two most interesting places we had dinner were CD's Cafe (Solomons) and Saphron (Prince Frederick)

                            The home is wonderful for a reunion of old friends. The rooms are spacious and there are many places to gather and catch up on old times! My sorority sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the house. Just one thought - the picture that shows that the house is steps from the beach is misleading. The beach is a short walk - about three blocks. The views from the back of the house are awe inspiring.

                            We had to change our travel plans for the Memorial Day weekend as a very last minute thing and how happy we were that we did! The house is simply unbelievable and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The property manager and the owner were absolutely wonderful and worked with us on such a late notice. My kids wanted us to move into this house. Thank you for providing such an experience for us! Loved the beach and the neighborhood"

                            We had a fabulous time. The house was very relaxing with gorgeous views from almost every room. Just as described!!! Short distance to supplies, restaurants and activities for all! Definitely recommend.

                            My hard working, busy DC family, stumbled upon this hidden treasure just an hour outside DC. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to relax in this large beautifully decorated home, enjoying the large steam shower, and spa tub, two decks with perfect views, in a quiet neighborhood with in walking distance from a private beach. The kids and the dog enjoyed taking morning walks on the beach searching for shark teeth. Additionally, we took a trip down to Solomon's Island and had a great time touring the light house and the Calvert County Maritime Museum ending our day with a relaxing dinner of Maryland Blue crabs in a resturant overlooking the bay. Another day we took a picnic lunch to one of the local parks where the kids played on the play ground and we all hiked the cliffs enjoying the beautiful views. I recommend you also take the opportunity to enjoy a quiet beach vacation in this beautiful home.

                            Osprey's Nest is a lovely home that you are certain to be comfortable in. The first floor is spacious and flows from kitchen with island to dining (comfortable for our family of 8) to sitting and then living room. The views are as advertised with great sight lines to the bay from inside the house as well as from upstairs and downstairs decks. The kitchen is well equipped with a good selection of utensils and cookware. This is important as you will be likely be preparing most of your meals - plan on traveling 20+ minutes for some chain restaurants like Ruby Tuesday or Applebys. There are non -chain restaurants to the south in the nice waterfront town of Solomon Island. There are plenty of sleeping options with 4 bedrooms as well as a den with a fold flat futon which really makes for a fifth bedroom option. The master bedroom was a real treat for us and is really a suite. It is really spacious and the shower bath area rivals any 5 star hotel. We found many nice day trip options nearby and especially liked the Annamarie Gardens, Calvert Marine Museum, Chestnut Land Trust hiking, Battlecreek Swamp, and the Jefferson-Patterson Museum and Park. Our kids also enjoyed nearby Flag Pond Park where they hunted for shark teeth. As described the nearest beach is about a 4-5 minute walk - it was always quiet. There is a parking pass if you prefer to drive and there are two other close community beaches within a few minutes driving. Overall, we had a very nice vacation. This is not a tourist area, the neighborhood is well maintained and appears to be to be comprised of private primary residences and vacation homes.

                            Thank you for the wonderful stay at the house. It could be summed up by the first words from my daughters as they entered the house, "SWEEEET!!!" The views from the house were spectacular. I woke up one morning and had to reach for my camera on the night stand to photograph one of the most beautiful sunrises that I have ever seen. I didn't even get out of my bed. The house is huge and just perfect for our family to get together in various activities. It was nice to have such a private area out the back of the house for gathering. The beds were so soft that my kids didn't want to leave. There are many extras in the house that are not listed on the web site. It would be too complicated to name them all. Thanks again for the making our summer trip a vacation that we will always remember.
