Annapolis cottage description

Cozy, comfortable new cottage on 135-acre farm in Annapolis, Maryland available for short or long-term stays. Perfect for individuals, couples or families seeking a convenient and wonderful getaway. The cottage is on a one-acre lot quite separate from the other homes on the farm.

This is a very special home on one of the largest pieces of privately-owned conservation land in Maryland, with a wealth of wildlife and gorgeous views of the water, woods, and fields. You will feel rejuvenated and relaxed after a stay here-- relax by the fire, go for walks or runs in the woods, sleep soundly in the great beds. (Or, if you have to, you can work on your laptop with the free wireless internet.) It feels like a real getaway while being so close to town.

Renters are given access to the farm trails and creek: perfect for hiking, jogging, fishing, kayaking (bring your own), cross country skiing. Only 10 minutes to downtown Annapolis, 45 minutes to Washington DC and 35 minutes to Baltimore. Perfect base for visiting historic downtown Annapolis, the US Naval Academy, and St. John's College; for shopping at the malls and outlets; and for making day trips to the Eastern Shore, Baltimore museums, and Washington sightseeing. Sandy Point State Park beach and playground are 4 miles away. Only 10 minutes to Anne Arundel Medical Center, if needed!

The cottage has a full modern kitchen, washer/dryer, fireplace and plenty of firewood, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, office nook. Queen bed in one bedroom, two twin beds in the second, queen Pottery Barn sleep sofa in downstairs living area and one single cot. The large deck has a charcoal grill and outdoor furniture. The living and eating areas have beautiful new wood floors and a wall of windows facing the woods and the creek beyond.

Great for all ages, baby and child equipment available (high chair, pack-n-play, children's plates/cups/cutlery). Forced air heat and central AC. Verizon FIOS TV and wireless internet included.

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About: Our family has been in Annapolis for four generations.

                  Why Annapolis:
                  This farm has been in our family for years. It's a peaceful place to relax, but close to our jobs and schools in the city. We've enjoyed making Chestnut House into a cozy place for getaways and holidays. The gorgeous wood flooring is made from trees that fell on the property. We also have sheep and border collies and chickens on the farm.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  By renting this cottage, which is placed on a one acre plot quite separate and private from the other farm houses, you are also given access to the surrounding farm and woods owned by our family. While we ask renters to be respectful of this property and the wildlife on it, it is an amazing and unique place that we'd love to share with you.
