Waterfront retreat only 1 hour 15 minutes drive from the center of Washington, DC near historic Solomons Island, Maryland, where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Patuxent River. Enjoy spectacular views from nearly every room of the beautifully-renovated historic farmhouse on a seven-acre estate on the water. Sip lemonade from rocking chairs on the porch and soak in the gorgeous sunsets over Patuxent River, fall asleep in the hammock, or tuck yourself away with a book anywhere on the grounds surrounded by the water. Do not be alarmed by the plentiful deer, turtles, rabbits, ducks, bald eagles, ospreys, and other small wildlife that may pay you a quiet visit. Swim at the private beach, fish and crab, enjoy boating/sailing/kayaking and all sorts of water sports, take a walk along the many public beaches, boardwalks, marinas and nature trails in the area. Admire the historic tobacco barns and organic farms, visit farmers markets, historic landmarks and Amish communities in Saint Mary’s County, and try the cuisine at the multiple seafood restaurants on Solomon’s Island. There are also plenty of museums including Annemarie Sculpture Garden and Calvert Marine Museum and diversions such as mini-golf, bowling, golf and tennis in the area. Arts and crafts festivals also abound.
