Property description

You'll fall in love with 'The River Moon Cottage' situated on the shores of the Potomac River just as I did some 30 years ago when I bought the home. The relaxing feel of the home and furnishings will allow you to sink into over-stuffed sofas and unbelievably cozy, soft beds. It's a complete unwinding from the fast-paced world and you will feel it the minute you step into the cottage. The wrap-around porches and sunroom with a 6-mile view to Southern Maryland will help you relax and enjoy your favorite foods and beverages. Forget the tanning salons! Bring your lounge chairs and get a real tan out in the spacious yard with that gentle breeze off the river. After relaxing, you may want to challenge the kids to a round of basketball or 'horse' on our cement court. Ball provided or bring your own. The restored home is big enough so everybody can spread out and have their own space. Turn your busy cell phones and glaring lap tops off and drift into quiet. After staying here, you won't want to go home. Let me provide you with a cozy, relaxing home-away-from-home to spend your vacation here and really unwind. You won't regret it!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: After living in College Park, Md for 4 years, my husband and I were looking for an new adventure away from the city. We found out about Colonial Beach from a friend and never looked back. We bought the house, ran a transportation business, raised a son, owned a party store with my sister, husband retired, divorced, and got my real estate license. That all took 30 years and here I am. I still love my riverside home and have had many holidays and family come to enjoy it. I miss that. Now I want to share my 'little piece of Heaven' with you. I know you will appreciate it as much as I have all these years.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Peaceful, beautiful scenic views, slow-paced life.
