Colonial Beach house description

Located in colonial beach on the point, the Do Drop Inn is a year round 3 bedroom, 2 full bath home located on the water front of monroe bay. The views are amazing - from beautiful sunrises, through all day cloud watching along with checking out the action on the water in and out of the channel and marinas, to glorious sunsets, moon rises and then to look up to see how close the stars and planets are while gazing at constellations you haven't even noticed before. The Do Drop Inn is the best place to watch storms, but yet be protected.

The layout and warmth of this 1,600 + square foot home with a 336 square foot deck balcony is just a bonus to the excellent views, relaxing atmosphere and local activities.

The master bedroom suite has a grand view of the water and sunrises and includes a king size bed and cable television. The private master bath includes both a jacuzzi tub and a shower, which the optional wall heater makes nice and cozy. The guest bedroom has a queen size bed with a private door into the full hall bath. The den or third bedroom has a fantastic view of the water along with sunrises and sunsets and includes a trundle bed with 2 twin mattresses, a tv with dvd player and shares the hall bath. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan and wonderful windows which brings the outside in. All linens and towels are provided.

The living room makes you feel like you are living on the water with a set of andersen double sliding glass doors opening onto the 12'x28' wide deck with a sunsetter remote control sun shade awning. The cathedral ceiling has two ceiling fans and there is a wood burning fireplace. There is a 45' television with cable tv and a wii. There are several desk work areas if you do need to telework. A large mirrored wall makes the space feel even larger. Nautical decorations, a collection of local sharks teeth and other fossils along with a glass collection, all enhanced with the 'by the water' living environment. The wood burning fireplace is a wonderful addition throughout the winter months with an ample supply of firewood in close proximity.

All three bedrooms, the hallways and the great room are carpeted with an off white light beige cut pile. The kitchen and bathrooms have vinyl tile floors. All walls are painted white. All doors and frames and window frames are wood finished in a medium oak stain. The mix of mirrors, lots of window and the skylight provide ample natural light throughout the house. Therefore, all spaces are light and airy, but feel warm and luxurious.

The table space kitchen is open to the living room for full entertaining interaction. You can even watch sunset over the water out the kitchen windows at the table, which seats 6. An adjoining 'mud' room sports the mini bar with sink where the full size washer and dryer are tucked away. The kitchen is supplied with more than enough pots, pans, dishes, glasses, silverware and counter top appliances such as microwave, coffee pot, food blender, toaster, etc.

Enjoy your coffee on the deck while watching all the birds and wildlife which includes eagles, ospreys, great blue herons, swans, ducks, geese, cormorants, king fishers, sterlings, etc. Have an adult beverage or two and you might wonder if you really are seeing a ground hog coming up over the seawall or not (by the way, his name is George).

The side yard is very large and is fenced for the dogs and kids to run around in. Grab a football, volleyball, badminton or corn hole game and just hang outside. Grab a fishing rod and go down on the dock to fish, or crab, kayak, canoe, or just row the dinghy around the cove, all at your own risk of course. Make sure to wear the life vests.

The firepit area is a wonderful place to hang out to keep the chill off on spring or fall evenings. Fireworks can be seen throughout the summer season not only in town, but from the water side view out of the Do Drop Inn over Monroe Bay. The neighbors are nice, but the property has privacy and a large yard and is wider then typical house lots, so you don't feel confined nor on top of he neighbors.

You can walk or ride your bicycle into town in minutes to the gourmet markets and variety of restaurants and great shops or to the long stretch of sandy beach all along the Potomac River. Up the street and around the point is a great 5k run. The fun aspect of being on 'The Point' is riding a golf cart all around town and don't forget to wave, most everyone waves and is smiling. The usual hand wave off the steering wheel is the classic for Colonial Beach locals.

The Do Drop Inn is both children and pet friendly. All liability is yours. The property has its own private dock and is truly waterfront. Typically in Colonial Beach waterfront is water view as you are across the street. The Do Drop in is literally by and on the water. The private dock offers ample slip space with 30 or 50 amp power. There are two boat lifts and one jet ski lift. There is a floating dock for the kayak, canoe or laser sailboat. Wear your water shoes to protect your feet as their are a lot of oyster shells on Winkidoodle Point.

Lafayette Street used to be named Boat Lane. The Street is more of an usual street on 'The Point' as it dead end at Curley's Oyster House, Monroe Bay Marina and Winkidoodle Point Marina. Sitting on the deck you can see part of the older marina, but the winds blow through the sailboats and you can hear the soft clanging of the sailboat lanyards in the distance. Quite the get away but the socialization is right out the front door. Or is the front yard the waterfront and the street side is the back door? You decide.

          Owner info

          Why the Owner Chose Colonial Beach:
          Come and visit and you will find out why.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Living by the water (or on the water) relaxes you like nothing else. The extra large lot puts you a nicer distance away from the neighbors creating a bit more privacy than a typical lot size.
