Long Beach cottage description
Just steps from the Chesapeake Bay, this charming pet-friendly home features fabulous water views. Relax in the hot tub; lounge on the deck or unwind in the screened-in porch. For the adventurer, it’s a great spot for kayaking, fishing and canoeing.
The shaded back yard is perfect for a gathering of family and friends (and keeps Fido happy!).
Nestled in the wooded area of the Calvert Cliffs, the home’s close proximity to Flag Ponds Nature Park allows you to try your hand at fossil hunting. Sharks’ teeth and other Miocene fossils can be found along the park’s shoreline. Picnic tables are provided, so consider packing a lunch and spend the day hiking the trails, exploring the beaches, fishing or bird watching. Pets are welcome at the park.
Also close by is Jefferson Patterson Park, which features 500+ scenic acres along the Patuxent River, more than 70 identified archeological sites and is home to Maryland’s Archaeological Conservation Laboratory. Other features include a Native American village, farm exhibits and an interactive visitor center. For history buffs, the area was the site of several key battles during the War of 1812.
A few miles south is the popular Maryland destination of Solomons Island, home to the Calvert Marine Museum, AnnMarie Sculpture Garden, a boardwalk, popular seafood restaurants and charter fishing and sightseeing boats.
A town of just over 500 people, St. Leonard features quaint shops and retains a “small-town feel.”
Fun fact: The opening scene in Clint Eastwood’s “In the Line of Fire” was filmed just a few blocks away from the home at the Flag Harbor Yacht Haven.

ReviewsWrite a review
I wrote the property manager, Phyllis, that I was going to write a review very reluctantly. I'm saying reluctantly bc my fiance and I enjoyed our time there so thoroughly, that we hate the idea of sharing our find with anyone else. But in true altruistic fashion, the cottage really is even lovelier than the pictures show. It's very spacious, you can feel the ocean breeze when you open the windows, and the hot tub was the perfect morning, afternoon, and night time retreat. The bay is right down two blocks, and there's a small private beach there that makes you feel like you are a world away from the hussle and bussle of nearby D.C and northern VA. Be sure to stop for groceries on the way if you're coming from up north. There's a Safeway, Giant, Peebles, and KMart superstore about 10-12 miles away from the cottage, and make sure you grab stuff to grill. We BBQ'd, we hot-tubbed, I even went in the bay (it's a little chilly this time of year, but very refreshing), and for the price I can't imagine why stay anywhere else. Hoping to get back there ASAP!
