Property description

Ber Na Mara (Na Mara: at the sea) offers you relaxed, luxury beach living in a secluded and private beach community. Who would believe it's only 2 hours from Washington...and no Bay Bridge. With expansive decks and lots of glass, Ber Na Mara sits so close to the Chesapeake Bay, you might be on a boat, not in a house.

Kayak on the Bay, Relax on the deck, Cook in the fully-equipped kitchen, enjoy the herons, ospreys, pelicans and other wildlife or just fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Rich in history, close to nature and surrounded by water. Something for everyone. Not a boardwalk - this is a place to escape, unwind and enjoy family, friends or walking the beach in solitude. Great in winter too, complete with a gas fireplace.

Ber Na Mara has been taken down to the studs and totally rebuilt in beach luxury. Meaning, style that still lets you put your feet up! The main level kitchen is open to the dining and living areas. Two bedrooms with queen beds and one bathroom complete that level. The upper level is an amazing private master bedroom suite with its own deck (and bath). A garage, utility room with washer and dryer and a recreation room are located on the lower level.

Having a family reunion or large get-together? No problem, since we offer 2 other beach houses within steps (252098 and 394281) plus 4 additional properties in the next beach south (2 'blocks' by the beach route). Those vrbo properties are: 208680, 394464, 408472 and homeaway908053.

Summer=beach and water sports. But, winter at the beach is nothing less than mesmerizing. The views, the waves crashing in the background and walks on a beach that seems like it's yours alone. Fires. Fall stays warmer longer with the still balmy Bay beside it. And, who can resist the first days of Spring with the sun glistening on the water?

A getaway for every season. Relax, unwind, enjoy family and friends at Ber Na Mara on the Chesapeake Bay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Growing up in Oklahoma, I still managed to spend every summer day at Twilight Beach - a man-made beach and pool that was heaven to me. So, it was only natural that I would fall in love with the beach when I moved to Washington, D.C. after graduating from Baylor. Hays Beach combines the best of nature and the water. And, who knew you could find such a place less than 2 hours from Washington?

Why the Owner Chose Scotland:
Magnificent views of the Chesapeake Bay, beautiful forested land, amazing wildlife...and no Bay Bridge. I love the water and native landscaping, so this ares is perfect for me. What is not to like?

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Looks east to the Chesapeake Bay for sunrise or look west to the forest for sunset - it's a two-for-one setting. Hop in a kayak and paddle the Bay or the secluded Deep Creek (which is not deep but is secluded, peaceful and full of wildlife - no motor boats).
