A truly unique and beautiful estate on the southwest tip of Kent Island, literally in the middle of Chesapeake Bay. Available as a summer rental for the first time in 2013, the guest reviews are worth reading. Amenities include 2.5 very private acres with 550 feet of private shoreline on two sides, a large sandy private beach and 2 stone jetties. Amazing wrap around Bay views go to the southern horizon, and for many miles from east through northwest. A six story light house is less than a mile offshore, marking the main ship channel to Baltimore, directly in front of the house.
The Point of It All was designed over 7 months then built over a year as a private resort for family and friends, with something for everyone. There are sweeping views of the Bay from all main rooms, 4 bedrooms and the guest apartment/game room.
Watch the ships go by or the kids in the pool from the 1st floor deck, two screen porches on the first floor, four balconies on the 2nd floor, or a chaise lounge by the pool. Stroll through large shade trees and wide expanses of lawn overlooking the Bay, or shoot baskets on your own basketball court. The kids will love the elevated play house and swing set.
Enjoy the beach, pool, water slide, heated spa with jets, basketball court, and dock. Read, tan and relax above the waves on three comfortable benches on the dock, or on chaise lounges by the pool, or just lay on the warm sand on the beach. Two stone jetties attract fish year round, so good fishing is within an easy cast -- and you can catch your own crabs from the dock.
During summer the prevailing breeze is from the south or southwest, sending cooler air from the Bay toward the house. The Bay side of the house faces southwest, toward the light house and ship channel, taking full advantage of the amazing views.
A stacked stone wood-burning FP, large flat screen TV, entertainment center and piano are in the living area of the Great Room. Three more gas FPs are in Bedroom 1 (Master), the Study, and Bedroom 6 (Guest Apartment/Game Room).
Bedroom 1 (Master) has a king. BRs 2,3,4 have Queens. BR 5 has two Single Bunks. BR 6 (Guest Apartment/Game Room) has a Queen pull-out Sofa plus a Double Bunk down with a Single Bunk up. All bedrooms and the Guest Apartment have flat screen TVs with digital HD cable.
There are 6 full baths. The Master Bath has a steam shower and large Bay view soaking tub with air jets.
Adjacent to the Bay front deck is a large pool, large heated spa with jets, diving board and water slide.
There is a large sandy beach and a dock with a boat lift, two jet ski lifts and davits -- so you can bring your boat and jet skis. An elevated Play House and swing set are attached to a huge maple tree. There is a large enclosed outdoor shower, gas grill, large heated & air-conditioned 2-car garage with large work bench, epoxy coated floor, lots of storage. In the northeast corner of the property you will find a basketball court.
HD cable TV, internet, WiFi and free telephone service within the USA are provided. Maid service including new linens, lawn service, & pool service are provided weekly.

Why be stuck in heavy traffic for 3 hours or more trying to reach the Atlantic beaches?
Instead, you could be relaxing on your own private beach a point in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. This truly is a paradise that offers something for everyone.
If you ever want to leave this beautiful place for lunch, dinner or for a day, The Point of It All is only :35 from City Dock in Annapolis, 1:15 from downtown Washington D.C., and 1:00 from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.
From here it is easy to explore Maryland's scenic Eastern Shore including quaint colonial towns like Easton, St. Michaels, Oxford and Chestertown. Visit the Chesapeake Bay Museum in St. Michaels, take the Oxford-Bellevue Ferry to Oxford, go antiquing around Chestertown and Galena, or shop at the nearby Queenstown Premium Outlets for many famous brands. Golf at the nearby Blue Heron or Queenstown Harbor courses.
After arriving at this uniquely beautiful family resort, you will soon decompress.
Regardless of their initial plans, most of our guests decide to spend most of their time on the property. Please read the reviews for guests’ comments on this phenomenon.
Active things to do without driving anywhere include swimming, soaking in the heated spa, windsurfing, boating, kayaking, fishing, playing basketball on the private court or volleyball on the lawn. Walk, run or use our bikes to check out beautiful farms, forests and water views along Kent Island's South Trail and Cross Island Trail.
Fishing is available from shore because two stone jetties attract rockfish (striped bass), bluefish, perch, croakers, and red drum. Charter fishing boats are available in nearby marinas. You can bring your own boat or jet ski and store them on electric lifts on the dock.
Those looking for piece and quiet will find this home to offer plenty of places where you can relax, read, or work on a tan -- while an ever-changing parade of huge ships, sailboats and wildlife pass by. Blue herons, Ospreys and Bald Eagles and a variety of waterfowl nest nearby and visit this point.
