Annapolis house description

This Annapolis area home provides a stunning 180-degree view of the South River, just off the Chesapeake Bay near Annapolis.

Just six miles from downtown Annapolis, the location of the house is incredible. It feels 'away from it all' but a quick drive takes you to the United States Naval Academy, shopping, restaurants, movies, the Annapolis Mall and other major conveniences. A 40-minute drive or Metro ride take you to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore. The house is located in a quaint, quiet neighborhood - perfect for evening strolls or morning walks.

You'll love the five-minute walk (or boat ride) to Mike's Restaurant and dining on steamed Chesapeake Bay blue crabs and drinking ice cold beer from the deck. The home is so peaceful and serene, you won't believe that it's just a quick jog from Route 50 and Baltimore/Washington International Airport.

The large entertainment deck overlooking the South River off the Chesapeake Bay is perfect for cookouts, relaxing with a good book, savoring your morning coffee or just gazing at the plentiful waterfowl. Stairs go down to your own private pier where you can swim, fish, crab and sunbathe. A boat lift is available, and there's plenty of room for others to dock on the pier. A community boat launch is also available.

The home is beautifully decorated with hardwood floors and open architecture. The fabulous view of the water can be seen from kitchen, dining room/living room, and the master bedroom.

This is a popular year-round vacation retreat so be sure to book early! This vacation rental is perfect for all Annapolis events, USNA events, class reunions, homecoming, Naval Academy football games and Washington Redskin or Baltimore Ravens football games, Annapolis boat shows, summer vacations, winter getaways and weddings. Studying for the bar or writing your thesis or novel? You can't find a better retreat.

                            We shared this home with our friends from California. It was a great place to call "home" while we visited Annapolis, Baltimore, and Washington DC. Our kids (all 5 of them) especially enjoyed fishing from the dock. We found the local tourguide information available in the home very useful. The reservation and check-in processes were simple to use and the owner was very responsive to questions we asked prior to our stay.

                            Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with teenagers, sightseeing, romantic getaway.

                            Owner response: It was a pleasure having you. I'm glad you found the check-in process easy-to-use, and I was happy to answer your questions along the way. Please keep us in mind for future visits to the area. As you discovered, it is a great "central location" for all of the wonderful destinations this area has to offer. Lynn

                            We LOVED the House- great location on the water and within 15 min drive of the Academy. Very warm, cozy house-open kitchen, living room, dining area was wonderful for our meal and social time together. The deck was the favorite for all of us but my parents, who came from Ohio to visit, especially loved the mornings-they ate breakfast out there every day. The weather was excellent so we were able to enjoy the deck every day we were there. We cooked all our meals there and the kitchen and grill were so great to have. Home is nicely decorate, bedrooms comfortable and roomy and best word to describe is "felt like home" and that is such a compliment when you travel. Our plebe loved being at the house with us during the day and eating home cooked meals- it was a great weekend and we will definitely rent this house again! Thanks so much for sharing your home!

                            Recommended for: Families with young children, girls getaway, age 55+, families with teenagers, sightseeing, romantic getaway.

                            Owner response: Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. It was a pleasure having you!

                            This home was exactly as pictured. Plenty of beds for a family of 8. Great place to crash at the end of busy days. We were able to tour Baltimore, Annapolis, DC and Ocean City as day trips from here. We ordered take out from Mike's Crabs as that was easier with our 6 children. Yummy! We knew that we may find jellyfish this time of year but was still disappointing that we could not swim more. The house was set for fun with fishing poles and swim tubes available. We did enjoy the new experience of crabbing. Watching the world outside the expansive windows was wonderful and so was enjoying many evening meals out on the deck. Thank you for this time away.

                            Recommended for: Families with young children, sightseeing.

                            Owner response: I'm very happy you and your family enjoyed your stay!

                            I just want to thank you for letting us rent your house in Maryland. It was a beautiful place. We really enjoyed staying there. It was great that you have the place well equipped with anything we might need during our stay. I also emjoyed the view overlooking the river, especially in the morning when the sun was coming up. It was amazing. If we are ever in need of a place to stay in Maryland again, I will sure give you a call.

                            I wanted to email you to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed your lovely home. My kids went crabbing and were screaming when they caught one! It was priceless. The house was so comfortable and very enjoyable. It was nice to come back to a quiet place after a day of visiting family. We would certainly think about renting again. Thank you again for allowing us to use your home!

                            We were pleasantly surprised at how nice your home was! After seeing it on-line we hoped it would be nice, but the place was way above our expectations! The color in the living room was the exact color that I've used in our house! I had my color swatches with me and took them out to compare. You have great taste, if I must say so! Ha, ha! After a day or two we found the key to the gate to put our kayaks in the water. We had taken them along without knowing if we would be able to use them. We enjoyed kayaking on the river and were pleased that there was very little boat traffic to spoil the trips. Our son, his wife, and their eleven month old son joined us for the week. We did a lot of baby sitting while they had some time to themselves for a real vacation. We enjoyed cooking on the charcoal grill and had dinner on the deck several nights. I enjoyed watering your flowers and other plants. We used some of your fresh basil and rosemary in our cooking. However the garden tomatoes had a long way to go before they could be picked. We went to the farmer's market on Saturday and Tuesday, so we ate really well while we were there. The kitchen was well stocked. Thanks for all of the extra staples that were there. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home. We loved the quaint neighborhood and the beautiful Annapolis area.

                            Our stay at your house could not have been any better… although it could have been longer! :D What a great house to use as a home base while exploring such a wonderful part of the U.S. Your email detailing the local area was excellent, went with us and was in use most of the time! We can very much see your attraction to this area and desires to return there! About the only thing we didn’t get a chance to do was to cook the crabs we caught off of your dock… just ran out of time so they are still swimming in the bay! Although it was very hot (over 100) the first day, the weather cooperated throughout the week! Our highlights include (in no particular order): renting kayaks at Quiet Waters and a jet ski from Suntime Rentals in Edgewater; spent a day at Rehoboth Beach and another at Ocean City (MD) with a side excursion to Assateague Island to see the ponies; we walked Main Street in downtown Annapolis and ate Miss Peggy’s crab cakes at Galway Bay (per your recommendation… they were fantastic); we took a boat tour of Washington D.C. and ate at the Green Turtle in Chinatown and also visited the National Aquarium in Baltimore (this was the only rainy day which worked nicely for this excursion)! We also strolled the neighborhood a few times and everyone we met along the way was very nice. Thank you again for the opportunity to share your house. It will certainly be part of the bank of very fond memories we will take with us for the rest of our lives!

                            I just wanted to write and tell you what a great time we had in Annapolis at your house! This was our first time renting a house, and I have to say it exceeded all expectations - your house is beautiful and in great condition, and your notes of advice helped us so much. I will definitely keep you in mind for future trips and am recommending it for my parents for a possible family reunion with their parents.

                            I just wanted to tell you what a great time we had in Annapolis at your house! This was our first time renting a house, and I have to say it exceeded all expectations, Your house is beautiful and in great condition, and your notes of advice helped us so much. I will definitely keep you in mind for future trips and am recommending it for my parents for a possible family reunion with their parents
