  • Amazing Views of the Potomac

    "We stayed 4 nights at the cottage, looking for an escape from DC. The views of the Potomac are amazing from every room. The property manager, Joan, was great to work with and Duke, the local "Mr. Fix-it" was quick to respond to an initial problem with the refrigerator. The dogs (and humans) loved swimming off the dock. Could not have asked for a better setting and the 360 views of fireworks was worth the wait!"

  • Great location, gorgeous house

    "This was our second stay at Paradise Found. It is a great location for beach lovers, right on the bay, calm shallow water, natural beach area, and a friendly safe community. The house is VERY well appointed, comfortable and beautiful. It is an excellent rental for pets with a secure fenced in side yard and several tie out runs. The caretakers collect the trash everyday and it is appreciated. I would definitely stay again."

  • Perfectly beautiful house and location

    "This is a spot which is really ideal for a quiet vacation with friends and family. The house is lovely and spacious. The property with its setting right on the river couldn't be nicer. The location is also excellent because for all the feeling of peace and solitude, you are still close to shops, beaches, restaurants and interesting state parks so there is plenty to do."

  • Better than a four star hotel!!!

    "We love this place. Every amenity is here. From the bath towels to the appliances - everything is very high end. I notice things in a remodel. The owners did an exceptional job keeping the 1930's aura. The moldings, wainscoating and the the little pass through window between the kitchen and living room add so much charm and character. And the house is wonderfully decorated. The furniture and beds are soft, cushy and comfortable. The decor is also wonderful. Every little detail lends the idea this place is very professionally decorated, but in a fun way (I love the fish pillow). It's much more spacious than the photos show. We met the the next door neighbors and some of the towns people - everyone is very friendly. It's awesome to walk out the boardwalk with your morning coffee and enjoy the breeze and sunrise. It's not a bad drive to Annapolis or DC. There are no traffic problems in getting here, either. It's also very quiet at night. A true home away from home!!!"
