About Maureen Morris

My first words to you are Welcome. I enjoy friendly people and welcome you to enjoy our hospitality while being surrounded by the beautiful nature you will see at Green Heron Paradise.

My husband, Bill, and I both grew up in Annapolis and fell in love with the water and the people. We bought this spectacular site as a marina that was converted to a private residence. Bill, a Custom Home builder had the vision to move the existing Marina structure via crane off pilings on the water onto the beautiful foundation you see today. Please ask him to tell you the story.

I enjoy cooking, entertaining and travel after retiring from the Airline Industry after 19 years. Currently, I am a Realtor licensed in the state of Maryland.

We love to make time for people, housing, boating and travel.

We have a rescue cat and a Service Dog but they do not have access to your private space.

A most wonderful vacation

What can we say? The home and Furnishings are impeccably appointed, The View spectacular, and the graciousness of Bill and Maureen is unparalleled. From the moment we walked in, it was as if we were visiting family. We will absolutely be telling people of our memorable stay at Green Heron Resort

5 Star Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Our stay with Maureen and Bill was nothing short of a spectacular experience. The house and guest suite are immaculate and very comfortable. The location is very convenient to BWI and Annapolis, not to mention beautiful as it is surrounded on three sides by water.

Maureen and Bill themselves are the very best of hosts: kind, generous, and thoughtful. They were always available if we needed them, and perfectly happy if we did not! We will certainly stay with them again on our next trip to MD.

It's as beautiful as the pictures make it look!

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes you see a VRBO pic, but you get there and realize the place you've rented isn't anywhere as nice as the pictures led you to believe. Not so with the Green Heron Retreat! Inside & out, it's fantastic - beautiful decor inside, and you're surrounded by water, boats and incredible scenery when you relax outside. You get the entire 3rd floor - very large bedroom, bathroom, and a dining area with great views. Maureen & Bill go out of their way to make your stay a wonderful one ... they couldn't be nicer!
