Our 3 bedroom / 2 full bath home sits on a beautiful fresh water lake surrounded with trees in a neighborhood on the stunning Potomac River! Come enjoy the great amenities or simply do nothing at all! We have 6 kayaks/boats for your use, and crabbing/fishing supplies. The community has 3 beaches: a private sandy lake beach with swimming dock, a river-front sandy beach with 15-million-year-old+ shark teeth, and a fossil cliff beach. Olympic size pool at clubhouse! River and lake boat launches! Daily bald eagle sightings! Seasonal hot tub on our patio overlooking the lake!
This place is so special that we vacationed here for 2 days and then became home owners within 6 months!
Our 3 bedroom plus loft home with 2 full baths have all been freshly updated, with a completely remodeled kitchen. The master bedroom has a queen bed and attached full bathroom. The second room has a queen bed, and the third room is our bunk room with two sets of bunk beds! In addition, we also have a sleeping loft that has 2 comfortable futon couches as well as a fold-out bed chair, bringing the total number of sleepers to 13! (Note: 5'8" overhead clearance in the loft, with steep stairs leading to it; kids love it and we love it for movie night). We have 2 pack n plays and a high chair if needed.
The house has its own private dock on the 110-acre clean freshwater lake. Swim or paddle to your heart's content. We have a canoe, double kayak, Stand up paddle board, single kayak, two kids' kayaks and a kids' paddle board for your use right off our dock! We also have many different sized life jackets. Paddle out and have a flotilla with your loved ones. The water is warm enough for swimming April through October, paddling year round.
A great getaway for the whole family! A campfire ring, tetherball, and hammocks outside. Foosball, games, and books inside. The TV has a Wii console plus Roku for Netflix & Hulu. Our dining room table can seat 12 plus another 2 at the bar! It is such a joy to sit with everyone together and enjoy a crab feast!
Sitting in the middle of the woods, our house is so quiet and peaceful. You can sit on the deck or dock with your cup of tea and take it all in. Listen to the woodpeckers and the wind in the trees while watching bald eagles soar above you.
Great community amenities as well! Three beaches suitable for swimming or fossil hunting. There is a lake beach with a dock and floating dock for swimming and diving. Two beaches on the Potomac for fossil hunting, beach combing, sand castle building. One is big and sandy with picnic tables and another is a small hike down with lots of walking and large cliffs. The clubhouse has a small fitness center and a large pool with diving boards plus kids' wading pool. Community boat ramps on both the Potomac and the private lake (note: only electric boats allowed on the lake). We have crab pots and other fishing gear if you want to try your hand at catching your own dinner. Or we know all the locals' numbers if you want to buy them already cooked and seasoned perfectly!
You have full access to the entire house, private dock, and lake. There is a small workroom in the basement that is locked.
The neighborhood common areas are only available to owners and guests. As a guest, you will have full access to the clubhouse (with fitness center), pool ($2/person guest use fee), boat ramps, marina, and neighborhood beaches as long as you properly display your guest tag.
We live and work in Washington DC. We have an excellent local manager that if anything comes up we can have it taken care of ASAP.
We are in a rural area, and the nearest stores are at least 10-15 minutes away. Big box stores are even further (>30 mins away).
There is also poor reception for several national cellular carriers. However, we do have excellent, reliable internet.
