The Beachwood Cottage is located near Mayo, Maryland, on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The property sits on Ramsey Lake and is close to the mouth of the South River allowing for easy boat access to the River and the Chesapeake Bay. The 1940’s Beachwood Cottage sits on 1.5 acres and was once the guest house on a private 6 acre point. The owners of the point have recently reacquired the cottage property and are pleased to offer families and guests the opportunity to enjoy the solitude of this quaint setting. The property abounds in wildlife with regular sightings of deer, fox, osprey and even the occasional bald eagle.
The recently renovated cottage is approximately 1850 square feet of fully furnished living space with three bedrooms, two full baths, family room, dining room and kitchen. The cottage can accommodate a maximum occupancy of eleven (11) people. The upstairs includes two bedrooms and one full bath with a tub. One bedroom, called The Bunk room has one queen, one full and a bunk bed with a twin and full mattress. This room can sleep up to seven. The other upstairs bedroom, known as the Buoy Room, is furnished with a full-size bed. The downstairs bedroom, known as the Crab Room, is furnished with a queen bed.
There is a massive 800 square foot deck with a built-in bar and grill that offers an excellent place for sunning during the day and socializing in the evening. There is a flat screen TV in the living room with cable and a DVD player. The house also has the internet available via Wi-Fi.
Originally a guest cottage, it does sit behind the main house and requires a short walk on its own private access to its own private dock. The dock overlooks a couple of marinas on the quiet protected waters off of the South River. It is equipped with a boat lift and jet ski lift which is available to the avid boater, if they so choose. Because the property is so close to the South River, it is a short boat ride to Thomas Point Light House, downtown Annapolis, and a variety of boat up restaurants. The house comes with two kayaks which is an excellent way to explore the back waters. The dock is a wonderful spot to fish, crab and even swim. The evening sunsets enjoyed from either the large house deck or on the boat dock are magical.
Beachwood Cottage is ideally located for families interested in exploring many of the historical sites in the area. Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Annapolis and the Naval Academy are all within a 30 to 60 minute drive under normal conditions. Airport access is also as convenient with BWI and Raegan International airports within the same driving distance.
