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.

                                              The cottage at Edgewood was cozy and welcoming .I highly recommend it!

                                              Mark A.

                                              Our experience at the cottage was excellent. All members of the party had a great time and loved the décor of the cottage. It was perfect, cozy and felt just like home. The cottage was clean and well taken care of from top to bottom. Tom and Liz were great to deal with as well. I highly recommend staying here!!!

                                              Cute cottage in a lovely, quiet area. We loved the big lawn and using the kayaks.

                                              Angie A.

                                              Owners were easy to contact, and they were very welcoming.

                                              Lovely setting, nicely decorated and maintained home

                                              Donna S.

                                              Enjoyed the setting, especially the fire pit in the evenings and the assorted wildlife in the area. Great escape weekend.

                                              Lovely cottage, well maintained with lots of extras for a rental. Beautiful view of the water.

                                              Alicia L.

                                              Where do I start? The whole experience was wonderful. Liz was quick to respond when I had a question about our rental. The cottage is well decorated, clean and about a 20 minute drive to Annapolis. The deck is large with plenty of seating areas and a fabulous firepit we spent each evening sitting around! The kitchen is well stocked with spices, all the cooking equipment and tools you need. In addition, the bathrooms had hotel size toiletries, kleenex and fresh, new towels. The bed linens are new and all the rooms are well decorated. The owners care about their property and provide everything you need to have a nice getaway at their cottage. I highly recommend this property and will stay here again.

                                              ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!!!

                                              JC L.

                                              This charming cottage was fully and thoughtfully equipped to make our stay so wonderful.All the little extra touches make it feel like you are visiting friends. The current, fresh, nautical decor is so inviting-makes you want to stay, relax and enjoy the amazing view. We booked this fabulous home while attending a family wedding at Herrington Cove( about a half hour scenic drive away) and were so busy with that- we did not get to take advantage of the wonderful outdoor amenities. SO......... we'll be back-to sit and sip and enjoy the fire pit, the kayaks and the crabbing:) The spacious bedrooms- served our purposes beautifully- one of the upstairs bedrooms accommodated our daughter, her husband, and their 4 girls and the spare room was perfect for the babysitter that travelled with us. The "Master" bedroom was quiet and comfortable. All the sheets/pillows/towels/that you could possible need were handy, clean and ready for our use. The kitchen was beautiful and the freezer even had 2 bags of ice waiting for us-no need for a trip out. The baskets of toiletries were much appreciated -since in our haste we forgot a few things-that said, we felt miles away from everything on this idyllic point but just a 10 minute jaunt and we had everything we could possibly want- CVS, Weis, Giant, Target and a handful of great places to eat. A quick, easy drive into Annapolis-this is the perfect getaway-a place to slow down and enjoy the beautiful views:) Thank you to the wonderful owners for making this such a lovely, comfortable place to enjoy our trip to Maryland:) Wish I could give it 10 stars:)

                                              So more then you pay for!

                                              vic d.

                                              The deck, grill/bar area, fire pit, and yard made for an awesome day of grilling and hanging outside with friends. What a great price of property. Tom and Liz checked in an were excessable through our stay. Definitely reccomend!
