About Deborah Brooks

I grew up in Maryland and as a child visited the Chesapeake Bay on family outings and with the Girl Scouts. As an adult I lived in Annapolis and spent a lot of time sailing and boating on the Bay. I love a quiet beach to really relax and unwind. My dog likes to accompany me to the beach for swims and long walks looking for sharks teeth and sea glass. I love to cook and have equipped the kitchen with everything I need to prepare great meals for my family and friends.

Deborah Brooks purchased this house in 2007

Why Deborah Brooks chose Chesapeake Ranch Estates-Drum Point

My parents owned another home in Cove Point Beach in the 1980's and I spent lots of time at the house. I fell in love with the Chesapeake Bay Western Shore. I was delighted to have the opportunity to purchase this home as a vacation home and offer it as a rental for other families to experience life on the Chesapeake Bay. The proximity to my home in Ashburn, VA, allows me to getaway there throughout the year to work or relax with friends.

What makes this house unique

The location on the marsh side of Cove Point gives the feel of being secluded in a cabin in the woods. The front screened porch is a great spot for a meal or relaxing with a book in the rocking chairs. A short two blocks away is the private beach where I can let my dog off leash. The walk to the lighthouse and gentle waves of the bay make it ideal for children. The area is so quiet and peaceful, full of relaxing night sounds in the marsh. You will sleep well during your visit!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Deborah,

We are getting packed up here at your Cove Point home and we've had such a good time, thank you for offering such a comfortable vacation spot. 

Again, thank you for the kind communication as we prepared for the trip and we'll be sure to recommend your home to others. 

Have a good week.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son(2 years) and I stayed at Cedar Beach Lodge during a terribley rainy weekend in October. Despite the weather, we had a wonderful time! The house was spotless and decorated so beautifully! The covered wrap around porch was perfect to sit and watch the rain fall with a cup of hot chocolate!

I would highly recommend to anyone!

wonderful, relaxing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Cedar Beach Lodge. The lodge was terrific- very clean, comfortable and had everything you could want. We very much enjoyed the beach and the local surroundings. Deborah was so easy to work with and very responsive. I highly recommend Cedar Beach Lodge! (it was such a nice bonus to be able to bring all our family- including the 4 legged furry members.)Thank you!

Deborah was so responsive from the start! The beach was great and the community owners were very friendly. We would definitely consider a return visit. Only problem was that our stay was too short. We didn't want to leave thanks Deborah!

Totally awesome! Perfect for a relaxing getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place! The house was super clean, beautiful, comfortable, and well equipped with everything you could possibly need to cook, relax, or use for the beach, which is about a seven minute walk away. The house is located at the end of the street, and the property is shaded, quiet, and very private. The beach Is quiet, clean, peaceful, and very pretty--night or day. Deborah, who owns/manages the property, is thoughtful, accommodating, and responsive. She has been wonderful to deal with. We will be back!

Serene and wonderful stay, steps to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a truly relaxing time at this spacious and serene property by a private beach. We took walks on the beach with our dog and enjoyed beautiful views of the lighthouse and bay. We ran into so few people, it felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves! The kitchen was well-appointed and we ate most meals at the house. Our six-month-old daughter loved it here. The house was laid out perfectly for her to take naps upstairs while the adults relaxed on the porch or watched a movie. We appreciated how we could leave much of the baby gear at home and use the crib, high chair, toys and even a toddler wagon that were provided here! A quiet and absolutely serene place for the parents and plenty of things for our kid to do made this hands down the best trip for us! Plus plenty to do for families in the area, including hiking at Calvert Cliffs, the nice restaurants on Solomons Island, and local kid-friendly museums and gardens. Highly recommend this lodge for families with little ones and furry friends. We can't wait to return!
