About Christine

About the Homeowners: When we first left in 2001 we rented our home on yearly basis. However, our children later confided that the only thing that made them unhappy about being full time cruisers was not being able to stay in our home when we visited Bay Ridge. That is when we decided to explore renting our home on a weekly basis. So far it has worked beautifully. We have been able to share our home with others, pay for some of the overhead and enjoy staying in our home and lovely community when visiting Annapolis. About At Home - Annapolis: Christine with At Home - Annapolis has been managing this home for 10+ years. She knows every detail and nuance of the home and community. Please feel free to give her a call directly so that she can answer your questions. 410-320-3228.

Christine purchased this House in 1993

Why Christine chose Bay Ridge

Shortly after 9/11 we decided to take time with our family and go on a sailing adventure with our two children, ages 2 and 5 years. Our original plan was to sail for two years and then return to our home in Annapolis. The two year plan has since been extended to the present and will continue until our thirteen year old enters high school in the fall of 2010. We have had the wonderful opportunity to sail through the Bahamas, Caribbean, and Mediterranean Seas. Our ambition is to go through the Panama Canal and across the Pacific this next spring.

                                                            Perfect house for our family of 12

                                                            Matt T.Hudsonville, Michigan

                                                            We had a group of 6 adults and 6 kids and the house has plenty of room for all of us. The house is even nicer than the pictures and the pool/yard is beautiful. The neighborhood is quiet and safe which made it perfect for walking, running and bike riding. We saw a lot of deer and even a few foxes during our stay. The location is great for heading to Annapolis or over the bridge to Kent Narrows. Also only 45 minutes from D.C. and Baltimore. Christine and Katie took great care of us and were quick to answer any questions or concerns.

                                                            The only thing I would suggest is there be a few fishing poles, bikes, kayaks/paddleboards and lawn games. Renting these items for a week are very expensive around Annapolis.

                                                            If we ever vacation in the Annapolis area again, we would choose this house in a heartbeat!

                                                            Woke up to water views and bridge skyline every day.. just an incredible week with family celebrating. Lots of time hanging the pool and hot tub.. and just sharing laughs on the front porch. Great memories for all!!!!

                                                            Ideal end of summer getaway

                                                            118 River Rd. is simply terrific. It's located perfectly in an idyllic community about a 10 minute drive outside of downtown Annapolis. The home is pristine in a lived-in kind of way. There is nothing sterile or "rental" about it. Walking in, one feels as though the homeowners have perhaps just stepped-out. The house is welcoming and warm. The in-ground swimming pool is plenty long for exercise, and deep enough for diving and hours of fun for all. The hot tub is added benefit-it get's pretty hot. The neighborhood is ideal for walking, jogging, bicycling-all passersby are friendly and unobtrusive. We would without hesitation consider another week, or two, at 118 in the future. Thank you Christine and Katie!!

                                                            Amazing Family Vacation!

                                                            Our family of 13 just returned from a wonderful week at this gorgeous home. The house is outstanding with a well-equipped large eat-in kitchen, a formal dining area, a comfortable sitting room overlooking the water, and a spacious and bright family room. In addition, there is a large in ground swimming pool that we enjoyed immensely. The view from the front deck is absolutely amazing! Excellent attention from the management. Would definitely return.
