Property description

"Eagles Wings" is the ONLY rental home on Cobb Island with BOTH a BEACH (great for children to play in the sand and collect sea glass) AND a large SCREENED-IN PORCH with wide river views (for relaxing in the shade during the day and for "mosquito-free" dinners when the sun sets). Our home has comfortable upscale leather furnishings with a kitchen well equipped for the gourmet cook. Located on Cobb Island in Southern Maryland (a one hour drive from the Washington, DC Beltway) our home is situated where the Wicomico River joins up with the mighty Potomac.

There are large floor to ceiling windows throughout the house giving the feel of being "outside" even when you are "inside". Our large and comfortably furnished screened-in porch allows you to be "outside" long after the sun has set. The river views are amazing everywhere you look! Upscale and comfortable furnishings throughout the house add to the relaxing feel of being on Cobb Island.

The private pier for fishing & boating, the large lower deck for sunbathing, our unique beach for children to play, our panoramic waterfront views from our incredible screened-in porch combined with our comfortable furnishings make our 4 bedroom and 2 bath vacation home a special getaway. Dining area is off the kitchen or you have the option of dining out on our screened-in porch. Post dinner family games and puzzles out on the porch are a fun option, too!

We provide kayaks, fishing rods, bicycles and even a crab trap for our guests. Cobb Island is a great, quiet (best kept secret) and the perfect place for a relaxing vacation with family and friends. Our repeat guests are a testament to just how much people enjoy our dual riverfront and beachfront home. Please take a moment to read all the wonderful reviews our guests have written about their stay with us.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: I am retired and enjoy spending time on Cobb with my children and grandchildren. It is our favorite family vacation spot and we invite you to experience special family times in this special island setting.

Why the Owner Chose Cobb Island, MD, USA:
My husband and I owned a beach house in Bethany Beach, Delaware for many years. Sometime in the mid 1990s (while we were stuck in traffic trying to cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to our home in Bethany Beach) we decided it was time to find a place with an easier commute from Northern Virginia. We landed on Cobb Island and never looked back! It is an easy 75 minute commute from our Northern Virginia home and those coming from the Greater Washington DC area will appreciate not having to cross the Bay Bridge to get to our wonderful island home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A short drive to Washington DC. It is a Single Family Home with both a private waterfront beach and a large screened in porch (both are unique to our Cobb Island home!) plus a large waterfront dock and lower deck for sunbathing, all with expansive river views.
