Summerlee awaits you (5 bedrooms, 5 baths total). This classic beach house has been fully renovated and luxuriously appointed. The house features an open floor plan for easy entertaining. Situated directly on Chesapeake, hear the waves while you cook, read or relax; see diverse wildlife including, herons, swans, ospreys, bald eagles, and pelicans through expansive glass doors, from the screened-in porch, the wrap-around deck or the large deck off the master bedroom. Or, grab a beach chair or towel and head for the private sandy beach. The open floor plan, complete with a large kitchen, dining room, 2 sitting rooms and a TV room allows a large family or group to be together whether cooking, playing games, watching television or just relaxing. A crackling fire in the wood burning fireplace makes winter days at Summerlee as enticing as summer days. Enjoy a weekend wine tasting at nearby Woodlawn plantation - Slack wines dot com.
A short-bike ride away is Point Lookout State Park, a Civil War site. Today the park, which is located at the intersection of the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River, hosts miles of protected land set aside for biking, kayaking, boating, fishing, camping or enjoying nature as well as a museum that provides a historical perspective on the region. Or charter a boat at one of many local marinas for a day of fishing on the Bay. Another nearby historical site is St. Mary's City (10 miles), the original capital of Maryland. Visitors are 25 minutes from dining and shopping on Solomon's Island or in historic Leonardtown. Or enjoy one of several local marina restaurants. Want a day trip away? All that the nation's capital has to offer is a short 80 miles away.
Collect shells and beach glass while walking uninterrupted for miles along the sandy beach. Unlike typical cheek-by-jowl beach houses, Summerlee offer its visitors bayfront accommodations on an acre of land. Enjoy rare waterfront privacy so close to major cities and amenities.

About Peggy Binzel
Love urban life; also, love the isolated beach with amazing wildlife. Scotland is a welcome retreat from hectic city life.
Peggy Binzel purchased this House in 2007
Why Peggy Binzel chose Point Lookout
Scotland is a rare find. Rarely do you find an area that begins with beautiful forests and opens up onto fabulous beaches. Little traffic but only 2 hours from Washington or Baltimore. I discovered a jewel.
What makes this House unique
Sunrise over the Bay with morning coffee is heavenly. Walks on the beach. Take a 30 minute kayak ride or a 5 hours one - very convenient out the front door. Enjoy a tasting of good quality local wines at beautiful Woodlawn plantation just 10 miles away.

It was fantastic!!!
We'd love to come back to this house/area again.
Great waterfront house for groups
This is a great house for groups. Very spacious main living level and porch with water views, with nice kitchen and lots of different sitting areas. Spacious bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, with good separation between the rooms. All the standard amenities plus a beach. Access and communication with owner and managers was very easy. Recommend it and plan to stay again.
Worked out great for our team meeting.
Excellent place to stay with family & friends
This is our 3rd time staying at Summerlee. It's so peaceful and quiet and awesome to be able to see the water from the entire front of the house. It's the perfect layout for hanging with family and friends with different nooks to relax in while still being together. Kitchen is well stocked, everything very clean and the linens/towels are nice. A great getaway location!
Wonderful Weekend at the beach in January
We took advantage of a last minute weekend deal at Summerlee with 3 other families to just get away and spend time together. This is our 3rd stay at one of Peggy's properties in the past 4 months, and we can't get enough! Summerlee is our favorite. The wood burning fireplace, big, cozy couches, well appointed kitchen, screen porch and waterfront view makes this home so very special. We all arrived Friday evening, quickly got settled in and started a cozy fire. We spent Saturday walking the beach, collecting sea glass and shells. We spent time putting together a massive puzzle on the dining room table, which is big enough to accommodate dinner and a puzzle! Some folks snuck in a nap, some read, some watched movies, there is plenty of room for everyone to do just what they want to do! The linens are always of the best quality, the beds are made to melt in to. We all left out on Sunday in agreement, we are all in for another amazing weekend at Summerlee, no mater the time of year! Thanks to Peggy and her crew for always making our stay perfect!
Best winter retreat destination!
Beautifully decorated, comfortable home right on the water. Our group of ten enjoyed a wonderful three days there, playing cards and golf, exploring the park, historical St. Mary’s City and heading over to Solomon’s for seafood. We love Peggy’s houses, great ammenities and designed for maximum guest comfort - will be back again next winter!
Slack vineyard wine tasting on weekends - 10 miles away at Woodlawn plantation. Also, they host outdoor symphony and other musical concerts in a beauitful waterfront setting.
