Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The minute you step into our charming waterfront cottage you will feel right at home!

Situated on Harness Creek, in a quiet residential neighborhood, the Yellow Cottage is a great place to 'get away from it all'. Recently renovated, our 60+ year old home has all of the modern day comforts to make your stay enjoyable. With the original heart pine floors and a huge farm sink in the kitchen, we have retained the feeling of a true waterfront cottage.

A cheerful country kitchen greets you as you enter the front door. If it's just a cup of tea you want or something more elaborate, the kitchen has it all. Beyond the kitchen is a sunny combination dining and living room area. Two oversize comfy chairs face the water in the sitting area where you can read or relax with a glass of wine.

With the two bedrooms, the cottage sleeps four guests in either a queen or full sized bed. A sleep sofa in the living room can sleep an additional guest.

During the summer months enjoy life on the creek! Bring your fishing rod and cast from the pier or try your hand at catching some local crabs. Rent canoes and paddle kayaks close by at Quiet Water's Park. Visit us during the fall and watch the leaves change across the creek from your Adirondack chair each morning. Or settle in for a cozy winter weekend at the cottage with a good book and some hot chocolate!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

As I write this review, I am sitting in cozy chairs overlooking the creek. The weather is terrible, but it is still so tranquil. The cottage is the perfect getaway destination. We are in town for Parents’ Weekend at USNA. The cottage is close enough to get our son back and forth, but just far enough away to relax. The neighborhood is beautiful. My son who is now in his third year stated he didn’t even know this area existed. There is even a winery down the road. Accommodations are terrific; house has everything you need. The owner even turned on lights and the A/C before our arrival as we were getting into town late and heat was oppressive. Would highly recommend!!

Beautiful neighborhood and city, and comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time exploring the city of Annapolis with its historical charm and wonderful food and people! The Yellow Cottage is perfect for either a short weekend vacation or a week long exploration of Annapolis! The cottage is cozy and really feels like a home away from home, we would recommend the Yellow Cottage to anyone!

Great property. Great location !

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boards that were included with the rental. Kayaking was a great way to see the neighborhood. Crabbing was good. Family caught 13 keepers off the dock using hand lines, chicken necks and net. Free appetizer before we went to dinner. Would rent again in the future.

Quaint cottage that is in the perfect location, perfect location to enjoy Annapolis

  • 5 of 5

The little cottage has so much to offer if you are there to enjoy Annapolis. Very relaxing location and though not fancy has all the amenities you need. If you enjoy water like we do, the relaxing location was perfect.
