Property description


2nd Waterfront House: Do you have an extra large group? We have a second beautiful waterfront house on private two acres just a mile and 1/2 away. This 2nd location is like a private waterfront compound and bigger groups often take both houses. --

Boats Available- We have both a large 35' Cruiser and a 22' ski boat for rent and/or charter with a Captain. The Chesapeake Bay was recently rated a top 5 boating/cruising spot in the world. Withing 1 hour by boat are ports of call like Baltimore, St. Micheal's, Annapolis, 20-30 dock bars/restaurants, secluded islands, rope swings and amazing sunsets. All the pictures here are of real boating excursions on our boats:

If possible fill out the VRBO form and text us at the same time at 443-421-0000. (I get texts almost immediately and respond). The house is already rented for Navy Commissioning Week 2016.

***I do discount for smaller groups in the 6-8 people range so consider the house even for your small groups***

***I have not been very good at asking for testimonials but the house has been rented over 60 times in the last 17 years with outstanding feedback. People love the house, its size and its uniqueness. Its character perfectly fits with historic Annapolis and the water. The house is a replica of a 1700's house in terms of features like 16 inch pine floors, multiple fireplaces, etc but totally modern in feel an amenities otherwise. We are often told the house feels like a private bed and breakfast***

***Do not underestimate the size of the house. The house has 4 finished levels with each of the top 2 levels having 3 Bedrooms, plus a bedroom in the basement, plus another room that can be used for living space during the day and closed off for a great sleeping space at night giving you 8 private sleeping spaces plus sofa bed in the basement.


Over the years the property has been one of the first to rent for Navy Commissioning Week due to its ability to accommodate large numbers of people combined with its historic yet modern feel appropriate for a visit to Historic Annapolis . The word 'character' is used often by guests. The property was built in the 80's as historic replica of a famous ship captains house (circa 1714) in Portsmouth, NH but has a welcoming modern flavor. It has just enough 'historic' to feel unique and plenty of 'modern' to feel comfortable. You will not feel like you are in an old dated house. Guests have the ability to get away into private bedrooms then come to the common area which is open from dining to kitchen to a large family room. French doors then open to the patio giving the first level access to the outside. The community itself has been written about because of the many historic reproduction houses built by one builder combined with other unique houses (no two houses are alike in the community). The community is very quite as it only has one street in and one out so has very little traffic especially after dark.

More about the house....
Imagine: an amazing Mahogany front door entrance, large plank pine hardwood floors with hand forged nails throughout the 3 upper levels, historic cage bar, 6' x 6' overhead beams on the main living area with fans, 4 fireplaces, 6 over 6 windows, unique trim and moldings, extra wide staircases up to the 2nd and then 3rd levels combined with recent modern paint, gourmet kitchen with high end gas stove, granite counter tops, tile back splashes, marble vanity tops, hand crafted woodworking, built in cabinets, crown molding, modern paint and more. Except for the basement which is tile flooring the entire house is wide plank hardwood floors.

We are gourmet foodies so the house lacks for nothing in terms of food preparation equipment including two refrigerators. 'Ask about us preparing a meal for your group, it will be as spectacular as any 4-5 star restaurant you have been to at a fractions of the cost.

The house has a new Weber high end outdoor grill and large charcoal grill.

The house is not overly decorated as the unique building features speak for themselves and each room has its own style. The owner has invested heavily in the photography of Thomas Mangelson one of the worlds premier nature and panoramic photographers.

Living Layout: The property has 4 living levels (including the basement) with 3 bedrooms on each of the upper two levels and one in the basement. The top level allows guests to feel like they have some privacy away from the main living area and people describe it as 'bed and breakfast' feeling. The 2nd level contains 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths and contains the master bedroom.

The main living area has a kitchen which flows directly into a family room called 'The Keep' with unique brick flooring. Opposite the kitchen is a large dining room with table seating for 10-12. Across the hall from the kitchen is a large 16 x 22 family room which is often converted to a bedroom/living room by adding 1-2 beds for guests to one side. (this room is not included in the bedrooms but is an extra space if needed)

The basement is finished with tile flooring and is the TV/Entertainment room with surround sound system and 58' flat screen, with several comfortable couches and massage chair. The basement couch has two ottomans which essentially turn it into a very comfy bed.

The patio was redone several years ago in a natural stone called Allegheny Rose which is a combination of whites, pinks and vibrant reds. The patio is accessed from french doors in the Keep and also from the back door off the house.

The property has a detached two car garage and plenty of street parking.

The community pier and community waterfront park are about 150 yards from the house and the path leading down runs through the woods.

'When my two brothers and I decided to select an appropriate destination for a family reunion, we all decided upon Annapolis for many reasons. Due to the number of people anticipated to attend, we were immediately drawn to Eric's home due to the size but also due to its ambiance. We were thrilled that we selected this home as it easily accommodated 14 people who were there at any one time given that there were eight adult children along with girlfriends, wives, and even a grandchild. The location was fantastic since it was far enough away from the historic area which can get congested but still close enough for those that wanted to shop, do some sight seeing, and enjoy all that this capital city has to offer. We also got to enjoy both Washington and Baltimore since the home provided easy access to the main roads. Finally, Eric was gracious enough to let us use some kayaks and he took us out on his boat to do some tubing and enjoy the water ways in the area. We would definitely recommend this home and would welcome the opportunity to return even with a smaller group. Thanks, Eric!' -- Dave and Family
