About the Property

Country House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12, limit 8 adults)

Waterfront retreat only 1 hour 15 minutes drive from the center of Washington, DC near historic Solomons Island, Maryland, where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Patuxent River. Enjoy spectacular views from nearly every room of the beautifully-renovated historic farmhouse on a seven-acre estate on the water. Sip lemonade from rocking chairs on the porch and soak in the gorgeous sunsets over Patuxent River, fall asleep in the hammock, or tuck yourself away with a book anywhere on the grounds surrounded by the water. Do not be alarmed by the plentiful deer, turtles, rabbits, ducks, bald eagles, ospreys, and other small wildlife that may pay you a quiet visit. Swim at the small private beach, fish and crab, enjoy boating/sailing/kayaking and all sorts of water sports, take a walk along the many public beaches, boardwalks, marinas and nature trails in the area. Admire the historic tobacco barns and organic farms, visit farmers markets, historic landmarks and Amish communities in Saint Mary’s County, and try the cuisine at the multiple seafood restaurants on Solomon’s Island. There are also plenty of museums including Annemarie Sculpture Garden and Calvert Marine Museum and diversions such as mini-golf, bowling, golf and tennis in the area. Arts and crafts festivals also abound.

The eco-friendly farmhouse (solar panels provide part of the electricity supply) has 5+ bedrooms 4 bathrooms and can sleep up to 12 people (limit of 8 adults per group). Furnished with a crib, cradle and toys, the house is baby-friendly and has been tastefully furnished and renovated with all the modern amenities including central heating and A/C, and high-speed internet. Other rooms and amenities include a library with fireplace and water views, sitting room with fireplace and water views, huge living room with panoramic water views, modern kitchen with water views, dining room that seats up to 12 (and has high chair), children’s play room, open back porch on the water, screened-in front porch, plenty of outdoor furniture and an outdoor grill.

If you are looking for peace and tranquility, fun family time or romantic getaways, this is a fine retreat. Do nothing or do plenty, it’s all up to you.

Weekly rentals only during June-September. Minimum 4-night rental other times.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to limited parking space and lack of outdoor toilets, we cannot accommodate wedding receptions nor big receptions/parties.

We are just off the 'H' from 'Hoopers Neck'. The dock has 8 feet at high tide at its end (exterior side of the bottom of the L). The channel is there and is 12 foot deep.
