Lovely place--perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at The Big House! And big it was, with plenty of room for our family ranging in age from 10 to 90! The house was immaculate and had everything we needed to bake and cook for Thanksgiving. I brought a few baking items because I was unsure what would be there but, except for a rolling pin, I think I could have managed with what was available in the well-equipped kitchen. The bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely and the beds very comfortable. I was initially pouting about having to bring our own bed linens and towels but it worked out okay. We enjoyed the lovely sunrises over the Chesapeake and some of us even made use of the hot tub. There are several restaurants in the area and Christopher's Fine Foods was a very nice grocery store about 15 minutes away. We planned a very nice 90th birthday celebration at Carrol's Creek Cafe in Annapolis with a delicious cake from Main and Market so though we felt we were really away from it all, there were great amenities nearby. Dawn and Ron were very responsive throughout and when we ran into one small problem (both remote controls' batteries died at the same time!) and we thought it was a technical issue, the very nice woman who cleans for them was there quickly to help us figure it out. I would highly recommend this vacation home.

In spite of almost a week of rain, we still had a great time. There were eleven of us but the house is so well planned that we didn't get in each others way. We had planned to be out and about for the week but mother nature did not have the same plan. With three separate sitting areas inside, we had plenty of room to spread out . Overall a great week.

Nice views and quality space.

  • 4 of 5

The Big House is the big house, at least in this quite neighborhood. Good quality space, wonderful views and a great tree to sit under.

One room has six singles, so its great for families with lot of kids.

Friendly and responsive management.

Only a few issues to alert management to:

The no stick pans are getting worn out.

The requirement to not just fill the dishwasher but to store all things back in the cabinets before departure adds logistical complications; best avoided by adding $15 to the rent.

The powder room has a musty smell.

Enjoyable week vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the "Big House" for a family vacation. We had 12 adults and 3 small children. There was plenty of room for all of us to enjoy the spacious house and porch. The view from the porch especially at sun rise was outstanding. The pictures on this site do not do the house justice. We had to bring our own sheets and towels. We found out after we arrived that the bedroom with the two double beds were actually two queen beds. Ron was great to work with and answered any questions we had.

Very nice home, on the waterfront, between Herrington Harbor North and South marinas

  • 5 of 5

The Big House at Tracy's Landing had plenty of space for our family gathering of 6 adults and 4 pre teens. We brought our own towels and sheets since there is no linen service, just bedspreads and pillows provided on the beds. We enjoyed the porches w plenty of seating and great view of the bay. Enjoyed a day in WADC and neighboring towns. About a 40 minute boat ride to Annapolis. We plan to return.
