About John

Through the generations, our family has loved spending time here on the Magothy River ... we love the water, the calm breeze, and the slower life style in an upscale location (yet only minutes away from downtown Annapolis or Kent Island) ... we hope you enjoy our vacation home here as much as we have!

John purchased this house in 2008

Why John chose Central

Waterfront location with upscale home just outside Annapolis and conveniently situated near Baltimore and Washington, DC ... lots to see and do in a restful setting with so many activities and sightseeing adventures close by. Airports are close by with BWI being about 25-30 minutes away and DCA about an hour.

What makes this house unique

Water activities, sightseeing, touring, museums, dining out, and all that Annapolis, Baltimore, and Washington, DC have to offer! See links below to a range of activities.

A beautiful, spacious, home with a spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Thanksgiving 2016 at this home. We had 30 family members for dinner and there was plenty of room. This waterfront property had many amenities that made our stay comfortable and relaxing. It would have been worth it for the breathtaking view alone, however, there are multiple beds, bathrooms and family areas. The kitchen has one of the biggest counter islands I've ever seen, which accommodated many helpers. The master bedroom/bath/closet is luxurious with large windows that face the river. In addition, the basement is completely furnished with a comfy sectional sofa and large screen TV. I will rent this again when we visit family. For more than 3 people, it's a much better value than a hotel. The owners couldn't have been nicer.

I give this house/experience my highest endorsement.

Spectacular EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5

FIVE stars in every way: breath-taking views, spacious, clean, comfortable, and ideal location. This home was a perfect fit for our family. We were 6 adults, 3 children, and 1 princess (baby). We celebrated 2 birthdays, one surprise party no less, attended a Navy football game, and made memories to last a lifetime. Being able to all be in the spacious kitchen -- dining room -- living room allowed us to be together and share laughs, food and great conversations. The location was ideal for a common meeting place. The kitchen was well-stocked, there were plenty of linens, and the view from the back porch was non-stop gorgeous. A big grocery store was just minutes away, as were restaurants and shops.

Great communication with the owner: John was SO kind, SO accommodating, always answered all of my email questions so timely. Not to mention, that security deposit came ever so quickly. :)

This is a WINNER! This is absolutely the best house we stayed in using VRBO, and we are all looking forward to next year's get-together. Spectacular Everything!!

Place to stay in Annapolis area

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect fit for our group. We celebrated our daughter's Sweet 16 at this house with her and 5 of her friends and it exceeded our expectations. The view is breathtaking and the house is spacious and very well equipped. We initially chose this area because the girls and I were attending a concert in Columbia Maryland. It was an easy drive to Columbia and it was like an oasis after a long day at an outdoor concert. Annapolis is minutes away and there are many restaurants in the area. John was very easy to work with and give us great tips about the area. I would highly recommend this property and would stay there again.

Outstanding spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on the Severn River property could not have been better. The home was beautiful, spacious, and equipped for everything we needed. We kayaked, crabbed, swam and had a feast right on the shore. Thank you John for the memorable time in your home.

Breathtaking Waterfront Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our family could not have been happier in this welcoming home. First off is the breathtaking view. It changes constantly and we didn't want to take our eyes off of it! Upon arrival, the home was immaculate, comfy, and incredibly spacious. Our group of ten (5 adults & 5 children) had every amenity we could wish for. From a well stocked kitchen --including everything you need for an authentic crab feast, -- to fresh towels, books & cozy bed linens....this home has it all! We enjoyed catching Maryland's famous blue crabs, fishing, kayaking, swimming, & local eateries. Downtown Annapolis and Baltimore are just a short drive away. We spent memorable relaxing hours on the cozy porch watching boats pass by, abundant wildlife & spectacular sunrises & sunsets. The owners went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Having rented dozens of houses on VRBO over the years, this house moves to the top of our "favorites" list!! We miss the view already & can't wait to go back to this restful retreat!

Car: necessary

Approximately 10 minute drive to downtown Annapolis with the U.S. Naval Academy, Maryland state capital, shops, historic homes, tours, fantastic restaurants, historical sites, sailing, and boat rentals. Even a Pirate Ship cruise for the kids in summer/fall!

Sandy Point State Park is definitely worth a visit - less than 10 minutes away. and

Within minutes to other shopping, restaurants, activities (public golf courses, miniature/putt putt golf, golf driving range, executive par 3 course, boating, sailing, fishing trips, etc.)

Approximately an hour drive to either Washington, DC for the Smithsonian (19 museums, 9 research centers, and the National Zoo), theaters including the recently renovated Ford's Theater, restaurants, White House, U.S. Capitol, Georgetown, and more in our nation's capital or a half hour drive to visit Baltimore, MD for the upscale Harborplace and the Gallery with shopping and restaurants, and the National Aquarium for the kids.(

Finally, a visit to Ft. McHenry near Baltimore, Maryland is not to be forgotten. Still, if you long for a more relaxed approach to the area, drive across the Bay Bridge to Kent Island and then on to the Eastern Shore with dozens of small waterfront or resort towns for antiquing, historical sites, shopping (discount outlets), exploring, eating, etc.
