About the Property
6 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 4 Full and 2 Half Baths (Sleeps 12-16)
The grounds are completely fenced with a private entrance and direct access to the beach (you may not swim in the water). The site is an idyllic place to slow down and enjoy uninterrupted time with your family and friends. Since this mixed-use lighthouse site is still a fully functioning site, in addition to being a vacation rental, it will continue to welcome the public during the summer season for tours of the grounds.
Proceeds from this beautiful rental site will support the Calvert Marine Museum and a lighthouse endowment set up for its continued care.

This private fenced four-acre site sits on a point of land on the Chesapeake Bay. The neighborhood is private and friendly with opportunities for biking, jogging, or just strolling the beach. The site is located just 7 miles from Solomons Island, which boasts many restaurants, a local brew pub, and the infamous Tiki Bar. The Island also offers antiquing, shopping, boat rentals, charter fishing opportunities and the Calvert Marine Museum.
Just down the street from the site is Cove Point Park which has basketball courts, a playground, baseball fields, and even a water park. A shopping center with ice cream shop, coffee shop, and grocery stores is just 5 miles away.
Visitors could also take a day trip to Washington D.C., Baltimore or Annapolis, which is just over an hour away.
Southern Maryland is a rural area surrounded by rivers and the Chesapeake Bay. It is peaceful and feels a million miles from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Year Purchased: 2000
About: The Calvert Marine Museum is the caretaker of Cove Point Lighthouse, which was acquired by the Calvert County Government in 2000. The museum is located in Solomons, Maryland, just 7 miles south of the lighthouse site. Our three themes include Maritime History of the local area, Paleontology of the Calvert Cliffs, and the Estuarine Biology of the local waters. The Calvert Marine Museum is open 7 days a week except for certain holidays, from 10:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M. We offer a 1-hour boat tour of the Patuxent River, opportunity to tour the Drum Point Lighthouse, a children's Discovery Room, and many other fun and interesting opportunities. The museum has been open since 1970 and was created by several locals who wanted to preserve the quickly-changing heritage of the area. Its mission is to preserve, protect, and educate the community about the Chesapeake Bay and surrounding area.
Why Lusby, MD, USA:
The property is one of just a few authentic lighthouses still in operation. It is a wonderful combination of privacy and peacefulness combined with easy access to restaurants, art galleries, and entertainment.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The home sits right on its own private beach with direct access to the Chesapeake Bay. Not to mention the view of the light shining down across the water at night is breathtaking.
