Overview

About the property

One bedroom cottage with full kitchen, florida room and deck

Charming. Romantic. Classic. This Chesapeake Bay Beach Cottage is perfect for a couple or a single. A great get away.

Culag - Scottish Gaelic for 'wee one back behind,' is a classic Chespeake Bay cottage but there is nothing 'wee' about its beautiful views or setting. This cottage is fully renovated with one bedroom, one bath, full kitchen and gorgeous Bay views at a price you can afford. Perfect for a single, a couple or a small family, Culag offers private beach access and beach activities, like swimming, kayaking or lounging - all within a few hundred feet from the front door.

This beautifully decorated one bedroom, one bath whispers 'relax, kick your shoes off, put your feet up and unwind.' Culag also provides a Florida room plus washer and dryer, giving you everything you need to make your visit perfect.

Enjoy coffee on your private deck surrounded with Bay views, then wander down to the beach. Kayak the Bay or the many secluded creeks filled with wildlife and solitude. Or, bike down to Pt. Lookout Park, only a few miles away. 2 Kayaks and 2 bicycles are provided for your exclusive use. Or, take the kids crabbing in nearby Hollis Lake behind the beach (more like a pond) or fishing at Pt. Lookout State Park.

Look in one direction and enjoy the beauty of the Bay views, look the other direction and to find peaceful wooded forests. Enjoy them both... in one package. Herons, egrets, osprey, pelicans - and, occasionally, porpoises provide great wildlife watching.

Historic St. Mary's City, the original capital of Maryland is 10 miles away and Solomon's Island, St. George's Island and other resort communities are short drives - but who wants to leave?

Only 2 hours from Washington or Baltimore, make Culag your getaway retreat - over and over.

If Culag is booked for the dates you desire, we have another modern, nearby small Chesapeake Bay waterfront property with amazing view. Email and ask us other options for your stay.

About Peggy Binzel

Love urban life; also, love the isolated beach with amazing wildlife. Scotland is a welcome retreat from hectic city life.

Peggy Binzel purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Peggy Binzel chose Point Lookout

Scotland is a rare find. Rarely do you find an area that begins with beautiful forests and opens up onto fabulous beaches. Little traffic but only 2 hours from Washington or Baltimore. I discovered a jewel.

What makes this cottage unique

Sunrise over the Bay with morning coffee is heavenly. Walks on the beach. Take a 30 minute kayak ride or a 5 hours one - very convenient out the front door. Enjoy a tasting of good quality local wines at beautiful Woodlawn plantation just 10 miles away.

Wooded and beach together, this remote location on the Chesapeake Bay is near the city but a world away. A short bike ride from Pt. Lookout State Park but still its own private beach community. A great escape to relax, enjoy the beauty of the Bay, boat, fish swim or read a book on the beach,

Hidden gem near the DC area

  • 5 of 5

I have come to love Scotland over the years. It's truly a hidden gem in the DC area. Quiet and cozy with good access to the beach and seafood! It was a super cold weekend, but was also perfectly happy staying inside relaxing and enjoying local oysters and fish :). The house is cozy and lovely. A perfect place if you want to unplug and rest. I do wish that the house had some basic spices (i.e. salt...). Keep that in mind for your next visit.

Peggy is super responsive and reliable - makes the weekend getaway easy!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comment. This is a beautiful, hidden little surprise. We do our best to make our guests comfortable while they enjoy a retreat in this gorgeous natural setting. We do hear your request to make sure basic spices like salt and pepper are stocked in the kitchen and will do so. We appreciate all our guests' suggestions.

Extremely clean, cozy property steps to water and able to relax on patio under the stars

  • 5 of 5

Amazing. We will be back. Everything you need in a clean cozy cottage with views of bay off your patio or sun room. This is a gold mine coming from busy D.C. Area to enjoy nature and truly have a relaxing g experience. Our dogs made furry neighborhood friends and are very sad to be leaving. If you just need a reset and some quiet Country with private beach access- it's a must!!

Relaxing And Slow Paced Venue To Recharge

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I try to find places to vacation that are on the more quiet side and where we can enjoy the outdoors. We avoid touristy developed areas as much as possible. The cottage fit the bill. It is on a quiet private community road in an area surrounded only by the bay and woods. Very tranquil. There are no resorts or hotels in the area. Just a state park, a general store that was entertaining, a couple of restaurants, and a Dollar General.

Our typical day was a slow start, followed by reading on the quiet beach, walking, biking, and kayaking. We'd shower around 5 PM then head about 5 miles down the road to one of two restaurants in the area. No long drives. You could head about 30 minutes away to get to more distractions but that wasn't our goal.

The cottage itself was quaint, clean, and updated. The bed was comfortable. We had everything we needed. There was a maintanance person close by that responded immediately when a bike had a flat tire.

I can't think of anything else to add. If you need lots of distractions, the cottage may not be for you. If you like quiet and relaxing with outdoor activities, go here. We'll be back.
