About the Property

Large Private Waterfront Property With Boat Dock, Boat Launch Ramp, And Beach

Vacation house on large waterfront parcel ( 2+ acres), located in upscale Mill Creek neighborhood just north of the Naval Academy. Very private and a beautiful setting. Property is ideal for large families or informal social gatherings under 100 people - such as small parties, reunions, informal weddings, etc. Neighborhood appreciates quiet after 10pm and whispering on dock after dark. Property has significant waterfront frontage including: boat dock with 6 feet of deep water, driveway ramp into Mill Creek for launching power boats from trailer, boat house, and a sandy beach covered with large shade trees. Property also has a big level grass field for volleyball, games, camping (limited to 5 tents with permission)

House, 'The Briarpatch', is a large rustic 'A-frame' with 3 levels which sleeps 12 dormitory style (no privacy), and has 2 full baths. House is comfortable but not luxurious. House is heated, air conditioned, and modestly furnished:
- Main level: full bath, kitchen with exterior deck, and living room with large exterior deck overlooking the water. Living room has 3 large couches, one of which converts into an uncomfortable double bed.
- Second level: full bath, and large room which contains 4 double beds and 6 individual pull down bunks. Pull down bunks designed for children or individuals less than 125 pounds.
- Third level “crow’s nest”: small space which contains a 3" full size memory foam mattress, ideal for youngsters who can climb up the ladder.
- Lower level: washer and dryer, additional refrigerator, storage/utilities, lumpy ping pong table, and some outdoor games.

Mill Creek is home to numerous upscale waterfront properties with an abundance of sail and power boats, several marinas, and a popular waterfront restaurant uniquely designed for boaters. Mill Creek opens to the Chesapeake Bay just north of the Naval Academy.

Pets are acceptable but we just had new rugs installed. Pets must be house trained PLEASE!! They must be leashed at all times when outdoors. Neighbors have 2 black labs, and another neighbor has a yellow lab. Very friendly but running loose.

Boat house contains two kayaks, a canoe, a dinghy, inflatable rafts, paddles, and life-jackets which renters are welcome to use. They MUST be hosed off and returned clean to the boathouse.

There are 2 fire pits: one on the beach and one beside the house. There are piles of firewood (in the woods) available for burning in the firepits. Please don't have fires if too windy!

There is fishing and crabbing off the dock. 4 large crab traps are available for use.

Owner's power boat is parked on a trailer near the boat house. Owner's 30 foot sailboat is moored at the end of the dock. If owner comes down to Annapolis for boating while property is rented, renters may be invited to go for a boat ride.

If you return the property in the same clean and orderly condition as it was when you checked-in, you will avoid a $200 cleaning fee. In addition to routine house cleaning, clean-up includes bagging all interior and exterior trash in large, black plastic bags (which are provided) and placing them in the trash cans WITH LIDS. Sunday night ALL trash must be taken to the top of our driveway at the end of the asphalt road for collection early Monday morning. If staying mid week and you have tons of trash, you will be taking it with you.

To finalize reservations, guests are requested to sign a standard 'Rental Agreement' which summarizes the applicable dates, security deposit, rent, and house rules.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1960

About the owner: My parents were the original owners of property. When they passed it was passed down to me and my brother and sister. I try to keep up with the tax payments by renting it out and so far people have really enjoyed the place!

Why the Owner Chose Annapolis, MD, USA:
At first it was a jungle and you couldn't see water because it was a creek full of seaweed and wildlife! But about 1970, all that changed. DDT killed off the seaweed and made it into a boat able paradise!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's peaceful there. You can swim, fish, try to catch crabs, or just relax in a hammock.
