Overview

About the property

1 1/2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

If you love a small but creative and well-appointed beach house directly on the water - one with modern amenities and an amazing screened porch, Kentigern's 'Shed' (built on the site of the former shed) is for you (1 queen bedroom plus one queen murphy bed and one bath). This 2 story modern beach house is newly built and perfect for a couple or a small party. The house has everything you really need for a relaxing weekend away or vacation.

Situated directly on Chesapeake, hear the waves while you cook, read or relax; see diverse wildlife including, herons, swans, ospreys, bald eagles, and pelicans through expansive glass windows or from the screened-in porch. Or, grab a beach chair or towel and head for the sandy beach. With two kayaks and 2 bicycles provided with the rental (more can be rented for an additional fee, if needed), Kentigern's Shed is a spot you won't want to leave. Enjoy local oysters, a weekend wine tasting at nearby Woodlawn plantation, kayak, fish, sunbathe or just kick back and relax.

A short-bike ride away is Point Lookout State Park, a Civil War site. Today the park, which is located at the intersection of the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River, hosts miles of protected land set aside for biking, kayaking, boating, fishing, camping or enjoying nature as well as a museum that provides a historical perspective on the region. Or charter a boat at one of many local marinas for a day of fishing on the Bay. Another nearby historical site is St. Mary's City (10 miles), the original capital of Maryland. Visitors are 25 minutes from dining and shopping on Solomon's Island or in historic Leonardtown. Or enjoy one of several local marina restaurants. Want a day trip away? All that the nation's capital has to offer is a short 80 miles away.

Collect shells and beach glass while walking miles along the sandy beach. So close to Washington and other major cities, yet so far!

About Peggy Binzel

Works in Washington by the week; escapes to Scotland and the Chesapeake Bay by the weekend!

Why Peggy Binzel chose Scotland

Chesapeake Bay in front; Hollis Lake to the South and wooded land to the west - a beautiful combination.

What makes this house unique

Relaxation and local charm, just what I needed

  • 5 of 5

The Shed is a fabulous space, right on the water with a little beach. Quiet, but friendly folks nearby. I loved exploring the area. Our dog enjoyed it just as much.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We love the house and beachfront property. The house had everything we needed. We rode bikes, kayaked, floated in bay, strolled beach, crabbed, and had bonfires by the water. This house is a family favorite!

Fun waterfront property- beautiful sunrises!

  • 5 of 5

This "tiny house" suited our family of 4 (two teenage boys!) and our dog nicely for 5 days. The house makes fun and creative use of space and the location is quiet and beautiful. We kayaked and paddleboarded at our leisure and our dog loved swimming in the bay. The state park is an interesting excursion and Slack winery is a feast for the senses. The owners give accurate descriptions of the local things to do and see which led us to a fantastic crabbing trip with Phil Langley! Look him up- he will make your fishing experience far better than you can imagine.
