About Lolly and Lindley

Lolly and Lindley purchased this House in 2003
Why Lolly and Lindley chose Tall Timbers
Tall Timbers is a sleepy waterfront community. It is where people pass slow summer days; and huge Rockfish are caught in the creeks, crabs from docks. There are more places to paddle than you will have time available to visit: *Historic Old Mill Gift Store, *Historic St. Mary’s City *One Room Little red schoolhouse *Drayden Afro-American school house. *Piney Point Light House and Museum *German U-Boat Underwater Park *The Patuxent River Naval Air Museum (PAX) *Point Lookout State Park and Civil War Museum *Sotterley Plantation, *St. Clement's Island-Potomac River Museum *Calvert Maritime Museum. *Anna Marie Gardens and Sculpture Forest. During the winter the community is magical and can be winter wonderland. Fall colors are magnificent, especially when you realize you are not the one to rake the leaves. Just watch them fall. Be on the look out for deep discounts of midweek - midwinter visits.

Peaceful living and amazing sunsets
My son and I took a mom-and-son trip before he enlists in the Navy and found this gem in our former home area of Southern Maryland. The home was spotless, attractive, and quiet. The owners were very responsive and super nice. The sunset over the water was stunning! My son had a blast at the beach. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly, the kids giggling running home from the beach was perfect. It was also very nice to have 2 bedrooms and access to a washer and dryer at this point in our trip. I would love to bring my husband up there the next time!
My husband and I stayed for four nights in September. We loved the house and the setting, seeing a peak of the Potomac River and the beautiful sunsets at night. It was relaxing and quiet. The potential for the hurricane was looming in a few days making it cloudy and humid, but the house was comfortably cool. It only rained at night!
While we were there we explored St. Mary's City which we enjoyed, lunch at the college cafeteria was a feast, Leonardtown had a great used bookstore that we enjoyed and an interesting antique store. A visit to the Piney Point lighthouse was interesting as well.
We found the house well stocked for cooking. We took our small outdoor table top grill with us so we enjoyed several grilled meals. A Weis grocery store was a few miles away with a busy liquor store next door. The last night we ate at the marina which was fun. Friendly staff.
We enjoyed our stay immensely and would recommend it highly.
It was just what we were looking for.
The home was nestled in the tall trees yet near the water. The kitchen was well stocked and we fixed several meals there. Our host was very helpful about the area. The house was clean and comfortable.
The cottage was perfect for my family! It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Lolly & Lindy made it feel like home as they were extremely helpful from start to finish!!
Great place on the Chesapeake!
Really beautiful and comfortable home between the Potomac and Chesapeake. Very close to a marina where I dropped my kayak and paddled around a calm bay exploring the nooks and crannies for two hours. Loved it!
Joseph, YeS!!! I agree the kayaking and canoeing around here is spectacular. Most people get to know Tall Timbers during the summer boating activities, and family reunions but this corner of the world is wonderful year around. I love the ice formations on the piers, and the remote snowy vistas. Museums and Art Galleries and Wineries are open all year long.
The Tall Timbers Marina, a family operated full service marina with a wonderful neighborhood bar and cafe. Be sure to ask about seasonal hours. Chiefs is located behind the post office and grocery store and is open year round for both food and merriment.
Only two hours from the Washington Beltway you will find walking along the bulkhead an easy quiet stroll.
There are fishing charters, day sails and historic properties and parks to visit.
The road in front of the house along the river is a great place for kids to learn to ride bikes or take the dog for a walk.
The River is 3 miles across to Virginia with magnificent sunsets not far from where the Potomac River flows into the Chesapeake Bay.
St. Mary's City (Colonial Historic Interpretive Park) is an easy 15 miles drive and a wonderful place to visit for the entire family.
A little further down the road is Point Lookout where you can catch a ferry to Chesapeake Bay Islands, visit the historic Coast Guard Station, the Civil War Hospital Site, or see where the Potomac Rivers and Pautuxent Rivers empty into the Chesapeake Bay.
The county seat at with more historic sites, wine tasting, festivals, fairgrounds and fishing carter boats are all nearby. To read more about our area we are in area known as Southern Maryland, along the shores of the National Parks scenic water-way.
