About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Relax on the deck overlooking the fishing and sailboats of Flag Harbor opening onto the Chesapeake Bay. Only a three minute walk to the big sand beach famous for fossils from the Miocene period. Very quiet and not crowded. Great fishing from the beach or charter a boat. Shallow water makes for great swimming, even for kids. Bring your well behaved dog to enjoy the beach and swimming with you.

Washington DC or Annapolis is only one hour away, and the entire Chesapeake Bay area is steeped in history. Just 15 minutes from the shops and restaurants of Solomons Island, and the terrific Marine Museum there. Many state parks for hiking and birdwatching.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We love this area for a quick get-a-way: our neighbors are friendly and helpful, and the beach is peaceful and beautiful! We enjoy watching the eagles and ospreys fish, and the large schools of fish that can be seen in the (usually) clear water.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Leonard, MD, USA:
We found this peaceful and friendly spot by chance - it's so close to the Washington DC area. The community is very dog-friendly, and when we are alone on the beach, they can romp in the waves off the leash. There aren't dangerous tides, and seldom rough water.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We have discovered the fun of fossil hunting, or just sitting at the beach and reading and re-charging our energies. The light, wind, and water are constantly changing. You can walk the beach for hours.
