Point Lookout House Rental Photos and Description

7 Bedroom, 5 Bath Classic Beach Cottage With All The Amenities

nchgarth will captivate you with its amazing views and open floor plan. Use the sweeping Florida room to gather everyone in a common space with water views abounding. There is no lack of private space either. With seven bedrooms and 5 fully renovated baths between the upper and lower levels, you and your guests will enjoy the beach in luxury. Perfect for families or groups (if you are a small group and it's outside summer season, inquire about lower rates for upstairs only rental).

In addition to an indoor Florida room, Inchgarth Cottage has a beautiful deck overlooking the water with great breezes and exquisite views, too. Glass doors highlight the views whether you are cooking, playing games, reading or watching television. Step out the glass sliders, a few steps down the deck and the private beach awaits you.

With 2 kayaks and 4 bicycles included in the rental, touring the Bay, the estuaries or the Park is a breeze. Ospreys, herons, bald eagles, pelicans and other natural beauties are outside the door or tucked away in nearby estuaries where kayaking in a peaceful setting is magnificent!

Scotland Yards makes your stay easy. We provide guests with towels, linens, kitchen supplies, paper towels, soaps, shampoo and everything you need to truly get away. Just bring yourselves and your food and your personal effects.

Our guests frequently comment that they rarely want to leave once they arrive. For those who so choose to venture out, a lovely local winery, historic St Mary's City, various historical plantations and other destinations such as Solomon's Island, Leonardtown and St. George's Island provide entertainment.

Young children love the Calvert Marine Museum, about 30 miles away on Solomon's Island.

With a private beach in front while nestled in a wooded, small beach community, guests have the best of woods and water. This is not a boardwalk! But, If you want luxury accommodations, waves lulling you to sleep, kayaking and otherwise enjoying a secluded beach setting, Inchgarth awaits you.

Beautiful getaway on gorgeous private beach

  • 5 of 5

Spent 4 nights at the house with a bunch of toddlers and moms and had a wonderful time. The house was well maintained and spacious. The two floors are actually separate units, which meant that some folks had to walk outside and around the house outside to get to their bedrooms, but provided a bonus kitchen which translated into brownies cooking simultaneously with dinner, so it's hard to complain. The property managers were more than attentive to a couple of random glitches upon arrival and everything else was smooth the remainder of the stay. As for the outside of the house, the pictures do not lie - private beach on the bay where all you can see is water. Gorgeous, gorgeous, would definitely stay here agin.

Amazing house, fantastic owner

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself, and three kids had an amazing four days at this home. Unlike other houses, this one comes fully equipped with beautiful decor, full kitchen, well stocked pantry, even laundry facilities. The beach was a perfect, few steps away. The whole family couldn't have been more happy with the bike riding, swimming, and crabbing. I can't wait to go back again. Counting the days for another blissful retreat.

True Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Inchgarth was absolutely beautiful. As soon as we arrived and saw the view, we forgot all of our troubles. We did not even mind that our car broke down and had to be repaired while we were there. Thanks to the property managers (Bob and Rob) who fixed us up with their local mechanic. They are the best! We have been booking with Scotland Yards for several years and plan on returning. Peggy's detail to décor and amenities make the vacation truly unforgettable.

Inchgarth was perfect in every way, I almost don't want to write a review so we can keep it a secret! The location is great, a short trip from DC without any bridge traffic! The setting couldn't be more beautiful. The house itself is beautiful, tastefully decorated and plenty of space to accommodate a large group. The provided linens make everything so easy and the beds are amazingly comfortable. Three families enjoyed a long weekend and our kids made wonderful memories. We are looking forward to our next trip to Scotland!!

Wonderful weekend getaway from DC

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip renting from Peggy/Scotland Yards Rentals. Our friends that had not been before loved it. They could not believe how beautiful the house, water view, and small sandy beach were. The picturesque location, decoration and attention to detail of the homes, kayaks, and pet friendly homes will make us return here again, and hopefully soon! Previously we rented Kentigern's Shed since there was only 2 of us. We rented Inchgarth since we needed more than 5 bedrooms and would stay at either again in a heartbeat.

Birthday GetAway & Family Retreat

  • 4 of 5


Peggy (owner) was responsive and great to deal with. I had several questions and Peggy answered them all. Reservation was smooth and easy.


There's really no curb appeal as you approach the home, which I's deceiving. You enter the top level from the beach side and immediately see how beautiful the home really is. I had a question within 10 minutes of being there and the local property managers (Rob & Bob) came within 15 minutes to check on my inquiry. They were pleasant and helpful.


The furnishings and amenities were wonderful. We are a family of 5 + a dog and rented the entire property (upstairs and beach level). The levels have separate entrances. As mentioned, the upstairs entrance is on the beach side and the beach level (bottom) is on the woods/street side. Upstairs has 4 BRs, none of which have TVs, 2 have en suite baths. The pics are accurate but the property is much more beautiful in person. The bottom level has 3 BRs, all of which have TVs and only the master has an en suite bath. Both levels have everything you need. The beds and linens were all very nice. My family enjoyed the main fireplace. There is one on the bottom level but the owner disclosed that it is being changed from wood to gas so we did not use it. Two kayaks and 2 life vests (1 adult one child size). 4 bikes (some have loose handle bars but nothing a wrench can't fix. There was even complimentary soap, shampoo, and laundry detergent for those that might need it.


The home is a beachfront property. The views are spectacular, and alone are worth renting this home. This is not an area to travel to if nature, relaxing, and real quality time is not what you are seeking. We visited the Gym/Rec at St Mary's College and enjoyed a workout and basketball there. Be sure to check the swimming pool times if you are interested in going for a swim there...swim times vary day-to-day.


Excellent stay! I will be back.
