The property was exactly as advertised. We were there for a small, relaxing family reunion. We loved the fishing, caught some crabs and used the kayaks constantly. Appreciated it's proximity to Annapolis, where we spent two days. Each of the three decks were extensively used and the hot tub was a big hit. The kitchen had all we could ask for. I liked that the dining room was open to the kitchen so that at meal times those eating in the kitchen did not feel that far from the dining room. LOTS of space and felt very cozy. Enough little nooks to hide in when the family became "too" close. Communication was great, Theresa met us our first day which was very helpful. Would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend to others.

4 night stay in August at Driftwood Lodge

  • 5 of 5

This property is as lovely as it looks in the photos. The surrounding gardens are beautiful. The property was perfect for our extended family gathering of 12 people, ages 17 through 86. The view of the Chesapeake Bay is gorgeous. Despite the August heat, shaded areas of the property were comfortable with breezes from the Bay. The house air conditioning system functioned well. The kitchen had all we needed. It is important to note that swimming in the Chesapeake is not a great idea in August due to jellyfish ("sea nettles"). The immediate neighborhood is residential and quiet, with scenic areas for jogging and walking. There is plenty of parking.

This house had everything to make our stay comfortable. Location was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen was well equipped. The beds were comfortable. The scenery was breathtaking. We did not have to leave the property. The fire pit and hot tub made the evenings enjoyable. It was only 15 minutes to store and church. The owner and realtor were only a phone call away. The neighborhood was an enjoyable place to take a walk. The local beaches were great places to find seaglass and driftwood. Looking forward to another stay in this great house.
