About the property

Breath-taking Waterfront Property with Historic Cottage

Come enjoy this historic home and estate. The views are spectacular and will take your breath away! The property features a historic home, secluded privacy on over 11 acres of waterfront property, mature trees and stunning views of the river.

The covered pier is provided for guests who would like to bring their own boat and a launch ramp is just down the street. If you don't have your own boat feel free to use one of our kayaks or canoe. Fishing is good and many guests have good luck direcctly off the pier. Others choose to paddle out to nearby Sharkstooth Island and fish along the way.

2015 was the first year we have offered the property to the public and the response has been overwhelming. Currioman Landings is a very special place to us, we are sure that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Over the last 18 months the property has been extensively remodeled to ensure it is pleasant and worry free for guests. Noteworthy updates include:

Interior paint, carpet and fixtures - New HVAC and air conditioning - New master bathroom - New pier and boat slips - Wireless high speed internet - Updated landscaping.

New for 2016:

*Boats - We have added a sunfish sailboat, a canoe, a single kayak and a tandem kayak for guest use.

*Bikes - Several bikes are now located at the house for exploring the local countryside.

*Lawn games - Nothing says summer like a game of croquet in the front yard.

*Second furnace and AC unit added for the second floor to ensure things stay cool in the really hot stretches.

About Joe Lambert

Our family has owned this home for four generations. We enjoy spending time on the river, playing games in the field or simply sitting in the shade and enjoying the view.

Why Joe Lambert chose Chesapeake Bay

Currioman Landings sits atop a steep bluff over the Potomac which is miles wide at that point. Most people find that the property offers a really unique escape from the day to day stress of life. From watching the resident bald eagles or walking in the gardens to playing in the river this is one of our favorite places to be.

What makes this cottage unique

Tall mature trees and wide yards provide exceptional privacy while allowing plenty of room for a large family to spread out.

Wildlife - 2016 is shaping up to be one of the better wildlife years in recent recollection. We've had two eagles take up residence on the property as well as a rotating cast of herons and other sea birds. The beavers in the creek are busy working on their den and we even have the occasional dear that will wander by.

Relaxing and refreshing

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed observing the birds flying, diving, and fishing. The house is spacious and wonderfully comfortable, but crying out for some TLC and minor repairs. The new boat dock is very sturdy and well built. Thanks to the owners for preserving such an amazing home.

First off, the views were unbelievable! It was a perfect getaway to refresh my spirit. It is only two hours from DC which made it close enough to get to easily, but it seemed like a world away. I went in February, so the water was too cold to use the boats, but for people who liked to play on the water I think they would be fun. The best part for me was being able to take my dog and the fun he had running on the property. He is a greyhound, but my service dog, so he doesn't get to run very often. He used the outside of the house like a race track and it was so much fun to see his joy as he raced around the perimeter of the house.

I took my sewing machine and sat it up in the large dining area, which had wall-to-wall windows and fantastic views of the river. What a great way to spend my time! I also enjoyed reading and watching TV in front of the wood-burning fireplace.

The beds were comfortable. And there was plenty of space if someone wanted to bring more people .

I hope to come back some time with my family. Thank you Joe for sharing your house!

Wonderful Thanksgiving Week!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful house for the Thanksgiving holidays to spend with my daughter and son-in-law who is a Marine stationed at Quantico. The drive to the house is beautiful. The house is very inviting and cozy. We cooked an entire Thanksgiving feast and had most everything we could want or need in the kitchen. The men canoed and enjoyed walking the wonderful property. The beds are comfy and the rooms are large enough to spread out. This house is a great opportunity to unplug and refuel. The view of the bay is breathtaking. Joe is the perfect rental owner. Always answered right away and made us feel welcome and at home. Thank you, Joe, for allowing us to share in the history of your place!

privacy and beauty!

  • 5 of 5

We had our sons wedding reception here and stayed 4 nights. It was perfect for our family get together. We enjoyed everything the land and house had to offer. I am sitting here, drinking my coffee on the wonderful screened in porch, watching the sun rise on the water. It doesn't get any better. The house was well stocked and plenty of room for my family. Took the canoe out to sharks tooth island. The grandkids had a ball searching for teeth. Thank you Joe for opening up this wonderful property. We will for sure be back!

Great spot for families or friends with Awesome views!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over New Year's eve and had a great time!! We needed a place for a few couples and our dogs and this was perfect!! The dogs loved the large lot and exploring all over. The house has amazing views! There is an island that appears during low tide, and it was great for the dogs and fun for the group. One of our friends even found a sharks tooth!! The house itself was very clean and well equipped with all our needs. There was enough cooking supplies for all our meals. Joseph was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. Overall we all had a great time, and look forward to going back when the weather is a little warmer. I would highly recommend this place for your next adventure. Thanks so much!

I can't wait to return

  • 5 of 5

Driving down the cedar-lined driveway and coming upon this beautiful, historic home with the Potomac River in view-was an amazing experience. During daylight, one sees and hears all of the sounds, smells and sights of pure nature. At night, I saw more stars than I ever have-and was kept company by a lone owl, softly whooing. The home is abundant with architectural changes that showcase the stunning views of the water and the spacious and groomed grounds. Every comfort is provided for. The kitchen is a step back in time-as if you are a child again in your grandparents kitchen of warmth and joy-yet with every very modern appliance.Truly a joy to be in this room! I found every single area clean, organized and well supplied. The owner is so very kind, informative and available....he even answered me quickly when I was concerned about a sweet, friendly, neighborhood dog that came by for some belly rubs before heading back to it's home! I truly cannot await my next stay.

Currioman Landings sits on Currioman Bay, while technically part of the Potomac river the water is so wide here you might guess that you're looking at the Chesapeake. The local area is very rural, you may go an entire week without seeing a neighbor. We enjoy the area for the privacy, birds and natural views.
