About Nate O.

Avid sailing couple working in healthcare and consulting.

Nate O. purchased this house in 2014

Why Nate O. chose Annapolis

We love the peace and quiet of living just outside of Annapolis. There are wonderful schools and our neighborhood feels like a forest. We can walk from the house down to the Chesapeake Bay on hiking trails. Annapolis hosts numerous competitive sailing events year round.

What makes this house unique

Our home rests on a property filled with ecological diversity. We have 90 foot popular trees, spice bushes, dog woods, tulip trees, hydrangeas, tulips, hostas, crocus and many other species safely growing on our land. We have rooted out invasive species and the result is a woodland retreat.

Extraordinary Home

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in Nate's beautiful home attending our daughter's graduation and commissioning from the U.S. Naval Academy. The home is spacious, modern and well appointed. The property is over 2 acres of lush, abundant and gorgeous forest surrounding the home making it very private and secluded. We took full advantage of the newly installed hot tub on the back deck. Our youngest two children (12 & 13 yrs old) and our Australian Shepherds explored every trail on the property and appreciated the opportunity to burn off energy in the woods. The house is conveniently located to the Naval Academy and Annapolis.

There was plenty of room to have a large group of family, friends and fellow graduates over to celebrate their esteemed accomplishment. We enjoyed the opportunity to provide a sumptuous meal and party in their honor. The home is perfect for a large gathering and the big barbecue grill and huge kitchen afforded the ability to host and entertain our guests. The large and long driveway provide parking for all.

I would highly recommend this home to anyone planning a visit to the beautiful city of Annapolis. It is perfect for a romantic getaway or spacious enough to accommodate a large family reunion. We appreciate Nate sharing his lovely home and allowing us to bring our pets along to celebrate this auspicious occasion. Thank you.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

The property was just what we were looking for. The owners were accommodating, responsive, and nice enough to leave us a bottle of champagne to celebrate with. The big open floor plan and multiple patios were perfect for entertaining and the beautiful, secluded, woodsy feel with all the big windows, but just 10 minutes from downtown annapolis, was fantastic. Couldn't have been happier with the place.

Tranquil Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Well I came home with ideas to add to my own home. What a great, clean modern home. Has everything you need. The office can accommodate an air mattress and then 3 other bedrooms are all very tidy and clean. The patio is great and the location of the home couldn't be better. An easy 8 minute Uber ride from Downtown Annapolis. The owner had a candle lit and some treats to share. From the moment we arrived to the house, we felt cozy and relaxed. All we had to do was pop the bottle and connect the music to the Bluetooth speaker. WIFI ready. Didn't use a TV, so couldn't tell you about cable. Would have LOVED to stay longer.

Clean, modern, in a quiet rustic setting

  • 5 of 5

Nate was very good to work with, answered any questions we had, and had the place perfectly clean when we checked in. He even left wine and a guidebook for the local area. I would recommend both the house and Nate Owens to anyone looking for a house with three bedrooms and plenty of space.

Wonderful stay at the Woodland Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented the home for a Mothers Day Getaway. We couldn't have been happier with the accommodations, the location and the hospitality. The home is even more beautiful than in the pictures. Very clean and comfortable, with modern appliances and amenities. The location is a perfect! The home is set back off of quiet residential road, but just a short drive from downtown Annapolis. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and the kids had plenty of safe space to roam and play. Nate was the perfect host, very responsive and he answered any questions we had about the rental/ location. Go ahead and book your stay, you won't be disappointed!
