About the property

Wonderful home for attending Herrington Harbour events or exploring the Bay.

The home is tastefully decorated and stocked with many home comforts (new mattresses, new sofa, plenty of pillows and plush towels, a stocked kitchen for cooking, etc.) along with a dining table that can seat up to 10. The home is located within 2 blocks from Herrington Harbour South Marina/Herrington on The Bay. It is a great home for friends visiting stay-a-board boaters, attending a wedding or other event at Herrington on The Bay, or wanting to explore the Chesapeake Bay. This home sleeps 8 people very comfortably with three bedrooms - 1 king (master bedroom), 1 queen (guest bedroom), and two bunk beds (semi-private, loft style bedroom with 4 twin beds total).

About Kathy Paroulek

We are a family of four that loves to sail and explore the Chesapeake Bay. Our sailboat brought us to Herrington Harbour South and then to Rose Haven. We purchased this home because staying the weekend on our small sailboat was becoming too "rough". We love the area and want to be able to enjoy all Herrington Harbour South and the Chesapeake Bay has to offer for more than just a day trip. We live in Virginia, but the Bay Bungalow is our special retreat from our everyday lives. We hope you will be able to experience the Bay Bungalow too and make some special memories of your own!

Kathy Paroulek purchased this house in 2014

Why Kathy Paroulek chose Central

This home is very conveniently located to Herrington Harbour South Marina/Herrington on The Bay, North Beach, and Chesapeake Beach with a 45 minute drive to Annapolis, MD and Washington DC. This is a great home for parents of the bride or groom that would like to entertain a special dinner or lunch before the big day. The layout of the home is great for a large group dinner or drinks with a large dining table and a nice deck and backyard - think bridesmaid luncheon before the big walk down the aisle, after dinner drinks the night before the wedding, etc. This home can easily and comfortably accommodate guests of a wedding or other special event, guests visiting stay-a-board boaters from Herrington Harbour South, or family or friends wanting a nice escape from everyday life while enjoying the Chesapeake Bay.

Lovely spacious home and great backyard!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Bay Bungalow! It's an absolutely beatiful home, fully stocked with all your kitchen needs, and plenty of space with a nice, fenced backyard that our dog loved. The owner is very responsive and easy to work with; she even let us do an earlier check-in time for no extra cost, which was incredibly helpful! Very close, walking distance to Herrington on the Bay. We really enjoyed our stay! Would highly recommend this for families or groups of friends.

The house is beautiful! Love all the decorative touches and was such a comfortable stay. The whole family enjoyed themselves. You really thought of everyone's needs and it felt like home. The house was very clean and nice.

Stay was fine.

  • 4 of 5

Thought it is was a three bedroom, but the room with the twin beds is an open area. It worked out because I had two children, but would not have been good if all were adults. Cleanliness was no problem.

Owner's Response: Thank you for bringing the bunk-bed bedroom details to my attention. I am going to update my listing, so it will clearly state how the bedroom is configured. The bedroom with two bunk-beds is semi-private. It is a loft style bedroom, so it is upstairs and away from the living areas downstairs, but the bedroom does not have a door. Also, to enter the guest bedroom with the queen size bed, you must walk through the bunk-bed bedroom. The guest bedroom with the queen size bed is private with a door. The upstairs level of the home only consists of these two bedrooms. Both bathrooms are located downstairs. The master bedroom has a bathroom attached to it, and the guest bathroom is located at the bottom of the stairs. Please, email or call with any questions you may have regarding the layout of the home. I would not want any future guests to be burdened or put out during their stay due to the bedroom and/or home layout. I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

absolutely fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Extremely well stocked house, great cozy space, lots of separate spots for folks to spread out.

So close to everything and the cute little birds nest with baby birds living on the wreath on the front door was icing on the cake, very storybook location.

Lovely home and responsive hosts

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. Comfortable beds and nice sheets. Terr8fic back yard.

We were there for our daughter's wedding at Herrington on the Bay which was super convenient. And kitchen well equipped.

Be aware there is no bathroom on second floor and that room with bunk beds is not private (no door separating it from downstairs and is the passageway to the private bedroom on the second floor).

Quick Stay for a Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Easy to find, easy to get into, flexible and responsive owner. The place was perfect, clean and cute. We liked the boat oar railing on the stairs. Walked to the wedding and frankly we were happy to return to each time to such a clean and comfortable place. Beds were very good and very comfortable. AC was great. Good attempt on the coffee machine, (one of those grind and brew machines) but we couldn't figure it out maybe just keurig would suffice. Deli around the corner was good.
