About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

Comfortable Chesapeake Bay Waterfront Log Cabin in Exclusive Private Community

Best view on the Bay, only an hour’s Drive from Washington DC, and 25 minutes north of Solomons Island. Relax under a virgin tree canopy while gazing at the indigo Chesapeake from our Cliffside chairs!

Charming, well maintained spacious cottage perched high on the Calvert Cliffs of the Western Shore of the Bay with a 180 degree view. Watch the bald eagles soaring by the cliff and the ocean freighters and crab boats plying the waters of the Bay. This unique log home includes all the modern conveniences with a whimsical atmosphere, decorated with world treasures, antiques and Miocene Era shark’s teeth.

You will find yourself nestled under a tall canopy of trees in a private country-club-like setting with two miles of white sand beach and fabulous recreational amenities. The 300 acre secure community with its private roads, pristeen outdoor swimming pool, two excellent tennis courts, community house, boat ramp, and 5 hiking trails will engage your family in complete relaxation, all without leaving the protected community.

The two mile sand beach offers some of the best fossil hunting opportunities on the East Coast. Here you can stroll the beach and find pre-historic shark’s teeth and fossils. Families love the gentle surf and natural streams where children love to build sand castles and splash in the Bay’s sand bars, just a short 10 minute walk from the house. The beach offers lovely shade in the afternoon; a beach umbrella is included for your mornings. In addition, the community’s expansive South Beach is a 5 minute drive, where one finds picnic tables, parking, boat ramp, and port-a-potty. Bring your kayaks and canoes; we have our own boat rack on the beach, and there are wonderful opportunities to explore Parker’s Creek Nature Preserve.

The open floor plan with cathedral ceiling living room has superb Bay views, comfortable seating and a computer table. The adjoining dining porch with screened Andersen windows seats 8 at table, and also offers a lovely conversation area where you can enjoy the constantly-changing water views or cozy up with a book.

Two comfortable bedrooms, each with Euro-top double bedding, dresser and large closet, a children’s sleeping loft with an upgraded double bed, and a single bed in the living room provide many sleeping options, accommodates 5.

Recently upgraded kitchen includes newer range, large refrigerator with ice maker, new countertops, Blanco sink, and microwave. Cooks will appreciate the incredible selection of spices, condiments, staples, cooking tools, pans, baking dishes, as well as service for 8. A gas grill is convenient.

Entertainment features WiFi, DirecTV with several hundred channels, BluRay for music and DVDs, and local telephone service. A sizeable collection of books and games await you.

Cooled by central air conditioning, and warmed by oil-fired heat, you can be assured you will always be comfortable in this year-round non-smoking home. We do have a minimum age for our guests, children are welcome, and we ask that our guests board their family pets. Welcome to Stone’s Throw!

Home located in private country-club like 300-acre private community founded in 1936 for the preservation of nature and fossils. Seasonal activities revolve around 2 mile sand beach on Chesapeake Bay, with excellent beachcombing, shark's tooth hunting, swimming and boating. Two tennis courts, pristeen outdoor swimming pool, ball fields, a community house, basketball & horseshoe court and private roads for walking and cycling make this an ideal vacation spot. Lush vegetation, a tall canopy of trees and rolling hills form the backdrop for this beach community perched on cliffs overlooking the Bay. Maryland crabs, seafood, fine museums and parks, wineries, golf and charter fishing are available within easy driving distance.

 

Owner info

About the owner: We are very fortunate to be the conservators of a waterfront home perched high on the cliffs of the Bay which our parents acquired in 1949. Our parents loved this magical place. We have extended their legacy by constantly maintaining and upgrading the comfortable log cabin. While the log cabin is original and authentic, it is warmed by oil heat, cooled by central air, and filled with modern conveniences. Since 2009 we opened our doors to guests, who have enjoyed vacations and shared their stories of relaxing experiences at the cabin, on the beach, in the forested community. We look forward to providing a happy home for your family's next vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Stone's Throw is a unique house situated on a high cliff over the Bay where one can enjoy one of the best views on the Bay and also be surrounded by the glory of nature.
