My husband and I are frequent travelers and this is by far one of the most relaxing places we've ever stayed. Our party consisted of my husband and myself, a baby (celebrating a 1st birthday!!) and 2 grandparents. The Lilac Cottage was absolutely adorable! Its a 3 bedroom 2.5 bath that was very clean, spacious, well maintained, and tastefully decorated. The cottage was pretty much equipped with everything we needed for the week (towels, fridge, toaster, pots, pans, silverware, coffee maker, microwave, cups) and everything was in good working condition. We rented a van for the week as grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping are quite a distance from the cottage. Our first night in town we stopped at Solomons Grocery store and picked up all our essentials for breakfast and lunch and we usually ate dinner out in the town. Despite being quite a distance from the rest of town, the location of the cottage was perfect as it was far away from noise and just yards from the beach. We spent just about every morning walking the short distance to the private beach area to relax and snorkel which was awesome as opposed to having to drive to a beach. Beach chairs, umbrella, and towels were provided which were wonderful. We only got to meet Gladys (the owner of the property) briefly since she was leaving on her family vacation when we arrived but she was very nice and always responded to emails and questions very promptly. The housekeeper and groundskeeper for the property were on site during our stay and were both so friendly and always helpful when we had questions. All in all our vacation was everything we were hoping for and so much more. Its hard to capture the lovely essence of this place in photos but I would recommend this place to anyone and cant wait to return again!!!
