We live on a small farm in the beautiful Southern Pennsylvania countryside - but we absolutely LOVE to get away to this fabulous spot on the planet! Even early on New Years morning, we don't want to miss the Tundra Swans.The dogs won't be left behind!

Harbor Cottages, LLC, attn: Katherine Nelson purchased this cottage in 2005

We took several day trips to this incredible community and nearby state parks, and fell in love with this quiet and beautiful beach only an hour from Washington DC. We have also succumbed to Fossil Hunting Mania.

There are many rainy day activities in this historic area - although many vacationers tell me they never left the cottage and beach.

PERFECT LOCATION FOR A FAMILY GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We all had a lovely time. The cottage is in the perfect location. Just one and a half hours from D.C. but just minutes to the beach. My kids loved it. We saw Ospreys fishing and a bald Eagle and the kids found lots of interesting fossils. We will be definitely be back to recharge the batteries.

BREATHTAKING BEAUTY! PEACEFUL SERENITY!

  • 4 of 5
This home is in the perfect location. Peace and serenity abound. It's a 2 second (perhaps 2 min), walk to over a 4 mile long beach where you can find sharks teeth, shells, and bald eagles and Osprey flying overhead, The house has 2 full baths, 2 bedroom, and a wide open living space. I must confess I spent the majority of my time outside..... The owner is more than gracious and I look forward to additional stays here. If you're looking for a place that's close to DC in the day, but where you can unwind at night... look no further. May YOU also, find the peace and serenity I did here! Have a beautiful day and stay!

BEAUTIFUL AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
We wanted a fun but relaxing vacation and that is what we got. Katherine's cottage was wonderful. Nice and clean and very comfortable. I quickly felt right at home. The weather was beautiful but HOT. Thank goodness for the central air!(our dog thanks you too) We had such a good time going to Calvert Cliff's. The kids and the dog loved the beach. St. Leonard's is a cute little town. We loved eating dinner out at Solomon's Island( We loved the Dry Dock Rest. ) We were also able to travel to Wahington DC, six flags, and Ft. Mc Henry since our location was so central. Those sea nettles need to go!!! Thanks again for the great rental Katherine!!!

RELAXING WEEK ON THE CHESAPEAKE

  • 4 of 5
It was wonderful to get away with the family and just relax! We had everything we needed at the cottage, and there was SO much to see all around the area. The sea nettles (jellyfish) were pesky because the water was so warm, so we didn't get to swim. However, we really enjoyed making s'mores on the beach with the kids a few nights, ate dinner out on the deck each night, and just enjoyed being together. We found the cottage to be clean, although it needs a little upkeep. Overall, I would definitely recommend this rental to our friends and family!

A SERENE REFUGE FROM OTHERWISE BUSY LIVES!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was perfect! It had all the comforts of home, without the clutter. We had visitors who also exclaimed at the ease, comfort, and simplicity of the cottage and the town of St. Leonard's.

My husband and I walked to the beach 3 times a day, first thing in the morning after our coffee on the porch while enjoying the view of the marina, then sometime during the day and after dinner. We were so much at peace we never turned on the TV!

Stores for all our necessities were 5 miles away in Prince Frederick, and, with WiFi at the cottage we didn't need to run out for the paper at the local facilities, including gas, a mile away at the "round-about".

We are crab, fresh seafood and homegrown vegetable lovers, and there were several local farmers stands and markets to choose from.

The owner of the cottage, Katherine, and her local area overseers of the property were responsive to our questions and made sure our stay was comfortable. The area residents were friendly and low-key. This is the perfect undiscovered little hide away from a hectic and demanding life.

We will be back.
