Annapolis Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 8-12)

Wells Cottage:

This Magothy River (Mag-oh-thee) family vacation rental was built as a summer cottage by a millionaire in the thirties and retains much of its feel with large wood beam ceilings in the living and dining rooms. Wireless internet is available both inside and out.

Plenty of room for the kids in this 3200 square foot, two-level house which has been fully insulated and central air. The house has four bedrooms; master with a queen bed, another has a queen bed, one has a double bed, and the fourth has a twin with a roll-out pop-up twin trundle. The four ton central air along with the ceiling fans insure cool summer days and cozy nights. The living room sports an impressive fireplace and the downstairs playroom is complete with a (natural gas) wood burning stove, 55' flat screen with FIOS, free wifi zones and a ping pong table.

Please contact us so we can direct you to our wellscottage org website.

This Non-Smoking / No Pets home has an incredibly massive, screened-in porch facing due east overlooking the scenic water paradise of Dividing Creek. The overlooking porch and hot tub allows parents to keep a watchful eye on the kids while they are playing in the water. There is a 6 MPH speed limit for boats at all times on Dividing Creek so kids and adults can feel safe floating and goofing around out in the creek.

This is the perfect waterfront get-away. Severna Park is ideally situated less than 15 miles from BWI Airport and between Annapolis, Baltimore and Washington DC. Located off the the Magothy, Dividing Creek is one of the most beautiful on the Chesapeake Bay. Water depth is impressive at 10' at the end of the pier. A large lower level makes a perfect spot for family picnics or parties. Plenty of clean lawn chairs stored in the shed are available.

Two kayaks, inflatable rafts/tubes and a pedal boat!. Lots of different sized life vests for our guests. For boat owners, a deep-water slip is available at the pier, please call for more info.

The location and natural beauty of this land is unrivaled and was valued by Indians as well. Walk down the 18 rock steps to one of the most desirable, wide, deep water and weather protected creeks on the Chesapeake Bay. Blue Herons, Ducks, and Canadian Geese are your neighbors. Steamed crabs, corn-on-the-cob, and a cold brew is your celebration. Crab and fish right off the pier. Bring your fishing rods!

We know that you will thoroughly enjoy your stay at our cottage. This is one of the most scenic places on earth... that's why we live only two doors down!

John & Marianne Wells are both engineers (VA Tech) and currently run their own business in Columbia, MD. They have two children who are both recently married and live in the area. They have lived in Iowa, Georgia, Virginia and settled right back next to John's grandfather's summer shore cottage.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1995

We lived in Columbia, MD at the time. John was reading the Friday classified ads. He found an ad for a 4 bedroom house on Dividing creek for sale by owner but no address. He couldn't call so he made me call, within 30 seconds I figured out that the house for sale was right next to his grandfathers. It was the first time the house was advertised and we were the first callers, I guess it was fate. We moved in in July of 1995, the house needed major TLC, which we happily gave it, part of the reason we could afford the house to begin with. We were luckily enough to purchase a second run down house 50'away. John's grandfather had taught the 4 boys in the second house all he knew about fishing, crabbing etc.. So when the seller had two contracts in hand, he picked ours because of John's grandfather. The second house was in worse shape than the first. To make a long story short, we ended up getting a construction loan, and decided to fix it up to rent it. The builder did such a nice job that we moved in and decided to rent the first house. We enjoy sharing our little bit of heaven with our renters.

Wells Cottage is perfectly located. You can easily tour Annapolis, Baltimore and Washington DC from this location. The cottage is waterfront but close to shopping and restaurants. Many of our renters simply enjoy sitting in the porch swing and watching the activity in the creek. Groups of all types family, business, yoga retreats, all enjoy the peaceful and enjoyable setting of Wells Cottage.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect place which was spacious and comfortable for 10 people. The best part was the location and the view of the lake.
This place gave us the privacy but still was very close to the Market and restaurants.

Owner lives close by and stopped by to check if everything was good. So overall it was a great experience which everyone in the
group enjoyed.

The cottage was all it appeared to be in the photos, it was perfect for our family of 10 to get together for the holiday. Owner's were very helpful and have thought of everything a family with children would need for a holiday on the water.

CHERRY BLOSSOM FESTIVAL

  • 5 of 5
Six of us had a wonderful time during our stay from 2-11 April 2011. Although we spent alot of time visiting the sites of DC and Baltimore and many more, it was just nice returning to a house that was very charming and comfortable. The hot tub was great!! We will return during summer months and will stay and definitely recommend this place. Thanks John and Marrianne for allowing us to use your place.
