Hi, Thank you for visiting our post. I was blessed with this home and raising my family here. Each major holiday we had 'the family' bless us with overnight visits. Sometime with over 30 people. There fore we started to equip the home with gear to make these events more comfortable. ....Now the summer months are spent biking, camping and traveling while you enjoy the home. We love to play scrabble and exercise and have always catered to children.. I have worked (izn the marine industry )all my life (45 years)and I manage many rental units. We take care of myself physically and emotionally, we both are extremely active in sports especially (biking, swimming, running) Needless to say being out doors in any fashion is where we thrive... It does not matter if we have a blizzard or 110' heat! Living here is a pleasure.. . Because we are Christian we do a lot of volunteer work for a number of different groups including Family Life and Focus on the Family. Weekly dancing to live music (swing,country,irish country,piano) keeps us young and Glen Echo Park in DC is only 45 minutes away. Looking forward to meeting you!
Neal Barrett purchased this house in 1988
This locaction was chosen because it is minutes from downtown Annapolis,the bay bridge and EZ access to Baltimore and DC. The home is unique as you experience NO auto traffic and it offers wonderful secluded privacy, quiet and traditional waterfront charm. The deep water pier allows any size craft (sail or power) and has access to the wonderful Magothy river within minutes. This is a wonderful place to raise the family and continue entertaining the family as it grow over time. The home offers may spots to hide in peace and having 14 people for a weekend still allows privacy and comfort. We are always improving the home so hopefully you will be pleased and surprised.
This home affords wonderful privacy as there are no homes within 100 yards of the building on either side, quiet dead end road at the end of a residential community.
Swimming off the dock is just wonderful in the summer time, boating can not be any better with the luxury of the deep water of the Magothy River in front of the home. One may sail away from the pier , take a one of our small boats and paddle down the creek or participate in safe long distance swim work outs in complete safety.
Nature abounds with wonderful bird life, crabbing and bay fishing (off the pier) . Sunrises and Sunsets from the pier and beach are invite you to the vigor of the Chesapeake Bay.
This home is very kid and pet friendly with safety fences and gates where you expect them. Note Pet lovers please bring your own crate.
What a wonderful exciting week. It was nice to come back to the house and just sit by the water and BBQ in the evenings. The Extra refrigerators were a big asset for our family.
Wow, what a wonderful get away and a must come again vacation. We were treated as honored guest with a smooth transition with the owner. Our evenings were spent out on the dock enjoying the captive views of the Chesapeake Bay. Our days were spent exploring the wonderful historic area. We just didn't have enough time to do it all. Mr. Barrett was remarkably helpful and knowledgeable of the sights. I highly recommend this home to rent.
I couldn't ask for a better location. Plenty of room, great views, place looked great. Owner was so helpful, going again next year.
Great property.(We rented for a month) minor cons:Stove top is difficult to use. small ants on one kitchen wall, owner corrected promptly; Low water pressure unless tenant fiddles with water; no crabs (to speak of) 30 traps, maybe 50 crabs all month.
Otherwise the property was as advertised, great for pets with enclosed grounds. Nice pool and hot tub,
great house with large bedrooms, ample bathrooms, nice sun porches and bedroom patio's, located 20 minutes between several shopping centers, 1/2 hour to 6 flags America,
We enjoyed our stay very much. The view was wonderful and the fenced in yard was great for our dogs. The house was very nice and comfortable. The kitchen could use a facelift; everything was WELL used. We had to wait a month and a half for our deposit to be returned to us.
I would love to give this house a good review. The space is fantastic
as is the location. We planned a vacation for four families with
small children and loved the idea of a house with a pool, a small
beach, a lawn and playground, and adequate indoor space for all of our
families to be comfortable.
Unfortunately, we found bedbugs in the house after being assured
repeatedly that there was no such problem. After reading a negative
review posted at the beginning of August (just weeks before our rental
was scheduled to begin) we contacted Neal to find out about the bedbug
situation as well as the other issues raised in that review. We told
him that we simply could not bring our four families and eight small
children into a house with a bedbug infestation. He assured us that
all of the complaints raised by the previous reviewer were invalid. He
also told us that he had had the house thoroughly treated and
inspected and that no bedbugs had been found. We relied on those
assurances and kept our reservation.
After our first night in the house, we found multiple bed bugs on the
trundle bed in the bedroom above the garage (and the two boys who slept in that bed had multiple bites from those bugs). When we told Neal that
we had to vacate and expected a full refund, he continued to state
that we were mistaken and bedbugs were not a problem. Once we showed
him clear evidence of live bedbugs in the house, he agreed to refund
our money. It took two months of regular emails to finally
secure the full refund. Neal's written response to the previous poor
review, which states clearly that no bedbugs were ever found in the
house, was posted to the Homeaway website after we vacated the house
and after he had knowledge of the live bedbugs. My group simply can't
recommend this house.
Stayed in the house 27 September to 5 October. The home was as described in the advertising. The layour and amenities were as described. Location is 10-15 minutes away from Annapolis. I found it to have a nice balance between being away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but not so far away so as to enable enjoyment of a nice evening in town. I saw the cleaning crew finishing up the cleaning and they appeared to be very thorough and conscientious. I have no complaints regarding the cleanliness of the place. The house is not a new place, and has some items that need to be gone over with the owner, but Neal was forthcoming with all the details and I was quite satisfied in that regard. I liked the modern washer and dryer which I used. Kitchen was well appointed. I used mostly the big toaster oven and the microwave and these items work fine. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to a relative or friend. Annapolis was close enough and nice restaurants are abundant there. Thanks to Neal for providing a great place to stay during my stay in the area. Will gladly return.
