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.

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.

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.

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,

Nice Weekend

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.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Pet-friendly, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: The kitchen is completely new this past summer. Including granite counter tops, cabinets and most appliances. How one could state that it needs a facelift is subjective. The only older item left in the kitchen is a 4-burner counter top stove that works just fine. The phrase "everything was WELL used." is very misleading. Our security deposit Return policy is clear and on the last page of the lease agreement where one signs. The wait allows us sufficient time for the following: to discover items that we may have declared LOST to be rediscovered; to discover damage from pets that even the owners may not be aware of.... to collect the utility bills from the previous month to insure there was NO Excessiver or Careless use of Fuel or electric and finally to compare our pre rental photos and inventory sheets to the "after the fact list” and photos which are provided by our maids. There is a lot of gear both inside and outside the home and keeping track of it is a challenge. Believe me our attention to details has saved a lot of hassle to our guests and every ones pocket book... The 45 day return time should NOT be a surprise... however it is just easily overlooked by some guests. Should the guest receive a "clean report card" we extend to them a FREE NIGHT which is our expression of gratitude for their business.

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.
