OSPREY'S NEST, SPACIOUS, PEACEFUL, BAY VIEWS, SUNRISES, RELAXING

St. Leonard House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

Wake up to beautiful Sunrises and a spectacular bay view from your own magnificent 800 sq.ft. Master Bedroom Suite with New King pillowtop therapedic bed, spa tub and steam shower. 2nd Bedroom, Queen bed with sliding glass doors to a large deck overlooking the bay. 3rd Bedroom, 2 twin beds with quiet Street views. 4th Bedroom, Queen bed, ground floor with 3rd bath adjacent to great room and kitchen, great for elderly and handicapped. Additional room, game room with pullout sofa, stereo, TV, Wii Sports and game table. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining...open to the great room , breakfast nook and main deck with 4 different eating areas, well equipped for cooking and has a JennAir gas range. Lush native vegetation provides a private setting for viewing Osprey, Bald Eagles, flocks of geese as they soar at eye level from the decks providing an impressive show 80 feet above the bay. The beach community is quiet, friendly and walkable with narrow streets and private beaches.

Community activities: The community of Long Beach has 3 beautiful sandy beaches for use by the residents and renters only. They have very gradual slopes and the waves are small compared to the ocean, making it very safe for children to swim, play and kayak.

We also have a very picturesque boat harbor in the middle of our community called Flag Harbor Yacht Haven with about 160 slips. You may bring your own boat and have it launched for the week , possibly rent a transient slip during your stay. You may get lucky and catch a fishing charter or just fish from the beach or jetty.

We also have a county owned nature park with beaches and trails adjacent to our community to the south called Flag Ponds Nature Park.

Or just sit back on the deck and watch ocean going ships navigate the bay to Baltimore or star gaze in this quiet, peaceful community by the bay.!

Spacious yet charming-all we hoped for and more

We selected this home for our 28th family reunion and were not at all disappointed – everything promised in the posting was there (and more), well maintained, and clean. I can’t imagine what I would have added to make our weekend more comfortable and accommodating – everything we could possibly need or want was right there. The layout of the home and deck is perfect for sitting in groups to talk or play games, or you can spread out and have some solitude to read or just relax. I loved that I could be with my family yet not feel like we were on top of each other all weekend. The kitchen is well equipped and the dining room table is big enough to accommodate seating for a large family.

Our family ranged in age from 27 to 90 and this home suited everyone. The wireless internet access was a must for the 27 year old, the extensive cable channel listings were a must for the sports fans who needed to see the baseball playoffs, hockey and football, and my 90 year old mother actually bowled with the Wii. A short stroll down the street would take you to the beach area and I enjoyed jogging through the quiet neighborhood and surrounding area.

There are restaurants and grocery stores just a short drive away. The owner was attentive, professional yet friendly, and accessible.

I highly recommend this property if you want to feel confident that your vacation will be nothing less than wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. It's always nice to hear that our house, that we designed and built for our family in 2005, is being enjoyed by other families. We out-grew our home rather quickly when our daughters got married and moved out. We decided to move into a small cottage down the street and make our home into a vacation rental, so that other families can get together and enjoy our little beach community that we have been fortunate to call home since 1990.
We have been in the business for 10 years and still enjoy meeting people from all over the country. Barby puts alot of energy into decorating the interior and exterior of the home...especially during the holidays! She is a Christmas Nut...we plan on putting pictures on the site showing the house during the holidays.
We look forward providing you with a memorable getaway and will gladly share our local knowledge of the Chesapeake Bay area with you during your stay.
Thanks...Jeff and Barby

We enjoyed a very relaxing and truly wonderful Thanksgiving stay and have nothing but good things to say about the property. It is lovely, well cared for, clean, comfortable and then... there's that view. Words can't express how breathtaking the wide expanse of the bay is each morning. Even in bad weather it was a fantastic sight and possibly the best "back yard" view we've ever seen! The owner and property manager were great to work with and we recommend the property highly.

We returned to this home for our family reunion. Once again, it everything as described in the posting and more – we could not have been more satisfied with the time we spent in this fabulous home. We love that the open concept kitchen / dining room / living room is spacious yet you don’t feel disconnected from people either. It’s so easy to feel completely at peace reading in the living room with others are cooking or playing games at the dining room table. Our family is very diverse in terms of interests and it’s typically difficult to accommodate everyone but this home has it all – cable, wireless internet, game room, large outdoor deck with plenty of comfortable furniture, picnic table in the back yard and the fully equipped kitchen – there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Situated in a quiet neighborhood, you’ll have a gorgeous view of the water off either deck (there is a main deck and an upper level). You can easily walk to the beach and there are antique shops, a convenience store, beer/wine, etc. close by.

Let me not forget to mention the master bedroom suite – it’s huge and has a spa tub and large walk-in shower. It’s extremely well appointed and I’m told the king bed was noticeably comfortable. We treated our daughter, son-in-law and 1 year old daughter to that room (it was our turn to select the room we wanted first so we gave it to them) where they set up a pack and play for our granddaughter. Talk about spoiled – they kept telling us how pampered and spoiled they felt.

The owner was helpful and is very accessible if there are questions. I highly recommend this property – you won’t be disappointed. We plan to return and only wish our family reunion was more than once a year so we could come back more often.

Beautiful Vacation Home

  • Submitted: Sep 4, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
This was a beautiful, extremely comfortable house to stay in. Our group's ages ranged from 17 to 87 and everyone's needs were met. Things in the area we liked best: renting kayaks from Patuxent Adventure Center; hiking with our dogs at Flag Pond State Park; visiting Ann Marie Sculpture Garden on Solomons Island. Calvert Marine Museum was great too. Much Thanks to Jeff and Barby for being so gracious and helpful throughout our stay. And by the way, the two most interesting places we had dinner were CD's Cafe (Solomons) and Saphron (Prince Frederick)

The home is wonderful for a reunion of old friends. The rooms are spacious and there are many places to gather and catch up on old times! My sorority sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the house. Just one thought - the picture that shows that the house is steps from the beach is misleading. The beach is a short walk - about three blocks. The views from the back of the house are awe inspiring.
