Home Profile:

I have lived on this property for 23 years. This home along with its beautiful perennial gardens,and creek are magical, and should be shared. I now devote all my time and attention to this lovely home. One of my passions is as a pastry chef, no longer full time, but still bake ,when not preparing for house guests.

I enjoy the whole process of preparing for the arrival of a new family, ensuring that the home exceeds all expectations.

Debbie Buchanan purchased this cottage in 1991

There are a thousand tributaries to the Cheasapeake Bay, this one little slice of heaven was little known, but has gained some notoriety several years back, when LL Bean chose it as one of its only 2 spots for their popular Discovery kayak learning trips. Local Annapolis Author in his book ' Open Spaces, Sacred Places' features our exact location on page 23. Across the creek is acreage , expressly left as a nature preserve. The only thing you will see , as you wiling away the hours , are very grateful critters, and some boaters.

The expansive windows in every room, face east, so you enjoy the sunrise as well as the beauty of the moon on the creek , from the master suite as well as other perfect spots. One of the greatest attributes of this property is its beauty and peaceful, quiet surroundngs.

Great house for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 17, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
We stayed at Debbie's Yellow House for a week-long family reunion just before Thanksgiving. The house was stunning -- the pictures give a good sense of how beautiful the property is. Even though we had cold rainy weather, the house made a great home base for hot tea by the fireplace while playing cards.

The *huge* kitchen was the heart of the house for our trip. We did a lot of cooking ourselves, and we had lots of space to spread out and have everyone lend a hand. Debbie was very helpful in making sure we found all the kitchen tools we needed.

Lots of room in the circular driveway for the 3 cars we came in. The back yard is quite nice ... a bit steeply banked down to the water, but very nicely gardened. Must be great in the summertime when everything is green! The house backs onto one of the many large creeks feeding the Chesapeake, and makes for stunning sunrises.

All in all, a great location for a large family get-together!

Thanksgiving at the big bright house!

We thoroughly enjoyed our family Thanksgiving at the big bright house! We needed a last-minute place to meet and enjoy Thanksgiving with our extended family…and boy did we! Deb could not have been more accommodating by helping us pull everything together. She made an amazing Thanksgiving meal for us, as we needed to arrive in the late afternoon on Thanksgiving day. This home is more than a rental and reminded us of a "bed & breakfast" with all the thoughtful amenities. We highly recommend this property!

We had a terrific family reunion at Debbie's amazing home. We had 12 adults and two children and
NO ONE WANTED TO LEAVE! Debbie's referrals for restaurants and even for pizza were first rate. From the clean and comfortable bedrooms to the wonderful open kitchen everything made for a unforgettable weekend. Debbie even surprised us with her famous blueberry muffins, Yum! We can say without hesitation, run, don't walk to make the "beautiful yellow house" your destination if you are planning a gathering for any occasion!

The Porch We'll Never Forget!

We stayed in this absolutely wonderful home for two weeks. The photos in the listing were accurate, but we thought this home was even more beautiful than the pictures. And I believe we spent every morning and evening on the porch overlooking the creek! We looked out over that beautiful green lawn and fabulous hydrangeas that were everywhere to the peaceful creek and woods beyond! It was just the kind of relaxing vacation we needed.

We had several dinner parties while we were there and everybody enjoyed the porch and the lovely kitchen and adjoining family room. We had everything we needed to prepare meals and serve them. The owner gave us a wonderful tip on a good caterer for one of the dinners and the meal was exceptional! Also, the owner was so helpful decorating for the party! She went way beyond what any renter would expect!

We had family members and friends ages 4 to 61 staying in the house and everyone loved it. We used the kayaks, crabbed off the deck, watched the beautiful birds. Also, it's a very short distance to downtown Annapolis where you can shop, find great restaurants, tour the historical buildings. We even saw a performance of a top 10 contestant for American Idol. It was a fabulous trip. And this home is just such a gem. We can't wait to stay there again! Highly recommend it!

I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for the wonderful weekend all of us had. Except for the "Weather", it was a beautiful weekend get-away even if we just sat around and reminisced about old times in front of the fire. The house was perfect; exactly like the photos online and everything was spectacular. Many thanks from "all of us"... You have a Beautiful Home!!!!
