Keywords: Summer in Annapolis ! We are 5 minutes from historic Annapolis,directly on beautiful black walnut creek , perfect for quiet relaxation, and family reunions, and so much more.
I have lived on this property for 26 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.
The house was ideal and impressed so many people. I think I must have given more than a dozen tours of all the rooms and suites in the house and everyone was in awe. Thanks again for the great house.
We are 10 active cousins all over 65, some well over, from the East Coast -FL to NY. Since the late 80's we have been renting a house for a week every other year in different places through out this country.... All week everyone kept saying they "loved this home". Debbie was an absolute joy to work with... I asked in passing if there were any poker chips among the games and puzzles... next day Poker Chips as well as THE BEST hot-out-of-the-oven muffins arrived... which were devoured instantly... and the poker chips used every night.
Five Stars in every way. Debbie has created an enviorment of luxurious comfort and livability...from the exquisite decorating to the amazingly comfortable beds, (robes and slippers included) she has not left out any Five Star Hotel amemities.
As a professional Baker the kitchen is equipped with restaurant quality everything. There is plenty of room for everyone to make their own breakfast, our group made use of all THREE coffee makers...
ON THE Water views and a "Better Homes and Garden" Garden skilfully cared for is all part of the package... beautiful.
Location is perfect, we took advantage of the easy metro access to DC, drivable Baltimore and the treasures of Annnapolis minutes away, returning to our comfortable hidaway...
We highly recommend this property, Debbie and Gepetto who are always improving on the experience and are only a phone call away...
It doesn't get any better than this..
This past weekend it was my daughter's turn to be the BRIDE! We were so very lucky to find this spacious, immaculate house, conveniently located just 3 miles from her Annapolis Wedding Venue. The description of the property reads: Gorgeous Southern Colonial, but it should say : "SOUTHERN LIVING" Colonial , as it is straight out of the pages of the magazine .
The house and grounds far exceeded the Bride's expectations as a backdrop for her Wedding Party "First Look" pictures . She and her TEN Bride's Maids had their hair styled and makeup applied, while I stayed busy in the GIANT kitchen assembling the Wedding Cake. Such a tall cake is a very TALL order in a rental kitchen , but we had acres of space. There are infact , THREE kitchens in this house , with three refrigerators and an extremely large freezer, we easily prepared family dinners and Brunch for the Bride's Maids and Groom's Men .
We all needed a good night's sleep before and after the BIG Day. This beautiful, peaceful, COMFORTABLE, house did not dissapoint ! . . . We say : Thank YOU Debbie !
We rented this wonderful house for a family wedding we were attending in Annapolis. We had 8 adults and 2 children in our party. The house was plenty big for all of us with room to spare. The bedrooms are all well appointed and have very comfortable beds and fine linens. The master was perfect for us because it has an extra full bed across the room so our child could be in the same room. Everything written in the description of this house was accurate and then some. The pictures just cannot capture all the work the owner has done to make this house so special. It is gorgeous inside and out - but casual enough to make you feel comfortable. No matter where you stand inside or out - the views are amazing...not just in the landscape and looking out over the water - but in the careful placing of beautiful art and design. Debbie is a gracious host and truly cares about this property. Her love shows in every nook and cranny of the home. Thank you for sharing it with us.!
Each year, my family (now ranging in age from 7 months to 88 years) meets somewhere in the US to celebrate Thanksgiving. This year's choice was Debbie's beautiful yellow house in Annapolis. It not only met, but exceeded, our expectations. We had everything we needed for the baby, the teenagers and the adults and wished we could have stayed even longer. Cooking in the well-equipped and gorgeous kitchen was a joy and game night at the big table was a nightly occurrence. Many thanks to Debbie for her assistance and hospitality!
It is a trip we shall treasure forever.
My now husband and I were getting married in North Beach, MD and looking for a place big enough to house our immediate families before the big day. We also wanted a big enough outdoor space to host an intimate rehearsal dinner. Debbie's place was PERFECT. Actually, beyond that. The house indoors is just as beautiful and well put together as the outside. But the outside.......the view from all 3 levels is just stunning. And more importantly. Debbie the owner was so incredibly kind and accommodating. She even coordinated a trip for my bridesmaids and myself to visit this wonderful local historic museum....one of my favorite parts. All in all, we plan to go back for sure. Definitely worth the money and experience!!!
This is such a beautiful home! Our group had a wonderful times and the owner was just the friendliest most accommodating person to work with! I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for gorgeous home with amenities galore!
