Guestbook comments from the owner
Debbie,



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.

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.

This property is equipped with anything you could possibly need for a fantastic vacation. Unbelievable kitchen and great room area with spacious deck almost keeps you from exploring the meticulously care for gardens and grounds. Serene morning kayak and paddle boarding and amazing views make us want to return to this property again - hopefully for many more wonderful family reunions to come. Thank you, Debbie, for sharing this fabulous home with us!

Outstanding for a family group - far better than expected even from the other great reviews

  • 5 of 5
Everything was as good or better than described. We were in town for a wedding and this wonderful home turned the weekend into a mini-vacation for all 15 of us. With the spaciousness of the home, beautiful decks and patio and gorgeous view, none of us wanted to leave.

Nine 63 year old women enjoyed this beautiful home for 4 nights. They flew in from all over the country for our 7th reunion in 14 years. I guess other than the fabulous views out back, the wonderful beds and bedding had to be a favorite. We had beautiful May weather, so all the outdoor decks and porches were used regularly ( no mosquitos in May!). The kitchen is large, wonderful, and well appointed, but with so many cabinets, it takes a while to find everything. The location is very convenient to downtown Annapolis, and we spent one day touring DC. Dat trips to the eastern shore or Baltimore are easy, too, but we preferred to stay around here. I always read reviews, and all the nice things said about the Yellow House were absolutely true! The house is very comfortable and well taken care of. Debbie works hard to ensure her guests are happy. In warmer weather, the kayaks and paddle boards would be great fun.

We stayed in this beautiful home for three nights on the occasion of a family reunion. Our ages ran from 76 to 11 years old and there were thirteen of us. We could not have asked for any better accommodations. The website showed a very attractive property, but our expectations were far exceeded. The house is beautifully decorated, the kitchen well equipped and the baths had luxurious robes, soaps and lotion. Located on the creek there were activities for all with kayaks, paddle boats, beautiful decks to enjoy all the wildlife and plenty of space for everyone to find a cozy location to enjoy a quiet moment or participate in game activities. The owner was extremely generous and helpful. Our weekend was perfected by our stay in this wonderful house in a great location.

Great house for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5
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!
