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..
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!
It is with sincere appreciation that our family wishes to thank you for the use of your wonderful home. This retreat (and your home) was beyond expectations, allowing our family to grow closer and to make sweet memories that we will cherish always. Thank you for this respite, this haven and this peace. We are truly grateful and would recommend this lovely home to anyone and everyone looking for an amazing, relaxing and rejuvenating experience!
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!
