Welcome to our 4 bedroom / 2 bath, Cobb Island, Maryland Waterfront Vacation Home, one hour from Washington D.C. –

Cobb Island – a magical place and the perfect spot to Relax and unwind for your next vacation enjoying water oriented activities and fabulous river views.

Relaxing is the keyword our guests use to tell us about their vacations. Cobb Island is the place where special memories are made-

Waking up in the morning to the sun rising over the river with spectacular colors of the sky.

Spending countless hours swimming from the beach and fishing or crabbing off the pier.

Kayaking around Cobb Island or exploring many local inlets in one of our provided kayaks.

Collecting beach glass from our private beach and make decorations.

Or just sitting on the deck over the water or the screened porch and enjoying a crab feast or painting of shells by the children.

We provide kayaks, bicycles, fishing poles and crab traps for your use. If you have never kayaked before, plan on it this summer.

Bring your own boat or jet ski and keep it on our lifts or rent a boat at the local marina. It's only 3 miles to the highly rated Swan Point Golf course.

Our guests have made so many wonderful comments to us about their vacation at our home, but the common theme that everyone talks about is that their vacation was good for their soul. It was a special place that they were able to totally relax, enjoy family/friends and nature at its best. It is with great pride that I invite you to stay at our special, magical home.

Thinking about what to do on a rainy day? You are one hour from the Washington, D.C. beltway or

Retired in 2005 and have been adventuring around the world, but love to come back to Cobb Island. My passion is fishing in the Potomac River, either from our dock or trolling for trophy sized Rock Fish in a tournament

Ed Mullan purchased this house in 1999

We owned a house in Bethany Beach for many years but got tired of the commute and traffic going to the ocean. We looked around the Chesapeake watershed to find something with an easy commute to Washington, DC... this is it!!

"My entire family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at this beautiful waterfront house which is a hard feat to accomplish simply because we have 3 generations of children, all of course with different interests and expectations. Our youngest daughter is a rising 5th grader, our son will be graduating H.S. and our oldest daughter will be graduating from Grad School this year.

The house was was very clean, well decorated, spacious and most importantly lived up to the owners billing of having a true gourmet kitchen which just delighted my wife as she loves to cook.

The views were spectacular, the fishing and crabbing was excellent, the local restaraunt food was fantastic, the neighbors very friendly, the kayaking a lot fun and the private sandy beach was simply icing on the cake.

We also took a ride up to Baltimore for a day and saw the Red Sox play the Orioles and visited some sights in D.C. as they are not that far away.

I highly recommend this rental property to anyone seeking a truly enjoyable relaxing vacation. We enjoyed it so much that we plan on coming back again next year!

What we especially liked about your Cobb Island house was: being on the water, fishing, kayaking, biking, catching lightning bugs watching the fireworks on our 1st evening on the porch. If we were not in the water swimming, picking up sea glass, sea shells,fishing or trying to catch a crab we were on the porch. Star gazing at night was also a bonus! We so enjoyed your home! Ernie and Marty were very friendly and shared zucchini from their garden. The kayaks were wonderful to have and be able to get on the water. Good view of the osprey nest in the pine tree and different posts along the waterway. Our daughter brought her bike with a tag along for our grand-daughter. We had some wonderful bike rides. My legs today are a little sore. Your bikes were another wonderful addition. We look forward to our future visit with our children and grand-children. The one thing we did not like was - Having to leave!!!

Every year, my mother takes us all on vacation, my brother, sister, and I and our families. Since my father passed away, these times together have become more important to all of us. Each year we look forward to the trip, but always hope that we will find "the vacation spot". The place that makes us all happy, adults and kids alike. I think we found that place in your house. After a tumoltuous year and a half long divorce, the papers were finally signed on the 18th. So the timing was perfect for my part of the family. Every thing about the house was perfect. It was just the right amount of time away, the right amount of house, and the right amount of fun. We spent our days on the river swimming and Kayaking and our evenings watching the river and the stars. The kids enjoyed hanging out in the living room and the adults relaxed in the spacious kitchen and caught up. There was no stress of making sure we saw everything, because everything to see was right in the backyard. We were all able to kick back and relax, just like you should on vacation. The house was beautiful and far exceded our expectations. We've done this enough to know that pictures don't always tell the truth. But yours were exact. Thank you so very much for sharing your home with us to enjoy. I am hoping we will be back again.

The feeling of walking into our own place was fantastic. It was homey, cozy, clean and well equipped! I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so I especially loved the well equipped kitchen. The layout and furnishings were perfect for our family! We spend a lot of our time outdoors and on the water, so the dock and water access was perfect for our family!
We enjoyed our vaction and plan to come back, as well as would recommend this place to friends and family!

My brothers and I planned a surprise for my Mom's 80th birthday weekend. It was to take her back to Cobb Island where she summered growing up. The weekend was a huge success and much of that was attributed to this beautifuk house we were fortunate enough to find.
The house itself is charming, clean and homey. sleeping facilities were ample and the 6 of us never felt on top of one another.
the real traet though, and where everyone spent the majority of the time, was the outside areas. The deck, picnic table and dock were so relaxing and beautiful.
the amenities were also appreciated. I myself became a kayak freak while we were there and have bought my own since returning home to Tampa.
we hope to return soon.

thanks for everything.
