RESTORED 3 BR WATERFRONT VICTORIAN HOME ON THE POTOMAC RIVER

Colonial Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom/2 Bath Home sleeps 7 in Beds comfortably With River Views

You'll fall in love with 'The River Moon Cottage' situated on the shores of the Potomac River just as I did some 30 years ago when I bought the home. The relaxing feel of the home and furnishings will allow you to sink into over-stuffed sofas and unbelievably cozy, soft beds. It's a complete unwinding from the fast-paced world and you will feel it the minute you step into the cottage. The wrap-around porches and sunroom with a 6-mile view to Southern Maryland will help you relax and enjoy your favorite foods and beverages. Forget the tanning salons! Bring your lounge chairs and get a real tan out in the spacious yard with that gentle breeze off the river. After relaxing, you may want to challenge the kids to a round of basketball or 'horse' on our cement court. Ball provided or bring your own. The restored home is big enough so everybody can spread out and have their own space. Turn your busy cell phones and glaring lap tops off and drift into quiet. After staying here, you won't want to go home. Let me provide you with a cozy, relaxing home-away-from-home to spend your vacation here and really unwind. You won't regret it!

  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • pets considered

About Barbara Darby

After living in College Park, Md for 4 years, my husband and I were looking for an new adventure away from the city. We found out about Colonial Beach from a friend and never looked back. We bought the house, ran a transportation business, raised a son, owned a party store with my sister, husband retired, divorced, and got my real estate license. That all took 30 years and here I am. I still love my riverside home and have had many holidays and family come to enjoy it. I miss that. Now I want to share my 'little piece of Heaven' with you. I know you will appreciate it as much as I have all these years.

Barbara Darby purchased this cottage in 1979

What makes this cottage unique

Peaceful, beautiful scenic views, slow-paced life.

Very unsatisfied

  • 1 of 5
This property advertised that it was fenced in, but upon arrival we discovered that an entire section of the fence was missing. This posed a problem because we could not let our dog run around. The house was tidy, but it really needs to be fumigated. There were little spiders crawling around all over the place. We were careful not to leave any of our luggage on the floor.

Lastly, customer service was terrible. A month after our stay I was told by the owner, Barbara, that my security deposit was spent "to pay some bills." I still have not gotten my deposit back.

Peaceful Get-Away

  • 4 of 5
The home has an amazing view of the bay that brought our guest of honor to tears, literally. The home is older yet well maintained and comfortably accomodated all of our guests. With perfect access to the more public and the less populated beachfront, we were ideally placed. The wrap around deck provides a great place and view for any meal. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and look forward to returning soon.

Thank you for a great experience.

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect. Everything we needed was provided, the house was well equipped, the beds were comfortable, and we loved the fenced yard and wrap around front porch. The house was exactly as advertised and was clean and maintained. and the view from the front porch of the bay was so pretty. We will definitely stay again and hope to go back this summer for a weekend.

Labor Day Weekend

  • 4 of 5
The cottage was very roomy and the beds very comfortable. There were 10 of us and everyone had plenty of room. The yard was fenced which were great for the kids to play in and the view of the water as beautiful. I love Colonial Beach and would stay in the cottage again. Thank you Barbara.
