SKIPJACK COTTAGE - ON THE CHESAPEAKE BAY... COME RELAX

North Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Skipjack Corner Beach Cottage awaits you. Sit on the front porch with your morning coffee and watch the sun rise over the Chesapeake Bay or with your evening glass of wine and watch the boats head for home. There is no better view of the Bay.

Everything you need is within walking distance.

The beach for a romantic stroll or day of fun in the water is less than a block away, as is the fishing pier. Shopping, with something for everyone is around the corner (antiques, candy store, beach supplies, wine bar with tasting every Friday and several gift shops). And, restaurants both casual and fine dining are all within walking distance.

The Skipjack Corner Beach Cottage has an open floor plan. The living room and dining areas have unobstructed views of the Chesapeake Bay as does the master bedroom with its queen bed.

The kitchen is fully loaded with everything you need for breakfast, lunch or dinner, including a picnic basket for your trip to the beach. But, why cook when North Beach or Chesapeake Beach's finest restaurants await you.

If you are looking for a family getaway, the perfect place to start or finish your novel, or just a place to sneak away without the kids, the Skipjack Corner Beach Cottage is where you should be.

And, all of this is less than 30 minutes from Annapolis and less than 45 minutes from Washington, DC.

About The Owner

Pat and Bob Carpenter moved to Chesapeake Beach in 2002 and purchased the Skipjack Corner as a rental property in 2008.

Both very active in the community, Pat serves as Executive Director of the Arts Council of Calvert County, writes the Chesapeake Beach Town newsletter and serves as the Chair of the Chesapeake Beach Special Events Committee (so always knows what to see and do in the beaches). Pat also is a florist, so expect fresh flowers to greet you on your arrival.

Bob serves on the Chesapeake Beach Town Council and as President of the Beach Trolley Association, an organization which provides trolley transportation around the beaches during weekends in the summer.

Pat is a native of Kansas, but spent 20 years in Oregon. Bob is a native of California. They are the proud grandparents of 2 year old Declan and a new grandson coming this August.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2008

Why The Owner chose North Beach

We love everything about the 'twin beaches' of Chesapeake Beach and North Beach and this cottage was irresistable.

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5
We needed a place for our family of 5 to stay while visiting family in the North Beach area and a friend recommended this place, not only because of its perfect location, but because of its wonderful owner. Both recommendations were spot on! Bob was so accommodating and this cottage had everything we needed for the time we were here. The view of the bay is beautiful and our boys thoroughly enjoyed the boardwalk which was just steps away. North Beach is a neat little town with cute little shops. It's not far from DC and Annapolois which make for great day trips. We will definitely be back!

Waterfront! A Bit O' Heaven. Bob Has Thought of Everything!

I NEEDED a bit of simple R&R. I contacted the Skipjack, and Bob (the proprietor) gave me exactly the inclusive dates I needed. He is perhaps the easiest VRBO person I've ever dealt with. If you're looking for modern, you might wish to look elsewhere. The Skipjack is an older house -- a bit rustic -- and the Chesapeake Bay is right across the street. It has everything you could possibly need, except your clothes and toiletries. It has multiple towels, coffee, tea, sugar, creamer and more. The accommodations are wonderful and comfortable. Even just sitting on the front porch is a pleasure. I highly recommend the Skipjack. BTW, if you like mussels, you must have dinner at Neptunes: You get two pounds of mussels over pasta; personally, I get it made in butter and garlic. Yum. For breakfast or a light snack there's Sue's Sweet Shop (name?), which is absolutely a must. On Friday nights, North Beach holds a farmer's market and car cruise, which is much fun.

Perfect Location for a Bay Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Spent 3 nights at the Skipjack Cottage over Labor Day Weekend. Can't say a bad thing about it. Bob was great to work with, the cottage was in a great location - a block from everything North Beach has to offer (beach, town, restaurants, etc.). The cottage had everything we needed and then some. Bob even provided guest passes so we didn't have to pay to go to the beach and gave us a free pass to the Water Park. Enjoyed sitting out on the front porch every evening and watching the sun set. The beach in North Beach was better than we expected for the Chesapeake Bay.. We will be back!

Amazing, comfy and oh so charming!

  • 5 of 5
The Skipjack Cottage is exactly as presented. When you sit on the porch you can almost touch the water,as well as hear the waves lapping against the rocks. The town is as quaint and quiet as the cottage. The local shops are adorable and within walking distance. The beach is a short stroll from the house. I went for a girls weekend but can't wait to bring my kids and grandkids back for a visit. I am home only two days and I miss it so much. It just felt so perfect. Bob was so friendly and helpful. The Carpenter's have stocked the house to make your stay perfect. Just need to bring yourself, your personal stuff and sunscreen. I would recommend this cottage to everyone as long as there is time for me to go back. Thanks much. Cheryl

Shangri-La!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I escaped to North Beach for 9 days. The owners were amazing as was their beautiful Skipjack. We sat for hours enjoying the breathtaking views of the bay. The Skipjack was impeccably maintained and Pat added so many beautiful accents. It is within walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants. All of the towns people greet you, as you pass by. They loved to tell us their stories... we loved to hear them. I would highly recommend the Skipjack. I know you will treasure your experience! It is truly a Shangri-La.

First Time to Chesapeake Bay

  • 5 of 5
Great Location. The listing desription and photos accurately described the rental, the property was very clean and well-maintained, and Rob was very accommodating and helpfull with the area info. Lots of restuarants within a short walk or drive. Only a 5 minute walk to the beach. I would highly recommend this property and would return. I would recommend driving to Annapolis, only 30 min away or even Baltimore, about an hour dirve.
