1930s style cottage at water's edge, a leisurely sail up the scenic Magothy River just far enough off the bay to be in calm protected water. We are located on a secluded point in a small bay of the river behind a tall iron gate and a high native stone wall. The compound has over 900 ft on the river and has an interesting history. The cottage has just been completely renovated, new everything, but retains its quaint charm. Another slightly smaller 2br/1bth cottage is also available here at the same estate.
Youll have your own private deep-water pier, just 15 feet from your riverfront porch, with 30 amp marine electric service and water. We have kayaks, canoes, dingys and small sailboats. If you're a good sailor maybe you can make it.about a mile down river to a typical waterfront crabshack; dock up and enjoy our famous Maryland bluecrabs. Or join us (no charge) on our 41 ketch for a sail on the river or the bay.
Our home is here in the same compound, but secluded and out of your way. We're always available if you need anything. We make every effort to see you are comfortable and have a great vacation.
By car, Annapolis, with its Naval Academy, museums, historic waterfront, shops, and world-class restaurants is just 10-15 minutes away. BWI Airport is 20 minutes on fast expressway, Baltimore historic waterfront and major league sports are 20 minutes, and Washington, D.C. Capitol Hill is under an hour.
We hope to see you!
The cottage was exactly as it appeared or even better. Cozy, bright, comfortable, in a gorgeous setting, the river outside reflecting Christmas lights in houses across the way . . . Chuck and his family were wonderful, keeping us well stocked in firewood and cheer; he and his wife even had a Christmas tree ready for us to decorate and light. And there are boats--canoes, kayaks (but stay away from that maddening dinghy). I'd planned to leave after ten days but couldn't resist, so stayed four more. It was as wonderful for quiet writing as for entertaining, and its accessibility made it perfect for my wheelchair-bound mother to come for dinners. I'd very happily stay again.
My husband was joining us from overseas for Christmas, and we had a lovely getaway here. We asked only for lots of wood to keep the roaring fire going, and Chuck delivered as promised. Our little son enjoyed the very friendly dog and feeding the ducks, as well as setting up his train tracks next to our little Christmas tree on the front porch. We were very cozy and happy here, and enjoyed the proximity to Whole Foods etc. for provisions.
Our family had a wonderful vacation at Birdhaven! Our son attended the Naval Academy LAX camp for two weeks and we could not have found a more perfect quant cottage "estate" to stay at! We enjoyed sailing, canoeing, swimming and many peaceful evenings right on the water! Our 9 year old son especially enjoyed sailing on the boats just steps away from our cottage.
Chuck Beck, the owner of the estate shared some great history about the place and was always willing to go the extra miles to make us feel at home. Thank you!
My husband John and I booked this beautiful cottage for a week. The property was amazing - Chuck treated us spectacularly. We used the beautiful fireplace all week as it definitely cooled down - and used the Canoe and Pontoon Boat to check out the waterway right in front of the property.
You can use this is a launching pad to Annapolis, Washington, Mt Vernon - or anywhere - it was always nice to come home to.
Thank you Chuck - if we're back in your area we'll call you again for sure.
When my husband, myself and our three sons: 19, 17 & 12 arrived early Saturday morning to start our vacation at this location. As soon as we pulled into the driveway we were "HOME"!
All 5 of us listed this vacation as one of our favorite location!
Thanks to amazing guests at the other two rented homes, we had ourselves one for the books!
We highly recommend all three homes Chuck and his wife have to offer, oh and I must not forget Bob from Dallas, they were extremely welcoming!!
We rented the middle cottage for 4 weeks- and ended up staying 4 more... we could not leave.!!! The homes//cottages are so pleasant and homey- and chuck and ivelese make you a part of their family. The views on the river are awesome-sunrise-sunset0 close to baltimore and annapolis. -- the kayaks are great and the swimming hole. I love the Point restaurant! There are bikes to use- and helmets- and anything you an desire... I suggest you go -as you will get a slice of heaven!
