Huge 1930s stone villa, over 6000 sq ft on a point overlooking the river; short.sail up the scenic Magothy River to the estate, just far enough off the bay to be in calm protected water. We are located on a secluded point on a big bend in the river behind a tall iron gate and a high native stone wall. The compound has close to 1000 ft frontage and an iteresting history. The house is original 1930s stone architecture but the baths and kitchen have been renovated respecting the original style and keeping its quaint charm.
You can explore the river and it's miles of creeks and bays with our small boats. A deep water pier with 30 amp marine electric service and municipal water is available for your use if you have or rent your own large boat. A pontoon boat is available too. It's a 15 min cruise down to a typical waterfront crabshack; dock up and enjoy our famous Maryland bluecrabs and socialize with our river people. You can dock your boat here if you like. 30 amp electric and municipal water on dock.
We have canoes, kayaks, a Club 420 14' sailboat; Hobie 17' monohull sailboat. We make every effort to see you are comfortable and have a great vacation.
The kitchen is enormous and has a commercial gas range and eat in kitchen seating 8.; the dining room seats 12. Outdoors overlooking the river is a fun BBQ area with a wide angle view of the river. There are both gas and wood burning grills, a wood fired smoker and propane cookers for crab steaming or fish frying. There is a large library available for the serious reader and a Steinway grand piano for the musicians.
For larger groups we also have two other cottages here at the same estate, (see listing # 58142), and you can take the whole compound for corporate team building or a very large family reunion. .
By car, Annapolis and the 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!
