Harbor Cottage at the Chesapeake Bay Vacation Rental

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bath; sleeps up to 6

Enjoy the peace and quiet at Flag Harbor, only 1 hour from Washington, DC, or historic Annapolis. Our cottage is a 3 minute stroll along the harbor to the large, private community beach where you can enjoy fishing, kayaking, walking, swimming, and hunting for fossils from the Miocene found on the beach there.

There are many local activities for a rainy day: museums, nature center, antiques mall, candy shop, farm stand (which also has fresh local-caught fish and crab), and many other shops and restaurants in nearby Solomons.

The cottage has two bedrooms, each with a queensize bed. The "open plan" living room sofa folds flat for a full size bed.

We welcome well behaved dogs.

About Harbor Cottages, LLC, attn: Katherine Nelson

We live on a small farm in the beautiful Southern Pennsylvania countryside - but we absolutely LOVE to get away to this fabulous spot on the planet! Even early on New Years morning, we don't want to miss the Tundra Swans.The dogs won't be left behind!

Harbor Cottages, LLC, attn: Katherine Nelson purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Harbor Cottages, LLC, attn: Katherine Nelson chose Chesapeake Bay

We took several day trips to this incredible community and nearby state parks, and fell in love with this quiet and beautiful beach only an hour from Washington DC. We have also succumbed to Fossil Hunting Mania.

What makes this cottage unique

There are many rainy day activities in this historic area - although many vacationers tell me they never left the cottage and beach.

Harbor Cottage was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Harbor Cottage. The location is fantastic across from the marina and a very short walk to the bay. Sitting on the patio enjoying a morning cup of coffee was very relaxing. Everyone walking by was very friendry. I would highly recommend this property for a peaceful getaway.

Lovely Cottage in a quiet area

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this lovely cottage. The owner was very helpful with all our questions. The openness of the kitchen, dining, and living room was wonderful. This is definitely going to be a recurring vacation spot for us. Thank you for a relaxing place where we can enjoy our pet. Life's better when they are with us.

Cute house.

  • 3 of 5

The house was very cute and a perfect size for the three of us. I loved sitting on the porch reading and relaxing. I did not like that the neighbors two dogs persistently and incessantly barked for the beginning of our trip. They actually woke us up at 6am one day and 7am the other. I did email Kathy who said she didn't know who's dogs they were but they magically stopped barking after I sent the email. The house definitely could have been cleaner. All of the pans were dirty and the first glass I took out of the cupboard had stuff all over it. Needless to say we washed everything before we used it. The bathroom smelled like urine and were very dusty. Location to DC was perfect as we made multiple day trips there. The beach has a lot of seaweed and not for swimming. Our little boy was upset about that. Beach also had garbage on it and obnoxious young adults. It got better when there was someone at the gate monitoring.

Owner's Response: Expect to experience nature here. Our beach is a natural and fairly wild place. While we residents pick up flotsam, which after fireworks on the 4th of July can wash in for weeks, it is a never ending job. Our beach has no lifeguard and not cleaned overnight by machines like in a resort town. Water conditions vary with rainfall and tides.
