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 St. Leonard

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.

A cute and comfy house with great views

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two dogs and I enjoyed staying at the Harbor Cottage for a few days. The house was cozy and clean, and we loved having coffee and wine on the deck overlooking the marina. The beach was a couple of minutes' walk away, so that was very convenient, especially with the pups. The beach wasn't crowded, even on the weekend, and during the weekdays we almost had it to ourselves in the mornings. The neighborhood that house is in is also very serene and pretty, so we had lovely walks with our dogs during the stay. There were a few restaurant and shopping options nearby, and even Solomons Island was maybe a 20 min drive away.

Katherine was a great host - very accommodating and responsive! I would recommend this house and we would definitely stay there again.

Relaxing stay at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing stay at Chesapeake Bay Harbor Cottage. It was the perfect size for our family of 3 plus 2 dogs. The beach was a short walk down the street and practically private as there was no one around. It was a wonderful quick get away from the city and we hope to be visiting again.
