About Lauri Bruce
We recently purchased the cottage next door from family friends. We set about converting it to open, airy cottage. We have lived in this neighborhood for over 30 years and are happy to share this amazing and magical place with you. Scott is a retired Navy Test Pilot still working at the Naval Air Test Center and Lauri is a Yoga Therapist and Senior Instructor at St Mary's County's local Yoga studio, Evolve Yoga and Wellness. We are happy to help you make your stay as memorable as possible. Enjoy!
Lauri Bruce purchased this Cottage in 2017
Why Lauri Bruce chose Leonardtown
Valley Lee Maryland has been home to us since 1984. The home next to the cottage was our first home we ever purchased. This is one of the most beautiful spots on earth. We have travel extensively but for pure peace and beauty this is it for us.
What makes this Cottage unique
You can see some body of water from every room in the house. The living room faces west and the sunsets paint the house with every color you can imagine. You can swim, float, borrow our kayaks, fish, crab and just sit and gaze at the beauty around you. Enjoy a picnic or a cookout and dine as the sunset over the Potomac.

Absolutely loved this place!
The house is beyond beautiful with views from every window and comfortable beds. Everything you could need was stocked in the house from paper towels, to sheets and beach towels. The owners are amazing people. Did so many little extras for our boys and us! Too many to list! We loved our stay and cant wait to come back next year!
Such a great stay
We had a wonderful experience staying at Lauri and Scott's cottage. It was the perfect get away. The home was recently renovated and is beautiful, with an open floor plan and lots of beautiful touches. The back of the home opens right up to the Potomac and is the perfect place to sit and relax under the sun and stars. Our boys had such fun playing in the water too. Lauri and Scott were wonderful hosts, answered every question and were easily available if needed. The home was well stocked with linens, cleaning supplies and even soaps for the kitchen/bath/laundry. We felt right at home and welcomed there. We knew that our comfort was a priority and our family of five appreciated it! We hope to be back!
The View and Beach House are Perfect !!!!!
Lauri is a great host and met us at the property to show us around and gave us directions for a great waterfront diner and local shopping. Quiet, peaceful and tastefully decorated Beach House - Everything you would need and then some! If you are looking for a beach house with amazing views - this is it!
Information of local attractions, shopping and adventures are provided in a binder at the cottage.
