Cobb Island House Rental Photos and Description

Waterfront AND Beachfront Home, , 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9) + Crib

"Eagles Wings" is the ONLY rental home on Cobb Island with BOTH a BEACH (great for children to play in the sand and collect sea glass) AND a large SCREENED-IN PORCH with wide river views (for relaxing in the shade during the day and for "mosquito-free" dinners when the sun sets). Our home has comfortable upscale leather furnishings with a kitchen well equipped for the gourmet cook. Located on Cobb Island in Southern Maryland (a one hour drive from the Washington, DC Beltway) our home is situated where the Wicomico River joins up with the mighty Potomac.

There are large floor to ceiling windows throughout the house giving the feel of being "outside" even when you are "inside". Our large and comfortably furnished screened-in porch allows you to be "outside" long after the sun has set. The river views are amazing everywhere you look! Upscale and comfortable furnishings throughout the house add to the relaxing feel of being on Cobb Island.

The private pier for fishing & boating, the large lower deck for sunbathing, our unique beach for children to play, our panoramic waterfront views from our incredible screened-in porch combined with our comfortable furnishings make our 4 bedroom and 2 bath vacation home a special getaway. Dining area is off the kitchen or you have the option of dining out on our screened-in porch. Post dinner family games and puzzles out on the porch are a fun option, too!

We provide kayaks, fishing rods, bicycles and even a crab trap for our guests. Cobb Island is a great, quiet (best kept secret) and the perfect place for a relaxing vacation with family and friends. Our repeat guests are a testament to just how much people enjoy our dual riverfront and beachfront home. Please take a moment to read all the wonderful reviews our guests have written about their stay with us.

About Nancy Mullan

I am retired and enjoy spending time on Cobb with my children and grandchildren. It is our favorite family vacation spot and we invite you to experience special family times in this special island setting.

Nancy Mullan purchased this house in 1997

Why Nancy Mullan chose Chesapeake Bay

My husband and I owned a beach house in Bethany Beach, Delaware for many years. Sometime in the mid 1990s (while we were stuck in traffic trying to cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to our home in Bethany Beach) we decided it was time to find a place with an easier commute from Northern Virginia. We landed on Cobb Island and never looked back! It is an easy 75 minute commute from our Northern Virginia home and those coming from the Greater Washington DC area will appreciate not having to cross the Bay Bridge to get to our wonderful island home.

What makes this house unique

A short drive to Washington DC. It is a Single Family Home with both a private waterfront beach and a large screened in porch (both are unique to our Cobb Island home!) plus a large waterfront dock and lower deck for sunbathing, all with expansive river views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aside from the occassional jellyfish (due to small children the lifeguard closed the beach for a few minutes), we all had a great vacation! Our 2 children (1 & 2 yrs old) got to experience many new and exciting things, like crabs! Everyone of us leaves with great memories (&pictures) of your incredible house and amazing scenery. Hopefully we will be able to visit again. Thanks!

Our best faily vacation in years!

  • 5 of 5

"My entire family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at this beautiful waterfront house which is a hard feat to accomplish simply because we have 3 generations of children, all of course with different interests and expectations. Our youngest daughter is a rising 5th grader, our son will be graduating H.S. and our oldest daughter will be graduating from Grad School this year.

The house was was very clean, well decorated, spacious and most importantly lived up to the owners billing of having a true gourmet kitchen which just delighted my wife as she loves to cook.

The views were spectacular, the fishing and crabbing was excellent, the local restaraunt food was fantastic, the neighbors very friendly, the kayaking a lot fun and the private sandy beach was simply icing on the cake.

We also took a ride up to Baltimore for a day and saw the Red Sox play the Orioles and visited some sights in D.C. as they are not that far away.

I highly recommend this rental property to anyone seeking a truly enjoyable relaxing vacation. We enjoyed it so much that we plan on coming back again next year!

4 Times and Counting

  • 5 of 5

The family has rented this beautiful home the past two summers and the past two Thanksgivings. I guess you could say we are hooked on it. You will be too! There are no negatives! The price is very fair considering what you get. Great for grandparents, parents and grandchildren. Even the neighbor on both sides of the home are special people. The location is ideal...Cobb Island is a gem. The house is well maintained and very clean. It is beautifully decorated with a large front room / family room and a large screen porch to die for. It is close to the water and has a real nice beach, particularly for the kids. We highly recommend it. The pictures will give you a good idea of what I am talking about.

family memories

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 4 children under age 4, one and all, enjoyed so many aspects of our stay in this vacation home. The beach, ample front yard, goregous screened-in front porch with a waterfront view and a fully-equipped kitchen are just a few. The children enjoyed searching for sea glass, shells, fireflies, fishing worms, fish, and catching a crab, etc. Long walks, kayak rides, and a nearby playground rounded out the outdoor activities for all ages, too.

Our Cobb Island Waterfront Home vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our group (age 66-3 months) spent a week at Ed's and Nancy's home at the end of August and found it a delightful relaxing vacation. Everything is "as advertised." The house is just as pictured. It has high quality furnishings, comfortable beds, large TVs, weber gas grill, etc., and a spacious screened in back porch/deck with a great view facing the mouth of the Wicomico River with a view of the Potomac and Virginia coast in the distance. We enjoyed the sunrises with a cup of coffee in the mornings, playing games and puzzles and reading during the day, and waning sunlight in the evenings with margaritas and snacks.

My two grandboys - age 5 and 7 spent all day exploring the little beach and swimming with life jackets and floats around the pier and collecting shells and glass. There are a lot of birds to watch - ducks, gulls, geese. There is an osprey nest two lots over and you can watch the ospreys fish and carry their catch to their nest in a pine tree by the river. We got "old chicken-crab bait" at the little market and kept the crab trap loaded all week so that by Friday, we had enough legal crabs to have steam and eat. (In spite of the poor season.)

There is no amusement park or boardwalk and the local restaurants are very limited, but there are kayaks to explore the coast and bikes to explore the little island and that beautiful back porch and view. I highly recommend it if it what I have described sounds appealing to you.

Peace, Relaxation and Beauty - All in One Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time vacationing at this beautiful house and we all agree that it is a winner and we are coming back. The location is ideal...Cobb Island is a gem. The house is well maintained and very clean. It is beautifully decorated with a large front room / family room and a large screen porch to die for. It is close to the water and has a real nice beach, particularly for the kids. On top of all this the rental price is reasonable. It is hard to see how anyone could not have a splendid vacation here. I highly recommend it. The pictures will give you a good idea of what I am talking about.

Wonderful week!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and inviting and the location was beautiful. Even the weather cooperated and was perfect. The house was roomy enough for our 3 generations but we all stayed outside most of the time. The kids kayaked and enjoyed the water, the men fished and cooked and the women relaxed. The neighbors were friendly but not intrusive.
