About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Summerlee awaits you (5 bedrooms, 5 baths total). This classic beach house has been fully renovated and luxuriously appointed. The house features an open floor plan for easy entertaining. Situated directly on Chesapeake, hear the waves while you cook, read or relax; see diverse wildlife including, herons, swans, ospreys, bald eagles, and pelicans through expansive glass doors, from the screened-in porch, the wrap-around deck or the large deck off the master bedroom. Or, grab a beach chair or towel and head for the private sandy beach. The open floor plan, complete with a large kitchen, dining room, 2 sitting rooms and a TV room allows a large family or group to be together whether cooking, playing games, watching television or just relaxing. A crackling fire in the wood burning fireplace makes winter days at Summerlee as enticing as summer days. Enjoy a weekend wine tasting at nearby Woodlawn plantation - Slack wines dot com.

A short-bike ride away is Point Lookout State Park, a Civil War site. Today the park, which is located at the intersection of the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River, hosts miles of protected land set aside for biking, kayaking, boating, fishing, camping or enjoying nature as well as a museum that provides a historical perspective on the region. Or charter a boat at one of many local marinas for a day of fishing on the Bay. Another nearby historical site is St. Mary's City (10 miles), the original capital of Maryland. Visitors are 25 minutes from dining and shopping on Solomon's Island or in historic Leonardtown. Or enjoy one of several local marina restaurants. Want a day trip away? All that the nation's capital has to offer is a short 80 miles away.

Collect shells and beach glass while walking uninterrupted for miles along the sandy beach. Unlike typical cheek-by-jowl beach houses, Summerlee offer its visitors bayfront accommodations on an acre of land. Enjoy rare waterfront privacy so close to major cities and amenities.

About Peggy Binzel

Love urban life; also, love the isolated beach with amazing wildlife. Scotland is a welcome retreat from hectic city life.

Peggy Binzel purchased this house in 2007

Why Peggy Binzel chose Point Lookout

Scotland is a rare find. Rarely do you find an area that begins with beautiful forests and opens up onto fabulous beaches. Little traffic but only 2 hours from Washington or Baltimore. I discovered a jewel.

What makes this house unique

Sunrise over the Bay with morning coffee is heavenly. Walks on the beach. Take a 30 minute kayak ride or a 5 hours one - very convenient out the front door. Enjoy a tasting of good quality local wines at beautiful Woodlawn plantation just 10 miles away.

This home was peace and beauty all in one. The home is well decorated with everything and clean!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we entered this well hidden gem until we left (we didn’t want to leave!), we loved this rental. The water, the inlet (full of crabs just for the picking), the location - we enjoyed it all. We will be back and thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Wonderful Weekend at the beach in January

  • 5 of 5

We took advantage of a last minute weekend deal at Summerlee with 3 other families to just get away and spend time together. This is our 3rd stay at one of Peggy's properties in the past 4 months, and we can't get enough! Summerlee is our favorite. The wood burning fireplace, big, cozy couches, well appointed kitchen, screen porch and waterfront view makes this home so very special. We all arrived Friday evening, quickly got settled in and started a cozy fire. We spent Saturday walking the beach, collecting sea glass and shells. We spent time putting together a massive puzzle on the dining room table, which is big enough to accommodate dinner and a puzzle! Some folks snuck in a nap, some read, some watched movies, there is plenty of room for everyone to do just what they want to do! The linens are always of the best quality, the beds are made to melt in to. We all left out on Sunday in agreement, we are all in for another amazing weekend at Summerlee, no mater the time of year! Thanks to Peggy and her crew for always making our stay perfect!

Best winter retreat destination!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated, comfortable home right on the water. Our group of ten enjoyed a wonderful three days there, playing cards and golf, exploring the park, historical St. Mary’s City and heading over to Solomon’s for seafood. We love Peggy’s houses, great ammenities and designed for maximum guest comfort - will be back again next winter!

Excellent Girls Weekend spot

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th annual Girls weekend at SummerLee in the winter. It is perfect size with 5 bedrooms (7 separate beds) and the open floor plan of kitchen, dining, family and sitting area. We usually spend the evenings sitting around the fireplace with a glass of wine and chatting. The sunrises are spectacular from the house or beach and shopping at Solomon's Island or Slack Winery or Wine & Design are not too far of a drive.

A Great Merry Christmaas

  • 5 of 5

Dear Peggy,

To begin with, we loved the house. We loved having 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. It was beautifully furnished and we enjoyed the three sitting areas. The Christmas tree was

perfect. The location on the beach provided a great view and got us all out hiking.

We also spent a couple of hours hiking at Pt. Lookout, State Park!

We wish you a Happy New Year!

Great place for Bay fishing

  • 4 of 5

We have a group that goes fishing on the Bay every year. This was the second year we stayed at Summerlee, and once again it was comfortable and convenient to everything we needed.
