wonderful location and terrific owners!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic location for a fun filled long holiday weekend.

Martin, the owner, was close by that weekend and was super helpful. He offered to let us check in one night early and check in one day later which is really unheard of for the most part. We were unable to do so but that really stood out to us. In addition, he took some time to chat with us about the area and offered to lend us some lifejackets and kayaks. And what a nice surprise to get a phone call to thank us for leaving the house in great condition.

The location of the house was what set this house apart from others in the area. The private dock was what it was all about. We were able to take keep paddleboards there and launch from the dock or jump off for a swim. (Annapolis Canoe and Kayak were very reasonable for the weekend rate). Nights were really awesome to just sit around and enjoy the water and watch the crabs float by. Mornings were just as lovely to grab a cup of tea and dangle our feet in the water.

The Epping Forest community was a plus. The kids loved the private beach with the diving board into the river. We were there on the holiday weekend during two days of family activities at the beach that we were able to take part in if we wanted to. Everything from pie eating contests to tug of war.

The house had plenty of room for all of us and all of the water facing decks were a bonus.

In addition, we were only about a 10 minute drive into historic Annapolis!

Planning to take another trips back for sure.

Amazing home, perfect for weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented the home with a few friends after a military ball at USNA. First off, the drive from the Academy to the house is quick and easy (it took us about 10-15 mins). The house itself was perfect for us. It has a beautiful wrap around porch in the back half of the home looking out onto the water. The kitchen looks small but is surprisingly easy to work in (we had 3 guys all working together in it to make breakfast). There are two great lounge areas both upstairs and downstairs complete with a fusbol table. The house was very clean and Martin was a gracious and helpful host. The Annapolis mall is nearby as well as downtown Annapolis so you will never run out of activities to do or restaurants to try. I will definitely be staying at this property again and I highly recommend it for anyone needing a place to stay in Annapolis.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is a super late review, but does not diminish how much we loved staying at Martin's home. We love the Severn River, the swimming, fishing, and kayaking were great for the whole family. The house has beautiful views at sunset, we could not have found a better place for our annual family vacation. We had an a/c issue the first night but Martin was super responsive and it was fixed quickly. We are already looking forward to next summer! Thanks again for a great stay.

Fantastic Winter Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful weekend! The Lowens were great hosts, communicating everything we needed to know before and after our stay. The home was comfortable, spacious and well stocked. The views were incredibly beautiful. I am not a morning person, but I was up at dawn everyday so I wouldn't miss the gorgeous sunrises. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Lowen, for a lovely family weekend. Can't wait to come back and enjoy the house during warmer weather.

Wonderful experience!

We had a beautiful winter weekend at the Lowen's home. The hosts were fantastic communicating everything we needed to know before and after our stay. The home was comfortable, well stocked and spacious. The views were indescribably beautiful. I'm not a morning person, but I was up at dawn. There was no way I was going to miss those beautiful sunrises. We had a lovely weekend and can't wait to go back. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Lowen.

Great!!! The area is secluded and private.

  • 5 of 5

I originally was reluctant to send in deposit, simply because I thought it was to good to be true. Well I was wrong, we had a great stay and the accomodations for the 8 of us was perfect. I travel to the Annapolis area every year for 2 weeks and I already asked Martin to keep the security deposiy for next year!!!!!
