Our Home on the Cove: waterfront, peaceful, wooded, comfy, family friendly

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

5 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 11-15

Sitting on 8 acres of water front property, Our Home on the Cove is a cottage with 5 bedrooms and room for a family of 4 or 15 to run and play. “The Pines” provides space for volleyball, tag, horseshoes and campfires (yum- s’mores), as well as lounge chairs to watch the water drift by. Swimming in our Cove is a delight and sunbathing on the dock is equally relaxing. The fenced in swing set is a great place to let the little ones play. Don’t be surprised to catch a few fish, crabs or even a turtle right off of the pier. Paddling around in the canoe will provide a unique view of our home from the water, and wandering our nature trail will provide an insight into the local wildlife. When all this activity makes you hungry, the kitchen is stocked with enough cookware to feed upward of fifteen people; eat at the kitchen table, or on the screened in porch. After dark, star gazing from the dock is an ideal activity, or make a bonfire! Our Home is truly a place to make memories.

Our entire family enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home. You were extremely helpful and accomodating. We loved the firepit, the dock, and the gas grill. The house is in a beautiful, secluded location and is very calm and peaceful. Thanks for a relaxing, fun week! The Johnson Family

Great spot to ring in the New Year

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent NYE weekend at the shore and it was a great location to celebrate the holiday. Although, we normally spend a weekend here during the summer...the winter was just as beautiful. We were still able to make a fire and grill outside. The snow on the pier and the frozen river were gorgeous to look at first thing in the morning. The house was able to sleep all 11 of us and had enough room to accommodate our family dinners. After this trip, I'm definitely considering to return at any point of the year.

USNA Graduation

  • 5 of 5

We will very pleased with our stay in "Our Home on the Cove". The booking process was easy and pleasant. Abby communicated well and was helpful In the booking process. Her father met us at check in and walked us through the workings of the house. There was plenty of things to do on the property including crabbing, fishing, volleyball, canoe riding and a place to build a camp fire. They even had a playground area for our 5 year daughter.

The house was in a quiet location just minutes from Pasadena and about 25 minutes from Annapolis. We were there for my son's graduation from USNA. It was a great location for us.

We would recommend this property to anyone who wants a quiet getaway.

Great place to hang out outside for families

  • 5 of 5

The dock was great for fishing and crabbing. The canoes were great for getting on the water, the fenced in playground was wonderful for the little kids-we just added a few bags of new sand. We had not played horse shoes in a long time-much fun. The house set up is a little different with no bathroom on the main floor, but not a big deal. Loved the big tables for all 9 of us eating. Owners were very helpful and flexible.

A blast of a vacation

Everyone had a great time!! Our crabbing experience was priceless, catching as well as eating. The house was big enough to accommodate our big family. We will certainly recommend.

Fun in the sun at the shore!

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed our stay at the shore house. The kids had lots to do and spent a lot of time swimming and jumping off the dock. The house was large enough for everyone and was kid friendly. Abby was very kind and easy to work with. She was prompt in returning our deposit as well.
