Maryland House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

The house is located in an old fashioned charming community called Banks O'Dee, on a creek right off the historic Potomac River. The community is very small and quiet, and the neighbors are very friendly!

The house itself is over 3000 square feet. The master bedroom is 20 x 26 with its own private bath, spiral staircase, and offers a 180 degree view of Cuckold Creek and Perry Branch. The family room features a wood burning fireplace, floor to ceiling windows, and access to the screened in porch. Three of the four bedrooms upstairs have access to the sunny deck for morning coffee and afternoon sunbathing. We have a large pier, boat ramp and a small sandy beach. It's not unusual to be sitting out in the yard, near the pier, and see bald eagles, osprey, swans & great blue heron doing their thing.

Check out our weekday special!!!

Check-in on a Sunday 4pm & Check-out by 12pm Friday

Rate = $1200.00

What makes this house unique

If you are looking to go somewhere, very private, very quiet, to get away from the craziness of suburban life, this is the place. No cars driving by all the time, all you hear are the sounds of nature! Birds, ducks, fish splashing, a boat going by once in a while. The kind of noise you just don't mind!

The house was spacious and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This get-a-way was perfect for me and my kids. We live a very hectic lifestyle so lots of R&R was definitely needed. It was nice to wake up to a beautiful view and my kids had a great time catching all the fish. I would definitely rent again.

Thank you Frank!

All the comforts of home on the water!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about our stay! It was the most beautiful and relaxing place to call home for a while. The owner went out of his way to accommodate us at the last minute and again when we needed to extend our stay a few days. The neighbors are friendly and the street is very private and quiet. The wildlife was phenomenal (bald eagle, water fowl, deer, etc..) and we really enjoyed afternoons out on the canoe. There was a play set for the kids and a fireplace for me. The kitchen was well-equipped and made mealtime easy. There is so much room inside to spread out and the satellite tv in almost every room was really great. I loved waking up to those gorgeous water views of the sunrise! The screened in back porch was my favorite spot for morning coffee and the on the warmer evenings, we hung out on the second floor balcony. The views are incredible! Whether you are coming for a weekend or a month, with your spouse or several families all together this home is a great choice!

Nice House

  • 5 of 5

House was nice and clean. It was big enough for the 3 families that went. Had everything from board games, canoe, fishing rods, and cook ware. Frank was very quick in responses and helpful. Only minor thing was wifi limited to 5gb and one person was on call at work. We ran out because it rained so we had to stay indoors for a day. Otherwise, everything else was great and would return next time.

What a Great Stay! Truly a Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly amazed how quiet the neighborhood is and how tranquility seemed to set in almost immediately upon entering the driveway! The wildlife alone, we saw Ducks, Seagulls, Bald Eagles, Blue Heron and some of their nests were in these towering evergreen trees that are along side of the home. It was truly amazing! We used the canoe that is on the property and really took advantage of some photo moments while on the creek. We all had such a wonderful time, I am sorry it is taking me so long to write this. If you re looking to get away from it all... this is the place to go to!

Nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Banks O'Dee is a pleasant 4 bedroom home which is as described and pictured. This is a rural setting with nice waterfront and 1:20 from downtown DC in reasonable traffic. This would be a great place for a family gathering and worked out well for us and our small dog. There is a nice dog park at Turkey Hill Rd and 301. We also found an excellent place for doggie day care (ADDO on US-1 in Alexandria and 2 other location) to leave the dog when touring indoors in DC. We had no problem with him on a leash near the memorials as long as one person stayed with him just outside the memorial. Old Ebbitt Grill valet let us park 50 feet from the valet stand with him in the car.

Capt John's Crab House on Cobb Island was good and close, but we preferred Gilligan's Pier on Pope's Creek Rd. Texas BarBQ on the south side of La Plata on 301 was great for take out on the way home.

The house was clean and had comfortable chairs and beds. The broadband ran at about 1.5mb which is pretty good for how far out in the country you are (I think it was satellite like the TV signal).

The only real negative we had was having to wash, dry, and fold the bedding and towels before we left which means you cannot leave for 2 to 3 hours after you get up on your last day, and we only used 2 beds. Doing 1 or 2 loads of wash would be fine, but drying does take a while.
