Come relax at this charming updated one bedroom bungalow. It overlooks the waters of Wells Cove, a tributary to the Patuxent River which is itself, a tributary to the Chesapeake Bay. This cottage is secluded from the main house, surrounded by water and a wild flower meadow.
Somewhat secluded from neighbors and the main house, you'll find this cottage cozy and romantic. It is charmingly decorated with a blend of antiques and art deco pieces. Sitting on the back deck you can watch the wildlife on Wells Cove: blue herons, jumping fish, ospreys, and gulls. In addition you'll have access to a private pier on the Cove where you can canoe, fish and crab. Head to the private swimming pool, located on the property, for a nice swim during those warm sunny days. The pool is stocked with many amenities including chaises, umbrellas, tables and rafts which you'll have access to.
Feel free to take the canoe out on the water or bring your own kayaks or similar small craft to enjoy on the Cove. Just outside your door you can enjoy swimming, boating, water sports, and crabbing! Other things to enjoy locally include nature walks/hiking on American Chestnut Land Trust trails and at Cypress Swamp Park, charter fishing at Solomons Island, fossil hunting at Calvert Cliffs State Park and wine tours at local vineyards. Look out for outdoor concert series happening during your time of stay. The Calvert Marine Museaum and Jeffeson Patterson Park Museum are two other great locations to visit.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this cottage in 1930
Beautiful and airy. Loved our time and our stay. Can't wait to return!
Hubby and I closed out our anniversary with a stay at this cute little spot! BEST CHOICE EVER!!!! The anticipation was so exciting and was all we talked about for weeks. And then the day came! When we walked in the door, we fell in love! This little peace of heaven FAR exceeded our expectations! I am a self-proclaimed "hotel-snob". The owner did an excellent job with the maintenance. The home is very clean and neat. Passed my "clean test" with flying colors!!
Like so many others, the outdoor shower was intriguing. We were a little nervous our first time. That, too, exceeded our expectation. It was so exciting taking a shower outside (wink wink!!!!!!!). And we did every chance we got! Also, the kitchen area was really nice. We were happy to not have to cook for a couple days.
We visited the area, ate great food and took in some spectacular sites. This has been a wonderful weekend. We have decided that we will make this an annual thing!
The only things that made our stay uncomfortable was the lack of window treatment in the living area and bathroom. It would've been nice to have the option to pull the blinds at night or during trips to the bathroom. Also, the living room configuration was a little challenging. Sharing the sofa closest to the tv caused neck pain and sitting on the sofa across the room caused a little eye strain. But, we watched the TV so little that it didn't matter. And finally, we were unable to connect to the Wifi. None of these, however, were deal breakers! We will be back regardless!!!!!
So many of our friends are already checking this place out for their next getaway!!!
My husband and I wanted a relaxing spot to spend a few night while our youngest daughter was at a leadership camp in D.C. The bungalow was the perfect spot. The setting was very peaceful and we enjoyed hanging out at the pool all by our selves. Don't be worried about the out door shower, it was fine.
My wife & I loved this place as well as our stay here. The cottage was very clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable & in a peaceful safe area. We day tripped to Point Lookout State Park (a bit of a drive but worth it), had dinner in Solomon's Island, used our kayaks almost everywhere we went (including in Wells Cove & the Patuxent River), fished, biked & just plain enjoyed our time in the area. There is a lot to do in the area & I know we only scratched the surface, but when we return we'll be looking to stay in this beautiful cottage again. Thank you!
The scenery was calming and peaceful. The cottage was very cute and furnished country style. There were two challenges for me. The lack of an indoor shower and no kitchen area. It did have microwave and tiny fridge however. The bathroom could use a shelf over sick that could hold cosmetics, shaving things, etc. That being said we are campers so we have had to improvise before. The host was a lovely person and very helpful. I don't want to sound ungrateful because it was a really cute cottage. Just needs a little improvement. The Solomons area was lovely and the Prince Fredricks North beach was awesome. Stonys seafood was wonderful. Try the crab cakes.
The cottage was just as we expected -- clean, cozy, and in a beautiful setting. The owners were lovely; they definitely went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The pool and dock were great and easily accessible. And the location is wonderful! We did several day trips -- one to Calvert Cliffs, one to the nearby cyprus swamp -- and we made sure to enjoy the area's restaurants. We highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a refreshing weekend retreat!
