This home is convenient to Annapolis - the 'Sailing Capital of the World', Baltimore, Washington, DC and Maryland's Eastern Shore. With this location, you can choose from a wealth of cultural, sporting, or sight seeing events & activities.

You and your family can use this home as your “home away from home” while you visit our nation’s capital, Washington DC. Enjoy multiple cultural venues (Broadway shows, the National Ballet, Opera), a plethora of museums, the National Arboretum, and sights too numerous and spectacular to describe. Your family can visit Baltimore, the sight of early waterfront shipping and trade, and partake of its cultural offerings and sights. The historic town of Annapolis, the Capital of Maryland, is a short drive away. The State House where George Washington resigned his commission as Commander in Chief of the Continental Army is in the center of town. Main Street offers wonderful shopping, restaurants and a scenic perspective of waterfront towns of old. Annapolis is the home of the United States Naval Academy and one can see Midshipmen around town. This will truly be a vacation your family will treasure forever!

Extremely Clean, Plenty of Beds, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Before arriving we received plenty of information about the property, which allowed us to plan ahead. Great communication.

It was extremely clean and well maintained. There was plenty of sleeping accommodations. The house was very well laid out to accommodate a large group. Ample amounts of beds and bathrooms.

Great Property!!!!! We will return.

My only suggestion would be a few simple necessities left for renters. Such as, a small can of coffee, etc....

We where over all very pleased!

The house in the river exceeded my expectations. RATES AAA

  • 5 of 5

This is my first time using this process. I live in Washington state and came to Maryland for vacation and wedding. The house was amazing. Top notch amenities. I have traveled and vacationed often over the years and have never stayed in a house that you couldn't tell was a rental. It was refreshing. I was proud to have a bridal shower there as well as entertain family from Colorado, North Carolina and Baltimore. I will definitely stay here again, and definitely use this site again

Wonderful Holiday Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here over the Christmas holiday and had a wonderful time. Chris was great to work with. The house had plenty of space for 4 adults and 3 kids. It had nice homey touches and a wonderful view. We had no problem getting to downtown Annapolis, the mall and everywhere else we needed to go. We will definitely consider this home again when we are not traveling with pets.

Had a fantastic week with our children and 2 grandchildren, ages 3 and 1.

Beach area was perfect for them. Enjoyed use of canoe and kayak.

Home was very clean and spacious. Having a gas grill was very handy.

Neighbors very friendly as well.

Convenient to Baltimore harbor area as well as downtown Annapolis.

Great week with the extended family!

  • 5 of 5

This house was simply perfect for our extended family group of eleven. It was extremely clean and cupboards all labeled for easy access and return of dishes and utensils. Great sleeping and bathing arrangements.The beautiful sandy shore was wonderful for swimming and boating.

Best of all was the communication with the owner. A quick e-mail checking on our satisfaction was very welcoming. We mentioned that we couldn't find the centerboard for the Sunfish sailboat, and were amazed within the hour to receive directions to find a new one in the garage.

The location was fabulous for our excursions to Georgetown, Alexandria, the Capitol, Annapolis, and Baltimore. We will definitely return.

Fantastic setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and enjoyed our visit. The house is beautifully decorated and the views are amazing. The kitchen is nicely appointed and the dining table is large and easily accomodated our party of 7. There is a nice gas grill that we used several times.

We had fun using the canoe and kayaks and tere are life life jackets for all sizes. The stairs to the beach are quite steep and not recommended for those with mobility issues. It provided a nice work out to go down to the beach!

The beds were comfortable with upgraded linens. As mentioned in previous review, the bathroom set up is different with everyone having to share one of the en suite showers. It was not a big deal overall and this was not an issue wit our group. There are no bedrooms on the main level, be prepared to take some stairs.

The owner was friendly and responsive to all requests. Our deposit was refunded promptly. We plan on returning!
