Accommodations: House, 5 Bedrooms + 1 Convertible bed, 2 Full Baths & 2 Half Baths (Sleeps 11)

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!

Amazing Property, Amazing Location, Amazing Neighbors

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what can I say, this is just an amazing property. My wife, 3 kids and in-laws all stayed at the house and it was just perfect. 5 very nice bedrooms and Chris (the owner) was very helpful answering all of my questions. The neighborhood is great, both neighbors took the time to walk over when they saw us on the beach and introduce themselves. Bill the property manager even took time out to teach my kids how to crab with chicken necks and string!! We caught real Maryland blue crabs right on the dock. An overall amazing experience.

Quiet Neighborhood, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week stay in this gorgeous, riverfront home. Though it was cold and windy during our stay we spent some time on the beach relaxing and the kids really enjoyed the game tables in the basement. The neighborhood is to die for. We couldn’t help but wonder what it would be like to live in such a beautiful place. We even met a couple of the neighbors who were kind and welcoming. They even invited us over for some beers. If we find ourselves in the Maryland again we will definitely book this home again. Thanks for everything.

Great view and fire pit a plus!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful trip to Crownsville. The house was well equipped and the view was great. Friends docked their boat and we were able to enjoy some fabulous restaurants. There were even some toys at the beach area for our 3-year old. First night some of our adults complained about the stairs to beach but by second day it was just good exercise. Highly recommend!

Fantastic family vacation and property

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic multigenerational family vacation with four kids (2.5, 3, 3.5 & 5.5). Excellent home with well stocked boat shed an added bonus. Everything we needed and more to make a lifetime of family memories. Very helpful, informative and responsive property owner a plus.

Also visited the Pirate Adventure in Annapolis, Watkins Regional Park near DC and the National Aquarium in Baltimore.
