Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying Paul owns an amazing home. I recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan, and 15 of my closest friends and I were looking to go on a vacation. After long hours of searching, we found the Crow's nest in Annapolis. Wow, what a beautiful home and property. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the kitchen has everything you need for cooking. The yard is spacious both front and back, and everything is as advertised. I would definitely recommend this home for anyone's vacation, and I plan on returning at my next possible convenience.

I would like to say to Paul the owner Thank You!!! Thank You!!! Thank You!! I had a wonderful experience. My best girl friend surprise me and another friend with this trip. We both lost ours dad's around the same time. When we arrived to the Crow's Nest it was breath taking. House was very clean, large back and front yard, gas grill, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Cable, fishing swimming, sight seeing, The neighbor's very friendly, I would rather rent a house apposing to a hotel, very private near by stores, malls, outlets. I even went to Frederick Douglass house thanks to one of Paul's neighbor Dee. Shot out to Dee!! We are trying to make reservation for August before the kids go back to school. I fell in love with the Crow's Nest.. Its a very nice place to come and relax you won't regret it!!

great getaway for families

  • 5 of 5

We spent Father's Day weekend at the Crow's Nest with friends. It is a great house with access to swimming and fishing for little ones. The house was clean and comfortable. The large yard and grill patio were excellent for cooking out and enjoying meals together. The neighborhood is friendly and inviting. The owner Paul was friendly and went out of his way to make our experience as enjoyable and comfortable as possible both leading up to and during the stay.

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

with our daughter being married at nearby Annapolis Naval College, we felt that having a 'home' rather than a hotel would serve us better as we were traveling over from the United Kingdom - best decision ever!

From the initial contact right through to our arrival in May, Mr Lehman was always available to answer any of our questions.

The accomodation was perfect for our needs, Mr Lehman was extremely helpful and did all that he could to ensure my family enjoyed their stay.

I would not hesitate in recommending this family home.

Owner's Response: We were delighted to play a very small role in your daughter's big day. Congratulations to the groom and good luck to the bride!!! We hope that when your travels bring you back 'across the pond'...you will avail yourselves of your new home away from home. Royal Navy are always welcome at the Crow's Nest Cottage!
