In spite of almost a week of rain, we still had a great time. There were eleven of us but the house is so well planned that we didn't get in each others way. We had planned to be out and about for the week but mother nature did not have the same plan. With three separate sitting areas inside, we had plenty of room to spread out . Overall a great week.

Nice views and quality space.

  • 4 of 5

The Big House is the big house, at least in this quite neighborhood. Good quality space, wonderful views and a great tree to sit under.

One room has six singles, so its great for families with lot of kids.

Friendly and responsive management.

Only a few issues to alert management to:

The no stick pans are getting worn out.

The requirement to not just fill the dishwasher but to store all things back in the cabinets before departure adds logistical complications; best avoided by adding $15 to the rent.

The powder room has a musty smell.

Enjoyable week vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the "Big House" for a family vacation. We had 12 adults and 3 small children. There was plenty of room for all of us to enjoy the spacious house and porch. The view from the porch especially at sun rise was outstanding. The pictures on this site do not do the house justice. We had to bring our own sheets and towels. We found out after we arrived that the bedroom with the two double beds were actually two queen beds. Ron was great to work with and answered any questions we had.

Very nice home, on the waterfront, between Herrington Harbor North and South marinas

  • 5 of 5

The Big House at Tracy's Landing had plenty of space for our family gathering of 6 adults and 4 pre teens. We brought our own towels and sheets since there is no linen service, just bedspreads and pillows provided on the beds. We enjoyed the porches w plenty of seating and great view of the bay. Enjoyed a day in WADC and neighboring towns. About a 40 minute boat ride to Annapolis. We plan to return.

Perfect Waterfront Property Close to DC

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful weekend at the Big House. The house was clean and comfortable with a great location. There is plenty of room for a large group to spread out- lots of beds/bedrooms, multiple sitting areas and great outdoor space. The kitchen is big with two ovens which makes cooking for a large group much easier. I would love to visit again during the summer to enjoy the beach and the great outside space!

Practically Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, well-appointed, right on the beach, and less than an hour away from DC. It had everything we wanted and more.
