Point Lookout House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

Savor dramatic penthouse views in your own private beach house. This light-filled four-story house offers the best in outdoor luxury living. Surrounded by glass and balconies on every level, Kentigern provides bedrooms with private balconies and great gathering spaces, all in one home. Enjoy the fun of your group and then retreat to your own space. Fall asleep to the sound of waves in the background. Wake up to fabulous sunrises over the Chesapeake Bay. This is a house you won’t want to leave.

Kentigern is sited on its own 2 acre sandy lot with a beach at the south end. For the adventurer, 2 kayaks on premise are provided for guest use. Kayak directly on the Chesapeake Bay or in the quiet solitude of one of the creeks where you and the herons may be the only guests. This house is an away destination: Herons are joined by osprey, bald eagles, pelicans and the occasional dolphin or two.

Scotland is steeped in history, too. St. Mary’s City, 10 miles away, is the original capital of Maryland. The area dates back to the 1600s and was one of the early colonies. Only 80 miles away is the nation’s capital, Washington, DC – if you can drag yourself away from the beautiful beach setting. Point Lookout Park, a Civil War POW camp and now a large park and campground, is only a short bike ride away. Nestled between the Bay and the Potomac River, the Park is worth an expedition.

Return to Kentigern again and again.

Kentigern is heaven.

  • 5 of 5

Kentigern is a wonderful home. And I say home not house. As soon as you enter you just feel so comfortable. Everything you need is there. There were 8 of us. All adults. The place is big enough that everyone could have their own space if needed. Unfortunately we had much rain and wind, but we made the most of it by doing a puzzle, listening to music and cooking, eating and making cocktails. We did get a few walks on the beach in between the rain drops .Our last full day there was spent finally kayaking and BBQ ing.Our group has been coming to Peggy s from a few years now and we are never disappointed. I only wish we lived a little closer. 5 hrs drive from NJ. We would definitely come more often.

Great house, hot and buggy.

  • 4 of 5

The house is wonderful and practical, much nicer than the pictures.

It could use some extra cleaning for dust and old bug blood, but overall a great vacation place.

On some days there was a crazy amount of bugs right outside, where you almost got eaten alive ;-)

There is so much that this property offers - lovely views from every bedroom and the living room area, nice beach, bikes, fire pit, fishing and kayaking. We all enjoyed it so much.

Perfectly located

It's too bad that you can't upload pictures as part of the review on VRBO because there are several great sunrise pictures that we took during our stay here. The view was as good as you could possibly get. We were lucky enough to rent the property for the week of our anniversary and even luckier to have great weather the entire stay. Also, there weren't many other renters in the surrounding properties so we had the beach to ourselves every day. This was great because it gave our Golden Retriever lots of uninterrupted play and swim time. This was her first time swimming in open water and she absolutely loved it. I even got her to go kayaking with me for the first time. For the time we were there the water was very calm for all but one day so it was great for swimming.

The house itself is definitely the nicest property we ever rented. Just about every room looked as if it had been featured in Pottery Barn. Plus, every bedroom had a great view of the water - even the master bathroom. The elevator was a huge plus for us because our dog was too scared to go up the stairs. We think she didn't like them because there was no backing between each step, just open space (think spiral staircase). The master bed was extremely comfy - not too soft and not too firm. The balconies were a great place to relax and feel the breeze any time of day. This house was very well thought out when being built. It really does take full advantage of its location next to the water. It was also nice to have a little fire pit in front of the house along with a picnic table. Everything we needed was provided as far as TP, soap, shampoo, towels, cookware, utensils etc. The one thing I would make note of for near future guests is the condition of the cookware. All of the non stick pots & pans were peeling to the point of being unusable. We made do with that since it was just two of us but it may be an issue if there is a bigger family and they plan on cooking more to save some money on food. This was not a big deal considering how great everything else about the property is.

All in all we had a wonderful time here. We loved every minute of it so much we rarely left the property. We highly recommend this rental for anyone. Peggy was easy to deal with and was quick to take care of any minor issues that came up. We hope that we can rent another property from her at some point down the road. Don't pass up on this stunning property if you have the opportunity to rent it.
