About the property

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.

Jaw droppingly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. The interior is clean up to date and luxurious. The kitchen is state of the art. There are no words for master suite. And, what surrounds you, calms you immediately.

BEAUTIFUL house on quiet and peaceful spot on the bay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Kentigern and it was beautiful. The weather was very gray but it was still a gorgeous view out the many many windows of the house. The house itself is comfortable and warm and has a great fireplace and plenty of room for many guests. My only quibble would be that the doors to the bedrooms are not solid wood (they're slatted) so it can be loud if one is trying to sleep. But other than that, perfect stay!

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 ;-)
