Newly Constructed Modern Waterfront Cottage: 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 9 Sleeps
A 3 mile island located in the middle of the Potomac River, in Southern Maryland is located only 75 minutes from our Nation's Capital, Old Town Alexandria, and Maryland's newest Casino MGM @ National Harbor. IF you MUST take a day trip.
BUT I think you will choose to stay on The Island! Neighbors still come over and say hello (Mr. and Mrs. Pike love my awesome guests)!!
How about a bike ride to the Scuttlebutts, the local gathering hole! Or a ride to the park after you stop and get an ice cream at Bobs Market, Cobb Island Market. y Or, you can simply sit back, cast a line and enjoy watching nature while the kiddos play in the knee deep water.
Cobb Island is known for its old fishing and crabbing cottages, quint atmosphere, a local fisherman hideaway (Jason down the street can hook you up with crabs). Cobb Island is where you simply enjoy being surrounded by friends and family amongst nature!! Don't worry you have internet!
Newly constructed (built by a custom builder) in 2007 with entertaining in mind (caterer and wine lover), CI Wine Cottage provides the modern day necessaries (what I would consider important):
adult and children's games, puzzles, grill and grilling tools, kayak and 3 person canoe, a 10 person custom built picnic table, outdoor lounging area, a craft table (sea glass not included..... only steps away from finding lots, 300 cookbooks (give or take 100), binoculars, beach chairs, beach towels, fresh herbs to pick, lavish perennial garden with accents of 12 and counting Japanese maples, your own beach combing sandy beach, OK..... If you must check into the reality world.......we do have internet, a flat screen tv, and a selection of classic movies and not so classic.

About Liz Hopkinson
My grandparents had a little vacation cottage on the island back in the 80's. They would travel on the weekends from near by (an hour in 15 minutes) Brentwood MD, just on the District line. As grandchildren, we, the cousins, used to spend time at Cobb. The best days were spent in the water, picking raspberries and making homemade ice-cream, and riding bikes! I spent a lot of time sitting at the picnic table as well, TIME OUT before it was call timeout!! Today, visiting the island is the same, crab cake sandwiches, fighting over the biggest crab in the pot, neighbors waving to each other. YES after 20 years, it is still the same. Always a friendly hello!! But instead of ice cream it is a full meal at one of the 3 restaurants or a simple cookout with a glass of wine or a adult beverage!! You will just have to experience it!!
Liz Hopkinson purchased this House in 2007

A serene waterfront home + a truly thoughtful host = a super weekend!
From booking to directions to thoughtful touches for a superb stay to checkout, Liz is an exceptional host who goes the extra mile for her guests. The pictures don't do justice to this beautifully appointed waterfront home. The furnishings, toiletries, kitchen and other extras (bicycles, kayaks, board games) made this a wonderful getaway, less than 90 minutes from DC. Watching the nesting ospreys, seeing the changing colors and moods of the Potomac, waking up to beautiful sunrises, catching a spectacular moonrise, and walking/cycling around the island made for an unforgettable and restful weekend. Most of all, the host's suggestions, thoughtful touches and super-quick responses to questions elevated our experience. Thank you Liz!!
You are so welcome!!! It’s easy when my guests are awesome!!!!
Spring is such an incredible time in Southern MD on the water. Returning of daffodils and tulips and smelling the spring grass. Then the revisiting of the Osprey!!!!! WOW! I’m so glad you were able to spend the weekend at Cobb!!!
Luxurious accommodations with breathtaking views
This is our second time renting this house on Cobb Island. The house is so beautifully appointed and gorgeously decorated.
The views are simply stunning! We slept with the curtains open every night just so we could/would wake up to the majestic sunrises. They took our breath away each day. Also on this trip the ospreys were busy building their nest in front of the house. Amazing to watch them and listen to them communicate.
I would highly recommend this rental to anyone! Romantically getaway (there is an amazing huge jetted tub in the master that fits 2) family getaway to a girls weekend. This place has it all!!
We can’t wait to return.😊
I’m so glad you returned!! It is awesome to watch the Osprey year after year return to my backyard!! I’m so glad you’re there early in the season to be able to watch them build their nest!!!
And the sunrises.... my Paw Paw used to get up with the sunrises 8 doors down. Have his coffee on the porch... and take a nap!!!! ...YES they’re SO totally worth the trip alone!!
Again, thanks for staying with us again!!!!!!! Happy Sunrise 🌅�
