Property type house

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10)

'Fredelig sted'(peaceful place) is patterned after a Norwegian cottage with curved roof on the outside and knotty pine and birch wood inside.

The bright panoramic view of the Chesapeake from the great room, master bedroom or deck elicits a relaxed, peaceful mood as soon as you arrive. Watch the seagulls or osprey play in the breeze or the dozens of sailboats in the distance while you are curled up on a deck chair in the shade of a huge oak tree. Bring a book or read one from the collection in the book case.

When you are hungry, light the charcoal grill, or the oven, or travel a few minutes to Skipper's Pier or any of the fine restaurants along the river or the bay. Even more restaurants are in nearby Annapolis, just 30 minutes away.

The children or adults can play croquet, badminton or ride the swing in the fenced back yard. Or they can wade or swim in the Bay right in front of the house.

Annapolis has theaters, playhouse, symphony, pirate ship for kids, sight-seeing, crab cruises. Winery tours and tasting and nature trails are nearby including a stand of huge bald cypress trees with native birds. Pier and boat launch 5 minutes away.

Beautiful, peaceful, child friendly

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights, and wished we could have stayed for four weeks! It feels like home, not so fancy you can't relax, but beautiful, roomy, well-equipped, and with interesting personal touches. We all enjoyed playing in the bay (though there is no beach, the water is shallow and warm and the bottom is easy on the feet), playing frisbee, lawn darts, and checkers when it rained. We even caught a couple of blue crabs. The Sailing Academy is a couple miles away and Dad and the boys loved that! Mom's favorite place was the chase lounge in master bedroom in front of the bay window. Definitely want to come back! Thanks for opening your home to us.

We did have the privilege to spend 3 nights over New Year's eve in Bob's house. It has been great! Enough space for 10 persons, a lot of love in many details in the house, everything in good shape. We really liked it and recommend to to spend time in this property. Also Bob has been very responsive and came back to our questions quickly. All good!!

Great house in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful Chesapeake Bay home. The house is spacious and comfortable, and the waterfront setting couldn't be more beautiful. The property was perfect for our family, which included my 75-year-old mother, our 2-year-old, and 5-month-old. Our toddler was in heaven, running around on the lawn by the water and sleeping in a "big kid's bed" in the wonderful kids' room (which has two twin beds plus a bunk bed). The living room/dining room and (very large) master suite both have stunning views. A fantastic home for a kid-and-senior-friendly vacation.

Family Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Little House sandwiched between a wedding and a funeral-two extremes of emotions. The house offered a wonderfully peaceful transition for us. It was sweet, quaint, and comfortable and offered us a perfectly beautiful place to spend quality family time. Thank you for that tranquility! I would stay again in a heartbeat.
