  • Like Going to Grandma's House


    We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at this cozy house, a little piece of history on the Patuxent River with serene water views. The connected rooms, bed configurations (and foosball table!) upstairs were a good set up for family with children; grandparents were able to have more privacy on the main floor. The house is old but we like that. It is clearly well-loved, and has much more character than most newer, sleeker properties. For one, I have certainly never stayed in a rental house with a real player piano. (We did have to make an effort to keep the kids from playing with that fragile antique!) We loved our visit and hope to have occasion to return.

  • Perfect Private Peninsula


    We had a great stay during Thanksgiving, enjoying the private waterfront yard, and close proximity to food and activities. We stayed with our pup who loved the yard and being able to explore the dock and kayak in the river. The kitchen worked great for cooking our Thanksgiving meal, and the rustic charm interior made the home feel cozy and warm for the holiday. We can’t wait to return in the future!

    Quitesential bay vacation. The house is old and loaded with character. As a person that has been visiting the Pax river area since the early 70's, this brought back many childhood memories.

    Great location and amenities. Could use some updating.Dock and waterfront were pretty. Great we could have our dogs there. House was dated, but clean and everything worked.

  • Fantastic property and house!


    Great stay, beautiful house, yard and porch. Plenty to do, could have spent the whole trip at the house! We loved the player piano but please be careful with the rolls, a lot had rips and are very delicate! Beautiful area to kayak and a nice point to wave at your family as they paddle away. My husband took his canoe from the house and met us at Myrtle Point beach! Caught tons of perch.Notes: You have to walk through the foosball bedroom to get to the queen w/ twin bedroom. Also note that all three upstairs bedrooms have to share the first floor bathroom right at the bottom of the stairs. Not an issue for us!This house shares the dock/boats with another rental house. Was a bummer when we planned to go kayking and they had taken all the kayaks.Watch out for traffic going over the solomon bridge. I think this was unusual but it took us 30 minutes to get to the house from the main intersection in California. But very minor notes on what I would consider a perfect weekend get away!
