Fun Family-Friendly Chesapeake Waterfront Cottage
This three bedroom/two bath cottage is just the spot for a get-away with groups, multiple couples, or your entire family! Lots of open space and very close to the water on our two acre country-like waterfront mini-resort. We have now had a five years of amazingly fun, relaxed, connected, and memorable times for guests of this solid little yellow stucco Cottage.
Sleeping arrangements: One waterfront bedroom has a queen-sized bed, a second waterview bedroom has a full-sized bed. These two share a bath just outside their doors. The third less-waterview bedroom is a bit separate from the others and has a queen-sized bed and its own small ensuite bath and with cool tile and fixtures (shower, no tub). Finally, there is an L-shaped Ikea couch that easily becomes a queen-sized bed or huge chaise lounge, allowing the Cottage to sleep up to eight. There is a charming main bath with tub/shower. Has washer/dryer, BBQ, plenty of lawn furniture, and well-equipped full galley kitchen. Complete with upclose sunset view across the water and wood-burning fireplace insert--it's all right here. Dogs permitted with a fee and deposit.
The Flat is a light, modern, open studio loft with bay-view window seat, and creek-view skylights. Completely private from our house downstairs, it has its own separate entrance on the water side of the house. Luxurious marble bath with deep freestanding tub and large European shower. Leather couch, writing desk, well-appointed granite wet bar/kitchen with microwave and refrigerator/ freezer, bar- height table. Queen bed that everyone loves, Wireless internet, flat screen TV/DVD player, HDMI cable for Netflix, I-Pod doc. Dogs not permitted.
New, stand-alone Carriage House studio is a perfect country “unplugged” retreat near the water for writers, artists, couples. A simple quiet get-away; like luxury camping (“Glamping”), since bathroom is not onsite. Writing desk, dining table, inviting bed, electric fireplace, comfy chair, outdoor hot shower. While it is not waterfront and does not share the waterfront yards with other accommodations, it has a view of the meadow and woods, and access to outdoor hot tub, pier, kayaks, other shared amenites. Sweet!
This is the owners' private home. It is open at certain times of the year when Shawn is away or stays in the Carriage House to write. It is the downstairs part of the main house at Light Landing (the first floor of the house with The Flat above as a completely separate apartment). It has gorgeous water views, a huge screened porch, a great room, a small office and laundry room. Large dining table for formal dining, fully-equipped kitchen and outdoor bbq grill. Sleeps 4 (but can go up to 6): One double bed; one single bed with another single mattress on the floor if desired; one queen L-shaped Ikea sleeper couch in the living room. Dogs permitted with a fee and deposit.
Nestled further from the water on our two country-like acres, this adorable stand-alone studio camper is just the spot for a quiet getaway for one or two, or for a small family with a small child or two. It can also be a great additional living space for family or friends of guests staying in our Flat, Cottage, Digs, or Carriage House! This accommodation has a distant view of the water beyond a sweet field flanked by trees.
