We stayed in this house over my daughter's wedding weekend. It was so perfect. Three generations all totally comfortable. Tons of space, porches on every level, great views of the water. Home is beautifully equipped, from kitchen to kayaks. We had a bridal luncheon there as well as make up and hair for all the wedding party the day of the wedding. I would rent again anytimeAmanda M.

A wonderful place for family celebrations
Of all the rentals we've booked, this is by far the most superior. The owner, Debbie takes great care and pride in this home and her attention to detail is incredible. She is so accommodating and friendly making everything easy. The house is so comfortable , spacious, clean and most of all a relaxing environment for all to enjoy. This was a family get together for four generations (12 people in all) with everyone coming from Boston to Florida. The location is fantastic being 30 min from BWI and only 10 minutes from Annapolis. Everyone loved the house, and with so many activities available there was fun for all. The grounds are professionally maintained with plenty of peaceful locations to sit. The kids loved the creek and much time was spent on the Stand Up Paddle Boards and Kayaks. We had several family meals on the spacious decks and plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen is spotless and well equipped to handle family meals. We even made home made Ice Cream! Another great aspect is the location of the home to the Chesapeake Bay which you can see from the house. As I came by boat, it was only a short ride to some of the best fishing grounds on the Bay. While the creek is too shallow to dock , I was able to keep the boat around the corner ( 2min away) at a neighbor's house that we had rented last year. Overall, a wonderful experience was had by everyone!Zachary J.

Warm and inviting retreat
We were looking for a place to stay in Annapolis in order to visit with our Midshipman and extended family in the area. The pictures on the website do it justice. It is open and warm and wonderful for families big and small! There is room to spread out with beautiful bathrooms for each bedroom. The bedroom off the kitchen was perfect for our elderly mother because she didn't have to use the stairs and it was equipt with handicapped bars in the shower. The backyard is beautiful. We were there in the fall and we had bikes to use, but with the cozy fireplace we chose to sit and read. I am an avid baker and the kitchen had everything I needed to cook for my large family. It really exceeded our expectations. I felt as if I was home. It was truly a great place!! We have already planned our get together for next year! (PS. Debbie knew that we were without a car one day she picked up dinner that we ordered and brought it to us!) She will go beyond the call! Plus, she's a lab lover, so I knew she was good person:)Paula

Beautiful property with lots of charm
We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful property. It served as the meeting point for a very large family reunion. There was plenty of room for our family to stay (including 6 children under the age of 6-with lots of separate quiet rooms for differing nap times). We loved the gorgeous backyard with the access to water and the kayaks and paddleboards. Everyone in the family really enjoyed the morning and evening kayak trips. We will definitely return to this wonderful home in the future!Anna M.
