About the property

7 Bedrooms, 6 Baths (Sleeps up to 20)

Located on the shores of historic St. George Island (est.1638) in southern Maryland (no Chesapeake Bay Bridge to cross!), this 6,500 sq. ft. custom-built home is situated on 6+ wooded acres with expansive views of the Potomac River – the perfect retreat for multi-family reunions/vacations, and business conferences.

While enjoying your morning coffee, watch the watermen in their Chesapeake Bay wooden work-boats as they haul in their catch of Maryland blue crabs or oysters, just off shore. Have the desire to also be on the water? Bring your boat! Boat lift at the end of your pier is set for approximately 21 ft boat, weighing less than 7,000 lbs.

Stroll up and down your own private sandy beach (almost 2 football fields long) - ideal for collecting lots of sea glass, sun-bathing, swimming, tubing (1 provided), floating (many floats provided), kayaking (2 provided), picnicking (picnic table for 8 on your private pier), and long romantic walks.

Later, walk onto your private pier for some fishing and crabbing (rods & traps provided). Later in the day, you may want to feast on your catch of crabs (crab steamer provided), perch, spot, and/or flounder on the waterfront porch that seats 20. This is when you’ll see many of the birds that inhabit St. George Island: Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, Brown Pelicans, Swans, Ospreys (a pair are nesting right off shore), Hummingbirds, Bluebirds, Great Egrets, Barn Owls, Mallards, and Loons. Almost 6 acres of the estate is wooded and home to fox, deer, chipmunks, rabbits, and turtles.

To work off some of your scrumptious meal, there are tons of outdoor games (cornhole, bocce, badminton, volleyball, basketball, etc.) to play (all provided). Jump on your bike (2 provided) if you care to explore the rest of St. George Island.

Want to get off the island for a while? Jump in your car and visit historic St. Mary's City St. (the original capital of Maryland and host of the River Concert Series), Sotterley Plantation, Calvert Marine Museum, five (5) lighthouses, historic barns, Amish communities, Maryland International Raceway, cruise to historic Smith Island, golf courses, deep sea fishing tours, as well as other historical sites, museums, movies, restaurants, shopping, etc. that southern Maryland has to offer. Want to go a bit further? Washington DC, Annapolis, and Baltimore are all about 2 hours away. You’ll find a brochure display in the laundry room, with over 40 destinations for you to pick from.

Once you’re back on the island, you’ll be there just in time to enjoy the most spectacular sunset you can imagine. After dark, light a fire in the fire pit (wood provided), located on the upper beach (yes, you have 2 beaches!) and roast marshmallows (skewers provided) or, make them into smores. When it’s completely dark you’ll see an astonishing number of stars. Spend hours star gazing with the naked eye or binoculars (3 provided). Before putting your head on your pillow, open the window and fall asleep to the sound of the waves gently breaking on the sandy beach. If you should wake up, chances are you’ll see the moon and its light reflecting off the river.

After you read the reviews other vacationers have posted on this site regarding their stay on St. George Island, we hope you'll come visit with us. Once you've slept on an island you’ll never quite be the same!

We will be coming back next year!

  • 5 of 5

Our 4 generational family, consisting of 13 adults and 6 children, vacation every year together for the past 15 years. We've been to different beaches in New Jersey, Maryland, and Outer Banks. We all agree that this trip ranks up there as one of the BEST vacations we've had. No stress, beautiful setting, well equipped was seriously perfect. Make sure you read all that is provided for you...this house literally has it ALL. We were able to pack so much lighter!

We spent so much time outside playing yard games, relaxing on the dock, kayaking and just floating in the water. Cooking for a large family was a breeze thanks to the huge kitchen and all the amenities. The 40 cup coffee maker was amazing! We enjoyed playing card games inside one night while it stormed outside.

Thank you Rick for your hospitality. You made us feel so welcome and at home. We will be back next year for sure!!!!

outstanding experience

  • 5 of 5

It all starts with the property owner, Rick was incredible from our 1st connection to our last.

The property was well appointed and included all the possible amenities you could imagine. Rick put all the information you needed in easy to use binders so there was no searching for anything. We got right to making memories.

The location was perfect for our dream family vacation, plenty of activities for our large group to join in on. Plenty of space for our large extended family to reconnect and share stories and remembrances.

If you want to experience the Chesapeake Bay, Rick has the connections to get you all experiences you could ask for.

Before we left our group was already planning our return.

Paradise on the Mainland

  • 5 of 5

I've rented many vacation homes throughout the years and never have I stayed in a place like this. The owner puts so much thought and care into every aspect of your stay. If he doesn't have it you don't need it. There is everything down to the current supermarket circulars available. So sit back open your favorite drink and enjoy the views

Homey spot for retreats & gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

From the luxurious home, to the view, to the hospitality--floored. Rick is a in-tuned host, communicates well, and cares down to the finest details. He's easy going and willing to be flexible with requests. A great space to use for weekend retreats or reunions, with plenty of space to circle up and converse. Overall, a very homey feel, clean, and extremely peaceful. After spending hours in sessions, you could walk the grounds, the beach, and the pier to relax and unwind. He also had some outdoor games to use as well, and a fire pit for the evening.

We took a van full of teenagers for a leader retreat & they soaked up every second! Year two for us & we will definitely be back.
