About ann holladay

We built this home in 1990 and have added on a couple of times in the last 8 years.Our family, three sons and many friends have loved this special spot for weekends and summers for over 20 years now:many wonderful memories have been created catching crabs,boating,biking and long walks along private country roads.simply watching the most spectacular sunsets is reason enough to come!

Why ann holladay chose Chesapeake Bay

my husband grew up in Baltimore and spent summers around the chesapeake,so after getting married in 1979,we started visiting this well familiar area and fell in love with this particular spot.We loved the expansive views over Broad Creek with the most amazing sunsets night after night.We have enjoyed many family and individual bike outings,often to Oxford via the Bellevue ferry and lunch,dinner and shopping is a short distance away,with many lovely offerings no matter what direction you go.

What makes this apartment unique

we built our home around the sensational views of expansive water and huge horizons showcasing the most incredible sunsets throughout the year.One can sit and simply look at the glistening water,the expansive starry sky,the ospreys building their nest while listening to the songs of the various birds and other wildlife.It's wonderful to be away but yet so close to excellent restaurants and local tourist attractions ;to have the choice of going out or staying in and grilling and eating in the gazebo and then watching a movie(wonderful assortment provided!)and ending the night under the stars!Did I mention the incredible sunsets??????:)

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

Ann's house is a cut above the rest. We travel often and prefer to rent houses, and her property is well appointed, immaculately maintained and has all the amenities for a great stay. Lastly, Ann herself is just a wonderful person- warm, caring and very welcoming. We loved being her guests and plan to visit her soon!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This well-appointed cottage had everything we needed for a perfect getaway. We (two couples) enjoyed this relaxing country cottage so well that we plan to return next year. Ann, the owner of the house that adjoins the cottage, was a gracious host and provided us with great tips on how to get the most out of our visit. St. Michaels is only a 15 minute country drive away. If a perfect morning view to go with your coffee plus the most spectacular sunsets in the evening are your thing, then you will love this cottage on the water.

Amazing home and location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a weekend in Ann's guest house. What a wonderful host she was with a beautiful home and fantastic location. Even a rain filled weekend couldn't dampen our spirits while enjoying the beautiful view of the Chesapeake. The accommodations were perfect for our group of 2 couples and we cannot wait to return. The house has everything you would want or need while on vacation. We launched kayaks and fished right from the dock. It's an easy trip into St. Michael's when you need more than a beautiful view and peaceful location.

Ann was super to work with before and during our stay. She is so quick to respond and had all the information we needed in advance. Believe every review written here as they are spot on.

Thank you Ann for a wonderful weekend!!

Beautiful cottage on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxing weekend at the cottage. From the time we booked until after we left Ann made us feel welcome and communicated well.

The 2BR cottage itself was perfect for two couples. Connected to a large beautiful home via breezeway the cottage had separate entrances and felt private. The decor is that of a upscale english cottage and is very well maintained and clean.

Ann obviously thinks of every little detail and we wanted for nothing during the stay. She had the cottage very well appointed and supplied for all the things we might need for a short stay.

We arrived to delicious banana bread and she personally checked in to introduce herself and welcome us to the cottage. She also made the grounds available to us from the dock, canoes/kayaks/bikes (though we didn't use them). We enjoyed the property immensely from cocktails in comfy chairs overlooking the beautiful bay and great sunsets to the solitude of watching the stars on the dock after the sun went down.

A great stay.

Perfect getaway! Amazing guesthouse!

  • 5 of 5

"Charming English Country Apartment" does not give this this property justice. I stayed in this home for 3 days with a small group of friends over the 4th of July weekend and could not have better things to say. The house (large guesthouse) was clean, comfortable, and in top condition. Ann was the perfect host -- making sure the house was stocked with linens, towels, and all kitchen supplies. The house is attached to the main house by way of a little gallery/enclosed walkway, but there is definitely a sense of privacy and seclusion. We enjoyed grilling each night and relaxing on the lawn and dock watching incredible sunsets. During the days, we took advantage of the kayaks, lawn toys and bikes that were available to us. The location is ideal, as it's close enough to town for a quick grocery shop or coffee run, but far enough to get the real country-side feel. In all, there was not one complaint from our group -- we all had the best little trip and recommend this property very highly. 5+ stars for sure! Thank you, Ann!!

Amazing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at Ann's cottage! It was great escape from DC. Ann's home is beautiful but the view is picture perfect. We started the day with coffee overlooking the water in the Adirondack chairs and finished with a beautiful sunset. There were tons of lawn games, kayaks, and plenty to do! It was only a short drive into town which was very enjoyable but we couldn't wait to get back to the house! We can't wait to plan our next trip! Thank you Ann for being the best host!
