Welcome to the Freedom Cottage! We hope you will have a wonderful relaxing stay.
Guest access will be provided via a keycode which will be emailed prior to arrival, spare key hanging inside.
Guests will have access to the entire house and grounds (front and rear yard, stretching down to the beach/water).
I won't be there for check-in/out but guests are encouraged to call/text during their stay if any questions arise.
Longer term off season rental available, please contact me to discuss.
Long range water views and amazing sunsets! Please come and enjoy relaxing by the water, a shady back yard with outdoor dining and Adirondack chairs. Find some local Maryland crabs and enjoy a crab-feast on the back porch! Fully renovated in 2015, this is a very comfortable space to relax and unwind.
Spacious master bedroom shares the main level with a nicely appointed kitchen and open floor plan to the living room. Step out to the enclosed back porch for a dining table to enjoy the beautiful views and sunsets. A marble bathtub/shower, private commode and double vanity sink finish out the first floor space.
Upstairs are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds.
Outside there another dining table and chairs for enjoying a meal on the back patio as well as a small fire pit and chairs. Please ensure all fires are out before turning in for the night!
There is a beach and swimming in the Potomac River. The river is 4 miles wide at this location so a very expansive body of water with low boat traffic. The beach does diminish in size at high tide but remains accessible.
Parking out front for up to 2 cars, guests will access the entire home, back yard and beach. Note, the beach is technically neighborhood access so you may see neighbors walking along the shore periodically. The beach is reduced to only a few feet during high tide. There is also a kayak and a paddle board available for your use, at your own risk. You must use the life jackets; you can also consider bringing your own or purchasing one in town if you want to use the kayaks or paddle board.
We do not live in the area but please call, text or email with any concerns during your stay.
Linens and towels are provided in the house but please bring your own beach supplies! House towels should not be used for outdoor activities.
The house is on a well so most guests will want to bring/buy drinking water (grocery store 10 mins away).
The home has central a/c but please remember this was built as a beach cottage, it will not get below 75 degrees inside on very hot days. Keep doors and windows shut to help the system keep up. There is a window unit upstairs to help at night.
In the winter the oil heat is more than sufficient to warm the house.
Please keep clothes and furniture away from the air vents at all times.
- The house is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Most neighbors are full-time or weekend locals. This is not a party house like you'd find at the Eastern Shore. Guests come here to relax, enjoy nature, partake in water sports, fish, cook, play games and share in each others company.
-We are so sorry, we love our four legged friends but dogs are not allowed due to insurance restrictions.
-Children are welcome but please be acutely aware of proximity to the water and be vigilant with supervision.
