Welcome to The Waterside Cottage,
Spacious, airy and relaxing 2 bedroom cottage on Harness Creek, just 5
minutes to the Naval Academy and 30 minutes to DC or Baltimore. The
Waterside Cottage is ideally situated to unwind from urban stress, yet
close enough to enjoy the great galleries, memorials and bountiful
history in the region. Or, you could just lounge around reading books,
playing board games and rejuvenate in the tranquility.
Relax on the patio in adirondack chairs, sipping your morning coffee
or enjoying a sunset glass of wine, watching the great heron that
lives here or the foxes across the creek that play at the waters edge.
This is a very quiet, rural neighborhood 3 miles and 5 minutes from
historic Annapolis. There is even a vineyard around the corner.
Harness Creek Rd was described by Washingtonian Magazine as one of
Maryland's "Streets of Gold". We agree ... we live next door!
The Cottage has hardwood floors and is fully furnished in a
comfortable "Cottage Living" style. Sleep in the luxurious comfort of
high-thread count linens, down pillows and duvets. Bathe with handmade
soaps by a local purveyor and soft organic towels. There are also
beach towels for those dips in the creek. The kitchen is fully-stocked
with all number of gadgets, perfect for your crab feast, that
Chesapeake picnic or a romantic dinner.
Over the years, the Cottage has had a fair share of upgrades yet she
still retains the elusive character of yesteryear. Come ... unwind ...
melt into cozy, lazy days.
We had a lovely time here - thank you for all you did to make our stay comfortable. The wildlife was especially wonderful to watch and listen to. I loved the blue heron who seems to be your mascot. Be well, and we hope you enjoy what's left of the summer. Julia
