Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

The minute you step into our charming cottage you will feel right at home!

Situated on Harness Creek, in a quiet neighborhood, The Yellow Cottage is a great place to "get away from it all".

Recently renovated, our 60+ year old cottage has all of the modern day comforts to make your stay enjoyable. With the original heart pine floors and a huge farm sink in the kitchen, we have retained the feeling of a true waterfront cottage.

A cheerful country kitchen greets you as you enter the front door. If it's just a cup of tea that you want or something more elaborate, the kitchen has it all. Beyond the kitchen is a sunny combination living and dining room. Two oversized comfy chairs face the water in the sitting area where you can read or relax with a glass of wine. With two bedrooms the cottage sleeps four guests in either a queen or full sized bed. A convertible sleep sofa can sleep two more guests.

During the summer months enjoy life on the creek! Bring your fishing rods and cast from the pier or try your hand at catching some local crabs. Rent paddle kayaks or canoes close by at Quiet Water's Park. Visit us during the fall and watch the leaves change across the creek from your Adirondack chair each morning. Or settle in for a cozy winter weekend at the cottage with a good book and some hot chocolate!

The best things come in small packages

On a perfect autumn weekend, we arrived at The Yellow Cottage for nothing more than rest and relaxation. This cottage offers everything one needs. Views, quiet, space, comfy rooms, great location, a charming kitchen and Kayaks!
We live close enough to come back for a winter weekend, or a week in the summer and we will surely do both. The owner has created a perfectly charming home in which you most certainly are made to feel like a very special guest.

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5
In reviewing my experience at the Yellow Cottage, I can honestly say that, in a word, it was perfect! Rhonda was an exceptional hostess, the cottage was spotless, the setting ideal and we completely fell in love with Annapolis! As for restaurants, I highly recommend Mike's, Cafe Normandie, and the Red Red Wine Bar. The Ram's Head Brew Pub is also a can't miss - especially at Happy Hour! The activities we thoroughly enjoyed and recommend include a visit to the Naval Academy, taking a sailing tour on the Woodwind, kayaking on the river and, of course, watching the firefly's dancing at night!

Wonderful Christmas Stay at Yellow Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Three of us stayed at the yellow Cottage over Xmas. The cottage looks really small from the road but is in fact very spacious. The cottage is beautifully furnished and decorated and the beds are really comfortable. There is a great TV and excellent Wi-Fi. We felt cozy and warm and had a great time preparing our Christmas day dinner in the kitchen. It was a very easy drive into Annapolis in less than 10 minutes. Even the weather was kind to us and we look forward to returning in the summer when we can really enjoy the access to the water and the beautiful surrounding area

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
The yellow cottage was truly a great place to stay. We came in October, and the weather was perfect. The cottage was clean and fresh, exactly like the pictures. We had a very lovely writer's retreat with 7 of us (it's extra for more than 6). We def got a lot of writing done! And Rhonda was very easy to get in touch with. She was reachable before the trip and during, very easy going and accommodating. We enjoyed ourselves and hope to return!

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was the best place to stay for a relaxing, fun-filled vacation. The cottage was charming, well-maintained, extremely clean and the hospitality was excellent. It was a steal in price for all that was available and the number of people that we had staying. We will recommend it to family and friends. We are also hoping to get back there for some more great times at The Yellow Cottage!

The Yellow Cottage

Our recent stay at "The Yellow Cottage" was an awesome experience. We spent a week there while our son was at the Navy Academy. Surprisingly bigger than the photos show. Very homey and the decor was very tastefully done, bright colors and cheerful. We arrived to fresh cut flowers on the table and a fresh fruit bowl on the kitchen table. We really enjoyed all the flowers around the grounds and the dock at the creek. Had my morning Coffee outside on the dock and enjoyed evenings sitting by the water. It was serene and peaceful. Downtown and the Naval Academy is only minutes away and Rhonda was so helpful planning our trips. She was always available for any questions or a friendly chat. There were Kayaks available to us and you can Fish off the dock. After sightseeing busy Washington D.C. for the day coming back to the cottage to its beauty and peacefulness was very welcoming and relaxing! We will definitely return to this place and we highly recommend it to anyone. Definitely 5 stars........
