Overview

About the property

Newly Constructed Modern Waterfront Cottage: 3 + Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 9 Sleeps

Located 75 minutes from our Nation's Capital, Old Town Alexandria, and Maryland's newest Casino MGM @ National Harbor (another experience in it self), Cobb Island, is so close, but a world away. Neighbors still come over and say hello, you can ride the bikes to the island park or just ride around the 3 mile island, and get ice cream at the local market. Or, you can simply sit back and enjoy watching nature and beach combing.

Known for its old fishing and crabbing cottages, quint atmosphere, local fisherman hideaway, Cobb Island is where you simply enjoy being surrounded by nature!! CI Wine Country Cottage fits right in, but with today's modern touches.

Newly constructed (built by a custom builder) in 2007 with entertaining in mind (caterer and wine lover), CI Wine Cottage provides the modern day necessaries (what I would consider important): adult and children's games, puzzles, grill and grilling tools, kayak and 3 person canoe, a 10 person custom built picnic table, outdoor lounging area, a craft table (sea glass not included..... only steps away from finding lots, 300 cookbooks (give or take 100), binoculars, beach chairs, beach towels, fresh herbs to pick, lavish perennial garden with accents of 12 and counting Japanese maples, your own beach combing sandy beach, OK..... If you must check into the reality world.......we do have internet, a flat screen tv, and a selection of classic movies and not so classic.

About Liz Hopkinson

My grandparents had a little vacation cottage on the island back in the 80's. They would travel on the weekends from near by (an hour in 15 minutes) Brentwood MD, just on the District line.

As grandchildren, we, the cousins, used to spend time at Cobb. The best days were spent in the water, picking raspberries and making homemade ice-cream, and riding bikes! I spent a lot of time sitting at the picnic table as well, TIME OUT before it was call timeout!!

Today, visiting the island is the same, crab cake sandwiches, fighting over the biggest crab in the pot, neighbors waving to each other. YES after 20 years, it is still the same.

Always a friendly hello!! But instead of ice cream it is a full meal at one of the 3 restaurants or a simple cookout with a glass of wine or a adult beverage!!

You will just have to experience it!!

Liz Hopkinson purchased this house in 2007

Why Liz Hopkinson chose Chesapeake Bay

My home is your home without the responsibilities! I enjoy entertaining, families, and friends at Cobb as well as the serenity! Yesteryears with todays amenities.

What makes this house unique

I believe in the simpler ways of life, yet I need the comforts of the modern world around me!! Fine linens, fully stocked kitchen, a cup of tea, a fishing pole, and a glass of wine, yes a Keurig, for you coffee drinkers, while enjoying the views of the water and listening to waves at night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the pleasure of renting ___house on Cobb Island. We are 7 women who get together every year in June to slow down, walk, bike, hang out on the beach, drink and eat too much! The house was perfect for our needs. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped; the living space delightful including a large deck overlooking the river with a huge picnic table. The beach is large and fairly long with a great view for watching the sunset. The beds and linens are lovely--all in all it was a great place to spend our long weekend. We have rented the house for next summer as well, adding a day. I highly recommend this very clean, modern and comfortable house on the water.

Overall property very nice; beautiful outdoor area and views.

  • 4 of 5

We only used the house for sleeping (overflow). The adults who used the house for this purpose said it was good. I would recommend the house for anyone looking for a nice place to stay on Cobb Island.

A PIECE OF HEAVEN!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Liz's place and it was above and beyond what we hoped for! You are maybe 20 ft from the water - so you wake to the waves, have coffee on your own pier, and push a "pause" button on your life! We had such great quality time with our kids and they loved the private beach, boats, and the luxury accommodations! We have stayed in 5 star hotels that were not as nice as this gem! My only suggestion would be if the bikes could use a tune up - they were a great activity, but we pumped up the wheels a bit. My kids are already asking if we can go back next year!! Also, we have rented houses in the past, and Liz was a doll to work with - the whole process was easy and smooth! After seeing her kitchen and cookbooks - I want to go to her for Thanksgiving!!!!:)
