About the Owner

My grandparents had a little vacation cottage on the island. They lived in Brentwood, just across the DC border. 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 sat on the picnic table quite often, before time-out was called time out!! Today, visiting the neighbors, after 20 years, is still the same. Always a friendly hello!! But instead of ice cream it is a full meal or a simple glass of wine!!

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.

Beautiful & Spacious

  • 5 of 5

The absolute best home for a multi-family stay. At first I was worried about space for the adults/ kids. We ended up having more than enough room. One night we ended up camping out in the master bedroom, with the kids on the large couch! We had a blast and could not have had a better stay. There were also THREE bathrooms. I couldn't have asked for better! Also, plenty of blankets / pillows.

Liz has the house well equipped with (especially the kitchen)! I spent my mornings enjoying coffee on the back porch! She has a keurig which made it THAT much simpler to enjoy! We didn't use it but the house also had tons of movies, and some video games! We brought our own games to play and had a blast enjoying them together.

I will definitely be staying again. The house was tastefully decorated too! I enjoyed the quirks of the home and the wine bottle corks everywhere. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Pictures don't do it justice!

This home is beautiful! Liz is a gracious host with a property to be proud of. The home is even more gorgeous than in the photos. This waterfront property can be enjoyed all year long. We had so much fun exploring this cute town and using the home to its potential. We were already looking at dates before we even left to ask about in the near future. Can't wait to go back!

Fantastic place for a family or a few couples to get away

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, relaxing house perfectly situated on the water with its own very private, quiet stretch of shore. Loads of shells on the beach for the kids to collect and enjoy. The water was pleasant for a swim (at least in August), and a near-constant breeze kept the bugs down and kept us cool in the summer heat. Crab pots on the pier - we actually caught three nice crabs, two of edible size! Canoes, kayaks, and everything else you need to enjoy a great couple of days relaxing and playing. Great a/c inside; a kitchen that can handle anything you throw at it; movies and games for the family on the great big tv for the evening; comfy beds and linens; and multiple well-appointed bathrooms. What can I say? Great house that we hope to visit again!

Perfect in so many ways

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this beautiful house don't do it justice. We opened the door and we all said "Wow". As we explored the house and the water front, we couldn't have been happier. The entire back of the house has windows that allow you to enjoy the water views while staying in the icy cool house on a few days that were very hot out. We grilled and ate outside a few nights. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook. We were only 80 minutes from Washington DC and had a great visit there. Thanks Liz for allowing us to use your island home for our vacation.

This place has a BEAUTIFULLY landscaped backyard with huge deck nestled on a protected wetlands that makes you feel as if you have your own private island. Gorgeous 180° views of the Potomac River, this 4 BR house has a gourmet chef's kitchen and modern amenities. I felt completely at home and really enjoyed listening to the tides and hanging out on the sunny deck soaking it all in.

For people that do Birding you can see Bald Eagles, Swans, Herons, Egrets, Ospreys, Woodpecks, Bluebirds & Pelicans!

We had an amazing time! Everyone caught lots fish! I watched the sunrise over the water from the master each AM & then took a shower in the contemporary rainfall shower/sauna... I could get used to this!

A great escape

  • 5 of 5

I have been to this property numerous times with my children and always love it.

It sits right on the water, has fantastic views and it's just a very relaxing place.

The home is well appointed it has a very large kitchen full of anything you need for cooking dinner. It has beautiful bedrooms with great views of the water. The property has several kayaks and fishing rods for those that like to fish. I go there just to get away it feels like a peaceful step back in time. Liz provides bicycles to ride around the island which we always enjoy. I will be back

I like to think of vacationing on Cobb at our house as remembering the simplistic times....Puzzles, crabbing, bike riding, reading books, family. Dinner together... Just enjoying your family and friends!!! So thank you so much for the review and since it is signed Annamous, I can't personality thank you by name.
