“Amazing Vacation Home”
Reviewed 9 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We rented the house over a long weekend with 10 adults and 3 babies. We also rented the pontoon boat.

The house is as large, well stocked, and amazingly located as the listing leads you to believe it is. The Kitchen, in particular, is amazing.

Debbie, the owner, was a pleasure to work with. She was very friendly, easy to talk to, and eager to help ensure our vacation was the best it could be. We called several times to clarify things, and she was always accessible and helpful.

No internet is provided at the house, but that didn't impact our enjoyment.

Overall, this home was more than we expected and a large part of why we were thrilled with our vacation.

“Perfect place for our large family of varied ages and interests.”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

House was clean and exactly as advertised, or better. In fact, the photos did not do it justice! The large spacious rooms were perfect for just hanging out together in our down time. Lovely dock for fishing and quiet time. Our 3yr old caught her 1st fish there! Our whole family, including college and teen age kids, enjoyed laying out on the dock late into the night counting stars as it was so lovely and peaceful there. We thoroughly enjoyed cruising over to Shark Island on the pontoon for shark teeth, fossils, and photos! We visited Stratford Hall (Lee's place), Washington's birthplace, and toured historical St. Mary's City. Husband did historical research on ancestors in Westmoreland County and Leonardtown. Took a brief drive into Montross to eat at Angelo's a couple times and also stopped by the town coffee house. The locals were all extremely friendly. This owner was wonderful to work with. As a musical family, our only complaint was not having a grand piano to play in the beautiful front room on the river! Just kidding! This house had everything we could possibly need, and was perfect for our week away from home!

Thank you for your review. Most of all your family enjoyed their trip. I am so happy your daughter caught her first fish on our pier. We are so happy to share our Happy Place with others to enjoy. Please let your friend know about our house so maybe they will rent one day.

“Best Vacation in Years!”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I am so thrilled I had the ability to rent such an amazing vacation rental for my Early summer getaway. The house is fantastic, its everything you could imagine.
From the moment we arrived we felt right at home. The house was spotless, beautiful views, comfortable beds and a fantastic kitchen (everything you could possibly need). Renting the Jet skis and Pontoon boat was affordable and well worth it. The trip to shark tooth island was a nice sight seeing cruise and we were able to find a good amount of sharks teeth in a very short period of time. The owner of the house made the trip a breeze. I would highly recommend anyone with kids a family gathering or even a romantic weekend getaway this would be the place to stay. Thank you again for opening your home and allowing us to enjoy it! We will be back!

“Celebrating our mom's 70th birthday. Relax, unwind, enjoy nature.”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We rented this home to celebrate our mom's 70th birthday. In her words, "this is the best vacation we've taken". Everyone had a great time. There was space to spread out and areas to get together. It would've been nice to have a table large enough for everyone to sit together to eat but I know the owner is already working on that. Even still, the ones that sat at bar stools in the kitchen were close enough to be involved in conversation. The house is fully stocked with almost everything you could possibly need or want. I highly recommend renting the pontoon boat at least one day to go to Shark Island. The water is great for wading or swimming there and everyone in our group, aged 2-72 had fun searching for and finding shark teeth. The owner is very easy to deal with and just wants everyone to have a good time on vacation and feel the same relaxation that she feels when she's there.
