Annapolis Area Chesapeake Bay Waterfront Cottage

Wells Cottage - This Chesapeake Bay get-away 5 - 10 minutes from Annapolis was built as a summer cottage by a millionaire in the thirties and retains a historical feeling with large wood beam ceilings in the living and dining rooms and a huge stone fireplace. Relive times past on the Chesapeake shore but also have great access to Annapolis, Baltimore, Washington DC, and BWI Airport.

This NON-Smoking / NO Pets home has a massive, screened-in porch facing due east overlooking beautiful Dividing Creek. What a view! The overlooking porch and hot tub offer a view to die for and also allows parents a vantage point from which to watch the kids while they're playing in the water. There is a 6 MPH speed limit for boats at all times on Dividing Creek so kids and adults can feel safe floating and goofing around out in the creek.

Plenty of room for the kids in this 3200 square foot house which has been fully insulated and HVAC is all new. The four ton central air along with the ceiling fans insure cool summer days and cozy nights. The living room sports an impressive fireplace and the downstairs playroom is complete with a (natural gas) wood burning stove, flat screen HDTV DVD / a selection of some movies, stereo, a foos ball table, and a ping pong table. The house has four bedrooms; master with a queen bed, another has a queen bed, one has a double bed, and the fourth has a twin with a roll-out pop-up twin trundel. Also extra mattresses in the basement. Wireless internet inside and out! (2 zones).

The location and natural beauty of this location is unrivaled and was valued by Indians as well. Walk down the rock steps to one of the most desirable, wide, deep water and weather protected creeks on the Chesapeake Bay. Blue Herons, Ducks, and Canadian Geese are your neighbors. Steamed crabs, corn-on-the-cob, and a cold brew is your celebration. Crab and fish right off the pier. Bring your fishing rods or use the rods / crab traps provided!

You will thoroughly enjoy a relaxing stay at our cottage. We think this is one of the most scenic places on earth. that's why we live only two doors down!
