Scientists' Cliffs--The oldest community in Calvert County is proud to be the example of a successful volunteer community by UMDCP because we are totally self-sufficient and sustainable. Step back in time when nature abounded. It still does here! Community House Kid activities daily. Weekend Ice Cream Socials and Concerts in the Park. Bonfires. A stocked lake. Crab Feasts and Plays. A roomy pool. All within a few minutes' walk. Peaceful but with the sounds of songbirds. Only the night time light of the stars.
The most romantic beach in MD bar none. Our drinking water is from 2 aquifers so not only does it taste good, it is healthy mineral abundant. The beach, deck or living room are the perfect settings for yoga too. Yoga class every Friday AM during the summer on tennis court. Pool is summer only.
Self-sufficient community is used as the University of MD example of Perfect Community Living with Volunteers as its source. Unforgettable and unimaginable an hour away from Washington, DC.
you will come back---I promise!

Retired science teacher who has circumnavigated 24 countries about the world by sailboat. Avid reef diver and sailor. Enjoys fossil hunting the beach. Favorite places were French Polynesia, Argentina, Nova Scotia, Vanuatu, Tonga, Fiji, New Zealand, Malaysia, Palau, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand. I now race hot smaller yachts in Solomons on Wednesdays. I live on the premises and love to cook foreign specialties in Thai, Indian, French, Southern MD and Italian cuisine. Even though I am a serious yacht and dinghy racer, I emphasize relaxation for my guests. I can provide cooking lessons, massage, yoga, stretching, breathing and meditation techniques. I also provide a double ocean kayak which will accommodate a young child as well. Life preservers are provided. I also have a younger partner, Mark Gyorgy, who is the race governor for Southern Maryland sailing Association, who can teach sailing on his Tartan racing Wicked Good or Buccaneer, Kick 'em Jenny. Each of us have over 50 years of boating experience. A healthy lifestyle starts within the first minute you arrive at my home. You will feel you have shed worries and pounds within a day's time. My home provides the perfect respite for a telework. Many have had corporate meetings, reunions and retreats here. Wouldn't life be great if we spent a little of every day truly living it?? You can definitely do it here! My motto: "Do something every day that scares you just a little!
