Save on your first Airbnb stay (some restrictions apply):

The space
A true retreat, our cottage offers you a cozy place to enjoy the quiet, laid-back country lifestyle, with a serene, panoramic view of the Chesapeake Bay and the mouth of Deale Harbor from our deck or enclosed porch. You may relax on a bench in the shaded gardens, or do some outdoor grilling on the double broiler in our picnic area. Master BR has a King bed for 2, which is adjoined to Bedroom 3, which has a has a twin day bed (or may serve as an adjunct room to create a Master suite); BR 2 has a Queen bed for 2 (with an additional window seat that can serve as a toddler bed); and 3 twin beds under skylights in an open loft reached by library ladder! Guests should consider the convenience of one bathroom.

Our family cottage was built in the 1920s, redesigned in the 1990s and updated more recently, retaining at its heart the original rafters and open ceiling, brick hearth and chimney built by our grandfather. It is appointed with all modern amenities, comfortable furniture and interesting decor. Families from Washington, DC flocked to the Chesapeake Bay to escape the heat of the city, enjoy summers by the water and outdoors. Today, we enjoy all four seasons at the cottage; we hope you will, too.

Where you’ll be

Tracys Landing, Maryland, United States

Difficult decisions ahead: will you take a walk along tranquil country roads or to the nearby marina? Enjoy a round of croquet or shuffleboard? Would you like to fish, float or just curl up with a stack of novels?

Arkhaven is a small, quiet neighborhood, with homes placed in a ring around a central grassy area which is a great spot for throwing a Frisbee, using the shuffleboard court, running around with your kids.
Please be sure to adhere to the posted 10MPH speed limit.

An artist, actress and business owner, I grew up getting to spend at least a week each summer with my grandmother at the cottage my brothers and I now co-own (and share on Airbnb). I have a deep affection for the Chesapeake Bay region, and lived in Annapolis for over 35 years. Now I live in Mexico, where I manage another Airbnb for a friend!
