Marabheag (little sea) – A Scotland Yards property – is situated directly on Chesapeake. Come hear the waves while you cook, read or relax; see diverse wildlife including, herons, swans, ospreys, bald eagles, and pelicans through expansive glass doors, from the Florida room, one of the many decks, including a large deck off the master bedroom. Or, grab a beach chair or towel and head for the private pier or the sandy beach.
2 kayaks and 4 bicycles are available for guest use. The floor plan, complete with a full kitchen, dining room, sitting room and a fireplace allows a family or group to be together whether cooking, playing games, watching television or just relaxing. A crackling fire in the wood burning fireplace makes winter days at Marabheag as enticing as summer days. Enjoy a weekend wine tasting at nearby Woodlawn plantation – Slack wines dot com.
A short-bike ride away is Point Lookout State Park, a Civil War site. Today the park, which is located at the intersection of the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River, hosts miles of protected land set aside for biking, kayaking, boating, fishing, camping or enjoying nature as well as a museum that provides a historical perspective on the region. Or charter a boat at one of many local marinas for a day of fishing on the Bay. Another nearby historical site is St. Mary’s City (10 miles), the original capital of Maryland. Visitors are 25 minutes from dining and shopping on Solomon’s Island or in historic Leonardtown. Or enjoy one of several local marina restaurants. Want a day trip away? All that the nation’s capital has to offer is a short 80 miles away.
Collect shells and beach glass while walking uninterrupted for miles along the sandy beach. Unlike typical cheek-by-jowl beach houses, Marabheag offers its visitors bayfront accommodations in a secluded beach community, surrounded by woods. Enjoy rare waterfront privacy so close to major cities and amenities.
