The Scotland Yards Philosophy

DO AS LITTLE OR AS MUCH AS YOU WANT

Relax. Recharge. Reconnect.

Wake up to a beautiful sunrise…or sleep in, wiggle your toes in the sand, read a book or spend an afternoon simply taking in the sights and sounds of the water then sidle up to an evening bonfire.

Go crabbing, try out the kayaks, take a swim, walk the beach, discover wildlife from blue herons, osprey, pelicans and bald eagles to the occasional dolphin pods, collect shells and beach glass.

Connect with family and friends in our larger, nearby cottages, enjoy a romantic get-away or recharge alone.

Enjoy it your way!

RELAX

Relax on the Beach

Whether your idea of relaxing is reading a book or napping to the sound of the waves, sharing a glass of wine by the water with friends, watching birds or ships traverse the Bay… you get the idea.  Or, if it’s working out your tension kayaking the Bay or its inlets, swimming or taking a long bicycle ride, it’s all good.  Relax your way.

RECHARGE

Enjoy Fresh Seafood

Whether recharging for you means sleeping late or getting up early to take in magnificent sunrises over the Bay – either way, it’s okay.  Whether it’s the luxury of time to cook an old-favorite dish and try out a new recipe  or maybe it’s yoga on the beach.  Maybe it’s just solitude – peace and quiet without the noise and distractions of daily life.  Recharge your way.

RECONNECT

Experience the Outdoors

Whether busy schedules mean you need a chance to reconnect with your nuclear family, your extended family or your friends, our beach houses make it perfect.  Love your family and friends but want your own little retreat? Choose a large house and a one-bedroom cottage so you can have the best of both worlds.  Want to be in the thick of things? Claim your favorite of our beautifully-decorated bedrooms in a four, five or seven bedroom house.  Reconnect your way.

What People are Saying

“A Great Find”

"Everything about this house is 5 stars! From the luxury of the furniture, the quality of the mattresses , the amazing service - they even give you fresh clean beach and linen towels! Detergent! Shampoo! It was like staying in a 5 stars hotel - but with an ocean front view and the space of a house! Every room had a bathroom- which is a plus! - the view, the eagles! The kayaks - we would definitely come back next year for more than a week!"

Guest @ Summerlee

“Unbelievable location and perfect home”

"The home is even better than the pictures!! We didn't realize how private, quiet, and spacious the small community was! The views were breathtaking, and the atmosphere was just so calm. This home provides its own entertainment whether you enjoy, biking, kayaking, stargazing, fishing, or just chilling out on the airy decks. This is the place to go for some tranquility and rejuvenation!! Not to forget that Peggy was so pleasant to work with and accommodated all our needs before our stay and during!! Kudos to Peggy for a home well done!"

Guest @ Marabheag

“Beautiful house in a secluded location”

"My husband and I came here with our dog for a short 3-day getaway. Clean house, beautifully decorated, and less than a 5 minute walk from the beach which was just down the street. Bigger grocery stores were a half hour drive, but you can find everything you need in the Dollar General or local market 10 mins away. We had the beach to ourselves most of the time with only maybe 1 or 2 other couples/families dropping in once a while. Definitely make sure to put on bug spray before going to the beach, especially in the evenings. We would definitely love to return next summer!"

Guest @ Chesabelle

"Very Relaxing!"

"There is more than enough room for two people and our two beagles as well. The pictures give an excellent representation of the property. We enjoyed the decorations.The kitchen is equipped with all the basics. Everything is in excellent shape: furniture, bathroom, dishes, pots and pans, TV, linens, towels..."
