At Tanera Moor, it’s hard to decide which is more beautiful – the woods or the sea view. This beach house is stylishly appointed with stunning views across a small estuary into the Bay. The house features an open floor plan for easy entertaining. See diverse wildlife including, herons, swans, ospreys, bald eagles, and pelicans as you cook, read, or relax. Six bicycles provided free of charge with the rental provide guests an quick ride to the beach, which is a block and a half away. Or, amble down to the private, sandy beach by foot with beach bag in hand.
Once you reach the beach, 2 kayaks will await you – at not additional cost to exploure the Chesapeake Bay or one of the many nearby creeks that are full of birds and native grasses. Kayak or bicycle – the world is your oyster here.
Back in the house, the open floor plan, complete with a well-equipped kitchen, dining room, and sitting room allows a family or group to be together whether cooking, playing games, watching television or just relaxing. The fireplace makes winter days at Tanera as enticing as summer days. For even more relaxation, enjoy a wine tasting at nearby Woodlawn plantation – Slack wine dot com.
A short bike ride away is Point Lookout State Park, a Civil War site. Today the park, which is located on the point where the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River meet, 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, Tanera offers its visitors direct Bay views while nestled on one and one-half 1/2 acres of land. Enjoy rare waterview privacy (no other houses between your view and the Bay) and access so close to major cities and amenities.
