Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Scotland, Point Lookout

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Summerlee awaits you (5 bedrooms, 5 baths total). This classic beach house has been fully renovated and luxuriously appointed. The house features an open floor plan for easy entertaining. Situated directly on Chesapeake, 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 screened-in porch, the wrap-around deck or the large deck off the master bedroom. Or, grab a beach chair or towel and head for the private sandy beach. The open floor plan, complete with a large kitchen, dining room, 2 sitting rooms and a TV room allows a large 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 Summerlee 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, Summerlee offer its visitors bayfront accommodations on an acre of land. Enjoy rare waterfront privacy so close to major cities and amenities.

About Peggy Binzel

Love urban life; also, love the isolated beach with amazing wildlife. Scotland is a welcome retreat from hectic city life.

Peggy Binzel purchased this house in 2007

Why Peggy Binzel chose Scotland, Point Lookout

Scotland is a rare find. Rarely do you find an area that begins with beautiful forests and opens up onto fabulous beaches. Little traffic but only 2 hours from Washington or Baltimore. I discovered a jewel.

What makes this house unique

Sunrise over the Bay with morning coffee is heavenly. Walks on the beach. Take a 30 minute kayak ride or a 5 hours one - very convenient out the front door. Enjoy a tasting of good quality local wines at beautiful Woodlawn plantation just 10 miles away.

Summerlee extended weekend

  • 5 out of 5
The house is perfect for big groups/families and very open living. The beach and beaches with access are very pleasant. We caught crabs in the streams going to the back water areas and also took the kayaks there for some exercise and relaxation. We did ride the bikes and last year took about a 5 mile ride to near by point look out. We have not tried fishig yet but many people do in the area. Mostly we had fun playing games and having each member of the family cook their favorite meal in the kitchen, with a little sooo chef help from siblings... a good place to unwind. Coming and going we visited the small historic towns in the area like the college at St. Mary's... We always bring plenty of food. It is a little bit of a hike to a grocery, but the refrigerator/freezer is huge, throw in acooler or two and you are covered. The beds are all very comfy and there is a fireplace. It was so nice we did not even have a fire this year inside or out. Perfect weather and not a jelly fish in sight. Just Osprey and Blue Crabs...

Perfect for a couples' getaway

Perfect for a couples' getaway
  • 5 out of 5
We planned a trip for 4 couples, for which this house was absolutely perfect. Each couple had their own queen-sized bed and private bathroom. One single friend who came along got the room with 2 twin beds and also his private bathroom. We went for a run around the trails nearby the house, where we saw deer. One couple borrowed the bikes that come with the house and went biking. Many of us also went out kayaking -- there are 2 single-person kayaks that come with the house and the property managers brought us 2 additional single-person kayaks so that more people could go out at the same time. You can kayak to an estuary very near the house on the Chesapeake bay that leads to a few small lakes with lots of herons and other fishing birds which was really cool to see. We also got 100 oysters, and even though only 1 person in our group had shucked an oyster, the owner of the oyster-farm came, brought shucking equipment, and taught us how to shuck oysters safely. It was a TON of fun, and the oysters were some of the best I've ever had. Finally, we spent the evenings cooking and grilling on the BBQ (also comes with the house), sitting around the fireplace, and staring at the stars on the small private beach. It was a perfect weekend getaway - just enough privacy for each couple, but also a lot of fun stuff to do as a group.

A perfect way to see in the New Year!

  • 5 out of 5
Summerlee is a beautiful, wonderfully decorated, house that had everything you could possibly ask for. We loved the fireplace, the kayaks and the gourmet kitchen! Dinners were spent with amazing sunsets and the mornings were filled with walks along the beach. Our dogs didn't want to leave!

Amazing!

Had a blast here with my friends and family over the holiday weekend!! Catching and grilling fresh bluefish off the private beach made the whole weekend for me. I will definitely be back every year!

Perfectly lovely!

  • 5 out of 5
This is the second year my giant family has stayed at Summerlee and four neighboring homes for a long weekend. We love it there. The house is perfectly lovely, beautifully maintained and well stocked for cooking and serving. There are several sizeable gathering places in the house, so we never felt like we were on top of each other. Additionally, though the house is situated in a very quiet Scotland, there is plenty to do to entertain a range of ages and interests. We enjoyed an easy bike ride to Point Lookout, long walks along the beach and a fun happy hour at Buzzy's! I can't wait to go back to Summerlee for a girls' getaway!

Great House!

  • 5 out of 5
My group of 12 friends stayed at the house for a weekend. The house is perfect. Everyone had enough room and the views were to die for. Wish we would have stayed longer. Everything looks better in person than on the pics, which is hard to believe. Great Vacation!
