About Tim Zimmermann

I am a writer, sailor, and cyclist, who loves spending time on the Chesapeake with my wife and two children.

Tim Zimmermann purchased this house in 1996

Why Tim Zimmermann chose Edgewater

If you live in the Washington DC region and want to spend time on the water, there is no place more beautiful than the Chesapeake Bay. My family loves to fish, boat, swim, and crab, and a week (or even a weekend) relaxing at Bear Neck Creek House is the best getaway we can imagine.

What makes this house unique

I spent many years sailing the Chesapeake Bay, but when I first saw this house I knew I had to move there. The house is simple yet open, full of light, and comfortable. The access to the water is unbeatable, the open Chesapeake Bay is just around the corner, and the Rhode River just off the house opens up into a bay that offers everything from daysailing to quiet paddling. There is always something fun and interesting to do on the water, and ospreys and crabs to keep you company. What I especially love is the quiet of the sunrise, and the perfect light of the sunsets.

Perfect location for holiday weekend

  • 5 out of 5
We rented this house with two other families for a long weekend. All of us had kids, from infant to five years old, and this place was absolutely perfect for them! Lots of indoor space to spread out meant that a rainy day was no big deal, and the spacious backyard and playground was great when it did stop raining. The view was absolutely stunning. Easy drive to Annapolis for a football game and sightseeing. Owner was prompt with communication and made sure everything was set up before our arrival. Would absolutely love to rent this place again!

Family Get Together

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great time and hope to return. The place was great for our family, very spacious, so we could spread out. Everything was as described on the website. Our group consisted of grandparent, parent and young adults. We fished, crabbed, kayak and swam in the pool. The owner was extremely friendly and very helpful with area attractions.

Perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
Came to this rental for a long weekend to attend our daughter's wedding shower. The place was a perfect place for our family and friends to gather. Easy access and close to everything we needed. Very comfortable home in a beautiful setting. We hope to return in the summer to take full advantage of the pool and waterfront. Thanks Tim!!

Holiday Family Get-together

  • 5 out of 5
The house was perfect. Secluded, with great views. Mid-winter birds: eagles, hawks, ducks (three or four varieties). Still close enough to Annapolis for fine restaurants. We mostly hung out on the deck or in the spacious living room with the pellet stove. The master bedroom suite is great. Everyone wanted to stay, or come back soon.
