Overview

About the property

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 Chesapeake Bay

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.

Fantastic house - great for our large group!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family reunion and it was outstanding! The spacious 5 BDR + 5BA was perfect for our two families + grandparents - comfort and privacy. The home is beautifully decorated with two sitting areas inside and a lovely screened in porch with additional seating. The porch had a table seating six and there was an additional outdoor table for 6 on the deck off the master - so many great options! The dining table easily accommodated our group of 11 and the kitchen was very well stocked to feed our crew for the week. We used both bikes and kayaks provided every day and loved having our own private beach right out the door. We caught crabs every day and also enjoyed walks around the neighborhood - it is such a lovely peaceful and quiet place. Peggy was wonderful to work with and we hope to return again to this marvelous location!

Loved the cottage, and loved the view of the Chesapeake Bay and sunset! All of us, had a great time fishing and lounging on the beach around the bonfire. Would like to come back again!

Winter beach family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Came to the area to run the Lower Potomac River Marathon in Piney Point. It may have been because it was winter, but the area was so peaceful and quiet. It made for a relaxing weekend for all 7 of us. There was a slight issue with the hot water not working shortly after we arrived (we may have been the first guests for the winter) but maintenance came within 20 minutes of our call - Robb & Bob were wonderful and helped to get the issue resolved for us. Woke up to the most amazing sunrises and enjoyed relaxing evenings watching the sun set over the water. It was especially beautiful to watch the full moon's reflection over the water. We even took the kayaks for a spin in the bay a few times, in the middle of march! The house was well supplied with quality appliances, bedding, and kitchen items so we had all the equipment needed to make our own meals.

Our only complaints would be that we could not find any dish towels in the house, and more coffee cups would have been nice because we had so many people and we all drink coffee!

Because we were so busy with the marathon and relaxation, we unfortunately didn't get to visit nearby Point Lookout State Park - we will just have to come back and enjoy Summerlee again!

Owner's Response: We hope to welcome these guests back to Summerlee soon! At Scotland Yards, we pride ourselves in responding to guests whenever things go a bit askew - which we hope is not often. We've installed an on-demand hot water boiler so that guests don't run out of hot water, but the system is a little more complicated than a regular tank water heater so we apologize that our guests had a temporary issue. We hear our guests and will add more coffee cups! With respect to tea towels, if guests ever find a basic item like that missing, just let our property managers know and we'll try to remedy the situation.
