Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Point Lookout - Summerlee

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.

Wonderful property and location

  • 5 of 5

The floor plan and lay out of Summerlee is perfect for the extended family. Grandchildren can retire to their own place and everybody may separate whenever they want.

Very few things that I can think of that I could had expected or wanted and that hadn't been provided. Here's a minor one: better knives. Trivial but that is all I can think of. The small touches: books and magazines scattered about, extra soaps and towels, extra paper goods, excellent kitchen and dishes, comfortable furnishings, etc made this a great place.

The location is a bit out of the way so stock up on groceries and insect repellent (pesky flies that bite). If you want nearby shopping and a beach to people-watch, you should go elsewhere. This is not what we wanted so the location was ideal. Bring binoculars to watch the working boats, freighters, and birds; you will appreciate the lives of the watermen as they tend to the crab pots visible off shore.

I would recommend Summerlee to others; and we will revisiit in the future.

Great Home & View!

  • 4 of 5

Our family vacation at Summerlee was great! The view of the beach from the wall of windows is fabulous! We enjoyed playing in the sand with our grandkids, swimming, kayaking, crabbing, biking on flat roads & playing games on the screened in porch. Peggy has so many amenities at the house. You only need to bring food & bug spray. The beds are all very comfortable. It was a wonderful place for 3 generations to spend a week together. Plenty of room for everyone with 2 sitting rooms, a large kitchen & dining table, 5 bedrooms each with their own bath, laundry room, screened in porch. A wonderful place to make memories with those you love!

11 people and plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

The home is set up for fun and entertaining. We liked that we did not have to share bathrooms and that the beach was out the back door. We also enjoyed a rehearsal dinner for 40 that was held outside with plenty of room.

The osprey nest on the dock was a bonus.

Perfect gathering spot for my son's wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time with everyone meeting for my son's wedding! WE enjoyed the beach, the state park, the ospreys and having plenty of space to picnic outside. We had bonfires on the beach and just have enough time to enjoy the company of our out of town guests! Amidst the chaos of a wedding, Sumerlee was our little spot of heaven!

Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time here in the area. Everybody had a great time. Everything was great from the booking through the help and kindness of Peggy , who answers all our inquiry in a timely manner. Bob and Rob (property managers) were great, they are there in an instant when we needed them. Overall this is a great weekend well spent. Definitely looking forward to stay in the house again.
