From the front door,you cross a dirt road and are only steps from sandy beaches...and out the back door is a lake/creek, which is a kayaker's delight (kayak access from Bay). Sporting a modern white beach decor, the cottage is an open plan and bigger than it may appear. This secluded Chesapeake Bay beach community is an 'away' destination that offers swimming, crabbing, kayaking, fishing and walking along miles of undeveloped shoreline - or it's equally great for just relaxing on the beach with a good book. Charming beach cottages are equipped with the latest amenities - safe and kid-friendly yet isolated enough to be a perfect couple's get away or a friends' weekend at the beach. Perfect for a party of 2 or 8. Master bedroom has a queen bed for parents and two twin beds for the kids. Two additional bedrooms are at the other end of the house: one with queen bed, one with two twin beds. And, a sofa large enough for sleeping or lounging in front of the tv is in the living room. A well-outfitted large porch fronts the house for dining and relaxing.

Ten miles from historic St. Mary's City, Maryland's original capital, and 5 miles from beautiful Pt. Lookout Park, biking, boating and fishing abound. Or, charter a boat and fish/enjoy the Bay while someone else does the work. Herons, egrets, osprey, bald eagles, diamond-back turtles and occasional pelicans share this special spot with other wildlife - and a few people, too.

Park your car and stay home or enjoy day trips to Solomon's Island, Smith Island (via boat from Pt. Lookout Park), St. George's Island or to historic Leonardtown for good food and browsing the quaint shops. It's hard to believe you are only 1.5 hours from Washington's Reagan Airport. Take a day off from the sunshine and visit Washington's Smithsonian Museums, the Capitol and scores of other attractions. Then, come home to the soothing waves lapping up to shore. Fall asleep and awake to the spectacular site of the sun rising over the Bay. Truly a little bit of heaven at Hays Beach.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Chesapeake Bay

Scotland is an undiscovered treasure with its sandy, private beach yet so near major amenities.

What makes this house unique

Walking up miles of undeveloped sandy beach with occasional small beach communities, this part of the Chesapeake Bay is truly unique to be located so close to major metropolitan areas like Washington and Baltimore. Watching the birds through binoculars, cooking with friends, relaxing on the beach without the crowds, whatever you want...Hays Beach lets you decide every day whether you want an action-packed day or simple relaxation on the beach minus the crowd.

MD beach house

  • 3 of 5

The location was off the beaten path allowing us to relax and enjoy our family time. 1st impression upon arrival was good. Rooms and furnishings very tastefully done. With a stay in December and cooler temps we attempted to turn on furnace to no avail. We called and themanager came out and get the furnace started, but that was not a fix needed so we stoked the fireplace and woke up to a very cool house hte next morning. Service team worked several houses next day to resolve the issue and heat was restored. Beach walks and visits to naval base and look out park was very enjoyable.

Gorgeous House Along the Chesapeake

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful stay over Thanksgiving. The cabin is immaculately decorated, clean and equipped with most everything you'll need for meals at home. The beach easily accessible, just across the street (through a neighbor's yard). It's a gorgeous expanse of sand and water. We walked up and down it every night, then detoured through the woods for a walk through the forest. The leaves were still in full fall foliage mode, so the walks were breathtaking. We'd definitely recommend the house to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway, far from the hustle bustle. So far, in fact, that it takes about 35-45 minutes to get to a reasonable grocery store, so be sure to stock up either before you go or on a special shopping day during your stay. Thanks, Peggy!

Great place

We enjoyed our stay. The house was well layed out and provisioned. I wish there was better internet but I understand the dificulties that far out.

Relaxing family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a first time visiting Scotland, MD and staying at one of Peggy's properties and we were not disappointed. The Hideaway was nice and cozy but big enough to accommodate all of us. The house was right across from the beach and we had access to bikes, kayaks, and beach chairs. Unfortunately, it rained for most of our stay but we enjoyed going to nearby Solomon's Island. Rob and Bob the property managers were great. Very friendly and attentive.
