Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The minute you step into our charming waterfront cottage you will feel right at home!

Situated on Harness Creek, in a quiet residential neighborhood, the Yellow Cottage is a great place to 'get away from it all'. Recently renovated, our 60+ year old home has all of the modern day comforts to make your stay enjoyable. With the original heart pine floors and a huge farm sink in the kitchen, we have retained the feeling of a true waterfront cottage.

A cheerful country kitchen greets you as you enter the front door. If it's just a cup of tea you want or something more elaborate, the kitchen has it all. Beyond the kitchen is a sunny combination dining and living room area. Two oversize comfy chairs face the water in the sitting area where you can read or relax with a glass of wine.

With the two bedrooms, the cottage sleeps four guests in either a queen or full sized bed. A sleep sofa in the living room can sleep an additional guest.

During the summer months enjoy life on the creek! Bring your fishing rod and cast from the pier or try your hand at catching some local crabs. Rent canoes and paddle kayaks close by at Quiet Water's Park. Visit us during the fall and watch the leaves change across the creek from your Adirondack chair each morning. Or settle in for a cozy winter weekend at the cottage with a good book and some hot chocolate!

A wonderful spot to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a weekend at The Yellow Cottage. It was a lovely place to stay. The house was spotless and everything about it was comfortable. We went out on the river with the kayaks and sat in the Adirondack chairs looking at the river. It was an easy drive to go out to eat and to spend some time wondering in Annapolis. We took a long walk in the neighborhood both days we were there -- a really pretty place to enjoy the serenity of it all. Definitely can't go wrong with this house -- one of my favorite that we've rented and we've rented plenty!

Perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Could not be happier with our choice to rent this cottage for the weekend! The reason for going to Annapolis/Baltimore area was to pick up our son at BWI airport at midnight on Friday night - and we didn`t want to stay in a hotel. We got so much more than we bargained for! Not only was the cottage quite close to the airport (20 minutes away), but it was such a perfect spot to reunite as a family! The use of the kayaks and paddleboards was the highlight of our stay! Thanks for letting us use it! The cottage itself is very cute, and has everything you could wish for - beds are comfortable, everything was very clean, quick reponse from the owner on all our questions, and the yard and garden was just breathtaking with all the lillies flowering. Would love to come again! Highly recommended! (the only thing not working well was the TV - we only found one channel (History!), but we really didn`t want to watch TV with everything to do around, but just a FYI). Thanks again!

Beautiful little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough nice things about Rhonda and this cottage. She was easy to get ahold of and flexible with our arrival, as we ran into unexpected traveling issues. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and beautiful. The use of the kayaks was a bonus as well. Rhonda has thought of everything you would need to enjoy a great getaway. We had a wonderful time and will be back. Thank you for sharing your cottage with us!
