Thank you very much for the nice respite away from home and cute gathering place to meet our son and have Easter. We loved the location! Sunshine, parks & water! Thank you for the little touches such as the wine, water bottles, sprite and extra wood..and ice! Thanks for all the info, emails & courtesy / consideration through it all. You are a real gentleman. Enjoy your Spring!
Let me start by saying Paul owns an amazing home. I recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan, and 15 of my closest friends and I were looking to go on a vacation. After long hours of searching, we found the Crow's nest in Annapolis. Wow, what a beautiful home and property. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the kitchen has everything you need for cooking. The yard is spacious both front and back, and everything is as advertised. I would definitely recommend this home for anyone's vacation, and I plan on returning at my next possible convenience.
Paul, the owner, could not have been more attentive to seeing that the house was accessible and we were comfortable. He also made known he was always available to communicate. The house is impeccable with a great sunrise view. Very comfortable!! Without exception we are looking forward to returning.
We had a wonderful vacation at the Crow's Nest Cottage. The home easily fit our group of six (four adults and two children). We really liked the neighborhood, and enjoyed taking the kids to the playground and playing basketball on the nearby court. Paul was an excellent host -- great communication and very accommodating of our check-in and check-out times. We had a great stay!
My sister, brothers and our families were in Annapolis to see the Navy/Milford game in which my nephew played. We are from Louisiana and wanted to enjoy the area so we looked for a large home with Northeastern character. We were not disappointed! The kitchen/living room area was very open and the furnishings, lighting and décor was perfect. Great views of the Chesapeake Bay and beautiful fall foliage. The many bedrooms were all of high quality and very clean. The outside area was just as enjoyable as we spent evenings around the fire pit and relaxing in the hot tub. Grocery stores and restaurants were near. We would definitely stay here again!
We had a great weekend in Annapolis. The property is perfectly located on the bay and just minutes from Annapolis. Highly recommend this property.
We had a family reunion at the Crow’s Nest Cottage. It was an amazing home to stay in with so many bedrooms. The home was had everything we needed . The basement was perfect with all the children. We really enjoyed the outdoors. We had two major cookouts with my family. We felt right at home and everything was very comfortable. The water is ner by and everyone has a wonderful time. The owner was so kind he even had ice and water for us. The home is very well kept and very clean. It was a wonderful area and home for my family.
