My family and I were in a unique situation, and the only one to respond ASAP was Beth, the owner of this property. (Really a blessing in disguise and I'm very thankful.) As we relocated cross country and my family and I needed a place to stay for a month until we found a house to live, we stayed here. She opened her beautiful beach house to us. She has really made the house accommodations a little piece of heaven, it has EVERYTHING anyone needs. If you are looking to enjoy a weekend getaway, a week getaway, a girlfriend’s getaway, family retreat, ect...this is the place. The house is well kept, very clean, cute, and completely-stocked with all the amenities you could ask for. It is very peaceful house that is inches from the bay. A restaurant is within walking distance. You are close to Baltimore or DC. There is tons of shopping, outdoor parks, and much more activities within minutes. Beth has given this house a Chesapeake Bay personal touch.

You have a question, need help, she is there! She will respond as fast as she can! You can’t go wrong here, the only way you can go wrong is renting from someone else. We thank Beth and her family for making our move the best thing that has happened to our family!! It would have never been the same without her TLC!!! I have met a friend! My in-laws and extended family are staying here in March and are excited!!!

A Retreat is perfect description for this rental!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful experience. Beautiful rental that felt like a home. Traveled to tour DC, Annapolis and Baltimore. Had a peaceful place to rest every evening. Spacious house where we could spread out or join with our family who live locally. Great location for all our needs. Loved sitting on the deck in the morning listening to the birds, especially the woodpecker, lol. Definitely will return our next vacation to Maryland. Thank you so much.

Amazing deal for a low price!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week. The house is very clean. 3/2 house, two floors. Very quiet neighborhood, nice neighbors. The house is tucked away but still close to everything. Walking distance to Mike's Seafood house which is right on the water and has fresh seafood. The house also has a washer and dryer. Two TV's. The kitchen is semi stocked with some food, dishes, cups, pots and pans. Games, puzzles, cards etc.

This was the lowest priced place we found for the money that was clean, good location, and close to everything with a short drive.

I would come back again and recommend it to others. The owner Beth is very helpful. I could text her messages and she would get right back with me. On our first day staying there our key didn't work and she made sure she got us another key ASAP. This is a hidden gem at an amazingly low price. We will be back next year.

Perfect for a Family Gathering!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time while at the Chesapeake Bay staying at Rock Creek!

It was a great find for us to discover your wonderful home that was able to accommodate all of us in one place, just what we needed. We were close to the water and nature, as well as Annapolis and Baltimore activities. We were all able to stay in one place and gather for dinner and evening puzzles and family games in your large dining room and living room areas. It was perfect for our large group of family and kids.

We appreciate the special touches you offered, and your willingness to accommodate both adults and children.

This worked out perfectly for us all and we will definitely be back!

Thank you!

John & family

Quiet, cozy & perfect for the holidays

  • 5 of 5

In a bind, we had to make last minute plans for the holiday season for my whole family. Beth was extremely accommodating and was so great about getting back to me in a timely manner.

The house feels like a home, not just a vacation rental, which I think is a key ingredient when you are searching for a place to stay. We live in Pasadena already (just needed something bigger than our apartment) so it was lovely to show my family around the area.

It seemed like every time we needed something small that I had forgotten to pack (ie scissors or playing cards) it was right around the corner. The deck is also a really nice touch to get outside, which we got to enjoy, even though it was Christmas!

All in all, we had a wonderful stay and were so thrilled our first HomeAway experience was so positive. Will definitely be trying again on our next last-minute adventure.

Lovely Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This home is a lovely spot to gather with family. We enjoyed its proximity to Chesapeake Bay locations and events. It was in a quiet lovely neighborhood. The views of the water were relaxing, not to mention the beautiful sunsets from the yard and deck. We had all the space and amenities that our family needed to enjoy this vacation! We will be back!
