Why Babs Carryer chose Pasadena
We love the water, we love boating, and we love the Chesapeake. Magothy River Cottage is in an ideal location: on the water, close to Chesapeake Bay, and yet close to wonderful towns and cities like Annapolis, Washington DC, and Baltimore. The climate is temperate and the seasons are lovely. At the dock you will see our two boats, Grania our Sabre sailboat and Big Red our Albermarle motor boat.
What makes this Cottage unique
The view is stunning from daybreak to dusk. It is the most relaxing and inspiring house we have ever experienced. While there are lots of activities to do around boating and other, we often just enjoy the view and the peace and quiet of the river. Our guests sign the guest book and always love it. Many return for repeat visits.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
We stayed here for a week to visit family. After a full day of sightseeing, it was so nice to come back to thus peaceful beautiful view.
The Owners Babs and Tim were so friendly and made us feel very welcomed. We’ll definitely stay here again next time we visit.
Fantastic place, photos do not do it justice!
We loved our stay at Magothy Cottage. Right from the time of booking Babs made the process very easy and provided lots of information (great considering we are from the UK and were not familiar with the area). The house is in such a great location right on the river with beautiful views, so peaceful but is perfect for exploring - we had day trips to Great Falls, Washington DC, Annapolis and Baltimore as well as the local parks. There are plenty of shops and restaurants a short drive away. It’s very well equipped, clean and comfortable. We made good use of the kayaks and also brought an SUP with us so it was great to be able to just walk down to the jetty to use them. We would love to return one day!
Such a relaxing, peaceful and beautiful place to stay. I will definitely be back!
Relaxing vacation with a great view
We stayed for a week. The view was fantastic and the cottage was homey and comfortable. We were able to tie our boat up for the week at the dock and cruise the river whenever we wanted. Otherwise it was great just having a drink and snacks on the deck or at the dining room table enjoying the view and watching the boats.
Babs is a great hostess: very responsive and welcoming. Also offered us extra information about places to eat and things to do. Neighbors are nice as well.
We would love to go back again and again. Tnank you Babs!
Location, comfort, tranquility
...and add scenery, amenities and quality furnishings and decorations. We especially enjoyed just hanging out on the deck and enjoying the view. After a day or two, it feels like home, and you won’t want to leave. If you are thinking about renting this cottage, book it. You likely will not be disappointed.
Amazing cottage any time of year.
We had an Amazing stay at Babs cottage. Everything was set up so cozy and we loved how they had remodeled/renovated the home. Being able to wake up with water all around you and walk out to the dock first thing was incredible. Babs was also very great as a host and did what she could to recommend possible boat rental places (even though we were a little preseason) This is definitely a spot we intend to revisit once it gets a little warmer out.
Located halfway between Baltimore and Annapolis, Magothy Cottage is an ideal get-away location directly on the Magothy River but close to shopping, restaurants, and attractions.
