Overview

About the property

4 bedroom/3 bath main house; optional 1 bedroom/bath guest house 766952

Bruadair's (Scottish Gaelic for 'dream') open floor plan allows everyone to gather in a common space with water views abounding or retreat to your own nook while its exquisite new (optional) guest house (listing 766952) gives others privacy.

Three bedrooms and 2 baths are located on the main, living level while the spacious master bedroom is upstairs with its own large bath, shower and whirlpool tub. The optional guest house adds another bedroom and bath (separate rental 766952), which could bring the total to 5 bedrooms and 4 baths.

Bruadair has a beautiful deck overlooking the water, plus a large screened-in porch provides great breezes and water views, too. Glass doors highlight the views whether you are cooking, playing games, reading or watching television. Step out the glass sliders, three steps down the deck and the private beach awaits you.

With 2 kayaks and 4 bicycles included in the rental, touring the Bay, the estuaries or the Park is a breeze. Ospreys, herons, bald eagles, pelicans and other natural beauties are outside the door or tucked away in nearby estuaries where kayaking in a peaceful setting is magnificent.

Scotland Yards makes your stay easy. We provide guests with towels, linens, kitchen supplies, paper towels, soaps, shampoo and everything you need to truly get away. Just bring yourselves and your food and your personal effects.

Our guests frequently comment that the rarely want to leave once they arrive. For those who so choose to venture out, a lovely local winery, historic St Mary's City, various historical plantations and other destinations such as Solomon's Island, Leonardtown and St. George's Island provide entertainment.

Young children love the Calvert Marine Museum, about 30 miles away on Solomon's Island.

With a private beach in front while nestled in a wooded, small beach community, guests have the best of woods and water. This is not a boardwalk! But, If you want luxury accommodations, waves lulling you to sleep, kayaking and otherwise enjoying a secluded beach setting, Bruadair and its guest house beckon you.

For monthly rates from October - April, please inquire.

About Peggy Binzel

Hail from Duncan, Oklahoma but in love with the water. My dream is to restore Chesapeake Bay beach homes, return native landscaping and provide guests with a luxury beach home in a natural setting to relax, unwind, recharge and enjoy friends and family.

Peggy Binzel purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Peggy Binzel chose Chesapeake Bay

Scotland is a magical place. Waking up on your own private beach every morning with native plants, flowers and the sound of the waves is priceless.

Beautiful house - just be prepare to cook.

  • 5 of 5

I decided to rent this house to spend time with my brother and sisters and their family. We stayed from Thursday to Sunday and it was a lovely home. There is one room with all glass windows and blinds where you can choose to watch the sunrise and sunset from the bed, which I think is pretty nice. The beds were comfortable. I also love that I did not have to bring towels and little stuff like shampoo and soap and household items. And most importantly, the house was cleaned.

I have a love/hate relationship with the location. We had a wonderful time riding the bikes, swimming and kayaking, and just hanging out on beach and sun. Just being outside with nature rather than the concrete jungle; so, five stars for that.

This is not a negative response to the owner or the house, but I just want to inform other renters that the distance to the nearest big chain grocery store is 25 minutes away. I am all about supporting local businesses as we had great oysters, shrimp and crabs from Kellam's seafood. But there is only so much seafood I can eat. The other general stores nearby did not have everything that we needed. So, if you plan on staying here and is big on food, make sure to plan out your meals and you will have a wonderful time.

What a beautiful place! That ocean view~

  • 5 of 5

First thing i said to myself when i arrived to Bruadair was just "WOW". Not only is quite secluded but the beach front is something i would never forget. The house is beautiful and very spacious. Will definitely be coming back to this community. Thank you Peggy!

Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Great stay, my only complaint is that I had to clean the windows to be able to see beauty of water and beach and had to wipe down enclosed porch furniture and sweep porch and patio.

We had a lovely spring break and though the water was cold we enjoyed the views and quiet, bird watching and kayaks. The house was great and we hope to come again one day...thank you!

Great time despite the weather

  • 4 of 5

Great spot! Unfortunately, we had very nasty weather and weren't able to fully appreciate the location and its amenities. The bikes and kayaks were very tempting. The house is very spacious. Lots of room for everyone.

Excellent property in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house while our college swimmers were taking part in their conference championships at St. Mary's in February (who would have thought it would be in the mid 60s all weekend). This was the perfect alternative to a hotel room. The owner and property managers were very responsive to emails. We will be back!

Nearest Beach
steps from the front door
Car: necessary

Scotland is rich in history; only 10 miles from the original capital of Maryland and 3 miles from Pt. Lookout State park - a Civil War POW site. For waterlovers, the Bay, the Potomac, the Patuxent and beautiful creek and estuaries abound. A perfect 'away' destination.
