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 Point Lookout

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.

A lovely place for relaxing and exploring.

  • 5 of 5

Bruadair was an excellent home base for our explorations of Point Lookout and beyond. The house has a lovely setting right on its own piece of private beach. We found it to be clean, comfortable and spacious. The views are amazing from the sun's glorious rise to the spectacular starry night skies. We were new to the area and fell in love with all the natural attractions it has to offer. From beach combing to hiking to biking; it was the perfect fall getaway. We definitely plan on getting away to it again.

Beautiful house right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year doing a winter trip to the house. It is a wonderful house with everything we need and the managers were very responsive in bringing over cribs and a high chair before we got there. The master suite is huge and very nice and the other bedrooms are lovely. The glass window bedroom needed a space heater, but with that you could feel like you were on the beach right in bed. There is not much to do in the area in winter, but for either a romantic retreat or a family vacation where you want to dig in/walk on the beach and play games, it is a good option. Point lookout park has a playground and some grassy areas for running/playing also.

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.
