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.

LOVE the place!

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the house is very open with great views of the beach and pier. The beach was literally in the back yard. We caught some fish off the pier and the kids also caught some crabs at the nearby creek. The house was very clean and well stocked with all the linens and cookware. We're already making plans to come back!

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Bruadair. The house was in the perfect location. Everything was provided and all items were top quality. We had a special family time with 4 generations from 4 months to 88 years old. We hope to be able to come again. We cooked together, played outside, kayaked, and the kids rode bikes. We celebrated a birthday. The beds felt wonderful. A good time for all. Thanks Peggy.

Another amazing year at the Chesapeake

  • 5 of 5

This is our 7th year vacationing in Scotland. There is no better place and we will continue to come down here through the summer, spring and fall. Peace and quiet, amazing views and wildlife, it truly is a piece of heaven! As always the home was clean and well appointed, I really can't express enough how awesome of a retreat it is from day to day life. Thank you Scotland Yards for helping my family take a great and realign for the school year ahead!

Location

Nearest Airport
80 Miles
Reagan National
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.
