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.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

My family of eight and two dogs have just returned from a very relaxing vacation at Bruadair.The house was immaculate,spacious and well appointed.We all enjoyed kayaking,walking around the immediate area and even chartered a fishing boat one day,which was a lot of fun.

I would highly recommend it and hopefully will return.

Searching for a slice of heaven? Glistening water, beautiful home, amazing views? This is the one!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home right on the water with stunning views of the bay! Every morning while having coffee on the outdoor deck we watched the sun dancing on the water. We made great use of the kayaks with sunrise trips to the estuary a short paddle from the house. Paddling through the tall grasses and watching the large birds soar overhead made me feel as though I was stepping back in time. The water was warm which made for great swimming. We made day trips to Saint Mary’s, Leonardtown, Solomon's Island and a few other places. Courtney’s for lunch with the most delicious seafood was a treat. We barbecued most evenings and then enjoyed the sunset from the screened-in porch. The house was extremely clean and well cared-for; everything we needed was provided including soaps, paper products, linens and towels. Having a washer and dryer on the lower level allowed us to pack light and do laundry as needed. Access to the outdoor shower was bonus. If you have an opportunity to rent the cottage behind the main house I would definitely encourage you do to so. We had a family of 10 adults and it was wonderful having a separate place for those who needed a bit of downtime. The cottage is very modern and high-end; a great use of space with an outdoor sitting area with its own view of the water. We were thrilled with the home and the location right on the water. I would highly recommend renting this home for your vacation. Communication with Peggy was fantastic; she responded very quickly to our questions and was extremely friendly and professional. We look forward to our next trip. A big thank you to Peggy and her team!

My favorite vacation spot EVER

  • 5 of 5

Our annual visit to Bruadair-Classic Beach House never fails. I can't imagine a better vacation. We typically rent the main house and the guest house and stay with a group of friends. It is a kayaking, fire pit, rafting, grilling bonanza. I can't ask for more. The house has everything you need for a WONDERFUL vacation. Thank you!!!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our group of eight adults and three small children spent a week at Bruadair and the guest house. Everything was as advertised. The house and guest house were well appointed. Everything we needed was supplied with quality products.

The beach was beautiful! We enjoyed the kayaking and made several trips to the estuary. On a less than perfect day we toured the area.

All agreed it was the perfect way to spend the week.

Bruadair House and Cottage

  • 5 of 5

June 12-19, 2017. We were part of a large group that rented several of Peggy's properties. The house/cottage and amenities were terrific - exceeded our expectations..... We would definitely rent from Peggy again.. We strongly recommend the Bruadair properties. Ron & Mary Ann Zimmerman

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.
