About ann holladay

We built this home in 1990 and have added on a couple of times in the last 8 years.Our family, three sons and many friends have loved this special spot for weekends and summers for over 20 years now:many wonderful memories have been created catching crabs,boating,biking and long walks along private country roads.simply watching the most spectacular sunsets is reason enough to come!

Why ann holladay chose Chesapeake Bay

my husband grew up in Baltimore and spent summers around the chesapeake,so after getting married in 1979,we started visiting this well familiar area and fell in love with this particular spot.We loved the expansive views over Broad Creek with the most amazing sunsets night after night.We have enjoyed many family and individual bike outings,often to Oxford via the Bellevue ferry and lunch,dinner and shopping is a short distance away,with many lovely offerings no matter what direction you go.

What makes this apartment unique

we built our home around the sensational views of expansive water and huge horizons showcasing the most incredible sunsets throughout the year.One can sit and simply look at the glistening water,the expansive starry sky,the ospreys building their nest while listening to the songs of the various birds and other wildlife.It's wonderful to be away but yet so close to excellent restaurants and local tourist attractions ;to have the choice of going out or staying in and grilling and eating in the gazebo and then watching a movie(wonderful assortment provided!)and ending the night under the stars!Did I mention the incredible sunsets??????:)

Believe the hype!

  • 5 of 5

Four of my girlfriends and I visited Ann's stunning and spacious property last weekend. The reviews honestly do not do this place justice. The five of us slept comfortably and never felt cramped- not only is the cottage spacious, but the surrounding land, dock and bay access gave us the room and solitude we were seeking. The kayaks were a big hit, and we took them out into the bay multiple times a day to observe the birds and wildlife. The view of the sunset cannot be beat. St. Michael's is a close drive, but we ended up spending the full weekend enjoying the beautiful property! The bathrooms are large, comfortable and modern, and the kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meals, as we did. Thank you to Ann (and Peaches!) for checking in on us- she really is a magnificent and welcoming host. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful and serene

  • 5 of 5

A lovely and well appointed guest house. Perfect for a quiet girls' weekend or couples retreat. We were in the area for my son and a friend to complete an Iron Man competition. It was the perfect quiet spot to rest up for and then unwind after race day. Beautiful evenings On the waters edge watching the sunset. The homeowner made little touches that made us feel welcome and more comfortable. A wonderful experience, I would book again if I ever have occasion to be in the area again.

The property was gorgeous! Lots of space. Definitely the place for peace and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Ann was a great host. We saw her daily during our stay. Her communication before, during, and after our stay was very good.

The house was fully furnished...just like the pictures showed. We were welcomed with a delicious loaf of banana bread in the kitchen! We were very grateful that Ann allowed us to bring our dog. He loved running around in the large backyard and playing with Ann's dog, Peaches.

We spent a lot of time outside...on the water in kayaks, riding bikes, playing basketball, eating in the gazebo, sitting on the porch with morning coffee, and watching the spectacular sunsets on the Adirondack chairs!

The weather cooperated for a majority of our stay. It did rain a bit, but we spent that time playing games and watching movies (that were provided at the house).

This was truly a home away from home. We would love to come back again!
