A beautiful place to stay, inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

The Driftwood Lodge was a perfect setting for our large family to stay. Although we visited the lodge 1 year prior, the website perfectly describes the place, so have no fear booking site unseen. There is so much room and the place is kept meticulous! Outside, we had access to kayaks, a hot tub, a grill, and good amount of seating. Also, there is PLENTY of parking.

Our daughter's wedding was held at the Herrington Harbour (less than 2 miles away). It was a special event in our lives and the Driftwood Lodge was so accommodating to our family. It gave us the much needed room, amenities, and the perfect place to relax and soak up the amazing scenic views of the Chesapeake Bay. The Property manager, Theresa, was simply the best. She ensured our stay was top notch, and was quick to answer questions or resolve any minor issues over our stay.

We would highly recommend this place and we look forward to a return visit!

Home, view, and location truly spectacular.

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our 2nd family reunion at Driftwood Lodge and remain grateful that this quality of property is available to rent. The furnishings, location, and viewing opportunities are just wonderful. We found everything in the immaculate condition it was in last year, which speaks highly of the owner, Jonathan, and the manager, Theresa. My husband and I are parents of 3 sons and grandparents of children ranging from 24 to 7; with a hot tub, kayaks, a small beach in close proximity, all found Driftwood Lodge enjoyable. But everyone agrees the best feature is the house itself; it's open design and pleasing architectural spaces so beautifully furnished makes it an extraordinary site for happy times and lasting memories.

Beautiful property for large groups

  • 5 of 5

The Driftwood Lodge is even more spacious and luxurious than the pictures suggest. It's a great place to host a special event or just relax with a big group of friends.

There's a great patio for grilling and eating al fresco. The kitchen is well equipped and is a lovely place to have breakfast. For relaxing, there are two living rooms, both with plenty of seating for big groups.

We spent lots of time in the yard just enjoying the beautiful view, and swam and kayaked off the dock.

And the owner and property manager were both easy to get in touch with and responded quickly.

Immaculate home with breathtaking views in a relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

We came here for a family reunion with 11 adults and 5 children and fit perfectly with even some extra room. We had previously done reunions in a hotel but this was so much better with all of us together in the home. The living spaces make for great conversations. The deck and viewing area on top of the house are so relaxing with great views. There are really nice local towns around with fantastic local restaurants and cafes. We all had such a pleasant time and would love to come back again! The property owner and manager are fantastic to work with and provide very prompt responses. The property manager was very helpful with knowing all the good local places to visit and eat at! We highly recommend the Driftwood Lodge. We'll be back!

Fabulous house with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our bridal party over our wedding weekend. This house was one of our favorite parts! Beautiful bay views, big spacious dock, the kitchen was glorious, huge open living room for gathering. Roof top deck was a hit. We spent a lot of time just hanging out on the dock and the large lawn. I even kayaked with some of my bridesmaids on the morning of my wedding! The bedrooms were spacious and the bathrooms were very nice. We did have an issue with the AC (my friend handled it as I had enough going on), and I think it was fixed relatively quickly.

Theresa was extremely helpful and so friendly! She gladly took my wedding bouquet, which really made my day because I could not just throw it away!

Let Jonathan know in advance if you're planning to have any additional guests or events held at the house!

We loved this house so much that my dad wants to plan a wedding reunion weekend next year for everyone to come back!

The view is sensational!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the layout of the house worked to facilitate a lot of group activities. Theresa was helpful and available for questions and worked hard to make sure we had a nice visit.

Skippers was fabulous and we enjoyed an authentic Maryland crab experience.

There were no bikes but that is ok as the surrounding area is not for rookie/vacation biking. The immediate neighborhood would be fine for kids.

DC was so easy to get into and we really enjoyed our time there.

And, just looking at that amazing view was so relaxing and enjoyable. The sky, water, coastline and sails... we got some amazing sunrise and sunset photos.
