Great location, very nice neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

Bob was great. No hassle, no fuss. House was spacious, very clean, outfitted with everything you might need and the AC was cold! Nice little beach area right outside too. If you're a crab or seafood person there is a great reataurant about 1/2 mile down the street.

Was about 15 mins to Annapolis and my daughter is going to Washington College in Maryland about a 50 min drive. Airport was about a 30 to 45 minutes.

Thanks again Bob for everything. I hope next time not to have to leave early. I would definitely stay here again and would reccomend the Tree House to others.

Wonderful owners; very accommodating. Property is amazing with great water views quiet surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

After a very minor hiccup with scheduling, upon arrival all was made right by Sheryl and Bob. A real gem in the VRBO inventory. Cannot say enough about the clean home, being very well appointed up to date appliances, creature comforts etc. Detailed page about shopping, WiFi, arrival-departure instructions, etc. Best crab house in Annapolis (Cantlers) is a 10 minute walk down the road. An easy 10-15min ride into Annapolis and the Naval Academy. Can give a 5++ Star rating about the entire stay.

Beautiful vacation home in a private setting. Great kayaking on Mill Creek.

  • 5 of 5

The tree house was neat, clean and updated. Quiet setting but close to so much including downtown Annapolis. Owners accommodating and helpful. We kayaked up and down Mill Creek multiple times in between the rain storms. Kept busy doing puzzles, playing games and going to the nearby mall.

Perfect Family Escape with Easy Access to Downtown

  • 5 of 5

This home away from home is excellent! Bob and Sheryl have gone out of their way to ensure a comfortable stay and a very simple transition into a rental away from home. This "Tree House" is the cleanest and most updated home we have rented through VRBO. The home has every amenity necessary whether you want to play in the beautiful, scenic, clean and slow moving Mill Creek or just use the home as a base for day trips into downtown Annapolis; Washington DC or Baltimore's Inner Harbor. The owners immediately ensured that we were settled into the home and were happy and then left us to enjoy ourselves, while being accessible for any issues. (there were none). My girls enjoyed the swimming, fishing and crabbing. This was our first trip to this area and the whole family agreed that they wanted to come back here in the future. This home is within walking, biking, kayaking distance to the famous Jimmy Cantler's Crab and Seafood Restuaurant (excellent Maryland Blue Crab). While nicely secluded from the hustle and bustle, this home is an 8 minute drive (20 minute bike ride) over the Severn River to downtown Annapolis and the US Naval Academy. The home was completely supplied with matching sets of dishes, glassware and flatware. Plenty of towels were available. They even provided some coffee, tea, hot chocolate (and soaps) to use before we had a chance to shop locally. This home and the hospitality were everything we could have hoped for. For full disclosure, there is a steep and long set of stairs to get down to the sandy beach and docks on the creek. However, I am sure if you asked, Bob and Sheryl would allow anyone unable to use the stairs to get closer to the water by using their driveway which is next door. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Also, we caught an 18" inch (not a fisherman's exaggeration) catfish, some very large blue crabs and some perch and striped bass right off the floating dock. We did catch and release. The home comes with a single and double kayak, a canoe and a standup paddleboard (wind surfer without the sail). Which was excellent so we did not have to bring our own. Loved this place!!!

Perfect Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Whether you are in the area for business or pleasure, this is the perfect place for your home base. We stayed in this lovely home over the Holidays in 2017. I had classes to attend in the DC area related to my doctoral degree studies and my husband was looking for opportunities to hone in on his photography skills. We never met the owners in person, but were thrilled with how wonderful they were to work with and how thoughtful they were to provide so many details to make our stay special. The house is lovely and in the perfect peaceful place near to anything you might want to do. We highly recommend this vacation home!
