Enjoy coffee on your private deck surrounded by native plants, then wander down to the beach. Kayak the Bay or the many secluded creeks filled with wildlife and solitude. Or, bike down to Pt. Lookout Park, only a few miles away. Only 2 hours from Washington or Baltimore, make the Cottage your getway retreat - over and over.

About Peggy Binzel

Love urban life; also, love the isolated beach with amazing wildlife. Scotland is a welcome retreat from hectic city life.

Why Peggy Binzel chose Point Lookout

Scotland is a rare find. Rarely do you find an area that begins with beautiful forests and opens up onto fabulous beaches. Little traffic but only 2 hours from Washington or Baltimore. I discovered a jewel.

What makes this cottage unique

Sunrise over the Bay with morning coffee is heavenly. Walks on the beach. Take a 30 minute kayak ride or a 5 hours one - very convenient out the front door. Enjoy a tasting of good quality local wines at beautiful Woodlawn plantation just 10 miles away.

Perfect Getaway Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the cottage. It is so wonderfully functional and practical, plus pleasant and welcoming. We love the fully equipped kitchen, wood stove, and private space surrounding the cottage. The very short drive to Point Lookout State Park is a major bonus. We'll have to visit in the summer some time to take advantage of the bikes and kayaks. Thank you!

Our second time staying at Summerlee Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Every time we rent one of Peggy's properties we know we will have clean accommodations and luxury touches such as very nice towels :) We discovered her rentals a while back, and have rented this one twice now. as well as another larger house.

Although it is not necessarily a negative, keep in mind that the bed (while comfortable) seems kind of short in length. Maybe it's just us. but if this matters to you. perhaps confirm what the bed dimensions are.

The kitchen has nice pots and pans, a really awesome butcher's block antique table, and an adequate fridge and stove. We found the stove to be a little tricky. although we're used to gas. I think there was a different stove/oven combo when we rented previously, and the burners were very hot., which made for lots of pasta sauce popping out of the pan. as there was no "low". This oven and stovetop looks brand new, nice and shiny clean. I was glad I brought an oven thermometer, though, (baked cookies each night) as the oven part does run hot. The burners don't, however, so I could simmer sauce and soup to my heart's content this time.

The woodburning stove works great, and the wood provided was dry and clean.

We had all the privacy and quiet we could ask for, and enjoyed time walking the deserted beach that is just a stone's throw away.

Just doggone great!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy Chesapeake cottage was just what we needed. I stayed while doing a consulting job up the road in St. Mary’s City with my two pups. The stamped concrete floors and dark colored furnishings made it the best possible choice if you are traveling with 4 legged friends. great kitchen, too... with your own beach.

Beautiful location! Wonderful comfortable home and lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband and our 7 yr old son had the most wonderful time. The private beach and kayaking was amazing. The house was comfortable and the host and caretakers were so gracious and helpful. We already miss it hope to return again one day.

Summerlee Cottage

  • 5 of 5

OMG, this is such an amazing place, the weather, water, and sunshine were amazing. Peggy has a top notch crew that accented our stay with their personal service and attention. We have never stayed in a place such as this but will definitely return. The real difference was the communication, the place was great enough but the attention to our emails and phone calls were an 11. Fantastic job Peggy and crew and thank you for making our stay a very memorable one.
