Bright & cheery 1 bedroom waterfront apartment nestled on the banks of the St. Mary's River. Amazing, dreamy views. It's a sweet spot to relax and enjoy a quiet get-away or launch a kayak, take a walk, enjoy great food cuisine. We sit next to St. Mary's College of MD and Historic St. Mary's City. You may see college sailing races, crew teams rowing, or the historic Maryland Dove sailing down the river. It's lovely here fall, winter, spring, summer! SUNSETS!
“For the better part of the last ten years my wife & I have celebrated our June anniversary somewhere on Maryland water. This year for our 31st anniversary I chose St. Mary’s as our destination. We both love history, being around water and other outdoor activities; hiking, biking and kayaking. After reading the reviews of this apartment I booked it, only hoping things were as described and shown in the pictures. Well, we were not disappointed, as this is simply a spectacular setting on the banks of the St. Mary’s River, with a view across the cape of St. Mary’s College. Everything was as described, and in person it was even better; the beautiful decoration and design of the apartment, the spacious kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom, not to mention the many personal touches and extra amenities. Theresa was in constant touch, providing us with ideas for dining, detailed directions to the apartment, and even going out of her way to purchase perhaps the most delicious muffins ever for our first breakfast. The space out on the boat dock was simply perfect, whether we used it during the day for reading, protected from the sun by the shade sails or enjoying a few glasses of wine at night in the glow of the mini string lights, creating the PERFECT ambience to relax after a day of sightseeing. Our trip didn’t end without Theresa providing one more suggestion - traveling through Solomon’s Island and stopping by Lotus Kitchen for a breakfast croissant and delicious Key Lime pie! It really was the most perfect stay - thank you!”
We offer a very tiny cottage built in the 1940’s. In the community of Bon Haven, the cottage is located right up the street from the South River. Guests may use the community gazebo and boat ramp. We offer a boat slip next to the ramp that is suitable for a small runabout that draws minimal water depth. There is RV hookup, a fire pit and a large grill for your use at the cottage. Bring your kayak or canoe. The access to the South River is walking distance away!
“Such a lovely cottage on a beautiful piece of property. Walking distance to the river with a gorgeous view. Every amenity you could think of, and an absolutely fantastic Nights sleep. Just the get away needed! Close to everything, yet feels as if you’re in the country.”
