About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

Savor dramatic penthouse views in your own private beach house. This light-filled four-story house offers the best in outdoor luxury living. Surrounded by glass and balconies on every level, Kentigern provides bedrooms with private balconies and great gathering spaces, all in one home. Enjoy the fun of your group and then retreat to your own space. Fall asleep to the sound of waves in the background. Wake up to fabulous sunrises over the Chesapeake Bay. This is a house you won’t want to leave.

Kentigern is sited on its own 2 acre sandy lot with a beach at the south end. For the adventurer, 2 kayaks on premise are provided for guest use. Kayak directly on the Chesapeake Bay or in the quiet solitude of one of the creeks where you and the herons may be the only guests. This house is an away destination: Herons are joined by osprey, bald eagles, pelicans and the occasional dolphin or two.

Scotland is steeped in history, too. St. Mary’s City, 10 miles away, is the original capital of Maryland. The area dates back to the 1600s and was one of the early colonies. Only 80 miles away is the nation’s capital, Washington, DC – if you can drag yourself away from the beautiful beach setting. Point Lookout Park, a Civil War POW camp and now a large park and campground, is only a short bike ride away. Nestled between the Bay and the Potomac River, the Park is worth an expedition.

Return to Kentigern again and again.

Something Special

  • 5 of 5

It was a very long way from Chattanooga for the travelers but the day had been a strikingly beautiful one. Nature had just begun to unfold into a new season and the mountains evoked a pride which moved our spirits, we were glad to be Americans and living in this country. We arrived in the dark but there was a welcoming warmth emitting from the lights left on in the house. We remembered the elevator and in two trips, we were in that wonderful kitchen and then on up to the third floor bathroom. Our move- in was complete! I peeped into the bedroom, all white and pristine with soft lights bouncing off the numerous windows and the sound of the waves , lapping land just outside the doors. Heaven!

After a wonderful rest on a very good bed, we breakfasted and ventured out to look around. The grounds were simple and uncontrived but obviously there had been careful considerations to renters and their enjoyment of the property, Kayaks, bikes, chairs, even the way the house sits on the property. There is natural beauty every place the eye falls. We appreciated that the authenticity of this spot was in no way compromised by flashy beach clutter. We loved it!

The rest of our family arrived and there was ample room for everyone with little nooks to visit in. Lovely! The skies were heavy and there was rain with wind but it did not hamper our comfort or peace at Kentigern. The Tennessee family members and the Maryland family all had a wonderful and relaxing time. We walked in the Chesapeake mist, on her beaches and found driftwood and glass and smooth little pebbles. We hiked around the friendly neighborhood and visited the local interests which were just wonderful. A plus must be mentioned ... Rob and Bob were so kind and helpful and fun. We like Marylanders very much! We chose this lovely piece of America because Scotland Yard is a favorite place of our daughter and husband who are living in Frederick. These two know a good thing.! We are so happy we made the trip! Thank you Peggy for sharing this place.

Beautiful home and property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay, I cannot say enough good things. The house was fabulous with large well appointed living areas very modern. The large kitchen has updated appliances a six burner range, and eating space for 13. The decks offer panoramic views, of the bay. The private beach is only steps from the house. Truly an awesome place.

Third time there and it's still wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I can never get enough of the views from the living level of the house. You can be content just staying in and enjoying the outdoors from the decks! The beach, bikes, and kayaks, and nearby State Park are just bonuses.

Kentigern is simply amazing. Views for days from every room in the house, we didn't want to leave! We stayed as a couple but can't wait to bring friends and family back. Thank you, Peggy, for another great stay in Scotland!

The best of the best!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit but my first visit to this house. We loved it in so many ways. Definitely the elevator was helpful for one of our guests, in terms of her being able to manage her personal items.

We loved the layout of the house, the kitchen and everything. We were able to congregate and fellowship but we also had places and spaces where we could have quiet moments to ourselves. We felt safe! We were able to relax! We built a fire outside and we used the bikes. We also went walking as well. Kate sent us to the farmers market (Thank you Kate!) where we enjoyed, coffee, pumpkin bread (to die for), salad greens, and WHISKEY(to take home to the husbands)! We wished the market had had fruit but it was delightful.

Kate! Bob! Rob! This family was key to our overall experience! They were very supportive when we had concerns or issues that can often can occur during travel. Anyone who has a problem with this house has a problem because nothing could be better!!!
