Overview

About the property

4 bedroom/3 bath main house; optional 1 bedroom/bath guest house 766952

Bruadair's (Scottish Gaelic for 'dream') open floor plan allows everyone to gather in a common space with water views abounding or retreat to your own nook while its exquisite new (optional) guest house (listing 766952) gives others privacy.

Three bedrooms and 2 baths are located on the main, living level while the spacious master bedroom is upstairs with its own large bath, shower and whirlpool tub. The optional guest house adds another bedroom and bath (separate rental 766952), which could bring the total to 5 bedrooms and 4 baths.

Bruadair has a beautiful deck overlooking the water, plus a large screened-in porch provides great breezes and water views, too. Glass doors highlight the views whether you are cooking, playing games, reading or watching television. Step out the glass sliders, three steps down the deck and the private beach awaits you.

With 2 kayaks and 4 bicycles included in the rental, touring the Bay, the estuaries or the Park is a breeze. Ospreys, herons, bald eagles, pelicans and other natural beauties are outside the door or tucked away in nearby estuaries where kayaking in a peaceful setting is magnificent.

Scotland Yards makes your stay easy. We provide guests with towels, linens, kitchen supplies, paper towels, soaps, shampoo and everything you need to truly get away. Just bring yourselves and your food and your personal effects.

Our guests frequently comment that the rarely want to leave once they arrive. For those who so choose to venture out, a lovely local winery, historic St Mary's City, various historical plantations and other destinations such as Solomon's Island, Leonardtown and St. George's Island provide entertainment.

Young children love the Calvert Marine Museum, about 30 miles away on Solomon's Island.

With a private beach in front while nestled in a wooded, small beach community, guests have the best of woods and water. This is not a boardwalk! But, If you want luxury accommodations, waves lulling you to sleep, kayaking and otherwise enjoying a secluded beach setting, Bruadair and its guest house beckon you.

For monthly rates from October - April, please inquire.

About Peggy Binzel

Hail from Duncan, Oklahoma but in love with the water. My dream is to restore Chesapeake Bay beach homes, return native landscaping and provide guests with a luxury beach home in a natural setting to relax, unwind, recharge and enjoy friends and family.

Peggy Binzel purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Peggy Binzel chose Point Lookout

Scotland is a magical place. Waking up on your own private beach every morning with native plants, flowers and the sound of the waves is priceless.

A lovely place for relaxing and exploring.

  • 5 of 5

Bruadair was an excellent home base for our explorations of Point Lookout and beyond. The house has a lovely setting right on its own piece of private beach. We found it to be clean, comfortable and spacious. The views are amazing from the sun's glorious rise to the spectacular starry night skies. We were new to the area and fell in love with all the natural attractions it has to offer. From beach combing to hiking to biking; it was the perfect fall getaway. We definitely plan on getting away to it again.

Clean, comfortable with gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend and the weather was beautiful.

Enjoyed the deck overlooking the water. The young folks had a

great time with the kayaks. Everything was very clean and the

rooms were nicely decorated. Will certainly plan to return at

another time.

Great Get Away Stay

  • 5 of 5

While the weather was rainy for most of our trip, we still got to enjoy the wonderful views and relaxing atmosphere of the community. The house was clean and everything worked as it should. The sun room was a great addition to enjoy the outdoors without having to worry about gnats, mosquito's or other bugs. Access to the beach is a few steps from the porch as well as the private pier. A 30 min drive gets you back to where you can get groceries, restaurants, and other shopping centers you're familiar with. You also have some local varieties if you didn't want to go back out that far. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a semi-local get away.

A perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Setting is amazing, especially enjoyed watching the sunrise without leaving my bed in the “glass “ room. Decor is elegant. All of our needs were anticipated and met. Room arrangement offers privacy for each branch of the family. Peggy was very helpful to work with. Highest recommendation. We would return as soon as possible!

Beautiful view and house!

  • 3 of 5

The beach and view are perfect! Only negative thing about the house is we have small kids and the louvered doors on the bedrooms and bathrooms do not provide much sound insulation. any noise travels throughout the house. This made for some sleepless nights.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that this guest loves the beach and the amazing view from this special beach house. We do have very asthetically beach-appropriate louvered doors. We note that the master bedroom is on the upper level so is separated from the other bedrooms. We would hate to get rid of the louvered doors. We could consider putting solid wood on one side of each door to keep the louvered look on the exterior side but provide more soundproofing. We rarely receive this complaint but we will put on our agenda adding additional soundproofing on the bedroom doors. We appreciate all our guests' respectful suggestions. We strive to do everything we can to make our guests' stay as close to perfect as it can be.

Nearest Beach
steps from the front door
Car: necessary

Scotland is rich in history; only 10 miles from the original capital of Maryland and 3 miles from Pt. Lookout State park - a Civil War POW site. For waterlovers, the Bay, the Potomac, the Patuxent and beautiful creek and estuaries abound. A perfect 'away' destination.
