Overview

About the property

1 1/2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

If you love a small but creative and well-appointed beach house directly on the water - one with modern amenities and an amazing screened porch, Kentigern's 'Shed' (built on the site of the former shed) is for you (1 queen bedroom plus one queen murphy bed and one bath). This 2 story modern beach house is newly built and perfect for a couple or a small party. The house has everything you really need for a relaxing weekend away or vacation.

Situated directly on Chesapeake, hear the waves while you cook, read or relax; see diverse wildlife including, herons, swans, ospreys, bald eagles, and pelicans through expansive glass windows or from the screened-in porch. Or, grab a beach chair or towel and head for the sandy beach. With two kayaks and 2 bicycles provided with the rental (more can be rented for an additional fee, if needed), Kentigern's Shed is a spot you won't want to leave. Enjoy local oysters, a weekend wine tasting at nearby Woodlawn plantation, kayak, fish, sunbathe or just kick back and relax.

A short-bike ride away is Point Lookout State Park, a Civil War site. Today the park, which is located at the intersection of the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River, hosts miles of protected land set aside for biking, kayaking, boating, fishing, camping or enjoying nature as well as a museum that provides a historical perspective on the region. Or charter a boat at one of many local marinas for a day of fishing on the Bay. Another nearby historical site is St. Mary's City (10 miles), the original capital of Maryland. Visitors are 25 minutes from dining and shopping on Solomon's Island or in historic Leonardtown. Or enjoy one of several local marina restaurants. Want a day trip away? All that the nation's capital has to offer is a short 80 miles away.

Collect shells and beach glass while walking miles along the sandy beach. So close to Washington and other major cities, yet so far!

Beautiful little home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the Shed! The home is small but plenty of space for 2 people. There is a small fire pit and charcoal bbq that we used both nights. There's just something about sitting in front of a fire on the beach; completely relaxing!

Once again.....

  • 5 of 5

Once again I have had the pleasure of staying in one of Peggy's houses! I love the design flare she has in each of her units and can't wait to stay at a different one next year! One of these days the weather will be nice enough to use kayaks, we were able to use the bikes and had a nice ride to Point Lookout! This house is perfect for a couple!

Wonderful light and setting; beautiful little house

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our family of four (2 little kids) and our dog. We stayed in the off season and had the entire beach to ourselves. The house is cozy, beautiful and petite, perfect for a week getaway. My only improvement would be some smaller glasses or cups for little ones (only huge glasses and wine glasses currently.

Cozy, modern, beach side getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at The Shed. The house was clean, comfortable, and steps from the beach. It's a fun place and I highly recommend it.

A very nice property

  • 4 of 5

The Shed was just as advertised. We especially enjoyed the location. We did have problems with the keypad on the entry door. There were several times we thought we might not gain reentry. More explicit directions for how the keypad works would have been helpful or possibly it was not functioning well.

Owner's Response: We are delighted these guests enjoyed their stay at the Shed, a special property on the Bay. But, please dear guests, ee ask you not to wait until a review to express a problem you're having. We have local property managers specifically to address any challenges a guest might face. We look forward to many more happy guests.
