Overview

Photos and Description of the Tall Timbers vacation house rental

One-level, 2bedroom +Den, Easement to Water with Views of Woods and Water

Tall Timbers, the community, is actually a forgotten Maryland treasure where time stands still. It consists of two rows of houses situated between the Potomac River and a dense timbered forest. We are located 3 miles east of the Piney Point/ St. George's Island Bridge off Maryland Route 249 not far from where the Potomac River flows into the Chesapeake Bay.

This immaculate single level woodland home is both lovely and comfortable. It is a modern year-round retreat is equipped with linens and any other items you might expect in a well equipped home including Smart TVs, Cable, Netflix, Wi-Fi, and docking station. Beautiful interiors, nice woodland views and cozy central heat are complemented by electric fire place inside and a fire pit outside. Two of the three bedrooms are outfitted with comfortable queen-size beds, the third is set up as a den with 2nd fireplace (battery operated candles) and reclining sofa that transforms into a full bed.

You need to bring cloths and personal fishing poles.

The greenhouse-room is a great place to work on puzzles or family projects that will not need to be moved for dinner. Our cottage sits back from the water with spectacular sunset views afforded between the houses in front of us. A water access easement runs from our house to the river bulkhead.

If you must do laundry on vacation do it in a room with a view and own washing machine and dryer. Watch the animals that live within the forest from the many windows. The area is rich with birds, deer, turtles, and squirrels.

Outside: Fire pit, charcoal barbecue, picnic tables, even the workshop, fish table, and screened pavilion can be made available. Off-street parking you ask? There is plenty of room for the boat or RV in the driveway.

Tall Timbers Private Beach Club is short walk from the cottage. From our front windows you can see four miles across the water to the night-lights of Virginia. The river is so wide at this point that it appears to be the Bay.

Have you been to St. Mary's City (Colonial Historic Interpretive Park)? It is an easy 15 miles drive and a wonderful place to visit for the entire family! A little further down the road is Point Lookout where you can catch a ferry to Chesapeake Bay Islands, visit the historic Coast Guard Station, the Civil War Hospital Site, or see where the Potomac Rivers and Pautuxent Rivers empty into the Chesapeake Bay. To read more about our area we are in area known as Southern Maryland, along the shores of the National Parks scenic water-way.
