Escape city life and come enjoy all the Chesapeake Bay has to offer. Only 45 mins from D.C., this bayfront home is steps from the water with your own private dock. Located in a quiet neighborhood of locals and weekenders, it's only a 5 minute drive to Herrington Harbor or North Beach.

Curl up on the couch with a book, catch your own crabs (seasonal), star-gaze on the dock, or pick up produce from the local farmer's market and make yourself a gourmet meal in the large fully equipped kitchen.

The space

This craftsman 1,900 sq ft home is so inviting that you may not want to leave! The space offers an open living room, dining space, and kitchen with magnificent views of the bay. The fully equipped chef's kitchen has a large granite top peninsula, six-top gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishes, flatware and other essential cooking equipment. The kitchen is stocked with some of the basic seasonings to aide you on your culinary adventures. You can chop your vegetables and enjoying the view!

The master bedroom has french doors that open to the main living room. This room has a queen sized bed and lots of closet space. The next room has a full size bed, dresser and small closet. The third bedroom has a twin-sized trundle bed that can sleep two people. The loft has a pullout queen-sized sofa bed for additional guests. There is one large bathroom with a shower and vanity.

The living room has large windows with unobstructed views of the bay. And, of course, you have your own private dock to view the stars, fish, lounge or watch our skilled neighborhood raptors catch their lunch! The boat lift is available for an additional fee (ask us about it). The woodburning stove is only available to guests with experience (additional cleaning fee of $50).

We also just added a 4K Roku TV -- you can connect to Sling (cable), Netflix or Amazon Prime.

Guest access

You have access to the entire house, front yard and private dock. We've stocked the house with board and card games for when the weather is less than ideal. We have lawn games for when the weather is nicer! The woodburning stove is available on a case by case (and an additional $50 cleaning fee).

We have a family pass (5 people) to North Beach beach area (normally $17pp). At this beach, you can rent paddle boards, kayaks, bikes and other gear.

Interaction with guests

We live in the area, and are a short drive away if anything serious comes up. We will do our best to respond as quickly as possible to your questions through the Airbnb app or by phone.

You will need to use Magnolia street to access Bay Front Ave. There is a private road that accesses Bay Front Ave closer to the property, but this road is not ours! -- it belongs to a neighbor. We (and guests) are not allowed to drive on it.

Trash collection happens early on Friday morning. If your visit falls on this day, we would ask you to please pull out the trash/recycling cans on Thursday night to our next door neighbor's house. The truck does not come all the way down our road. Then you will need to return the cans to their original location on Friday afternoon.

If you are an experienced at woodburning stoves, we will consider use of the stove on a case-by-case basis (please email for more information).

*** We have a three night minimum. And we give preference to longer stays during the summer months.

The private dock is all yours for swimming, crabbing, and fishing. Please be safe when swimming off the dock. :-) ALL WATER ACTIVITIES ARE UNDERTAKEN AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Great little house right on the bay! We loved waking up to the water views each day. Rachel and Graig were a pleasure to rent from!

Location, location, location!!! Doesn't get much better. On the bay with a private dock. We had a very relaxing time here. We would stay here again in a heart beat. Hosts did a great job as well.

Rachel was there to greet us and show us around. The house is a total postcard. Clean and spacious with all we needed. The sunrise is breathtaking. We definitely reccomend it.

We had an amazing time at the beachfront home and will try and stay here again as we visit the area often. The waterfront home is simple yet large. It is an older house with upadates right in the Chesapeake. The open floor concept was very likable for the entire family. We found ourselves relaxing to the sound of the bay during the day and cozy by a fire in the evening. This is definitely an escape, there isn’t much else around but hour trips to family in Annapolis, Baltimore and DC were accessible. Excellent location for a getaway

Rachel and Graig are excellent hosts. They go above and beyond in taking care of their guests and made sure to contact us before, during, and after our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. The property is clean and full of useful amenities. Neighborhood is quiet and easy to get to. They also provided a binder of helpful information about the property and the surrounding area. Check-in was easy and hassle-free. We would definitely stay here again.

Rachel and Graig have a beautiful, comfortable home in a gorgeous setting, with all the comforts of home --and MORE!! Very close to Herrington Harbor South, where are our son and his bride were being married. Also close to everything going on in Chesapeake Beach, without being caught in that traffic, unless you want to be --tranquility reigns in North Beach! Saw a bald eagle swoop by one morning, with a huge fish in its talons --breakfast for the family, nesting just a bit north of the place!! A Blue Heron is nested on the next dock south, and posed boldly for us. Three docks further south is an osprey nest, which looked like Mom/Dad had fully trained a couple "teenagers" in the skills of aerial fishing. Quite a full house. We will be back, as soon as we have even a weak excuse to get away!

Rachel And Graig User Profile

DC/MD transplants: I grew up in South Dakota; Graig in upstate New York. We've lived in the vibrant Truxton Circle neighborhood for the past 6 years, and recently bought a home on the Chesapeake Bay in North Beach, MD. After staying in our first Airbnb in Europe three years ago, we drank the kool-aid and decided to become hosts. We usual stay in Airbnbs when we travel and our goal is to learn from those experiences to improve our hosting skills.
We like to eat and make a point to eat our way through our travels. To burn off those extra calories, Graig enjoys swimming and biking. I get my extra energy out on the soccer field in a Sunday co-ed league. And we both enjoy our careers. I work for a large non-profit as a video editor and animator; saving the world one video at a time. Graig knows all things computer and works in IT. He doubles as my on-call tech support.

We would love to host you on your visit to beautiful Washington, DC or North Beach, MD.
