A cozy sanctuary surrounded by cicadas, frogs, rabbits, lizards, and constant birds. Minutes from the water and less than two miles from St. Mary's College. An easy drive to the NAS base. Antiques and quirky arrangements of odd objects, combined with plants and surrounded by nature gives this home a unique sweetness. I am a busy college professor, and this is my home. If you are looking for a pristine sterile place, this is not it. If you want to share my sweet home, you are most welcome.

The space

I am an artist and like objects with texture and character. You'll notice small installations scattered around the place with old books, keys, stones, occasional bones. Many of these are gathered from my extensive travels as a dancer and teacher.

The place is just off the very small main road. It is set back enough that the trees make it practically invisible. There is an occasional jet flying overhead, but it's generally quite quiet. There are good windows that cancel out most of the road sound.

I live here, and work full time at the college less than two miles away. I keep the place tidy, but it is not the kind of sterile clean of some air bnbs I've stayed at that are strictly for guests.

The place is available to rent as a full house on weekends as well (see my other listing). There is a big back yard and if you have a larger group, I have tents you are welcome to set up. And a couch someone can sleep on.

Guest access

Full access except for my room. That includes the kitchen, living room, screened in sun porch, outdoor porch, the yard, and the basement for washing and drying. There is an outdoor barbecue if you want to barbecue.

Interaction with guests

As much as desired so long as it doesn't conflict with my work. We will be sharing the house aside from your bedroom.

I was attending a wedding at SMCM, and it was perfect being just over a mile away. The house was quaint and nothing fancy, but felt very "home-y" for a quick weekend away. Daniel was prompt in terms of check in information, and anything else we might need. Overall great stay!
