Our beach getaway is perched on a 70-foot cliff overlooking the Chesapeake Bay near Solomons, MD. Relax at the house and soak up the view or stroll on the beach and hunt for prehistoric sharks' teeth.

The space

Our house is located in a secluded historic community called Scientists' Cliffs which abuts the archeologically significant Calvert Cliffs. Privacy and peaceful living are the watchwords of our community. The house was recently completely renovated and decorated with funishings that we feel bring out the unique character of the house and its setting.

Guest access

You can walk to the beach directly below our property and walk for several miles in either direction, depending on the tides. There is also a private beach you can drive to with a boat ramp.

Interaction with guests

We will reach out to you before your arrival to make sure you know where you are going and to give you a brief overview of the property and surrounding area. We will also check in with you after you leave to ensure that your visit was all that you wanted it to be.

Welcome to Scientists' Cliffs, a secluded gem of unsurpassed beauty on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay, the largest body of water of its kind in the US.

Please treat our house the way you'd treat the house of a close friend. We want you to be comfortable but we want you to respect our home and its furnishings. Please don't wear shoes inside the house--we don't! This will protect our floors and extend their life.

Please don't leave doors open to the outside as bugs will come in and take up residence inside along with you.

We do not permit smoking in and around the house. We would also request that you not host parties while staying at our house. We live in a quiet community, and we respect our neighbors' desire for solitude.

Please relax and enjoy the view and the peace and quiet!

George's house in Scientist Cliffs is lovely -- well laid out for a group to spend time together in the main living and dining room area, and with four clean, comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen was well stocked and allowed us to cook all of our meals at home. My extended family and I ( a group of 8) had an excellent vacation here! George was also very responsive to messages and provided detailed instructions for our use of the house. My only tip for visitors with very small children is that you will have to keep track of the kids at all times at the front of the house. The front yard gives directly onto a 70 foot drop, and the deck has some splinters and wobbly boards. George gave us full warning so we were all set, but just something to think about. We also did not have as much opportunity for swimming as we'd hoped, as the bay was full of jellyfish and the community pool was under construction in early July 2017. Still loved our vacation though, and we all enjoyed the house!

Beautiful, relaxing and very quiet place with spectacular views. From the deck we saw pods of dolphins - at least 50 - and a bald eagle. Also lots of hawks and a cow nose ray. Amazing! We really enjoyed grilling and eating there, and napping in the sun. The nearby beach was peaceful and not at all busy, best in the mornings and evenings, and we had a yummy crab lunch on the waterfront at the nearby (ish) Lighthouse Restaurant on Solomon's Island. Great views from the pretty sitting room and beds were suoer comfy too. Everything was also very clean and convenient.

The views here cannot be beat! You can watch ospreys diving for fish, work boats and all kinds of ships coming and going. The living area of the house is beautifully decorated with a wall of glass doors, so you still are connected with the outdoors when you must stay inside. Our favorite activity was looking for fossil shark teeth on the beach. We wanted a place where we could relax, unwind, and reconnect with nature. This cottage met our criteria!

My family and my brother's family enjoyed a fun and relaxing Memorial Day weekend at George's family house on the bay. We went hiking in nearby trails, went kayaking both on the bay and inlets off the PAX river, and BBQed with the bay as our backdrop. Wonderful!!! The house is beautifully decorated with plenty of room for our two small families. And the view is just amazing! George was super responsive and easy to work with throughout the reservation and checkin. We hope to come back again soon!!!!

Great house and a great host. George was very responsive and always had our comfort at the forefront. The house has a gorgeous view in a quiet and private community. The home was thoughtfully stocked in the kitchen (of course you will still need to bring your own food items), linens and bedding was also provided. The homes was super clean and ready for us upon arrival. There were addtional things in the garage for the kids to play with (archery set, and kayak/floats). There is nothing I would change about this stay. My family and I had a great stay and 100% recommend the home and the great host.

Always a joy - even when the weather is colder and rainy, the view and the peace and friendliness of the community make it an enjoyable weekend getaway.
