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.

Le logement

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.

Accès des voyageurs

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.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

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!

This place is great. The view of the bay is perfect. The yard drops right off down a cliff, so we just told the kids to stay away from that back yard. The house is comfortable and nicely decorated. You can walk to two small beaches from the house and look for fossils and shark teeth. There is a larger beach that's a five minute drive away and really nice. The hosts provided everything we needed. There are lots of restaurants and things to do close by.

We had a great time at George's place. He was a very responsive host who provided a detailed and helpful welcome packet that answered all of our questions prior to arrival. The house is fabulously appointed - George has excellent taste! - and very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is smartly outfitted with nearly everything you could need. And the VIEW! It was nothing short of mesmerizing to watch the bald eagles and ospreys fish just beyond the backyard. We would definitely and without reservation recommend this place to anyone without small children ---but I have to note that it's not a great place for little kids for three reasons. First, the backyard runs right up to the 70 foot cliff and there is no fence, so we couldn't really enjoy the backyard while the kids (3yo and 6yo) were back there. Also, the deck railing isn't kid-friendly - they could easily fall through. And while there is a patch of beach that is walkable, it's not ideal even at low tide due to lots of rocks and a long stairway to get there. Schlepping kids and gear down there is more trouble than it's worth, so you're left to drive to the big beach (i.e. more schlepping). But again, if you're a group of adults (or fearless parents) looking for a gorgeous getaway, we couldn't recommend George's place more highly.

Dear Kate, Many thanks for your excellent and candid feedback. We're glad you really enjoyed the house. I take your points to heart: I am in the process of renovating the deck--the wood is old and dry and prone to splinters. There isn't much we can do about the Cliff--it's a stunning natural feature and we don't want to mar the view with a fence. You'll note that almost no cliff-front properties are fenced. I agree the location might not be optimal for very small children. Our kids have loved the Bay since they were very small, and we have had to be vigilant with them and the Cliffs. Again, thank you for your comments.

Second time staying there, everything was perfect. Had a lot of fun revisiting Scientist's Cliffs, I lived there as a kid while my dad was doing research at CBL.

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!!!!
