Recently renovated 2 BR,1 bath waterfront (downstairs) apartment, with full kitchen and bath, loaded with amenities from coffee, cookware, charcoal grill to billiards, chess, crabbing and kayaks. At the end of the day, gather around the stone paved waterside firepit for your favorite grilling foods or to just stair into the fire. With a spare deep water slip and free parking, you're free to come by land or sea with food, swimming/fishing gear. We take care of the rest. Enjoy the peaceful way of SOMD waterfront living.
Short Term Rental (STR) has always been the focus to our downstairs renovations. We've separated and closed off downstairs from upstairs, added a brand new modern kitchen including a washer/dryer combo, and completely replaced all flooring. We've added high quality memory foam bedding, new modernized furniture, but have kept certain antiques, which blend very well with the rustic/wood motif of the apartment, all in an effort to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible.
...we've even added insulation between the floors, to ensure any sound between the two is minimized.
Your waterfront view of Little Kingston Creek is second to none, from inside the apartment, or from outside on the private/covered patio. Outside common areas include anything in the back yard (waterfront side of house), private pier, kayaks, cornhole, and of course our new paved firepit!
...it's a short paddle (15 min) with the Kayaks, or walk (1 mile) to Myrtle Point Park located just outside the inlet to our creek. Myrtle Point park is a great place for swimming, and has miles of nature trails to walk.
Historic Solomon's Island is just across the river from our creek inlet, and a short 5 minute drive from the Blue Heron apartment. Solomon's island is known for it's history as a fishing community and to this day sponsor's numerous fishing and waterman events, including fishing tournaments and docking contests. Solomon's is best known today for its many seafood restaurants and tourism community lifestyle.
All waterside activities are common access amongst, owners, LTR tenants, and Blue Heron guests. These include all (private) pier activities (kayaks), and firepit. The Blue Heron private covered porch includes the area directly in front of the apartment, but does not include the (left side) area in front of the garage. Two roadside parking spots are reserved for Blue Heron guests, along with private entrance walkway to Blue Heron, and detailed in the checkin guide.
Karen and I (owners) live upstairs with our two dogs, and are nearly always (literally) available in person for any questions or needs.
...of course, we are ALWAYS available through text/call!
When you arrive you'll notice the surrounding areas have recently been developed with single family homes and townhouses, but as you turn onto our lane which leads back through the woods to our six-home community, it's like you've entered the "twilight zone" and discovered a little piece of paradise hidden away from all the growing congestion.
As the name suggests you'll find lots of wildlife in our little community, including a couple of "Blue Herons", Ospreys, ducks, geese, and even a couple of Bald Eagles have a nest close by.
Getting around is easy...
By land, we are 1 mile away from one of the two largest road arteries (Rt 2-4) headed into and out of St Mary's county, as well as "Three Notch Road (MD235). We're just minutes from both Solomons Island, MD and all the California, MD shopping centers and restaurants.
By water, we're near the mouth of the Patuxent River, just north of the Solomons Island (Rt 2-4), aka Gov Thomas Johnson Bridge.
