1500 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Patrick And Annie
6 Guests . 3 Bedrooms . 1 Bathroom


Experience the Chesapeake Bay waters from your very own front row seat at Murphy Point on the Chesapeake! Watch dolphins, turtles, sea rays, crabs and gamefish forage for food on one side, and waterfowl prowl the shallow side. Surrounded by water on three sides, the living area is 1300 sq feet with an indoor walk up/utility area on the first floor. The layout is open floor plan with kitchen, dining and living room facing the Chesapeake with stunning views out the large atrium doors. This property offers a 2nd level wrap around deck with water views on 3 sides. Fish feed on the surface before your eyes. Crab or fish from the property. A birder’s paradise—adjacent to marshes, and tidal pools lee-side of the property. Regular residents include diving ducks and dabblers, egrets, blue heron, sea gulls, gannets & terns. Osprey nest within sight and a bald eagle visits late afternoons. Launch the kayaks from the private beachand paddle to attractions north and south. Take a swim or float in the shallow 4-foot water next to the property, or sit on the deck and watch ships roll down the channel.

Only 30 minutes to Washington DC and Annapolis. Locally it's a short walk or bike ride to the boardwalk/pier or shops, restaurants, and wine bar. Fine dining just 3 blocks away. Chesapeake Beach water park and charter boat fishing 2 miles south. Herrington Harbor 4 miles north. Stop by the Bay History Museum, walk to the farmer's market Friday eve where antique cars gather. Take in the summer concert series on the pier 2nd Saturday of summer months, or see free family movies all summer long on the 10 ft. high screen on the beach. Into night life? There's bingo, gaming and slots at many establishments within walking distance, as well as live music venues up and down the western shore. Cars are not necessary thanks to the Beach Trolley Association. Beach Trolley runs from Chesapeake Beach, through North Beach, up to Deale and back with a fare of only 25 cents per ride all summer. Bayfest live entertainment and crafts 4th weekend in August. September brings free campfires on the beach. Plan your vacation now for “Bay Galle”, the envy of North Beach.

The Murphy Property was established in 1979. Patrick Murphy and Annie Murphy Roberts carry the legacy from their father, James Michael 'Mike' Murphy. Mike Murphy designed the Smithsonian American History Museum and oversaw construction & maintenance of many Smithsonian buildings in DC for over 20 years before retiring at the house in North Beach to conduct oyster research under grants from Univ. of MD and Univ. of NC. During World War II, he worked as a physicist on the Manhattan project at Los Alamos. In 1986, he designed/engineered the building to withstand hurricane force winds with a 12-telephone pole foundation driven 34 feet into the ground. A category 4 hurricane (Isabel) has since passed in 2003 without disturbing the solid construction. He also engineered the tidal pool in the rear of the property to attract wildlife and serve as a boat launch. Patrick Murphy is an avid fisherman and retired small businessman. Annie Murphy Roberts is a health care provider.
