Getting AroundWe are only 45 minutes from Washington D.C. You can either drive in or take the metro which is close to the D.C. boundary line. Other Things to NoteIf you are interested in fossils of the Chesapeake Bay - we strongly recommend that you visit the Calvert Marine Museum located in Solomon's Island, just 14 miles south of our home. You will discover a wealth of information about the very fossils you will find on our shores at the Museum. Fossils are the remains of ancient life, which are preserved for millions of years. They can be found potentially everywhere. In someone’s backyard, on a beach shoreline or high up in the Rocky Mountains - all the same they are still fossils. Fossils found along the Chesapeake Bay and on our beach are mostly from the Miocene era, (19 to 24 million years ago). These fossils are much younger than the dinosaurs, which became extinct sixty million years age. They are much older than man who first walked the Earth a couple of million years ago. There have been over 400 shells identified in the Calvert Cliff formations located directly near our property on the Bay. Of those 400, only 44 percent still live in the Chesapeake Bay. The scallop shell is one of the oldest and most decorative shells found along the shoreline of the Bay. These shells can vary in size between the smallest compared to the size of a dime; to some of the largest being 10 inches long. Shark Teeth The shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay is filled with all different kinds of shark’s teeth. Fossil records indicate that some of the first sharks lived some 300 million years ago. It is estimated that modern sharks had evolved between 70 million to 100 million years ago. Sharks are known for their speed and maneuverability in the water. Most species can swim at speeds of 20 to 30 (32 to 48 kilometers) miles per hour. Sharks are among the oldest living water creatures, and they have remained essentially the same since the modern sharks first appeared. Shark teeth are among the hardest of all organic materials, highly resistant to destruction by weather or wave action. Therefore you can find many washed up by waves on the shoreline of the Bay. (Look for something black and triangular). They vary in size, from barely visible to teeth 5 inches long - teeth of the great white shark. Sharks have an unlimited supply of teeth, which are formed in layered rows. These teeth are not set firmly in the jaws, but are positioned in the gums. No cavities, permanently missing teeth, or tooth-aches for a shark! If a tooth is lost it is quickly replaced by another. Any shark has numerous amount of teeth loss by the time is reaches adulthood. Don't be alarmed by the numerous teeth you find- remember these are about twenty million years old! Paleontologist discovered that many of the whale bones had scratches and scars by teeth of sharks. It would appear that Miocene sharks were attracted to the Chesapeake Bay by the young whales that made easy prey. The Chesapeake Bay stretches its beauty 195 miles from the Pennsylvania's Susquehanna River to the Virginia Capes. It is the largest bay in the United States, with the greatest number of tributaries (150) and more miles of shoreline (4,000) than the entire West Coast. The origin of this beautiful estuary dates back 20,000 years to the last ice age. A huge glacier fed the head waters of the Susquehanna, often referred to as the "mother of the Chesapeake", with a glacial melt, carving a deep valley through Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia. When the ice sheet began to melt approximately 18,000 years ago, the Susquehanna converged with the Potomac, the Rappahannock and the York Rivers spilling its force into the Atlantic. The Atlantic overflowed forcing the Susquehanna River mouth to retreat, giving birth to the Chesapeake Bay, a name giving to it by the Algonquin Indians. It meant "great shellfish bay". Early explores hoped the Bay and its rivers would lead them to the Pacific and ultimately, Asia. While they never found the Orient, they did discover a land rich in resources and ripe for the taking. The Bay served as their entrance into the new America. For centuries the Bay has provide man with a wealth or recreation activities, transportation means for importing and exporting worldwide products and livelihood for generations of fisherman and crabbers. The Chesapeake Bay male crab often referred to as "jimmies" is renowned worldwide for its abundance of delicious tender meat. Over 50 per cent of all crabs and soft shelled clams caught in the United States come from the Chesapeake Bay. In fact, each year the Chesapeake produces over 200 million pounds of seafood which equates to a value exceeding $100 million. Only the Pacific and Atlantic out produces the Bay. According to scientists, the freshwater tributaries, shallowness, low-lying wetlands and a wide portal to the sea account for the Bay's abundance of seafood. The Bay is also rich in Fossils from the Miocene era. Ten to twenty million years ago a shallow ocean covered Southern Maryland. The shells, bones and teeth of animals that inhabited the area either sank or were washed into the seas and were covered with mud or sand. When the Bay was developed by the drowning of the Susquehanna River Valley, it left what is now called the Calvert Cliffs, as a part of its eroded banks. These Cliffs are located on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake a few miles from Solomon’s Island. The Cliffs rise in height more than 100 feet and nearly all of the fossils found on the beach along Calvert Cliffs come from the Cliffs. It was here, on the Chesapeake, captive on a British ship in Baltimore harbor, that Francis Scott Key anxiously watched the bombardment of Fort McHenry and wrote the Star Spangled Banner. Yes, the Chesapeake is rich in history and culture and it is at your finger tips. Availability Calendar

    The "Sweet Spot" on the Bay - this charming 2 BR 1 Bath Cottage with water views is located in a private waterfront community, Long Beach in St. Leonard, MD, just half a block to the beach (which has a nice big shade tree). This cozy little cottage is super comfy and fully furnished with linens and towels. Kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and cooking gear including a crab pot so you can enjoy the Bay's traditional crab feast. Refresh in the outdoor shower after a day on the beach. Al-fresco dining on the back patio. The cottage comes with two kayaks for guests to explore the Bay by water. There are three sandy beaches in this lovely community for the enjoyment of property owners and renters; the largest is on the north side of the Flag Harbor marina (bring your boat!) and has a volleyball net, horse shoe pit, fire ring and picnic tables. The south beach is closest to the cottage, just at the end of the block - you can enjoy the sunset's afterglow on the bay and build a small fire on the beach while waiting for the stars to come out. A moonrise on the bay will take your breath away. You will find the lands of the Bay's Western Shore to be picturesque; tobacco barns in southern Maryland are unique to our region and have a long history in our rural landscape. Lots to do if you are not in the mood to relax on the beach. Inviting antique shops, boutiques, little art galleries and farm stands with local produce (get live crabs at the Chesapeake Bounty). Two state parks are to the South of the community - hike to Flag Ponds Nature Park, 500 acres of nature and interesting eco-systems, the trail head is just a couple of blocks from the cottage. A 10 minute drive takes you to Calvert Cliffs State Park with 15 miles of hiking trails, amazing cliffs and beaches - a fossil-hunter's delight. Further South you can visit the Cove Point Light House, Anne Marie Sculpture and Art Gardens, and Solomons Island (rent a boat to go fishing, hang at the Tiki Bar, enjoy a waterfront restaurant). Jefferson Patterson Park is just across Rt. 4 and has hosted tall ships, reenactments of battles from the War of 1812 and the annual Southern Maryland Celtic Festival and Highland gathering - their museum and live archaeological dig is open most days. Enjoy the white sands beach at Vera's on the Pax river or crack open some crabs in the open air restaurant on Broome's Island. Try a wine tour/tasting at the three local vineyards. Just up the road to the North you can visit Battle Creek Cypress Swamp Sanctuary, or go to the American Chestnut Land Trust for a guided canoe trip. All of this within 20 minutes of the cottage! South of Solomons Island, you cross the Patuxent River on the Thomas Johnson Bridge and enter historic St. Mary's County with the site of Maryland's birthplace, St. Clement's Island State Park, Sotterley Plantation, 4 lighthouse/museums, Summerseat Farm (17th century that now raises Buffalo), or historic St. Mary's City. The Loveville Amish Farm Auction is not to be missed, and the drive through Amish/Mennonite farm lands is scenic and peaceful. If you venture further North of the cottage to the twin Bay towns of Chesapeake Beach and North Beach you can indulge in a little gambling at the Rod 'n Reel's casino. You will also find equestrian centers, and golf opportunities and vineyards.

          The "Sweet Spot" on the Bay - this charming 2 BR 1 Bath Cottage with water views is located in a private waterfront community, Long Beach in St. Leonard, MD, just half a block to the beach (which has a nice big shade tree). This cozy little cottage is super comfy and fully furnished with linens and towels. Kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and cooking gear including a crab pot so you can enjoy the Bay's traditional crab feast. Refresh in the outdoor shower after a day on the beach. Al-fresco dining on the back patio. The cottage comes with two kayaks for guests to explore the Bay by water. There are three sandy beaches in this lovely community for the enjoyment of property owners and renters; the largest is on the north side of the Flag Harbor marina (bring your boat!) and has a volleyball net, horse shoe pit, fire ring and picnic tables. The south beach is closest to the cottage, just at the end of the block - you can enjoy the sunset's afterglow on the bay and build a small fire on the beach while waiting for the stars to come out. A moonrise on the bay will take your breath away. You will find the lands of the Bay's Western Shore to be picturesque; tobacco barns in southern Maryland are unique to our region and have a long history in our rural landscape. Lots to do if you are not in the mood to relax on the beach. Inviting antique shops, boutiques, little art galleries and farm stands with local produce (get live crabs at the Chesapeake Bounty). Two state parks are to the South of the community - hike to Flag Ponds Nature Park, 500 acres of nature and interesting eco-systems, the trail head is just a couple of blocks from the cottage. A 10 minute drive takes you to Calvert Cliffs State Park with 15 miles of hiking trails, amazing cliffs and beaches - a fossil-hunter's delight. Further South you can visit the Cove Point Light House, Anne Marie Sculpture and Art Gardens, and Solomons Island (rent a boat to go fishing, hang at the Tiki Bar, enjoy a waterfront restaurant). Jefferson Patterson Park is just across Rt. 4 and has hosted tall ships, reenactments of battles from the War of 1812 and the annual Southern Maryland Celtic Festival and Highland gathering - their museum and live archaeological dig is open most days. Enjoy the white sands beach at Vera's on the Pax river or crack open some crabs in the open air restaurant on Broome's Island. Try a wine tour/tasting at the three local vineyards. Just up the road to the North you can visit Battle Creek Cypress Swamp Sanctuary, or go to the American Chestnut Land Trust for a guided canoe trip. All of this within 20 minutes of the cottage! South of Solomons Island, you cross the Patuxent River on the Thomas Johnson Bridge and enter historic St. Mary's County with the site of Maryland's birthplace, St. Clement's Island State Park, Sotterley Plantation, 4 lighthouse/museums, Summerseat Farm (17th century that now raises Buffalo), or historic St. Mary's City. The Loveville Amish Farm Auction is not to be missed, and the drive through Amish/Mennonite farm lands is scenic and peaceful. If you venture further North of the cottage to the twin Bay towns of Chesapeake Beach and North Beach you can indulge in a little gambling at the Rod 'n Reel's casino. You will also find equestrian centers, and golf opportunities and vineyards. NOTE: IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS YOU CAN ALSO CONTACT THE OWNER AT - - - pattioehmke at gmail dot com.
