Other things to note
Affordable Fishing Boat and sailing lesson charters. Double Kayak on Patuxent River. Please bring only one vehicle as off street parking is limited to my cars and yours. If you wish to ride the local bus from DC, I can pick you up.
There is absolutely no smoking, even on wooded trails. No climbing or digging on the Cliffs as it is extremely dangerous. My home is not directly on the Cliffs as deep erosion has occurred leaving other Cliff Homes sliding off while you sleep. So no problem here. The best night's sleep you'll ever have.
Quiet is maintained here at night but you are welcomed to my deck for teleworking, cocktail parties, meetings, oyster roasts, crab feasts and romance and especially my double wide rope hammock.
Your wee ones may like to snuggle there too but please, not without you. Blankets abound. A sea of stars are visible here as there is little light pollution. This is the perfect place to propose. The beach at low tide go for miles. The Cliffs have stairways that avail a view across the Bay for 7 miles to the little Choptank River to the east. You will have access to all of the beach as it is privately owned by myself and other Scientists Cliffs members.
There is a wood stocked woodstove downstairs and a fireplace that spans two rooms upstairs to keep you cozy. Please ask for instructions before using these during the cooler months. Please.
No cats. Dogs are allowed IFF their nails are clipped and they are flea-dipped.
You may cook on my grill. A new refrigerator, toaster oven, coffeemaker, microwave for downstairs guests. Mine is forever full! In thecwinter, my deck provides a great fridge and seating area for over 12 additional guests.

Retired science teacher who has circumnavigated 24 countries about the world by sailboat. Avid reef diver and sailor. Enjoys fossil hunting the beach.
Favorite places were French Polynesia, Argentina, Nova Scotia, Vanuatu, Tonga, Fiji, New Zealand, Malaysia, Palau, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand. I now race hot smaller yachts in Solomons on Wednesdays.
I live on the premises and love to cook foreign specialties in Thai, Indian, French, Southern MD and Italian cuisine.
Even though I am a serious yacht and dinghy racer, I emphasize relaxation for my guests. I can provide cooking lessons, massage, yoga, stretching, breathing and meditation techniques. I also provide a double ocean kayak which will accommodate a young child as well. Life preservers are provided.
I also have a younger partner, Mark Gyorgy, who is the race governor for Southern Maryland sailing Association, who can teach sailing on his Tartan racing Wicked Good or Buccaneer, Kick 'em Jenny. Each of us have over 50 years of boating experience.
A healthy lifestyle starts within the first minute you arrive at my home. You will feel you have shed worries and pounds within a day's time. My home provides the perfect respite for a telework. Many have had corporate meetings, reunions and retreats here.
Wouldn't life be great if we spent a little of every day truly living it?? You can definitely do it here!
My motto: "Do something every day that scares you just a little!
