The desire to retreat is probably a part of our DNA as we live our day to day life in a constant state of stress and disorder, so the first thing you may discover is the lack of all that is normal. The sounds of silence, punctuated with the quiet and cheerful noises of nature, will be a boon to sore ears and tired souls. When was the last time you were able to hear the winds whispering through the trees or see a mama bird leaning over to feed eager mouths in the nest? As the peaceful scenery unfolds before you and you begin to learn the difference between isolation and being lonely, the best part of your getaway is about to begin.
Inside of our Secluded Vacation Rentals in Annapolis
The interiors of our isolated rentals in Annapolis are designed to welcome our guests, offering comfort and cheer in every room of the properties. Kitchens with updated appliances and views of the landscape that will take your mind off the chores, dining areas that will seat every member of your party, and living rooms, some with fireplaces, others without, but all containing a warmth that doesn’t depend on fire. Retreating to the bedrooms every night will be a joy. On warmer nights, sleeping with the windows open will have the sounds of nature lulling you to sleep. Outside there will be more seating areas for late-night talks or early morning sunrise viewing and in some properties, a firepit built to gather around and exchange stories under the light of a billion stars. Private flower gardens, all-season porches, and a sense of peace and belonging that many guests wait a lifetime to find; all can be discovered in one of our At Home Annapolis isolated and secluded hideaways!
Quiet Adventures in Annapolis
As beautiful as our secluded hideaways are, we doubt that you will want to spend every minute of your stay not venturing out to see what adventures Annapolis has to offer. Chances are you will want to explore the quiet places, the hidden spaces, and the serene spots that allow you to enjoy the beauty of the region without being crowded. Take a short drive inland to Glen Echo and explore the Clara Barton House, located at 5801 Oxford Road, and learn about this early healthcare worker who sacrificed so much to make lives simpler for future nurses. Quietly beautiful, the serene nature of this special place speaks to everyone who walks in its doors. Glen Echo is nearly an hour away from your At Home Annapolis getaway, but the magic of this house makes it worth the drive.
If your explorations make you hungry, there is no need to drive all the way back to Annapolis to sate your hunger, especially knowing that Wild Tomato, located at 7945 Macarthur Boulevard in nearby Cabin John, offers a full menu of feature dishes that include burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, and pasta. We do not want to choose a favorite, as every bite of every meal we have tried at Wild Tomato is better than the one before it, and when you think it can’t get any better—SURPRISE! Their expansive sweet endings menu will have you wanting to eat dessert first. They offer the simple (a yellow cupcake topped with chocolate frosting and sprinkles), the sublime (a chocolate cream pie martini made with layered tiers of chocolate pudding, graham cracker crumbles, and whipped cream), and everything in between!
A Walk in the Park
Sometimes the smallest of adventures have the biggest of impacts, and a walk in Truxtun Park, 273 Hilltop Lane, is the perfect example. Offering well-maintained paths that lead visitors into the serene depths of the woods that are a part of the park, it may feel as if you have the park all to yourself—with the exception of the wildlife that makes its home here, of course! The more populated areas also feature a splash pad for summer adventures with children, a colorful playground, and the occasional hiker or jogger walking or running by with their pets on a leash beside them. Animal lovers are drawn to this tranquil stretch of land, and life just does not get any better than this!
When you jump at the slightest noise and find yourself resorting back to bad habits you gave up long ago, you’ll know it’s time to treat yourself to one of our isolated rentals in Annapolis. Reserve yours today!
