This property was originally constructed in approximately 1911 as a cottage on dune line along the beach in Willoughby Spit. Between 2009 and 2015 we meticulously restored and modernized this historic bay front cottage. It now features a main house on the second and third floors that is a family home for the property owner, a carriage house, a courtyard apartment home, and a ground floor luxury beach front apartment home.
All utilities are included with the rent (even cable and internet service). Security deposit is equal to 1-month's rent with approved credit.
This property has seen a great deal of history and has been a part of sea-trade along the Chesapeake Bay since the early 1900's. Not only has this home experienced its share of activity along the bay over the past 104 years but the neighborhood was created by The Great Coastal Hurricane on August 22, 1806. A few blocks from the Poseidon is the spot where President Abraham Lincoln came ashore to plan the Battle of Norfolk during the Civil War. From our private beach we still see commercial and naval ships as well as commercial watermen plying the historic Chesapeake Bay and still hear fog horns from their vessels.
From our private beach, the fishing, crabbing, clamming, sailing, and kayaking is outstanding. Shared property amenities include private landscaped yard with courtside deck, beachfront deck, beachfront gazebo, courtside patio with patio furniture, outdoor beach shower, decked pathways to beach, seating area around fountain sculpture of Poseidon, and outdoor recreational kitchen that is perfect for bar-b-que's and fish cleaning. On-site parking provided.
The Beach Front rental is truly magnificent and unique. Our understanding is that this part of the original home was a gathering spot for rowdy commercial sailing captains that moved goods between Norfolk and Baltimore as well as an alleged meeting spot for Rum Runners in the 1920's. It is a 1-bedroom apartment home that contains nearly 1,200 square feet of living space. Features include wood floors throughout, plaster walls/ceilings, recessed ceiling lighting, sailing inspired wall sconces, fireplace, and sauna. Also included is beautiful wood trim and wainscoating created by craftsmen that trimmed ship interiors over a century ago, windows that overlook the beach, walk-in pantry, large open kitchen, dishwasher, microwave oven, and full-size washer/dryer in a large laundry room shared with the Courtyard Rental.
