Sunset Serenity

5 BR
2 Baths
Sleeps 10


Enjoy stunning western-facing views across the river and a natural tidal pond from this sprawling historic home that sits on 1.5+ acres. The light-filled farmhouse is located on Persimmon Point, which is positioned between Harness Creek and the South River. It is a peninsula rich in local lore that includes Native American oysters mounds, pirate hideouts, tobacco farming and world champion cows.

Some history: Once the home was part of the original Wimbledon Farm. From the 1930’s, Wimbledon Farm grew abundant produce and tobacco. The last magnificent tobacco barn in Annapolis is on the property next to the house. Wimbledon was also famous for their dairy. Their dairy cows and bulls attracted breeders from around the world and famously started the “Carnation” milk herd. The dairy barn was immense and the milk came into the small milk house, which is now the charming "Milkhouse Suite". Here the milk was chilled and sent out to be bottled and delivered.

Today: The house offers a special, very private family retreat just minutes to downtown Annapolis. The home was renovated to its current beauty by opening the entire back of the house to the water with windows and connecting the main house to the "milk house". All of the living space, and 4 of the 5 bedrooms, are on the main floor. The lofted upstairs bedroom is perfect for the younger crowd with 3 twin beds and room to enjoy each other's company. The open floor plan, deck and terrace provide multiple living spaces inside and out. There are 2 full baths and room for 10 guests to sleep comfortably.

Enjoy the outdoors on stone patio with fountain and dining tables, a pair of Adirondack chairs on the back deck under the shady wisteria pergola, and a BBQ grill. Inside, the dining table seats 8 with room for 3 more at the breakfast bar. Across the lush lawn, there is also a small pier on the pond for kayak launching or fishing fun for small anglers. Guests can also get away from the day by lounging on the creek side on the front porch swing.

Local activities: Great Frogs Winery (less than ½ mile away down the street), Quiet Waters Park (hiking trails, ice skating, SUP rentals) and kayaking or biking.

Good Morning, We are enjoying our stay at Sunset Serenity and will definitely return again. All of the accommodations are nice and the house is very nice.

Two weeks on the South River!
4/5 stars
The sunset views were breathing; we made sure to sit outside every night. Spacious home with the history buffs will appreciate. Decorated lovely. I would have rated it five stars except for the fact that the mattresses were marshmallow soft. Unfortunately, both of our backs were affected by this according to two doctors. The location is very good in terms of traveling to Historic Annapolis, the State Capital and restaurants. Loved the neighbood.

Sunset Serenity - Superb!
5/5 stars
Our stay at Sunset Serenity was magical. Our two families, young and old alike, loved the property. While the parents enjoyed the sunset, the kids were able to master kayaking in a safe and fun environment. The proximity to the city made it a perfect location for a getaway. As frequent VRBO families, this is by far our favorite spot. We look forward to returning again.

Breathtaking views and gorgeous home!
5/5 stars
The sunset views from this gorgeous house are stunning! The setting is like a fairytale, with amazing water views and magical gardens. And the layout of the house is so inviting. And it’s all so close to downtown Annapolis! I would rent this place again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful Sunsets, Cozy Stay
5/5 stars
I don't have a single complaint. This was the perfect home for my family. We had 3 generations stay (all adults) and found the home had everything we needed. We are the type of family that makes our morning coffee time a ritual. The open kitchen/dining/living room had more than enough space for us to have coffee, talk, laugh, and look over the water. Everyone got a ton of pictures in the evening watching the sunset. We would love to come back when the weather gets a bit warmer. Highly recommend this property to anyone looking.
