Feels Like a World Away But Still Just Six Minutes From Town
Minutes From the County Seat
Convenient to banks, shops, dining, community centers, the hospital, doctors' offices, and generally anything you need to run a business.
If you are into water sports, the farm is close to both the Chesapeake Bay and the Patuxent River. Ride horses on the beach. Sailing, swimming, crabbing, and Sea Doo-ing types of water crafts are very popular. Spend the day at the beach, looking for shark's teeth and fossils (huge thing here).
