Welcome to The Cottages of Governors Run - host of privately owned waterfront Chesapeake Bay whole-house vacation rentals. We hope that you are visiting this site seeking a quiet and relaxing get away to a nice bay cottage. Located just 14 miles north of the historic seaport of Solomons Island and 45 minutes south of Annapolis, Marylandís capital, The Cottages of Governors Run take you back to quiet and pleasant times of days gone by.

If you enjoy swimming in calm bay waters, listening to the waves of the beach, relaxing in the sun, fishing from the 400 foot private community pier, grilling on the beach, walking miles and miles on the beach while searching for fossil sharks teeth, or wandering through our peaceful southern Maryland communities, youíve found your next vacation cottage.

Build a sand castle, float on an inner tube or watch the shoreline change with the tides. Pack a picnic and take a walk on our miles of natural beach. Explore the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay while soaking in the sun and salt air. Privacy, simplicity, and relaxation await you and your family.

While the cottages are unique; in size, design and appointments, each bay front cottage reflects the individualism of its' owner. We take great pride in matching your needs with our accommodations. We want you to enjoy your visit and return year after year.
