Property Description

Holly Knoll is the perfect getaway for families.

This stunningly beautiful, private and secluded waterfront home is yours to enjoy. Swimming pool, dock and kayaks allow you to enjoy this wonderful oasis on your own terms. Large front porch welcomes lazy afternoon naps. The home is an open concept floor plan with the gourmet kitchen, living and dining room surrounded by floor to ceiling windows to allow in the natural beauty.

Situated one mile from Historic St. Mary’s City and St. Mary’s College, Holly Knoll is a world apart from the everyday. Unwind and collect those precious memories with family and friends. Crab from the dock and enjoy Maryland’s finest shellfish. Kayak and explore the surrounding tidal estuary and small ponds. Soak in the sun and quiet beauty and experience old-fashioned tidewater summers.

Let your inner Julia escape the confines of the everyday. The gourmet kitchen has every amenity a budding chef could want. Dual fuel Wolf range with two ovens, Kitchen Aid and Cuisinart as well as top of the line All Clad cookware will assist you as you prepare fresh produce gathered from the local farmers market and Amish farms.

Holly Knoll was built in 1993 and was named from the large grove of American Holly that grows along the river and stream banks. It was situated to be in harmony with the natural environment and to take advantage of the beauty of the St. Mary’s River.

Holly Knolls consists of four nicely appointed bedrooms over two floors, accommodating six guests comfortably. Tucked away on the first floor is the Master Suite complete with steam shower. The remaining three guest rooms occupy the second floor and share a bath. The second floor bedrooms consist of a king, a twin and a full bed.

One mile from historic St. Mary's City, Maryland's original capital, and 15 miles from beautiful Pt. Lookout Park, Holly Knoll is well located for you to enjoy the beauty and bounty of the Chesapeake Bay. Day trips to Solomon's Island, Smith Island, Leonardtown or Loveville will satisfy your inner adventurer. Visit great little cafes, Amish markets and antique shops and experience for yourself how quiet, serene and hospitable life can be just a short 1.5 hour drive south of Washington DC.

Come and relax, unwind and re-boot! Well behaved pets will be considered.

Lovely week at Holly Knoll

Doing nothing other than relaxing by the pool made for a great week at Holly Knoll. The pier was great, kayaks were fun, and the fenced yard was perfect. Lots of towels, comfortable beds, and bedding. Best of all, this was the cleanest vacation home we have ever rented. How refreshing it was to not have to go in and clean before enjoying our week....

Love the natural setting

The house and its surroundings are beautiful. I love nature. Walked my dog every morning on the main road, which had very few cars traveling on it. She was also free to roam in a very large fenced in area in the back. I enjoyed being able to kayak and the river was usually very calm. (My family wished there was more to do nearby. They were not inte... Read More

A Beautiful Respite

Beautiful home and view

The house and property allow for people to spread out. Everything is as it shows in the pictures. No surprises. Only issue was with the area not having much for kids (laser tag, mini golf, arcade, etc).
