Welcome to the Riva Cottage

Enjoy fantastic views of the South River from our fully furnished 2 bedroom waterfront cottage. Our cottage is located in the private community of Sylvan Shores in Riva, Maryland. The cottage overlooks the South River and is 6 miles from Annapolis. Our cottage is a pet friendly vacation home. We provide great accommodations, water access and an awesome water view! Enjoy vacationing in one of the few remaining waterfront 1920's style vacation cottages in the Annapolis area.
