Nestled between the Chesapeake Bay and the beautiful Patuxent River, Asbury Solomons offers relaxing waterfront living with close access to Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Annapolis, Maryland.
There’s a lot to explore here. In addition to its rich history, Southern Maryland is renowned for its fresh and delicious seafood, especially blue crab, oysters and rockfish. Even better, you can catch your own dinner—either from our pier or while on a chartered fishing expedition
The three counties that comprise Southern Maryland—Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s—provide plenty of ways to fill your calendar. Events like the Artsfest, St. Mary’s River Concerts and the Sotterly Arts and Wine Festival provide fun for family and guests. Tour Annmarie Sculpture Garden or the Calvert Marine Museum. Take a hike and search for fossils at Calvert Cliffs State Park. Visit St. Clement’s Island, an historic 40-acre state park accessible only by boat. Browse the shops on Solomons Island. Or kayak around local creeks.

With its unique waterfront location, it’s no surprise that Asbury Solomons has a strong commitment to stewardship of the environment. The Go Green Committee, comprised of residents, promotes this stewardship through awareness and action.
One example is the Oyster Initiative, which strives to improve water quality in the Patuxent River and, ultimately, the Chesapeake Bay. In the past five years, residents have added more than 1 million oysters to the breakwaters off Asbury Solomons’ dock.
At Asbury Solomons, Earth Day isn’t just a day; it’s a monthly series of events and lectures. Our annual celebration is open to the community, including students and other groups interested in learning more about the importance of environmental stewardship.
