Lower Marlboro is a village with about twenty historic homes, built from the seventeenth to twentieth centuries, and a few of more recent construction. Many houses are Calvert County Historic properties. A small Methodist church (Mt. Harmony/ Lower Marlboro) holds services each Sunday, as well as maintaining a church hall used for community events. There is a strong community spirit with an opportunity to get to know your neighbors. Dunkirk, about 10 minutes away, has groceries, restaurants, service stations, office buildings, and a medical center.
More than anything else, Lower Marlboro elicits comments about the beauty of its natural setting. The Patuxent River dominates the view, about 500 feet wide plus another quarter-mile of wetlands between the river and the opposite shoreline, which is park land (Patuxent River Park, Prince George's County).

You can join your neighbors around Lower Marlboro doing things like playing a round of golf at Mellomar's two 9-hole courses, enjoying wine tastings at Friday's Creek Winery just up Chaneyville Road, canoing, fishing, or bird watching over the Patuxent. The Sunday before Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the winter holiday season in Lower Marlboro, with a pot-luck Community Thanksgiving at the Lower Marlboro Church Hall. The entire hall is decorated with harvest bounty, and a food drive benefits the local food bank.
Whether you are looking for a serene weekend getaway, or a lifetime community, living at the Harbor Master's House can make those dreams come true.
