Imagine relaxing on a private beach with friends, sipping a glass of wine and toasting marshmallows over a blazing bon;re as you watch the sun sink into the deep blue waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Now imagine that you wake up the next morning, stroll along nature trails shaded by lush greenery, and then
spend the a;ernoon lounging by a 60-foot swimming pool or playing a game of
