John and Leila Juracek's British friends tell them their 1929 Tudor Revival house in Baltimore's Homeland neighborhood is more like an English cottage than the country cottages in England. The L-shaped exterior is of 18-inch-thick stone dressed in ivy and topped with a second-story, timber and stucco construction. Formal gardens grace the back of the home, while inside, leaded-glass mullioned windows with chintz and toile draperies, solid traditional furniture and needlepoint rugs impart a heady sense of living on the pages of an Agatha Christie novel.

The story is a familiar one for many Maryland homeowners living along eastern Baltimore County's shoreline: The appeal, initially, is in having a summer vacation cottage. That is, until the inhabitants realize that with a bit of remodeling and updating, they can live in their dream home on the water all year long. This was the case for Bill and Jo Ann Loeliger and their three children, Erin, Kelsey and Burk. Their contemporary three-story home sits high on a bank off the south shore of the Middle River near Turkey Point - a setting quite different from that of their previous home in northern Baltimore County.

Low gray clouds of a late autumn day appear to envelop a two-story cedar cottage and its attached one-story log cabin. Sitting on three acres in Howard County and accessed through a wrought-iron arch down a narrow lane, the property has been the home of 63-year-old Priscilla Griffith for most of her adult life. A roughly landscaped front garden contains the print of a fenced-in vegetable patch, harvested months ago. The path to the cottage is a dirt one; a brick walkway from its side entrance leads to the main house.

On Maryland's Eastern Shore, 6201 Swan Creek Road in Rock Hall reaches new heights in property ownership. A classic 19th-century farmhouse and a charming waterfront cottage sit on a private peninsula consisting of 177-plus acres of farmland. With gorgeous views of the Chesapeake Bay, the main farmhouse has been meticulously restored by the owner from the foundation up - including a major addition completed in 1998 that nearly doubles the living space. This has allowed for a modern kitchen, family room, guest room and an office.

On the 94-acre campus of Broadmead, a retirement community, there is an immediate sense that this isomething very different from preconceived notions about senior life residences. Instead of multistory buildings tucked into the hills of Hunt Valley, little clusters of cottages have been designed and built on the property. Each cluster of one-story bungalows is like a small court of homes in a quaint village, albeit one that is rich in wildlife, nature trails and the protected wetlands of Western Run. Rhoda Dorsey's cottage is located in the newest group of homes.

For visitors it's like entering a fairy-tale world, a marzipan island of pastel houses, powder-pink beaches, golf courses as green as shamrocks, and flowers and shrubs in exuberant profusion.The pace is unhurried, the air fragrant, the sun generous. True, the weather can be spotty and the coral reefs treacherous but, on the whole, Bermuda is a pleasing respite from the real world.I spent five days in Bermuda, staying in cottage colonies in Paget, a popular tourist area, as well as a small hotel in the capital city of Hamilton.

The existence of eastern Baltimore County's waterfront neighborhoods, dotted with an ever-growing number of summer cottages and year-round homes, came as a surprise to Frank and Nancy Lanzi. Neither of them even knew about the narrow Wilson Point peninsula jutting out into the Middle River. Now, almost 10 years after that introduction, the couple enjoys life on the river in their new custom-built bungalow, unable to imagine life anywhere else. "We call our house an unexpected blessing because we actually were not looking for a dream house," said Nancy Lanzi, a 56-year-old mother of three grown children and a middle school math teacher.

The woman who nearly brought down a president - and brought round-the-clock media stakeouts to her suburban cul-de-sac - can no longer be counted as Columbia's most talked-about resident. Linda R. Tripp has moved out of the Cricket Pass home where she recorded Monica Lewinsky discussing her sexual relationship with President Clinton. Tripp has not sold the house but is living in a small cottage on a 100-acre horse farm in Marshall, Va., and has registered to vote there. Tripp's recordings exposed the White House sex scandal that culminated in President Clinton's impeachment in December 1998.

Sam McCready sits in a blue leather wing chair that dominates the cozy northeastern corner of his cottage. He is framed in a halo of baskets in assorted sizes and colors hanging overhead. To his left is a large fireplace, encased in stone and fitted with a wood-burning stove that softly hisses. Behind him, paneled wall shelves display assorted pieces of Spode china that glisten in the pale light of a winter morning outside his windowed door. McCready's mood is both reflective and appreciative as he raises his eyes to the exposed, oak ceiling beams.

The best thing about O'Leary's Seafood Restaurant is how tricky it is to describe. Not so many years back, I'd have called O'Leary's eclectic, which became a byword for both a type of menu and the kind of place that served it. Offering a relaxed version of fine dining, the eclectic restaurant flourished in the 1990s, when serving staffs started wearing black T-shirts and sheets of paper were placed over the tablecloth. Eclectic lives on at O'Leary's, which is housed in a bright blue cottage-like building, a stone's throw from Spa Creek in Annapolis.

Driving the back roads that hug the periphery of Maryland's shoreline, there is no singular characteristic that defines the homes. The ones that date back to summer-only retreats are usually one-story clapboard structures with the give-away air conditioning unit in a window or two. Some are two-story, farmhouse styles. Many are built with their backs to the Chesapeake Bay or its tributaries. While many of this style remain, there is a new kind of construction on the block: multistory, year-round homes, with the back of the home boasting sheets of glass in a variety of casements that frame the major attraction: the water.
