Since 1958, CRE has been an eclectic private community situated on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay, just north of the mouth of the Patuxent River, in Calvert County, Maryland. We are just 60 miles off the Capitol Beltway (I-495) around Washington, DC, and 57 miles south of the Maryland state capital, Annapolis, home of the U.S. Naval Academy. The area’s major employment center is the nearby Patuxent River Naval Air Station and Headquarters of the Naval Air Systems Command, plus the literally hundreds of surrounding private companies that support that government facility providing analytical science and engineering consulting in the fields of aircraft development and flight testing.
CRE encompasses over (4000) private homes, no two alike, on lots ranging from a quarter acre to over one acre, (67) miles of privately owned and maintained roads, (2) private sandy beaches on Chesapeake Bay, a large man-made freshwater lake for swimming, fishing and sailing, a private airpark with (28) surrounding homes having adjoining aircraft hangars and a paved and lighted 2550-foot runway , wooded campgrounds, horseshoe pits, and a field of private garden plots next to an adjoining athletic field. We have our own roving Security Force, and our own roads department maintains the 67 miles of roads thoughout the year including snow removal.
Shopping for food and daily needs is just one mile away in the brand new Lusby Town Center which features a wide selection of fine restaurants, banks, the Lusby post office, and many shops for your personal services. Visitors will find world class hotels including a Holiday Inn Select, Hilton Garden Inn, and a Comfort Inn just four miles away near Solomons Island , a major yachting center and tourist haven. The dining cuisine includes not only the local specialty Maryland seafood such as crabcakes and oysters, but all the many varieties of dishes you are accustomed to finding at finer restaurants and gourmet grocery markets worldwide. And excellent schools are plentiful and close by for young families with children. Come see us by land, sea, or air, and experience more about CRE and the southern Maryland lifestyle. It’s a vacation spot close to work in a moderate Mid Atlantic climate.
