Sherwood Forest Annapolis

Welcome to the Forest!
“‘Cottage’ is an Old English word meaning small dwelling built for cover or protection. If you had lived in Sherwood Forest seventy or eighty years ago, you would have lived in a cottage… You were here because you loved the woods, the water and the Sherwood way of life.” 

The community, which is gated, is split in terms of control between the Sherwood Forest Club, and the Sherwood Forest Company. The Club controls the community activities and bylaws of the community, while the Sherwood Forest Company has control of maintenance of the roads, piers, amenities, waterfront and other physical aspects of the community. The community has restrictive bylaws intended to ensure the cottages and homes within the community blend into the surrounding woods. Houses can be painted brown, green and some limited homes painted white, with green being a shade known as "Sherwood Green" developed by Bruning Paint Co.

The 9-hole Sherwood Forest Golf Course was designed by Herbert Strong and opened in 1919. The community had an additional 18-hole golf course, which was sold, and later added to the neighboring community, The Downs on the Severn.

The Sherwood Forest Club runs a summer camp for the children of its residents. The camp began in the 1920s, and has changed little since that time.
