The Cottage is a 19th-century plantation complex located near Upper Marlboro in Prince George's County, Maryland. The complex consists of the principal three-part plantation house with its grouping of domestic outbuildings and four tenant farms, scattered over 282 acres (114 ha). The plantation house has a 2 1⁄2-story main block constructed in the 1840s with a typical Greek Revival style interior trim and distinctive Italianate cornice brackets. Within 150 feet (46 m) to the northwest of the house is a complex of domestic outbuildings, including a well house, ice house, and meat house. It was the home of Charles Clagett (1819–1894), a prominent member of Upper Marlboro social and political society during the second half of the 19th century.
