Sherwood Forest is an unincorporated community in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. It is a beautiful planned, gated, suburban community served by two important entities, Sherwood Forest Club and Sherwood Forest Company. The club oversees community bylaws and activities and the company controls physical parts of the community, such as amenities and roads along with the waterfront and pier. There are reasonable rules in place that help houses, cottages and other structures blend in with the surrounding greenery giving the community a cozy almost rustic atmosphere. It features 2-5 bedroom homes with 2-5 bathrooms and spanning 1-3 stories. It is coastal and features beautiful views and waterfront amenities. It is also historic and somewhat walkable.

William Cochran, who was a rug salesman, joined with a group of investors in the early 1900s, their plan was to open an amusement park. The park was to be located on land, just outside Annapolis, Maryland, that had formerly housed Staltzman Farm. This first plan failed, and a new plan began to take shape in his mind. Around 1915, the area was known as Sherwood Forest and Cochran with his own dreams began clearing trees from the property. Cochran wanted to build a beautiful pastoral resort for middle-class men and their families. Plans for the community began to come together, there would be 341 residences, a golf course, library, marina, pier, tennis courts, softball field, club house and more. Today, the community retains its resort like charms and demand for homes in the community remain high. Leasing or ownership among particular families and family groups through generations, gives the community a unique and on-going stability through the generations.
