Quirky little cottage in small beach town

  • 5 of 5

Seahorse cottage is a unique little cottage in the small beach town of North Beach, MD. The location is excellent. We parked our car and did not have to move it for the rest of the weekend. Restaurants, shops and boardwalk are all within short walking distance. We have two dogs so this was an excellent rental for us as there is a completely fenced front and back yard. I was worried as in the pictures, the fence did not look that high, so I was delighted to discover that the back yard has a 6 foot perimeter fence (one of my dogs is tall and a great jumper!). The cottage is clean and bright and has everything you need for your stay, plates, cups, glasses, cookware etc. Towels and linens were clean and fresh and all appliances were clean and in good repair. The walls have lovely art work by local artists. This is a great place to have a weekend retreat. Enjoy some walks along the boardwalk, buy some wine in the little wine shop in town, have a good meal at the restaurants (we found 3 good ones within walking distance) and have a look around the art gallery or antique shops. Overall a nice relaxing restful weekend in a cute little beach cottage.

Went shark tooth hunting, ate at some good restaurants. Explored the area. I would recommend Flag Ponds Nature park for a unique beach experience

Great place to stay, wonderful property owners

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just the right size for our family and was nice & clean. Everything was stocked in case you forgot something in your travel and the owners were welcoming & helpful. The cottage was a short two block walk to the boardwalk and the town itself was a great slower pace. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our beach trip and cannot wait to return next year.

Very disappointed

  • 1 of 5

air conditioner broke when we arrived, floors r uneven, mattresses on beds like lying on wire not comfortable at all, we actually arrived at 4:30 on Friday and left Saturday morning due to it being so uncomfortable, we were supposed to stay until Sunday, grass not kept up, very disappointing

Owner's Response: We regret the Seahorse Guest Cottage did not meet expectations, however the cottage is not a perfect match for everyone. The broken AC was replaced during your stay immediately after being notified. Yes, the floors are uneven - it is an almost 100 year old cottage and uneven floors are part of its character. We will check the comfort of the mattress. Due to rain, the grass in the back yard did need cutting. In the front yard we are encouraging moss to replace the grass. We maintain the yard without any chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides to ensure a safe environment not only for guests and their pets, but also for beneficial insects such as butterflies, bees, and praying mantis.

The Seahorse is the sweetest, most peaceful place in all of Maryland. Thank you for such a wonderful place to call home for the week

Cozy quiet get-away

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a quiet, private get-away you have found it. Great outside eating area with grill, backyard and privacy from the world. Well appointed kitchen - local grocery/liquor store and CVS within a mile. Two short blocks from beach. Owners allowed us early check-in even though we ended up not using it as cottage was available. They were also very helpful and prompt in answering any and all questions including where the best restaurant in town was for breakfast. Will be going back next year.
