About Rich MacDowell

Hi, my name is Rich MacDowell. My Wife Julie and I have enjoyed decorating this very relaxing beach house. We want our guests to enjoy all the boating and beach pleasures available, so we keep beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, and kid's fishing equipment at our beach home.

Why Rich MacDowell chose Maryland

If you are looking for a great summer adventure, that goes beyond just the beach, but includes fishing and crabbing for the kids; and also delivers relaxation in a quiet secluded bucolic setting...then our house is for you. Ocean Pines is a great community which offers anyone there many and varied activities, beyond just the beach.

Please try us out. I'm sure you'll love it!

What makes this house unique

Golfing at 6 nearby renowned courses, nature walks, heron sightings, fishing and crabbing for the kids, beautiful sunsets, tennis, kayaking, boating, surfing, the best beach in the Mid-Atlantic, and so much more comes with a vacation at Ocean Pines!

Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation in OC Pines. My family rented two other houses and ours was the best. The lay out was perfect for our little grandkids to sleep while we visited in the upper part of the house. The dock was perfect and we were able to use the crab pot, boogie boards, and beach stuff.

I would definitely rent the house again.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Just spent one of the best weeks at the Eastern Shore. You have an awesome home. My kids had there own bedroom and we had our own separate bedroom, bath and living area. Came in handy along with the game room with the day of rain we had. Kids loved crabbing and fishing off the dock with the provided rods and traps. Just wish I had a boat or jet ski. The home is better then described. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Tom, thank you for your kind words we really have tried to offer a vacation experience for the entire family to enjoy. We have the fishing and crabbing equipment for our guests to maximize the benefit of being right on the water, which is a very beautiful bucolic spot. We also have 2 bicycles, the Xbox and the foosball game for the kids and teenagers to enjoy. Please stay with us again next year. Rich MacDowell

Awesome beach week!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome beach week in a lovely home. Three bathrooms and a comfortable room for every family member. It was great to have the ability to park in the Ocean Pines parking lot and have the use of the bath house at the beach! The boat launch was close and we were able to keep our boat at the dock behind the house. Crabbing was also fun. Our family had a great time.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Charming home on the canal in Ocean Pines with lots of amenities. Master bedroom was like an oasis, so spacious and private. Could use a new mattress though. Loved sitting on the deck outside the master living room! We really enjoyed staying at your home, but wished you had a couple of flat screen tvs and wifi. Thanks for sharing your slice of heaven.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great week at the house! Loved the house and Ocean Pines! The location was easy access for us as we brought a boat down and did not use our cars during the stay except to run to the grocery store which was also very conveniently located!

Definitely would recommend this house to others!

p.s. Thanks for being so kind as to let us check in early since the house was ready!

We had a wonderful long weekend visit to this great house. Everything we needed was provided and the location was perfect. As a transplanted ocean city local, it was so nice to go back and visit home and feel like we were really at home. The weather was perfect, too. We definitely plan to return next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind remarks. So many folks miss out on the Fall Season at Ocean Pines/Ocean City. It is really one of the best times of year to visit. We think our home, situated on a quiet and picturesque canal while offering a beautiful wildlife reserve of birds and fauna is the perfect place to enjoy a peaceful getaway.
