Thank you for your interest in renting the Public Landing Cottage. You've just taken the first step towards finding your perfect hideaway!

This could be your home away from home in historic Public Landing Snow Hill, Maryland. Steps away from the picturesque Chincoteague Bay, with a private dock in your own backyard, the Public Landing Cottage feels like another world.

Whether your're looking to get away with the family without the chaos of the nearby resort towns, or looking for a convenient place to stay while hunting or fishing, the fully renovated bathroom and kitchen make this cottage the perfect place for you.

The cottage boasts a 270 degree waterfront view, private dock out back that's fully protected from tides and wind, and plenty of parking right outside the house.

About Mark

I enjoy a great getaway from the city. This property has it all. Unfortunately, I can't escape every week so I decided to share the unique experience of the public landing cottage to the masses.

Mark purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Mark chose Maryland

If you have 3k-5k to spend on a summer vacation, this place is not for you. If you need the bars and nightlife, this place is not for you.

If you are looking for a peaceful retreat, like boating, hunting, fishing, and a place you don't have to worry about the hustle and bustle... This place is for you.

Bring either your- boat, pet, fishing stuff, hunting stuff, kids, grandkids. It is an escape from over crowded vacations.

End of the Road Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The last leg of the trip to this wonderful and quaint cottage brings you to a gorgeous panoramic view of the Chincoteague Bay. As you drive to the last house on the left, it is easy to see the cozy strip of beach at the end of the road that is available for public use.

The Saturday we arrived was extremely humid, but the newly installed wall mounted split unit had no problem keeping the entire cottage comfortable. When the humidity finally dropped, it is easy to adjust the unit using the provided remote (or just turn off completely to let the fresh coastal breezes blow through the house).

The cottage is furnished with everything you would need to settle in on day one. Everything was freshly cleaned and the layout gives the two main rooms a very spacious and open feeling. The front porch/sun room is perfect for watching the sunrise over the bay and enjoy a morning coffee. The size was just right for us (myself and my wife) and our two dogs.

Throughout the week there is plenty to keep you occupied. There are numerous nearby sites and attractions--including Assateauge State Park--providing campgrounds, beach access, river tours, hiking, and more. Ocean City is a short drive away, perfect for a day trip to the seaside shops and restaurants.

Any questions we had were promptly answered by Mark through the HomeAway app.

We highly recommend this rental for other couples or small families, with or without pets. Our entire trip was incredibly relaxing and we hope to visit again soon.

The Perfect Place for Us

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband and I and two adult children) had a wonderful week at Public Landing. If you are looking for a peaceful place off the beaten path then this is the place for you. The house itself feels like a home, and I compliment the owners for their approach. It was wonderful to be able to bring our dog! We began and ended the week with some pretty intense heat and appreciated the air-conditioning, but tried to spend as much time outdoors as possible. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular, and watching shooting stars against the backdrop of the Milky Way was really special. The private boat dock behind the house, small beach a few hundred yards away, and public fishing pier down the road allowed us to kayak, swim, crab and fish with ease. We also rented kayaks and two bikes, to supplement our own, from Pocomoke River Kayak in Snow Hill. I can't recommend them enough. We had a few choppy afternoons on the bay, but there are a lot of interesting creeks and channels to explore by kayak. The roads are also ideal for biking. Thank you, Mark! We hope to come back next year.

Another great week away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Public Landing cottage and it did not disappoint! Due to the excessive summer heat, we were a bit disappointed that we were unable to enjoy the morning views from the enclosed front porch but it would not deter us from coming back again.

Charming waterman’s cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The Public Landing Cottage is truly a hidden gem! My family of 4 and 2 dogs arrived for our week long vacation and immediately fell in love with the charm of the cottage and the amazing water views from almost everywhere in the house. To quote our 5-year-old daughter “now this is a place that I can vacation”. Morning coffee on the front porch watching the sun gleam off the bay, fishing off the back dock, roasted hotdogs and s’mores around the fire pit, a short walk to the beach, fresh caught crabs purchased right out your backdoor……all enjoyed with the company of our dogs. What more do you need?

The listing is exactly as advertised and the property clean and well maintained. We had just one request of the owner and his very lovely mother, Barbara, came by the very next morning and shared some great history about the property. We did make it into the town of Snow Hill and enjoyed a great dinner at the Harvest Moon Tavern where the staff was very friendly and knew everyone by name by the time we finished dinner. We also did take-out from China Moon and the food was as good as any Chinese take-out in our own neck of the woods.

Without hesitation, we will recommend this property to friends and family. So glad we have a second week to look forward to in August! Counting down the days!
