Very affordable vacation house

  • 4 of 5

The information about the house was very accurate. It is just a short walk from the beach and our grandkids really enjoyed playing in the sand. The house was very clean and the kitchen was adequately supplied with the necessities for cooking. We enjoyed our stay.

Lovely Cottage close to beautiful Betterton Beach

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Betterton Beach House for Labor Day weekend. Remarkably, the beach is not very busy - perfect for us to enjoy a weekend getaway from work with our three small children. The house was the perfect size for our 5-person family - we used all but one of the bedrooms. Another family could have joined us but we would have had to use the pullout couch downstairs to accommodate everyone.

The house's location is perfect and a short walk to the beach. The owners provided almost everything that we needed other than food - a very welcome aspect for busy parents! The owners also kindly allowed us to check in early on very short notice - very much appreciated. The beauty of the house is in the imagination of its history - hardwood floors, plaster walls, etc and it is clear that the owners are working to update and care for some aging areas of the home. Overall we had a lovely stay and are already talking about coming back next year. Thank you for facilitating our wonderful family memories!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you and your family were able to enjoy the house and beach! Our family memories of Betterton go back to when our children were building sand castles and splashing in the bay. Now we have a grandson who visits - new memories! Betterton is a great place for families!

Charming beach home close to all the attractions of the "Eastern" shore.

  • 4 of 5

This home is located in the small town of Betterton, Maryland. The beach is almost within eye sight and only two short blocks away. While there is only one restaurant or two in the town, the house is close to Chestertown, Maryland which has an abundance of everything including grocery stores, movie theater, restaurants, antique shops, and other historical attractions. The house is also near enough to the beaches of Delaware and Maryland for a day spent enjoying all the activities to be found along the coast.

The house itself has a real beach house feel. Very clean and stocked with more supplies such as towels, sheets, and extra blankets than I have found in other homes I have rented in the past. There is plenty of room for a large group and we never ran out of hot water. The laundry area is clean and has new front loading washer/dryer which makes doing laundry a breeze.

The house is very close to the beach and the beach has a nice sandy area to enjoy the bay with life guards and a pier to use for fishing. There are benches for sitting and watching the sun set in the evening. As a parent of three teenagers, it was nice to feel safe enough to let the kids roam around and enjoy the beach alone because of the life guards and the very safe feeling of the area,.

I very much enjoyed my stay in the Betterton house. The town is quiet and safe and the owner has thought of all the little things that make a visit special. The town itself is very small; however, we used it as our home base while we explored Rehoboth beach, Delaware, Ocean City, Maryland, St. Michaels, Chestertown, and Rock Hall. Most all, we very much enjoyed the relaxed feel of the house. It is an older home and I very much appreciate the charm and character found in older homes. The kitchen was well stocked, the towels and sheets clean and found in abundance, and the town small and safe enough to let the kids roam around and not worry. The house also had a Roku device which allowed us to log into our accounts and watch favorite TV shows or Movies during the evenings as we relaxed after day trips to other towns on the "Eastern" shore.

We stayed during one of the hottest weeks of the summer and the house stayed nice and cool. I will stay here again because the house is an excellent value, located in a nice and quiet area, and safe enough to let my teenagers roam around and enjoy the beach without worrying about their safety.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Mitchell! We love the fact that we can get "anywhere" from Betterton for some really great day trips. But if we just want to hang out, the town is small enough and the house close enough to the beach that everyone can come and go as they please. Glad you had a good time! And hooray for a great AC!

We were very happy with our stay and the property in Betterton! We loved that it is a quiet town!

  • 4 of 5

The property was older than we anticipated. However we appreciate older homes and enjoyed it. Everything worked well, especially the awesome air conditioning (which helped us during a hot July 4th week). It was close to walk to the beach and restaurant which we liked. The neighborhood was so quiet and welcoming. One neighbor even gave us a tour of his home while we were taking a walk! The views and sunsets during our walks added to our relaxation. Fireworks across the bay could been seen from our upstairs windows (which were close enough for our little kids ;). The kayak was in great shape and we were sorry we didn't find time to use it. This was our first vacation as a family with our dog and two kids under 3. We highly recommend this home for a quiet and easy getaway including easy access to the bay/beach. Thanks!
