Great space near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house and one down the street for a long weekend in conjunction with a triathlon in Rock Hall. The house was perfect for a group of friends or a family looking for a nice space near a really pretty beach on the bay as well as other towns on the eastern shore. The owners and the neighbors are super friendly and helpful. Definitely a great space for us!

Owner's Response: We're pleased it worked out well to have our house to spread out into for the weekend of the triathlon. There are so many runs and other events in the area, and Betterton is a very convenient place to stay!

We were satisfied

  • 4 of 5

We liked our stay at this house the only reason we gave it 4 stars was that the WiFi didn't work, a lot of stuff was outdated, one of the twin beds upstairs i was told squeaks everytime you move so it was hard to sleep and the house just overall was more run down then it looked in the pictures.

It was in a great location, the owners are very helpful and answer questions pretty quickly and it's within a 5 min walk to Barbaras on the bay which is an awesome restaurant. They also supplied almost everything you could need such as a fully stocked kitchen and extras like hair dryer, laundry soap and paper towels etc.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry the internet didn't work for you. It hasn't been a problem before, that we have heard about. We suggested unplugging the modem then restarting, but didn't hear back from you whether or not that worked. We'll check it out for sure!

A fun, clean place for a weekend or a week away.

  • 4 of 5

Great attention to detail: night lights, good lighting, clean, comfortable dining room chairs, well stocked pantry all described beforehand. Betterton is a fun place, great for walks. We ate at Barbara's, which was a fun, tasty, walkable place. Spent Saturday in Chestertown--loved the farmer's market and the shops.

Owner's Response: Isn't Chestertown a fun town? We always enjoy browsing the used book store and getting a good cup of coffee at Play It Again Sam's. And of course the restaurants - lots of great choices! Glad you got to be there for the Saturday farmer's market!

Betterton... Never heard of it?

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to let anyone else know about this gem of a home in a town where time has stood still and by a beach no less! The owners could not have been more responsive and the home is very clean, quaint and comfortable. The beds are very comfortable and there are plenty of blankets, something that is not always present in rentals. The deck is perfect for reading or morning coffee and with a partial view of the bay. And the beach is a 2 minute walk with benches if you don't like sand on your toes. Barbara's the only walkable restaurant was very good and the service and owner make you feel like family as do all the residents of the area. Thank you to the Walkups for sharing their home with us!

Qauint, charming and comfortable home in a bayside town off the beaten path.

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for a reunion weekend for 9 friends, myself included. The house more than accommodated all of us and we had a wonderful weekend, despite the bad weather on Friday. Saturday was fantastic and we all took a walk down to the beach (twice) to enjoy the sun and the breeze. Sunday's weather, by far, was the best day of the weekend. I wish we could have stayed another night just to enjoy and explore the area. Betterton was historic, quiet, charming and friendly. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone seeking a vacation spot that is just far enough from the hustle and bustle.

Perfect Spot for Girls Weekend & Sea Glass Hunting!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for renting us your perfect home at the beach! We arrived on Friday around 7pm in January - in the dark...the sky was lit up with stars. I have never seen anything quite like it. We found a welcome note from Maura, the neighbor, who knew we were in town hoping to find some sea glass! I called her and she gave us some great tips on where to look and then we headed to Barbara's On The Bay for dinner. We had a great dinner and Barbara was so sweet and lent us her flashlight so we could go look on the beach after dinner. We had a great night of sleep after our late night hunt on the beach - I slept in the double bed and it was so comfortable! The next morning we hit the road at 5:30am to go beach combing. We went to Betterton beach down the street first - and stayed for probably 1.5 hours and we each found a nice handful of glass. Then we headed to Tolchester Beach - which at high tide was not worth it! Maybe it would be good at low tide - but we didn't go back. Then we went down to Rock Hall - and we had fun hunting for seaglass and other treasures there. We had success in finding bottles still in tact - down at Eastern Neck park...I found a bottle dated from the 1930's and one of my friends found one - perfect condition - from the 1800's!! (there is a site that can date these bottles) After that we came back to the house - refreshed and sat around the living room laughing and checking out the Roku (I haven't used one before - super cool!) After relaxing for a bit - we went back to Betterton Beach at low tide. We walked forever and got so many pieces of seaglass and other treasures. We had a quick bite at Marzellas pizza and then came home to have cocktails and early bed - for more hunting the next morning. We crossed the bridge on the way home and went to Sandy Point - another great spot for hunting and then a breakfast at Miss Shirley's in Annapolis. So while we didn't stay much in the house - when we did - we felt welcomed and comfortable. The house was clean and had basic supplies you would need - and the double bed was soooo comfortable. Thank you for everything! We hope to come back soon for another weekend of seaglass hunting!

Owner's Response: Wow, Bretany! Sounds like you made the most of your sea glass hunting get-away. You and your friends sound like an adventurous bunch, and we're so happy our house accommodated all of you so well. We look forward to following up on some of your hot tips on places to search! We hope you'll come back to enjoy the house another time - summer and fall are lots of fun as well!
