We had a wonderful vacation this year, primarily because we stayed in Ocean Pines at this charming house. We did not want to be in the constant buzz of Ocean City. We took full advantage of using the Ocean Pines Beach Club passes to go to the beach. This was great because we had a place to park, restroom facilities and a place to purchase food and beverage. When the day was over we drove the short trip across the Rt. 90 bridge where we relaxed in quiet peace. Although the house is on a canal, we chose to sit on the front deck and peak at the view of St. Martin River between the houses across the street. We were also very excited to be able to take our dog who is a very important part of our life. The bathrooms and kitchen could use some updates, but the house was very clean, with fabulous beach decor throughout which made up for any little disappointments. We had family visit throughout the week and they enjoyed their stay as well. On our last night we went to the Lighthouse Sound restaurant and had a great dining experience topping off the vacation. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for peace and quiet, but able to join the hustle and bustle right around the corner if desired. We especially enjoyed the double ceiling fan with the monkey and parrot perched in between always looking over us !
