Come to visit any time of year and enjoy local e: The summer season has ended, but Kent County comes to life in a new way!

Venturing out of town, you can take a short drive to the bay front town of Rock Hall where you will find marinas and waterman’s workboats. Or Galena, a town known for its antique shops; or perhaps to Chestertown, on the banks of the Chester River where a blend of history, arts, shopping, and/or a Saturday morning trip to the Farmers Market along Fountain Park. The students at Washington College keep Chestertown bustling all year round. Come for a visit – you won’t be disappointed.

The county seat of Kent County, on Maryland’s Upper Eastern Shore, Betterton is surrounded by the rich tapestry of farmland, Sassafrass River and Chesapeake Bay.

Big home, SUPER close to the beach

  • 5 of 5
The homeowner was very responsive to my many questions. She was very nice and we paid via PayPal, booking the home was easy.
There aren't many places that allows pets, so the fact that we could bring our family dog was great. The home is RIGHT next to the beach, my family and I walked to the beach. The beach is pretty small, but it felt like a private beach to us, there wasn't anyone there the weekend we stayed.
The home is BIG.
No central air, but they have a bunch on window air units in the home, that makes staying during the humid summer totally comfortable.

This house was perfect with everything you need to have a very relaxing stay. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The beach was clean and not crowded.
My kids enjoyed searching for sea glass and rocks. We enjoyed the quiet nights watching the boats and walking the beach. Thanks again for letting us enjoy your home.....

Wedding week

  • 5 of 5
We had relatives coming in for a wedding in Betterton, and secured this house so we could be together. It was lovely, clean, and well equipped with a big kitchen and good sized dining room. It is much more spacious than the pictures indicated, and there was plenty of room to spread out in. We rented a couple of cottages nearby as well, but this house served as our center of operation for cooking, and was a good redezvous point for trips to the beach, being within quick walking distance. The washer and dryer were very useful as well. We hope to come back again!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for a week in July 2011. Coming from a big city, it was amazing how that as soon I got out of my truck all of the stresses just seemed to melt away. We went fishing on a charter out of Rock Hall the following morning and enjoyed our catch on the grill that night. There was plenty of kitchenware for us to cook our meals. Great place to ride bikes, run, and walk, especially with the a 15mos old daughter. House has some great amenities. Love the deck. Great neighbors. A very nice stay all around!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I recently stayed at this beautiful home. The house had everything we needed to fix a home cooked meal and sitting on the deck we had a perfect view of water as the boats went by. Fifteen minutes after arriving we were greated by a wonderful neighbor by the name of Tom and his two dogs. The dogs were very nice and Tom was very helpful. We were also greated by six of the neighborhood cats. The beach is private, so we didn't have to deal with a crowd. We were also able to fish from the nearby piere. Every times some one drove by the house they would greet us by waiving and saying hello!
Betterton is a perfect vacation spot and I would even love to live there. Thank you for making our first vacation special!
We will meet again!
