Ocean Pines vacation rentals

Ocean Pines: a peaceful community with first-class amenities

Situated on Maryland’s picturesque Eastern Shore, Ocean Pines is a peaceful gated community nestled on nearly 3500 shaded acres. With all the amenities of a modern town, this self-contained enclave offers visitors the opportunity to play a round of golf, hit the hiking trails, or kick back at the yacht club. You’ll find a range of dining options, and at only 10 miles from bustling Ocean City, an Ocean Pines vacation rental will put you within reach of one of America’s classic beach destinations.

Ocean Pines offers action-packed days and tranquil nights

An Ocean Pines vacation rental offers the perfect combination of long, relaxing days and peaceful nights. Kick-start your morning with a swim in one of 5 pools, including a heated indoor pool, and while away an afternoon with a game of basketball, or kayak out to Isle of Wight Bay. The yacht club not only offers mooring, but a restaurant with seasonal live music. There’s even a year-round farmers market if you want to prepare an Eastern Shore-inspired feast—think fresh crab cakes, huckleberry pudding, and avocado salad.

Trails and trattorias: attractions in Ocean Pines

With towering pines, sparkling waters, and verdant hills, Ocean Pines is a pleasure to explore, and an amble around the walking trails is a great way to spend a summer morning.

An Ocean Pines vacation rental is also only a 20-minute drive from Ocean City, where you can stroll the iconic 3-mile boardwalk, catch a concert, and charter a fishing boat.
