About the property

House, 8 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

This spacious, non-smoking home is ideal for family vacations and reunions. Owned since 1946 by a Baltimore family, it remains their summer "cottage". The interior was renovated, and professionally decorated in 2002 to create casual comfort and the warmth of "home".

From the all new kitchen, new furnishings, large dining room and living room, to the cozy sunroom and wonderful porches you will find a retreat that rests in the middle of everything. The seven bedrooms and den are all unique and charming. Many personal and designer touches add to a truly memorable stay.

Enjoy the sunrise over the ocean, stroll the beach, or just sit in a rocker and watch the activity of the beach and the boardwalk right at your door. The shuttle bus picks up at the end of the street; the boardwalk train is at the front step. All that Ocean City has to offer is convenient and close by...Relax, renew, have fun in the sun. This is the best seat in town!

Weekly Rentals Spring through Summer 4 day Minimum till Mid September.

Our 2nd Stay at The Porch! Love that House!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at The Porch. We visited OC 3 years ago and stayed there. We had such a wonderful time we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. The house is in a perfect location ON the Boardwalk (Surf lessons next door, bike & Segway rentals within a block, pizza next door, fries within a block and the pier rides and fishing a short walk). We only used our car to go to the grocery store and a couple of restaurants! The kitchen is well stocked for cooking, there are two refrigerators, the dining room table has room for everyone to eat or play cards/games, and the porch is perfect for morning coffee or evening cocktails. We had 3 generations under one roof and everyone was comfortable and had their own space. Judy the owner is friendly and very responsive, and gives the best crab cake recommendations :) We hope to return to OC and stay at The Porch again! Love that house!
