Great cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (family of four plus dog) enjoyed our time at the Seahorse cottage. The cottage was clean and well-appointed, with a terrific amount of kitchen supplies including coffee maker, blender, and cooking utensils. Towels, sheets, and blankets were all super soft and quality materials. The cottage had cable, wifi, and a DVD player, which was an awesome way to fill a rainy afternoon. The host has also provided Scrabble, Chess, and a jigsaw puzzle for quiet entertainment as well.

We walked to the beach, to restaurants, and to ice cream. At the Cold Penguin, we enjoyed great waffle cones and even got a beef-flavored doggie sundae (which was a big hit, BTW.) Around the corner is Neptune's, where we had good pizza and burgers. We were so close, I was able to run back to the cottage quickly for jackets when the restaurant got too cold. Thanks to the cottage we were able to keep our out-of-pocket costs pretty low.

Our host was very accessible and friendly. Gary and his wife live adjacent to the cottage and have lots of great recommendations for enjoying their town.

A wonderful weekend for our dogs and us.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly as described. It was well supplied with all the amenities you need in both kitchen and bath. We will definitely be going back again. It is within walking distance to just about everything.

This cottage was more quaint than the pictures showed. My sister and I were very happy with the property. The house was clean, well equipped throughout and comfortable. It was nice to also find a washer and dryer available. We were able to let our two dogs out in the back yard without having to worry about them getting out. They had plenty of room to explore. We thoroughly enjoyed North Beach and the proximity of the Bay front pier and walking path, although it was unseasonably cold during our stay. We made fast friends with Sharon at the Wine Shop near the bay. :-) I am planning a trip later in the year and will definitely book this property again. Thank you, Gary and Betty!

I would recommend this property to friends as well as booking through VRBO, which I found to be easy to navigate.

Love the Seahorse Cottage and Gary too!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Seahorse Cottage in North Beach Maryland a block from the bay. It is pet friendly and when our two little dogs arrived they really seemed to remember the cottage yard and leapt around when we arrived. We love the airy and sunny space. Even though it was a rather cold and windy weekend, we enjoyed the time away and the warm and sunny kitchen. We went to the bay and walked the boardwalk with the dogs. We love the local color and the excellent seafood at the Neptune Cafe around the corner. Just a walk away. Gary the proprieter lives next door and is a gracious and kind host. We like the artistic spirit of the cottage and knowing that Gary is an artist is great too. Judith, Glen , Rosie and Sophie Kennedy Mazis

As soon as we walked into this darling cottage, we loved it! It was cozy but open, there were TWO fenced yards, off street parking... the list goes on! The kitchen had everything including coffee! There was always something new to see, from the artwork to the darling little doorstop in the bathroom, the rustic and clever use of wood and space... the adorable kitchen clock... just fun!

Gary was very nice, helpful, hospitable... we totally enjoyed meeting him!

My only regret was that we did not get to spend more time at the cottage! Our last morning there, we actually got to take a nice walk with our dogs down to the Chesapeake and along the boardwalk. The location is ideal!

Charming Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

The Seahorse Guest Cottage was perfect for our trip. It was well-equipped, pet-friendly and had plenty of room for our party of three. We loved the fenced in back yard with deck and nice seating, as well as its proximity to the North Beach boardwalk. Lovely stay.
