Quaint, great fenced yard

  • 3 of 5

The owners were really kind. The yard for our dogs was great, although it had not been tended to in a very long time due I’m sure to all the rain we’ve had combined with long overdue overgrowth in general. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was well kept although I washed EVERYTHING in the kitchen before use. The bathroom was “newer”. The place just needs some TLC and an exterminator. I’m sure the ant problem could be alleviated with a massive yard clean up!

40 minutes from DC...

  • 5 of 5

But world of relaxation that feels a lot farther. Our 7 year old loved Calvert Cliff expedition and the seafood found everywhere.

Highly recommend the organic vegetable and meat market on bay blvd

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to spend the Columbus-day weekend away from the city (Washington, DC). The drive was enjoyable (50 minutes) with all the fall colors. The cottage is very nice and in close proximity to all the necessary shops. I enjoyed the boardwalk, the friendly people, and the cure shops and restaurants. I will definitely come back.

A Quaint Cottage Not to Be Overlooked

  • 5 of 5

Seahorse Cottage is a delightful little place right in the heart of all North Beach has to offer. Located within walking distance to the beach, Boardwalk, farmer's market, local pubs and restaurants, it is a great place for a bit of down time or not. You choose the energy of your vacation and Seahorse is close enough to allow you to do just that. The locals are friendly and welcoming. The cottage is clean and quaint. If like me, you travel with your dog, Seahorse is pet friendly with a fenced in yard. Seahorse is also "close enough". If you want a place to stay that is a central resting place, Seahorse's proximity to Annapolis, D.C., and Baltimore allow you the opportunity to expand beyond given the time to do it. Seahorse Cottage is not to be overlooked.

Quirky little cottage in small beach town

  • 5 of 5

Seahorse cottage is a unique little cottage in the small beach town of North Beach, MD. The location is excellent. We parked our car and did not have to move it for the rest of the weekend. Restaurants, shops and boardwalk are all within short walking distance. We have two dogs so this was an excellent rental for us as there is a completely fenced front and back yard. I was worried as in the pictures, the fence did not look that high, so I was delighted to discover that the back yard has a 6 foot perimeter fence (one of my dogs is tall and a great jumper!). The cottage is clean and bright and has everything you need for your stay, plates, cups, glasses, cookware etc. Towels and linens were clean and fresh and all appliances were clean and in good repair. The walls have lovely art work by local artists. This is a great place to have a weekend retreat. Enjoy some walks along the boardwalk, buy some wine in the little wine shop in town, have a good meal at the restaurants (we found 3 good ones within walking distance) and have a look around the art gallery or antique shops. Overall a nice relaxing restful weekend in a cute little beach cottage.
