The cottage boasts a 270 degree waterfront view, private dock out back that's fully protected from tides and wind, and plenty of parking right outside the house.

About Mark

I enjoy a great getaway from the city. This property has it all. Unfortunately, I can't escape every week so I decided to share the unique experience of the public landing cottage to the masses.

Mark purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Mark chose Snow Hill

If you have 3k-5k to spend on a summer vacation, this place is not for you. If you need the bars and nightlife, this place is not for you.

If you are looking for a peaceful retreat, like boating, hunting, fishing, and a place you don't have to worry about the hustle and bustle... This place is for you.

Bring either your- boat, pet, fishing stuff, hunting stuff, kids, grandkids. It is an escape from over crowded vacations.

What makes this cottage unique

Dock which can fit almost any size boat and a couple hundred feet to the boat ramp.

Semi private beach a couple hundred feet away that allows pets year around.

Low traffic area

Smoking allowed outside


Porch with a great sunrise

270 degree views

Sleeps 4

New kitchen and bath

270 degree views of water

Public pier a couple hundred yards away

Small town with good restaurants,bars, antiques.

Ocean city 30 minute drive

Assateague 5 miles by boat

Wonderful ~ Again!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year for going to the Public Landing Wharf Rd. cottage and I imagine that we will be going again next year, Lord willing! Mark & Barbara answered any concerns promptly.

The best way for me to sum it up is WONDERFUL!

~ Sue

As my husband summed it up so well:

I wanted to thank You for another wonderful Public Landing Retreat. Wanted to stay longer but Maria may have been an Issue this Week. We all had a Great Time. Coffee Walks with Zadok- Shepard dog, Played my Horn in Laundry Room-great Acoustics, Dinners & Movies, Spence Baptist Church, AI, Looking for Homes, Friend from Ocean Pines visit and Much More.

Great week away!

  • 5 of 5

Mark was great throughout our stay and the house was lovely. We really enjoyed the location of this house -- close enough to both sides of Assateague, OC, and other destinations and plenty to do, but also remote and rural allowing for a recharge. Our dogs loved the small beach that is near the house; one of our dogs is older and this was perfect for him. There are miles and miles of great biking roads nearby. Loved this little town - nice neighbors and great diversity using the public pier. Would not hesitate to stay again.

Very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The location is very nice (chill but a close drive to "action" like OC if you're in the mood for it) and the whole area is very welcoming and tranquil with great neighbors. The cottage is a relaxing place to stay and has everything you need to be comfortable. We even had very reliable wi-fi service and could stream netflix shows when we weren't enjoying the outdoors and exploring. It was also wonderful to find a truly pet friendly rental and our dog loved it as much as we did. It was easy to communicate with Mark both before and during the stay, and there was helpful info left for us about the house and attractions in the area. We would definitely come back again and recommend it to others looking for a low key beach get-away.

End of the Road Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The last leg of the trip to this wonderful and quaint cottage brings you to a gorgeous panoramic view of the Chincoteague Bay. As you drive to the last house on the left, it is easy to see the cozy strip of beach at the end of the road that is available for public use.

The Saturday we arrived was extremely humid, but the newly installed wall mounted split unit had no problem keeping the entire cottage comfortable. When the humidity finally dropped, it is easy to adjust the unit using the provided remote (or just turn off completely to let the fresh coastal breezes blow through the house).

The cottage is furnished with everything you would need to settle in on day one. Everything was freshly cleaned and the layout gives the two main rooms a very spacious and open feeling. The front porch/sun room is perfect for watching the sunrise over the bay and enjoy a morning coffee. The size was just right for us (myself and my wife) and our two dogs.

Throughout the week there is plenty to keep you occupied. There are numerous nearby sites and attractions--including Assateauge State Park--providing campgrounds, beach access, river tours, hiking, and more. Ocean City is a short drive away, perfect for a day trip to the seaside shops and restaurants.

Any questions we had were promptly answered by Mark through the HomeAway app.

We highly recommend this rental for other couples or small families, with or without pets. Our entire trip was incredibly relaxing and we hope to visit again soon.

The Perfect Place for Us

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband and I and two adult children) had a wonderful week at Public Landing. If you are looking for a peaceful place off the beaten path then this is the place for you. The house itself feels like a home, and I compliment the owners for their approach. It was wonderful to be able to bring our dog! We began and ended the week with some pretty intense heat and appreciated the air-conditioning, but tried to spend as much time outdoors as possible. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular, and watching shooting stars against the backdrop of the Milky Way was really special. The private boat dock behind the house, small beach a few hundred yards away, and public fishing pier down the road allowed us to kayak, swim, crab and fish with ease. We also rented kayaks and two bikes, to supplement our own, from Pocomoke River Kayak in Snow Hill. I can't recommend them enough. We had a few choppy afternoons on the bay, but there are a lot of interesting creeks and channels to explore by kayak. The roads are also ideal for biking. Thank you, Mark! We hope to come back next year.
