Rambling Victorian Beach House on Maryland's Eastern Shore

Family-friendly vacation home in Betterton
Welcome to Price Cottage in the quaint bayside village of Betterton, MD! Built in 1903 as an inn, this spacious home is now an 8-bedroom, 4-bathroom guest house filled with every amenity needed for a unique and memorable beach getaway. Anything but your typical beige beach house, Price Cottage is filled with history and color, with room for everyone (sleeps 16!) and extra everything - two kitchens, two porches, outside access to all three floors, ping pong, darts, kids toys, and everything you need for a day at the beach. All this set on a big lot walking distance to playgrounds, tennis, a great sit-down bar/restaurant, a pizza place/deli, and just 7 minutes downhill to the scenic and quiet Betterton Beach.

Betterton, dubbed 'the Jewel of the Chesapeake' sits on the Bay a short 85-minute drive from Philadelphia and under two hours from Baltimore and DC. The town was once served by weekending steamer ships full of Baltimore's working class, who filled the town's beach, beer halls, restaurants, Boardwalk attractions. and small family run inns like Price Cottage. Betterton is much quieter these days, but the serene beach, historic homes, and rural setting still draw vacationers in the know seeking a shoreside escape without the hustle of the bigger beach towns.

Beyond Betterton, Kent County offers other great destinations reached over quiet country roads. Rock Hall (30 minute drive) boasts great waterfront seafood restaurants and unique shops. The college town of Chestertown (20 minute drive) offers shopping, dining, a great Saturday morning Farmer's market, and activities and outings along the river. Georgetown/Galena (15 minute drive) has more local shops, lovely restaurants, and the renowned Georgetown yacht harbor, replete with waterfront dining and great people (and boat) watching. In between these destinations Kent County is a scenic patchwork of farms and forest, with many opportunities for hiking, biking, boating, and other outdoor activities.

Back at your home base, we've furnished Price Cottage to be the vacation getaway of our dreams. The front and rear porches feature dining tables, swings, and plenty of comfy rocking chairs and sofas for lazy morning coffee over a good book. Inside, the first floor features a well-equipped eat-in kitchen, dining room, large living area, two bedrooms (great for older folks!), and a full bathroom. On the second floor there are two bedrooms, one with an ensuite full bath, and our 1970's time capsule - "The Apartment." Once it's own one bedroom apartment, this space has a bedroom, bathroom, eat-in kitchen, ping pong room, and a whole lot of vintage charm. The recently renovated third floor boasts a huge living area with enormous sectional, smart TV, kids play area, and a large table for games, puzzles, or pizza in addition two three large bedrooms and a huge bathroom with shower and tub. Last but not least is 'The Cabin' an enclosed porch with dart board, foosball, a bevy of lawn games and beach toys, and one huge fish.

Price Cottage is ideally suited for larger gatherings of family and friends. Perfect for quiet times and reconnecting, there is room for everyone to enjoy time together and time apart. With the pod-like set up of bedrooms and bathrooms, each family can have their own space along with large areas to come together. We hope that we can be the ideal setting for your next memorable and unique vacation!

Great summer vacation
This was our first vacation with friends post-covid and we had an incredible time. The property has all the historical charm of an 1900s inn within walking distance of one of the best Chesapeake beaches. The second floor apartment is the perfect 1970’s time capsule for those of us who can still recall in detail that wood veneer and wall paper era. The third floor has all the clean lines and attention to views and natural light that characterize our contemporary, modern interior design. Play areas on each floor kept our 7 kids-total (ages ranging from 3 to 13) entertained the entire trip. Best yet, the perfectly tuned upright piano was a great addition our traditional hukele jam sessions. Huge thanks to our great host Mike for all his attention. He is a step away from becoming a premier host. Can wait to plan our next visit!
