Renovated Family-Friendly Cottage with Private Hot Tub & Seasonal Pool

With both an interior and exterior that have been beautifully updated in a Key West-inspired style, this family-friendly cottage surrounds you with privacy, relaxation, and comfort in West Ocean City. Soak in your private hot tub, take a dip in your seasonal, above-ground pool, sit back and relax on the swings, and gather around the firepit each evening as you plan the next day's adventures!

This colorful home sits just seven miles from the beaches of Ocean City, providing you with easy access to memory-making adventures and local attractions.

Surrounded by rolling hills and open spaces, this renovated 1930s farmhouse welcomes you in and invites you to unwind. Kick back on the enclosed porch as you sip a refreshing lemonade. Hardwood floors, cheerful colors, and crafted accents run throughout the home. Connect to the free WiFi to send off an email or continue watching your favorite Netflix series or a good show on one of the 200-plus cable channels.

Toss the day's swimsuits in the private washer/dryer and head out to the backyard to fire up the gas grill for a barbecue. On hot days, the partial AC will keep the home nice and cool.

When hunger starts to hit, you can put the fully equipped kitchen to work to keep your crew fueled up and on the go. With standard appliances, white cabinets, and a convenient butcher-block island, you'll be able to whip up a palate-pleasing meal in no time!

After dinner, go enjoy a soak in the bubbling hot tub and feel the stress melt away. Pour a nightcap and tell some stories under the starry night sky as the flames dance in the outdoor firepit.

As the day winds down, this three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom home will easily play host to up to 10 guests. There are two bedrooms that will greet you with soft queen-size beds. The third room has a double-over-double bunk bed for your youngsters. The finished third floor features two twin beds, an additional sitting area with TV, and a foosball table.

Spend a day strolling along the beaches of Ocean City or hitting the waves on a rented stand-up paddleboard. Play a carnival-style game or two at Jolly Roger at the Pier, or ride a water slide at Splash Mountain. The kids (or the kid in you) will love the many amusement parks nearby - give Frontier Town, Grand Prix, and Baja a try. Head to Assateague Island National Seashore, explore by bike, or go horseback riding. Golfers will have a hay day trying out the many scenic championship-level courses in the area. And when you're in the mood for dining out, check out Hooper's Crab House for a multitude of seafood classics.

Whether you're kicking back in a rocking chair, relaxing in the hot tub, swimming in the above-ground pool, or exploring the local attractions, this renovated Maryland home gives you the chance to enjoy a stress-free stay in comfort and ease.

The house was charming and had a nice country feel to it, and location location location! Nice quiet hub spot away from the hustle and bustle of Ocean City, but still only a 10 minute drive to get there, and only 12 minutes to Assateague Island. There is a Walmart Supercenter and a Food Lion only about 5 minutes in either direction so stocking up the essentials was very easy as well. The hot tub was awesome and the pool and firepit were both fun additions. Why only 4 stars? The home needs some minor fixups (pool hose and ladder, leaning couch, bathroom blinds) all easily fixable, and the Vacasa contractor, Joe, did come out to address the pool ladder immediately and was VERY polite and pleasant. Would I stay there again? Absolutely! We will be looking to book with one of the owner's other properties as well!
Manager response:

We will be sure to follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience and hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!

They need to update. Pool, not filled to capacity and the support for the pool wall is broken. Looks like it’s been broken for more than a year. The ladder is unsafe, stopped the kids from using the pool. Pointed it out to maintenance guy and asked that it be replaced or fixed…. Never got a response, nor was it fixed after he said he would call it in..Toaster was broken, apparently according to another review it’s been that way since March. The front porch was unusable as the windows were missing and no screens, so the bugs …….
Made the best of it, though 799$ In fees paid to VaCasa is a joke if you are not monitoring the homes. The pool and ladder are not safe and you are being exposed to liability issues. We stopped our kids from using the pool in order to prevent an injury.
The house needs a refresh.
We made the best of it and if updated would love to come back.
Manager response:

We strive to have excellent, guest-focused service and we apologize if we missed the mark this time. We appreciate you sharing your feedback and concerns with us in order for us to address the areas in need of attention throughout the home. We will work with our local team to ensure these items are corrected for future guests, and we hope for an opportunity to provide you with an exceptional vacation experience in the future.

The house is cute and comfortable, and convenient to Assateague, Berlin and Ocean City. We didn't do any cooking (because there are some great places to eat in Berlin), so I don't know how well appointed the kitchen is. The beds are comfy, rooms are good sizes, nicely decorated. The kids loved having the attic space to themselves.
Kara C. Mar 2022
Still only 2 spoons and the toaster broken (no other silverware for a house for 10 people!)
So old, windows missing in the sun room, nails on the stairs to step on, the entire house leans. I could go on and on (and did on VRBO) But I don't recommend staying here. The hub tub (the reason we booked this place) was ice cold the whole weekend. Not a good place, we won't be back.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Kara. We sincerely apologize for the disappointment. We would have been happy to assist with any questions or concerns if we had been notified during your time with us. Our local team strives to provide every one of our guests with the best vacation possible. We are so sorry if our standards were not met during your time with us!

First off, hot tub was amazing and super clean (such an amazing bonus for the house)! The yard was super cool and can’t wait to hopefully come back and use it in the summer. The house was nice, but if you’re tall you’ll have a tough time upstairs as the ceilings are quite low. Beds are all very nice and firm. House smelled very clean and looked great upon arrival. My only complaint was the kitchen. The toaster is broken, there’s no where to make ice, not a lot of glasses to use (I did appreciate the plastic ones to use outdoors tho!), and there were no oven cooking supplies (pans, Pyrex, etc). Definitely a bare bone house, so bring oil/salt/pepper etc. when coming.

Overall, super great for a little weekend away and love how close it is to beach and assateague.

This house was amazing! Not far from the beach and private enough that we didn’t have to deal with noise and all the people like we would have in ocean city! Would definitely book again!
Cris y. Aug 2020
This house had everything you want/need for a comfortable, fun and relaxing stay near the beach. The town of Berlin (short drive) is filled with awesome restaurants, eateries and shops. We were 13 minutes from assateague beach, super convenient and OC is just a few minutes further. Super relaxing! Great getaway;)

This house has a lot of character. A nice home away from home. Nice layout, plenty of room and nice out door space to cookout and hangout!
Gary M. Jul 2018
This house was everything that we wanted. From the swings, to the hot tub.. my family had a great time and we will definitely be back. Thanks for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

I loved the hot tub
Kasey K. Apr 2018
Very comfortable and homey old farmhouse that accommodated my party of 8 easily and it was VERY clean. We loved spending our time on the patio; dinners outside, hammock chairs, and a big back yard. After the kids went to bed, the adults enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit! The location is very quiet and private, but not a long drive to this to see and do like Ocean City and Assateague Island, (the wild horses were our favorite!) We all loved our stay so much that we didn't want to leave! We highly recommend!
Christina L. Mar 2018
The house was great other then a few issues. We stayed in the summer and the TVs got several channels. The TVs only got 2-3 channels. Also the house was very cold in some areas they needed to add a few more space heaters.

Nestled in the open corn fields in Berlin Maryland,The Brooklyn Cottage is a relaxing and quaint home to anchor a vacation stay. A simple gravel and grass driveway leads to a small 3 level farmhouse with room and fun for all. Outside is a large patio with a hot tub,fire pit,patio table/ chairs and a pergola with 4 canvas floating chairs,grill and unique carved benches and chairs. Inside is a decent kitchen,LR,DR and laundry/powder room. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms with tv and 3rd floor is a loft with sofa/fuseball table. There is an enclosed front porch with picnic table for leisurely morning coffe or a family night cracked crab fest. A supermarket is just 5 mins away and all of Ocean City is just a short drive on Rt. 50. Don't forget downtown Berlin for a taste of very quaint small town America. All in all I give The Brooklyn Cottage high marks for a nicely maintained house that has something for everyone whether you want to do something or nothing at all. If I am ever staying in Berlin again this will be my go to place!

Convenient to Ocean City and Assateague Island, enough space for our family of 5 and a friend
Michael W. Jul 2017
Our family enjoyed our stay here. Lots of room to relax and hang out with the kids on the large back patio. Hot tub and fire pit were great as well. Location was close to both Assateague and OC beaches.
Chelsea B. Jul 2017
Although we only stayed for the weekend, we want to come back! There were 7 girls, and 6 of us slept together. Luckily we've all known each other for a very long time, so it wasnt awkward. We definitely plan on coming back, hopefully next year. Area was amazing, really convinent to the beach, grocery stores, restaurants, pharmacies, you name it. Beautiful scenery, quiet but still a little city vibe. Definitely coming back. We all miss the pony Bernard (thats what we named him, dont know his real name), he was the special guest to our bachlorette party (gathering, really. We didnt actually party).
Melanie L. Jul 2017
We had a great stay. There were a few toilet issues but I would stay here again.

Great house so close to ocean city
John B. May 2017
Nice house a short distance from town. Only issue at all was the neighbors waking us at 3 in the morning when there party was over.
