Large Estate & Cottage w/ Private Pool, Two Hot Tubs, Firepits, & Game Room

Make your next family reunion or group retreat a memorable one at this eight-bedroom West Ocean City property, an expansive estate and adjacent cottage with incredible amenities that include a private swimming pool, two hot tubs, a well-stocked game room with a wet bar, and plentiful outdoor space for barbecues and celebrations.

This lush, three-and-a-half-acre property includes two separate homes that sit a few miles west of downtown Ocean City and north of Assateague State Park. The 5,000-square-foot Brooklyn Estate offers five bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, and a sixth bedroom in the pool house that is detached from the home. The bathroom in the pool house is seasonal, but the bedroom can be occupied year-round. The 1930s-era Brooklyn Cottage has three bedrooms and one-and-a-half baths.

Your vacation begins at the main house, where a beautifully manicured lawn welcomes you home. Step inside to find an air conditioned living space full of natural light, with two-story ceilings, polished tile floors, and a wood-burning fireplace with an immense brick facade.

The elegant kitchen is at the heart of this home, offering pristine stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher), granite countertops, and richly hued wood cabinets. Get the whole group together to make pancakes each morning and enjoy sitting down at the eight-person dining room.

Spend the glorious days of spring and summer outdoors, splashing with your children in the private pool (which is open from May until September), practicing your jump shot in the pool-side basketball hoop, and hosting friends for fun-filled get-togethers. The patio includes an outdoor fireplace, a bar, a gas grill, and plentiful seating, while the lawn has space for the kids to run around.

As the sun sets each evening, gaze at the stars in the warmth of the six-person hot tub, or head over to the cottage to use the four-person Jacuzzi. Back inside the main house, mix a few cocktails at the wet bar in the game room, and challenge your loved ones to a few rounds of foosball and pool.

There's no better place to end the evening than on the plush sofas in the living room, gathered in front of the big-screen TV with upgraded Comcast cable to have 200 plus channels and streaming capabilities. Most rooms have Smart TVs as well to stream Comcast, Netflix, or Amazon with ease. Choose a movie from the DVD library, use the WiFi to plan the next day's activities, or enjoy a bit of privacy by watching one of the 12 other TVs in the kitchen, game room, barbecue area, and bedrooms.

In the main house, you'll find five bedrooms with one king bed, five queen beds, and two double beds. The cottage features three bedrooms with two queen beds, a double-over-double bunk, and two twin beds.

The cottage is also a wonderfully equipped home in its own right, offering partial air conditioning, its very own kitchen, a six-person dining room, and a charming sitting room. You'll also find a sunroom and an outdoor patio with a bar area, a firepit, and plentiful seating for evening cookouts. Don't hesitate to take a dip in the new above-ground pool or soak in bliss in the hot tub!

With a beautiful country setting that's just a short drive from Maryland's shore, this West Ocean City property is ideal for families in search of summer sun, entertainment, and relaxation. Head to Ocean City for the day to surf and sunbathe, peruse the eateries and arcades on the historic boardwalk, and test your nerves on the thrilling rides at Jolly Roger Amusement Park 10 miles east.

Spend a day exploring the gorgeous expanse of Assateague State Park just nine miles south, or tee off at the Glen Riddle Golf Club or the Ocean Pines Golf & Country Club - both of which welcome non-members. Your kids will also delight in a visit to the Old West in Frontier Town, where they can pan for gold, witness gunfights, and see a Wild West Show just five miles south.

Treat your loved ones to a summer vacation they'll never forget - reserve your stay at this West Ocean City property today!

Advertised as a 6 bedrooms at the main house, only 5 bedrooms. TV's did not work and did not come to fix. The swamp pool was unusable, I called Monday morning and it never got fixed during my stay. If the property manager did a walk through Sunday before check-in, you would have known the issues of the home
Manager response:
Karen, thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback. We are so sorry this was your experience while staying with us. We apologize for the condition of the pool upon your arrival. The pool at this home is cleaned and serviced regularly and we apologize if this was missed and appreciate you bringing it to our attention. The local team was made aware of the issues regarding the televisions in the home. They are now working as they should. We regret to hear you felt the listing was misleading, we have reviewed the listing and found it to be accurate. We encourage guests to reach out with any questions or concerns before booking, as we are happy to help. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement and we hope we have the opportunity to impress you in the future.

We loved our stay at the Brooklyn Estate and Cottage. We actually had our whole Bridal Party stay there was part of their gift for being in our wedding. We had a minor maintenance issues with a door handle that was fixed right away. The trash picked didn’t come when supposed to but we think bc of the potential tropical storm
on the area but property manager was great about helping getting trash picked up. The place was clean and everyone had a great time. The only issue we had was with flies. They were everywhere. In the house outside the house we couldn’t get away from them. May want to consider adding something around the house to keep flies away. And the house is stock with random utensils and pots and pans and missing most basic needs. Like the pot to the coffee pot was missing. Couldn’t find a baking sheet but could make a bunt cake or ice cream cone shaped cupcakes. Just random but those were just small things and we made due and had a great time.
Manager response:
Hi, Diane! Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We do apologize for the issues you experienced. The missing kitchen items are getting replaced, and we are getting the flies professionally treated. Congratulations and thanks again for allowing us to be your host as you started your lives together!!

We stayed at this house for a family vacation to Ocean City. We were on the phone daily to have things taken care of from( a green swimming pool )to( having the previous groups garbage picked up) to( no propane the first day to cook with) to (the outside fridge not working). If your planning a stay here be ready to swat a lot of flys in the house. The actual house is beautiful but for the price it didn't meet expectations from anyone in our group.
Manager response:
Francis, We are sorry to have been unable to provide you with a pleasant and relaxing vacation experience. We strive to maintain a standard of excellence in home cleanliness and upkeep for the comfort of our guests in addition to being readily available to assist in addressing any questions or concerns that might arise. We appreciate the opportunity to address any outlying concerns with our local team to ensure our service standards are being thoroughly met. We hope to have another opportunity to host you again in the future!

The highlight was the pool/hot tub area. That was a great meeting place. The house was in ok shape and the bedrooms were fine. The cottage was pretty rustic and the place needed some maintenance, but overall it served our purposes and it was quiet and close to our golf locations.
Debbie M. Aug 2019
Close to beach and attractions. Having the pool at the home was the best part. Some parts of the home are outdated. Cottage was good with window A.C. units throughout but there was an ant issue. Ant traps and spray were provided. Location of home is in the middle of a field so it’s prone to normal bug issues. Some reviews reported roaches and chlorine odor in one of the bedrooms, and I’m happy to report we did not have these issues.
Krystle F. Aug 2019
There were several items that needed to addressed. There was a water leak in master bathroom that was clearly there for a while. The ceiling would leak when someone took shower. There was no cable in Rooms. When asked they said ppl stole the Roku remotes. The oven door wouldn’t lock and kept beeping. There was only one frying pan. A few of the appliances didn’t work like coffee maker. Some of the burners wouldn’t light on gas stove. The house had a very strong stale smell. The vents were dirty and needed to be cleaned. They second house had ants really bad. Two of the rooms in house had no power to plugs. Overall there is a lot of things that need to be addressed but maintenance hasn’t done it yet. Once items are fixed I’m the house will be in good shape.
Manager response:
Thank you so much for your feedback, Krystle. The leak is being investigated and seems to be from improper shower use. Maintenance is making needed adjustments, and we will continue to monitor. Universal remotes will be purchased and connected to the TV's so that all devices are available for use as they should be and additional cookware will also be purchased. Unfortunately, the oven is beyond repair, so maintenance has photographed and taken measurements, and the owner is picking out a replacement which will be in place as soon as possible. The home has had pest control services for ants, but all guests are encouraged to be sure that food is properly sealed and stored during the course of their stay. We hope to see you again!

Our family loved the pool and the pool table. The Estate was beautiful.

Fit our group well. Lots of room.
Howard S. May 2019
We had 20 guys here for a golf trip, and we rented the estate and the cottage for a long weekend. When they walked into the estate they thought we were at the wrong house because it was too nice. The cottage was great too and we could not have done without it, but the estate is truly a sight to behold. There was plenty of room for us to sleep between the two houses.

As nice as the indoor eating areas were we really did not use them. The weather was nice enough that we ate outside every chance we got. The pool was a little too cold for most in mid-May but some of us went in every day. Really big and always clean.

The basketball court outback was a surprise that I do not recall reading about when I reserved our trip. The guys got a LOT of use out of the basketball court.

We spent half of our awake time in pool area (especially the covered area). It had a fridge, a charcoal cooking area, fireplace and a lot of seating. We brought extra folding chairs which worked out well for this spot since nobody wanted to be inside once someone brought the guitars out and the songs started.

We split time cooking at the estate using the charcoal grill and the propane grill which we would use when we needed more control. The cottage had grills too but we did not need them.

The game room was great and we spent a good amount of night time there playing pool.

I feel like we could have had some good times in the cottage too but there was no need since everyone fit in the pool area of the estate. Some guys did spend some time napping in the hanging chairs which are in the back of the cottage.

To a man, they each asked me to try to get this place again for next year's trip.

I wish I could go back next weekend.

Very spacious location with beautiful pool and outside entertainment area. Would definitely visit again.
Hiten P. Aug 2018
The property is great for family get togethers and is very close to the shore. The house manager is also very easy to work with and highly accommodating. I would def recommend this property.
Anna H. Jul 2018
We had a great time, but there were issues.

The house had a lot of issues that should have been dealt with before we got there. Cans and cups in the skimmer, the hottub not working and very dirty, and really a list of other things. We did contact the management company and they took care of the main issues the following day, but it would have been nice to come to a nice clean house with working amenities and appliances. There were also a ton of flies, which was a little gross, but fine. The one other thing was the one “queen” bedroom is in the pool house. It would be nice it that were noted in the description as well as 2 of the queens were not really queen sized beds.

That being said, the location was great, the house was big enough for all of our family for our get together, and the house was beautiful. We still had a great time.
Manager response:
We apologize this guest did not arrive to a ready hot tub due to our normal tech being out for surgery. We have followed-up with housekeeping on always inspecting the outdoors, and we have clarified the bedroom situation in our description. Thank you!
Jennifer M. Jul 2018
This was the perfect place for our family get away. Plenty of space to spread out and so much to do. We would definitely return!
Michael V. May 2018
Renting the two houses provided everyone a private bedroom, something we have not experienced previously. Outdoor pool was great as well as the hot tub after playing golf. Game room consisted of a pool table and a foosball table. Haven't played that in years. Guys all had a lot of fun. Plenty of parking on top of that.
Danae A. Jan 2018
What a wonderful time we had staying at this property. Despite the weather and the things that come with really cold temperatures, it was a great stay. Plenty of space for lots of people. The open floor plan makes it very easy to have people doing their own things in the different areas of the house. If only it were Summer and we could use the Pool and Hot Tubs!!!! Thank you so much and we hope to rent next January for the Ocean City Youth Rally 2019.
Alan P. Oct 2017
Great place to have a large group.
William C. Jul 2017
This was the best venue we have had for our family's annual reunion. It was spacious for the size of our group and the amenites (pool,hot tub, outdoor fireplace/bar area, game room) gave everyone something to enjoy. The short drive to Ocean City beaches made an ocean swim an easy morning or afternoon event. Several of us made the hour trip to the Chincoteague pony swim for an unforgettable adventure. Thank you for providing great vacation memories in 2017.
Jesse B. Jul 2017
This was a wonderful place to stay. The two houses allowed us to have the more active group in one location while people who had an early bedtime could stay in the second house. The amenities were very enjoyable and we enjoyed grilling out, swimming, and just sitting watching the stars from the pool chairs.
Donna O. Jun 2017
We had a staff retreat and it could not have been better!
