With diverse urban centers, Civil War sites, and a beautiful coastline, Maryland is one of the most-visited states in the union. Hike part of the Appalachian Trail, try your hand at clam digging on the coastal bays, or check out a baseball game in Baltimore. Whatever you choose, Maryland has something for everyone, and a stay in one of our Maryland vacation rentals ensures you feel right at home during your explorations.
Like many of its East Coast neighbors, Maryland is best known for its lovely beaches, perhaps most notably Ocean City. Maryland is also home to myriad state parks and green spaces, making it truly - as National Geographic magazine once said - "America in miniature."
Baltimore is the largest city in Maryland with more than a half-million residents and is home to Camden Yards - where the Baltimore Orioles play - as well as the Preakness Stakes, part of horse racing's Triple Crown. The Baltimore Museum of Art, which has the world's largest collection of Matisse paintings, is also located here, as is the birthplace of Babe Ruth - so hit the Babe Ruth Birthplace & Museum if you are a fan of the famous slugger. Annapolis, the state capital, is the oldest capital in the nation and is home to the U.S. Naval Academy and pristine examples of 18th-century architecture.
Our Maryland vacation rentals in the coastal hamlets offer a pleasing respite from the big cities. Ocean City is arguably the main attraction of Maryland's shore, and sees an influx of sun worshippers and kite surfers come summer. The less-traveled Eastern Shore, extending from Chesapeake Bay to the Atlantic, offers plenty of small-town delights. Cambridge features the 27,000 acre Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, where you can spy 250 species of birds and more than 100 types of plants.
Out at the Western edge of the state, you'll find our Deep Creek Lake vacation rentals in the midst of the Garrett County woods. A water-lover's paradise, Deep Creek Lake is over 3900 acres of fishing, boating, and water sport bliss. In the winter, Deep Creek transforms into a ski destination, with Wisp resort's ski runs just north of the lake. The beautiful hiking (and snowshoeing) trails that surround Deep Creek Lake offer great exploring opportunities in any season.
From cities teeming with energy to small towns with a slower pace of life, Maryland has it all...and our Maryland vacation rentals are the choice spot from which one can explore every corner!
