Vintage home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Loved this old home . Felt like grandmas house in a sense that the style of everything is very outdated , but if you can put aside modern taste , it is a beautiful huge home with plenty of space and things to see and do.

We booked this house for a family reunion and had about 35 people ranging from baby all the way to adult , and we all had something to do!

I would recommend bringing a wagon if you have kids that get tired of walking in the boardwalk :)

Charming Ocean City Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house in order to host a bachelorette party for my baby sister, as well as 20 of her friends! Every woman commented on how charming the home was; and how wonderful the location was. The owner was attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend!

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the Sassafras Lodge. A total of 23 adults and two very little ones. The lodge had plenty of room for all. Accommadations were very comfortable for all, with a great living room & fabulous wrap around porch. Location was excellent, very close to beach, local eateries and groceries. We came from the 4 corners of the country for this reunion & it was near perfect.
