Chesapeake Bay Vacation Rentals

Chesapeake Bay Vacation Rentals

Vacation Home Rentals


Hotels and Bed and Breakfasts are nice, but sometimes you want the room, freedom and amenities that a vacation home provides.

We are happy to provide a selection of Chesapeake Bay region homes available as vacation rentals.

A vacation rental house may be the perfect option for family gatherings, reunions, or just a quiet getaway.  Take a look at the different options available. Some are large, with lots of bedrooms, and well-suited to large gatherings. Others are cozy cottages, best for couples or small families.

Many of the vacation rentals available are waterfront, while others have convenient downtown locations. We’ve listed a lot of properties here, but there are still more available.

If you don’t see what you’re looking for on our list, check the complete vacation rental listings at VRBO and TripAdvisor. You’re sure to find something that suits your needs.

If prices are a little too high for your budget, consider scheduling your vacation off the peak season. Spring and fall are beautiful times of year in the Chesapeake Bay region and some of the home owners offer lower rates outside the summer season. Another money-saving option is to look for newly listed homes, which often have discounted rates. See newly listed vacation rentals at VRBO. com.
