We stayed at Back Bay Bungalows for 3 nights. We wish it had been more. The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. The views were wonderful. We spent a lot of time just sitting on the porch watching the sunrises and the sunsets. We enjoyed crabbing off the piers one day and pulled in quite a catch. We steamed them right there with the provided crab pot. Our "neighbors" were all very nice and we would chat often. Although it seems like you are in a very secluded area, everything you need (restaurants, grocery stores, etc.) is still only a few minutes away. Loved it!

We will definitely come back in the future.

It is clear that the owner really cares about the Back Bay Bungalows. The cottages are charming, well equipped, modern, and clean. The grounds and surrounding bay access draw you outside to enjoy picnics out on the point or a nap on the hammock, ping pong, crabbing and fishing from the pier. There are also kayaks, paddles and life vests available for guests on a grab and go type system. The on-site management, Ev and Bill certainly made me feel welcome and they were both very helpful.

“This was my kayak-fishing-photo paradise of peace and tranquility”

The location of this property is perfect to get to busy Ocean City if you want it, or any regular grocery shopping and outlet stores. For me it was the quiet and views just from this cottage that makes me never want to leave. I stayed 2 weeks and even when it rained, the cottage is surrounded by water so I could enjoy the views from inside or the porch. There are beautiful birds to photograph right there, so bring your binoculars. The caretakers on the premises are excellent and friendly, the access is easy to get there, but if you want to kayak, you have Turville Creek on the side or on out to the Bay or many inlets, plus you are 30 min from Pocomoke River State Park, which has kayaking trails and 1 hour from Janes Island, plus many others, and also Assateague is only 20 minutes away... DNR site will give you the details on kayaking trails nearby and kayak rentals at parks, but they supply kayaks at the cottage to use there. A special find.

We found Bbb on tripadvisor and read only great reviews. We decided to try it out for the first time and we will definitely return. The hosts were so welcoming and hospitable - made my whole family feel at home. It is a great location for our day trips to asseteague beach and night trips to oc boardwalk. However, the true surprise was not wanting to leave the Back Bay Area. With no experience we, a family of 4 including 10 and 7 year old, took on kayaking and we are hooked. We also tried fishing - so much fun. We will be ready to try crabbing next year. Beyond the activities, the view and accommodations were so relaxing - kids in the sand and relaxing in the hammocks. Other guests were fantastic too!
We truly can't recommend this place enough.

What a great place! The owners, along with the guest themselves, are so hospitable and friendly. The place is very convenient for nearby golf courses and THE Ocean City, and also has great restaurants nearby. There are so many things to do like fishing, boating, and kayaking, especially crabbing. The actual place looks a lot better than it is on the website. This place is greatly recommended for families with small children.
With such a reasonable price, you would want to stay for a long time.
