I’m not one to usually share my vacations, considering I don’t really go on them, but the moment I stumbled upon this location, I knew I’d have to share it. For years Chris and I would always go to Ocean City, MD for an event, that coincided with my birthday. Since we don’t go to that event anymore, I wanted to do something small and local to us, to get away and just have some alone time. If you follow me on IG and watch my stories, you know we’ve been super busy renovating our upstairs. We needed a break mentally and physically.
I stumbled upon this place because of a jewelry maker I follow on IG. She posted a photo and I immediately found the place on AirBNB, and signed up for AirBNB just to rent this place out. I was actually surprised by how quickly Chris said yes. I knew money was an issue, but I think we both knew we needed it and took the leap. The pictures showcase the property exactly as is, but I wanted to take some more photos to showcase it in all it’s glory.
Seriously though, how dreamy is this place? To make a long story short, this was actually built as a shed to hold things in, but once the son requested it be a guitar playing, pot smoking, chill room….it never saw a shed item in it’s entire life. Lucky for both the kid and guests of the shed. I don’t want to say too much about the story of the shed, as there’s actually an article in the cabin that tells you all about it and the owner, Nina.
There were moments staring out the windows, that I truly thought I was in the middle of nowhere. Being able to look at the windows and see this, was beautiful. It even started falling leaves and it gave me all the fall feels one could ask for. We actually sat outside the first night there, with the windows open drinking some beers. It was one of my favorite things we did.
If there was a bonfire (which we spoke to Nina about), this place would have been even more amazing than it already was.
Here are some photos that really showcase the outside of the cabin and how you feel like you are secluded and alone in the middle of nowhere, even though you are literally a 30 second walk to Nina’s actual house.
Here is the beautiful inside of the cabin. Nina is a photographer and you can tell she loves art with all her portraits and paintings. My favorite part is the mural of all the Polaroids she’s taken of guests. When you go there, let me know if you see our pictures! Here’s a sneak peek of it.
And if you didn’t already know, my birthday weekend was more magical than just the cabin. Chris proposed to me when we were exploring Sleepy Hallow Cemetery. It was the perfect weekend getaway and I couldn’t have asked for a better place of proposal, a better partner, and a better cabin to have stayed in.
