Howdy Partner! Dust off your boots and glamp at Cowtown Cabins, the beach area's newest ranch experience, featuring a Wild West town in the making!

The "Old West Bank" is a one-room glamping hut that will take you back to the time of bank robberies & gold. However, this town bank comes with two twin-size beds in case you have an extra cowboy/ cowgirl with you! Enjoy a smart TV, a mini fridge, a microwave, and heating/ air during this unique experience. This space is light & bright due to the beautiful stained glass windows and you'll enjoy watching Herbie the Scottish Highland peacefully graze from the rear window view. Since this bank has a lot of gold, you can enjoy the rocking chairs on the front porch and keep an eye out for any bandits!

What can you expect? GLAMPING of course!! Come prepared and expect mixtures of both camping and glamping!
(((((((While our bathhouse is still under construction, there is access to a FLUSHABLE portable potty, an outdoor sink, and an outdoor hot/cold shower. See pictures. Please, no prissy bank tellers!))))))

While here at the ranch, you can also enjoy one of our many on-site experiences, such as "Chores N' Tour" (feeding, watering, and learning about 20+ farm animals), "Brush N' Bond" (brushing horses together & basic ground safety), Canvas painting under the oak tree, Project Poo (picking up the animal pens and making compost) or try out my specialty, horse whispering (learning the language of the horse.)

This stay caters to couples, two friends or relatives getting away and looking to unwind in a peaceful, unique setting and engage in memorable experiences. We're also popular for parent/ child trips, surprise birthdays, wedding proposals, family reunions, groups, and retreats. Renting multiple units or adjacent units is easy, just message about setting up your surprise day or renting a couple of units or the entire ranch for your special event- and YES, we do weddings too!

Cowtown Glamping Cabins is just minutes from Maryland, Delaware beaches and restaurants galore. Also nearby is Thunder Lagoon Waterpark, live concerts at Freeman Stage, local vineyards, grocery stores, McDonald's, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Ocean Downs Casino, hiking and biking at James Farm, and more. Everything you could want is at your fingertips and very close by. If you desire to be at the beach, but skip the loud condo neighbors and buzzing OC crowds, then this is the place for you!

*** Quick Note: We don’t have an option for early check-in or late checkouts. Check-in is from 4-9pm. Checkout is at 10am. We also do not allow pets and are service animal exempt. Thank you for leaving your animals safely at home while enjoying all 20+ of ours!

1. What should I bring on my trip? Shelley suggests bringing drinking water, slippers/ loafers, and campfire wood if using the firepit (or you can buy ours and have it delivered to your doorstep.) If you plan on doing "Chores N' Tour with Shelley and feeding all the farm animals, bring closed-toe shoes such as sneakers or boots. No flip-flops or sandals are allowed for animal experiences.

2. Can I wander around the ranch, unattended? Keep in mind we are a small ranch and while 1/2 of our property is open, the other 1/2 is livestock pastures and other Airbnb's. You can walk to the glampground, play a round of corn hole or the new horseshoe pit.

3. Can I access the all animals? The cabin backs up to a cattle pasture with "Herbie" the Highland to enjoy from your back windows. To access all the animals, book Chores N' Tour which is an hour-long experience feeding, watering and touring the entire ranch.

4. What other Airbnbs are at the ranch? There is a barndominium, tiny house, two bell tent yurts, other mini-huts, and an entire Old West-themed glampground at the ranch. YES! You can have friends and family RENT other units and make this a group experience. You can also see all of our listings if you click our name (logo.)

5. What's the history of the ranch? The property was a horse rescue for two decades. Some students take horse lessons here and the public books guided educational tours and paint parties. The ranch also produces a small amount of alpaca fiber and sheep wool that's sold yearly.

6. Can friends and family visit me while I'm at the ranch? No. The only people permitted to enter the property are registered guests. The public cannot access the property and we have a coded entrance gate. As a guest, you can expect to see other guests here, not people walking in off the street.

7. Can I catch a UBER or LYFT? Yes! You can easily catch a ride to Ocean City, Maryland, or beyond. You must be picked up at the entrance gate, not at the barndominium. How about food delivery? Yes! Order Doordash or pizza delivery. Just plan to meet your driver at the entrance gate, not the cabin.

8. Is there an option for early check-ins and late check-outs? No. Because this property has multiple rentals, we do not allow early check-ins or late check-outs. All cleans are performed on time and this keeps us on schedule for the next guest. Thanks for your understanding.

9. Are activities for children a different price than adults? All of our on-site activities are the same price for everyone.

10. Can I bring my pet or service animals? No. We do not allow any guest animals or pets to stay with us due to regulations and safety issues. We are also service animal exempt due to safety issues with nearby guardian livestock.

11. What is the smoking/ vaping policy? We operate a strict no-smoking and no-vaping policy at all times inside our rentals. The best place to smoke is by walking down the driveway or inside your car (away from the stable.)

12. How secure is the ranch? The property has six outdoor security cameras running and in use at all times. These outdoor security cameras help protect humans and animals alike. There's a coded entrance gate upon your arrival to the ranch and there is on-site management that is available during your stay. You cannot enter the property without a code and we ask that you do not give it out while you're here. The cabin also has a Ring doorbell.

13. This glamping hut sleeps two (2) guests *including* babies & children. We do not accommodate more than two (2) guests max.

14. What are the checkout procedures? We have a 4-step checkout process and ask that our guests leave the Jail the way they found it, (neat and tidy.) We love to brag about super clean guests who leave the space well cared for. You will see our checkout procedures posted inside. These include:

-Clear out fridge and microwave of food/ drinks
-Tidy up the Bankand leave it the way you found it
-Clean up any outdoor spaces you used
-Throw your Bank trash away into the dumpsters (at the property entrance.) Recycle is paper & plastic only.

Cancellation Policy: One hundred percent (100.00%) of the total booking charges (less $100.00 cancellation fee) will be refunded if the cancellation is made more than 30 days prior to the arrival date of the reservation. Fifty percent (50.00%) of the total booking charges (less $100.00 cancellation fee) will be refunded if the cancellation is made more than 14 days prior to the arrival date of the reservation.
