Cowtown offers a blend of educational, recreational, and themed experiences that cater to both overnight guests and the public. From themed accommodations to a variety of ranch activities and proximity to the ocean, Cowtown Cabins caters to diverse interests, making it an ideal destination for families, couples, and individuals looking for a unique getaway. It's a destination location where guests can step back in time while enjoying modern comforts, making it a charming retreat for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. 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 "County Jail" is a mini-glamping cabin that will take you back to the time of stealing horses and shootouts. However, this slammer comes with a comfy queen-sized bed (in case you have an extra inmate with you.) Enjoy this incarceration time while being 6 miles from Ocean City, MD and Delaware beaches. Inside the cell, you'll have a Smart TV with apps and movies, AC/ heat, mini-fridge and a coffee maker. If you get released early, you can sit out on the porch and enjoy two rocking chairs or some "yard time" around the firepit and BBQ :) What can you expect? GLAMPING of course!! Come prepared and expect mixtures of both camping outdoors 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 prisoners!)))))) 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) and happens at 10am daily. Other ranch activities require an appointment like: "Brush N' Bond" (brushing horses together and basic ground safety), Canvas painting under the oak tree, Project Poo (maintaining animal pens and making garden 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 western-style weddings too! Cowtown Glamping Cabins is just minutes from Maryland, Delaware beaches and is surround with restaurants galore. 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 Ecological Park, kayak rentals 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 DO NOT have an option for early check-ins, luggage drop offs 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!

Only 6 miles to the atlantic ocean, it's a short ride to North Ocean City, MD and Fenwick Island, DE beaches. 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 rentals. You can walk to the Old West village, play a round of corn hole or enjoy 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 the 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 rentals are at the ranch? There is a barndominium, tiny house, two bell tent yurts, other mini-huts, and an entire Old West-themed village at the ranch. YES! You can have friends and family RENT other units and make this a group experience. 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 and eggs 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 cabin. 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, luggage drop offs and late check-outs? No. Because this property has multiple rentals, we do not allow early check-ins or late check-outs. 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 mini-cabin sleeps two (2) guests *including* babies and children. We do not accommodate more than two (2) guests. 14. What are the checkout procedures? We have a 4-step checkout process and ask that our guests leave the cabin 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 on posted inside. These include: -Clear out fridge and microwave of food/ drinks -Tidy up the Jail house and leave it the way you found it -Clean up any outdoor spaces you used -Throw your Jail house trash away into the dumpsters (at the property entrance.)
