They had a choice of indoor or outdoor pools - both were great, but the indoor pool had a pirate theme and slides for the kids too. There was putt putt golf,...

This was our first time staying here. Had heard many good things. Very clean and friendly staff. Lots of things for the kids to do while the parents relax. Have activities planned for rainy days. Shuttle service to the beach/boardwalk was great. Never had to wait long for the next shuttle to arrive. Have rooms and cabins to choose from.

We just got back from a 4 night stay at Francis Scott Key Family Resort and were overall very happy with our stay. Our first impression of the room was that the room was a lot smaller than we are used to (we were in the Ranch, not in an end unit which are larger). We requested to upgrade to...

We love when our guests hate to leave...it means we are doing our job! It is so gratifying watching our family reunions re-connect and enjoy each other. Life moves pretty fast so it is good to slow down and enjoy your vacation days! Sincerely Annemarie Dickerson Owner

Reviewed 31 July 2014

In my opinion this place is over all a 9.5 out of 10. The rooms are clean, the staff were very helpful and friendly, and the cost was not bad considering the amenities they offer with your admission price. The pools and pirate ship were a big hit with my 2 year old son. We will be coming again next...
