This lovely home is perfect for IronMan racers looking for comfortable weekend accommodations and good value. Located 2.5 miles from Great Marsh Park and .9 miles from Mace's Lane Middle School, this home is very convenient for easy access to the race site. Margarette, the owner, is very welcoming and included thoughtful touches like fruit and bagels on race morning, bottled water and coffee.
Margarette is a special kind of a host, mostly because she's a special kind of a person. The room we rented was in her home, and we shared the house with her. She went out of her way to have some things in the house to make us feel at home, and she even made us dinner one night. It was 3 of us staying, including my 7 year old son, and she even got an inflatable mattress and made room in a second room for him to sleep. More than anything, this place was special because it felt like home. Really, I felt like I was staying with a relative. She treated us like family and I left feeling like we were. If you are looking specifically for Ironman Maryland, the house is 2.4 miles from transition and only .5 mile from the school where they ran shuttles from. If you have a support crew, the house is easily accessible by car during the race. Margarette also had room in the garage for bikes, although I didn't need it. The house is in a quiet neighborhood away from the busy streets near the race, which was nice. Still on the topic of Ironman, you know how important getting good rest before the race is, and I think I slept better for this one than any other; that is all because of the comfort I got just being there.
