Overlooking Assateague Island and scenic Sinepuxent Bay, Rackliffe House was constructed in the 1740s by Captain Charles Rackliffe, the merchant-planter grandson of one of the earliest and wealthiest English immigrants to Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The large two-story, three-bay manor house features Flemish bond brickwork with random glazed headers, a steeply pitched gabled roof with kicked eaves, and large windows. Captain Rackliffe intended the house to be seen from across the water. He built it on an elevated site with terraces sculpted out of sandy soils, providing expansive views of the water and island.

 

In its time, Rackliffe House has witnessed marauding Spanish galleons, Barbary pirate ships, and English men-of-war. The house has stood through the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Civil War. Today, thanks to the restoration efforts of the Rackliffe House Trust and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, historic Rackliffe House stands ready to host your memorable event on its three verdant acres of sprawling lawn bordered by lush, green forest and the Sinepuxent Bay.

 

The grounds at Rackliffe House can host a large outdoor wedding and reception or a smaller event. It is located just minutes away from the resort of Ocean City and historic Berlin, Maryland, at the end of a picturesque gravel lane just 1/2-mile from the Visitor Center at Assateague Island. It will transport you and your guests back to the elegance of the 18th century.
