Motels and Hotels: There are a couple of motels listed on the Brandywine Service Businesses page. There are additional hotels and motels south on Rt. 301 in Waldorf and north on Rt. 5. My personal experience is that affordability and quality are linked. In general, the more affordable places are closest and the higher quality ones are further away. You can find the hotels and motels by distance by going to Switchboard.com and putting in the address of the place in Brandywine where you will be visiting or you can use “Webb’s Grocer” address which is in “downtown Brandywine” by putting it in the “Business Name” with “Brandywine, MD” click “search” and then click the link “What’s Nearby” and then “Hotels.” Those with paid ads are listed first and then under that are a list according to distance.
Camping: There is just one public camping facility in the area. It is in a state park with minimal accomodations for those who really like to “rough it.” There is also a facility rented by the Girl Scouts for camping, Aquasco Farm. There are also two cabins for large groups (primarily reserved for youth groups and educational programs) at the Patuxent River 4-H Center
Renting: According to the Census Statistics, there are a below average number of rental units here in comparison with the national average. Many renters do not advertise, they go by word-of-mouth. You may find Realtors listed on the Brandywine Service Businesses page. To find realtors who specialize in rentals, you can also go to Switchboard.com and put “realestate” in the “Business Category” section, along with “Brandywine, MD” clicking “search” and then scrolling down the list to “Real Estate-Rental Service” and/or “Rental Agencies”. Classified ads are another place to look for rental homes or rooms. The Washington Post is the most comprehensive resource among local newspapers. The Brandywine Bulletin Board may also contain free classified ads. Senior housing is also available at St. Phillips House, see the Brandywine Community Services page.
Real Estate: See the Renting FAQ for Real Estate and other information about locating real estate in the area. To learn about property values, taxes, and current property owners, see the Maryland State Real Property Search and the State Department of Assessments and Taxation. New to the area?
