Our Team

We, Lance and Elaine Stitcher, founded Seaside Vacations with the belief that there is a better way to vacation in Chincoteague Island, Virginia and Ocean City, Maryland. As a working family with two teenage boys and two beach Boxers, we understand how difficult it can be to get away and how precious that time together is. Our personal service, attention to detail, and providing a good product consistently are the building blocks of our great vacation relationships, whether they be with partners, guests or owners. We want to make this vacation stress free for you - just sit back and enjoy the time with family and friends.

Lance has been on the shore since 1978, and has worked on the ESVA since 1998. Growing up in Salisbury, the beaches of Ocean City and Assateague, and the waters of Chincoteague Island were a part of daily life for much of the year. After attending Salisbury University, Lance has made a career of nearly thirty years in the Hospitality and Property Management industry.

Elaine is a native Delawarean who grew up vacationing on the Eastern Shore and loved it so much decided to call it home. A graduate of the University of Delaware, Elaine possesses extensive experience and knowledge in Marketing and Customer Service, as well as a keen attention to detail that benefits both our partners, owners, and guests.

Together, we combine our love of the beach, the ocean and time with family to bring you a fantastically easy beach vacation. After our guests' needs are met, you’ll likely find us with our family boating, fishing and clamming on the local waters, or enjoying the occasional round of golf. We live here, We work here, We play here - Let us show you all the Eastern Shore has to offer!

Most recently we were voted "Vacation Rental Management Company of the Year in 2023" by VRMA. We are so excited and honored by this recognition. You can read more about this on the VRMA Blog by clicking here.
