Expands company’s presence on Maryland’s Eastern Shore
Long & Foster Vacation Rentals, one of the largest vacation and resort rental companies in the country, has acquired Annapolis Accommodations, a vacation and home rental firm based in Annapolis, Maryland. The partnership enables Long & Foster to grow its presence in the popular Eastern Shore market and align with one of the Annapolis area’s leading vacation rental firms. Going forward, Long & Foster Vacation Rentals will take over management of the more than 200 properties previously overseen by Annapolis Accommodations.
“Annapolis, with its rich history and many attractions, is one of our more popular vacation destinations, and we’re thrilled to expand our business in the Maryland state capital,” said Joe Amatangelo, president of Long & Foster Vacation Rentals and Property Management. “Like Long & Foster, Annapolis Accommodations is committed to providing the best possible accommodations for their renters, and together, we’ll even better serve travelers to the Annapolis area.”
Founded by Lu Ramsay Cotta, Annapolis Accommodations has been in business since 1985, and they provide a variety of housing, including temporary furnished rentals, corporate rentals and vacation rentals. Their team has a wealth of local knowledge plus carefully tuned processes for matching renters to the most appropriate properties.
“I’ve had a wonderful time building this business and have had the very good fortune to work with so many wonderful owners, guests, vendors and employees over the years. The team at Long & Foster has both the experience to carry on the torch and the infrastructure to enhance services for both our owners and guests,” said Ramsay Cotta. “It humbles me to have had Long & Foster recognize the value of Annapolis Accommodations and be ready to continue the good service under their brand.”
Ramsay Cotta will join the team at Long & Foster Real Estate, also part of the Long & Foster Companies, as an associate broker. Annapolis Accommodations will continue to operate out of its current location at 41 Maryland Avenue in Annapolis, now as part of Long & Foster Vacation Rentals. In addition, Long & Foster Vacation Rentals will move its current Annapolis area rental operations, which is located at 320 Sixth Street in Annapolis, to this new facility.
