Five Great Reasons to live in Piney Orchard-Odenton, MD


The community of Piney Orchard was developed over old Odenton, MD farmland back in the early 1990’s. Since then, the Piney Orchard community has grown and become one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Maryland. Even though I have lived here less than a year it has been such a great place for my family (my husband, three boys ages 7, 4, 1 and two pups).


Here are five reasons to live in Piney Orchard:


Diverse Housing Choices


There are traditional apartments for rent, condos, townhomes, and detached single family homes.


Community Amenities


The clubhouse and recreation center includes a wonderful workout gym and indoor swimming pool and spa. It has 3 different outdoor swimming pools, and the 5 miles of hiking and biking trails that run through Piney Orchard.


The Gambrills Odenton Recreation Council (GORC) is a five minute walk from my house. This local youth sports organization. uses the football, soccer, and baseball fields located in Piney Orchard for practices and games.




Piney Orchard is nestled near Interstate 95, 97, Maryland Route 32, and the Baltimore Washington Parkway.  By car, you can be in Washington DC in about 35 minutes, about 25 minutes to Baltimore and even less time to Annapolis.  Rather not drive? The MARC train has a stop in Odenton.  It’s less than 20 minutes from BWI airport.


Shopping is convenient as well.  The nearby Waugh Chapel Center has everything from grocery stores, a Target, restaurants, movie theaters and many more shops.


Highly Rated Public Elementary Schools


Depending on the location of the home, either Piney Orchard Elementary, Waugh Chapel Elementary or Piney Orchard Elementary will be the public school assigned. They are all very highly rated.


Great People


This really is a neighborhood for everyone.  Some of the most friendly neighbors I have ever had. That’s coming from someone who has moved four times in the last four years. Everyone is willing to help everyone.


Thank you for reading. I hope this brief profile has helped you gain some insight into this community. If a move to Maryland is in your future I would recommend you consider the community of Piney Orchard.  It’s a great place to call home!
