About Jack Burbage

John H. 'Jack' Burbage, Jr., has been a member of the board of trustees for Atlantic General Hospital for 10 years. He served as co-chair of the Atlantic General Campaign for the Future, which included the Regional Cancer Care Center. The center was named in his honor, for his philanthropic and leadership contribution.

Burbage, principal of Blue Water Development, a West Ocean City-based real estate development company responsible for significant economic growth on the Eastern Shore, looks forward to his company’s continued success.

Since its beginning, with Burbage at the helm, Blue Water Development has built a reputation for quality, reliability and trustworthiness. Because of those attributes, it grew at an incredible pace in only a few years. Burbage started out working at The Style Guide clothing store in Berlin, his hometown. Under his leadership, the business grew into a chain of stores in Maryland and Delaware.

Along the way, he acquired real estate.

After purchasing property in Delaware, Burbage bought Mystic Harbour in West Ocean City in 1991. It was his first major acquisition in Maryland. Although the property, with its 180 houses, had a failing septic plant, he focused on the future, realizing its potential for an improved wastewater system and increased development to serve the needs of a burgeoning population in the area.

“It just grew,” Burbage said. “The real estate just grew. And then we started doing subdivisions because we had the water and the sewer to do it with.”

With his sons, John III and Todd, Burbage developed three subdivisions, Deer Point, Ocean Reef and Whispering Woods, in addition to two commercial properties, Decatur Business Center and Seaside Village, all in West Ocean City.

After purchasing Castaways Campground, also in West Ocean City, they focused on the hospitality industry. Now, Blue Water Development Corporation owns five upscale campgrounds, Chesapeake Bay and Chincoteague Island KOA in Virginia, The Resort at Massey’s Landing in Delaware, Flat Rock Bridge Family Camping in Maine and, Hampton Inn Lodge in North Carolina. They also own six hotels, Bethany Beach Ocean Suites & Holiday Inn Express in Delaware, The Commander Hotel, Atlantic OceanFront Inn and Aloft Hotel in Ocean City, Md. and, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Chincoteague in Virginia. This expanding portfolio also includes three recreational venues: Blue Water Golf, Maui Jack’s Waterpark in Chincoteague, VA. and, Sea Rocket Adventures in Ocean City, Maryland.

As the company grows, Burbage remains an active partner, but he is gradually retiring from the day-to-day obligations and “passing the baton” to Todd. With his son running the business, Burbage predicts Blue Water Development will become the fastest growing company on Delmarva.

He has been serving on the board of directors of Berlin-based Taylor Bank and also serves on the board of directors of Diakonia, a crisis shelter facility in West Ocean City.
