Enjoy the wildlife of Assateague and Chincoteague Islands. Just don't get too close.

The Assateague Island National Seashore is home to 37 miles of beach. 37 miles. It takes time to experience all that nature and beauty–days, even weeks. We suggest staying making yourself at home in one of our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfasts.

Assateague Island is wild. Chincoteague Island is quiet. There’s a difference. The historic town of Chincoteaugue is not a hotbed of activity, but there are things to do. There are shops, including one very good bookstore, art galleries, and eateries. There are many lovely historic buildings and homes. It’s peaceful here, particularly in our Chincoteague Bed and Breakfasts; you’ll want a good book.

Just across a nearby bridge lay Assateauge Island National Seashore and its vast expanse of beaches, pine forest, and salt marshes. Animals live here, not people. There are hundreds of wild horses and thousands of birds on Assateague. Off shore, there are sometimes dolphins. It is amazing to think that Assateague Island is so close to Washington D.C. and Baltimore; how can it be so close to such cosmopolitan cities and yet be so wild?

Come to our Chincoteague Bed and Breakfast this spring. Breathe in the fragrant scent of flowers and fresh, salty air. Poke around the shops. Borrow a bike and circumnavigate the island or explore the trails of Assateague. Borrow a beach chair, a frisbee, a bucket and a spade. Build a sand castle. Dig a deep hole. Take a long walk. Look at birds. Relax.

Spring is a wonderful time to visit the islands. The weather is pleasant and there are no crowds. Spend a weekend or linger longer. Ask us about our Spring Special: if you stay at least two nights before the end of April, you’ll receive a 10% discount.
