Spring 2012 Special

November 30, 2011 by islandmanor

Wild Horses

Feel as good as the wild ponies of Assateague Island.

We’re getting ready for a couple of quiet winter months here at our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast. Guests are here through December 4, but the inn will be closed for the winter season between December 5, 2011 and February 9, 2012. That said, we’re already looking ahead to next spring.

To celebrate our spring re-opening, we’re offering a Spring 2012 Special at our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast. Guests may stay three nights for the price of two, or four nights for the price of three, or five nights for the cost of four.

Spring is one of our favorite times on Chincoteague and Assateague Islands. Birds – always abundant – flock to the islands and cheerfully wake us with their calls. Brisk days are tempered by mild days, and the air smells salty and green and good. It feels great to be outdoors, and great to curl up by the fire with a cup of tea, a glass of wine, or a good book.

The islands are still quiet in the spring. Shops are open, but summer beach-goers haven’t yet arrived. Beaches stretch out before us, inviting us to explore areas we’ve neglected for a while. The Piping Plover Nesting Area, on the hook of Assateague Island, is open to the public until March 15;  it’s a long walk around Toms Cove to the tip of the hook, so we always bring plenty of snacks. We also love to explore the islands by bike in February and March, for there is little traffic. Bikes are available for use by guests of our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast, and we’ll happily recommend good bike routes.

Like us, the famous wild ponies of Assateague Island live here year-round. Wildlife viewing boat tours are the best way to see the ponies up close, and our concierge service will make the necessary arrangements. Folks who would rather keep both feet on land may well see the ponies while exploring the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge by bike or on foot.

After spending a few hours in the fresh air, a cup of warm, aromatic tea feels just right. Miss Molly’s, our sister inn, offers a full English tea every afternoon. To sink the teeth into a rich scone smothered in jam and cream is to taste heaven. Afternoon tea is particularly good on blustery days, but be careful – they’re deliciously addictive.

It’s not too early to look ahead to spring. In fact, winter can be much more enjoyable when you know you have a good vacation planned at our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast.

 

 

Leave the Cooking to Us

November 9, 2011 by islandmanor

Historic Kitchen

Get out of your kitchen. Let us cook for you this Thanksgiving.

This Thanksgiving, relax on Chincoteague Island. Spend your time walking along deserted beaches, biking around the island, and lazing about at our Chincoteague Bed and Breakfast. Leave the cooking to us.

Bring the people you love. Share Thanksgiving with good friends and family, just as you would were you at home. Yet instead of burdening one of you with the stress of hosting, allow us to play the host. Leave the cooking to us.

Our Chincoteague Bed and Breakfasts are offering a Thanksgiving Special this year that includes three nights lodging in one of our Virginia inns, chocolate covered strawberries, bottomless bowls of snacks, and Thanksgiving Dinner for two (complete with a bottle of wine). The holiday feast will be served at the Island Manor House; guests of Miss Molly’s Inn are invited to cross the street for Thanksgiving dinner.

You don’t even need to spend time planning recreational activities. Allow our concierge service to plan them for you. We want you to relax. Really.

Thanksgiving is one of those delightful holidays that releases most people from work. Many businesses close early on Wednesday and stay closed on Friday. Christmas doesn’t even get that many days! This means Thanksgiving is an ideal time to travel.

We invite people to come down from Washington D.C., Baltimore, and Annapolis. Come up from Norfolk and Virginia Beach. Come to Chincoteague Island to visit with friends and family who live here or to escape from friends or family who don’t live here. You can even come to our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast with friends and family. Since we operate two inns, we should have room for everyone.

Thanksgiving Package at the Island Manor House – $695.00:

  • 3 nights accommodation
  • gourmet breakfast each morning
  • homemade snacks and nibbles available 24 hours a day
  • concierge service
  • bicycles to ride around the island
  • a dozen chocolate covered strawberries in your room on arrival
  • traditional Thanksgiving buffet dinner and bottle of wine for two, 4pm.

Call 1.800.852.1505 for more information or to book your room. Or visit the reservation page of our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast.

 

 

Make This Thanksgiving Special

October 22, 2011 by islandmanor

Beach at Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge (VA)

Spend your Thanksgiving walking on the beach, not working in the kitchen.

The end of October is the time to make Thanksgiving plans. Do you feel up for hosting (and all the cleaning and cooking that it entails)? Have you been invited to share Thanksgiving with friends or family? Are you up for air travel and standing in endless lines?

Wouldn’t you rather just sneak off to our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast for Thanksgiving this year?

We’re offering a three night Thanksgiving Package that includes chocolate covered strawberries, gourmet breakfasts, bottomless bowls of snacks, and a traditional Thanksgiving buffet dinner for two (with a bottle of wine). Our concierge service will help you occupy your days with activities on Chincoteague and Assateague Islands, or we’ll leave you to lounge and explore as you will.

Sounds relaxing, doesn’t it?

If Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without your dearest friends or family, then bring them, too. 1848 Island Manor House Chincoteague Bed and Breakfast has eight rooms, and across the street Miss Molly’s Inn has seven rooms. You can spend Thanksgiving with the people you love, enjoying their company all the more because none of you will have to worry about cooking or cleaning. Instead, explore the beautiful surroundings together.

Our Chincoteague Bed and Breakfasts – both the 1848 Island Manor House and Miss Molly’s – are located on Main Street in the heart of Chincoteague village. Shops, restaurants, and art galleries are a short walk from from the front door. Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge on Assateague Island is just a few miles from the inns – easily accessible by bike or car.

Make this Thanksgiving special. Spend it at our Chincoteage Island Bed and Breakfast.

Thanksgiving Package at the Island Manor – $695.00 Inclusive:

  • 3 nights accommodation
  • gourmet breakfast each morning
  • homemade snacks and nibbles available 24 hrs a day
  • concierge service
  • bicycles to ride around the island
  • a Dozen chocolate covered strawberries in your room on arrival
  • traditional Thanksgiving buffet dinner and bottle of wine for two at 4 pm

Spend Thanksgiving on Chincoteague Island

September 24, 2011 by islandmanor

The holidays are a wonderful time. Thanksgiving is a feast shared with family and friends. Christmas is a celebration of life and love – a time to exult in the joy of giving. New Year’s is a time to reflect on the past, plan for the future, and rejoice in the present.

Thanksgiving Spread

Let us cook your Thanksgiving feast.

In truth, the holidays can also be a stressful time, especially for folks who enjoy hosting them. Feasts require days of planning and food preparation. Entertaining requires a clean and tidy home. Gifts must be either purchased or made. By the time Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s have passed, many people feel the need for a vacation.

This year, consider incorporating a vacation into your holiday plans. Break up the monotony of always hosting, or always schlepping from one relative’s house to the next. This year, spend Thanksgiving on beautiful Chincoteague Island, at the Island Manor House, our Chincoteague Bed and Breakfast.

Spend your time walking on the sparkling sands of Assateague Island, watching the wild ponies frolic, and witnessing the miraculous migration of beautiful Snow Geese. Go for an invigorating bike ride around the island. Warm yourself by the fire, curled up with a good book and a glass of wine or cup of coffee.

Let us do the work for you. We’ll cook, we’ll clean. You’ll relax, eat, drink, and be merry.
