The large Maryland “T”-style home also offers plenty of space to relax, whether in the three spacious common areas or out on the inviting patio and surrounding gardens.

You can also reach the lighthouse by biking or hiking the trail that goes from Chincoteague to Assateague Island.
As a traditional fishing village in one the the great fishing areas of the Atlantic coast, there’s also great fishing in Chincoteague.

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.
Chincoteague Island is remote, and that is one of its biggest charms. Not only is it an island – it is an island off the Delmarva Peninsula. The closest major cities, Annapolis, Maryland, Wilmington, Delaware, and Washington, D.C. sit at the tip of the peninsula or on the other side of the Chesapeake Bay.
Yet, in spite of its remote location, it doesn’t take all day to reach Chincoteague Island. It’s about three hours from Annapolis, three and a quarter hours from Wilmington, and three and a half hours from D.C. Leave work after lunch on Friday, and you can be at our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast in time for Afternoon Tea.
People routinely come to our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast to escape from hectic schedules and non-stop lives. The island is an ideal place to relax, especially during the spring and fall, before and after the arrival of summer crowds. Bring a good book, or borrow one of ours. When was the last time you read Marguerite Henry’s Misty of Chincoteague, inspired by the wild ponies on neighboring Assateague Island?
There are many opportunities for outdoor recreation on Chincoteague Island and neighboring Assateague Island: kayaking, canoeing, fishing, hiking and biking. Some of the best activities, fortunately, are also some of the most relaxing.
Scenic cruises lead passengers around the perimeter of the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, where the famous Assateague wild ponies live. They are often as curious about people as we are about them, and they sometimes seem to pose for photographs. Picture a wild pony standing on the beach, with the breeze gently lifting his mane.
The Assateague National Seashore is an ideal place for beach strolls. Collect shells (unless they are being used as a home), or bring a blanket and a picnic and let yourself be soothed by the sound of the surf. Change your internal clock to Island Time.
Our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfasts re-open for the season on February 10, 2012. To celebrate spring, we’re offering a Spring Special: stay three nights for the price of two nights, or four nights for the price of three. For more information, please call 800.852.1505.
