Description

Outside you’ll find a charming pergola, spacious yard, games, and bikes, while the bay is right across the street and the beach is nearby. Within 5 miles, book a fishing charter at Capt. Bob’s Marina, swim along the Assateague Island National Seashore, or watch the wild ponies gallop through Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge.

  • Great Location, Big House But Needs Attention

    3/5

    I wrote a longer review on this previously but it does not look to be posting, so will keep this one shorter. Overall, the house has a ton of potential but really needs a maintenance and cleaning visit. Pros - Great location. Huge house for a big family, nice back yard. The guest house has a bedroom, pull out couch and bathroom which was perfect for an older couple who would have trouble with the stairs. Loved that we could see the bay from the front porch. Cons - It felt like half the stuff in the house was broken. Bikes have flat tires, beach chairs broken, dishwasher leaked, front rocking chairs all loose. There were not enough sheets for all the beds, nor pillows, itchy blankets. We reached out about the sheets and were not brought enough, did not hear back again. A lot of dust in upstairs rooms and in general, many dishes dirty. We are not a picky family and it almost got funny by the end of the trip when we found something else broken. The house is big, which is hard to find on the island, but the owners or management company really needs to inspect the place and make some changes for guest comfort.

    Hi Eric, we want our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we apologize you experienced some issues during your trip. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:

  • Great Stay in a Chincoteague Classic

    5/5

    We really enjoyed our stay in this classic home. It is a 100+ year old house, so the layout and design are of that time. If you understand that, you should enjoy the home. The location and yard are highlights. Great views of the bay from the main house. Water access across the street is nice, (no dock, just a path). The yard is large and fenced in. We ended up not bringing our dog, but the fenced yard would have been perfect. We also enjoyed the gas grill (there's also a charcoal unit if you prefer). The inside was typical for an 1901 Chincoteague home, comfortable for our rather large group. We'd definitely stay again.

  • Great Stay

    4/5

    Overall our stay was great! 20min walk to downtown area, plenary of space for 10 people, and a large backyard to hangout in. When we got there the keypad to the main door didn’t work but there was a key that we were able to use. It said linens were included however none were left for the cottage house bed, but we were able to find blankets to substitute. Overall the place was lovely!

  • Great family get away

    5/5

    We had a wonderful stay celebrating a family birthday. It was perfect for our group of 6 adults and a baby. We ended up not bringing our pup, but the yard would have been perfect. The views of the bay are beautiful. The home is a classic Chincoteague home, so it is 100 years with the quirks that entails. We found the kitchen and grill great for cooking for a bug group. We look forward to staying again.

  • Winter vacation at Chincoteague Charm

    3/5

    The property was charming and spacious but needs proper cleaning and upgrade. The kitchen utensils were dirty and worn out. Heating system did not function properly and we found it very uncomfortable. The guest suite is fully detached from the house and was not cleaned at all. The access to the gust house was really dark and st The back of the house. We ended up not using it. The bathrooms should be upgrades. We still managed to have a good time since it was a nice cozy home with a good backyard space.
