I have always wanted to visit Chincoteague, since I first read "Misty." I finally got that opportunity when business called me to the DC area, and I couldn't have been more thrilled to stay at the original inn where the Misty book was written. The inn itself is cozy, warm and fun. My room overlooked 'the working bay' that the other reviewer complained about, but I had no problems with what I saw (it's a question of a glass being half full, right?) Blue water made me happy and I delighted in watching the ducks get fed one morning next door. Breakfasts were sumptuous and decadent and yummy, perfect fuel for brisk hikes down Assateague Island (which is nearby and fabulous). I visited offseason (February) and found the islands to be wonderful and easy to explore. Lots to see. As a woman traveling alone, I felt perfectly safe. I could see this Inn being a great spot for, say, a quilting group or a book club to stay for a weekend. I hope to come back some day.
