Our visit to Chincoteague was like traveling back to the 1970's - everything was quaint and fun, from the old-fashioned firmane's carnival to homemade icecream to the the cozy cottage. Holiday Cottages provides a warm and friendly welcome. Everything in the cottage is there for preparing simple meals. We made tacos one night and grilled hotdogs the next night. The furnishings are old but very comfortable and most importantly, everything was clean, clean, clean, from top to bottom. The sheets on the bed were soft, and did I mention everything was perfectly clean? I came armed for bear against the mosquitos but didn't experience any except on the walk to the lighthouse at 8 a.m., where I was out-numbered by about 100,000. We waited outside the icecream place at 9 p.m. for quite a while and no mosquitos, played bingo under the tent at the carnival - no mosquitos, went to the beach - no mosquitos. We had a lot of fun and would go again.
