This B&B is in a beautiful location overlooking the water and marsh with Assateague Island in the distance. It's also in a very quiet area away from traffic and crowds. An outstanding place for kayaking, very calm waters, and also for easy hiking on Assateague.
The Inn is very nice, small, quiet, and clean. The staff were all friendly, and Kitty cooks a great breakfast. There was a small pool and a hot tub and even a dock where you can sit and enjoy the view or even catch some crabs.
The village of Chincoteague is charming. Not too big, but still plenty of shops, restaurants, museums, boat tours, mini golf etc.
We stayed in the 'Captain's Quarters' at the Inn. It is the highest, on the third floor, and has the best view, and a little deck to enjoy it from. Oh, it also has a very nice feature, a private tower with two chairs, table and binoculars to fully appreciate the awesome view. The room was nicely decorated although a little small. Probably not suited to anyone who is very tall as the ceiling is sloped and very low in areas.
My only complaint was that the fireplace in our room was turned off for the season. We stayed in mid September and as luck would have it, it was quite cool and very rainy and windy while we were there. The fireplace would have been a very cozy and inviting touch. I would suggest that it be advertised as "seasonal only" so customers will not be disappointed in future.
