vacation rental description

If you like a sense of being away when you go away on vacation, our house is ideal.  It is on 1/3 acre on a dead-end lane, just off Little Oyster Bay.  It is surrounded by 100-year old cedars, spruces and pines.  Even on the busiest weekends it is a wonderfully tranquil place, yet is only about five blocks from the road that takes you to Assateague Island.

We offer great offseason rates.  In spring and fall, weekends are just $275 for two nights, $350 for three.  Four-night midweek stays are just $300.   

For anyone who loves nature and wildlife, our house is ideal.  Because of our location -- surrounded by mature trees, a bay and undeveloped land, you can sit on our screened porch and watch and listen to an extraordinary variety of birds.  We're within walking distance of a very nice nature trail.  And we're very close to the entrance to Assateague Island, which is a wildlife preserve.

The house is very comfortable.  It has two bedrooms and a half bath upstairs.  Downstairs it has a living room with a gas-burning cast-iron stove and a family room/dining room, along with a full bath.  A large screened porch with skylights and a ceiling fan is off the family room.  It looks out onto several willow trees.  There is a second enclosed porch off the living room. The kitchen is small but well equipped.  There is an outbuilding that is useful for storing bikes and beach gear, as well as an outdoor shower and a new gas grill.

traveler reviews for this chincoteague island house rental

Retreat is right!

Review submitted: December 30, 2013   Date of arrival: November 27, 2013

If you are looking for an off-the-main-drag experience on Chincoteague Island, VA, The "Chincoteague Retreat" is it! This older house is loaded with charm right down to the oil lamps! Although older (hence the charm), it has a fully modern kitchen and bathrooms with plenty of hot water! Sunlight streams into almost every room, especially upstairs due to the many windows facing every direction. The location is on a quiet back street, but is also within quick and easy driving distance of Main Street as well as all other areas of town. This home was found in an online search, which provided an accurate description and great photos; and the price was RIGHT, hence our decision. The house was clean as a pin when we arrived, and stocked with small but important items like....toilet paper and paper towels! Our favorite restaurant was Bill's on Main Street. Don't miss the pecan pancakes with orange/cranberry butter and Applewood Bacon for breakfast, not to mention the Chincoteague oysters served there for dinner! The homeowner is very friendly and accommodating. It was a pleasure dealing with him. The biggest draw for us was the National Wildlife Refuge. If you are a bird and/or animal lover, watcher, or wildlife photographer, this is definitely the place! Many water birds simply posed for my lens! This house also has a wireless connection that takes only moments to connect. If you are bringing multiple electronics, a surge protector with multiple outlets would be helpful. It was great to return "home" after a day outside, to collapse in the comfort of this private home. Unlike other houses nearby, this house also has a GREAT yard surrounded by trees, shrubs and flowering plants that provide privacy. The locked outbuilding is great for storing beach items, bikes and whatever else you might have with you. This was our first visit to Chincoteague and we did learn that bicycle will be the way we go next trip. Everything is within easy reach via bike. I would definitely recommend the "Chincoteague Retreat" for a quiet, quaint, old-house-but-comfortable experience! Try it!

Chincotague Retreat

Review submitted: September 28, 2013   Date of arrival: September 16, 2013

What a wonderful home away from home. It is cozy, welcoming, clean, and well kept, and our only responsibility is to Enjoy! The lot is spacious, in the heart of Nature, with plenty of privacy. Each room has its own personality - the living room is the media room, the kitchen / dining room is the gathering place. But the side porch was my favorite. It is great for gathering and fun, or for quiet times as well, in any kind of weather or temperature. A big part of the Chincoteague Retreat's charm is its location in a neighborhood on a quiet lane. It lets you feel like a "local" and get a true taste of what it is like to live in this beautiful, quaint, waterfront community. Many thanks to the landlord for the prompt, efficient, and gracious business relationship.

The perfect place

Review submitted: September 23, 2013   Date of arrival: September 16, 2013

What a delightful surprise to find this sweet house on a lovely,
well maintained lot . . . beautiful trees providing delicious
shade. My favorite spot to hang out was the spacious
porch. The picture above gives a glimpse of the screened
porch but not the spacious-ness and beckoning of the
comfy chairs. Hhhhmmmmmmmmmmm so easy to stay put once
settled in!
Everything was neat, clean, and tidy. My friend and I were
constantly amazed at how everything we needed was there!
So, little need to venture out into the quaint town of
Chincoteague (a five minute drive or less; easy walk if
you are used to walking/hiking) or to nearby Assateague
home of the famous wild ponies (a ten-minute drive or easy
bicycle ride).
It was an easy place to be to enjoy quiet relaxation. The
neighborhood was quiet, peaceful, beautiful and the year-round
residents friendly. A variety of birds, crickets, and frogs
serenaded us with their soothing songs which we enjoyed
from the porch.
Coordinating our visit with the owner was easy. Tim was
pleasant and a joy to correspond with.
I can only give the highest rating to the Chincoteague Retreat
and have recommended it to several friends.
I look forward to being there again . . . for a longer stay.
