About Jim & Ann O'Connor

We are retired PA educators who grew up in York, PA. We are both graduates of York Catholic High School. Jim did his undergrad at Indiana State University and Ann did hers at York College. Together we have 53 years of teaching experience.

Ann was first introduced to Chincoteague by her father over thirty-five years ago. As many say, it was love at first sight. During our summer vacations there, we would dream about owning a place of our own.

After putting three sons through college, we made the leap and bought Sweet Retreat. We enjoyed every moment we could spend there. It was our happy place.

In the summer of 2016, we sold our permanent residence and became full time Islanders.

Jim & Ann O'Connor purchased this house in 2008

Sweet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This delightful 3-bedroom, 2-bath home is located on the quiet end of Main Street, surrounded by canals, ponds, marsh grasses, and abundant wildlife. The house is well-appointed. Everything you need is already there, except for personal items (sheets, towels, and toiletries). Sip coffee on the front sun deck or the screened back porch. Build a fire in the fire pit and eat at the picnic table, or dine in the kitchen nook or the full dining room. The property has ample parking and is convenient to everything in town. The landlords are fully cooperative and totally nonintrusive. We couldn't have picked a better vacation home, and we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. Jim & Sue

Nice Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very nice cottage , very clean and well supplied. I am not a big fan of wicker chairs but that would not keep me from renting again.

An Incredible Week on the Island

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time staying at this cottage, all I got to say I had an incredible week. I got to enjoy the back yard in the evenings. The owners really care about their guest and communications is awesome. I visit Chincoteague Island 2 times per year and love staying at this cottage. Everything you need is included except for sheets and towels, but I understand for a small fee that can be included as well.

Really cute place

This is a really cute house with an enclosed outside area out back and a sunroom in the front. It was very clean and well stocked with supplies. We loved that it was dog friendly!!

Comfortable and home like.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped in the door until the moment we left, we felt so at home. Bedrooms and baths are so nice. Love both the front and back porch. Can’t wait to come back again. The dog loved it too!
