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

Even better than expected

  • 5 of 5

My sister found this place for us to take our Mom for her birthday. It looked very nice online. Jim and Ann were quick with responses and made the whole process very easy. When we arrived, we were all pleasantly surprised. The place was even better than we expected. My Mom loved it too. It was the perfect set up for our family. The screened in porch was ideal for being outside and not being eaten alive by the mosquitoes. They had everything that we needed for our stay. The hose out front allowed us to wash the sand and salt off of all our stuff after the beach. We were even able to get out in the backyard a little when the mosquitoes were not too bad. If you are coming down and have not been here before, make sure you have plenty of bug repellent and some long sleeve clothes. We would highly recommend this place and will return the next time we go to Chincoteague.

Cute, relaxing, peaceful house

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house! Owners are very nice and helpful. We arrived after a 10-hour drive and immediately fell in love with the house. Mornings in the sunroom and screened-in back porch. Watching the birds. Quick drive to the beach. We give this house six thumbs up!

Great week in Chincoteague!

  • 5 of 5

We found this home to be cozy, clean, comfortable and very quiet. The breakfast nook and the screened in porch were my favorites. A great way to start the day with a cup of coffee. This is a delightful home and one that I would recommend. Just far enough from the center of town to allow you some peace and quiet. We definitely hope to return and appreciate the fact that this family shares their home with others.

Charming

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at Sweet Retreat. Location is perfect for walking into town. Cottage is nicely decorated and very well stocked. Owners very generously stock the kitchen and the laundry with all you could possibly need. Also, there are books to read and games to play. Nice sitting on the front or back porches. Looking forward to staying again soon!! Thank you.
