This was our first visit to Chincoteague Island. We stopped to see if they had a room, after reading reviews on here, and were happy to get one. Both Mike and his wife were very helpful when I asked about various activities on the islands. The room was perfect for sleeping and showering. It is an older motel, but nothing... More

Hi Kim, Thanks for choosing us for your first trip to the island! And thanks for the compliment on the roses! We have to share credit for those with Mr. Birch, the original owner and founder of the Birchwood, as he planted them and helped cultivate them. We look forward to your next stay and to your eventual Pony Penning... More

We had our first visit to the island June 2015. I chose the Birchwood because of the fishing dock. It was a great, quiet place to sit and read until the egrets and ducks disturbed me. What a great way to be disturbed! The room was very clean. Mike and Kim were like friends. They were very helpful and answered... More

This will be our 20th yr visiting Chincoteague during pony penning week. 18 of these visits we stayed at the Birchwood. We tried 2 different motels just for a change but always came back to Birchwood. Rick and Jeannie met any needs we had with a smile. This will be the first to meet Mike and Kimberly but have no...

We spent Memorial Day week-end at this motel. What a wonderful time!!! Mike and Kim were the best. We were having trouble with the internet and Mike did all he could to help us. He even let my husband come to the office and connect. The room was clean and the cleaning girls were the friendliest. The beds were comfortable... More

We stayed in room 11 over Memorial weekend. We noticed that the staff was incredibly friendly to us and every other guest. The beds were comfortable and seemed to have pillow tops. My only complaint would be that the room was supposed to have 2 queen beds but it was really 1 queen and 1 double - but the couple... More

This was probably our 9th or 10th visit to the Birchwood. We love the place! The owners are the same, but they have a new couple managing the property for 2015. Kimberly and Mike did an outstanding job! They made us feel at home, just like Rick and Jeannie did. We hated to leave but it was an absolutely perfect... More

I read all the positive reviews on here and was expecting a nice motel. I couldn't have been more wrong or more disappointed. The room was dark, dirty, and smelled badly of mold and whatever spray they tried to use to cover it up. I was afraid to walk around without shoes or put anything down on the floor. The... More

Our two night stay was very pleasant & comfortable. We chose the Birchwood as first timers to Chincoteague because we wanted a real feel for the island as opposed to a usual chain hotel. We had everything we could have in a chain with the added bonus of the lovely owners who were very helpful & accommodating. We also paid... More

But I still give the Birchwood 5 stars, because without costing a fortune, you get a clean and comfortable room, good beds and pillows for a great night's sleep. We had a small refrigerator/freezer in the room, microwave, coffee maker,stove, essentially a kitchenette. We travel after the "season", so it is quiet. Rick, the owner, is a wealth of information...
