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

I arrived on Sunday, October 4th, 2014, and left on Thursday. It's my first time staying here and I was not disappointed. Rick is the nicest person! Extremely helpful and willing to help and/or answer any questions. The room was clean, the towels were soft and the best part is the windows open with screens to let the fresh air... 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...

Comfortable, clean, friendly, family owned motel. Outdoor pool is pristine and solar heated. The owner is a wealth of island information. The room was clean and comfortable with a microwave, mini fridge, coffee pot, and cable tv. Continental breakfast was available, although we did not partake of it. The motel is situated on Main Street with access to a 700... More

We stayed for one night at the Birchwood this week, and would recommend it. It's a traditional motel - basic, but clean and comfortable. The owners and staff take the place up a level - very friendly and welcoming, and nice to chat to. The owner, Rick, even gave us his cellphone number to call if we got lost on... More
