The best part was the "owner" who gave us lots of ideas about the area and where to enjoy dinner. Seems like he enjoys talking with guests. The room was perfectly clean and stocked with the basics. No breakfast in November. And we slept perfectly because it was quiet!

Love this place!! Prices are reasonable, rooms are clean, very quiet and love the staff!! This is my new spot to stay on Chincoteague. Across the street is a 700+ foot dock that offers the best in sunsets! There is a pool on the grounds that is very relaxing.

My wife and I went to Chincoteague Island for a weeks vacation and found the Birchwood Inn quite at random. The price was great, rooms are good size and clean, maid service was very good! But the highlight of our week, besides shooting images of dolphins, egrets, ponies, and more, was the friendship that we developed with the owners, Mike... More

A nice quiet place on the island, yet within walking distance to all the action, this is a great spot to book your vacation. The main streets of Chincoteague are promoted to satisfy the little girls that flock to the pony theme. This is cute, but, their is a far better place to truly enjoy the island pleasures that are...

Owners make your stay enjoyable. Although next door to the fairgrounds, it's not within walking distance of shops; however, a trolley runs after 5pm (would be much more convenient if it ran all day!). Pool on site. Individual porch sitting. Older building, but clean (that's the important part). Lots to see and do in a small town, made famous by... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Birchwood Inn on July 10th and 11th 2015 and couldn't have been any happier. The owners were so very nice and helpful. We couldn't have had any nicer people. The rooms were clean and affordable. We will definitely be going back soon.

As a child,my family stayed at this motel many times. I remember the beautiful roses and nice rooms. Later on, my husband and I stayed there and always enjoyed it. Recently we went back and were deeply disappointed. We arrived after a long drive and I was eager to take photos of the beautiful sunset on the bay. The owner... More

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

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
