We went to Chincoteague Va this year, rented a beautiful house, and missed IBML every day. We missed the location of the beach, the staff, and just the "at the beach" feel. We missed the fishing end (which was basically shut down due to bird reproduction) and the locals were extremely rude, which was so unlike the friendly seaside park residents. We missed being able to walk a few yards left into the state park and find our own quiet piece of heaven away from people when we wanted a little quiet to ourselves. We missed the ability to drive to the boardwalk (if the quiet got to be too much) but most of all, we missed the convenience of being able to wake up at the crack of dawn and grab a cup of coffee, throw on a hoodie and just walk out on the beach to catch the sunrise stumbling over your 2 feet because your not awake yet. No loading up the car, driving 10 mins...its all right there. IBML is a little dated, but for us true beachgoers that are on the beach from before sun up to past sun down...we basically only use the rooms to shower and sleep (and occasionally to eat) so old tiles dont make a difference. Never ever will i go anywhere else. We love this place so much, we came back from Chincoteague and booked another vacation here in early fall.
