“Great Family Vacation”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

The Dove Winds is the perfect place to stay for families. It's not really a hotel, but mini- townshouses. Each have 2 bedrooms and two baths, a living room, and full kitchen. This gives you so much more privacy and flexibility than hotel rooms. The indoor pool and hot tub are fabulous and it's super close to the seashore. The owner's are the nicest people and will do anything for you. It is incredibly clean and has barbeques, bike racks picnic tables for you to use. We go back every year. Some fun shops and eating places have opened across the street making it even more convenient.

Room Tip: All the mini townhouses are the same!

My family have been visiting Chincoteague for 14 years, I have for over 30. I have stayed at other accomondations on the island, but Dovewinds has exceeded my hospitality expectations. Their rooms are always clean, kitchens are always usable with working appliances and utencils, cutlery, and dinner service (plates). maintenence is always on site, the pool and hottub are clean and working. The atmostphere is cheery and kid friendly. We enjoy staying there, and they have been able to accomondate reasonable needs with ample call ahead time.
They are a blessing to their guests.
Pgh family
ps see you (again) in two weeks!

we were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and comfort of the three bedroom cabin at this property. It was very roomy and had everything we needed for the kids ages, 6,9 and 8 months. The pool was clean and open until nine in the evenings during the off season. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner who was very nice. He wanted to know how we liked the place and told us to come again! Not like some of these property owners who care only about getting you in and out. We will definately go back! I highly recommend Dove Winds!!!

We have stayed at Dove Winds for 5 years now. Our granddaughter loves it! After spending several hours at the beach, she goes to the indoor pool and swims to her hearts' content. We would not stay anywhere else! Plenty of room for a family of four. I love the kitchen and the fact that we can cook some of our meals. The units have always been very clean and everything functional. The owners are very helpful with information re: dining, sights, etc.

Room Tip: We are in a townhouse and have never had any problems.

Our family of four has been visiting Chincoteague (often several times a year since 1999) and we have stayed at least nine different establishments ranging from motels to private cottages. After all of these visits Dove Winds is our first choice for places to stay on island. It is located very close to the beach on Assateague, clean and affordable. Dove winds is family owned and the Daiseys are great hosts, who will go out of their way to help you. The kitchens in the mini-town homes give vacationers the option of not having to dine out. In our view Dove Winds is the best place for a family to stay on the island.

Room Tip: We like the mini-town houses.

My husband and I have family on the island and have stayed in many of the hotels during our visits the past 10 years. None compare to Dove Winds. This past summer was our first time staying at Dove Winds and I'm so thankful we found it. The minute we walked in the room we knew we found the perfect place for us. The entire unit was so clean! We have a family of five, including a baby who was under 1 the first time we stayed and had just turned one the second time we stayed (we stayed over Thanksgiving for our second time). The kitchen is wonderful - stocked with pots/pans/silverware/cooking utensils, dish soap/plates/cups etc. The two bedrooms are great, along with having two stories if you had children that like to get up early :-). They can go downstairs and watch tv while you sleep in a little! The pool is very clean and my children love the changing lights under the water. The location is great, the owners are wonderful - I have no complaints at all! We will be staying at Dove Winds for the rest of our vacations to Chincoteague!!

I have stayed there almost every year with my family, and love it. We stayed there 2 years ago and forgot to bring a bed rail for my son, they did not have one, but got one for us to use for free. It has everything you need in the kitchen. It is also in a great location, very close to Assategue island ( sorry if this is spelled wrong).
