My tween daughter and I had the most wonderful weekend at the Island Manor on Chicoteague Island in VA. The service was excellent, the facilities superb, and food was wonderful!
Before coming, I discussed my interests with the Innkeeper (Karen Pettigrew) for my daughter and I. Her suggestions for restaurants, site seeing (beaches, creameries, etc.) and boat tours were just perfect!
The home and rooms were lovely and the Inn Keeper (Karen) was most gracious and helpful prior to and during our stay. Our room (Juliette) was neat, spacious, quaint and very comfortable. We had a private bathroom outside of the room which felt very much like being at home. Robes were also provided along with bottled water.
The breakfast was wonderful and very satisfying consisting of several dishes. They were also able to accommodate my food allergies (cheese and cream). During the day/evening there ample tasty snacks and drinks provided along with refrigerator space for our leftover meals from dining out.
The inn is just big enough in terms of bedrooms, sitting rooms and game areas. My daughter challenged me to a game of chess (and won). The diversity of guests for that weekend was also nice ranging from a medium group of ladies to several couples ranging in age. There is also a lovely outdoor patio with the most elegant flowers, seating facilities and outdoor murals on the wall. Parking is plentiful. Finally, beach outings were especially nice because they provide umbrellas, chairs, and towels if needed.
It was a great experience and well worth revisiting. There many other things we wanted to do but just ran out of time. Now, my daughter wants this to be an annual getaway and I would have to agree!
