Our family of four booked two nights very last minute and Barbara and David couldn't have been more accommodating. Now, if only the weather would have been cooperative, but we still had a great time overall, despite the rain. We usually vacation at the beach in Lewes, but wanted to try something different and we ended up falling in love w/ the small-town feel of Chincoteague. You can ride your bikes/walk everywhere - it's the laid-back beach town we were searching for. We scheduled afternoon tea and enjoyed that immensely - even our little ones wanted to know if we could have afternoon tea again the next day. The breakfasts were outstanding and we skipped lunch both days because we were so full from our wonderful breakfast. The housekeeper (Bea) was incredibly sweet and took care of everything, telling us not to worry about anything. They provided bikes, beach towels and everything else you would need for a day at the beach. Barbara made kayaking arrangements for us at Snug Harbor. The beds were very comfortable, the room and bath was very clean and the linens were luxurious. It's amazing how close you are to the shopping and restaurants and how incredibly quiet the rooms are - we slept so good. We enjoyed sitting w/ others at breakfast and meeting new people. We actually stayed around to chat w/ the other families staying at the inn after our breakfast was over and Barbara joined us. The day we left, Barbara and David saw us off - just like your parents waiving you off from the front door. I much prefer a B&B over a hotel - the atmosphere was divine and so welcoming and comfortable. We will be back again - thanks for a fabulous stay at your charming inn!
P.S. Everyone says about the terrible mosquitos @ Chincoteague - didn't get bit once until we headed to the 2nd leg of our journey in Baltimore - got bit there several times.
