A very relaxing weekend with the wife. She requested accommodations with a single bedroom (we had cottage 8). The view was great looking out over the water. We were 30 yards across the parking lot from the pier where we caught crabs and left on our kayak trip. The place was VERY small, but nice and clean. The kitchen was suitable for my wife to cook some great meals for us from the crabs we caught (about 40 keepers for two days worth). On our kayak trip we were fortunate to see ponies. Apparently, according to our guide, after the pony race in late July they are a bit spooked and seeing them is sometimes difficult. The man working there was very helpful and friendly. They kept Bob Marley's Legend's CD on repeat the whole weekend, which was more comical than annoying. There are only two things I would say are not good, which lends to the "average" rating. First, the view is nice, not caribbean AWESOME by any means and it is what is; you get what you pay for. Second, the mosquitos were FEROCIOUS!!! This made it difficult in the evening to really lounge around out by the pier and enjoy the best thing about this place, the cozy dock with its view and fishing opportunities. Also, do NOT go to Chincoteague expecting there to be a lot of things to do. Within two full days my wife and I had basically exhausted the town's options.
