Looking for a B&B in Chincoteague a few days before departing home left few choices and virtually none in Chincoteague. We selected Garden and Sea Inn in New Church based on the pictures shown and proximity to our destination. At first the 20 minute trip from New Church to Chincoteague and Assateague seemed liked it would be a hindrance. It was not. We planned accordingly and found this B&B to be a hidden gem. Thomas and Dorothee were wonderful hosts and the hotel was very clean, great furnishings, excellent size rooms, and extremely comfortable bed and room. We stayed in the Merlot Room. The room was extremely quiet. The bathroom was huge and very clean. Some rooms had fireplaces but ours did not. It did not matter in September. The morning breakfast was gourmet fare, prepared each day by Dorothee (served by Thomas), was excellent. Overall the ambiance of this B&B was just what my wife and I were looking for. The great weather cannot be ruled out as a factor! One must consider that the distance from New Church to Chincoteage and Assateague is not a trip you want to do more than once a day, so plan accordingly. Everything is very casual, but I can imagine if you had gone swimming at Assateague and then wanted to stay for dinner in Chincoteague you would need to get a shower and change. There were no such facilities on Assateague (that I am aware of) so a trip back to your hotel for that purpose would be needed. However, it you did not go swimming and wanted to dine while there, everything is very casual and you could certainly do so without an extra trip back to New Church. We would certainly stay here again, possibly with friends the next time.
