Once you’ve settled on a vacation destination, your overnight accommodations should be next on the to-do list. On Chincoteague Island, you will have several options—from standard hotels and rental homes to campgrounds and bed and breakfasts. In the spirit of experiencing the island as a local, we have detailed four of our favorite bed and breakfasts in the area.
1848 Island Manor House—Located in the center of charming Chincoteague, this is the Island’s most historic bed and breakfast. It has had a hand in the island’s history since the early days of the American Civil War. A perfect destination for wedding parties, receptions, and group events, this is a wonderful destination for any vacation.
Garden and Sea Inn— Pet-friendly and romantic, this quaint bed and breakfast is perfect for vacationers wanting to experience the Virginia seashore. Just 11 miles from downtown Chincoteague, visitors can experience the both beauty of the island and nearby New Church. In the mood for optimum relaxation? Each room has a private bath, and most are equipped with whirlpool tubs.
The Watson Guest House—Built in 1898, this building is the most illustrative example of local, Chincoteague Architecture. The Watson family, the home’s original owners, were very wealthy by 19th century standards, and the bed and breakfast has endless surprises for lovers of colonial architecture. This is also the closest guest house to the Island’s ocean beaches.
Miss Molly’s Inn— “Miss Molly” was one of Chincoteague Island’s dearest and best-loved citizens. The daughter of Mr. J.T. Rowley—the “Clam King of the World”—Molly lived in the house until the age of eighty-four. It has since been restored to its original splendor, offering beautiful and comfortable accommodations for those seeking relaxing island life.
