                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: Joanne & John Brooks, two lovers of nature who enjoy the outdoors and the peace & quiet of our vacation cottage. This is truly a get away from the hustle and bustle of the work week where we hope to retire one day in the not too distant future.

                      Why the Owner Chose Chincoteague:
                      Having spent several weekends at a friends house, we searched for our piece of heaven and stumbled upon lot 116. It was quite overgrown but as we walked through the woods, we discovered the beautiful view of the bay and marshes. We were sold on that property and went about planning our cozy cottage. We truly enjoy spending time there throughout the changing seasons. Since we are not there all the time, we decided we should share it with others who will enjoy it as we do.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Visit 'Cozy Shore Cottage' any time of the year. Each season is unique with its own beauty and serenity. The setting is private and relaxing. The rest of the world goes away and you totally escape into nature. The many birds sing all day and you can see the woodpeckers and on occasion an owl. The herons and egrets are beautiful and you can watch them fish for their food from the deck. We cook out on the grill often and also enjoy sitting by the outdoor fire pit or chimnea. Holidays have been especially fun when we spend them at our cottage. Come to Cozy Shore Cottage at Trails End Campground and Resort, you'll have a vacation to remember.
