                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1970

                  About the owner: My husband, daughters, grandchildren and I enjoy this house immensely! We started coming here when the girls were little, they are now full grown with children. We live in Garrett Park, Maryland and love to come to Chincoteague to relax and enjoy the quiet island life. A regular day in Chincoteague for us is going for a bike ride around the nature reserve to the beach, swimming and playing in the water, followed by some relaxation on the deck with a glass of white wine and an amazing seafood dinner, We love this house and are really happy to be able to share it now with brand new floors, new paint, and many other upgrades!

                  Why the Owner Chose Chincoteague:
                  Our family has been vacationing in Chincoteague since the early 1970s. We first owned a house in town on Chicken City Road, but when the Maddox family decided to sell Piney Island, we jumped at the chance to build a little house in the Piney woods. With my own children now grown, we have a new tradition of bringing our young grandchildren here to enjoy the magic and beauty of Chincoteague. While much of the beach towns of the eastern shore have changed quite a bit over the last 40 years, so much of what makes Chincoteague unique and special-- the wildlife refuge for bird and pony-watching, the quiet peacefulness, the 'fishermans-town' feel of Chincoteague, remain the same.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our house is located on Piney Island, a15 min walk/5 min. bike ride from the entrance to Assateague National Seashore. It is close to everything (restaurants, the best bbq place on the island, surf shop, bike rentals, family dollar for essentials) and yet Piney Island is remote, quiet peaceful. There are very few parts of Chincoteague that are this relaxing and mellow. The house itself is surrounded by pine trees. At night you'll hear the trees whispering in the night breezes and see the lighthouse flashing from across the channel. For kayaking and boating, the Piney Island community has a boat launch right down the road a short 5 minutes away. The Assateague Channel is also about 500 feet (stones throw) from the house, so though you are not right on the water, you are always surrounded by the fresh salt air and cool breezes.
