Just a mile or so from downtown shops and restaurants, an easy flat bike ride to Assateague Island, for beaches, ponies, and birds, and a short distance from crabbing and fishing areas, this home is perfect for the whole family.

At any time of year, this area is sublime. Assateague Island is home to the National Seashore, one of the most unspoiled beaches on the East Coast, with wonderful warm water perfect for surfing, swimming, and fishing. There are many bike paths. The Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, also on Assateague, is the home of many bird species as well as rare squirrels, turtles, muskrats, deer, elk, and of course the wild ponies.

In the fall snow geese settle in and you can see and hear them until they leave in the spring. What a sight it is when the flock decides to relocate to another area of the marsh. You see a huge cloud of white and hear them chatting as they rise up to the sky. Winter brings blustery days and colorful landscapes, with impressive views of rough waters across Chincoteague Bay. A rare snow paints the landscape. In spring the marsh awakens and many artists come and set up their easels to paint. Even though the name of the house is 'A Summer Place,' this idyllic home on Chincoteague is a perfect place to vacation, all year round.

About The Owner

We have been enjoying Chincoteague for many years. Our family grew up here. Our son got married here. The house has been through several renovations, with bathrooms added, central heat and air, and wifi.

The Owner purchased this house in 1971

What makes this house unique

There are views from every room in A Summer Place. It is also close to Goose Bay, another property that we also own, and there are several other rental properties very close by. It is quiet and off the main road, north of the bridge from the mainland.

Happy because we had and could have our dogs.

  • 5 of 5

I am rating this property five stars because the house fit our needs so well. Had we shown up expecting the Ritz we would have been disappointed. It was the end of season and the house needed some owner care which I'm sure it sees in the off season. Some of the furniture should be retired. We were very happy with layout of the house and the setting and we'd rent it again.
