About Pat Hutchings

We're the Hutchings, Pat and Harmon, use the white button to inquire if you'd like to speak to us.That's our Grandchildren delighted to check the crab traps at Spinnaker Waterfront's private dock on a private canal which leads directly into Oyster Bay. Crabbing is a favorite activity for young children visiting Ponyisland rental home, especially for the first time.

We enjoy birding and hiking the trails on Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and the wonderful sand beach on Assateague National Seashore. There's always so much to do and lots of FREE things for families with children from the NASA Wallops Island Visitor Center to the 2 Visitor centers with Ranger activities and schedules. We love the biking trails and picnic tables at the beach for grilling our fresh caught seafood dinner. We love wildlife and also really enjoy exploring the Eastern Shore Area, including Smith and Tangier Islands in the Chesapeake Bay. Fun to explore as one of the islands doesn't have cars ... .you can ride around in golf carts or walk ... it's small. Just take a boat over from Crisfield MD about an hour away. Also Rehobeth DE and tax free shopping is always one of our stops if we're heading north, Ocean City's boardwalk. South, we always stop in Onancock and mosey around the little roads on the eastern shore discovering great out of the way seafood restaurants and quaint towns. Sometimes we go out on charter head boats from Chincoteauge. If we're going south toward Virginia Beach, we always stop in the middle of the famous Chesapeake Bay bridge tunnel and watch the fishermen -- haven't fished ourselves there yet, but it's on our bucket list!

We really were looking for a place to relax that was only a couple of hours from Philadelphia PA and Washington DC and we're thrilled to have found Chincoteague and been able to build in Oyster Bay after finding a wonderful waterfront lot that was larger than others. Plus it had stunning water views for our dream house.

Why Pat Hutchings chose Chincoteague Island

We 4 bathrooms, Free WiFi plus an outdoor shower! You'llenjoy Assateague beach & ponies! Our guests' comfort is very important to us! Spinnaker Waterfront is located in the private Oyster Bay I Community, Enjoy the unspoiled, laid back atmosphere on the Islands with fresh seafood meals, in luxury! As renters we couldn't find exactly the house we wanted so had architecturally designed, and built to order. We were very fortunate to have stayed in several of Richard Vesely's designed homes on Chincoteague Island that were available as vacation rentals. He helped us pick out the waterfront lot and then he designed the house to capture the incredible water views in 3 directions. We knew we wanted a private dock for boating, fishing, canoeing and kayaking. We knew we wanted a single house and lots of privacy. We wanted to be able to swim off of the private dock and be near the beach. We like being on the eastern side of Chincoteague Island VA to view Assateague Island from one of our 3 decks. We wanted an enclosed porch to enjoy the water views and for al fresco dining. We wanted to enjoy fantastic sunrises and sunsets, and have room for a King bed, and have back yard for grilling and kids to play outside but still close to shopping, town and restaurants. We wanted a boat slip and plenty of parking and room for a boat trailer or two. We wanted to be near great fishing and crabbing. We like this location as we can enjoy the bay views by Assateague channel. We wanted room to build a wonderful single family luxury waterfront vacation rent house that was also a luxury waterfront rental vacation home that we could share with those looking for a nice, waterfront vacation rental on Chincoteague Island for families but we also wanted it to be a perfect romantic place for honeymooners or those looking for a romantic getaway. We wanted it to be open all year and have a cozy wood burning fireplace for fall, winter, spring weekends. .... and we think it is!!

What makes this house unique

We are 'owner managed, with 5 star reviews all over the net.Relaxing waterfront dining on the comfortable screened porch; a winters day by the inviting fireplace; alluring water views in three directions; and wakening to the tranquil sounds of nature.

Come for a romantic getaway for a weekend or a week and we'll supply the firewood! Sure, we have wi-fi, but we also have special nooks and crannies -- enjoy your morning coffee from one of our private decks (we have 3 balconies) overlooking Assateague or enjoy it on our screened in porch both with fantastic water views! Bring the family for a fantastic summer vacation with lots of free activities for the children and they're educational too! Perfect place for home schooling parents to bring the kids. Catch your dinner from our private dock and enjoy dining on our screened in porch. We even supply the crab traps. If you're from NY or New England or Ohio, PA, West VA, S Carolina or GA .. you're only hours away from one of the best vacations you ever had ... one with memories that will last a lifetime. We know how special family vacations are and how few there are over a lifetime, so we personally make your reservation and make sure that you have all of the information you'll need for that truly special vacation. And we also have someone who lives on the island who is on call should you need anything or even just want to ask for a recommendation for a restaurant!

She's been caring for Spinnaker for many years and considers all of our guest to be 'her guest' doing everything she can to make it nice for you! Where else can you just reach into the kitchen from the screened in porch and grab another cup of coffee? When you want a rental house and not a condo ... think of Spinnaker Waterfront. If you have allergies, Spinnaker has always been a no pet home as our family members have severe allergies also. We love pets but cannot host them at Spinnaker ... we hope you understand. But bring your birding book

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all soaked up the unforgettable beauty & tranquility of our stay in this spacious house so perfectly designed. The interior allowed us to relax and enjoy all the books, games, toasty fireplace and every TV Channel desired. The wonderful Spinnaker left nothing to be desired.

Seven of us slept so very comfortable and the peacefulness & serenity of inside and out was 'Heaven on Earth'.

We enjoyed superb dining in restaurants and here. Memorable stay in this lovely canal off Oyster Bay The Spinnaker.

Peaceful relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Kicked off our Summer with a Memorial Day weekend retreat to this well-appointed home. After a long day in the car, immediately felt right at home, and that was before we discovered our personal welcome package waiting in the dining room!

This home was EXACTLY as advertised, and every detail/question/concern was addressed from the time of reservation until the end of our stay.

The weather was a little cool, as it has been all Spring this year, so the beach was a little less inviting...but no matter....our family had a beautiful deck with a private dock to hang out on! Our kids enjoyed netting baby jellies, shrimp, and any other critters they could find right from the unexpected surprise.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Spinnaker and will definitely be back...there was immediate talk of making this an annual ritual!

Thanks Pat!!

Comfortable, clean and quaint- perfect get-away

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, unique in design and lends itself well to family relaxation. Three of us stayed here for 3 nights. We each had our own room and bath, with plenty of space to cook, eat, chill, and enjoy the views of the water from the three-sided window in the living room or the windows in the dining area. While it was too cool to enjoy the outside living area much, we were able to take advantage of the grill and its equipment and the deck one night.

The kitchen had everything we needed. Light switches were marked, the decor well-suited to the beach location. Pat did an amazing job of promptly answering questions, sharing local events with us, and even leaving a welcome gift for us.

This amazing rental afforded us a much more comfortable and homey stay than a motel room would have done.

Spinnaker was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Spinnaker for a special joint celebration for my parents 60th birthdays. The house layout was perfect for the three different family groups (ages 3-60) as each essentially had their own area with a spacious, beautifully laid out living room for when we all were together. The four bedrooms and four bathrooms were spotless and well appointed and having a full sized washer and dryer was definitely a plus. The kitchen had everything we could have wanted or needed in terms of appliances, utensils, dishes, pots and pans. The kitchen was flanked on one side by a dining room with lovely natural lighting and a wonderful view of the the bay. On the other side of the kitchen was a screened porch with a picnic table and additional patio dining set for four, also with a panoramic view of the bay. Despite the rainy weather, we had fun on the waterside dock crabbing with the pots provided (they were delicious) and wished we could have spent more time outside. We would recommend Spinnaker to anyone looking for a unique, well-appointed and maintained vacation spot. The owner was so helpful and easy to work with and the caretaker provided many thoughtful, personal touches that we all appreciated. Thanks for helping our family make fantastic, lifetime memories!

Perfect for all 4 couples!

  • 5 of 5

2nd stay at Spinnaker Waterfront and it’s even better than the last time.

We stayed with 3 other retired  couples this time and enjoyed having our own bedrooms and bathrooms.

One chilly and rainy day we couldn’t go fishing but enjoyed the fireplace and appreciated the nice dry firewood the owners supplied.

Really enjoyed seeing the Chincoteague wild ponies again, and this time we did get to the Wallops NASA base.  

We are planning on bringing our grandchildren for a week next summer. There are so many free activities that we can enjoy with them from catching crabs and swimming off the dock,  surf fishing on Assateague, and even climbing the light house.  Plus the 2 visitor centers on Assateague and Wallops can keep them busy if weather doesn’t let us enjoy the National Seashore which is my favorite beach.

Especially enjoyed lots of take-out seafood, and the savings vs eating in restaurants.

But cooked lots of great breakfasts in the wonderful kitchen that was exceptionally well stocked with everything from paper products to spices and every pot and pan you can imagine including a large crock pot for our gang!

First time in rental home

  • 5 of 5

First time staying in a Vacation Rental.  Spinnaker Waterfront was super clean, great location, lots of privacy, and had wonderful views and amenities. Most fun as well as relaxing getaway I’ve ever had.

We brought our bikes and kayaks and loved the locked storage area where we could keep it all.

Owner Pat was great to work directly with and did not charge us the Service Fee that many of the websites charge if you book through them. 

All the great Reviews from other renters gave us the confidence to try a vacation home instead of a hotel, and also we liked having someone local to contact when we had a question about going out on charter fishing and wildlife tours.

Would love to return in another season to enjoy the fireplace and the birding.
