I'm a nature lover and artist who loves Chincoteague and the connecting National Seashore island, Assateague. I've been vacationing on Chincoteague for many years and have just purchased my dream house there, the Blue Pearl Cottage.
Mary Klein purchased this house in 2012
The cottage is immaculate, sunny, has a wrap-around porch and large screened sunroom and is located in a very quiet, beautiful setting. Yet it is only a ten minute drive to glorious beaches and amazing wildlife and a few minutes into the quaint town of Chincoteague.
The Blue Pearl, a beautiful Chincoteague beach cottage nestled beside pine woods, offers privacy and quiet, even in the summer months. Relax on the wrap-around deck or large screened-in sun porch with views of pine woods and a green backyard. The pristine Assateague Island, a short drive or bike ride away, offers unparalleled opportunities to swim, sunbathe, hike, bike, fish, go crabbing, surf, watch the wild ponies, Great Blue Herons and other wildlife.
We had a wonderful stay at the Blue Pearl Cottage! We have been to Chincoteague before, but the owner of the home has a wonderful handwritten book of suggestions in town for restaurants, shops and sightseeing places.
The house was a perfect size for my husband, myself and our two small children (1 and 5). The quiet location was PERFECT for the afternoons when our youngest daughter napped and the rest of us relaxed in the screened in porch and read our books. There are so many birds to watch in the backyard and there are bird books in the house so you can look up what you are looking at!
The home itself is wonderfully decorated and stocked with kitchen necessities. The home is close to everything and the neighborhood was really quiet. My 5 year old loved pointing out the lighthouse every time we would leave the driveway!
I found both the rental agency and the home owner wonderful to work with.
There is no Wifi, which I thought might bother me, but in fact it was a blessing to truly "unplug" for a week!
We are hoping to return in the fall when maybe the mosquitos aren't so intense! :)
My wife and I, along with another couple, visited the Blue Pearl over the weekend for a short fall getaway from DC. We had a wonderful time. The cottage is full of charm and the furnishings are lovely, beachy zen meets modernist. It was such a comfortable, clean, and welcoming space. The kitchen was well equipped to cook a birthday fest! There is a gorgeous screened in porch that you can't see in the pictures. The location is fabulous- right by a marsh, close to downtown and just a few minutes drive (or bike ride) from the Wildlife Refuge/Beach. Such a relaxing getaway! Owners were so wonderful and very helpful. Cannot wait to visit again. Thanks so much.
What a super place. Our family of four visited Chincoteague for the very first time this spring while the town and the island were still sleepy and quiet. The Blue Pearl was perfect. Clean, spacious, stylishly furnished in a beachy mid century way... It was comfortable and just what we needed. During warmer months, the decks will be perfect for sunbathing. If you bring bicycles, you will have everything you need to get around. We will definitely stay here next time.
Beautifully decorated, quiet retreat. in great location. You can see the Asseteague Lighthouse from out front. I actually found mattress to be fine in master bedroom but I did have the TV cable issue ( however owner has removed listing of that being an amenity) The house was very clean and everything worked fine for me. This place is close to everything the area has to offer and you can walk to restaurants and tidal views. You can walk to kayak and canoe rentals and you can bicycle to Asseteague
. If you want a serene natural spot this is it!
I wanted to write a fantastic review because the owner was so nice about everything.(management co. a little stiff/ maybe just professional). Instead I will make it honest for future renters. The house is in a very quiet location which was wonderful for us. You do have one house almost on top of you but there are trees and bushes in between and you didn't hear any noise from it. The screened porch on the other side looks into woods so more privacy on that side. Wished there was a table out there. They say the house is newly renovated- there is new paint and floors look newly redone but still old in many ways (peeling wallpaper in bathroom, broken locks on doors and windows). They need to replace the mattress in master bedroom and one of the twins- they look and feel about 30 years old. The sofa bed is actually a futon. We survived fine because I brought some foam things to put on the beds ($9 at walmart) that made it comfortable. The door of the 3rd bedroom does not close- a little problem for my adult daughter. We tried to close it as much as we could which caused a problem when she tried to get out to go to the bathroom at 6 am- it opened with a bang and woke everyone up. There is one tiny tv in bedroom and no dvd or cable/satellite as far as we could find. There were no instructions on where to find things or how to work them. Place was dirty when we got there- had to sweep up the house at the beginning and end (they say housekeeping is included but then the note you get when you pick up key is that you need to sweep, vacuum, and take out trash yourself). I am trying to be honest though a lot of these things may not bother some people at all- we actually had a very pleasant stay and the fact that it was so quiet at night and in the morning was a huge plus for us. I think if they put in new mattresses, fixed that bedroom door and sprayed for ants (and maybe changed their housekeepers) this house would be wonderful!
