Myrtle on Mumford is a replica of a typical single-story Chincoteague home of the 1920's, with modern amenities added, such as central heat and air conditioning. The house is located in the downtown Main Street historic area, less than a five minute walk from town and this year, 2017, we made several new enhancements for our guests. Both closets have been upgraded with 8 ft of drawer space and additional storage area which includes a rod and hangers for clothing. We have acquired more Chincoteague memorabilia as well as renovated the bathroom. The bathroom was rewallpapered and refurnished as our pictures reflect.

About Ernest Dale Holston
The owners, Dale and Denise Holston, are both natives of Chincoteague Island, and their ancestors here date all the way back to the 1700's.

Why Ernest Dale Holston chose Chincoteague Island
The property has belonged to the owners for many years, and Dale lived his first sixteen ears on the same street. This long-standing history on Mumford Street led to the decision to build a vacation home in this location so that visitors could enjoy the atmosphere and spend time in at 1920's style Chincoteague home.
What makes this House unique
As you enter the home, you will see vast assortment of memorabilia from the early 1900's. The home was newly constructed in 2013.

Myrtle on Mumford suited my family’s needs perfectly. The house is in pristine condition, cozy, and thoughtfully appointed with memorabilia from around the island. The house is convenient to both downtown Chincoteague and Assateague Island. Dale was a gracious and thoughtful host. His hospitality enabled my family to enjoy all of the opportunities and wonders this unique area offers.
Chincoteague Vacation 2018
Don and I spent a peaceful and relaxing week in this beautiful clean custom built home which was within walking distance to the park, shops and restaurants. The home was tastefully decorated with antiques and historical pictures of the island. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything one would need to fix meals. We enjoyed sitting on the front and back porches. We were only a short ride away to Assateague National Park and the clean beach. On a nature cruise we saw eagles, dolphin and the wild ponies. The owner was very responsive and clearly cared about making our stay perfect. We would recommend this home to any couple. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Holston.
Great trip to Chincoteague Island with a dear friend!
Lovely visit to the island, touring the area, visiting local shops, enjoying the local shellfish, and watching the annual Christmas parade. Home was immaculate and well-appointed. We will be back...
We came and stayed over the Oyster Festival. We had a terrific time and the home is just beautiful. the only thing we had to bring is our clothes and food.. We will be planning another trip down.......
This home is immaculate and has every convenience/detail in place. It is a very convenient location as several times we walked just one block to town. There is very obvious pride of ownership and up-to-date maintenance. The amenities were well-thought, comfortable and very welcoming. The owner has also decorated the home with local historical memorabilia and provided many books regarding Chincoteague and Assateague. The owner made it clear he is available if needed, but definitely not intrusive. Myrtle on Mumford was a wonderful retreat after our days of pony hunts, exploration, shopping and dining. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and give this home and owner the highest recommendation.
