Located 1.7 miles from the historic downtown causeway bridge, Yellow Cottage is ideal for 1 or 2 couples, 5 friends, or a family of 5. Flowering bushes, rushes, and pine trees surround this spacious lot that overlooks the salt marshes and ponds on the quiet northern end of Chincoteague Island. Herons, egrets, geese and mallards on the water and warblers among the shrub thickets are a daily sight. The Salt Marsh Lane/Wildcat Road trail is just up the road.

Check-in after 4 p.m. Checkout by 11 a.m. Amenities and provisions include Internet WiFi, ironed bed linens, bath and beach towels, paper and soap supplies, paperback books and puzzle and cards, beach chairs and sand toys. The long side driveway parks two cars back to back or one car and boat hitch. The screened back porch with wicker furniture seating for 5, a Weber propane grill, and a ceiling fan is a tranquil spot. A short path leads to a sitting bench by a small pond.

Downstairs renovations in 2016 added a front door entry with mudroom, laundry area, and bathroom with tiled walk-in shower. An inner wall was removed, windows added, and floor leveled on the south wall to expand the living area. New comfort height Toto commodes installed. The open layout downstairs features a galley kitchen, dining table for 5, and living room that seats 5. Upstairs with full bath sleeps 5. Back bedroom 1 double bed with new Saatva luxury firm pillow-top mattress. Front bedroom 1 double bed with pillow-top mattress and 1 single bed. The cottage is not equipped with a dishwasher, kitchen island, or queen size beds.

Yellow Cottage is located 4 miles from Assateague Island, the site of the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and Assateague National Seashore. Vehicle entry fee required but no pets allowed. The Refuge features a spectacular variety of migratory birds, plants, and the famous wild Chincoteague ponies. Hiking or biking the several miles of nature trails is an excellent way to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Island. The beautiful Seashore features the only public beach on the Islands.
