Yellow Cottage, located 1.7 miles from the historic downtown causeway bridge, 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.

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

Renovations in 2016 to the downstairs 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 features a galley kitchen, dining table for 5, and living room that seats 5. Upstairs with full bath sleeps 5. Backbedroom 1 double bed with new Saatva luxury firm pillow-top mattress. Front bedroom 1 double bed with pillow-top mattress and 1 single bed.

We are 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.

If you make an inquiry or request a reservation, please tell us a little bit about yourself and who is traveling with you, and confirm if you are bringing a pet (pets). We look forward to hearing from you.

It is obvious that the owner is very interested in providing her guests with a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

The only thing you need to bring is your toothbrush, change of clothing, and your food. In my life of travel there is no stay that I can compare. Ms. Hutchinson has thought of everything for your needs and comfort. Even the dog waste scooper was there! The local restaurants were all good with friendly people and good food. The beach at Assateague was smaller than the last time we visited but that was due to erosion caused by hurricanes over the past few years. We were able to see the ponies grazing along the road. Many birds, turtles even a deer and an American Bald Eagle in flight were also seen along the ride to the beach. Lots of camera opportunities along the way. Fuel was $ .10 less expensive on the island when compared to the mainland prices. A vacation well worth booking!

Great beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our over all impression of the yellow beach cottage was fantastic! We had a relaxing time staying on the island. The property was clean and maintained very well. The owner communicated all of the directions and local eateries to us in e-mail, and there was also another listing of places with brochures in the house. We enjoyed the beach, but not the flies. The local farmer's market was very neat to visit, and the local eating facilities were awesome! We have already recommended to our friends and family that this would be a very nice place to visit and stay. Thank you for helping us create a long lasting pleasant memory of our vacation.

Perfect for a week away

  • 5 of 5

The little yellow cottage had pretty much everything we needed including toiletries we might have forgotten. The beach chairs and toys were quite helpful. Everything was in great working order and very clean. House is in a lovely quiet location. Just bring bug spray. Lots and lots of bug spray. The mosquitos wear collars around there! Yikes!! This was our second time renting on Chincoteague and this was a much nicer place than our last. We are a family of 4. If we return for a third trip, we will be back to this place.

Cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (2 teen daughters) really enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and comfortable with lots of thoughtful details that made our stay easier. We liked being outside town a bit and loved sitting in the screened in porch safe from the mosquitos. It was nice to have some extra space and some peace and quiet. Our trip to the island was definitely enjoyed by the whole family!

A Peaceful, Secluded Cottage Experience

  • 4 of 5

This well stocked cottage afforded us a perfect spot to vacation with our dog, Molly. It is quiet and secluded. Bug spray is a necessity, but we managed fine with the Chincoteague national bird! We spent some time on the lovely screened in porch with a handy grill. The cottage is clean, open and charming. We enjoyed some local take out food and AJ's by the Creek for a perfect dining experience.

I would certainly recommend this place to friend or family.

Yellow Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to spend the week with my grandkids during Pony Penning. Close enough to everything but on the outskirts so it was peaceful. The cottage was better than we expected and had everything we needed including very comfortable beds. Victoria was very helpful in helping us navigate the Pony Swim and other questions we had. Screened in porch with fan is absolutely wonderful...spent the morning on it drinking coffee and playing "Go Fish" with my 4 year old grandson.
