Tranquil, peaceful, relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our stay at this cottage in Chincoteague - what a lovely home! The screened-in back porch was heavenly for lazy mornings with coffee or relaxing early evenings with a refreshing drink. The property owner maintains the property well, and has supplied all the amenities of home. Nice, quiet location on the island, but not too far from the downtown area. It was great for the dogs too. Just make sure you bring your bug spray - only issue with the trip! Would definitely recommend a stay here!

Peaceful retreat, yet close to eveything

  • 5 of 5

This home is very warm and welcoming. We only stayed a few nights to see the wild ponies, but I wish it had been longer. The whole area is great it is like a sleepy little beach town with a great national wild life refuge in it.

The home was very nicely decorated, with some great antique pieces mixed in, which I just loved. The bed was super comfy and it was convenient having the two full baths. We only used the downstairs walk in shower which was really nice and plenty of hot water.

Our favorite part of the home was the back porch, we sat out there in the morning having coffee and in the evening. It is such a relaxing way to start and end your day.

The owners were super easy to deal with and they had extra items available that most houses don't which was a nice touch. There were Q tips & cotton balls along with beach towels and chairs. The beach towels and chairs are super nice, because it is less stuff to pack for vacation.

We would definitley stay again, only longer so we could enjoy the beach and all the town has to offer.

Quaint, Relaxing and Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

What an adorable home! We loved it! From the moment we arrived, we felt "at home". It was a perfect get-a-way for our mother/daughter weekend. The bedrooms were comfortable, and the screened porch was our favorite morning spot. A nice quiet area of the island too!

Comfortable and cozy home for our week away!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with Yellow Cottage, it was perfect for our 2 adults and a toddler. Quiet part of the island, up the neck, but still close enough to everything for our liking. Clean and nicely appointed, had all the necessities plus all the little extras. Only down side for us was that the upstairs, where the bedrooms are got pretty warm even with the AC running. We would love to return to this lovely home! Victoria was very prompt on getting back to us with questions prior to check-in and during our stay. Thanks for a great week!
