Dream Come True

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time ever! The home was a dream come true. It was beautifully decorated, immensely clean, and perfectly situated, Really don’t want to say how nice it was because I don’t want the secret to get out - we definitely want to come back! Thank you Bob and Lorraine, you were very accommodating.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

All was wonderful with this place! Everything that you needed was there, with lots that you would not expect. Floating dock and Crabbing right at the dock was a plus! Owners were very helpful and available as needed. Thanks!

Perfect house for a family of four!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect house for a family of four--not too big and not too small, just right. The owners have beautifully and carefully designed this house to be warm, inviting, and efficient. It truly felt like a home away from home. Everything was clean and in good working order. We loved being able to canoe out of the backyard and see Oyster Bay from the back porch. So beautiful and relaxing!

We loved our stay. The home was spotless, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and very well equipped with anything we needed for our visit. Our absolute favorite spot was the screened back porch. We ate all our meals there and spent every morning and evening just relaxing and enjoying the peaceful views. I loved reading the history books about Chincoteague that were on hand. Bob and Lorraine were a pleasure to work with as our hosts, and we can't wait to make a return visit!

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in July. What is most memorable about the house is that it really felt like staying in someone's home. There are so many interesting decorative features that make staying there feel very welcoming. Bedding and amenities were all great. The floating dock was really useful for getting out on our kayaks. The bay itself is a fantastic place for windsurfing (when it blows), though most of it is not deep. Very quiet neighborhood, and mosquitoes were well controlled. Great enclosed / bug-proof porch with super comfy outdoor furniture and a nice BBQ. The digital door lock is very convenient and saves worry about dealing with keys. We have come to Chincoteague 6 times, and this is by far the best place. We would DEFINITELY choose this place again.
