Think a B&B on Chincoteague is too expensive? Think again!

February 4th, 2013 by Katie Pate

One of the worst misconceptions about the modern bed and breakfast is that B&B’s are for older, wealthy people. We are here to tell you – that’s just not true!

Let us explain how a stay at Miss Molly’s Chincoteague Inn is a great value.

1. Location ~ We are on Main Street, which means you can walk to restaurants and shopping. Save money on gas and relieve yourself from the burden of driving by having centrally-located lodging.

2. Elegant Outdoor Spaces ~ Our B&B has five wonderful porches where you can feel the sea breezes. Adorned with rocking chairs, loungers and even a hammock on our large second floor deck, we provide more than just a bed and a roof over your head.

3. Complementary Snacks and Beverages ~ Hotels these days have baskets with snacks and bottles of water in your room, however, the water costs $5 and the granola bar is $3. That doesn’t happen at Miss Molly’s, where we have tea, coffee, cookies and home-baked goodies available 24 hours a day in our lovely screened in porch. For us, this is just part of great hospitality!

4. Plentiful Amenities ~ In your room, enjoy chocolates on your pillow, fluffy robes, high quality hand-made soaps and shampoos, bottled water and makeup remover cloths. Free of charge.

5. Beach Gear ~ Save space in your suitcase and let us provide the beach equipment. We have bikes,

Plan a Spring Vacation to Chincoteague Island

February 9th, 2012 by Gail

Now is the time to plan a spring vacation to Chincoteague Island.

Dive into Light

Peace and tranquility await you on Chincoteague Island.

The Island is waking up after a quiet winter. Flowers are beginning to push their way out of the ground. Piping Plovers are starting to arrive, flexing their wings in preparation for the wonderfully intricate courtship dances they will soon do. Shops are opening. People are taking their shoes off and letting the sun-warmed sand kiss their feet. Spring may not yet be officially here, but it is on the way.

Our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast opens this weekend, February 10, 2012. People who make reservations for our opening weekend may take advantage of our Romantic Getaway Special and stay three nights for the price of two. We’ll throw in a bottle of chilled Champagne and some tasty truffles to help make the occasion feel extra special. It’s the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. These guests will also be able to participate in Chincoteague’s 6th annual Death By Chocolate event on the 11th; can you survive eating your way through the shops of Chincoteague?

If you’d rather travel to Chincoteague Island during the Presidents’ Day long weekend, take advantage of our Let the Romance Linger package. Sip Mimosas with your Sunday brunch. Sleep in on Monday morning. Enjoy 10% off your three night stay.

When you stay on Chincoteague Island during February and March, you feel like you’re a local. Most people visit the island during the summer, when they can swim in the warm water and attend festivals and watch the ponies cross the channel. If you don’t mind chilly water, and if you love to walk down quiet village streets, travel now.

When the weather is less than ideal, which sometimes happens at this time of year, pull up a comfy chair at Sundial Books.  It takes less than five minutes to walk to Sundial from our Chincoteague Virginia Bed and Breakfast, and you can lose yourself there for hours. Or walk a bit farther to Libertino Lanes, a small bowling alley with music and food. When was the last time you went bowling for the fun of it?  Then again, you may simply want to curl up with a cup of tea here at the inn. Ask us about our English Afternoon Tea, and treat yourself to an assortment of tasty little sandwiches, scones and heavenly cream.

There is something about spring that makes many of us want to travel.  We crave fresh air and open vistas. We dream of hopping in our cars and driving until it feels right to stop.

Sound like you? Then pack your bag, fill your tank, and head to our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast this weekend.

 

 

Girlfriend Getaway to Chincoteague Island

January 31st, 2012 by Gail

Spring is a wonderful time for a Girlfriend Getaway at our Chincoteague Island, Virginia Bed and Breakfast. We open for the season on February 10, 2012. Plan your getaway now, and be here in time to see the snowbells in bloom.

AssateagueIslandNationalPark-29

Borrow beach gear and spend an afternoon building sandcastles.

February and Valentine’s Day are often linked with romance and romantic getaways. That’s just swell for people who are in relationships. For single people, however, it can be disheartening.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

You don’t need a romantic relationship to travel; it’s fun to travel with a friend or two. Indeed, sometimes it’s even more fun to go away with girlfriends. That’s why Girlfriend Getaways were invented.

This spring, reconnect with old friends or make memories with new friends. Take advantage of the Spring Special at our Chincoteague Bed and Breakfast, and stay three nights for the cost of two. Don’t let couples have all the fun.

Chincoteague is a quiet small town, but there is plenty to do here. Walk over to Sundial Books, where you can curl up in a comfy chair with a cup of coffee and get lost in a book. Ride bikes across the bridge to Assateague Island, where you can walk on the beach, climb to the top of the lighthouse, and explore miles of trails. Borrow binoculars and head out to the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, where thousands of migratory birds rest and feed. Take a boat tour around the islands, or paddle around them yourself.

Enjoy gourmet breakfasts here at the inn, and ask about our afternoon English Tea. Mention this blog and receive a free afternoon tea with the purchase of one. If you loved tea parties as a child, you’ll find they’re even better as an adult.

Call a few friends who like to do what you like to do, no matter what that is. Then plan a Girlfriend Getaway at Miss Molly’s Inn, and celebrate the arrival of spring.

 

 

Rediscover Love on Chincoteague Island

January 7th, 2012 by Gail

Free Souls Embrace Creative Commons

Rediscover each other this February, on Chincoteague Island.

Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year. Instead of trying to woo your sweetheart after work, consider letting the romance linger over a few days. Spend those days at our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast, Miss Molly’s Inn.

A romantic getaway can rekindle passion for couples who have been together more than 10, 20, and 30 years. It can reinvigorate romance between exhausted parents. New couples and newlyweds hardly need encouragement, but benefit from romantic getaways as well.

Parents: find someone to watch your lovely children and sneak away to Chincoteague Island. Spend a couple of nights thinking about the two of you, and just the two of you. Go to bed when you want to go to bed, and stay in bed as long as you like. Stroll hand in hand on the beaches of Assateague Island, stopping when you want to stop. Climb to the top of the Assateague Lighthouse and admire the view in silence. Linger over breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s important to remind one another how much you love each other. It’s important to take some time for yourselves.

Empty nesters: when was the last time you went away with romance in your heart? We know, it’s just the two of you at home, and you don’t need to travel to find romance. But when was the last time you stepped out of your routine? When was the last time you spent hours talking together, over a bottle of wine? When was the last time you sat together on the beach, listening to the surf lap against the sand?

A romantic retreat in our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast encourages couples to see the best in one another. Fall in love all over again. Come to Chincoteague this February.

Ask about our specials:

  • Romantic Weekend: February 10, 11, 12, get three nights for the price of two, a bottle of champagne, and truffles.
  • Romance Lingers: February 17, 18, 19, 10% off three nights, with a late Sunday brunch and mimosas.
  • Spring Special: all spring, experience three nights of romance for the price of two.

Resolve to Travel to Chincoteague Island

December 30th, 2011 by Gail

The arrival of the new year inspires many of us to review our lives. It is a concrete marker of the passage of time, and as such, it sparks reflection. We think about the past year, about what we wanted to do and what we did. Our thoughts then shift to the coming year.

Travel should always be included in plans for the new year. We may not all be able to leave the country for lengthy vacations in exotic locations, but we can all escape for a weekend or two at some point. When you do, make it special.

Chincoteague Island: a relaxing retreat close DC, Annapolis, Baltimore, and Norfolk.

Our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast is well situated for a weekend getaway. We are about 2 hours from Norfolk, Virginia, 3 hours from Annapolis, Maryland, and 3.5 hours from both Baltimore and Washington D.C. Once you escape city traffic, the drive is relaxing and beautiful.

Miss Molly’s Inn, our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast, is located in the heart of the historic village; the setting is quite unlike the large metropolitan areas few hours away. Once settled, you need not use your car again. Use the inn’s bicycles to explore our island and neighboring Assateague Island, where the famous wild ponies live. Ride to walking trails and beaches, or ride simply for the joy of feeling the breeze on your cheeks.

Many of our guests decide to indulge in the real English Afternoon Tea offered at Miss Molly’s. Think homemade scones dripping with jam and cream, strawberries and cream. There is nothing quite like an English Tea; the simple act of sitting down in the middle of the afternoon to delight in food and drink and good company is extraordinary in itself.

Folks who still have room for dinner will find a number of excellent restaurants within pedaling distance: Etta’s Channel Side Restaurant, AJ’s on the Creek, Steamers – All You Can Eat, The Village Restaurant, and more.

Chincoteague Island is close enough to Norfolk, D.C, Annapolis, and Baltimore to visit often. Yet it is hard to imagine a place that feels more different than these big cities. The pace of life on Chincoteague is slow and relaxing. It invites leisurely walks on the beach, and long hours with a good book by the fire.

The time for New Year’s resolutions has come. Resolve to travel to our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast in 2012. Make your plans now, and take advantage of our Spring Special: stay three nights for the price of two, or four nights for the price of three (and so on). When you look back on the year on December 31, 2012, you’ll be so pleased you did.

Happy New Year!

Spring is Special on Chincoteague Island

November 30th, 2011 by Gail

Solitude

Rest and rejuvenate on Chincoteague Island, spring 2012.

It’s true. Spring is a glorious time on Chincoteague Island and Assateague Island. The coast of Virginia usually has mild winters, so spring comes early. Crocus, Hyacinth, and Glory-of-the-snow start popping up in February, which is when our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast opens for the season.

Spring is a natural time to travel. Most folks put their heads down and get to work after the busy holiday season. They think of little besides work and family commitments for some six weeks, and by the middle of February, they’re ready to look up and have some fun. They’re ready to breathe in some new air. There is no finer air than the air of Chincoteague and Assateague Islands.

Spring 2012 Special at Miss Molly’s Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast.

To inspire much-needed travel, we’re offering a Spring Special at our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfasts. Stay three nights for the price of two nights, or four nights for the price of three.

Chincoteague and Assateague Islands encourage relaxation. The sound of the surf against the beach is never far from the ear. The breeze, be it chilly or mild, feels cleansing. The outdoors feels inviting; we find ourselves wanting to go for long beach walks and meandering bike rides. We want to hop in kayaks and explore coves and bays. We want to get as close as we can to the Wild Ponies of Assateague. We want to watch birds, throw frisbees, and sit on the porch with a blanket on our laps and a good book in our hands. That’s what a spring vacation is all about.

It’s not too early to plan a spring vacation. In fact, it’s the perfect time. Take advantage of our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast Spring Special, and make your plans today.

Thanksgiving on Chincoteague Island means fresh air, wild ponies, and scenic cruises.

An Ideal Thanksgiving

October 22nd, 2011 by Gail

Thanksgiving feasts are best tackled with a healthy appetite. The best way to create a healthy appetite is to engage in some sort of physical activity, preferably outside, in the fresh air. You’ll find plenty of fresh air, inviting open space, and a delicious feast this Thanksgiving at our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast.

Stimulate your appetite by watching others eat.


If you typically host Thanksgiving at your house, you know you spend the bulk of the day in the kitchen. You cook, you clean, you cook, you clean, you cook, and then you clean yourself up in time to welcome guests. You then offer drinks and appetizers and make sure that everyone is happy.

It can be difficult to relax even during the feast itself. A good host or hostess has one eye always assessing the needs of guests. Glasses must be replenished, dirty plates soundlessly swept away, pie cut and coffee brewed. It’s no wonder that Thanksgiving leftovers get such rave reviews: many people can’t really enjoy the meal on the day itself.

The only thing you’ll have to do if you spend Thanksgiving at Miss Molly’s Chincoteague Bed and Breakfast is walk across the street to our sister inn at 4 p.m. Guests of Miss Molly’s Inn are invited to share in the traditional Thanksgiving buffet we’ll serve at the 1848 Island Manor House. Help yourself to turkey, cranberry sauce, potatoes, sweet potatoes, greens, salad, and of course pie. Eat to your hearts’ content, then amble back to your room at Miss Molly’s and put up your feet.

Spend three days walking on the beaches of Chincoteague and Assateague Islands. Scan the skies and water for migrating birds – there should still be plenty of them around during Thanksgiving weekend. Visit the Assateague National Seashore and the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. Admire the wild ponies. Bike around the two islands (we’ll supply the bikes). Get a start holiday shopping in the unique shops and art galleries close to your lodging.

The bottom line? We want you to enjoy yourself. That’s all.

Thanksgiving Package at the Island Manor – $695.00 Inclusive:

  • 3 nights accommodation
  • gourmet breakfast each morning
  • homemade snacks and nibbles available 24 hrs a day
  • concierge service
  • bicycles to ride around the island
  • a Dozen chocolate covered strawberries in your room on arrival
  • traditional Thanksgiving buffet dinner and bottle of wine for two at 4 pm

October is Clergy Appreciation Month

October 7th, 2011 by Gail

Footprints in the Sand

Find serenity during the Clergy Retreat at our Chincoteague Bed and Breakfast.

Clergy are always there for their congregations. They counsel us when we’re troubled, visit us when we’re ill, and share in our joys. They baptize our children, join us in matrimony, and entrust the souls of our deceased to God. They serve their congregation with unfailing dedication.

This is challenging work, and it’s never ending.

Most of us don’t stop to think about the well being of our pastors, priests, and ministers. It’s their job to worry about us, not the other way around. We expect them to be there when we need them, and we don’t tend to think too much about their needs.

Yet clergy have their own lives, with families, trials, joys, and tribulations. Their work may be a calling, but it is work nonetheless and it can be as draining, frustrating, and saddening as any other job. Even more so. Clergy take on our burdens, so we don’t have to bear them alone.

They don’t ask us to care for them or worry about them, and they don’t expect us to do so. Yet once a year, we can.

October is Clergy Appreciation Month, and in honor of that, we’re offering a Clergy Special at our Chincoteague Bed and Breakfast.

The Clergy Retreat includes a three night stay at our Chincoteague Bed and Breakfast, on beautiful and relaxing Chincoteague Island. Each day will start with a gourmet breakfast, and snacks will be available throughout the day. Enjoy Afternoon Tea one day, a lunch of homemade soup and fresh artisan breads another day, and hot drinks one evening.

Take long walks on the beach and explore the island by bike – we supply the bikes and the beach gear. Relax by the fireplace in your room or in common areas. Spend time with your loved ones or cherished colleagues.

Spend a few days recharging before the busy holiday season. Rediscover serenity and peace. Let us minister to you.

The Clergy Retreat is $495 per couple for three nights. Bring your spouse or travel with fellow Clergy and commune with fellow believers. Take this time to take care of yourself.

Please call 1.800.221.5620 for more information.
