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.
