Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge Beach Fun, Part III

May 4th, 2013 by Katie Pate

This is our final post of the Beach Fun series. We hope you come and visit Chincoteague this summer and put some of these suggestions to use!

Kayaking

Kayaks can be launched and beached at both the beach and Toms Cove areas, including Toms Cove Hook. If you are kayaking, keep an eye out for swimmers so you don’t whack them with a paddle! Note: you cannot kayak in lifeguarded sections of the beach, nor are kayaks allowed in refuge impoundments or borrow ditches.

If you need to rent a kayak, simply let us know when your make your reservation or upon arrival and we can connect you with a local vendor.

See Chincoteague in a whole new way when you take out a kayak!

The National Park Service also conducts summer kayaking programs from the Toms Cove Visitor Center to explore the Assateague Island National Seashore. Please contact the Toms Cove Visitor Center for details at (757) 336-6577.

Personal Watercraft Rentals and Tours

You can rent jet skis to explore the waters around the island. Prices are in the range of $95 for one hour. You can also hire companies to take you on jet ski tours. They will lead you around Chincoteague Island with up close views of the Assateague Lighthouse, ponies, marsh wildlife, and more. Take a break on the Sandbar for a quick barrier island beachcombing session.  These tours can be personalized to be as mild or wild as you would like!

Visit the only beach on Assateague Island that allows boats. Locals know this spot for uncrowded summer fun. Look for the ponies and beachcomb for treasures amidst unspoiled nature. These tours takes you around the south end of Chincoteague and back.

Sounds like fun? Just let us know and we ca set up a rental or tour for you!

What Makes Our Chincoteague B and B Special

March 9th, 2012 by Gail

We travel for many reasons. We travel for work and to visit far-flung relations. We travel to see new places and have different experiences. We travel to broaden our minds.

Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast has bikes for guests.

Ride our bikes out to the beach.

Travel can do all of these things. It can also challenge our assumptions and our comfort levels. This is especially true when we travel to extremely remote places, where the luxury of hot water isn’t guaranteed and where roads sometimes peter out into paths. In such instances, travel becomes adventure, and the only thing we can expect is the unexpected.

Adventures are wonderful, and we hope everyone has at least one good adventure in a lifetime.

Yet most of the time, what most of us want when we travel is to be pampered.

One reason travelers choose to stay in our Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast is because we pamper them. We do everything we can to help your stay with us be relaxing and refreshing. From the moment you enter our door, you are our guest. We take that seriously.

Your room is your castle, but the rest of the inn is open to you, as well. Our library has an extensive collection of books for you to read during your stay, and we have many fun board games. There are two fireplaces in common areas, so on chilly evenings, you will always find warmth. A guest refrigerator is kept well stocked with cold beverages, and tea, coffee, and filtered water is always available. We also keep some tasty treats around for when you get the nibbles.

Organizing expeditions can be one of the most exasperating aspects of travel. You know you want to have a scenic boat tour around Chincoteague and Assateague Islands, so you can see the wild ponies, but you don’t quite know where to go for that. Our Concierge Service will happily make the arrangements for you. We’ll also book fishing tours, nature tours, jet skis, canoes and kayaks, and parasailing adventures. When hunger strikes, we’ll recommend restaurants and make the reservations.

It’s easier to pack for vacation if you don’t have to include beach umbrellas, chairs, boogie boards, frisbees, and buckets. With that thought in mind, we supply beach gear for our guests. We even have bikes you can use, so you can pedal around the islands at your leisure.

We want guests of Miss Molly’s Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast to have maximum comfort with the minimum worry. That’s what hospitality is all about.
