Chincoteague Island Scenic Cruises

April 24th, 2012 by Gail

Miss Molly’s Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast welcomes guests from just about everywhere. Many of our guests come from urban areas, in particular Baltimore, Annapolis, and Washington D.C. They like it here because it’s easy to connect with nature on Assateague and Chincoteague Islands.

Scenic cruises are a favorite activity for guests spring through fall. They’re a wonderful way to see the islands and discover the abundant wildlife that makes its home here.

Take a Sunset Cruise while staying at our Chincoteague Island B&B.

If you’re interested in circumnavigating Assateague Island, taking a sunset cruise or spending an afternoon on a nature tour, let us know. Our concierge service will make all of the arrangements for you; you need only let us know what you would like to do and when you would like to do it.

We recommend the following Chincoteague Island scenic cruises:

  • Daisey’s Nature Cruises with Captains Tom and Ted Daisey. The Daisey family were among the first settlers of Chincoteague, and Tom and Ted know these waters better than their own hands. They have a deep appreciation for the land, the water, and the animals that live here. They know the most likely spots to find dolphin, bald eagles, and the wild ponies of Assateague.  The Sunset Cruise is very romantic.
  • Spider’s Explorer Pontoon Cruises specialize in “Around the Island” tours. There are never more than 6 passengers during these two hour cruises around Chincoteague Island. You’ll learn about waterfowl, the Wild Ponies of Assateague, sea turtles, dolphins, and more.
  • Island Cruises is another excellent organization. Captain Carlton Leonard has been negotiating the waters around Chincoteague Island for most of his life. He and the other captains are seasoned eco-guides; they are also witty and personable. These tours are always fun.

Scenic cruises make a delightful addition to a Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast getaway at Miss Molly’s.

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.
