enjoy a Chincoteague Island Getaway to the beach

Are you tired of being cooped up and ready for a literal breath of fresh air? Come visit Virginia’s Eastern shore on a Chincoteague Island getaway! Consistent with CDC guidance, Virginia does not have any current quarantine requirements for U.S. citizens arriving from outside the Commonwealth, making our area the perfect getaway.

Chincoteague Island, with its friendly, small community, wild ponies, and pristine beaches, is always good for a visit. A fact that is doubly true in times like these. Our peaceful, barrier island paradise is the perfect place to relax, recharge, and recenter one’s self around the good things in life.

Staying at a smaller inn like Miss Molly’s during your Chincoteague Island getaway, rather than a large hotel, has further advantages. During the 2020 pandemic, hotel chains are cutting services. They’re eliminating hot breakfast and offering pre-packaged to-go items, like breakfast bars, instead. Meanwhile, smaller, cleaner B&B’s like ours still offer hot breakfasts, great coffee, and friendly, relaxed service – six feet apart to comply with CDC guidelines.

Miss Molly’s guests have the option to take breakfast on our lovely, screened-in porch or in the comfort and privacy of their room.

Our breakfasts start with a first course of fruit with pastry. Things like blueberry compote with yogurt, poached pears in a fresh raspberry coulee, or fall fruit crisps accompanied by home baked pumpkin muffins and apple cake. The main course could be stuffed french toast with strawberries and cream, maple syrup, and bacon, or smoked salmon and asparagus quiche with a puff pastry fruit basket, or a full English breakfast with sausage, bacon, tomato, mushrooms, and eggs.

The list of scrumptious possibilities goes on. You certainly won’t leave breakfast table hungry!

Dave and Renata work really hard to make your stay comfortable and breakfast is exceptional. Everyone is COVID-smart. This was my first time to Chincoteague and I definitely want to return.
