Chincoteague Pony Swim 2019 is almost upon us and now is the time to plan your visit to the island for this rare and amazing annual spectacle: July 24, 2019.
Our historic Chincoteague bed and breakfast, Miss Molly’s Inn, is less than a mile from the Chincoteague Fairgrounds, where so much of next month’s activity takes place. Our sister inn, Island Manor House bed and breakfast, is just across the street.
Both are here for any and all of your Chincoteague adventures – some of the most exciting of which occur during the month of July! Of course, that means you should book your Chincoteague accommodations sooner rather than later, before they all get snapped up!

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!
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.
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.

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.
