Lots to Discover!!

The owner was very prompt and friendly in his response to us. We loved the house. We had it at capacity and did not feel cramped at all, there was plenty of space for everyone. The house is very kid-frienly and has lots of character and charm. I loved the outdoor shower! There are plenty of extras that come with the house... lots of books, movies, games, a nice sized yard and a garage full of goodies including kayaks and bicycles! Thank you to the owners for sharing everything with us! We were within walking distance of an ice cream parlor, restaurant, grocery store, and other shops. My only complaint was that we didn't have enough time. This was our first trip to Chincoteague. I'd like to visit again next year and stay longer than a weekend. I would definitely stay at the Salty Dogs' Lair again!

It was late August when my family decided for a quick get away at chincoteague. Desperate to find a bigger place instead of a hotel I found this place that is available for 2 nights. The owner very promptly responded back to me and have a very reasonable price. What a steal!!! Beautiful little house where you can have access to the town and a short drive to the beach and sceneries. The house was bright and clean and has everything you need. I just wish visitors of this place don't leave their things behind like their spices and stuff. It was just cluttering the cupboards. The garage also needs some organization. In short, it's a nice place to stay all in all!

Would come back again, great location

We came for the weekend and were happy with the house. We were celebrating my mother-in-law's birthday, and it was nice that we could all be under one roof and be able to hang out unlike at a hotel. Our girls (ages 7 & 9) loved the bunk beds and I liked that they had their own room. It was nice that everyone had their own space (us and our parents too), yet we could all eat together and watch a movie. We used the bikes in the garage twice, and enjoyed biking around the neighborhood (even cruised down to the carnival grounds to see the ponies still there). The location was ideal, we walked down to Sugarbakers to get fresh doughnuts in the morning and enjoyed all the local shops. The house does need a little work, but mostly cosmetic. We would definitely stay there again, thanks!!

Coming back for a second year..............

This was my second year coming to stay at this house with my family. I was very pleased to see that there was a screen door (behind the regular one) installed this year. It had been a recommendation that I extended to the owner last year. So, we had an excellent time again. The town was just as lovely as it always is and the convenience of being a block away from all the stores and the dock is unbeatable. My parents who are in their seventies really enjoy being able to go for walks in the morning or sunset time. My daughter and nephew have plenty of space to play inside or outside of the house in the yard. We had a few visitors walking around the front door.....a lovely family of ducks. The children were very excited to feed them pieces of their cereal that morning. I would recommend this home to any family that wants to have a great time away from the city noise.

The house is just as it's described in the listing...full of character. My family and I had a wonderful vacation on the island. The house is perfectly located and all of the "stuff" in the garage was awesome... Bikes, kayaks, etc. The unexpected surprise was the wonderful neighbors across the street! Guy and Mary were friendly and inviting to us. Mary was born on the day of the first Pony swim, 88 years ago! Oh, yeah and there's an ice cream parlor kitty corner to the house across the street! Perfect!
