Great property with comfortable character!

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults, 2 children, and a Labrador Retriever, and we all enjoyed the house very much. We stayed for a week in late August, and got incredibly lucky with fantastic weather. We were very appreciative of the fenced back yard, and the home had a light and comfortable feel. Lots of natural light, plenty of window AC units, and a well-stocked kitchen. The house has places that aren't level, and corners that show wear, but nothing you wouldn't expect, and nothing that bothered us in the slightest. Very clean and well kept place.

If we do come back to Chinoteague, we'd be very likely to stay in this house again. And having the islands oldest ice cream parlor (Muller's) right across the street is not to be beat! :-)

A Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week-long stay in Chincoteague. Salty Dog's Lair was perfect! It was wonderful to be walking distance from the grocery store, the church, Mueller's ice cream and just a short drive to Assateague. There were plenty of bikes in the garage and the back porch was great for nightly dinners. I hope to stay here again!

Not what I expected

  • 1 of 5

This house is rather old. There are issues with roof leaking in several places when it rains. Water spots on ceilings, torn wallpaper, falling ceiling tiles in kitchen, plumbing in half bath, no outlet cover for ac unit in living room, and warped/soft floors are poorly maintained. Pictures on this sight do not show these issues. Called maintenance man and he said some of these issues have been a problem for awhile. Very disappointed.

Could not be happier. Great location and nice area of town.

  • 4 of 5

I thought the house was just what my wife and I were looking for. We loved being in town and within walking distance to just about everything that we go and do. The yard in the back was perfect for our dog and was bigger than I thought it would be. The Grill was very nice and also better than I thought it would be. We had no issues with the interior of the house and liked the open layout. We have been going to Chincoteague every summer for the last 10 years and this experience was one of the best. We will look to come back again this year or next summer and we will strongly recommend the property to anyone who asks.

Great Pet Friendly house

  • 4 of 5

Normally when we have stayed in Chincoteague, we have chosen a location on the water for the great views and boat/fishing access. This time we wanted to bring our two dogs, so we compromised on location. However, we were pleasantly surprised with the convenience of being in town. We could walk to the bay, restaurants, sugar bakers bakery, grocery store, ice cream parlor, flea market, art show, and fish market. There are even places to fish and launch a boat right close by. The house also had a propane grill and fenced in yard which was great for the dogs. Also, they had two kayaks and three functioning bicycles (two others had tire issues), which was great for touring the island. The island is not particularly pet friendly (no pets in Assateague or at Memorial Park, but we did find one nice park on Hallie Whealton Smith Drive. The house was nice and clean and functional. It is an old house and bathrooms were a tight squeeze but it had everything we needed. Kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies and even coffee filters and spices, so that was a big help.
