About the property

2 Bedroom Half-Acre Water Views

Yellow Cottage, located 1.7 miles from historic downtown, is ideal for one or two couples or small family; max. occupancy 5 including infants and toddlers. Please confirm "with (or without) pets" and share a bit about yourself and guests when making an inquiry or reservation.

Flowering bushes, rushes, and pine trees surround this spacious lot that overlooks the salt marshes and ponds on the quiet northern end of Chincoteague Island. Herons, egrets, geese, and mallards are a daily sight, and the Salt Marsh Lane/Wildcat Road trail is just up the road. We are 4 miles from Assateague Island, the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, and the Assateague National Seashore. Vehicle entry fee required but no pets allowed. The Refuge features a spectacular variety of migratory birds, plants, and the famous wild Chincoteague ponies. Hiking and biking the miles of nature trails is an excellent way to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the island. The beautiful seashore features the only public beach on the islands.
