We love Chincoteague and usually stay bay side. This time we opted for The Refuge Inn. We were delighted with our stay. Great location. Common areas and nice. Rooms are beautifully appointed...very clean and beds were so comfy. This will be our first choice.

Needed a few days of rest and relaxation and the refuge was perfect. The staff was incredibly friendly and the accommodations clean and priced just right. The best part of the trip was feeding the ponies.

What a beautiful spot! Horses in the yard and such a beautiful property. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. We appreciated all the careful Covid precautions that were taken. If you are a bike rider there are bike racks and it’s the closest motel to the biking trails!

First time staying at this hotel and we will be coming back. Quaint and nestled among the trees. The bike rental shop was right next door. The staff was helpful with directions and suggestions for restaurants and things to do.
