“A great trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2007

Our four day stay at the Watson House was wonderful. Bob and Carole are congenial and helpful hosts. Carole prepares a
delicious and bountiful breakfast each morning. A fruit course, a hot entree with side dishes, a baked treat, plus homemade biscuits and orange juice . Coffee is available at 7:15. Biscotti and Tea are set in the parlour during the day. Each room has
a mini fridge for water, etc.
Bob will recommend restaurants ,boat tours and answer any
questions you might have. He also made reservations for all the guests at the popular eating places( Bills was the best )which was a time saver.
The Inn is very friendly, everyone congregated on the front porch ,talking about the fun experiences of the day. The lack of television was actually a nice change.
Beach chairs. towels and bikes(we brought our own bikes) were provided by the inn.
The location on Main Street made walking to shops and restaurants convenient. We were there for the Art Stroll on Sat. Night. Many of the Galleries and Shops provide wine ,cheese, and sweets, and stay open until 10:00pm.
Assateague Island was so pretty and unspoiled. It is connected to Chincoteague by a short bridge which is just a short bike or a 3 minute car ride.away.The trails, the beach area( there are showers, changing rooms and portajohns ) and the refuge are all enjoyable. The ponies were visible from the road,so everyone was snapping photos.
We definitely plan to return to the Watson House and to Chincoteague Island.
