My girlfriend and I spent the Fourth of July weekend there; we had the Attic room, which is on the third floor of the main house. (There are 3 houses.) The rooms on lower floors, however, are better equipped and furnished. The owners and staff are a delight and offered suggestions on what to do when the weather took a turn for the worse. (Be sure to consult the notebook in your room - it has helpful advice on places to eat and to visit.) As others have noted, the parlor (where snacks and games are) is a nice touch. Breakfast is very nice, but be sure to stroll the grounds to look at the whimsical sculptures or to relax in the hammock. The inn is convenient to Chincoteague and to Wallops Island.
