Ever wonder what it feels like to truly experience a Vacation Destination as one who lives here? Let Waterman's Cottage show you how to live like a Local! This Historic Cottage, Circa 1920, has been fully restored to its original glory, without losing the quintessential charm you love. Enjoy the tastes of a bygone era, yet with the Modern Amenities you need. Located on South Main Street, directly in the path of the Annual Pony Parade, Waterman's Cottage offers you all of this, plus breathtaking Views of the Chincoteague Bay.
As you pull down the long driveway at Waterman's Cottage, you're taken in by the Natural Beauty surrounding this lovely home. From the White Picket Fence to the rich Red Roses that seem to bloom just for you, this is exactly what you were hoping it would be. This fabulous Cottage is perfect for a small family or several couples, and is laid out just perfectly for reconnecting with those who mean the most.
Upon entering through the Front Screened-in Porch, you know you'll be spending a lot of time here. What a great place to enjoy your morning coffee, or end the day with a cocktail while taking in our famous Chincoteague Sunset. The Cottage directly faces every Sunset - and we all know each and every one is so special. Waterman's Cottage has both a Living Room and a Family Room leaving more than enough room to spread out, yet still be together. The Family Room is tastefully furnished with a Shabby Chic Flair and so many special touches, like Theater Chairs that came from the Historic Island Theatre and Painted Wood Floors. Relax in the comfortable furniture after a fun-filled day on the Beach or exploring our Island, and enjoy the Central AC, Free WiFi, and Flat Screen Satellite TV. Also on this floor is a Full Bathroom with Tub/Shower Combo, and Full Size Washer and Dryer.
Just off the Family Room is the spacious Eat-in Kitchen, well-stocked with all you need to make mealtime a sea breeze. You'll love the Pale Blue Walls and original Knotty Pine Hardwood Floors. There is plenty of seating at the Dining Table, or grab a quick bite at the Breakfast Island before hitting the Beach. A Wall of Windows, Wood-Burning Stove, and some comfy Wicker Furniture make this a wonderful Nook to spend time together. The Owners have thoughtfully provided all you need to prepare everything from big family breakfasts to Fresh Local Chincoteague Seafood. There is even a Charcoal Grill for the Fresh Catch of the Day, which hopefully you caught!
On the other side of the Family Room are breathtaking French Doors leading to the Living Room with Whimsically Painted Walls and Knotty Pine Hardwood Floors. There is also a Queen Futon that sleeps 2, and the French Doors will lend some privacy. Wandering up the stairs, you will find the Bedrooms and more. The Master Bedroom has a Queen Bed, and is romantically decorated with touches of Victorian Charm and has stunning Bay Views. A comfy Chaise Lounge facing the water is a wonderful place to catch the sunrise before anyone else is stirring. Bedroom 2 has 2 Twins, and is a great room for the kids. At the top of the Landing is an adorable Sitting Area with Sunset Pink Walls and another relaxing Chaise - a great place to sneak away to with a good book! There is also a Half Bath on this floor shared between the Bedrooms.
Waterman's Cottage is only 1 mile from the center of Town and a quick 10 minute drive to Assateague National Seashore. You will enjoy super easy access to everywhere you want to be on Chincoteague Island, including the Carnival Grounds, which is home to the Fireman's Carnival every weekend throughout the month of July. Whether you love Beachcombing, Surfing, Ponies, Shopping, Fishing, Boating, Exploring, or simply Relaxing, Waterman's Cottage is the perfect place to hang your hat during your time on our fabulous Island.

Waterman's Cottage may be new to Seaside Vacations, but has been loved by many
Guests in the past! Here are just a few of many wonderful reviews:
"Cozy, vintage cottage for a perfect week at the beach -
This adorable family-friendly cottage was home to my family of 3 for a week in August. There was plenty of room and we had every amenity we needed - including a well-furnished kitchen, central air, and cable and internet for entertainment. We enjoyed our coffee in the mornings to the view of Chincoteague Bay from the screened-in front porch. Fran and Elaine were so helpful! We'll be back!"
"Fantastic Family Getaway -This was our first trip to the island, and we loved it! The house was charming and perfect for our family of five. Clean, comfortable and accommodating is how I would describe it. We cooked almost the entire time, and the kitchen was nice to work in and well stocked. The owners are friendly & helpful. We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets from the porch each evening. While at Chincoteague, we enjoyed: renting bikes and cruising the trails, mini golf, fishing, shopping, a lunch at Famous Pizza, a dinner at the Island Diner ( both were very good) and of course the beautiful beach. We had a magnificent week and look forward to returning again!
"Watermans Cottage -
A Wonderful quaint relaxing cozy place. We Enjoyed it very much. Made good memories for each of us. The Beachy's"
"Charming beach home -Staying here felt like visiting a friend's house. It was thoughtfully and whimsically decorated, clean and comfy. My favorite features were the outdoor shower; the screened front porch; and the chaise upstairs, in the room between the two bedrooms, from which I could see a narrow view of water when I looked up from my book. I also appreciated that the owners were so responsive--we were clearly in good hands and it made the island seem like a friendly and functional place. Like most beach houses, it's little musty, but we didn't notice after about a minute inside. The house is also a 5-minute walk to Daisey's Island Cruises (Dock 1, where the smaller tour boats leave from), which was a great experience: low-key and blissful to be out on the water. As this was our first visit, we relied heavily on the binder with recommended restaurants, menus, and information about the island. We had a lovely stay!"
