Refuge Inn was wonderful for many reasons, but probably the biggest was the fact that the indoor pool was heated to a comfortable level around 88!

We spent another Spring Break at the Refuge Inn and loved it. The rooms were clean, nicely decorated, and large enough for a cot. There was no problem with getting connecting rooms. I have always loved the balconies, ours overlooked the ponies. The breakfast was tasty and plentiful. We must have hit breakfast at rush hour because the area felt...

Comfortable bed, excellent breakfast.Pool, hot tub. Good location. Very close to Assateague Island. You could actually walk over if you enjoy walking. We even got to see some wild ponies! April was a great month to visit but the mosquitoes were plenty!
