Over the years my wife and I have stayed many places on the Island and the Lighthouse Inn is at the top of the list. The inn keeper team of Chris and Lea are the most genuinely friendly and caring tandem you could meet. Their attention to detail and the comforts of your stay are second to none. Being a...

Lea and Christopher, the owners, introduced themselves as "the inn keepers" the moment we entered the office to register. They told us they were always available if we needed anything or had any problems. Chris told us if one of them was not in the office, they could be reached by cellphone any hour, day or night. We had brought...

Not someplace we would normally stay but it came highly recommended by a good friend. I am so glad we listened! Chris was very informative when we checked in, telling us the little secrets of the island and where to go. We had a light going out and he was there in no time to fix it. It was very...

This is one of the few pet friendly hotels on the island. There were milk bones in the room for Sona. The inn keepers gave us a great road map of the town. Our room was clean, simple and the bed was comfy. We will definitely stay there on our next trip.

When we first pulled up to the small motel style Inn we were a little hesitant at first. But the second you walk up to check in and you are greeted by the extremely friendly and always helpful staff you know you made the right choice. The couple that was managing the Lighthouse Inn did an excellent job making sure...

My daughter and I stayed here on a little getaway. We loved our visit! It was quaint and an excellent location. The innkeeper were kind and were eager for us to enjoy our stay in Chincoteague. The decor is older but we liked the nostalgic vibe.

It isn't much to look at as you drive by -- it's a motel. BUT, it is very clean, customer-oriented, conveniently-located, family-run. We were very pleased with the room and the service. Loved the screened porch with grill and tables. Fairly priced.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while he was interviewing for a job at Wallops Flight Facility. It was very nice. The Innkeepers were very nice and helpful. The room was clean and maintained. We enjoyed our stay and will hopefully be back again.

Not only do they allow pets they welcome them. Pets are our family members and I didn't mind leaving our well behaved little dog in the room. I knew he would be safe. Rooms are spotless.They really care about your needs and go out of their way to help. Fridge in our room in working order and clean. Can't wait...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come to enjoy a relaxing stay at the historic Lighthouse Inn! Our location is absolutely perfect! We're located right in the heart of the island, just a short walk to shopping, dining, and those fabulous local artist studios on Main Street and Maddox Boulevard. It's only a very short drive to the National Park and the Wildlife Refuge where you will find a beautiful beach and the famous wild Chincoteague ponies. The Lighthouse Inn offers comfortable rooms in a family friendly atmosphere. ... more   less
