About Michelle Howard Waterfield

My name is Michelle Waterfield. My father, Mitchell Howard, Jr is the owner. I live on the mainland as does my father. I am a stay at home mom, and assist my dad in managing the rental. I am usually available to assist with basic needs regarding the home, and I am responsible for all of the bookings. My father is a self-employed carpenter who has owned this home since the mid 90s. We just recently opened it up as a vacation rental, and it is going well so far. My father is a native of the island, and I did a lot of growing up there as well. We are both pretty knowledgeable if you have questions or need suggestions.

Michelle Howard Waterfield purchased this house in 1990

Why Michelle Howard Waterfield chose Chincoteague Island

This home belonged to my great grandparents, so it is family owned. There are fond memories of chicken and dumpling Sunday dinners, childhood birthday parties, sitting in the front yard and my pop pop sitting out front under the willow tree next to his clam shack where he sold clams. The home is simple and traditional Chincoteague style. One of the best features of this home is close proximity to the Chincoteague Annual Pony Swim, we enjoy time with the family here every year for the special event!

What makes this house unique

The willow tree out front provides nice shad and there is a backyard sitting area with a very tiny deck but it is so nice for sitting out in the evenings. We enjoy grilling on the charcoal grill or eating sandwiches on the picnic table with the family. From the upstairs bedroom you can observe the Assateague lighthouse in the distance. You can faintly see the flickering light through the window in the evening.

Another benefit, is the very close proximity to memorial park: enjoy the public boat ramp, playground equipment, fishing dock, gazebo and picnic area.

Quaint Summer Cottage in Chincoteague

  • 4 of 5

This home was a great home away from home for our family Summer excursion to Chincoteague. Michelle was extremely easy to communicate with and the booking process was a breeze. Our kids appreciated the toys and Wii, and we appreciated having two floors of space. While the home was immaculately clean, the seasonal ant issue required us to take our trash out each night and and kept us from using the kitchen as much as we would have if there wasn't an issue.

Older charm

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time and felt very comfortable staying here. It is much more comfortable than staying at a motel. We had coffee on the front steps and neighbors and passer by people were friendly. There is an aqua farm in back and I almost went and asked them for a tour. There was outdoor furniture to sit in the evening and could almost see the lighthouse but we did see the light from it.

Super cute cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at this super cute little cottage. Perfect for our family of 4 (12 yr old and 18 month old). House was very clean and it was nice to have clean linens provided for our short stay it helped keep our packing light! Short 5 mile drive to Assateague National Seashore which is beautiful and lots of good restaurants and the island creamery nearby. Nice quiet stretch of road on the island. It was our first visit to Chincoteague and the property owner communicated very well and offered recommendations. One word of warning the ants on the island are very good at finding any opened boxes... so would recommend keeping everything in freezer or fridge! We look forward to coming down again sometime!
