Two-story porches grace the front of this dynamic house Custom Designed for your comfort by Richard Vesely. You will enter a tiled, light filled two-and-a-half story high Entrance Hall with a Grand Staircase, and French Chandelier. Ascending the stairs, you'll be delighted along the way by the views to the water from three towering windows, or take the convenient windowed Elevator to the Living Level on the Upper Floor.
Arriving in the Great Room, You're sure to notice the ravishing Brazilian Tigerwood flooring, but your eye (and your heart) will quickly be drawn to what you're here for; the sweeping views of Sun-Diamonds dancing on the azure waters of Chincoteague Bay. Stunning, simply stunning!
The huge, high ceilinged Greatroom allows everyone to be together in comfort. While some gather around the large screen plasma TV on the Fireplace Wall, One or two may prepare drinks at the Carrara Marble beverage center.
The spacious tile-floored kitchen with it's Cherry Cabinets, and Granite Counter Tops is sure to be a popular spot ... Plenty of room to pitch-in for Cocktail Hour Canapes or prepare a delicious supper of Fresh Seafood purchased at the Town Dock.
Everyone will gravitate to the welcoming French Country Dining Table centered under the gentle glow of the Provincial Iron Chandelier. Notice, too, how the Dining Area floor of Mexican Travertine is set into the Brazilian Tigerwood.
While the house has two climate Control Systems, there will be days when you will want to open the French Doors leading from the Dining Area to the columned Gazebo-in-The-Sky ... Outdoor relaxation sublime high above the Sparkling Waters. Here, it's likely you will linger (probably everyday) while the sky turns indescribable shades of Magenta and Crimson-Orange as the timeless sun descends into the Welcoming Bay.
At the end of your day On Assateague Island's pristine Ocean Beach (or perhaps you climbed to the top of the Lighthouse?) you'll be ready to enjoy a great night's rest in Your Private Quarters on the Main Floor. Because there are two Richly Carpeted Master Suites, Each with king-size bed, Granite Top Make-Up vanity, Walk in closet, Full tiled Bathroom with Separate Tub and Walk in Tile Shower, perhaps there won't be any trouble over "Who-Gets-To-Sleep-Where".
A word about the bathrooms, One has a large Kohler Soaking Tub, One has a Kohler Whirlpool Tub for Two. Did we mention that each of these suites has a Private Balcony over the Water?
There's a room with Twin Beds, and an ensuite bath with waterview window in the Shower, also on the Mainfloor. Another spacious Kingsize Waterview Bedroom with an attached bath is on the Great Room Level.
Up an intriguing Spiral Stair from the Great Room level is the Tower-Hide-Away with Two Additional twin beds, just right for the young, and the young-at-heart. (Tower shares bath on Great Room Level).
On the Ground Level there's an Elevator Entrance handy for handling luggage and bringing in the groceries. And the elevator makes all floors Handicapped Accessible. Also on the ground level you'll find a shaded patio with picnic table and Weber Charcoal Grill for larger Cook-Outs (There is a Gas Grill on the Gazebo upstairs, But we still love the Real Charcoal Flavor.)
There's more, But come and discover the rest of the pleasures yourself. ENJOY!!!!!!...Read more

It is always nice to go to a vacation spot after reading reviews and find that no one exaggerated one little bit! Our first experience was walking into the living room space at sunset and feeling as if we were in the midst of a postcard...the view was amazing. The home itself, from the high-end finishes and furnishings to the more-than-adequate parking space was wonderful. From the owner to the management company, everyone was available and helpful. What a great time my family (ages 2 to 72) had for our first visit to beautiful Chincoteague Island. We will be back!

We had a great time visiting in November. It was the perfect weekend getaway. The house was absolutely gorgeous, and the house sits a couple feet from the water. The natural light throughout the home and the fireplace were just extra perks. We will definitely book this house again!

Again, this wonderful home exceeded our expectations. From 94 to 61 years young, we all enjoyed bird watching over breakfast and dinner - we never even went out to eat because we might miss something. And the kitchen is so well supplied, gourmet meal were easy to prepare. A bald eagle from the Refuge did join us for lunch our last day, a loon made daily morning swims right up the canal and all types of heron were found most mornings at the waters edge of the canal. We took advantage of the ground level room to store our bikes this year - only 2.5 easy and safe miles to the Refuge. The elevator was wonderful, not just for those with knee problems, but to bring in groceries and our bags. This year we extended our stay to 5 days, and we could have easily enjoyed 5 more, the home is so wonderfully furnished (comfortable beds, welcoming livingroom & fireplace, great bathrooms, clean and private).
We're so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Our repeat guests are the BEST and we really do appreciate you choosing to stay with us. Thank you and we hope to see you again next year.

I would recommend this rental property to everyone. Great place for all ages! Lots of room for a large family. The bedroom suites are comfortable and provide guests with a place for quiet solitude when they need it. The living room and dining room allow plenty of room for family gatherings. The view of the water and the sunsets is gorgeous. Great neighborhood for early morning walks. The "gazebo in the sky" is a great place to spend early mornings sipping coffee and reading a book while you watch the boats go by. The furnishings are exquisite. Not your typical beach house. It is a short drive to everything (the beach, restaurants, shops, ice cream parlor). The property is clean and well-maintained and the owner is very helpful. Book your stay now!
So glad you all had a good time here on the island and staying at The Moorings North. We too think it's the perfect location and you just can't beat the sunset views. Please make your plans to come back again soon.

The Moorings was a great place to stay while visiting Chincoteague. There was plenty of room for eight non-couple adults, with a great open concept area for all to enjoy together, catching up. Both the realty company and the owner were very pleasant. I would highly recommend this place.
We're so happy that you and your family enjoy The Moorings North of Chincoteague Island. We're looking forward to having you all back again next year. What a great tradition you've started!
“An Ideal "Mooring" (Comfortable Elegance with a "killer view")”
Left on 06/09/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | LoisReviewed Jun 9, 2011Stayed May 2011
The Moorings North was the ideal vacation spot for my family's ( 5 sisters plus 2 nieces) biennial "girls' vacation." The comfortably elegant style, decor and perfect location on the water of Chincoteague Bay more than lived up to the description and photos on the website. The modern, well-equipped kitchen, luxurious suites and the four beautifully appointed baths were appreciated by our group of seven "mature" women...to say nothing of the (easy to use) elevator to bring up (too much) luggage, food and drink! While we enjoyed exploring the area - antiquing, walking the Ocean City boardwalk, hiking the local trails, viewing the islands from the water on a "Daisey cruise", shopping on Main Street, savoring the local seafood at Bill's or The Village, touring assateague Island on the Chincoteague Natural History Museum wildlife tour (with its many photo ops of the famous ponies "up close and personal") and even climbing the asseteague Light... when it was time to leave we all wished we had spent more time at Moorings North on our own "private" decks or in the "gazebo in the sky." This is our eighth "girls vacation" and we have rented in various spots in Maine, Cape Cod and Outer Banks and have loved the houses we found; none, however, had a better location and most were not as beautiful and comfortable as Moorings North. We like to explore different areas so we may not be back to Chincoteague Island soon; however, if ever we do I will not have to waste any time searching for the ideal spot!
We're so happy you all had an enjoyable time here on our little island, and especially pleased that you enjoyed staying at The Moorings North of Chincoteague Island, Virginia. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and please help us spread the word by telling your friends and family.
