Miss Molly's Review

This unassuming 1886 Victorian inn claims fame as the temporary home of author Marguerite Henry, who wrote Misty of Chincoteague. Here, in 1946, she spent two of her six weeks in Chincoteague preparing the background for her renowned children's novel. Miss Molly, the daughter of the home's builder, spent most of her life here. Guests have their pick of five bay-front porches loaded with comfy rocking chairs, and traditional English high tea is served every afternoon (for an additional fee).
