Key West Cottages Chincoteague Island, which is set at the water’s edge in Chincoteague Island, Virginia, is expanding from five to 38 pastel-colored tiny retreats.

Slated to open in August and September, the 33 new one- or two-bedroom cottages range from 376 to 661 square feet. Each has a full kitchen, tiled walk-in shower, coastal decor and a cozy covered porch with water views. Many of the decks are at the canal’s edge, making it easy to fish and crab from them.

The Key West vibe is carried through the cottage colors, decor and landscaping, and in music that’s piped through speakers that dot the property.

Perks include a private beach, pool, dock, outdoor firepit and tiki torches. Paddleboards, kayaks and bikes are available for no extra fee.

Chincoteague’s Main Street—lined with boutique shops, restaurants and popular food trucks (don’t miss Build Your Own Cookie)—is a short walk, and Assateague Island, home to the area’s famed wild ponies, is a short drive.

Cottage rates begin at $150. // Key West Cottages, 6125 Poplar St. W., Chincoteague Island, Virginia, 757-336-3700
