In early 1973, Donald and Martha Leonard installed the finishing touches in their grandest and most recent business venture – the state-of-the-art Refuge Motor Inn, nestled between loblolly pines just across the Assateague Channel from the Wildlife Refuge. This 40-room place of rest and refuge was founded on Martha’s southern hospitality that she cultivated in her hometown of Tuscaloosa, Alabama (Roll Tide!) and Don’s love of the Chincoteague Ponies that he had cared for since childhood — setting aside this small slice of Chincoteague not only for travellers seeking a home away from home, but also a pasture for his beloved ponies to meet guests from far and wide.


HotelSwaps is pleased to welcome The Refuge Inn as its newest member in USA.
