About the Owner

Our retirement home is the perfect getaway. We purchased it when the children were young. It has been a great location to explore all areas of the Cape, as it is an easy access to main roads for traveling to other towns.

Quiet and Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! It is located near a popular bike trail, which we took advantage of. We wish we could have stayed longer. We plan on returning next year. The owners are great and are always available if you have any questions.

Quaint and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from Chatham. What a lovely place. Quiet, peaceful, and with all the amenities you need. The outdoor shower rocked! First time in Chatham and we enjoyed our stay, as well as discovering new places in and around the cape. Our hosts were great and were on point about everything we needed right at the cottage.

This was truly a great place to stay and we would highly recommend it.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! Not sure where to begin. The place was on a very quiet street so it was quite peaceful. It was really close to the bike trail so we were very happy we brought our bikes. There was a great ice cream place nearby too, that we loved. There is so much to do in Chatham. It really is a beautiful place. There are so many beaches to chose from....the sound beaches for the little ones, Atlantic, Pond, etc. So many to chose from. The house was perfect to go back to after a fun, but exhausting day at the beaches, baseball game, listening to bands play music in Harwich and Chatham was nice to go back to a place that was so quiet and away from it all. Loved the outside shower to get all of the sand off after a day at the beach....a definitely plus. Our week went by way too fast, we hope to stay for two weeks next time. We will definitely be coming back!! Thank you!!

It's hard to leave this place...

  • 5 of 5

This place was very nice. When my husband and I walked in the cottage, we were happily surprised! There's so much space, and the kitchen is beautiful and pleasant to work in. The living room is so comfortable and spacious. Everything on site is convenient. We could even walked to a beautiful river and explore nature with our 5-year-old. What was really great too is the tranquility in the neighborhood and the privacy. The location is nice, you can walk to one or two beaches and several of them are driving distance, not far away. We adored downtown Chatham, what a beautiful quaint little village. If you like to shop, that's the perfect place!

The owners are very nice and always ready to help. We’re going back next year for sure!

Thanks for everything!

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I rented this cottage for a week in June and it's a beautiful home. The kitchen and floors are newly renovated and the house & grounds are clean and well kept. Although it was just the two of us, four people could stay there comfortably. This house is in a quiet neighborhood, yet conveniently located to everything and anything you would like to do on vacation; including downtown Chatham, shopping, beaches, whale watching, etc. I would highly recommend renting this cottage to anyone. We enjoyed it so much we're already thinking about booking again next year!

Best Cape Cod vacation yet

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting on the Cape for a few years and this is our favorite cottage so far. We loved the quiet location and the large new living room filled with light right off a wonderful deck loaded with comfy outdoor furniture. We also appreciated the air conditioner in the master bedroom! We love to bike and the cottage is extremely close to the Cape Cod bike path. Our days were spent exploring the Chatham beaches and the Cape Cod National Seashore, catching up on summer reading, biking on the rail trail, and enjoying candlelit dinners on the private deck. Everything was spotless when we arrived and the owner was always available by cell phone to answer any questions we had (such as where to buy beach towels since we forgot to bring ours!) Beach chairs and beach umbrellas were provided as well as everything else except linens and towels. We highly recommend this property.
