Enjoy our 300 ft of recreational oceanfront for picnics, sunbathing, swimming, deep-water boating, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing, sailing, fishing, clamming, beachcombing, & family fun...a picturesque and relaxing seascape of grassy dunes with picnic table, drifting sailboats & onshore dinghies, tidal flats with shore grasses, miles of private-like coastline for walking, magnificent sunrises, & unparalleled 180 degree views of Chatham Harbor, the sand dunes of Natl Seashore's Outer Beach, & the mighty Atlantic! ''Shore Acres'' is so sprawling it encompasses BOTH sides of a residential road in a prestigious neighborhood. Our estate house, with ocean views & 2.4 acres of totally private backyard, gardens, greenhouse, beautiful landscaping & child-protected pond, is on one side; our 300ft of estate oceanfront, with 2.6 acres of meadow, sandy dunes, salty air, beach grass, rosa rugosa blooms & breathtaking views, is directly across from the house. Unsurpassed beauty & ambiance. It is a leisurely, *LEVEL* walk for all ages from the house on our private grassy footpath to our expansive oceanfront (no steep slopes, no stairs). No need to pack the car with everything & are there!

When you do venture forth, as an added bonus, ''Feel the Pulse of Chatham!!''...a less-than-a-mile walk, run, or bike ride to ''not-to-be-missed'' Chatham Center. Chatham's historic & vibrant downtown, unmatched on Cape Cod, is renowned as a mecca for eclectic shops, award-winning restaurants, galleries, festivals, 5-Star playground, beautiful ocean beaches (5 are located 1/2 to 1-1/2 miles from the house, including renowned Lighthouse Beach) & famous band concerts. Books, movies, magazines, poets, artists, & awards all confirm there is no other place quite like Chatham...anywhere.

The house itself is fabulous, a rambling 6000+ square feet, quintessential classic Cape Cod, beautifully restored, gracious & upscale, designer-decorated, wonderfully light, bright, fresh & airy, with a delightful contemporary-classic decor. There are 7+ bedrooms (2 up, 5 down), with flexible bedroom arrangements, including 6 queens (5 master suites, depending upon your needs), 5 full baths (2 up, 3 down); a first-floor great room with living room, dining room and its own modern kitchen; a fabulous second eat-in gourmet main kitchen with Viking commercial natural gas range, Subzero refrigerator, granite countertops & a full complement of all the essentials for the modern chef; a butler's pantry/wet bar, connected to a separate large formal dining room for 12 or more; a large living room with fireplace; a library (may be used as a bedroom); a sleeping porch; 3 fireplaces; 2 decks; 2 laundry rooms; mudroom, etc, etc. The layout uniquely offers groups of 6-20 (no bunk beds, no trundles, no cots) the opportunity for both togetherness & privacy. This is a big house with two kitchens, two laundries, four common areas, etc., designed for multiple families & privacy!

For your enjoyment of this special property, we provide for a crowd: outdoor chaise lounge chairs, adirondack chairs, lawn chairs, beach chairs, beach mats, beach umbrellas, outdoor propane lobster cookers, coolers, picnic tables, hammock, swing, beach toys, kayaks, fishing poles, clamming gear (we have fabulous clam beds!); & information for easy delivery to this property of rental bicycles, boats, baby gear, yard games, etc; & information on obtaining clamming permits (no permit required for ocean fishing from our shoreline), area public beaches & attractions, walk-in tennis etc. at nearby Chatham Bars Inn, private chefs, sailing lessons, etc...Your own resort! Plus, since Chatham is located right at the midpoint ''elbow'' of 70 mile long Cape Cod, halfway between Falmouth & Provincetown, it is the perfect launching point for endless Cape Cod explorations.

This is a beautiful off-season site for family gatherings, families & friends, getaways, celebrations, executive, retreats, multi generational wedding family lodging, wedding lodging/reunion combos etc.

Top-Quality Rental.

Amazing Experience for All

My family recently rented this house for a weekend celebration. We arrived to find the house in perfect condition, including freshly laundered linens (sheets, towels, etc.) for all of us. We had fun choosing beds from the enormous array of selections and were pleased with the overall layout of the house. The beach also served us well for eating, playing, and socializing. The kayaks were an added bonus that we really enjoyed. The owners were also very respectful, organized, and easy to work with. My family cannot wait to return again next year! show more show less

Terrific Large Property!

This is a terrific house for a large, diverse group (we had 18 people at one time) and three generations. We had plenty of room for all of us, and everyone was comfortable - from grandpa to the 9 month old grand baby. The kids loved the yard, the beach and the warm days with brisk nights by the firepit. A wonderful family vacation for all of us!

Online Guest Review: Our group of twelve stayed for a week and the house was so large we never felt crowded, even though we spent most of the first few days inside due to less-than-ideal weather conditions. The house is more like two separate houses connected by a hallway/bedroom with two twin beds that works as a perfect napping area or, in our case, a bedroom for ten and twelve year old girls. The house is surprisingly soundproof, and we all got plenty of uninterrupted sleep.

The short walk to the beach was one of my favorite parts of the property -- a peaceful piece of land groomed just enough to make you feel like you could have stumbled upon this clearing during a long hike through the woods.

We had a great week and enjoyed kayaking, biking, a dinner at the Chatham Bars Inn, lobster rolls from the Chatham Pier Fish Market, shopping in Chatham Center, visiting Ridgevale Beach (great for families), completing numerous jigsaw puzzles, etc.

Thanks for a memorable vacation!

Online Guest Review: We couldn't ask for more! Here are some of the highlights of our stay: Low tide at our beach, showing the kids how to clam for our dinner. Walks along the shore to the Fish Pier to see the seals and to bring back the freshest lobster and fish n chips. Evening surfcasting and family campfires at our oceanfront under the stars. Endless kayaking, swimming, and boogie-boarding. Walks from our beach to Chatham Bars Inn for cocktails. And, most importantly, a fabulous Cape Cod estate, very classy, with perfect décor, boundless amenities, very clean and welcoming! Everything suited our adventurous family of 13 adults and 6 kids just perfectly! show more show less

Online Guest Review: We were so fortunate to find this beautiful property! A group of us rented it as the home base for our son's wedding. We had relatives come from all over the country and it was nice to have everyone able to stay at the same place - so much space inside & out! The wedding and festivities were held at a resort, absolutely beautiful, and, equally memorable, was the family time afterward to kick back and just enjoy each other's company. Most of our group had never before set foot on Cape Cod. What an amazing place! Immaculate property, great beach, short walk to historic Chatham center. A treasure! We are determined to come up with whatever excuse we can to get ourselves back there! show more show less

Online Guest Review: Wonderful Memories for Our Family! We really enjoyed our stay in Chatham.....the house was perfect for our Brady Bunch... Everything we needed was there, including lobster crackers and picks, and we lacked for nothing.... The best part was that we have 4 adult children with spouses and grandchildren and everyone had their own space..... we even had a "media center" in the large family room where everyone could hook up their ipods, iphones, computers, etc...and work from the Cape. We enjoyed the kayaks and found the location just perfect! show more show less

Online Guest Review: Large Chatham Home. We recently returned from this lovely and well appointed home from a 3 day weekend celebrating our 50th birthdays with 6 other couples. The house is "sprawling" with every amenity you could ask for. There was plenty of room for us to gather and share many laughs and good times. There are 2 kitchens, fully stocked which made preparing food for all of us very easy. The house was very clean, plenty of towels were provided for bathing and the beds (many) were comfortable. The back yard is very large, great for back yard games for children or large families with plenty of seating. 2 grills for out door cooking and 2 picnic tables also. The hammock on a sunny day should not be missed! The ocean and beach are directly across the street and while it was too cool for us to sit and spend time, we all were able to walk the beach.

The downtown of Chatham is within walking distance and also the fish pier.

Margaret was very easy and efficient to deal with and kept in touch via email as needed and available by phone 24/7.

This house is perfect for large groups or a few families to share. You will not be disappointed!

Online Guest Review: Seacoast Charm!!! Our family reunion took place in this wonderful house and I must was great! Enough room for the elders to take refuge from the children AND large enough gathering rooms for everyone to be together. The house was clean and stocked with linens when we arrived. The outdoor shower (with warm water no less) was fantastic after beach days. The garden was very private, and while the adults grilled dinner, the kids could play wiffle ball without disturbing anyone. We also enjoyed kayaking, crabbing and starfish seeking at the beach. The Lighthouse beach nearby was just amazing with seals gathering at the point of the beach and waves for the kids to play in! This house has a wonderful location, near town and beaches. We had a great time here and created many happy memories for our relatives from Europe and the states! show more show less
