Description

Description

This bow roof cottage has the distinction of being one of very few houses built this close to the water. There is a small beach in front of the house, especially on an ebbing tide. The house would be considered small by today's standards, therefore the rooms are small, but it is clean and attractive and comfortable.

Inside, there is a living room with a bay window overlooking the Oyster River. There is a fully equipped kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, a small TV room, a bathroom and three bedrooms. After a wonderful day at the beach, have a refreshment and toast marshmallows at the Fire Pit close to the water. There are two bedrooms on the second floor: one bedroom with a full bed and another bedroom with two twin beds. On the first floor, there is one bedroom with a full bed and bathroom with a walk-in shower.

This home abuts the Oyster River Boatyard, where one can rent a boat, or bring your own boat and rent a mooring. Several hundred yards up the river at the historic Oyster Shacks, kayaks, paddle boards and boats are available to rent from John at The Chatham Kayak Co., and steps away freshly harvested oysters from this clean river can be purchased right from the oyster harvesters themselves. They may even shuck them for you.

This property boasts a large lawn for playing games, a Weber grill and picnic table. On the shoreline out front is a stone lined fire pit, great for sitting on the sand and relaxing after a day of sailing, fishing, shopping, biking or walking the grounds of the National Seashore nearby high above the Atlantic, or exploring the beaches: an Atlantic Ocean beach, a Nantucket Sound beach, or Oyster Pond Beach, which is a children’s beach that offers swimming lessons.
The fire pit on the shoreline out front provides a venue for “Wednesday's Clam Bakes,” provided by a friend of mine, a Chatham native and shell fisherman who grew up on this river. A fee is required for food only. This same friend offers a sunset private boat tour up the River for a maximum of six passengers. A tip would be appreciated. One would pay a significant charge for commercially run tours. Owner will tutor children in Mathematics, Free!
Smoking out of doors is fine.

Owner provides bed linens, guests bring their own towels. And don’t forget your beach towels, fishing pole, clam rake and sunscreen.
The wall hangings you see are prints of 19th Century paintings.

About Rosalie Moretti

During my lifetime of teaching (mathematics), summers were always free. During those times, I traveled the entire U.S., Europe and Persia. When I was home,I seemed to have gravitated to the water. Swimming, sailing, surfing, even fishing were everyday events.

Most of my life I lived on or near the water, but never this close. My house, now, is nineteen feet from the wood seawall on the Oyster River in Chatham. Couldn't be happier.

What is special about this property?
The property is pure Cape Cod. It has not been suburbanized.

The scent of salt water is ever present. A soft south wind kicks up in the late afternoon (I guess to help sailors reach home in time for supper.)

Whenever there are storms or very high seas on the ocean, seabirds come into the Oyster River, a safe harbor. The birds, every single time land right in front of my bay window. One Christmas day, there were ninety three seabirds waiting to be counted. Why they choose this particular spot to seek shelter? Find out when you get here.

What is special about your town?
Chatham is a walking town. Park once, walk to restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, premier movies, art galleries, an old fashioned Ben Franklin, churches, consignment shops, an iconic candy store, women's fashions, antiques stores, a hardware store, a jewelry store,a shoe salon, an outdoor cafe, a labyrinth, a band stand, a park, a library, etc. All are top of the line.
