With a sunny, fall season now upon us, why not take a short vacation on Cape Cod, at the charming Antique Chatham Farmhouse, in the historical town of Chatham, Massachusetts! This farmhouse has all the charm and character of an 1800's house, but with the amenities of today.

The Chatham Antique Farmhouse is a 1-floor/1-bedroom that sleeps 4 people. The house heating system will be operational (very few houses have heat in October).

Great locations nearby the house include a 5 minute walk (3/10 mile) to our neighborhood private, rock-free, sandy ocean beach, a 10 minute walk to the Cape Cod bike path, charter fishing, and golf!

The house is located on one acre with a sheltered private yard and grounds with extensive lawn/yard that is away from roads and ideal for children (the majority of the outdoor recreation area is behind the house). The yard has a hammock, swings, horseshoes, b-ball, v-ball, huge climbing trees, and more.

The Chatham Old Colony spur line of Cape Cod Bike Rail Trail is just 1/2 mi from the house (on Morton St) Short drive to popular downtown Chatham shopping, restaurants, seal watching, activities, golfing, and much more!

We enjoyed the accommodations very much and they were right in line with the description. This property is a perfect place to share quality time with family and friends. With so many options for the kids it allows for better visits with friends and loved ones. Overall we all enjoyed this tremendously and believe we will be back.

Thanks, Michael!

Thanks again for allowing us to stay at your place...has been just what the doctor ordered. It was a fantastic week, and we all fell in love with the house by the end of the week. It seemed like every time we needed something, it was there. All of the touches for kids were wonderful and the yard is amazing. The house was clean, and we did watch the TV. I also thought that you did a great job communicating - that was definitely a plus.

All the best,

Michael,

I just wanted to say that we had a great stay at your summer vacation home. It was the perfect size for our family. Couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather! The kids had a ball and there was never a moment where there was a want of things to do. I'm sure we talk again.

Sincerely,

Janet and Dick

Hi Michael,

We had a great time, the house was perfect for us with our 3 grandchildren (8,5 &4). The parents (2 couples) loved it. The kids had lots to do with all the play features you have in and out of the house. The two living-rooms were a plus, since the kids could be in one watching either a video or TV. The eating area inside and out was perfect for all of us and that hammock and the tree to sit under with continuous cool breezes was great. We liked that we could walk or bike to the beach. We got a week's pass to Harwich so we could go to Red River and park the car with all the gear and the others could bike.

The house was very clean and picked up. Also the yard.

We watched your TV and we all used our tablets, (the kids watched their Netflix streaming movies on them).

Thanks again, we can't wait to come back next summer, it was perfect for us. In fact no one wanted to go home.

In an effort to improve the house, I'd greatly appreciate your comments on:

The state of cleanliness when you arrived?

LMR>
-Good. I didn’t feel the need to break out the bleach bottle or vacuum before settling in (which says a lot)!

>>>

MG>
What were the things that you liked the best?

LMR>
- Indoor and outdoor space. Nice to find a house that can comfortably accommodate us all! The kitchen is very spacious. We spent a lot of time gathered around the large patio and kitchen tables as well as in the family room(s). The home office is an excellent feature for those that need to have a private work space.
-In-house washer & dryer = no visits to the Laundromat!
-Loved the outdoor shower. It was large, clean and critter free!
-The boys enjoyed having the basketball goal in the driveway.
-Proximity to the beach.Not a bad walk...!

>>>

MG>
Did you watch any TV, or did you just watch DVD's and use the internet?

LMR> I don’t think we watched any TV. We brought a game console system for the kids. I brought a bunch of DVD’s—but we didn’t watch those either. Might have been different if we had had bad weather—but the weather was nice all week so our days were spent outside and we played “old fashioned” games each night after dinner with the kids.

LMR> We very much enjoyed our stay at the farm house and will definitely consider returning!

We had a wonderful family vacation! Your house is large enough that we can spread out (and not get in each other's way...as family can do :) . The weather was perfect and there was ample room for outdoor activities.

We ate almost all of our meals outside and loved the tables and chairs.
My favorite part of the house is the kitchen. It's large enough for a few people to help when preparing meals and it's fully stocked with anything we'd ever need. The gas stove is great as is the large refrigerator.

There is no doubt that having 2 living rooms with 2 TV's makes life easier with the kids. The outside shower is very comfortable to use and was preferred by almost everyone. We all appreciated the many magazines available. We had planned on playing a few games, but the Kan Jam game we brought was addictive so the group usually retreated to the yard to play.

So thank you for providing such a pleasant place for a family vacation. I don't know when the family will be able to find the same week on their calendars in the future, but if they can you will certainly be hearing from us.

Hello Michael,

My family, my parents and my brother's family all had a wonderful time at your house! It is very clean and well equipped. The house feels like a home. It's very warm and comfortable. And even with all the rain, we managed to still have fun. Without all the games, books and DVD movies you have provided for adults and kids, we would have all been climbing up the walls! We are already talking about returning next Septembrr, before the kids grow into school age and prevent our fall vacations. Thanks!

Hi Michael,

We had a good time! (The 2 person bike and ping pong table was a favorite!) Everything that was there was good. And it wasn't too far from everything but just far enough that it was peaceful. I will keep it in mind that you rent in the spring and fall. It would be nice to get away for a few days during those seasons. Thank you for renting the house to us.
