Description

Description

Step back in time to Old Cape Cod. The Cape that you remember can still be found at our little cottage, “Overlook,” on Chatharbor Lane. Simplicity is the key to relaxation. This cottage is easy to live in and has just what you want in a summer vacation house, and a view that will take your breath away! The Cockle Cove property is located directly on Nantucket sound, five miles from Chatham's fine shopping district. If you like quiet, this is the place for you. If you like swimming, kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, kite-boarding (Forest Beach, an adjacent beach, is one of the top windsurfing and kite boarding spots on the Cape), or just relaxing, you will love this beach.

The cottage has an updated kitchen, new beds, windows, renovated small bathroom, flat TV, and deck, all within the last six years. Though the beach is only 300 feet from the back door, the beach is accessed by walking to Cockle Cove Beach, a distance of nine hundred feet. This beach stretches from Forest Beach to Ridgevale Beach with plenty of space to spread out. This is a pet free home. There are window mounted air conditioners, but they are seldom used because the ocean breeze does the job nicely. With Sun, Sand and surf... As well as WIFI, Cable, this cottage has all that you need!

The house is simple, as a beach house should be. Unlike many over-modernized homes, this cottage retains the character that summers at the Cape used to have. Everything is on one level. The floors are wood, and the windows offer the ocean breeze. Cable Television and a DVD player are provided. The kitchen has an electric stove and should please most chefs. The fireplace is suitable for small fires. A few Duraflame logs are in the closet for your enjoyment. There is a queen size bed and two single. The couch is actually a queen size pullout sofa bed that can used for extra guests in a pinch. Occupancy is limited to six people, but four is a more comfortable number. The neighbors are the Landlords. There is very little yard but with nearly a mile of beach at hand, there is more than enough room for tossing a frisbee. Walking in the fragile grassy marsh is not allowed as your footprints will last a decade. There is no smoking inside of the building.

This little cottage is nestled by a grassy marsh facing Nantucket Sound. Its mature plantings offer great privacy. It is a small neighborhood composed of a few seasonal and year-round residents. The neighboring public Cockle Cove Beach is gated, and admission is charged to those who choose to drive there, but it is only a few hundred yards from your door, so there is no fee charged (to pedestrians or cyclists). The stretch of beach between creeks is about 4000 feet long. The water is warm in the summer and shallow for a great distance. The beach is machine groomed regularly in the summer to rake up seaweed on the shore, leaving a nice sandy beach. Because the sound is protected by the distant Monomoy Island, there is usually no dangerous surf or current, as there is on Lighthouse beach. Cockle Cove is a great place to swim, wade or for beachcombing.

Great getaway!
5 of 5 from Homeaway
This little cottage is easy to fall in love with - out the back door is a short stretch of flat marsh (with countless birds, animals and a lovely breeze) and beyond is the ocean. You can hear the lapping tide and see the sailboats as you sit on the deck and have your morning coffee. The beach is just a short walk and is absolutely lovely! Be sure to check out low tide, when you can walk out really far and still stay only up to your knees, and the tidal pools are filled with lots of critters.
The house has everything you need, including the charm of the Cape as we hear it once was (this was our first time!). Working with Steve, the owner, was easy and he's quite nice. We will be back for sure! Don't forget to try the seafood pie at the nearby pie shop, and their cinnamon buns! :)

View alone is worth the stay.

The yellow cottage is a nature lovers paradise, views of both the ocean and the marsh(which is teeming with wild life). The cottage was as described, clean and well supplied, just bring your bedding. Location was close to restaurants and attractions including a short walk to Cockle Cove beach. Would recommend to family and friends.

Best stay in Chatham in over 30 years!!!
5 of 5 from Homeaway
We had an amazing vacation and loved our stay in the yellow cottage. Perfect for my family of 4 and a view of the Ocean to die for. The wildlife is wonderful: heron,deer,rabbits, and a pack of coyotes and their pups shared the property with us for a true South Chatham experience. I have been going to the Cockle Cove area almost every year since 1982 and this was by far my best experience. Up to date cottage just seconds from the beach. I would highly recommend if you want a true Cape Cod experience and truly relax. show more show less

Can't wait to go back!

5 of 5 from Homeaway

This was our second time staying at the little yellow cottage and certainly won't be our last! The size is perfect for my husband and I and our two young daughters and the location is just perfect. The walk to the beach is short and pleasant and the view from the back deck is just gorgeous! We enjoyed watching a mother coyote and her two pups frolicking in the marsh behind the cottage a few mornings which was a special treat along with other wildlife and countless birds. The beds were comfortable and the cottage is outfitted with absolutely everything we needed. Chatham is the perfect location for a family with young ones as there is a wonderful playground and ball field downtown along with fun shops and restaurants. Can't wait to go back!

Perfect, quiet place on the Cape with great views

5 of 5 from Homeaway

The cottage is perfect for me. The first time I saw it, I was so pleased because it was exactly like the online posting's description. I wanted a quiet, private place that would make me feel like I was living there, not just vacationing. It has just the right amount of space and amenities. It is always clean (love the new bathroom remodel), the view is spectacular (sitting on the back deck is so relaxing) and it is very easy to get to. A great location from which to explore the rest of the Cape. Steve and Barb are so nice and allow you the peace you look forward to when getting away from it all. I have been there 5 times in 2 years and will be returning as long as they will have me. I love referring to it as "my cottage" and HIGHLY recommend it!

My aunt and I have rented this little piece of heaven for three years in a row in the early days of May, and I'm afraid we do feel quite attached to it now. There's plenty of space for us since we each have our own room (but it would be fine for four adults and still doable for six friends). My aunt is in her 70's, so the single-floor layout is as important as the quiet neighborhood location.
And we have all the conveniences of home: a well-appointed kitchen, comfy furnishings, laundry, TV, books, games, a fireplace, and more. Of course the deck and view (to echo other reviewers) are bonus features that make this cottage a very special place. We love to stroll on the beach or pop into town for treats and shopping, but the location in Chatham is also convenient for exploring up or down the coast without making it a really long day. Steve (the owner) is friendly, accessible and helpful but rarely seen otherwise, so it feels like our own private cottage on The Cape, even if it's only for a few days a year.

I am a Chatham Resident and local business-man. My Wife, Daughter and I are enjoying our twentieth year in town.

What is special about this property?
Really... what a nice spot. A wide view of Nantucket Sound, a sunny deck with a South-West breeze, handy fridge... what's not to like?

What is special about your town?
Chatham is the place to be! Home to titans of industry, reclusive stars and working fellows like myself that want to live in my favorite place!
