Description

Ship’s Light has looked down Cross Street to Chatham Village Center for more than 180 years. Built and occupied by some of Chatham’s most eminent residents since 1825, it was converted to four housekeeping apartments for summer visitors circa 1945. Lovingly restored by long-time current owners, this gracious antique home offers modern comfort and convenience with the character and charm of a bygone era.

The Gifford Buck apartment--the largest of the four apartments--is a comfortable first-floor, 5-room, 2 bedroom, 2 bath gem. Airy and light, the large living room with a working fireplace and wide-screen TV occupies the center of the house. The dining room seats 8 and connects to a charming full-sized kitchen with a small breakfast table--or eat and relax on the quiet back porch or side yard with picnic tables and area seating. Two air conditioned bedrooms--one with a queen-sized bed and one with two twins--and two full baths make this apartment perfect for a family. One of the bathrooms also includes a washing machine and dryer. The charm of the apartment is further enhanced by the warm glow of beautifully refinished, wide pine, antique floors and wainscoting. Other amenities include cable TV, Internet, and a BBQ grill, and linens are provided.

Centrally located within a short walking distance of excellent Chatham dining, shopping, movies and band concerts, the house is three blocks from the town saltwater beach on Oyster Pond and one mile from Coast Guard Beach, a great stretch of Atlantic Ocean and dunes. Many individuals, couples, and extended families consider Ship’s Light their vacation home. We invite you to join them in making your vacation something special.

The Gifford-Buck apartment at Ship’s Light is rented with a three night minimum during the summer season and with a two night minimum in the shoulder and off-seasons. Other units with unique features are also available and the whole house can be rented as a 5-to-6 bedroom home for family gatherings. Contact the owner for details.

About Allison

The Coleman family has owned and loved Ship's Light since the mid-1970s. Like several owners before her, Lena Coleman lived at Ship’s Light year-round and rented its apartments to summer visitors. After she passed away, Bill, Roz and Allison Coleman undertook successive renovations and updates to the property, continuing to rent it during the summers to long-time friends and new guests. It has been a labor of love to work on this lovely house over the decades and it evokes in us strong memories of the generations that have come before us; in their honor, we have named each apartment. Lena, like others before her, looked forward to the summers when her long-time renters would return to visit, bringing with them stories of their winter months and great friendships built over many years; we are proud to continue this hospitable tradition in the heart of Chatham.

What is special about this property?
Located on a quiet street just off Main Street, Ship's Light is perfectly located and convenient to everything. You can walk downtown to shop in Chatham's great stores, enjoy a meal at a wonderful restaurant, get ice cream, see a movie at the recently-restored Orpheum Theater and attend Friday night Band Concerts; it's a short walk to the public library and Methodist, Episcopal and Congregational churches; Chase Park and the grist mill are right around the corner; Oyster Pond (a nice swimming beach) is a short 1/4 mile stroll; Coast Guard Beach and the Atlantic Ocean is about 1 mile away. Visitors love to sit and read on the porches and decks overlooking Cross Street and Shattuck Place; from these private perches you can put your feet up and watch the world go by.

What is special about your town?
Chatham is located on the ''elbow'' of Cape Cod, surrounded by water on three sides. The Atlantic Ocean, Nantucket Sound and Pleasant Bay not only offer astonishing natural beauty, they also serve to moderate the temperature year round. Although all bedrooms are air conditioned at Ship's Light, locals almost never turn it on; we just open the windows and let the cool breeze flow in. Needless to say, swimming, sun bathing, sailing, boating and fishing are major attractions. Seal and shark watching are also popular, now that the Great Whites have come farther north. The bike trail starts in Chatham and runs all the way to Provincetown. The downtown area is lovely, with unique shops and restaurants.There's a restored movie theater (the Orpheum) that shows a range of first run movies; the Monomoy Theater plays summer stock theater most nights in summer. The Cape League Baseball Teams play on a nearby field and the Chatham Band plays concerts every Friday evening during the summer. Ship's Light is ideally located to all of these attractions, on a quiet side street within close walking distance of downtown and several beaches. Have a drink on the porch, stroll to your dinner reservation and then get ice cream on your walk home!

Chatham in the ''shoulder season'' (spring and fall) is also wonderful, with fewer crowds and great weather. Even in the winter, Chatham is a welcome retreat; First Night in Chatham is very special, offering year round fun and entertainment for all ages.
