Description

We have finished an interior update of our cottage, and we are now taking reservations for spring/summer/fall 2016.

Our one bedroom Chatham cottage is an ideal getaway spot for a couple or a young family. The cottage is located in the geographical center of Chatham, on a private road in a quiet, tree-filled neighborhood. Guests all agree that we have a fantastic location at a very affordable price. Enjoy a relaxing stay while being close to everything in town. The sunny back deck is a perfect spot for an afternoon barbecue, and a two minute bicycle ride will take you to the Chatham leg of the Cape Cod Bike Path. You'll be less than a mile from the ocean and two sandy Nantucket Sound beaches (Hardings & Ridgevale), and just a 3 minute drive to quaint downtown Chatham Village shops and restaurants. There is a driveway for on-site parking for 3 cars. We also provide the everyday conveniences of home to make your stay enjoyable, including kitchenware, games, books, DVDs, cable TV with Boston Red Sox channel, and wireless high speed cable internet. The cottage is equipped with a dishwasher and Bosch washing machine and dryer. The cottage has a fantastic location, with some of the following distances:

0.3 miles to Chatham Bike Path access
1 mile to Nantucket Sound - Hardings Beach
1 mile to Nantucket Sound - Ridgevale Beach
3 miles to the Atlantic Ocean - Lighthouse Beach
2 miles to Chatham Village and famous Main Street shops & restaurants
5 minutes to major grocery store, movie theater, and video rentals
10 minutes to the Nantucket Fast Ferry (less than 80 minute crossing)
15 minutes to The National Seashore
45 minutes to Historic Provincetown
90 minutes to Boston - Logan Airport and Fenway Park

With fourteen years of online vacation rental experience and a lifetime of local knowledge, we have steadily improved our family cottage to provide the best possible vacation stay for our guests at a very affordable rate. From well thought out informational materials including local maps and guide books; an annually updated folder containing reviews and highlights of local activities shared by previous guests; a pantry stocked with the often needed basics; to continuously updated amenities, we are committed to offering a fantastic experience to all of our visitors.

Local owner (a custom woodworker - www.bateswoodwork.com - and longtime Chatham commercial fisherman) is available to welcome you to town, answer any questions you may have, offer directions and suggestions, and provide insider knowledge of Chatham's wide variety of activities and attractions.

The Sunday to Sunday rental allows our guests to avoid the heavier Saturday traffic and enjoy a full weekend of events.

Our fully-equipped kitchen has a wonderfully efficient layout to join the comfortable and open living room and complement the outside living on the back deck and includes a fridge, dishwasher, Bosch washer and dryer, toaster, coffee maker, 4 burner electric range, blender, cookware, dishes, glassware, cutlery, and standard kitchen gadgets.

The bedroom is furnished with a full size bed, and the living room offers a queen size pull out sofa.

Out of respect for all guests, we do not permit smoking inside the cottage.

Linens are available for rental upon request. Pets are considered on a case by case basis, approved pets are subject to a $50 pet fee.

Come experience all that Chatham has to offer - sandy beaches, historic lighthouses, seal watching tours, world class sport fishing, scenic coastal views, famous Cape Cod League baseball games, renowned golf courses, traditional Friday Night Band Concerts, great local restaurants, and a busy downtowan nightlife.

Please email or call (see below for contact info) if you have any questions or to inquire about making a reservation.

We have rented this "Chatham Cottage" several times over the last few years. We love it! It has everything we need, and is in a great location to visit anywhere on the Cape via day trip. We particularly enjoy many of the great restaurants nearby, and look forward each year to visiting our favorites again.

One of our favorite things is to bring a motorcycle up on a trailer to use on sightseeing trips to the various Cape Cod towns. We also very much appreciate having a full kitchen, washer / dryer, and internet service available at the cottage.

We cannot say enough about the owners, Luther and Amy, who have always been very accommodating and kind.

Wonderful Stay

Scott and I were delighted to find this adorable cottage in Chatham to rent for a week. We were there while Scott competed in a golf tournament and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage itself had everything we needed -- comfortable bed and bathroom, full well-equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, living area, tv, and a great little back porch to eat and sit out on. It's located in Chatham close to beaches and stores. Luther and Amy were great to correspond with and Amy did a great job showing us around and answering our questions. We highly recommend it and hope to stay again next year! show more show less

"We had a lovely stay this past week. The cottage is exactly as described in the listing. It is the perfect size for our family of 3 and the fact that our boxer was welcome sealed the deal for us! We would definitely rent this property again and highly recommend it to any who might be interested. It has changed my opinion of visiting the Cape! Thanks Luther and Amy for making the perfect place for our family available and reasonable! Michelle"

What a wonderful vacation. Chris and I enjoyed this cottage so much. We spent 2 entire days just hanging out and enjoying this peaceful place. What a treat. There is so much to explore and do here, I can't begin to imagine what it's like here in the summer - yikes! The fall is absolutely a great season to be here. Thanks Luther and Amy for letting us visit your adorable cottage. We had such a wonderful time.

I have been renting our family cottage online by the week in the summer every year since 2002, so I have 15 years of direct hands-on experience. Every year we make improvements to the cottage based on actual responses to weekly surveys provided to visiting guests. I'm a custom woodworker with a local family-owned woodshop, so i have been able to apply this skill to improving the cottage.

I'm also a commercial fisherman during the fishing season. I have my own boat that i currently use to longline in the waters to the east of Chatham. You can visit the fish pier and actually see me unloading my catch on a daily basis from July through October.

What is special about this property?
The cottage has 2 primary assets that make it desirable, the location and the design of the space.

The cottage is located in the geographical center of Chatham. It is only a couple of miles from the heart of Downtown Chatham, and a mile to the beaches. It is on a private gravel drive in a quiet tree-filled neighborhood with local residents. The houses are on half acre lots, with space between each house and its neighbors. You will be off the beaten path in a little pocket of privacy, yet in a couple minutes you can reach anything in town.

The layout of the cottage has evolved over time to maximize the space and value to our guests. A kitchen re-design has allowed for a full kitchen, including dishwasher, washer & dryer, and all the conveniences of home to fit in a cozy space. Guests frequently remark, ''It's so nice in here!! And you have everything we needed for the week!!'' There's a new outside shower, a sunny back deck, an open back yard, even a grill. And all for an affordable rate. We call it our 'cottage', and what we mean is it is our perfect little house.
