Description

Description

Take advantage of a reduced rate for the fabulous FALL season....great weather, less traffic and everything still open. About the home and location: It has it all!!! Beaches. Ocean. Privacy. Tidal wetlands. Serene location. Fully equipped. Wildlife. Bike trails. Shopping. Chatham has worked to preserve its appearance and character as it existed 50 plus years ago. There are no chain stores in Chatham which provides for a unique place to walk and shop. In keeping with this theme, this home on Chatharbor Lane is situated in a neighborhood unchanged in density over the last 60 years. It provides for a safe and simple place to relax and for families to explore.
For an additional $50 we can provide linens.

Main attraction—the BEACH. This house is on 2 acres of wooded grounds with a view to Nantucket sound. Its mature trees provide for considerable privacy. The home is in a small neighborhood of year round residencies and a few seasonal homes—some are rentals. It is a short walk to Cockle Cove Beach, which is maintained by the Town of Chatham. There is a daily fee for use of this guarded beach but only if you choose to drive to the beach but it is only a short walk from the house. This beach is continuous with Ridgevale Beach and a wade in the water onto Hardings Beach (a little less than a mile of beach for sunbathing, swimming, beach sports etc. This beach is groomed from Memorial day to labor day to remove the seaweed providing a long stretch of sandy beach. The water at Cockle Cove Beach is shallow for a good distance out providing for a safe place to enjoy the water. There are no currents or surf at Cockle Cove Beach. There is a local beach extending to the West from the town beach to the effluent from Taylor’s Pond that is more natural and full of shore life. This beach can be accessed by walking a short distance to the West on Chatharbor Lane. This beach is a local beach as there is no way to access this beach by car. It provides a wonderful beach surrounded by wetlands teaming with wildlife for families to enjoy: birding, fishing, beachcombing and lots of small crabs for the kids to catch and release.


The home. The house is an uncomplicated vacation home with privacy. The home was built up out of the ground to take advantage of the view and being in the trees. The house has cable TV, internet with WiFi and hardwired telephone service along with a DVD player. It has a ground floor, a main floor with a 300 sq ft deck and an upper level. The home is continuously being upgraded the main floor has hardwood floors and is air conditioned. The ocean breeze provides for adequate comfort on most days and evenings. The ground floor offers a sitting area along with a bunk bed (the bottom futon sofa can be laid flat to make a double bed as can the sofa in the sitting area.) and full bath. Occupancy is normally limited to eight people. The kitchen is fully equipped with a large refrigerator (with icemaker), dishwasher, microwave, oven and range top, toaster oven and coffee maker. There is a gas grill on the deck. The area on the ground level in front of the house provides a space for badminton, frisbee The landlords live in the adjacent house. There is an outdoor shower with hot water for removing beach sand and enjoying a Cape Cod tradition.

The environment. The location provides a quiet space for perfect beach vacation. Awakening to the bird calls to going to sleep after a watching the stars from the deck it becomes easy to relax. Living in a relatively unpopulated space makes it possible to walk the short distance to either beach to enjoy the moonlight on the water and the stars overhead. If you choose there are many great restaurants nearby, Friday night band concerts downtown Chatham, summer baseball (Chatham A’s), great bike trails, shopping in Chatham, or exploring nature at the Natural History Museum in Brewster or any one of the facilities or activities sponsored by the Audubon Society.

A Truly Wonderful Vacation House

My family has been renting this wonderful house for more than 25 summers, so it's obvious that we love it! It is spacious and private, at the end of a very quiet lane, with every amenity you could want in a summer place -- WiFi, cable TV, fully equipped kitchen, two full baths (plus outdoor shower), washer & dryer, deck with gas grill, and a great room with soaring ceilings and a wonderful view.

What more could you want? There's its large, woodsy lot with plenty of shade, privacy and room for the kids to have water-gun fights and chase fireflies. And the *two* great beaches -- one public, one much more private and secluded -- within a 5-minute walk. And its perfect location, just outside Chatham off Rte. 28 with easy access to grocery shopping, restaurants, bike trails and the rest of the Cape.

Finding this house was one of the luckiest things that ever happened to our family. I cannot recommend it more highly -- as long as you leave a week or two for us!

Cape Cod Magic

Cape Cod has to be the place for good summer living. We enjoyed the A frame house on Chatharbor Lane in the summer of 2015. We caught the morning breeze and watched the sun sparkle off the water as we had morning coffee on the deck high in the trees. On cool evenings we built a fire indoors and listened for owls as the sun set.

For us the secret behind a relaxing vacation is a comfortable home base (the beds here are great!) and lots of choices of activities for everyone. The mosaic of nearby towns and museums and beaches to visit for shopping and sightseeing and swimming and water sports let us plan each day with a leisurely trip and a relaxing evening at a restaurant or at our own house under the stars.

When we wanted to cook in, the A frame house was set up with everything we needed for a celebration of grilling and an impressive kitchen for easy cooking and entertaining. We shopped for local seafood and veggies and fruit and had quick and tasty meals on our own schedule.

We figure life is what we make of it. And with plenty of bedrooms and baths here, we plan to bring the grandkids on our next visit. They will love following the sandy trail thru the trees and beach plum bushes to fish from the huge warm boulders that guide the tide from Taylors Pond to the ocean. And the short walk from the house to the right-size Cockle Cove Beach for wading in the waves and sandcastle building will be something they will look forward to each day.

This house at Cape Cod is a place to build lots of fond memories.

Our family has enjoyed vacation life at the Dahms' house almost every Summer for nearly 20 years. It's become like a second home for us. It's comfortable, roomy, quiet at night, very well equipped and convenient to everything we love about the Cape...the golf courses, the beaches and the wonderful village of Chatham. We recommend it most enthusiastically... as long as there's time left every year for us !

We discovered this wonderful house several Summers ago and have been returning ever since. The house is clean and comfortable and a very short walk from two great beaches. The deck and grill are perfect for cooking out and we love the new outdoor shower !

Vacationing at the Dahms' Summer home in Chatham is a wonderful experience. The location and space is terrific and the amenities create a very satisfying place for a family vacation. The short walk to the beach is great, and the view from the deck and livingroom to the private woods and the ocean is awesome.
