We stayed at the Chimney House for a week in July 2015 and loved every minute of it. We are a family of four from outside Toronto, with two kids aged 5 and 7 and this was our first visit to Cape Cod. We definitely picked the right place to stay - the Chimney House and Chatham were both the right choice.
The Chimney House was fantastic - clean, quiet, comfortable, private, and a great location - central to everything the Cape has to offer. It felt like home the second we arrived, and it was a perfect home base for us for the week, as we made trips to Boston, Nantucket, Hyannis, and Provincetown. It was fully equipped, including kitchen/laundry and had absolutely everything we needed for our stay.
Chatham was definitely the place to stay, with a fantastic downtown, great restaurants, shops, beaches, etc! Our favourite beach was Hardings Beach, about a 2 minutes from the Chimney House.
David and Beth were awesome from the moment we inquired about renting the Chimney House. We knew exactly what to expect upon arriving, and they were also nice enough to answer all my emails about what we should see/do while visiting. They were more than helpful in providing suggestions on restaurants and things to see, and made our trip that much more enjoyable. The only thing we didn't have time for (which we regret) was checking out a ball game in Chatham.
I would recommend staying at the Chimney House to anyone looking to make a trip to Cape Cod. Thanks again and we will definitely be back again soon!
