We spent five days in Chatham in June and only wish we could have spent the entire summer or permanently! The town itself is absolutely charming. We felt like we stepped back in time! The town as well as all the homes are so tidy and clean, and flowers were everywhere! Our weather was perfect! There was so much to see and do, and the restaurants were all excellent; so many to choose from. We spent time exploring the town both walking and biking, hiking the beaches, kayaking, watching the fishing boats bring in their daily catch (sea lions enjoying it also and had the best clam strips I've ever had right on the pier!) and hanging out at the rental house. Let me rephrase that...hanging out at "home" because that's how it felt. This home is in a great location and easily bikeable to town. It's beautiful and so very cozy. Not old and drab, but new and uplifting. The layout is wonderful and spacious and the colors are tasteful and calm as is all the home furnishings.
But, the most wonderful thing about this home is the attention to detail the homeowner went to to make sure every guest has everything they need. We didn't have to shop for anything which is always the case when one rents a house. From shampoo and suntan lotion to hair ties and beach towels, evening games and puzzles, laundry detergent and bikes and propane for the grill! The kitchen was fully stocked with not only all pots, pans, dishes, bowls, and utensils, but paper products, plastic wrap, etc. as well! It made cooking in the kitchen like cooking at home! And, the beautiful patio a complete pleasure. It's lovely and we spent several late afternoons in the hammock just listening to the leaves rustle and birds sing. And, the fire pit is perfect for s'mores! There isn't enough space to say all the goods things I'd like to about this home so I'll leave you with...staying in this home in this lovely town should be on your bucket list!!
