We had 10 adults (in and out throughout the week) and 1 little guy (3 yrs). We were all comfortable, and even on the couple nights where we were all there together we weren't tripping over each other. The upstairs was kind of hot midday, but by evening opening windows provided a quick cooldown. Small kids should probably be kept downstairs for sleeping because of the steep stairs and heat during nap time. Bring a baby gate if you have a little one that won't follow the rules. The outside shower was awesome! The pressure is perfect, and it was the most refreshing shower I have ever had. The shower in the garage is perfect for getting sand off your feet.
The beach was absolutely perfect for little ones. The tidal pools have little pockets of minnows and a little chicken on a string will lure tons of tiny crabs at low tide, which proved super exciting for our little man. We saw some seals while kayacking in the bay.
The views are amazing from several places in the house. While eating our breakfast, we observed an adorable family of otters eating their breakfast. From the master bedroom the view of the bay and the boats is stunning all day, but absolutely breathtaking at sunrise and sunset. The kitchen was fully stocked with cookware. The house was completely stocked with everything you could possibly need for a fun rainy day inside. However, we were lucky and didn't have any rain. I don't know how anyone would want to leave this place to do sightseeing, but there are many cool places within 15 minutes from the house. We had a long list of things we still wanted to check out by the time we left, but we had a really hard time even leaving the grounds because there was so much to do on site. I wouldn't miss the Chatham Fish Market to observe the day's catches coming in and the seals fighting over fish. There is a bait shop about 6 min up the road. They are a little eccentric but they were patient with our little one who was overdue for a nap. They gave us some great advice on where to fish. Great vacation. If you are on the fence, this is the place to stay for sure.
