Description

Description

The Cape that you remember can still be found at our cottage, “Overlook”, on Chatharbor Lane. Simplicity is the key to relaxation. This cottage is easy to live in and has just what you want in a summer vacation house, and a true ocean view! The Cockle Cove Beach property is located on Nantucket sound, five miles from Chatham's fine shopping district, about a mile from the bike trail and ice cream. If you like swimming, kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, kite-boarding (Forest Beach, an adjacent beach, is one of the top windsurfing and kite boarding spots on the Cape), or just quietly relaxing, you will love this beach.

The cottage has an updated kitchen, renovated compact bathroom, flat TV, new Washer/Dryer and deck, most renovations all within the last five years. Though the beach is only 300 feet from the back door, the beach is accessed by walking to Cockle Cove Beach, a distance of nine hundred feet. Cockle Cove Beach stretches from Forest Beach to Ridgevale Beach with plenty of space to spread out. This is a pet free home and has been for more than a decade. There are window mounted air conditioners, but they are seldom used because the ocean breeze does the job nicely. With Sun, Sand and surf... As well as WIFI, Cable, DVD player, this cottage has all that you need!

The house is simple, as a beach house should be. Everything is on one level. The floors are wood, lots of glass faces the ocean and the windows offer the ocean breeze. The kitchen has an electric stove and should please most chefs. The fireplace is suitable for small fires. A few Duraflame logs are in the closet for your enjoyment. There is a queen size bed and two single beds. In a pinch, the couch is actually a queen size pullout sofa bed that can used for extra guests. Occupancy is best with up to four people. The owners live nearby. There is very little yard but with nearly a mile of beach at hand, there is more than enough room for tossing a frisbee. There is no smoking inside of the building.

This little cottage is nestled by a grassy marsh facing Nantucket Sound. Its mature plantings offer great privacy. It is a small neighborhood composed of a few seasonal and year-round residents. The neighboring public Cockle Cove Beach is free if you walk or bike, or they charge if you drive, only a few hundred yards from your door. The stretch of beach between creeks is about 4000 feet long. The water is warm in the summer and shallow for a great distance. The beach is machine groomed regularly in the summer to rake up seaweed on the shore, leaving a nice sandy beach. Because the sound is protected by the distant Monomoy Island, there is usually no dangerous surf or current, as there is on Lighthouse beach. Cockle Cove is a great place for playing in the water!

Overlook Cottage Chatham, Ma.

My wife and I recently spent a week at the Overlook Cottage. It was exactly as described, a clean and quiet spot close to the beach. Because of the incredible view from the back deck we ended up eating there more often then planned. A short drive to downtown Chatham with little to no traffic. My favorite seafood market down the street, nothing more we could ask for. Our host Steve was awesome and available if needed. There are many rental homes in the area and most with fancy upgrades and large rooms, but NO place had this view. If you just wanted a nice quiet place to get away, this is it!!! Can't wait until next summer. show more show less

A Great Spot In Chatham

When I grew up, my family had a cottage in Cockle Cove so this was a return many years later to a special place on the Cape. This property had it all from our experience - a great location, proximity to the beach, beautiful views, peace and quiet and a central location for visiting places of interest on the Cape. The owners were helpful and available and the property well kept with everything we needed for a great time. Eat in or go to one of the great places to eat close by. Shop and visit in Chatham. Visit Wellfleet, Provincetown, Hyannis and more. Great resources and ideas available at the house. Watch fishermen, birds and wildlife from the deck and take in beautiful views of the Sound. Loved it. No problems at all. Thanks for the memories! show more show less

Lovely Cottage with Amazing Views

My wife and I stayed at this beautiful place last year for one week. This property was AMAZING. Quiet neighborhood, beautiful beaches, and amazing views! We loved it so much that we came back this year again! If you are looking for a gorgeous, comfortable place in the perfect location then you’ll love “Overlook” cottage as much as we do. The cottage has incredible views of the water and the marshes with wildlife that you can watch while sitting on the deck eating, talking, reading and just relaxing. This cottage is very clean and is well equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The kitchen is well stocked and sparkling. We enjoyed our stay at the cottage tremendously and didn't want to leave. We would definitely recommend this gorgeous place to our friends! show more show less

An enchanting view awaits you at this charming cottage. It is cozy and exceptionally clean, with all the amenities you need for a comfortable vacation. Ownership pride is evident here with investment in a new washer/dryer and a new dishwasher. What a magical spot!

Soooo perfect

This is the perfect get-a-way ... just enough space with an endless view of the water. We loved the new bath, cozy living room and especially the deck. It was spotless when we checked in and the owners who live nearby were the perfect hosts.... full of ideas where to eat/shop and just enjoy a great vacation. We'll be back !!

Great getaway!
5 of 5 from Homeaway
This little cottage is easy to fall in love with - out the back door is a short stretch of flat marsh (with countless birds, animals and a lovely breeze) and beyond is the ocean. You can hear the lapping tide and see the sailboats as you sit on the deck and have your morning coffee. The beach is just a short walk and is absolutely lovely! Be sure to check out low tide, when you can walk out really far and still stay only up to your knees, and the tidal pools are filled with lots of critters.
The house has everything you need, including the charm of the Cape as we hear it once was (this was our first time!). Working with Steve, the owner, was easy and he's quite nice. We will be back for sure! Don't forget to try the seafood pie at the nearby pie shop, and their cinnamon buns! :)

View alone is worth the stay.

The yellow cottage is a nature lovers paradise, views of both the ocean and the marsh(which is teeming with wild life). The cottage was as described, clean and well supplied, just bring your bedding. Location was close to restaurants and attractions including a short walk to Cockle Cove beach. Would recommend to family and friends.

Best stay in Chatham in over 30 years!!!
5 of 5 from Homeaway
We had an amazing vacation and loved our stay in the yellow cottage. Perfect for my family of 4 and a view of the Ocean to die for. The wildlife is wonderful: heron,deer,rabbits, and a pack of coyotes and their pups shared the property with us for a true South Chatham experience. I have been going to the Cockle Cove area almost every year since 1982 and this was by far my best experience. Up to date cottage just seconds from the beach. I would highly recommend if you want a true Cape Cod experience and truly relax. show more show less

This was our second time staying at the little yellow cottage and certainly won't be our last! The size is perfect for my husband and I and our two young daughters and the location is just perfect. The walk to the beach is short and pleasant and the view from the back deck is just gorgeous! We enjoyed watching a mother coyote and her two pups frolicking in the marsh behind the cottage a few mornings which was a special treat along with other wildlife and countless birds. The beds were comfortable and the cottage is outfitted with absolutely everything we needed. Chatham is the perfect location for a family with young ones as there is a wonderful playground and ball field downtown along with fun shops and restaurants. Can't wait to go back!

5 of 5 from Homeaway

The cottage is perfect for me. The first time I saw it, I was so pleased because it was exactly like the online posting's description. I wanted a quiet, private place that would make me feel like I was living there, not just vacationing. It has just the right amount of space and amenities. It is always clean (love the new bathroom remodel), the view is spectacular (sitting on the back deck is so relaxing) and it is very easy to get to. A great location from which to explore the rest of the Cape. Steve and Barb are so nice and allow you the peace you look forward to when getting away from it all. I have been there 5 times in 2 years and will be returning as long as they will have me. I love referring to it as "my cottage" and HIGHLY recommend it!

I am a Chatham Resident and local business-man. My Wife, Daughter and I are enjoying our twenty-second year in town.

What is special about this property?
Really... what a nice spot. A wide view of Nantucket Sound, a sunny deck with a South-West breeze, handy fridge... what's not to like? When you key the door and walk in, you'll see the view and realize that this time, you did it right!

What is special about your town?
Chatham is the place to be! Home to titans of industry, reclusive stars and working fellows like myself that want to live in my favorite place!
