Description

Memorial Day 2024 weekend available! Reach out if intersed!

Welcome to the Venture Inn, a nautical, updated 5 bedroom home in South Chatham. A perfect home for a large extended family or multiple families vacationing together. Our coastal home is pet-friendly, sleeps 10 people, has central AC, outdoor shower, and is walking distance to the beach, rail trail, and more! We're away from crowds down a quieter road south of route 28, but only 5 minutes to downtown Chatham and Harwichport. We're very close to many Nantucket Sound beaches - walking distance to one, two within 1.5 mi of the house, and an additional three under 3 mi. from the house.

When you enter the home, you'll walk into our newly renovated and fully equipped open concept kitchen and dining room. The kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel appliances and a beverage fridge in the center island, complete with 3 stools. We have a large communal dining table making it a great gathering space for everyone. Off the kitchen, you can step right out to the deck, which has an outdoor dining table, gas grill, and small seating area with bench.

Our living room has lots of comfy seating, a large flat screen TV, a cozy corner for reading, and a game table with a variety of board games and a large bookcase of books for your enjoyment. (The game table also makes a great WFH desk for those working remotely.) We have three Roku Smart TVs, as well as SONOS speakers and WiFi throughout the home. Outside, you'll enjoy our large deck with a grill as well as an enclosed outdoor shower. You'll also find a shed with beach chairs, outdoor games, etc.

We have five bedrooms and two bathrooms:
• On the main level, there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom (tub). Bedroom #1 has a Full bed, bedroom #2 has a King bed and a flat screen TV, and bedroom #3 has two Twin beds.
• On the lower level, there are two more bedrooms and a bathroom (shower). Bedroom #4 has a Queen bed, and bedroom #5 has two Twin beds. There is also a washer and dryer on this level.

Venture Inn is in close proximity to several beaches and the rail trail. Great area for people that like to be active or enjoy the outdoors. All of the beaches are great for little ones to explore with the gentle waves of the Nantucket Sound and lots of seashells to collect.
• Cockle Cove Beach is a short walk (1/2 mi from end of Cranberry Way) This beach has a bike rack, bathrooms, and is generally one of the quieter beaches, away from crowds.
• There is also a “secret” beach on the way to Cockle Cove – head down a hidden path that takes you to a secluded beach area with great views of Forest Beach and access to Mill Creek (great swimming for kids).
• Ridgevale Beach is 1.5 miles driving or just a short walk down Cockle Cove Beach. This beach has boat rentals, a full-service snack shack, and bathrooms. There’s also a creek here which is great for younger children to swim and play.
• Taylor's Pond is less than a 1/2 mi away, so bring (or rent) a kayak or stand up paddle board. The pond offers a public dock for you to access the water and allows access to the ocean.
• Forest Beach is also 1.5 miles from the house - beautiful scenery and walking trails. You can view the other side of the “secret” beach from here!
• Harding Beach, Red River Beach, and Pleasant Street Beach are all under 3 miles from the house. All great beaches in their own right!

For those looking to get some exercise, we often jog/walk the loop to Cockle Cove Beach, down the beach to Ridgevale, and then back home via the Rail Trail - it's about 3 mi total. Or, we jog / walk down to Forest Beach and back - again about 3 mi total.

For those with bikes, we’re also ¼ mi from the Old Colony Rail Trail. If you head east, this biking/walking trail can take you directly into downtown Chatham (about 4.5 mi). If you head west, you can head all the way into Dennis or connect to the Cape Cod Rail Trail and head as far north as Wellfleet!

Our home is a five minute drive to downtown Chatham or downtown Harwichport, which both offer great shopping and restaurants (lots of curbside pick-up options)! Other areas within walking distance include:
• ¼ mile to Short n' Sweet, the best ice cream shop on the Cape!
• ½ mile to Marion's Pie Shop
• 0.9 miles to to Drifters. Incredible food and cocktails! Great vibe and fun place to eat!
• 0.9 miles to Pisces Restaurant for great seafood and finer dining. Right across from Drifters – we generally have a drink at one and walk across the street to eat at the other!

*Please note we can accommodate parking for three cars; there is no on street parking available.

    Wonderful stay

    We had a wonderful week, the home is spectacular and very comfortable. The two levels gave us the opportunity to have the kids separate from the adults when we all needed a little break. We all loved the short walk to Cockle Cove Beach. The School house ice cream was great as well. The home was very well equipped and we made several fantastic dinners that we all shared on the deck. Overall it was a fantastic stay.

    Venture Inn family reunion

    We were so excited for our stay at the Venture Inn. The house is amazing and has all the amenities you could want. Closeness to all beaches were a major plus not to mention the ice cream shops! We had family come in from California and there was plenty of room for everyone. I would recommend a stay at the Venture Inn 100%.

    Terrific Chatham house and location

    This is our second year renting this house from Katie and Corey. They are super responsive and want you to have a wonderful time in their home. The house, inside and out, is well kept with an easy living layout. We are a family of grown children and a little one- there is plenty of room for everyone to have fun and to (unfortunately) work. The beach is an easy walk- we normally drop all the chairs off then people can come and go as they like. It is easy distance to both Harwich (great bars and restaurants) and Chatham center. We are looking to rent again next year! show more show less

    Fantastic

    Our stay in this home was fantastic. Everything we needed was right there for us. The home fit our family nicely with plenty of room to cook , sit and eat inside or outside, relax in the living room and sleep. The location was amazing. We were 5-15 minutes away from some of the most beautiful beaches . It was our first experience at the Cape and we were able to explore Provincetown , Hyannis and go to Martha vineyard because Chatham was centrally located to all of them. We can't wait to stay again next year. Thank you show more show less

    Amazing Stay

    This is a beautiful house which felt so welcoming from the minute we stepped inside. Being able to bring our dog was amazing - he absolutely loved his beach vacation! The house was exceptionally clean, the kitchen had everything you could possibly want and Katie (the owner) was always super responsive. The back deck was a great place to relax, the yard was perfect for games, and the outdoor shower was awesome - and private!! The beach was a comfortable walk away. We absolutely loved our stay and hope that it is the first of many. show more show less

    Venture Inn Stay

    Our families enjoyed our stay at the Venture Inn in Chatham~ conveniently located near Cockle Cove beach and Harwich Port! This home had everything we needed to prepare meals with a well-stocked kitchen!

    We used the beach chairs, umbrella and beachcomber cart everyday at the beach. Venture Inn is clean, well kept and decorated tastefully with coastal decor! The family room was cozy and comfortable for our movie nights together after a day at the beach and touring around Chatham. The outside shower was a bonus after a beach day to rinse off sand and even bath our Golden Doodle. We loved hanging on the deck after a day at the beach and played frisbee in the spacious yard with our dog !

    We had a wonderful week together and thankful for our stay at the lovely Venture Inn and appreciated the positive interaction/communication with Katie the Homeowner!

    Wonderful rental in Chatham

    My family and I want to thank Katie and Corey for welcoming us to their beautiful home to get away from it all and finally relax and enjoy beautiful Cape Cod. Their home is immaculate, spacious, and so comfortable. There was plenty of room for all families to hang out together on the large porch, kitchen and family room. The two floor layout was perfect for both families to enjoy and have their own privacy when needed. We loved the location. We could walk to Cockle Cove Beach or take a quick drive to Harding's Beach and both were beautiful beaches.

    It truly is a wonderful home to rent and you couldn't find more caring and wonderful hosts.

    Fun in the Sun

    Our family recently stayed at The Venture Inn with grandparents, sons and wives, and grandchildren. We all had lots of fun both in air-conditioned comfort and relaxing on the back deck. The home is convenient to the beach and downtown.

    It was very clean when we arrived, kitchen was well equipped, and the game room was well supplied with puzzles, games and PS4. Although the PS4 generated a few cries of "it's my turn now," the grandkids enjoyed having it handy.

    Katie was very responsive if we needed anything, and the welcome package got us started with the usual needs of a household. Can highly recommend The Venture Inn for a stay in Chatham. show more show less

    Wonderful vacation home!

    We've stayed at this home for the past 2 summers and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house is spacious and well equipped with everything you need for a week at the Cape. It is clean, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. The owners are lovely and available to answer any questions that may come up. We plan to stay here again!

    Chatham charmer!

    We have rented cottages on Cape Cod for almost 30 years and this was one of our favorites. The house was spacious but cozy! It was very clean!

    You can tell the owner takes pride in the home's appearance and it shows on the inside and out. The deck was a great place to have dinner and we did! The yard was great. It had Cape Cod charm with hydrangeas out front. The location was great for dining, ice cream, coffee, and most important the beach!

    We would definitely rent this beautiful home again. show more show less

    Katie's family has been coming to Chatham for years, so we're excited to be back here and welcome you to our home, The Venture Inn. We purchased the home in 2016 and have updated it to reflect the coastal living style of the Cape, while also making it functional and comfortable for families/groups on vacation. We spend lots of time during the off-season here with our toddler and dog, Max, who might possibly love Cockle Cove more than us.

    What is special about this property?
    We really love the open concept kitchen and dining room space; it's the heart of our home and we end up spending most of our time here. We also love the location. It's only a 5 minute drive to either downtown Chatham or Harwichport, with all of our favorite bars and restaurants. We're never too far from anything. At the same time, we enjoy quiet walks down to Cockle Cove Beach every morning.

    What is special about your town?
    Chatham is the perfect blend of picturesque Cape Cod. A bustling downtown filled with local businesses balanced with the beauty of several Nantucket Sound beaches. We hope you love it as much as we do!
