Description

Description

All bookings are through Pine Acres Vacations... please email for information. Main attraction... the BEACH and the Ocean. Privacy. Tidal wetlands. Serene location. Fully equipped. Wildlife. Bike trails. Shopping. . There are no chain stores in Chatham which provides for a unique place to walk and shop. In keeping with this theme, this home is situated in a neighborhood unchanged in density over the last 60 years. It provides for a safe and simple place to relax and for families to explore. Very private location...(situated on 2 acres of private woods) away from the road.
This home is a short walk to Cockle Cove Beach, which is maintained by the Town of Chatham. This beach is continuous with Ridgevale Beach and a wade in the water onto Harding's Beach (a little less than a mile of beach for sunbathing, swimming, beach sports etc) The water at Cockle Cove Beach is shallow for a good distance out, providing for a safe place to enjoy the water. There are no currents or surf at Cockle Cove Beach.

The house was built up out of the ground to take advantage of the view and being in the trees. You will be comfortable with heat, A/C, cable TV with a Roku, and WIFI. Three levels of living space with a large deck overlooking the grounds. The lower level offers a sitting area along with a bunk bed (plus a bottom futon sofa that can be laid flat to make a double bed). and a full bath. There are 2 bedrooms and full bath on the main floor and another bedroom and 1/2 bath on the upper level.(3 sleeping levels)

The kitchen is fully equipped with a large refrigerator (with icemaker), dishwasher, microwave, oven and range top, toaster oven and coffee maker (plus a Keurig). There is a Weber gas grill on the deck. The area on the ground level in front of the house provides a space for badminton, frisbee, and includes a firepit. The landlords live in the adjacent house. There is an outdoor shower with hot water for removing beach sand and enjoying a Cape Cod tradition. Many beach toys and a beach cart are also available (in the garage).

The environment. The location provides a quiet space for perfect beach vacation. Waking to the bird calls , to going to sleep after a watching the stars from the deck, it becomes easy to relax. Living in a relatively unpopulated space makes it possible to walk the short distance to the beach to enjoy the moonlight on the water and the stars overhead. If you choose, there are many great shops & restaurants nearby in Chatham, great bike trails, shopping in Chatham, or exploring nature at the Natural History Museum in Brewster or any one of the facilities or activities sponsored by the Audubon Society.

    Peaceful oasis during a pandemic

    Our family thoroughly enjoyed our getaway week at this lovely, quiet house. We brought just about all the food we needed and the fully equipped kitchen made it possible for us to have all of our meals at the house, mostly out on the deck. The open floor plan and large windows in the living/dining area were a big plus. Having two beaches a short walk away was also ideal. We could get to the center of town in less than a ten-minute drive, and enjoyed seeing the seals at the Fish Pier when we went to buy local seafood. We also highly recommend the local farmer's market, held on Tuesday afternoons (May-October). We would gladly return to Tom and Merry's house! show more show less

    Awesome!

    Probably my favorite part of our stay was how it was so peaceful and private. The closeness to the ocean was also very special. You can see and hear the ocean from the balcony just by looking through the trees. And if you love water activities, kayaks and lots of fun stuff are provided. The family extended so much info and hospitality that we want to come every year! We give it a five star rating!

    Perfect Spot for a Cape Cod Vacation

    We brought our family to this idyllic paradise for a week vacation. The house is large, well maintained and fully stocked with everything needed for a fun filled vacation. The beach access is a short beautiful walk down the street and the beach quiet and easily swim able. A bonus is the canal which you can float with the tide. We appreciated the easy access to central Chatham, just a bit up the highway, but also the central location to access the rest of the towns on the Cape. We loved every moment of our Cape Cod vacation! show more show less

    Perfect vacation home at great location

    We loved the house and location. We stayed there for a family reunion with three children. The house is very spacious with plenty of space for everyone. We also enjoyed the deck and BBQ. The house is well equipped and has everything you need, even beach chairs, umbrella, and beach toys. The owners are very nice and helpful. We also loved the location. The house is a short walk from two fantastic beaches. We are definitively planning to come back.

    Our 3rd stay here

    This vacation home is perfect for our family: plenty of space, all the conveniences of home, and so comfortable. We love the privacy of the home. The short walk to the private section of Cockle Cove Beach is great for families with kids. My granddaughter who is 5 loves playing on the beach; especially at low tide where she can run out and search for shells, crabs & more. The location is great. So many great restaurants, bakeries and shops to explore. We have loved staying here, and we've had 3; wonderful experiences and memories made here. show more show less

    Lovely Chatham Home

    We had a great week. The house was clean, comfortable, spacious. Merry and Tom were wonderful hosts, providing us with a wagon and cart for all of our beach gear. I really enjoyed the porch- al fresco dining on fresh seafood from the local pier. The only suggestion I have would be for brighter lights in the bedrooms. Otherwise everything was great. Air conditioning- when needed. Nice breeze with windows open. Close to the beaches with lots of wildlife. Kids had a great time too. Thanks!

    Fantastic House

    We rented this house in August and had a fantastic time. The location is perfect, two beaches in walking distance and a 10 min drive to downtown Chatham. Plus, it has everything you need to make your vacation restful and relaxing - not least of which are the views from the deck. I couldn't recommend the house more highly and would not hesitate to rent again if we were to go back to the Cape.

    A Truly Wonderful Vacation House

    My family has been renting this wonderful house for more than 25 summers, so it's obvious that we love it! It is spacious and private, at the end of a very quiet lane, with every amenity you could want in a summer place -- WiFi, cable TV, fully equipped kitchen, two full baths (plus outdoor shower), washer & dryer, deck with gas grill, and a great room with soaring ceilings and a wonderful view.

    What more could you want? There's its large, woodsy lot with plenty of shade, privacy and room for the kids to have water-gun fights and chase fireflies. And the *two* great beaches -- one public, one much more private and secluded -- within a 5-minute walk. And its perfect location, just outside Chatham off Rte. 28 with easy access to grocery shopping, restaurants, bike trails and the rest of the Cape.

    Finding this house was one of the luckiest things that ever happened to our family. I cannot recommend it more highly -- as long as you leave a week or two for us!

    Cape Cod Magic

    Cape Cod has to be the place for good summer living. We enjoyed the A frame house on Chatharbor Lane in the summer of 2015. We caught the morning breeze and watched the sun sparkle off the water as we had morning coffee on the deck high in the trees. On cool evenings we built a fire indoors and listened for owls as the sun set.

    For us the secret behind a relaxing vacation is a comfortable home base (the beds here are great!) and lots of choices of activities for everyone. The mosaic of nearby towns and museums and beaches to visit for shopping and sightseeing and swimming and water sports let us plan each day with a leisurely trip and a relaxing evening at a restaurant or at our own house under the stars.

    When we wanted to cook in, the A frame house was set up with everything we needed for a celebration of grilling and an impressive kitchen for easy cooking and entertaining. We shopped for local seafood and veggies and fruit and had quick and tasty meals on our own schedule.

    We figure life is what we make of it. And with plenty of bedrooms and baths here, we plan to bring the grandkids on our next visit. They will love following the sandy trail thru the trees and beach plum bushes to fish from the huge warm boulders that guide the tide from Taylors Pond to the ocean. And the short walk from the house to the right-size Cockle Cove Beach for wading in the waves and sandcastle building will be something they will look forward to each day.

    This house at Cape Cod is a place to build lots of fond memories.

    We have been Summering on the Cape... at this address when Merry's parents bought the land and built the first house in 1941 ! (before Merry was born!)

    What is special about this property?
    We love our location, easy walk to both Cockle Cove and Ridgevale beaches as well as a secluded ''private'' beach on a sandy road. Both are perfect for small children and also for adults. At the secluded beach, we enjoy swimming in a tidal channel that is always deep.
    Our house is set in the woods... with a view to the water... but very private. No traffic noise.. just birds (and maybe even an owl). There is space in front of the house to set up a badminton net. Also, easy parking for about 3 cars.

    What is special about your town?
    Chatham has been rated as a top ten place to vacation on Cape Cod ! great beaches, lots of fun shopping and wonderful restaurants. Be sure to visit the Visitor Center on Rt 28 where Rt 137 deadends... and pick up lots of info about what to see/do. The Chatham Orpheum Theatre is a beautifully restored theatre in downtown Chatham that offers 1st run movies, kid movies and community events. Also, during the Summer the Monomoy Theatre offers live theatre by the University of Hartford Hartt School.
    Lots of deep sea fishing opportunities, beach walks..... everything BEACH.
