Description

Description

After walking by the beautiful hydrangeas and enter through the front door you will realize this house is much more spacious than it looks from the outside. You enter the comfortable living room with the adjoining dining area and you look into the very spacious fireplaced family room with a 32 square foot picture window overlooking the large back yard bordered by trees. This room also has a table for dining with a pass through window from the kitchen. The black and white eat in kitchen has an Electrolux wall oven, a brand new Bosch dishwasher, a Jenn Aire ceramic cook top, a Keurig coffee maker, granite counter tops and recessed lights.

There are two bedrooms on this level, the first has a queen size bed and the second has two twins. There is a full bath with tub and shower. All floors on this level are oak except for the kitchen and bath which are ceramic tile.

As you proceed downstairs to the walk out lower level the washer dryer will be on your left. To the right will be three twin beds which are a perfect set up for children. This room shares a closet with the other bedroom on this floor.
The fourth bedroom has a queen bed, a flat screen TV, a full bath (no tub) and its own private entrance if desired. Great for the in-laws, babysitter or a second couple.

The large back yard has lawn furniture, a picnic bench for 8, a gas grill and an enclosed outside shower. The yard is big enough for whiffle ball, croquet, or whatever else you may like to play and is not at all close to any roads. Ridgevale Beach is a quick walk down the road (or you can drive, there is parking). This beach is beloved by families. The Chatham Bike Trail which connects to the Cape Cod Rail Trail is less than a mile away.

Marian's Pie Shop is also an easy walk and her cinnamon rolls are legendary. The center of downtown Chatham is about 3.5 miles and can be reached via the bike trail if so desired.

We have been staying at this home every September for the past 14 years. Every year an enhancement has been made to the property. The proximity to Ridgevale Beach (10 minute walk) is a real plus. Further, about a half mile from Marian's Pie Shop and her famous cinnamon rolls and other great desserts. Just a tad further than that is the bike trail from which you can explore so much. Chatham is centrally located halfway between Sagamore Bridge and Provincetown so it's easy to go to the National Seashore as well as Cape Cod Bay. But with Nantucket Sound at the end of the street, there is almost no need to go to the other beaches. The house is always immaculate and well maintained, the backyard is large and the area is quiet. I highly recommend this for your visit to Chatham. show more show less

This is a delightful cottage in a great spot on Cape Cod. It is not really walking distance to any town (although there's a delicious pie shop a few minutes away). But it's a 10 minute walk to a beautiful beach! It's also right in the centre of the Cape, so nothing is too far. We explored Hyannis, Yarmouth, Harwich, Orleans, Provincetown and Chatham in the one week stay. The cottage itself is a little dated but very comfortable spacious and clean. The third bedroom and second bathroom is in the basement but it looks out onto the very ample backyard. The eat-in kitchen is perfectly usable and there are plenty of pots and pans and dishes and glasses, etc. There are two living room areas (a sitting area and a TV area), as well as a dining room (which we did not use). Sheets and towels are not included and have to be rented separately, so take that into account when considering the price. However there are ample beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc. This was a huge convenience as we threw them in the car and took them to the different beaches we explored. The owner (Paul) was a total pleasure to deal with and even offered some recommendations about what to do. He stopped by at one point to return our security deposit personally. We would completely recommend this place to anyone looking for a reasonable rental on Cape Cod. It's more rustic rather than shiny and new. But as long as you understand what you are getting you will have a great time. show more show less

There were no surprises during our recent stay....everything was just as we anticipated. The home was sparkling clean when we arrived and we found the main floor to be bright and spacious. The downstairs area is a little tighter but the space is ample. I would stay there again without question. We had a great time.

Beautiful on the inside and out!

Property was wonderful! Plenty of space to stretch out with both a 2 yr old and a golden retriever. The beach is a close ten minute walk in a wonderful, safe neighborhood. All the amenities you need for a great beach adventure!

Excellent home in a great location

My family of 4 really enjoyed our stay. The location of the house is excellent. It's a short drive to the shops on Main Street in Chatham and walking distance to Ridgevale beach The house is very well maintained and much bigger than it looks in the pictures. Paul the owner was very easy to work with during the booking process and made himself available throughout our stay. Ridgevale beach is a great beach especially having the estuary for younger children to play in. We hope to return next year. show more show less

Fun, easy, and relaxing- a perfect getaway!

This home was perfect for us! We flew in from California for a family reunion. I was traveling with my two children, ages five and seven, my mom, and my 91-year-old grandmother. We wanted to make sure that any home we rented was able to accommodate everyone's needs-- this one did! The downstairs room (with three cozy twin beds) was cute and fun for my kids while the bedroom was private and perfect for me. My grandmother enjoyed her room and had no issues navigating the home and the minimal stairs at the front door. The beds were clean and comfortable and each room had blackout shades!!! We happened to be there during a very hot and humid week so the air conditioning was a fabulous treat every time we got back to the house. The home was very clean, well taken care of, and well stocked. Additionally, the owners were prompt and responsive both before and during the rental, even checking in during the week and making sure everything ran smoothly. There are plenty of beach chairs in the garage downstairs as well as extra beach toys for the little ones. The home is centrally located so it was great to be able to walk to Main Street and have something yummy at Marion's pie shop or just head straight down to the beach and spend the day there. There was plenty of comfortable space for everyone to spread out, dine, lounge, play games, do puzzles, or just enjoy a relaxing nap in the middle of the day. The home has a really soothing energy to it so napping mid-day became a sought after part of our trip quickly upon our arrival. We couldn't have asked for anything more and would definitely come back to this home in the future! Thank you! show more show less

Great location

We really enjoyed staying in this location. The accommodations were spacious, the yard big enough to have a cookout with family, and the area was quiet. We would definitely consider renting this house again.

Location is INCREDIBLE!! Great for families!

Loved this house. It was exactly what we needed and wanted. It is much bigger than it looks. Quiet neighborhood and is centrally located, making everything very easy to get to. We Stayed the week of July fourth and experienced Americana at its best! The fourth of July parade, oldest in the country, was AWESOME! That night, the kids were tired and we decided to walk down the hill to the beach in lieu of going to fireworks in near by town. We were happy to see that the local families put on quite a show of fireworks and the 8 and 9 year old kids were happy as clams! Parents were to, since we didn't have to drive anywhere!! I chose this house because the kitchen is nice and upgraded,, bathrooms were nice and it has CENTRAl AIR! We had last minute family come for visit, so we gave mom in law and two Aunties the upstairs bedrooms and hubby and I were in bedroom downstairs with two kiddos in separate basement room that was just fine. Nothing fancy downstairs but great for purpose. Owner, Paul, was very patient with us, as I inadvertently thought check out was 11a.m. and it was actually 10 a.m. Chatham is THE place. Close to cool drive in theatre, water boats, kyak rentals, sailboats, etc. Have to say BRAX restaurant, few miles down the road has great food. Looks like a dive on the outside but has lovely ocean view with great inside and outside dinning. Flowers everywhere...and best lobster roll EVAH!!!! Take a quick drive to chrming Harwhich Port and visit Dr. Gravitie's Kite shop. Closer to home, go to Very cool ice cream shop in a converted Old school house close by. My only regret about the trip was that we had to leave. Great memories in your home, thanks again, Paul!!! Deb and Gregg. show more show less

Wonderful Family Vacation Spot

We just returned from a wonderful week on the Cape (4 adults) and were all very pleased with the house and the accommodations as well as its location, close to the beach (walking distance), cycling path, and Chatham. The house was very clean, charming and well laid out with comfortable seating in a very light and open family room area, dining room and living room, the beds are very comfortable and we used the grill a fair bit. The owner was very responsive. Schoolhouse ice cream down the road is a must. Nice spot for cyclists. Ridgevale beach has lots of kids and relatively calm waters - great for young families. show more show less

I went to Chatham in the Spring of 1977 to attend a conference at CBI. It was my first ever visit but I immediately knew it wouldn't be my last. In June 1980 we started looking for a second home on Cape Cod--it didn't take long to decide that Chatham was where we wanted to be. After looking at numerous properties we were lucky in September of 1982 to see a newspaper ad for this house. It was love at first site--quality construction, a super fabulous location and it felt like home.

We were lucky! At that time is was a sprawling three bedroom, 2 bath all on one floor home. As our family continued growing (and getting married) we knew it was time to expand. We added approximately 2,000 square feet mostly as a second level - to include two more bedrooms and two ore bathrooms plus 2 large common rooms.

Every time I plan on going there I feel as excited as I was when we first owned it. It is a special place.

What is special about this property?
Location, location, location. Quiet neighborhood on a private road yet a 10 minute walk to the Oyster Pond and a 15 minute walk to the heart of downtown Chatham. For an after dinner stroll head down the street to Stage Harbor or walk the ''popular loop''.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable and there are 12 of them so an ideal place for your family/group to enjoy each others company yet still be able to have some private space and quiet time.

Just about a mile from the Bike trail or head in the other direction to the Lighthouse Beach.

The lot is large and has a flat area in the back for whiffle ball, croquet, corn whole or just playing tag and blowing bubbles.

This house has hosted many memory making events for my family as well as the families of numerous other satisfied tenants over the years. Sixtieth wedding anniversary, several 80th birthdays, multi-generational family gatherings with people descending from all across the country or the globe.

I had one tenant for the month of July who came back every year for 25 years until such time as her health prevented it. In her obituary it was mentioned that her most favorite place on earth was the house she rented in Chatham for the month of July.



What is special about your town?
How could you not love this town? Miles and miles of shore line, Summer Theater, weekly band concerts, Cape Cod Summer baseball league, any type of restaurant your palette desires. Don't forget golf, tennis, biking, paddle boarding and of course SHOPPING. Lots of boutiques to browse and buy. Chatham is a destination and a great place to spend your vacation.
