Description

Description

After walking by the beautiful hydrangeas and entering through the front door you will realize this house is much more spacious than it looks from the outside. From the comfortable living room with the adjoining dining area you can look into the very spacious family room with a 32 square foot picture window that overlooks the large back yard bordered by trees. The family room room also has a table for dining with a pass through window from the kitchen and a desk for those needing to keep up with things at the office. For your rainy day or evening entertainment Netflix and Amazon Prime are included on the TV.

The black and white eat in kitchen has an Electrolux wall oven, a brand new Bosch dishwasher, a Jennaire ceramic cook top, a Keurig coffee maker, granite counter tops and recessed lights.

There are two newly renovated bedrooms on this level, the first has a queen size bed and the second has two twins. Check out the nautical look. 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 or guest overflow. 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. Further, it 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.

Ridgevale Beach (10 minute walk) is very special for the way its tidal stream forms a virtual moat around the beach proper. That stream creates a stretch of sandy beach with no waves where younger children can enjoy the sand and water without the surf. Older kids can have a ball riding inflatables, going with the flow of the incoming and outgoing tides. Truly Mother Nature's Water Park.

Chatham village is a short 5 to 10 minute ride where you will find great shops, restaurants and galleries. Enjoy the quaint movie house, band concerts on the green and the popular Chatham A's college baseball. Also don't forget to hit one of the many ice cream parlors in town one of which is less than a mile from the house.

Six of the in-season weeks have already booked so don't delay. PETS CONSIDERED BUT MUST BE APPROVED

BE SURE TO WATCH THE VIDEO AT THE END OF THE PICTURES

Off season rates are VERY competitive. Also, available as a winter rental for 2021-2022

Even better than the first time!

This was my second time renting this oversized cottage and again it did not disappoint! Most important it was as clean as the first time. Knowing how close Marion's Pies was we ordered seafood pies for the football game on Sunday right from the oven. They were still piping hot when we got home.

We discovered Ridgevale beach last year and loved it. This year we walked to it daily. We were able to take our dog again which was great.

The owner of this cottage is very easy to deal with and responds to any questions almost immediately. He also uses Venmo which is very convenient. I highly recommend this rental. I think next year we will plan for two weeks vacation here instead of one! show more show less

Another great week!

This house is as shown in every photo- very clean, very comfortable and worked great for our multi-generational family, lots of room to spread out. We were so lucky to have a great week weather wise, so lots of beach time and this house has lots of beach chairs and umbrellas to use- plus yard furniture so we could enjoy the yard in the evenings. Great outside shower too! Kitchen was lovely to cook in- so bright and airy! Loved it!

We were traveling with my 92 year old Aunt who is on Oxygen and Paul (homeowner) helped us every step of the way, mainly letting us have an early arrival so we could situate my aunt. He will never know how grateful for that I was!

I would highly recommend this house and plan to rent this house again next year!

Great Rental!

This house was perfect for two small families with the layout. The separate living and eating spaces offer a lot of flexibility for our group. Living in NYC, their laundry situation was ideal! The garage fridge was very useful, and our kids loved the outdoor shower. Paul was incredibly easy to work with, the rate is very reasonable and the beach nearby is perfect for children.

We were lucky enough to meet him and his wife upon arrival (as he was managing last minute details himself) and they were both great. We would definitely rent again! show more show less

An awesome time my family and I had here, and the property is just as it is shown: clean, spacious and close to the beach!!! Paul was very accommodating in getting us in earlier than check in time and very responsive to any questions. The cottage has everything you need and is in a great area! Walk to the beach and Marion's Pie Shop! Thank you Paul for a great week!!

Wonderful family vacation week!

My two children (ages 20 and 22) and I enjoyed a wonderful week at this Ridgevale Ave. home. It was perfect for our family! We were given permission to bring our dog and had a few guests stay with us during the week. The home is beautiful and had everything we needed (even beach chairs!), and the location was perfect. It is a 5-10 minute walk to Ridgevale Beach (very nice), and a 10-minute drive to Jackknife Beach, where we brought our dog every day (dogs are allowed there before 9:00 AM and after 6:00 PM).

Paul was very helpful and easy to communicate with from beginning to end. If I knew what my children's work schedules were going to be for next summer, I would try to book a week now! Thank you!!

Great cape vacation

Charming house that can accommodate 2-3 families. We brought our 2 adult children, their spouses and 3 grandchildren and everyone fit comfortably. Inside is much larger than you expect looking at the pictures and it was a 5-10 minute walk to ridgevale beach. The beach is perfect for little ones to catch marsh wildlife like crabs and little fish and swim in ocean. Only a 10 minute drive to downtown Chatham.

Owner is very responsive and accommodating.

Off Season Winner

We re-rented for seven months during the off season, and were once again impressed with this lovely home. The location is suburb, an easy walk to the sound, lots of indoor space to spread out a puzzle or project, with a large, well maintained yard. Quiet neighborhood, yet close to town and shopping.

Paul is very responsive and pleasant to work with. You will not be disappointed. Once again I give this rental a 5 out of 5 STARS, with an extra STAR for experience with the owner.

Just as pictured!

I have vacationed on the Cape for 30 years! This year we made a trip to Chatham in a cottage new to us. On line it looked amazing and it was! The house was spacious and clean. All of the beds were comfy. Ridgevale beach was just a short walk from the home and it did not disappoint. It had a beautiful sunset. The owner was willing to negotiate with us to bring our dog. The yard was spacious and had a table and multiple chairs, including loungers. The outside shower was big for us a must, even in September! It was a well needed vacation in a perfect house in great location! The owner was very easy to work with. I would definitely rent from him again. show more show less

Plenty of room!

The house was exactly as shown in the pictures - clean, spacious, and comfortable. It's in a great location - on a quiet street, just a short walk to the beach, and centrally located on the Cape. There's an extra fridge in the garage and a lot of beach chairs to use. The side streets gave us many different places to walk our dog each day while getting to enjoy the beautiful homes in the neighborhood. We highly recommend a visit (or two) to Marian's Pie Shop!

Another vacation gone well!

This was our yearly Cape vacation with friends and family. We loved the house with plenty of sleeping spaces and a spacious backyard for the kids to run around. You can keep your bikes and beach gear in the garage. The beach is only 3 minutes away on a bike! We would love to come back next year.

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.
