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.
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 bedrooms on this level, the first has a queen size bed and the second has two twins. (These two bedrooms are currently undergoing a redecorating with new window treatments, nautical bedding and fashionable grey walls). 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. 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 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.

Any rentals before July 1, 2019 will not be subject to the 12.45% newly enacted Massachusetts Short Term Rental Tax. Any rental commencing on or after July 1, 2019 is subject to the new 12.45% short term rental tax.

Off season rates are VERY competitive. Also, available as a winter rental.

Great Week!

Our family including our westie had a great week at this home. It was an easy walk to the beach, close to the bike path, and Main Street Chatham. We enjoyed the outdoor grill and the outdoor shower! The house was clean and very well equipped. Any questions we had were answered promptly by the owner.

Wonderful place for a relaxing vacation

We are 3 ladies that come to the Cape every summer. We just fell in love with Paul’s house. There is so much room, it is so nicely appointed and so clean and well maintained . We love the beautiful, big, bright sun room . We spent many hours there. The house is well located to hit all parts of the cape. We would highly recommend it.

Chatham Charmer

What a pleasant experience we had renting this Chatham Charmer off season. Pride of ownership is evident in the the meticulous care the homeowner takes in caring for this ranch. The grounds are professionally maintained, the inside is fresh and bright, bedrooms have been recently painted. The home is comfortable and welcoming. Paul is a joy to work with, very responsive to any question or concern. The house was very toasty during the winter months, and we especially appreciated the heated garage. Can't beat the location if you enjoy a short walk to the Nantucket Sound beach. Thank you, Paul and Marion, for a lovely stay. show more show less

Very nice cottage that had everything we needed for a great family vacation in Chatham. House seemed larger than the pictures showed and there was plenty of room for 3 couples and the kids. The owner Paul was friendly and attentive and in fact called to say we could check in early when house keepers were ahead of schedule. We took several walks down to Ridgevale beach through out the week, sometimes in the morning and other times just before sunset. Great place to relax and enjoy Chatham! Would definitely stay there again. show more show less

Sweet spot for family vacation

We have rented this house for a week every summer for several years now. The house is larger than it looks from the outside and is perfect for our family of six. Great location—easy walk to the beach and the bike trail. Central air is appreciated on humid days! Quiet at night; good distance from the neighbors and good WiFi. All-in-all, a great spot.

I did a lot of research on where to stay for our visit to Cape Cod. We are a married couple and had 3 adult children with us. This house was perfect for us! It is close to so much, yet felt very private and on a wonderful little street that was not busy. A short walk to a beautiful beach and a short walk in the opposite direction to a wonderful pie shop! This house is close to Chatham, which we just loved that little town! The owner made everything very easy for us, and he was very responsive during the booking process. Lots of wonderful tips right by the back door. There are plenty of bed options and the beds were VERY comfortable. We loved playing games at the game table in the back living room. We were very happy with this house and it's location! show more show less

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.

Clean, well maintained, very comfortable and room for everyone to be comfortable. The short walk to the beach was a pleasure. Grandsons playing ball in the backyard was fun. Would return

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.
