On all of Cape Cod, Chatham is the ''hidden jewel'', a destination unto itself. Centrally located yet off the beaten path at the midpoint ''elbow'' of 70 mile long Cape Cod, historic Chatham also provides the perfect launching point for endless Cape Cod explorations...half way from here to there, half way between Falmouth and Provincetown. The house is located in a wonderful safe private area for children, walks, biking, boating, swimming, clamming, surfcasting, fishing, kayaking...or just plain relaxing. Shops & restaurants nearby.

This IS Cape Cod!

Some comments from vacationers at Harbor House:''Beautiful, spacious, comfortable & very well-appointed''...''Just what we have been looking for''...''Beautiful view''...''We love this house!!''...oriental rugs, rustic charm, beamed ceilings, wide pine floors, massive fireplace, quality furnishings...a crisp immaculate modern-classic....safe for young children (fully enclosed 10x30 deck, private off-road grounds). Very spacious & affordable for multiple families (two kitchens, no bunk beds, no trundles, no undersized beds, no cots). Boats of all sizes may be launched at public boat launch/fishing pier (<1/2 mi)..4 kayaks available for tenant use. Boat rentals may be booked in advance. Please inquire.

SAMPLE TESTIMONIAL: ''I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we all had at your house in Chatham last week. What a gorgeous spot! And the layout was perfect for our extended family. Ground-floor facilities for my mother, lots of rooms, two gathering places for groups inside and the fabulous deck outside, a dining table big enough for all 15 of us, and room to set up croquet on the grass. Add to that perfect weather and the warm water at Hardings, and we were all pinching ourselves all week. Also, thank you so much for your quick responses to our questions. Thanks again for a magical setting''. (Complete online Guestbook is available)

BEACH: The beach is a key reason many, if not most, people come to the Cape. ''Harbor House'', historically & affectionately called ''The Main House'', is the largest vacation rental in the Hardings Beach area. Sun & relax on the deck & enjoy the lively harbor boating scene. Walk, bike, or drive to Hardings Beach; with large groups, do all three. Come and go to the beach throughout the day.

Some additional information about Hardings Beach: Hardings Beach was ranked by National Geographic Traveler as one of the top 10 NATIONWIDE ''Best Beaches for Families''. The reason Hardings Beach received this high and prestigious rating over all other Cape Cod beaches, as the ''Top Cape Cod Beach for Families of All Ages'', is due to its expansive size (over a mile in length for those long beachwalks); its beautiful dunes; its white sandy beach; its lighthouse, reached by a nice scenic beachwalk to Stage Harbor; its South-facing orientation for the best and longest sunny days; its location on the warmer and calmer waters of the south-face of the Atlantic Ocean, known as Nantucket Sound, the best of Cape Cod; its lifeguards; its safety for children; its ample parking; its REAL bathhouses; its relatively uncrowded summers (everything is busy on the Cape but Chatham, a quaint fishing village & resort, is off the beaten path); its swimming, recreational surfing, fishing or surfcasting, kayaking, windsurfing, all possible regardless of the tides, with great non-threatening waves for all ages; most importantly, no dangerous riptides and no unexpected beach closures; and, of course, its wonderful location in Chatham itself, ''Cape Cod's Most Beautiful Walking Village'', the ''Nantucket of Cape Cod'', known for its vibrant Town Center with unique shops, restaurants, galleries, festivals, and famous band concerts!! Not as rocky & shallow as the Bay, not as cold & rough as the Atlantic...Hardings Beach on Nantucket Sound is ''just right.''

Book Club Retreat

Our fun loving Book Club group of 16 women had the good fortune to choose this wonderful rental home for a girls weekend getaway in beautiful, charming Chatham. It was even better than advertised and provided this gaggle of long time friends with the perfect lodgings to fully enjoy all that the area is famous for.

This group has had multiple girls weekends over many years and we’ve rented all sorts of places in locations near and far. But this rental was by far the most comfortable and spacious one we’ve stayed in. With such a large group we’ve often had to split up into 2 or more units and gathering at day’s end was usually crowded and noisy. But the layout here was made for celebrating with lots of family or friends. There are many serious cooks in our group so dinners in are always special and a memorable part of the weekend. It was so convenient to have the use of 2 well appointed kitchens near each other with plenty of fridge and freezer space. It felt so indulgent to have the space to create and serve a selection of delicious appetizers and wines. And then to follow that with a gourmet dinner menu that we all contribute to... and best of all to all eat together at the 18 foot dining table with room for everyone. It doesn’t get much better than this!

The large, open living/dining area was conducive to lots of conversation, playing party games and relaxing. The place was super clean and spacious, the nine bedrooms were quite comfortable and the five bathrooms were located in all the right places. The parking area was truly spacious and the furnishings and decor were lovely and welcoming.

On our one sunny day we were able to walk to the nearby beach, and later enjoyed lunch in an amazing Chatham restaurant and some excellent shopping in the great shops in town. On our one rainy day we decided to go to the movies en mass to see Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born. That night at dinner we all had the best conversation critiquing the movie as we dined altogether at the huge table. It was so nice to be able to have a fun, large group discussion with everyone participating!

We knew that such a great vacation spot would have a wonderful owner behind it, and Betsey proved that to be true. After we all returned home our group leader got word from Betsey that one of us had left an electronic device behind. Low and behold it was me!! I had forgotten my brand new IPad in one of the charging outlets! I contacted Betsey and she very graciously offered to promptly mail it to me. It was one of those “restoring my faith in mankind” moments and I was so grateful of her kindness and honesty.

We all agreed it was a rave worthy rental and that it was a great value as well. This place will go down as one our best rental finds!

Perfect for family/friends gathering

This property was fantastic for our reunion with 14 people. There were plenty of beds for everyone, and the layout was ideal as it funnels people into a common area where we hung out most of the time. The home was very clean, and Betsey went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable by inspecting the place prior to our arrival, leaving a warm welcome letter, and having plenty of recommendations for local activities. We had an amazing weekend and would definitely recommend this place for parties looking to de-stress and enjoying the company of family and friends. show more show less

Great place for a family reunion

This place turned out great for a group of cousins to get together, some of whom hadn't seen each other in decades. Ample room inside and out to gather in groups to catch up; ocean beach and town not walkable but very close by for easy excursions. Owner helpful and accessible. Place was clean and well-equipped.

The perfect gathering spot

We five sisters hadn’t spent this much time together since we were kids! Harbor House was the perfect place for us to reunite, and, with our husbands, to celebrate our family.

The two sitting areas gave us plenty of room to spread out, and, since it’s all about the food, having two kitchens was critical. Likewise the two coffee pots! So many bedrooms to choose from, and so many bathrooms that I don’t think I even saw them all. The spacious deck, the convenient location, and the ample parking all made for an easy family reunion.

Days were for relaxing—long walks, beach time, reading, shopping—while nights were for sampling the great restaurants that Chatham has to offer. We all enjoyed our stay so much that we have already booked for next year!

This Special House

[This home] in charming Chatham was the perfect locale to celebrate our 60th Anniversary with our children and grandchildren-13 in all. The house was warm and welcoming with wonderful spaces-a big comfortable family room with lots of seating and a large dining room where we could all converse, play games and eat. Morning coffee and late-day drinks on the spacious, scenic deck were superb. There was lots of room for togetherness and lots of room to have private time too. The two kitchens were well equipped and easy to use. It was the perfect place to make great memories!

The location made it easy to get to Hardings Beach, into town and to the dunes and Provincetown.

The owners anticipated and accommodated our needs. They couldn't have been nicer. We highly recommend this special house.

Great reunion location!

My family & I have visited the Cape for decades, but we needed a really special place for a cousins reunion, as most of us haven't been together since high school (40+ yrs ago). Harbor House was a great choice - 8 BR, 4 1/2 baths, large deck, but most importantly a large comfortable open living/dining area where all 16 of us could gather. Well equipped kitchens (tho we only used 1 - there are 2 for the really serious gourmet!) Lots of beach chairs & accessories in the basement for your use, and being so close to Harding's Beach was a nice extra.

Owner is nearby, and was very accommodating, should any issue arise.

We look forward to returning, and we highly recommend Harbor House to any large groups looking for a real Cape Cod experience!

We rented this property five years ago with our family. We had a wonderful week, and enjoyed it so much that we decided to make it ours! We feel lucky to be able to continue in the tradition of the previous owners, who created a home that's perfect for making memories to last a lifetime.
