A wonderful week at the Great Gatsby

We had a wonderful week at the Great Gatsby with our large extended family. We had been apart for over a year and it was fantastic to all be together.

The caretaker - Carver- was there to answer any questions and was a wealth of information. The house itself is fantastic. If you are looking for a true Cape Cod experience to share with family, this is the house for you! Chatham and Harwich are close by and all in all the location is ideal!

Simply Splendid!

We spent 10 days at GG and hosted our daughter's Wedding Rehearsal Dinner (outdoor Cape Cod Clam Bake) - and it was perfect! Coming from Texas, it was a thrill for us, and our guests to hear stories about the history of this authentic mansion.

It slept 15 of us comfortable, and allowed us to enjoy the back lawn and deck with the gorgeous views.

John (owner) was delight, and Carver (caretaker) were the best!

Writers Paradise

We have come full circle through "Our Great Gatsby" treasure on the Cape. We stayed here when we celebrated our wedding five years ago where we learned of the amazing history of the home. Many famous writers frequented here enjoying the lavish dinners and parties of their gracious hosts. I imagine the parties often spilled out onto the extensive, well-manicured grounds. The positive energy and thoughts of its history is exciting and palpable.
My husband, who is now writing his first book had to return to the Gatsby to absorb this energy as he completed the draft of his soon-to-be best seller! The two of us stayed in this expansive and well-appointed home for another two weeks so he could write while he looked out the window and admired the yard and beautiful ocean views.
The home's caretaker, Carver, is the best caretaker any homeowner could ask for. Always going above and beyond, Carver was a blessing and ensured our stay was not only comfortable but exceptional. He anticipated questions and had the answers! He also guided us to the stores, fish markets and restaurants remaining open during the winter "off-season". Who gets this kind of service when renting a house on the Cape? Our Great Gatsby does and we'll be back again.

Great family vacation spent at Our Gatsby.

Our great family vacation at Our Gatsby was fantastic. John, the owner, was a pleasure and Carver, the care taker of the property, was so welcoming and we loved his sharing of the home's amazing history. The views of the ocean and grounds from the back deck are a great way to start and end your day. The free beach and tennis are both a short walk, bike ride or car ride away. Our Gatsby will not disappoint! We highly recommend!

Gorgeous Gatsby

I am so happy I choose this beautiful spot for our family reunion. Nine adults and nine children from age 13 to 10 months fit so comfortably in this special home. We loved the great lawn to play games, the spacious patio for our family dinners, and the lovely view of the water for our cocktails! Traveling to the beach and tennis courts nearby was so easy, even the little ones usually walked. The kitchen was well stocked for all our cooking needs and all the beds were comfortable. The weather was great for our week, but we were happy to have the room air-conditioners. Carver, the caretaker, and John, the owner, were always available if we needed them. Wonderful memories were made and we all can't wait to come back! show more show less

"Great" is an understatement! Beach with free parking down the street. 10 -15 min. walk

I wasn't going to write a review for selfish reasons. My family takes forever to make plans and I am very worried it will be booked up and we will not get to stay next year, but the Owner John and Caretaker Carver are so great I just didn't think it was fair not to share the amazing experience we had. We almost lost our dad in January -- btw if you have older parents, this is definitely the place to take them. They have not stopped talking about it since we arrived. They were calling all their friends inviting them down. The house brought them back in time. But then again if you have teenagers or young kids, this is definitely the place to be. The kids were up at night having a blast upstairs while the parents were downstairs in the master and didn't hear a peep! I loved everything about this house and every second being in it! I recommend staying here without reservation! show more show less

Fantastic vacation spot

We are an extended family of twenty who get together once a year. This year the charmer, Our Great Gatsby, in Chatham was our choice, and it turned out to be perfect for our large group! Everyone had a bed, a place around the dining room table, and a spot on the half-circle couch. The kitchen was especially well stocked with everything we needed, and the air conditioner in each bedroom was much appreciated. It was such a pleasure each morning to sit on the porch with a cup of coffee, and watch the birds and sailboats on the water! It was an easy walk to the lovely, uncrowded beach, and a brief car ride into town. This was one of our best reunions ever, and we will definitely consider returning in future years. Many thanks to both the owners and the caretaker, Carver! show more show less

Fabulous place!

We just spent a fabulous 4 day weekend here for our son's wedding. My husband and I hosted the rehearsal dinner, a lobster clambake on the lawn for 70 people. (Would highly recommend Clambakes Etc, they did a fantastic job!). We had 15 family and friends stay for the weekend. What a wonderful way to spend time together!

The Great Gatsby has a large living room, dining room and kitchen. The house was so comfortable and roomy. It was so great to all be together in such a beautiful spot. The lawn was great for entertaining, yard games and barbecuing. The views are just beautiful!

Carver, the home's caretaker, was very responsive to any questions we had. He was always immediately available. Carver shared with us many stories of the famous writers who have spent time here. So much character!

Our son's wedding was held at the Wychmere Beach Club, less than 3 miles away. We were very easily able to all Uber back and forth.

Thank you, Joan, for sharing your beautiful place with us. We had such a great time!
We will cherish our memories spent here.

We would highly recommend the Great Gatsby for any family event.

A Truly Great Vacation Spot

We stayed at Our Great Gatsby for a week for a family reunion and loved it. We had 20 people for much of the time and there was room for everyone. We even fit around the dining room table with the addition of an extra table at the end, plenty of chairs, dishes and flatware, although we were glad we had brought disposable plastic cups. The interior of the house had just been painted and the master bath upgraded, it was delightful. The living room was perfect for lounging with everyone, and the huge front lawn was put to good use by the kids. It was the perfect Cape Cod spot for our family reunion. Carver, the caretaker, was wonderfully helpful when necessary. He lives over the garage so is usually there if you need him. We highly recommend this house for large groups. show more show less

Our Great Gatsby Ceremony

My fiancee and I stayed at Our Great Gatsby with our families the night before our wedding ceremony. When we arrived, the house was warm, spotless, and inviting! The caretaker of the home walked us through each room and told us the history of the home and its first owners. He was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and homes surrounding The Gatsby house.

The layout of the house is quite charming with 9 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and plenty of space for lounging, cooking, and mealtimes... A white sandy beach is visible from the yard and multiple balconies as well as within walking distance which was definitely a bonus!

My wife and I are already planning our next trip to Our Great Gatsby home on the Cape! I would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to get away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life!
