Great private retreat, with easy access to Chatham
Spent a week in August with our two kids (age 7 & 5) and their grandparents. The house was perfect for a group of 6 with the cottage providing a little privacy a few steps away from the main house. It is on a very quiet gravel road, and you might spend the whole week not seeing any neighbors. The house is well stocked with linens, dishes, pots/pans. We didn't need to interact with Heather often, but she was always very quick to respond to any questions.
It's a very short (<5 minute) walk to a large swimming pond, and canoeing/fishing right from the house's dock on a smaller pond. We caught tons for small yellow perch, and half dozen or so 12 inch+ bass! We were also frequently visited by a massive turtle, Big Al, which the kids loved to feed.
Very convenient to Chatham and nearby beaches including Oyster Pond and Cockle Cove which were perfect for the kids. We will be back in the future!
