Beyond my expectations!!!

The minute I walked in the front door, I knew I was going to love this cottage! The owners have done an amazing job of providing everything & more that you need. The location is superb for walking to town. My favorite morning spot was outside, sitting at the patio table, and drinking my coffee. Same with evenings for cocktails!

There are so many shops and restaurants nearby but yet you will feel like you are in your own private oasis. Short car trips will take you to many other wonderful places & beaches. And, the bed!! Best sleeping I've had in ages. Yes, this place is magical! Can I give it 100 stars ?? show more show less

A Little Bit Of Chatham Paradise

When my wife and I could no longer book the Chatham property we'd rented for years because the owners took it off the market, we went searching for a new place. Price, of course, was a factor in our search, as was proximity to downtown. Margie's place checked both those boxes well. Could not have been a better fit for us.

Everyday for a week we walked to downtown for a morning bagel and coffee/tea. Many days we walked back down later for an ice cream cone and/or supper. We rode our bikes 5 times, and because the house is centrally located, we could do a bike route that took us through the picturesque side streets, downtown, and along the waterfront. . .

The pictures are a very accurate depiction of what you'll get, i.e. the cottage is charming, handsomely furnished, and had more than enough space for the two of us. . . I have intermittent back problems, but the mattress was supportive and comfortable, and not only did my back not bother me for our week's stay, but I slept like a contented log. My wife actually slept better at Margie's than she does back home. Maybe it was the mattress, maybe the sea air, maybe just the peacefulness and quiet of being in the cottage . . .

Veterans Field is across the street, maybe 200 yards away, and we walked over 3 evenings to watch Chatham Angler baseball games. The Anglers play in the Cape Cod League, and it's a high caliber of baseball that's free, well attended, and enthusiastically supported by the community. It was a pleasure to be able to walk to those games, and to various other points of interest for us. Finding a parking spot in downtown Chatham isn't always easy. . .

We didn't walk to the beach, though the small beach at Oyster Cove is a fairly easy walk. As far as beaches go, we prefer Hardings and Cockle Cove, which are 7-8-9 minutes away by car. We bought a beach pass for the week ($75), which is good at all Chatham town beaches. A one day pass is $20. We used that pass all 7 days, and hence it turned out to be a great bargain. . .

The only problem we had was with the cable and WiFi which were fouling up when we arrived. I contacted Margie, she phoned Comcast (the provider), and I unplugged the modum and router. Then plugged them back in. Comcast hit a reset, and voila! problem was solved. The quality of the cable picture and the internet speed was excellent. . .

Dave, the next door neighbor, is an invaluable source of information, and he's a most entertaining, as well as a very helpful, person. It's a friendly neighborhood. . .

All-in-all, we had a great week, and will certainly consider staying again at Margie's cottage. It was a bit of Chatham paradise for us.

Cozy and Convenient!

We booked this adorable little cottage just to break the monotony of working from home. The location is perfect for those who want to be close to everything. It was a 2 min walk to Main St. shops in Chatham, 3 min to the little cove and beach and right across the street from a delish little spot for breakfast and lunch. Very convenient to Lighthouse Beach and the Pier (~1 mile walks). The cottage itself is filled with great light, has outside seating and every amenity to enable you to enjoy cooking a meal there if you didn't want to avail yourself of the local restaurant offerings. If it had been a little warmer, we surely would have appreciated the outdoor shower as well. The owner was extremely helpful with information and recommendations as we prepared to arrive and we look forward to a return stay!! show more show less

Perfect getaway

We stayed at the Charming Chatham Village Cottage and had a very pleasant stay. The owner Margie communicated via email and phone and her instructions were precise and her recommendations were on point. The cottage fits 4 people comfortably. It has the best washer and dryer I have ever used. I liked its decoration and the whimsical lamps. It was clean and organized. We went to a couple of beaches and walked to the town. A diner for breakfast was across the street. Other restaurants were a short drive away. Margie approved our dog to stay and he also enjoyed himself. Chatham is a beautiful place. show more show less

The Perfect Getaway

Margie's cottage was ideal for us on every level. The location is simply perfect - a 5 to 10 minute walk to everything. And the amenities in the house are exactly as they seem in the profile. Margie was/is a very attentive owner and extremely thoughtful, making it a pleasure to stay at her house. All of us (myself, wife, daughters and dog) loved the place and look forward to coming back in the future.

Perfect Getaway

We are already looking forward to our next stay at Margie's house! The location is so convenient for walking to town and walking to the beach, we hardly had to use a car during our week here. The house felt very clean; we loved using the kitchen and grill to cook some of our own meals. Can't wait to come back!

Wonderful Home in a Great Location

My husband, son, and I (and dog!) really enjoyed our stay. The home was well-appointed and spotless. The ability to walk to town was great, and we enjoyed being minutes from the beach and restaurants. Margie was also great to work with.

Perfect Spot!

We have been staying here for the past three summers and can't say enough good things about it! Its in the perfect location to take in the best of Cape Cod in the summers. You can hear the Cape League games from the patio, you are walking distance to Chatham Bars Inn and everything downtown. The cottage is very well kept and has everything you need, a washer dryer, outdoor shower, and cable/internet. Margie is very responsive with any issues that come up and resolves them immediately. We highly recommend this cottage! show more show less

Quiet Cottage With Best location!

We spent two weeks at Margie's cottage. You can tell she strives to please her guests and made the cottage as comfortable as can be. I have food restrictions so being able to cook meals was a huge part of our trip. The kitchen is well equipped and updated to suit all your needs. The bathroom provided shelving for all toiletries, a new vanity and updated shower. Having a washer and dryer is also a huge plus when away for two weeks. My husband, toddler, and I loved being able to walk to town concerts, shops, dining, fish pier, playground, Oyster pond,… Basically all Chatham has to offer! This is why we chose Margie's cottage! I walked several miles every morning along the shore road, staring out at the ocean and embracing Chatham's natural beauty. We didn't sit outside much, but I enjoyed coffee in the morning listening to the birds and soaking up the sun and fresh Cape air. We were very lucky as we had 12 days of sunshine, and only two inclement weather days. Having to stay inside all day may have proved difficult with a small child as the space/TV options are limited. We utilized the town library for play time and rented dozens of DVDs. Margie is always available to communicate. You can tell she strives to make the cottage the best vacation experience for renters. Thank you for a wonderful Chatham vacation! show more show less

I have owned this property since 2011. I loved Chatham so much that when this property was mine, I knew I wanted to share its awesome location and quaint, cozy cottage appeal with other people who ''need a vacation''! For those of us that ''work too much'', it's time to take care of yourself with a little get away! You'll appreciate that this is my second home and not a ''big business'' where you are just a number. I truly appreciate everyone who can share and stay in this little oasis on ''the elbow of Cape Cod''. You will find it clean, welcoming, relaxing and I promise .... you won't want to leave! Please see our 5 STAR reviews!

What is special about this property?
Location, location, location! What can be better than a ''home away from home'' where you can listen to the birds while enjoying morning coffee/tea, be a ''townie'' an appreciate all that is Chatham, walk to the town/beach, locally shop your heart out and end the day with a fabulous dinner in one of the incredible restaurants in Chatham? Maybe you just like to grill and go to bed early then sleep in ... it's all possible at this sweet spot of a house down our shelled walk way. This is where you can destress, decompress, have some fun/adventure and breathe in the salty air! Kiddo and pet approved as well. Most of our renters have enjoyed the cottage before.

What is special about your town?
Chatham is one of the favorite towns on the Cape! You could not drive at all the WHOLE week(s) and still have a wonderful time. The location of the Cottage makes everything ''easy access''. You're in the center of it all for bopping around the Cape to explore everything salty and adventurous and .... to let your kid spirit of fun out!
