We're just a 3 minute walk to the Rotary - walking distance to practically everything you need to design yourself the perfect vacation! Beaches, Main Street shops & restaurants, Chatham A's baseball games, watch seals play at Chatham Fish Pier, golf course, tennis courts, bike rental shop & the path are all RIGHT THERE. Quality speaks words! Our home Master bedroom has a queen size PranaSleep mattress and the 2nd bedroom has a full size mattress. Other amenities include a modern bath, Electrolux washer & dryer, dishwasher, flat screen television, WiFi, cozy living /kitchen combination with custom kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops, wood floors, cathedral ceilings, skylights, central air conditioning, French doors open to a shell patio, outdoor shower and 2 parking spaces. Across Old Harbor Road is the Chatham Filling Station for breakfast and the Chatham Fish & Chips for a convenient eat in or take out lunch or dinner! Our quiet neighborhood offers serene evening walks to the beach, Fish Pier and into town, walk two streets over to Chatham Bars Inn for a sunset drink on the Inn's veranda or go hear some music at the legendary Chatham Squire restaurant and bar! We personally, HATE to leave ... so we share it! :)

This clean cozy cottage is set back from the main road in a private oasis of peace & quiet overlooking private woods & wetlands. It is a delightful place to stay as it is tucked away from the hustle and bustle crowds of the summer, yet it is steps away from everything you will need to make your vacation a fun-filled week. Repeat guest approved!

Please note that we are not on the road and have a ''long-ish'' walkway to the house. If you are not up to an un-even shelled walkway - we think ''so Cape Cod'' - you may have trouble walking. You may think it's ''it's a hike''. Please watch our video to see the short walkway and know if it is for you.

Our cottage welcomes well behaved pets - just let us know in advance so we can prepare for your pet's arrival. ($175 pet stay. So much better than boarding and having your pet come home ''skinny and stressed'' .... I've been there!!!)

Enjoy the off-season with the energy efficient, central air, heating system. Linens - this doesn't include beach towels, by request ($50 use and laundry fee), provided May-October. Relax - your house cleaning is included! High speed internet and cable offered from May-October. You can work ''from home'', if need be.

    Quaint, perfectly located vacation cottage!

    We have been coming to Chatham for 7 straight years now and this was the best location of all of the places we rented. Easily walkable to downtown, oyster pond and across the street from the Anglers' games. The 2BR was quaint but fit our family of 4 just fine and was pet friendly so we were able to bring our dog! Margie was very easy to get a hold of and was responsive to all of our requests and questions. Tho small, the house was well equipped and up to date with comfy beds, outdoor shower and very convenient washer and dryer. We had a great time! show more show less

    Chatham Cottage

    I have been renting on Cape Cod and this cottage was by far the BEST! Cozy and comfy, walk to Fish Pier for scallop dinners, walk to Captain's Table or diner across the street every morning for my mimosa and eggs benedict. Walk to baseball games.
    It was listening to church bells, singing birds - it's heavenly. Cottage was perfect, so clean. Can't wait to book this gem again!!

    Impeccable cottage

    We enjoyed everything about our stay. Here are few highlights:

    The location was wonderful. The Chatham shops, Oyster Pond, and the Chatham Bars Inn were easily walkable. Lighthouse Beach was easily accessible by bike.

    Everything in the cottage worked well. No bad surprises. Margie's pre trip instructions and tips were extremely helpful and most appreciated.

    You can tell that the cottage updates were done with high quality furnishings and materials and with very good taste. The cottage was cute as heck, and we felt very much at home. show more show less

    At the center of it all

    My sister and I, along with furry companion, Willoughby, enjoyed a wonderful week in a comfortable and very private setting that was relaxing and restful. You can sit outside and not see anyone, place was very quiet and very secluded. But the very ''special characteristic'' of our lodging, was a brief walk into down town chatham where all sort of fun activities awaited, from shopping and restaurants all within 5 minutes! We even had breakfast walking just across the street from our rental! It's a perfect combination of being away from the hustle and bustle and yet, within minutes, you are in the center of it all, enjoying the streets of chatham. I recommend this rental highly and will return. show more show less

    Chatham Cottage

    Margie was a great host, the cottage was charming and clean when we arrived. The location was perfect for a short walk downtown or to the baseball games. The cottage had many new updates including a new outdoor shower which was great to use after a day on the beach. We have been coming to Chatham for the last 15 years and wouldn't hesitate to rent the cottage again.

    Another Perfect Chatham Vacation

    We returned to Margie's cottage in 2022 for the second straight year. As wonderful as our stay last year was, it was every bit as good this year - perhaps even a little better as regards the cottage itself. For starters, this year we were allowed to drive right up to the front door, which not only helped with the unloading and loading, but was also just generally more convenient (though the distance between the previous parking space and front door is only about 40 yards). In addition in 2022 there's a new and handsome outdoor shower, new living room furniture, and a new queen mattress. Note: The mattress is very comfortable and fully supported my bad back. But it's also very thick so our fitted sheet would not "fit." We should have brought 2 regular sheets. No big deal.

    We dined at all our usual favorite places: Chatham Squires, Impudent Oyster, Del Mar, Brax Landing, Captain's Table, Chatham Fish and Chips (across the street), The Filling Station (also across the street), and one new place for us - Sweet Tomatoes. We got takeout from the latter and it was superb (margherita pizza, meatball parma calzone, and a Cobb salad)! To nibble on we also picked up a bag of chocolate chip cookies and a number of breakfast sandwiches (best around) from the Chatham Village Market. Go early for the breakfast sandwiches; they sell out fast. We also got pastry from Marion's Pie Shop, which is also the best around. . .

    We went to the beach everyday. Hardings is our favorite, but we also went to Oyster Pond (small, quiet, less windy, less wavy, walking distance from cottage) and Cockle Cove. At night we went to 3 Chatham Angler baseball games. The field is right across the street, about 200 yards away. Nothing better than Cape Cod League baseball, even for people who are not baseball fans (which my wife isn't). We also took in a couple of movies, one at the Cape Cinema in Dennis and the other downtown at The Orpheum.

    Our days always started with a morning walk, which brought us downtown where we had our coffee/tea at a different location everyday. The only thing that went wrong was that on Day 3, after negotiating the keyless cottage entry without any problems for the first two days, we had a problem. The fault was entirely ours (a prolonged senior moment), and when we phoned Margie she was completely helpful and understanding. Like I said, the fault was 100% ours, and Margie's graciousness was a positive and appreciated plus to the whole panicky incident.

    All-in-all, our week's stay could not have better to include the sunny weather. Chatham is a great small Cape town, and Margie's cottage is the perfect place to experience it from.

    Paul, thanks for the in-depth and gracious review! So glad that you had another super stay at the Cottage. We love Chatham too .... so much to do and see and always salty like we like it!!! No worries on the keyless entry .... it's our modernization to avoid an actual key that may take a few tries but once you get it, you get it! :) Once again, so happy that you enjoyed your Chatham time with the beaches, town, restaurants, movies, baseball and down time to relax at the house! Wow, you got a lot done! Glad to have you back!show moreshow less

    Excellent week in Chatham

    Stayed in this beautiful cottage the first week of June and it was purely relaxing.
    The patio outside the French Doors was enjoyed daily.
    The cottage was bright and all amenities were taken care of.
    We really enjoyed our daily walks to the Fish Pier and downtown close by.
    Will love to return again.

    A Sweet Stay

    We stayed in Margie's adorable cottage for a week and enjoyed ourselves throughout. You know what they say: "Location, Location, Location." This cottage is just a couple of blocks from Main Street, Chatham which is bustling with unique shops and restaurants. The sky-light-lit kitchen and living room area are a bright spot (to say the least). The mattress in the master bath is comparable to none; never had a better night's sleep.

    Because Chatham is at the 'elbow' on the Cape, we were able to use it to sightsee in either direction from Falmouth (have LUNCH at La Cucina on Main St., Falmouth. Get the mussels (20) and shrimp over linguini for $18 that will last you three nights!).

    The tourist booth in Chatham (manned by Louise) told us of two places that are rarely mentioned to tourists: The Visitors Center in Eastham which shows 5 different movies every 15 minutes, a great museum and has a lovely gift shop (great for kids too) - FREE. The other place is at the Library in Provincetown where a giant ship (replica of 150 years ago) has been built - right in the center of the Library - it's on the second floor. But if you take the elevator to the third floor you can actually look down into the entire hull of the ship. There are also guided sound video for visitors to hear and see the history on a running tape.

    Margie prepped us as to many links of interesting and fun places to visit among which were listed exciting tours to be taken such as the Dune Tours in Provincetown. They weren't running yet when we were there so we took a trolley tour instead.

    Stay at Margie's charming cottage and you won't be disappointed.

    Lovely cottage

    We had a wonderful week in Chatham. We walked everywhere and enjoyed the comforts of the cottage. We loved the openness and light. The kitchen has everything you need to make whatever meals you need. We also walked many places in town, Light House Beach, the labyrinth, the shops, restaurants and more. The bed was very comfortable as was the living room with a great couch and chairs. We felt very much at home. Margie is so helpful with everything, thank you Margie. We plan to return.

    Sounds like you had a super vacation, Cathy! We strive to keep the Cottage a comfy home base for whatever tenants want to do and exploring the town on foot is awesome! And, nothing beats relaxing in a bright little home! Glad that you liked the furniture!

    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'' and 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!
