Our family of twelve stayed in this home the last week of July, 2014. We had a fabulous week coming from Kansas, Washington, Colorado and Iowa. This house is in a great location for exploring the cape. It is also in a great location in Chatham, five minutes or less from the Main Street and across from Oyster Pond. I did not think the children, all twelve and older, would enjoy this pond, but they did. Of course, the ocean beaches were best. The old part of the house has been beautifully restored, and the back addition is in very good shape too. I have never rented a home with such a well stocked kitchen! In fact, there are two kitchens! There is also a fantastic gas grill on the patio. The only negative that we experienced was the sleeping situation. To sleep twelve, you have to unfold the couches every night and put them up in the morning as they are in the main living areas. I will admit that Linda told me this. It was okay, but not ideal. Despite that fact, this is a beautiful home n a perfect location, and I do not hesitate to recommend it for your stay on the cape.
