Chatham House Rental Photos and Description

4 Large Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths, Sleeps 8

Not spoiled as a child? Now's the time! It's absolutely okay to fall in love with the tranquility surrounding our Home By-The-Sea, perfectly normal! It's every bit as spectacular as its surroundings. You'll spend countless hours here pretending not to be distracted by the View. Whatever your passion, you'll likely find it here! Enjoy the elegance of cocktails served on our Deck, with dynamic Ocean vistas & color splashed sunsets; or a classic Barbecue on the lawn of our Acre lot. One thing is certain: Families love it here! Kids race through our manicured trails & excitedly head for the Dock with their crab nets. Teens love our Sports Field, Gameroom, and extensive Video Library. Guests note wonderful memories of Lobster Feasts in our Dining Room, relaxing by our superb Fireplace, and swaying back & forth on our huge Hammock amidst gentle breezes on a lazy Summer day. This truly is a place once discovered/never forgotten!

Our Home, ideal for hosting Family and friends, is situated on an invitingly tranquil Acre with Ocean Views that captivate the soul. The Quarterboard out front aptly expresses what you will experience here. It reads: Pax et Quies, Latin for Peace and Quiet. Inside you will find a beautiful and spaciously designed Home ---- featuring a brand new Kitchen designed by the premier Cabinetmaker on the Cape. Watch the shimmering colors of the Sea from a breathtaking vantage point; our Ocean View Deck has all the attributes of a Family Room with a 10,000 foot Ceiling. The interior of the Home revolves around a large Living Room with an incredible floor to cathedral ceiling Fireplace. Four Bedrooms, two on each wing of the Home, beckon weary Guests at day's end. A private Den/Computer Room is adjacent to the Kitchen. The finished Basement has a wonderful Gameroom with Library, Pool Table, Bar, Television, Stereo Receiver, and CD PLayer.


Our sprawling Acre has trails, a huge Sports Field, large Picnic Table, and a fantastic Hammock. Nantucket Sound sunsets and invigorating salt air are the norm here! Enjoy an outdoor Dinner, chase rabbits, or watch the romantic Chatham fog roll in on a Summer's eve. Stroll down to our Saltwater Dock .......... a child's paradise! Grab the crab nets and minnow traps. Launch a sailboat or kayak onto Nantucket Sound. The Dock, just steps away, is a very popular place, known affectionately to the neighbors as Buck's Creek Yacht Club. Chatham has some of the finest Beaches anywhere on the East Coast. Its position on the Cape is unique in that it is bordered by three bodies of water: Atlantic Ocean, Nantucket Sound, and Pleasant Bay. Water sports abound! In fact, you may walk to Hardings Beach from our Home. A short 2.5 mile drive brings you to three freshwater ponds. Schoolhouse Pond, located on Sam Ryders Road, is an overwhelming hit with both kids and parents! The Cape Cod Rail Trail (Biking/Walking) is a mile from our doorstep.

Our Home is a wonderful marriage of hospitality and affordability! One of the truly cherished pastimes here is 'Harvesting the Quiet'. In fact, timing Dinner so it coincides with the Ocean Sunset is practically a ritual. Maybe one of the best ways to unwind here is with a knife and fork! Locally caught Lobster is, not unexpectedly, widely enjoyed at this Home By-The-Sea. All the implements for a Lobster Feast are found here in abundance. With Family & Friends, it might be just the right time to succumb to that perfect Chardonnay! Our Home is absolutely ideal for Family Reunions, and a romantic spot to discover the restorative powers of History, Salt Air, Sea, and Sand. As a recent Guest explained, 'your Home is two parts Luxury and one part Flip Flops ...... so much is done for us as Guests, that's why we love coming here'. Words we, as Owners, cherish hearing!


At our Home, the ways to kick back and relax are as different as each Chatham sunrise and sunset, but you could get used to the drill. When was the last time you spent some quality time with you? Write yourself a U.O.U. Cap off your day with a tranquil 'Stroll in the Sand Dunes' to Stage Harbor Lighthouse along the shores of Nantucket Sound, which transforms into a liquid mirror as the evening sun falls below the horizon. Everything here is vibrantly intoxicating ----- so embrace the surroundings, delight in the moment, and let us show you what Hospitality really means! Life certainly is better at the Beach; you will get accustomed to that! The true magic of Chatham is that when you leave it, you never really do. So ....... get wet, walk on a beach that has no footprints, discover your inner Beach Bum! You're also sure to fall in love with our quaint Cape Backroads, and get totally lost - ---- but who cares? All play & no work ........ this is a problem? After arriving in Chatham, the urge to tear up your return ticket is going to be overwhelming!

The greatest Vacations begin before you get there --- with Anticipation! After all, the Perfect Getaway indeed ranks high on life's Priority List. Want a Vacation Home that loves you back? We've got one for your Family on an eminently tranquil Acre By-The-Sea. We're passionate about many things, most especially your Stay at our Home!

As the tried and true cliche points out, a picture is worth a thousand words. So, please take a moment to CLICK on the ADDITIONAL INTERIOR PHOTO Link at the BOTTOM of the ACCOMMODATION & AMENITIES SECTION BELOW. It will take you to the PERSONAL Website for our Chatham Home, and you'll find a TON of in-depth visuals of both the Interior/Exterior of the property, and the lovely seaside Village of Chatham. Not to pat ourselves on the back, but it's a great website ........ you won't be disappointed! It will, as radio newscaster Paul Harvey liked to say, indeed give you 'the rest of the story'!

Guestbook comments from the owner

A quick note to let you know we all had a super weekend staying at your wonderful house. It's always great to get someplace and, rather than being disappointed, to find something even better than one could have expected! The house is great, and we especially appreciated how clean and well provisioned it was. The concierge information was quite remarkable --- and extremely helpful. Thanks for renting for the weekend. We truly hated to leave!

Simply Inviting and Charming!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two kids spent Christmas at this spectacular house, it was all that we expected and more. The owners were very attentive to our needs, and they really make us feel at home. The kitchen had everything my wife wanted to to cook a delicious Christmas dinner. The living room is the center of attraction of the house with a huge fireplace. The views are spectacular and just a short walking distance to the beach. The house is Very Warm and inviting, we couldn't ask for a better location

The kids didn't want to leave the game room, and what a huge selection of movies.

This house is a secret treasure in Chatham, and we are taking this opportunity to thank you for renting us the house for Christmas,

Can't wait to come back, .

Thanksgiving in Chatham

  • 5 of 5

My family spent Thanksgiving week at this lovely home in Chatham. Couldn't have been better. Well, the weather could have been better...but the cold rain outside made the inside of the home even cozier! There was ample room for all of us to settle into the living room for conversation and games with a blazing fire on one side and a view of the bay on the other. Firewood was cut and stacked and ample for our 6 days there! The owner has an amazing collection (300+) of movies of all genres (catalogued and reviewed too!) that gave us some great evening entertainment as well. I was a bit apprehensive about cooking a traditional turkey dinner in a kitchen that I knew nothing about - worry was for naught as it was well stocked with every platter/utensil/pan that I needed! I had asked the owners previously about a couple of items that I would need and they quickly responded and let me know what they had and didn't have and kindly offered for me to get a bread pan that I needed and they would reimburse my cost. I guess that extra special attention and care from the owners is what makes staying at their home truly a treat! The owner supplies tons of info about Chatham for you. While we didn't eat out (other than picking up fresh lobster, cooked and cracked) from the local fish market, we did enjoy shopping in Chatham during the black friday sales, seeing the seals at the pier, touring the cape- al the way down to P-Town, and walking to the beach and lighthouse from the home. It was a great, clean and conmfortable home and overall a wonderful stay.

Relaxing Week on the Cape

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the house. The Owner's are the perfect hosts, everything is well organized and they provide you plenty of information prior to your arrival. As a result, you are immediately ready to enjoy your stay. Everything about the house was great, we barbecued, we shot pool and just got to relax.

Chatham is a perfect location, it allows you to easily drive up to Provincetown or to drive to Wood's Hole to get the ferry to Martha's Vineyard.

Simply stated, if we were to come back to Cape Cod, we would not need to search around and would stay at this vacation home again.

Our Family Tradition

  • 5 of 5

Five years ago on a late night internet search, I came across the Home-by-the-Sea in Chatham and it seemed "too good to be true!" How could this vacation rental in such a desirable location with so many amenities be so reasonably priced? As soon as I inquired, I was contacted by the owner, who was so accommodating and helpful that I couldn't resist! I still remember walking into the house for the first time and thinking WOW... we found a gem... this isn't just a house, it's a home! Now, we have just returned from our fifth visit to "our home away from home" in Chatham and I have to say that it is a major highlight of our year! Four generations of our family descend on the house in early October every year and it accommodates us all! Whether you just want to sit on the deck and enjoy the sea breezes and view, play outside in the yard, go to the dock and bird watch, plays games, watch movies or cook a great meal... it is all there for you. Not to mention that any question you have is answered in the extensive information and literature that is available to you. We have made so many treasured memories in this place and our yearly visit has really become a family tradition. My personal favorite place to go is the dock at the end of the property. Any time of day it is so beautiful and peaceful. Last year, we brought a kayak and had great fun exploring the salt marsh and even got out to the sound. The beach is within walking distance and the path that leads to the Stage Harbor Lighthouse is not to be missed. It's really a walking meditation! I remember that before we came that first time, the owner sent us a three page detailed email about all the great things to do, things to see and places to eat in Chatham and beyond. Slowly over the years, we have done many of those things and added some of our own. We really can't say enough about the is a treasure! Many THANKS to the caring owners for sharing it with us!

Our new favorite home away from home on the Cape.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home in an awesome location! When we walked into this lovely Chatham home the first thing we could see was the huge family room with the large sliding glass doors out to the upper patio/balcony. What a gorgeous view! I couldn't wait to pour myself a cold one and sit out on the balcony and enjoy the fresh air and great views! The kitchen was nicely remodeled and opened up to the dining room which was perfect for family conversations while preparing meals. The kids and grownups enjoyed playing pool in the remodeled basement and the grandkids loved watching the fiddler crabs crawl into their holes down at the docks. We all enjoyed watching movies each night in the large family room with the fireplace adding to the cozy ambiance. There were so many great movies at the house to choose from. The grandkids were also very happy with the book selection down in the library.... They couldn't stop reading! The home was clean and very well kept. Bill was extremely helpful with information about the home and all the great restaurants and attractions in the area. There are also binders in the computer room which provide all kinds of great information. We all had such a great time at this beautiful Chatham home away from home that we did not want to leave. We are so thrilled that we found it and we can't wait to come back! Regards, Mary & Ron

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had two important criteria when searching for a house to rent on the Cape; first to be in Chatham and second, have a view of, and access to water. This property met those criteria so we booked our first visit. Within minutes of entering the house we declared this home our "home away from home" and were so happy our search for the quintessential retreat was over. Our work schedules allowed for long weekends and off-season rentals that gave us a perfect venue to explore the amazing coast in and around Chatham. This rental time in combination with my focus on photography provided a unique opportunity to practice my skills and have a perfect place to work on postproduction of our daily shoots in the area. This home is spacious and accommodates our travel group providing each of us with our own space. The neighborhood is quiet off-season and from the deck we enjoy wonderful views of the water and sunsets at the end of the day.

The owner is a perfect host and provides a full range of amenities making us feel right at home. In addition, he is always looking out for new dining experiences, which he passes along to his renters as well as recommendations for events and activities. Last winter we spent a long weekend during which time a storm hit the Cape and our host called each day to make sure we were ok and was in constant contact with Pine Acres to make sure everything was perfect for us.

We have been renting this home going on three years now, and I am grateful to have found this wonderful property, which has in every way been our home away from home.
