Both the public Cockle Cove Beach & the more secluded jetty beach are a short 2-block walk from the house on a small sandy rd, safe for the kids.
This property offers incredible privacy all within an easy walk to the nearby beach. Great bird watching from the deck or at the beach, gentle breezes day and night and loads of stars on clear nights, without the lights of the city. The beach is perfect for small children as it is very shallow and the change in tide offers loads of variety for beach combing. Beach walkers will enjoy the walk all the way to a distant light house. The public beach is groomed and guarded... nearby secluded beach offers a deep hole for great swimming and a channel for floating on the changing tide.

About Merry Dahms
The property has been in the family since 1941, when the original cottage was built. This home was built in 1969, with lots of upgrades since that time. The secluded, yet convenient location is a perfect get-away. At night, the star gazing is amazing with no city lights to interfere.
Our children and now our grandchildren love to visit.
Merry Dahms purchased this house in 1980

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family has enjoyed vacation life at the Dahms' house almost every Summer for nearly 20 years. It's become like a second home for us. It's comfortable, roomy, quiet at night, and very well-equipped and convenient to everything we love about the Cape....the golf courses, the beaches and the wonderful village of Chatham. We recommend it most enthusiastically... as long as there's time left every year for us ! and I'll be there again this year !
