THE BEACH: Out of the driveway to the left past a handful of beautiful homes and an estate is the private beach at the end of Cotchpinicut. A wagon is provided to make transporting little ones and lunch easy. It has a new, large and sandy shallow area formed over the winter which is wonderful for children. Bring your kayak, or launch your small motor boat at the landing. The outer beach is right across the water, a quick 5 minute boat ride to the best beach in the Northeast. Great surfcasting on the ocean side, so don't forget your fishing poles!

Why Melissa chose Chatham

Location, location, location. Downtown, or the village, can be noisy. It is car exhaust-filled, and crowded everywhere. But up here, you have privacy, relaxation, fresh air, gorgeous neighborhoods and no noise or lights to keep you up at night if you don't want to be, but downtown is still easily accessible. Come visit soon! Make Highwood Cottage your own for a week, a month, as long as you want.

What makes this house unique

The property is on a very special street, as anyone in Chatham knows. That's why the properties here remain in families for generations. There just isn't a better area.

Beautiful House, Gracious Hostess!

  • 4 of 5
We actually caught Melissa and her son in the process of setting up the house for us. And the moment we walked in, it was evident that they took utmost care to ensure that the house was comfy including well stocked bathrooms, kitchen utilities, books, and board games.

The house is just a few paces away from the closest beach and better sandy beach at Shore Road is less than a 5 minute drive away. Even restaurants such as Longshore (great dinner!) and Lazy Lobster (lovely breakfast) and a few minutes driving distance from the house.

Melissa is an extremely helpful person and was always prompt in responding to mails, queries, and also took care of mailing back my phone charger that I had left back at the beach house.

All in all, I'd highly recommend Melissa's home if one wishes to experience a beautiful homestay and a gracious host!

Best wishes,
Sarthak and friends

Fantastic rental for our young family

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here for a week in mid-August for our annual family vacation on the Cape. After several summer renting properties through agencies and being somewhat disappointed I decided to try HomeAway. Best. Vacation. Yet. And we owe it in large part to this very clean, very homey rental. Our kids are still fairly small (4yo and 2yo) and we found the home stocked w anything and everything we needed to make the most of Chatham. Melissa's home is located in very quiet and peaceful North Chatham, yet near several new favorite food spots (Lazy Lobster for breakfast and Chatham Coffee Co. for our morning coffee fix) and within walking distant to a neighborhood beach that's quite private. And a very quick drive to the Orleans beaches our kids love so much (Skaket and Nauset).

Some of the amenities that made the trip so easy: quality bed linens and towels included, beach towels provided, a bin of yard toys at our disposal (the super soaker came in handy ;), very well-stocked kitchen cabinets full of pots, pans, knives, etc., a binder of restaurant menus w recommendation notes from Melissa. Plus, she stopped by to see if she could catch us to introduce herself and check on our stay.

I can't recommend this place enough. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this home again. Many many thanks Melissa!

Old Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5
Cottage it ain't! The luxurious comfort of this family home certainly doesn't seem like a rental; neither does its location amidst the broadly dispersed exclusive private residences. The family room was ideal for easy living while the sitting room allowed for separation from the kids. We used the screened in porch for most of our meals and for cooling off in the evening away from the A.C. The spacious grounds provided play areas for the youngsters. The calm quiet cul de sac to the beach offered security and safety for all the family. Chatham Fish Pier and the town itself were within a 20 minute walk when we chose not to drive, especially after a visit to The Squire! Friday night band concert parking was also avoided! A neighbour at the end of the avenue was most friendly and supportive. We understand he's related to the owner by marriage.
The kitchen is well equipped, We liked preparing the meals without being cut off from the family. Occasionally we used the dining room if the kids were fed earlier so that they could watch TV while we ate. The WiFi was great.
We'll be back.

Quintessential Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5
We love this house! We have a grown family of 5 and it accomodated us perfectly. It is located in a neighborhood that is quentessentially Chatham far from the fray of tourist. We enjoyed walks through the beautiful neighborhood to the private beach the house provides. We also loved our candlelit dinners on the screened porch. The house is tastefully appointed hardly seeming like a rental. The property is meticulously maintained and the owners are friendly and eager to please. We look forward to returning possibly with grandchildren where there is plenty of room for them to roam.

Our whole family loves Highwood!

  • 5 of 5
Our week at Highwood last August was perfect, and we vacationed in comfort, with beautiful furnishings, very comfortable beds, plenty of room for our extended family to move around in, and a well-equipped kitchen for preparing many delicious meals that we enjoyed there, including lobster on the roomy porch. The entire house was immaculately clean!

The home's proximity to a very nice beach was important to us, and we loved taking our early morning and evening walks on the water's edge. The neighborhood is quiet, and we met some very nice people nearby.

The owner, Melissa, is very attentive and kind, and she made sure to see that our every need was met. From the special amenities, such as wonderful soaps and lotions in the three bathrooms, to the extra gas tank for the barbeque, Melissa made sure that we had everything we needed to be comfortable and content.

My husband and I highly recommend Highwood for your Cape Cod vacation.

Chatham offers the ultimate mix of a beautiful locale with so much to do. Book a day for saltwater fly fishing with a local captain, and eat your catch the same night. Bring a new read to the beach for the afternoon, and go out to a local playhouse for the best in summer theater in the evening. Go out for an after- theater dinner at one of the many fine restaurants in town or elsewhere on the Cape. There's an art festival on Cape Cod nearly every weekend, and we have one of the oldest existing drive-in movie theaters in the country. There are many family-friendly activities also, from pirate ship cruises to quality children's theater. Public tennis courts are a bike-ride away, as is great shopping. In essence, we've got it all for your perfect vacation.
