About Richard and Eleanor Perry

We are a retired nurse and psychotherapist who have had summer rentals in South Chatham for many years and we have met some wonderful tenants over the years. We take pride in our property and check our home between every tenant to ensure that our two homes are in excellent condition when our tenants arrive. We have raised our five children with the experience and knowledge of how to maintain property and we have even roofed one of our homes as a family, thereby teaching them the skills to maintain their own homes which four of them now do.

Richard and Eleanor Perry purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Richard and Eleanor Perry chose Chatham

We feel Chatham is the most beautiful town on Cape Cod with so many fascinating things to see and do for tenants. There are fishing trips, band concerts, great restaurants, wonderful museums, charming shops, great lobster and seafood of all kinds, wonderful beaches, boat trips around teh harbor, seals on and around Monomoy Island, Chatham lighthouse, lovely churches, and the town has had excellent zoning which has maintained the charming atmosphere of the community. It is also on the list of the 10 Most Distinctive Historic Sites in the US. We love the town and felt this is where we would someday like to live in our retirement so have invested in two properties in this lovely town.

What makes this cottage unique

The Nantucket Sound beaches are on the warm water side of Cape Cod as the Gulf Stream goes by this area and out to sea at the elbow of the Cape. The fishing is excellent, the free weekly band concerts are most enjoyable, and the shopping is an experience not to be missed as the stores are charming, unique, and can't be matched elsewhere on Cape Cod. The wonderful restaurants are a delight as is the famous Marion's Pie Shop with recipes of all types that you should not miss!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our week on Cape Cod. We enjoyed visiting the beaches (especially Nauset), antique shops, and galleries. In spite of all we did, we feel rested.

Cranberry Way Cottage - Chatham, MA.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, well maintained and the owner called to make sure all was well once. The cottage was comfortable and it was very quiet in the evening which was much appreciated.

In the morning we walked to the beach which was a little over1/2 mile away. Parking was available for a fee but the walk was so pleasant we preferred walking.

There were plenty of good restaurants and places to shop within 5 to 15 minutes of this location.

Couple of suggestions meals:

DINO'S breakfast grille - good breakfast- very reasonable.

Clancey's - Dennis on Rte 6- Nice dinner menu. Reasonable prices.

Brax - Excellent brunch- on Sunday. Reasonable

Chatham - Lovely litttle town- Variety of shops- minutes away.

Marion's Bakery- try the cinnamon buns. Whoa!

The owners of this cottage were pleasant, easy to deal with and very straight forward about their expectations which were minimal and completely reasonable. I would recommend this property to friends or family members.

THANKS FOR ASKING!

Owner's Response: We very much appreciate the kind words of Ted and Nancy and hope our future renters will find our cottage as enjoyable as they did. They were delightful tenants and left the cottage beautifully for which we were most appreciative. We look forward to welcoming our future renters personally which we were unable to do for Ted and Nancy because of our grandson's graduation, a unique situation which took us off-Cape for the week. Meeting our tenants has been a lovely experience for us for the 44 years we have been renting our two Cape Cod homes. We have enjoyed the many new friendships that have resulted and look forward to many more such meetings. Our sincere thanks to all who have made ownership of our Cape Cod property a reality. We hope we will have many more years of renting to lovely people from all over the world.

Not for those with pet allegies

  • 2 of 5

We knew the owners allowed pets, but had hoped the house would have been thoroughly cleaned after the previous rental. We walked in the door to a strong pet odor, which after a few hours of air conditioning seemed to dissipate. The blue chair, chair pads, bed skirts and carpet were all covered in pet hair. So, our vacation began with me having to vacuum the entire house, which was a bummer. I called the owner to let her know we had arrived and express my concerns. I was then told that the oven did not work, but she would have someone call me to repair it. No one called and we went the whole week without a working oven. Not a major setback, but for what we paid, a working oven would have been nice. We rented a house for the convenience of being able to cook our own meals. The location was ok as it was close to the beach and bike trail. It was a bit far from town. More than the 2 miles we anticipated. Overall, we made it work. Luckily the weather was on our side, so we weren't in the house much.

Owner's Response: We had personally checked the house after the previous owners had left (as we always do) and we cleaned the house ourselves as the house had been left just "OK" in spite of the fact that we give tenants the option of either doing their own cleaning and having their cleaning deposit returned or having a cleaning service for this fee. These tenants had chosen to clean themselves but we found we had a lot to do when we arrived and we felt we left the house very clean so we do not understand these complaints. This is the first time in our 45 years of renting properties in South Chatham that we have had this type of complaint. We had just been told by the previous tenant that the oven was not lighting so we immediately called the repair service we use and the earliest they could come was a week from Monday so unfortunately we were unable to have the oven working for this family. Repair services on the Cape during the summer months are extremely busy so the company we use did the best they could do for us. We apologized to the family and explained the situation to them but apparently they were not satisfied with the explanation. When I first mentioned the oven problem to the tenants they told me it was not a problem as they would probably not be using it anyway. We are sorry they felt the accommodations were not up to their standards but we did the best we could and have had positive comments in our guest book from every other tenant this summer.

Car: necessary

Our home is on a no-outlet street which is just 0.6/mi. from beautiful Cockle Cove Beach. We are pet friendly and our home has central A/C, wireless internet, fireplace, and a flatscreen TV. It is 2 miles from the center of Chatham, a charming and scenic New England town which is one of the 10 areas in the US that have been declared National Heritage Sites of Distinction. We are near the Chatham lighthouse and the Cape Cod National Seashore, seal tours by boat in the Chatham Harbor, deep sea fishing trips and it is a reasonable drive to Hyannis or Provincetown. Chatham has wonderful restaurants as well and many unique and lovely shops. Weekly band concerts are free in the village park, and the Ohio University Players perform during the summer at their theater on Main Street and have been doing so for over 50 years. The shows (2 musicals each summer plus many great plays) are extremely well performed and Guild actors are hired for the older parts in their performances. We highly recommend these presentations!
