Cannot wait to return next year!
We (myself, husband, children ages 10 and 8, and my mother) just returned home from a wonderful week in Chatham. Having rented houses in town for the past 8 years, this is our absolute favorite. This beautifully renovated home, tucked at the end of a little lane almost directly behind The Squire's parking lot, is SPOTLESSLY clean and offers every amenity one would desire in a vacation home.
Lush landscaping provides a privacy barrier from most neighboring houses. Not once did we see another car on the road and the kids felt very grown up being able to ride their bikes up and down the street all week long. Although we did not often need the central air conditioning, we did appreciate it on the one humid day we had. The house is large enough that we could spread out, so on the rainy day, everyone had his or her own space to relax. Board games and books line the built-in shelves in the family room, and the kids appreciated having a DVD player. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly all week. The owners provided a basket with information about the area, tourist books, pamphlets, etc. They also provided a "Go Green" bag with cleaning products, paper towels, dish washing liquid, etc., which we appreciated.
Several friends were also renting in town, and this property was perfect for us to gather for dinner. There are two outdoor patios and a nice yard in which the kids could play The open floor plan and large kitchen island made meal prep and socializing a pleasure.
The house is just about two blocks from Main Street, and the five-minute walk puts you in the heart of shopping and restaurants. The kids loved riding their bikes to Oyster Pond to swim, and one could walk or bike to Lighthouse Beach, the baseball field, and most other Chatham attractions. If you wanted to leave town, you could easily avoid the traffic on Main Street and at the rotary by taking back roads.
The generously sized master bedroom and bath provided a tranquil retreat. The second bedroom had two twin beds and a bathroom with a nicely sized shower. To get to the extra room/third bedroom (twin bed with a trundle), you could either pass through the twin bedroom or ascend the steep second stairway that leads up from the family room. There's a small t.v. with cable in this extra room/third bedroom.
The owners were friendly and communicative and made the rental process a pleasant and smooth one. We hope to return for years to come and we highly recommend this property
