Chatham Cottage Rental Photos and Description
5 bedrooms, 1 full bath, 1 half bath, outdoor shower, sleeps 8, large patio
'The Bluff House' is a very private turn of the century informal cottage located down a private country lane directly on the water overlooking Pleasant Bay, Nauset Beach, and the Ocean beyond. An ideal family retreat with ping pong, croquet, pier, swimming, boat mooring, and nearby golf. All bedrooms have water views and the large patio and yard offer unending summer fun. A great house for informal entertaining or escaping the real world. A home where time stands still and days float by. A short drive to town, restaurants, golf, theaters, and shopping with all the privacy of a bygone era. Fishing off the pier or chartering a boat for your stay allows the descriminating few a chance to relax only 1.75 hours from Boston.
Who best fits the house: This is a charming house for those people who want to be near it all yet able to step back to a quieter family oriented environment. This is a great beach house with the comfort that can only be found in old estate area's where property has not changed hands in 4 generations. Everything is well preserved, updated, and clean. But most importantly family's can relax and enjoy the best location on Cape Cod. The dock goes with the house and is shared by 2 family members who have houses nearby. There is a boathouse on the beach that is not included in the rental price at this time. If you are looking for a very comforatble house with unbeatable views and a location that cannot be duplicated you will not be disappointed. Walk down the path/stairs to the beach for easy access.
air conditioning: I am in the business of providing AC and have never needed it at the Bluff House. The AC that exists is a window unit in the master bedroom. There are ample fans, cross ventilation, and the evening ocean air to keep the house cool and comfortable.
games: there is croquet, ping pong that is set up in the cleaned out garage, numerous board games, puzzles, and a small library.

Guestbook comments from the owner
With the best views we have ever seen we never wanted to leave this lovely old family home. We relaxed and felt we got away from the fast paced world every time we drove down that long secluded driveway. The beach and surrounding area of Chatham had everything we needed from excursions to explore sandy islands, boating, golf, shopping, restaurants, and did I mention fishing off the pier. We caught great bass and were quick to throw them on the grill overlooking unspoiled waters and bays not found anywhere we have been before on the Cape. Thank you for letting us stay at this wonderful place.
