Welcome to captivatingly beautiful Chatham & 'Harbor View Lodge', a private sailing lodge in prestigious 'not-to-be-missed' Chatham, now a beautiful, quality, year-round vacation house. This spacious, charming, well-maintained, extra-large 19-room beach-house-style lodge is 'Family/Reunion Perfect'! The common areas are large (great room, dining room, family room, breakfast area, etc.), there are two full kitchens, and the bedrooms are numerous: ALL beds are suitable for adults or children... no bunk beds, no trundles, no undersized beds, no cots. This property sleeps 8 to 20 very comfortably. Private 1st floor suite with 2+ bedrooms, 2nd kitchen area, full bath, for general use or for additional privacy for families with young children, or grandparents. Central A/C throughout! High-speed wireless internet. All modern baths. Oriental rugs, rustic charm, beamed ceilings, wide pine floors, massive fireplace, quality furnishings... a crisp immaculate modern-classic... nothing dowdy... nothing dated... safe for young children (fully enclosed 10x30 harbor view deck, private off-road grounds). The house is very gracious, spacious, private, & fully-equipped... perfect for that special family reunion, multiple families, multiple generations, singles, couples, getaways, wedding (family) lodging, golf-outings, celebrations, executive. It is located in a wonderful safe private area for children, walks, biking, boating, swimming, clamming, surfcasting, fishing, kayaking... or just plain relaxing!

This charming yet sophisticated private beach house overlooks Oyster Harbor on Nantucket Sound, the south-facing side of the Atlantic Ocean. Child-safe beach pedestrian walkway, bike path, to magnificent Hardings Beach or to our quaint village hamlet, with shops, restaurants, ice cream, etc.. It is a beautiful leisurely stroll to both! This path also connects to the Cape Cod National Seashore Rail Trail which covers the entire Cape! Since historic Chatham is ideally located at the 'elbow' of the Cape... midway between Falmouth and Provincetown... it is the perfect off-the-beaten-path 'hidden jewel' for endless exploration of 70 mile long Cape Cod!

Hardings Beach is 1-1/2 miles long and offers two spacious white sandy beaches with warm water swimming and terrific beach combing. National Geographic Traveler ranks Hardings as the safest and 'Top Cape Cod Beach For Families of All Ages'. It is ranked as one of the top 10 family beaches in the U.S.

Sun and relax on the deck and enjoy the picturesque harbor boating scene or stroll the many peaceful and scenic backroads of Chatham.

Deeded association path to water... kayak from Oyster Harbor to town or isolated Nantucket Sound beaches... moor your boat a stone's throw away... or rent... at one of two neighborhood marinas. Bring your bikes... or rent... safe biking to the beach or bike the Cape... this is bike path country! Fall in love with the view, the beach, the area, the ambiance.

Set down by the water and nestled in the towering pines, this 3-story property at first appears diminutive... it is anything but! With ocean harbor views, numerous private bedrooms, and many large common areas, this property is the largest vacation rental in the Hardings Beach area... and one of a select few that offers the best of all worlds... quality, location, togetherness AND privacy.

The beach is a key reason many, if not most, people come to the Cape. Hardings Beach has received national recognition due to: its expansive size (over a mile in length for those long beachwalks); its beautiful dunes; its white sandy beach; its breath-taking walk to Stage Harbor lighthouse (incomparable!); its south-facing orientation for the best and longest sunny days; its location on the warmer and calmer waters of the south-face of the Atlantic Ocean, known as Nantucket Sound, the best of Cape Cod; its lifeguards; its safety for children; its ample parking (no parking problems!); its REAL bathhouses; its relatively uncrowded summers (everything is busy on the Cape but Chatham, a quaint fishing village & resort, is off the beaten path); its swimming, recreational surfing, fishing or surfcasting, kayaking, windsurfing, kite-boarding, paddle-boarding, all possible regardless of the tides, with great non-threatening waves for all ages; most importantly, no dangerous riptides and no unexpected beach closures; and, of course, its wonderful location in Chatham itself, 'Cape Cod's Most Beautiful Walking Village', the 'Nantucket of Cape Cod', known for its vibrant Town Center with unique shops, restaurants, galleries, festivals, and famous band concerts!! Not as rocky & shallow as the Bay, not as cold & rough as the Atlantic... Hardings Beach on Nantucket Sound is 'just right'.

'I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we all had at your house in Chatham last week. What a gorgeous spot! And the layout was perfect for our extended family. First-floor facilities for my mother, lots of rooms, two gathering places for large groups inside and the fabulous deck outside, a dining table big enough for all 15 of us, and room to set up croquet on the grass. Add to that perfect weather and the warm water at Hardings and we were all pinching ourselves all week. Also thank you so much for your quick responses to our questions'.

'Thank you so much. Your home is beautiful, views are fabulous and Chatham is wonderful. Wish we lived here! It's been wonderful and hopefully we'll rent from you again soon'.

'We had a wonderful time, the house was perfect, so well equipped with nice linens and towels and loads of kitchenware so it was great for our large group of 20. The furnishings and deck worked so well for a lovely beach group vacation. We couldn't think of anything we would change'.

'I just got back to town after a great time on Cape Cod. The house worked out great for us. We really enjoyed ourselves and the relaxing setting. Everything we needed was there including the lobster pot. Beds were comfortable, nice to have two kitchen spaces and refrigerators, and the dining room was spacious and comfortable (we ate at the house most evenings). Thanks for the nice bottle of wine - we opened it as soon as we arrived and enjoyed it immensely'.

Our Wonderful Cape Cod Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have decided that we are going to spend a week (or more?) on Cape Cod every summer from here on out. This was our first trip to this terrific place. Even though our large group made enough memories in one week to last a lifetime, we want more!! It's not easy to get family from all over the country to travel far and want to do it again. What wonderful family time we had at this special place - so comfortable, clean, impressively stocked and well thought out. The beds were comfy, the amenities perfect, the water view delightful, and the property was spacious enough inside and out to gather or to spread out. We loved the ocean harbor view from the deck, the national seashore beaches, fishing for stripers & blues, kayaking, biking, games in the yard, peaceful walks, and swimming at incredible Hardings Beach! All in all, wonderful! We have found our new go-to place!

Retired Best Friends Forever Had the Best Time!

  • 5 of 5

Thirteen close friends, five couples and 3 singles, decided to "splurge" on a week-long stay at the Cape... after a long cold winter we decided we deserved it! We are all retired (or semi) so we were able to take advantage of terrific off-season weekly rates. A few had never been to the Cape and were totally impressed with Chatham, surrounded by sand and sea. Long beach walks, birding, strolls through town, pubs, cozy fireplace chats, outstanding gourmet meals, song, dance and lots of laughter! This property was absolutely the best in every way, immaculately clean, fully stocked, beautifully decorated, extremely spacious. Our favorite spot was the sunny deck, looking out at the harbor, sipping our morning coffee! We couldn't have asked for more! We all feel 20 years younger! We are spreading the word to our families!

Loved Harbor View and Hardings!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this beautiful and comfortable home! Even by the day we left, we still had not visited all of the rooms! Our extended family, ranging in age from infants to 85+, had a ball! The house was immaculate and provided our every need. Highlights included a surprise theme for cooking each night (for 18!), kayaking, biking to town, and just enjoying each others' company. Hardings Beach was the BEST! Sandy bottom, big waves, lots of space, private dunes, majestic and very safe. The walk to the beach was long enough for exercise, but easy and pleasant - the drive almost nonexistent! We have already made plans to return in the future!

Very Large Family - Very Special House!

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great time! The house was perfect for our large family. Loved having 2 kitchens! The owner thought of everything! Late afternoon cocktails on the deck were wonderful with beautiful breezes and great views. And the deck was very safe for all the children. We barbecued most nights and having the 2 grills was great. The little kids played in the front and had a lovely time. We kept the boat at the Chatham Yacht Club at the bottom of the hill and did some fishing and we loved Hardings Beach. We had the best possible time!

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect weather - perfect house for our family reunion. So much more than we expected! The ideal place for our family reunion, the first time siblings all got together in 6 years - gathering from CT, ME, and FL & a wonderful bonus of 3 cousins from Germany. The house was so well stocked we lacked nothing! We also very much enjoyed Chatham. Everyone was totally impressed with the town, some describing Chatham as "right out of a movie." Our thanks to the owner for outstanding professionalism and communication. We certainly recommend this vacation home to anyone looking for a relaxing week on the Cape. We will have pleasant memories for years to come.

Family Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week together. This beach house is wonderful and well-stocked. Everything is decorated to be welcoming and very comfortable. It suited us perfectly! The two great kitchens were more than well stocked with all our cooking needs. We all took turns cooking and so enjoyed having 2 tables to serve from. It was terrific to have the advantage of a second kitchen. Our oldest daughter, husband and 3 children had their own "wing" which worked out just fine. Having the linens and towels was a bonus as some of the "gang" flew in. We appreciated the soaps and paper goods as well. Certainly the lovely bottle of wine was a nice touch and thoroughly enjoyed. We were impressed by the owner's thoughtfulness and professionalism. Our son-in-law rowed in college so he was thrilled with the use of the kayaks. We didn't see him on the beach too much! The use of all the many beach chairs, umbrellas and beach toys brought many smiles to our grandkids' faces. LOVED the view off the deck and the sounds of the singing birds. As it is another very hot day here in Virginia, I can only wish I were back in Chatham now.
