We live in Maryland on a small farm were we have raised sheep, chickens, horses, hogs, border collies, and children for about 25 years. We love farming since we enjoy being outdoors and appreciate nature. Our favorite vacation spot is the beach since it is so different from the farm, and there are great outdoor activities. On vacation we like to keep busy and the Cape gives us many activities to choose from.
The Owner purchased this house in 2000
Our Captain's House has been in my family since I was young. Growing up, I enjoyed many summers searching for hermit crabs on Ridgevale beach and flying kites. When we had an opportunity, we purchased the house and now we are doing the same activities on the Cape with our children. It is like the Cape is timeless! We would love to share our home with your family... Come to Cape Cod and fly a kite! There are so many other simple pleasures for you to relive on a Cape Cod vacation.
The top five activities we include on our Chatham vacations are: 1. Going to as many Cape Cod Baseball league games as possible. The best college baseball talent is on the Cape...many players make it to major league baseball. You can say you saw them before they were major league stars! 2. Walking or biking on the Cape Cod rail trail. Short trips to Short & Sweet ice cream shop or the Chatham Airport Deli. You can take a long trip on miles of paved trails through woods, fields, by cranberry bogs, freshwater ponds, and saltwater marshes. 3. Spending the day at Ridgevale Beach. There are lifeguards, boat rentals, gift shop, deli, and porta-potties. The beach is plenty big, the water is warmer in Nantucket Sound, and there is a river that runs to the sound with all sorts of interesting sea life. 4. Visiting the Chatham Fish Pier to watch the boats come in and unload their catch of the day. Often the seals are floating in the bay also waiting for the boats to come in to get a snack. 5. Walking to Marion's Pie Shop for a coffee and Danish, then relaxing in the yard on an Adirondack chair reading the paper.
