WATERFRONT-ON TAYLORS POND--DIRECT ACCESS TO NANTUCKET SOUND

Chatham House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (4 guests maximum please)

Located on a quiet, safe cul-de-sac, the property is sited directly on Taylor's Pond with over 250 feet of pond frontage. View the sunrise from the deck overlooking the pond. (See photos.) Taylor's Pond is a salt water tidal pond that meets Nantucket Sound via Mill Creek--perfect for kayaking, canoeing, or small motor boats. (Local vendors rent kayaks by the week. They deliver too.) The houses on the Pond are quintessential cape architecture.

Starting at the house, it's a 1/2 mile walk to Forest Beach (facing south), 2 miles to Harding's Beach (a very popular family beach in Chatham, faces south) and a 4-mile drive to the center of downtown Chatham. Access the water at the property's edge wearing your clogs or shellshoes for kayaking, canoeing or boating, From there, it's a 10-minute kayak ride to a small beach (facing south) that is reachable only by water. A pretty bike path, with a direct and easy run to Chatham center, is only a half mile away.

The house is a 4-season house with central AC and heat. There are three bedrooms and 2 full baths. The master bedroom (queen) and a second bedroom (2 twins) are on the main floor. (see photos) The bathroom on the first floor has just been completely renovated and has an oversized shower with a bench seat and a heated floor. A third bedroom (2 twins) is on the lower level. There is a ping-pong table on the lower level with games and puzzles for rainy or lazy days Property has wireless Internet , a gas grill, and a flat screen t.v. RENTAL IS FOR 4 PERSONS MAXIMUM.

A great vacation getaway in a beautiful setting

My wife and I and our two children have stayed at this home for the past two summers. It is a very comfortable and well-appointed home in a tranquil setting with all you really need to enjoy your vacation. You immediately feel a like you're on vacation as soon as you step outside and see the beautiful view of the tidal pond and wildlife off the back porch. For dining and shopping, downtown Chatham is minutes away by car or you can take the bike path and just pedal into town. The owners are also wonderful and were very helpful during our stay. This is a little gem and probably a place you'll want to return to again in the future.

Peaceful, beautiful home only minutes from the restaurants and boutiques of Chatham

We spent two glorious weeks at this gorgeous little holiday rental and really couldn't fault it in any way. It's exactly as described, spotlessly clean and well maintained. It's beautifully decorated and comfortable in every way. We spent hours watching the local birdlife on the pond and kicking back on the deck (no flies to bother us at all). It truly is a peaceful get-away-from-it-all home on the water but really well positioned for touring on the Cape and only a few minutes drive from the restaurants, stores and boutiques of Chatham which really have everything you could need and more. The owners were fantastic; attentive but never intrusive and gave us the very warmest of welcomes. Try the drive-thru cinema at Wellfleet, it's an all-American nostalgia trip and plays every night, even when it rains! And if you like art try Chatham, Wellfleet and no trip would be complete without a visit to P-Town (Provincetown) where there are more galleries than you can get around in a day. Can't recommend this rental highly enough.

Solitude and comfort

Absolutely as advertised, a wonderful house with full kitchen and every comfort. The views are sensational, the walking trails and abundance of nature simply delightful. The house is very clean and organized and well-maintained. All systems are in great shape, the house is toasty in this temperature-dropping December climate. The owners are very gracious and helpful and the house is well stocked with tip sheets, menus, how tos, brochures, etc. I would HIGHLY recommend this property to those seeking solitude and beauty, those wanting fresh air and nature, those who want nothing more than to curl up with a good book and nap during the day, those wanting to putter about the kitchen.... in other words, to any of my friends and family. I truly plan to return to this cottage on the pond to heal my body, soul, spirit.

Beautiful setting, great house

Our family of 3 just returned from an amazing week on the Cape. This house was immaculate and centrally located for all the activities we wanted. We rented a kayak and used it every day, launching it from the property. We also explored the bike trail which was a very quick ride, as was the beach. We were able to easily reach the beach by bike and kayak. We really enjoyed just being lazy around the house too! The grounds were nicely manicured and we ate on the deck with hardly any bugs. This house was great for our small family and we hope to return next year!
