Chatham Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4, open LR/DR area, all on one floor
We own two 2 BR cottages (#194 & #200) on same waterfront lot, which may be rented separately (each sleeps 4 guests), or together to create a 4 BR family & friends compound sleeping 8 guests.
Both waterfront cottages have been newly-renovated inside and out; provide large decks and shaded patios with amazing bird watching & scenic views over tidal Taylor's Pond; share our private dock for boating and kayaking; and are an easy 4/10th mile walk or bike ride to Cockle Cove beach. The cottages have gleaming hardwood floors, a light “beachy” décor, renovated bath with kohler fixtures, ceramic tile & tub/shower combination, a large private outdoor shower, a bright open living/dining floor plan, well-equipped kitchen, one bedroom with a queen and one with two twin beds and a partial basement for storing bikes, kayaks and other large gear. Full sized washer and dryer in basement of #194, which has off-street parking for 2 cars, and is accessible for seniors or those who have difficulty with stairs. Lower cottage (#200) has parking for 2-3 cars, and is also readily accessible.
Taylor's Pond is an ancient “kettle pond” that has been connected to Nantucket Sound by the sea. It has tidal salt water and supports amazing seasonal bird populations, including herons, egrets, ospreys, king fishers, geese, etc. Striped bass and blues visit on the spring and fall high tides to chase schools of bait fish. You can kayak, canoe or boat in the pond from our private dock; or connect through the Mill Creek channel into a large estuary/marsh and out into Nantucket Sound.
Cockle Cove Beach (a short 4/10 mile walk or ride down the hill) is one of Chatham's best town beaches with no stairs & easy accessability, expansive room for jogging/beachcombing; warm, calm & safe swimming; and clamming & surf casting.
This great South Chatham location provides safe, quiet 'away from it all' ambiance, but is within 10 minutes' drive of the best shopping, dining and local club venues in Chatham & Harwich and exit 11 on the mid-Cape hwy. On the Cape's 'elbow,' it is 30-40 minutes from the bridges as well as Hyannis, the national seashore and P Town.
