ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER LOCATIONS IN CHATHAM!
Close to Lighthouse Beach and town. (See map)
This unique house, rarely rented outside the family, has been enjoyed for generations by the same family since it was built in 1911. The house comfortably sleeps up to thirteen people in seven bedrooms. There is also ample living space for a large group to spread out in. A large, eat-in kitchen; a huge porch; a living room; a downstairs family room with television, sitting area, and table and chairs; together with small desks and chairs in most bedrooms provide a variety of living spaces.
Located across the street from Lighthouse Beach and about a mile from the quaint, delightful town of Chatham, this house couldn't be in a better location. Guests enjoy walking to the beach or to town, and the large yard is not only great for outdoor games, but offers an elaborate swing set that's shared with an adjoining property.
The property not only has historical interest and charming character -- including original claw-foot bath tubs, an in-room sink in the master bedroom, a wrap around porch with rocking chairs, and the original wooden paneling throughout -- but also features a fully renovated eat-in kitchen with two ovens, a large fridge, a separate beverage fridge, a separate ice maker, microwave, and dishwasher. There is an additional fridge in the basement along with a washer and dryer. A separate pantry connecting the kitchen and dining room offers a wet bar with a large sink.
In addition to three full baths and a downstairs powder room, there is a large, fully tiled shower in the basement by an entrance from the back yard -- so you can easily come in directly from the beach and rinse off. There is no heat or air conditioning, but the bedrooms have window fans and there is a big, wood burning fireplace in the living room -- with wood provided. And if you enjoy barbecuing, there's an outdoor gas grill with propane provided.
Whether your preference be relaxing on the porch enjoying an ocean breeze, hitting the beach, or exploring the restaurants and shops in Chatham, this house offers the perfect location to do it all!

We were absolutely thrilled to be at Windward again this year. It is just perfect for our family spanning 3 generations, and everyone had a marvelous time. The yard is so wonderful for all the children and we had a wonderful reunion with cousins who also spend the week in Chatham. The two cousins would arrive each morning at 9 and join in the fun. The older boys (2 are 13) spend a month prior to our visit to planning each sport for an Olympics and divided everyone in to two teams. Don and I were to be the judges. The competition included beach events, yard events and ping pong as well as a hoola hooping contest. We, of course, want to come back and hope that we will have the chance to spend another wonderful week at Windward. Thank you for helping us to create memories.
seal watch & whale watch tours available; nearby ferry to Nantucket & Martha's Vineyard; water taxi to outer beaches also available nearby. Full visitor info notebook available at the house.
