CHATHAM VILLAGE - LOVELY 2 BR APARTMENT IN ANTIQUE HOME

Chatham Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Ship’s Light has looked down Cross Street to Chatham Village Center for more than 180 years. Built and occupied by some of Chatham’s most eminent residents since 1825, it was converted to four housekeeping apartments for summer visitors circa 1945. Lovingly restored by long-time current owners, this gracious antique home offers modern comfort and convenience with the character and charm of a bygone era.

The Gifford Buck apartment--the largest of the four apartments--is a comfortable first-floor, 5-room, 2 bedroom, 2 bath gem. Airy and light, the large living room with working fireplace and wide-screen TV occupies the center of the house. The dining room seats 8 and connects to a charming full-sized kitchen with a small breakfast table--or eat and relax on the quiet back porch or side yard with picnic tables and area seating. Two air conditioned bedrooms--one with a queen-sized bed and one with two twins--and two full baths make this apartment perfect for a family. One of the bathrooms also includes a washing machine and dryer. The charm of the apartment is further enhanced by the warm glow of beautifully refinished, wide pine, antique floors and wainscoting.

Centrally located within a short walking distance of excellent Chatham dining, shopping, movies and band concerts, the house is three blocks from the town salt water beach on Oyster Pond, and one mile from Coast Guard Beach, a great stretch of Atlantic Ocean and dunes. Many individuals, couples and extended families consider Ship’s Light their vacation home. We invite you to join them in making your vacation something special.

The Gifford-Buck apartment at Ship’s Light is rented from Saturday to Saturday during the summer and shoulder seasons and by the week or weekend during the off-season. Other units with unique features are also available and the whole house can be rented as a 5-to-6 bedroom home for family gatherings. Contact the owner for details.

About Allison Coleman

The Coleman family has owned and loved Ship's Light since the mid-1970s. Like several owners before her, Lena Coleman lived at Ship’s Light year-round and rented its apartments to summer visitors. After she passed away, Bill, Roz and Allison Coleman undertook successive renovations and updates to the property, continuing to rent it during the summers to long-time friends and new guests. It has been a labor of love to work on this lovely house over the decades and it evokes in us strong memories of the generations that have come before us; in their honor, we have named each apartment. Lena, like others before her, looked forward to the summers when her long-time renters would return to visit, bringing with them stories of their winter months and great friendships built over many years; we are proud to continue this hospitable tradition in the heart of Chatham.

What makes this apartment unique

Located on a quiet street just off Main Street, Ship's Light is perfectly located and convenient to everything. You can walk downtown to shop in Chatham's great stores, enjoy a meal at a great restaurant, get ice cream, see a movie at the recently-restored Orpheum Theater and attend Friday night Band Concerts; short walk to the public library and Methodist, Episcopal and Congregational churches; Chase Park and the grist mill are right around the corner; Oyster Pond (a nice swimming beach) is a short 1/4 mile stroll; the Atlantic Ocean is about 1 mile away. Visitors love to sit and read on the porches and decks overlooking Cross Street and Shattuck Place; from these private perches you can put your feet up and watch the world go by.

Prime location in Chatham

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in the Gifford Buck apartment at Ship's Light for years. Improvements have been made which make the apartment better, including a new fridge, twin beds in one of the two bedrooms, wifi and updated furniture. The location to Main St. Chatham and its wonderful stores and restaurants couldn't be better and the venue has BBQ's, outdoor eating areas, laundry, parking and bicycle storage aplenty.
The only caution I would give to prospective renters is that unless you have very quiet and considerate upstairs neighbours or are a heavy sleeper, you might be disturbed from time to time, morning and evening, by other renters in the house. The stairs to the upper rental units go right by the Gifford Buck apartment bedroom windows and it is likely that the upstairs renters do not realize that when arriving late at night or leaving early in the morning.
This is a beautifully maintained old sea captain's house, which won a preservation award 5 years ago, and it's central location and fair pricing are exceptional.

Wonderful visit!

  • 4 of 5
We had a fantastic time staying in the Gifford-Buck apartment at Ships Landing. It was our family's first time in Chatham, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.
With two children under 3, we were happy to have plenty of space to spread out all their gear and toys. The place was very clean, and having a washer/dryer in unit was nice as well.

We had a great time and can't wait to return next year!

Charming

  • 5 of 5
Our family of three stayed in this charming apartment for a week. We found it extremely clean and well kept. The kitchen was well stocked, and the towels and linens were a very nice touch. The high speed Wifi was great for a family with four devices, and while we didn't use the washer and dryer, having a dishwasher was great. If we hadn't brought our own books, there is a bookshelf stocked with all different kinds of books for all sorts of readers. It's just a short walk to Main Street, with tons of shops and restaurants and even a small movie theater. Oyster Pond is close by as well, but we chose to drive to Harvey Beach, less than 10 minutes away, for our beach experience. We also visited the windmill in the park at the end of Cross Street. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing week in Chatham.

This home is so close to town! Our group rented both apartments on the first floor and had plenty of room for six of us. The living room and dining room are cozy and spacious, but the kitchen needs to be cleaner. The coffee maker looked like it hadn't been cleaned out in a long while. We ended up going out for coffee The teapot is ancient as well. I was unable to use the whisk, it was rusty! The owners should consider replacing the refridgerator, its rusty exterior discourages storing food. Although sheets and blankets were provided, I would suggest bringing your own, as well as pillows. The sheets, blankets and comforters were very old, worn, and somewhat stained. Thank goodness for Ocean State Job Lot!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback; we’re sorry you weren’t 100% satisfied with your stay. A couple of comments: the apartment was cleaned carefully before your arrival. We also checked in with you after your arrival to make sure everything was okay and we were told that it was. Renters can always call us on our cell phones if there is anything amiss.

Your stay was at the very end of the year. Between seasons we carefully go through each apartment and make needed repairs and upgrades and replace worn or broken items. We appreciate renters letting us know if something needs to be replaced. The bedding is not old; unfortunately, the dryer malfunctioned this summer, depositing small spots on sheets and towels. The dryer has since been replaced and we will be replacing bedding in time for the 2013 season. We also plan to purchase a new refrigerator. Although there is nothing wrong with the interior, where food is kept, we had a humid summer on the Cape in 2012 and metal items sometimes rust. We agree that aesthetically it wasn’t pleasing. Again, thank you for your feedback. We take comments seriously and endeavor to provide clean, comfortable, attractive accommodations in the heart of Chatham.

The appartment is situatd in the heart of the village of Chatham. From it you can easily walk to the town, to the main beach or to the local bay Oyster Pond for a swim.
Perfect as a location for visiting the reminder of the Cape.

Great Way to End the Summer!

  • 4 of 5
Had a wonderful end of the summer weekend at Ship's Light. The apartment is spacious and "Old Cape" charming. It was quiet, clean and fully equipped. It is located an easy walk away from the Village and convenient to shops and restaurants. Also an easy walk to Oyster Pond beach. The pride the owners have in the house is evident by the book they published on Ship's Light's history. A really lovely spot in Chatham.
