Chatham Breeze, Aug 2012
My wife and I stayed at Chatham Breeze with our daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters, ages 7 and 9. We all had a great time, largely due to the foresight and care of the owners. The Chatham Breeze is so clean, well located, and well equipped that we enjoyed every minute of our stay, even when it rained. The kids biked the Chatham bike trail, and the scenic bike trail around Chatham's shoreline. They used the bikes in the garage provided by the owners, which were good quality, virtually new bikes, with gears. Four adult bikes and four kids bikes. (Two of the adult bikes needed to adjust the brakes, but we did not need to use them.) The kids could bike to Oyster Beach or to the heart of "downtown" Chatham in 5 minutes (with adult supervision). We enjoyed both Hardings Beach and Ridgevale Beaches in Chatham, both a 5 minute drive away. We grilled each night on the porch, and sometimes ate inside and sometimes ate on the porch. Nice view of conservation woods and back yard. Lovely landscapping and virtually no bugs. Kitchen (and entire house) is extremely clean and well equipped. Every needed utensil, pot, plate, etc. is there. All clean, well organized and virtually new. They graciously provide paper supplies (paper towels, napkins, toilet paper, etc.), a full array of spices, olive oil, and cleaning supplies, as well as detergents for dishwasher and clothes washer. On rainy days, we taught the grandkids how to play billiards in the basement, and how to play poker and blackjack on the card table. We did not use the video games, although the kids did watch several of the DVDs from the extensive DVD library. And they used the puzzles and games. Our granddaughters become close friends with the bait and tackle shop owner (a neighbor) on our street. She even gave the girls a free T shirt in exchange for an eel which they found near the beach. They loved it. They also dug clams, which we cooked. Among the things we liked in the area were the Fishing Pier (they have the freshest sushi, as well as lobster rolls), Carmine's Pizza in town, the Pie Shop on Route 28 (very crowded on Saturdays), Castaways Italian restaurant on 28, the Kids Fishing trip (capecodkidsfishing.com), Harwich Jr Theater and the Wellfleet Drive-in. We also liked Salt Pond Visitors Center and Coast Guard Beach in the National Seashore, and the Brewster beaches at low tide.
