Chatham House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

Everything in this Chatham retreat feels fresh and new, completely rebuilt in 2008. You'll find hotel-quality accommodations for 3 couples or a family, with all the comforts of home. We've almost filled the 2014 summer but you can still grab the beginning of June and a special nine day slot at Labor Day, a new feature for us.

When you arrive you will find that our architect maximized light, air, and views, with great flow from the upstairs vaulted bedroom ceilings to the open plan downstairs. The spacious front and back decks overlook gorgeous landscaping and neighboring woods. From daffodils to hibiscus, we designed our organic gardens for lots of color throughout the spring, summer, and fall seasons, attracting abundant wildlife.

We are in a great location, walk along protected wetlands to lovely Forest Beach, where you can find your own stretch of sand away from the crowds. It's also a short walk to a great cafe and wonderful upscale restaurant.

Inside, each of the three bedrooms has its own bathroom, TV, DVD, and radio/Ipod port. The master suite has a tempurpedic queen bed and full bath. The other two bedrooms can be made up as twin sets or king, and contain all new pillowtop mattresses with hotel quality linens. There is a brand new ping pong table in our basement rec-room/art studio, and even beach towels are provided.

Our home is also handicap accessible, complying as much as was possible to ADA requirements on the entire first floor. Both front and back decks are wheelchair accessible. The downstairs bedroom flows into a shower bathroom with grab bars and also grab bars around the toilet. The upstairs back bathroom with shower also has grab bars. The upstairs bedrooms have a lofty feel with lots of windows and light, and we installed two separately zoned central air and heating systems (one upstairs and one downstairs) for your year round comfort.

Our living room, with two six foot sofas, two comfy club chairs, and extensive library for all ages, makes a great room to entertain and enjoy a book, game, or movie with a nice fire. This space flows into a brand new cook's kitchen, fully equipped with whatever you may need for any kind of feast. We have ample dishware and cookware for you and all your guests - no foraging for a corkscrew here! All of our appliances are top quality, including an extra full size refrigerator/freezer in the basement for your overflow drinks and produce.

An eight to ten minute walk from our front door leads you to Forest Beach on Nantucket Sound for swimming, birding, and water sports. If you want to drive your gear down there, parking is free. Following Forest Beach or the marsh path towards Chatham town, you will find our beautiful estuary. Watch the tides come and go, enjoy the shells and other ocean treasures at low tide. Go the other way on Forest Beach Road and you can easily walk to the Box Office Cafe, Pisces Restaurant, the Cape Cod bicycle path and Highway 28. A five to ten minute drive takes you to the Cape Cod National Seashore and all kinds of beaches, both fresh and salt water ponds, and eateries.

We also enjoy a small public park, a five minute walk from our front door, which includes a tennis court, basketball hoop, and jungle gym for the little ones. Our neighborhood is quiet and safe, with woodsy shortcuts between beaches and plenty of nature for the whole family to explore. Our own gardens are organically grown and we include numerous native plants as well as the old favorites, with a nice lawn and eye for seasonal color changes.

Our expansion of the original family home has created a wonderful and workable vacation getaway, where groups can gather for fun and scatter for privacy. In addition to the three bathrooms, we have a spacious outside shower with ramp and grab bars, and there is ample off street parking.

The ping pong rec room in our basement shares the space with a large laundry area and art studio with lots of natural light. There are two tv's down there and sofa, with plenty of room to fold and iron clothes or just hide out.

At every turn we have provided for our renters all those comforts that we ourselves enjoy, with amenities that will exceed your every expectation. Once you have experienced Paul & Mary's Place, you'll never want to go anywhere else.

I am an artist, mostly painter, specializing in wildlife, such as endangered species, and pet portraits. I have been lucky to enjoy both coasts, living most of the year in Redondo Beach California.

Martha Newman purchased this house in 2007

My husband and I inherited the original home from his family and we began our remodeling in 2007.

Mostly I enjoy the fresh water pond swimming - this is not to be had where I live in LA and I love watching the trout and turtles swimming around in that spring fed environment. I also adore eating seafood and the Cape has the best.

Great place to relax

We arrived early evening with two other couples and immediately felt at home. Nicely laid out, good attention to details. Immaculately clean. Homey without being pretentious. Nearby great restaurants and sightseeing. The town of Chatham is great for exploring. I particularly liked the large, used book store on the main street. Early morning walks to the nearby beach and nature preserve were refreshing. Couldn't recommend it more.

terrific vacation place

Fantastic house, very helpful owner. Loved having two zones for climate control (up and down). Lots of helpful information in various parts of the house -- instructions for appliances (all top of the line), directions to the dump, laundry, etc. Only a few minutes walk to the beach, which was great. Some other really nice neighborhood walks too. Bedding was lovely, good hot water, terrific shower heads even! Loved that each bedroom, plus the living room, had cable TV/radio/CD player. House was spotless -- owner has terrific housekeeping service, and landscaping was lovely too. Fantastic property, would definitely stay again.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We've enjoyed our time at the Cape, reconnecting with family and nature. There's a great energy in this place. We also love the eclectic artwork! It's just like home, only better!

Martha, this was our first time renting in the winter, and we will sure be doing it again. The Cape is just as beautiful in the winter as in the summer. We had a great time at the Squire for New Year's. The house is amazing and thank you so much for the lobsters!

My husband and family stayed at this beautiful house last fall. The owners thought of everything you need and made our stay most enjoyable. We loved sitting out on the deck for breakfast and BBQ's and the fact that you are so close to the beach and a great coffee shop. The house is very tastefully decorated and gives you a warm and welcoming feeling. We just loved it very much and we'll be back. We will definitely recommend your place to all our friends. Thanks again for making this vacation special.

We have been vacationing at the Cape for more than 20 years and I can write, with conviction, that this was the finest property we have ever rented. The pictures, descriptions, and testimonials on this site accurately describe this home away from home. The property was extremely clean and well manicured. In fact, the lawn, garden, and decks are the finest in the neighborhood. And a top of the line gas grill. Very short walk to Forest Beach - we walked there with the family morning, noon and in the evening to watch the spectacular sunset. Mattresses and sheets to die for. All new mechanicals, including two level AC. Books, CD's, and your own DVD library to choose from. We look forward to visiting again. Martha, thanks for making this a wonderful vacation experience.

This home is spacious with outstanding ammendities for everyone. TVs and DVDs in all bedrooms. A ping pong table in the basement. Outdoor living with a BBQ on the back deck plus tables and chairs on both the front and back decks. The kitchen is extremely well equiped with staples and paper goods. Perfect place for fixing any type of meal. The owner was very responsive to all questions and anxious to please. There was lots of information about the Cape and good maps of the area. I can recommend this rental as a great property in Cape Cod.
