Overview

Chatham House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedms, 3 baths on Deering Dr. ,walk to Ridgevale Beach

Our lovely Cape home on Deering Drive is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac, a short half-mile walk up from one of the best family beaches on the Cape – Ridgevale Beach. In 2007, we made extensive renovations to the house, every year since, we add touches to update and freshen. NEW THIS YEAR – IN 2016 – AIR CONDITIONING! The house feels like an older quaint Cape, but it has the amenities of a new house. There are warm oak floors throughout the first floor.. On the main floor there is a kitchen, sun room leading to a deck, living room, full bath and two light-filled bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and its own bath with shower. The other bedroom has twin beds. On the ceramic tiled walk-out level there is a living room with trundle bed/couch, an efficiency kitchen, carpeted bedroom with twin beds, full bath and laundry.

More About the House: In colder seasons the living room, which has its own comfortable feeling, is a great place to spend time playing games by the fire. It's the sun room and deck that get the most use by vacationers. Visiting renters REALLY enjoy the outdoor shower at the edge of the deck under the trees. Note–there are closable gates built for the deck to keep very young children safe. Parents tell us that they LOVE the cul-de-sac location, because it is a great space for games and big toys with wheels. There is also an expansive back yard great for croquet or badminton games, and we have the equipment for both.

Beaches and The Cape: Our own Ridgevale Beach is simply one of the greatest beaches for families with children. It's location on the bay means we benefit from warmer Cape water and gentle surf. The tidal pool creates great play areas and accommodates different swimmer capabilities. Although, the beach is a short walk from the house, you can also park at the beach if you get a sticker. A beach sticker allows you to park at other Chatham beaches, as well, including Schoolhouse Pond, and this can be a real treat.

You don’t need a sticker for Lighthouse Beach, which is a beach at the tip of Chatham. You park where you can and you haul your beach gear. This is a great beach for walking, usually quite cold water, but exceptionally beautiful and you frequently see seals. Harding's Beach, just down from Rdgevale, is a great beach on a windy day. We go to the far parking lot, walk into the dune area and hunker down. This is a good beach for walking, also.

What We Love To Do At The Cape: In addition to the beaches and walks near us, we may go to Nauset Beach in Orleans, or we make a trip to the National Seashore – a day long affair - and end with a trip to Provincetown for dinner at either the Red Inn, Lobster Hut or Nappy's, with time for sight-seeing, shopping and wandering some of the side streets of P-town. A trip to P-town, minus the swimming experience, can also include a trip to go whale watching or a trip to the museum on the hill. One night, if we think the sunset is going to be great, we get over to Orleans Harbor and watch the fishing boats come in as the sun sets on the water. We also LOVE nature walks - favorites - Morris Island in Chatham and the Nauset Marsh Trail. (Google Cape Cod Nature Trails!) Oh, and the bike trail in a half mile away from our house. It's quite a trail.

About Linda Anderson

This home is owned by three sisters. It was passed down from our father, who built it. It has been in our family for over 50 years. We like to make it comfortable for ourselves and others, yet keep it a vacation home.

Why Linda Anderson chose Chatham

1. We are in lovely Chatham! From here you can explore in several directions. 2. You can walk to Ridgevale Beach. There is no better beach for families. 3. The cup de sac and lack of properties across the street create a protected neighborhood feeling.

our stay at Deering Drive

  • 4 of 5

This is a comfortable property for 6 people. Our family had fun. The deck outside is great to BBQ and have dinners. The beach is walking distance as promised and it is a very good for smaller children with tidal pools and sand bars. The School House Pond close by is amazing too. The town of Chatham has a wonderful New England feel. We ate at Wild Goose Tavern and Chatham Bars Inn, both places had great food. The walk on the Light House Beach was great too, the sea Lions are there every evening. We loved a day trip to Province town where the Pilgrims monument and main street were fun for the grownups and kids.

Beautiful Cape home on Ridgeville beach.

  • 5 of 5

We really loved staying in this beautiful Cape home just a short walk to the beach or drive if you like. The home is very comfortable has everything you could possibly need and more. We spent a lot of time having dinners and lunches on the picnic table on the beautiful deck. Once I found the outside shower that was it for me we all took a shower there every day. Staying in Chatham is good because you are right in the middle of going up to Provincetown or going down to the lower cape. We love going to the Chatham Squire for a cold beer and a lobster roll. We enjoyed going to the fish pier around 430 to watch the fish boats come in. My son and his family brought their bikes with them and had a lot of fun biking all around the Cape not even going on a road. I have been coming to Cape Cod since I was a little girl every summer and Ridgeville beach is very special to us but what I love about it most is my little four-year-old granddaughter can swim around there it's very shallow and great for kids. The house is very comfortable we really want to come back to the same house again everything is clean and very well-equipped and not to mention very cozy. Thank you.

Owner's Response: This is a first time renter for us, writing about her family's stay at the Cape. She is not a relative or family friend. Honest! Joanne took the time to write about the things that made a vacation at 82 Deering in Chatham, special for her and her family. We are grateful to her for, obviously, taking the time to share her thoughts.

Bonjour,

Nous avonspasse un très bon séjour dans votre maison.

Voici Les points forts: étage du haut très bien;

- la véranda, et le passe plat de la cuisine sont super!

La cuisine est fonctionnel mais la propreté un peu douteuse.

L'espace extérieure très bien et confortable, tranquille, la douche

Extérieure est très agréable, mais manque un peu d'intimité.

Ce que nous n'avons pas aimé, l'odeur du sous-sol, la chambre

Avec le tapis, et la salle de bain qui a besoin de rénovation.

Alors maison parfaite pour 4 adultes et des enfants au sous-sol.

Il ne manquait rien, le secteur est très bien et nous sommes allés à la plage pour les feux d'artifice du 4 juillet!

Très beau, nous y retournerons avec plaisir et surtout après des

Améliorations au sous-sol.

Merci!

Owner's Response: It was unfortunate that this traveler did not find our house exactly to her liking. Luckily, she is only one person out of so many others who have rented the house and found it comfortable, well-maintained, family-friendly and in a great location near Ridgevale Beach. From the get go, the language barrier between us created an extra bit of work, as did the back and forth about why we wouldn't want a puppy in the house. Each year we make significant changes in adding amenities for the benefit of those who rent from us. This year we have a big one planned.

Very Good house close to great kids beach

  • 4 of 5

Nice house in a great location a short drive from the charming town of Chatham. A very short drive or reasonable walk for adults to Ridgevale beach, which is a great beach for kids. The house itself has lots of nice features such a a big deck, BBQ, front/back yard, well stocked kitchen and linens. Owners were very responsive and helpful. The house has AC window units in the bedrooms but on hot days/evenings the central common rooms were uncomfortably hot. The only annoying thing is having to wash all of the linens prior to departure which others have also mentioned in previous reviews. Overall would recommend this rental, especially for young families.

Meander through the quaint streets of Chatham, shop in the fine stores, take your pick of excellent inns and restaurants. Friday night band concerts are a must to experience. Visit the lighthouse on an evening as the fog rolls in. Enjoy a Cape League baseball game, also frequently visited by fog. Kids will love the playground next to it.

In and near Chatham - visit a charming historical museum, go seal watching or deep-sea fishing, experience a variety of beautiful beaches. Chatham is also perfectly located for daily excursions to: Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Hyannis ( the Kennedy's summer home), Nauset Beaches, The Cape Cod National Seashore, or go antiquing and fine craft shopping along old 6A. Oh, and some night, catch the sunset at the Orleans Fishing Pier.

There are nature walks, bike trails, ponds galore. Enjoy our favorite - the Fort Hill Walk, then on to Provincetown.

Other Activities: marsh and bird walks
