Walk to Ridgevale Beach
average rating of 4.5 based on 8 reviews

Well maintained and clean cottage with great access to Ridgevale Beach. Had all amenities needed.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here at this cottage. Mike provides everything needed for a relaxing stay and being so close to the beach certainly made it easy. The fishing off the beach was great...many, many stripers and a few blues. If you like to fish, Joe with Cape Cod Charters is a great guide in the area. And if sushi interests you, Bluefins Sushi and Saki Bar in downtown Chatham is fantastic! Don't forget a trip to the Chatham Pier where the daily fishing boats bring in their catch, the well fed seals hang out, and the chowder there is delicious! Love the Cape, loved our time on Patterson Street. We will be back!

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect location for families -short walk to beach that has lifeguard, snack bar, great area for kids to play and look for little sea creatures/kayak etc. The house is immaculately clean and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Chatham is a great town and there are so many things restaurants, shopping, ice cream only a short drive from house.

We can't wait to return next year!!

Nice, clean and convenient

  • 4 of 5

This was a neat and tidy house that was super-convenient to the Ridgevale Beach. The house was clean upon arrival and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed the screened-in porch and open living space. Master bedroom is bright and sunny and upstairs laundry was convenient. Listing description is accurate.

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family and i stayed here for a week in August.You couldn't ask for a better location! The house was a quick walk to a great beach for children(we have 6 year old twins). They had tons of fun walking around all day catching small fish and crabs with nets and building sand castles. The owners were great to work with and the house had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We look forward to coming back next year!

Beautiful Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Dear Mike,

We thoroughly enjoyed your home. It was very clean and ready for us when we arrived.

I think we especially enjoyed the close proximity to the lovely beach. The children loved the estuary, where they could collect various sea creatures.

We loved the screened-in porch where we enjoyed our meals and the fresh air. We also enjoyed the upstairs porch where we could view the ocean.

All in all, it was a lovely vacation and I would recommend your home to others seeking a Chatham vacation.

Chatham is the quintessential Cape Cod village with a beautiful tree-lined Main Street with quaint shops and restaurants. Ridgevale Beach is the perfect combination of ocean side and tidal basin estuary beaches. The ocean offers fresh breezes and gentle waves while the tidal side provides warm water with a gentle current flow and shallow sandy shoals teaming with tidal sea life. Ideal for ocean sailing and tidal kayaking. Ridgevale Beach has a snack bar for lunch and our beach house is close enough for bathroom breaks and afternoon naps. No need to use the Ridgevale beach parking ($), which also limits the number of beach goers. A private association wooden bridge is available to walk to a more secluded section of the beach.

Other Activities: Biplane flights available at Chatham Airport
