Perfect cottage at Ridgevale beach

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was just perfect for our family of four. It was neat and clean, and stocked with everything you might need on a vacation. The description is very accurate.

We love Ridgevale beach - it's great for kids - with the inlet, as well as the ocean to swim in. It was wonderful staying at a house that was such a quick and easy walk to the beach. The toy shed is great, we particularly appreciated having the use of the kayaks and stand up paddleboard. And it was great having the outdoor shower to use after coming in from the beach.

It's a quick drive to downtown Chatham, though we spent most of our time at the beach. We did catch a Chatham Anglers baseball game and a lobster roll at Chatham Fish and Chips.

Thanks for sharing your lovely cottage with us. We hope to return next year!

Quintessential Cape Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time back on the Cape in five years and it was well worth the wait. We brought our dog and the three of us had an amazing week at the beach. Our dog kept busy chasing all the neighborhood bunnies while we maximized our time on the water. Luckily for us, the weather (and surprisingly the water) was very warm all week, which made our proximity to the beach that much sweeter. We spent several nights grilling out and enjoying the front yard bonfire (albeit with a few mosquito bites). I also can't forget to mention the outdoor shower, which is a real treat during the summer. The kitchen is fully stocked, especially if you love cast iron skillet cooking like I do. I'd easily recommend this place to friends and family. Also, if it's your first time to Chatham, check out the Chatham Fish fish and chips ever!

Charming cottage - exceptionally maintained.

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful experience and we plan to book again next year. The cottage is barely a two minute walk to a fabulous family friendly beach. Jennifer made the experience better sharing information about the area. She really has thought of everything as it relates to stocking the home - extra blankets, board games, books, etc. We have rented a lot on the Cape and this was our best experience.

A piece of heaven!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this cottage 2 times and are in the process of booking our 3rd returning trip. The cottage is conveniently located (2 mins walking distance) from Ridgevalve beach, the most beautiful and kid-friendly beach on the Cape. The cottage is very charming, clean, well maintained, and has great amenities. Jennifer, the hostess is very sweet and thoughtful; she thinks of and provides everything a family would possibly need including small things like Band-Aids, alcohol rubs and bug sprays. It has a shed that keeps bikes, beach chairs, beach toys and kayaks. We truly enjoy this cottage, going there has become a family tradition! Thank you Jennifer for sharing your beautiful cottage with my family! We will be returning many years to come.

Beautiful, charming cottage in idyllic location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay in this beautiful, charming cottage. The listing was very accurate in regards to location. A beatiful location and the cottage was so close to Ridgevale beach. The cottage had excellent amenities from wifi, TV, printer, fire pit, barbecue and outdoor shower which was invaluable after spending all day on the beach.

The kitchen had every utensil you required to cook for yourselves. The cottage was clean and well maintained and felt very homely.

At the back of the house was an amazing toy shed, which had bikes for all ages, trucks to carry all your stuff to the beach and best of all there were two canoes which our kids carried to the beach each day just a few 100 metres away.

Jennifer was fantastic in telling us about the house and kept us informed of everything we needed to know prior to our arrival

As a family we enjoyed a fabulous week on Ridgevale beach and are eager to return soon. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone as a base to explore a beautiful part of the world

I would recommend visiting the pier to see the seals in Chatham, for families with small children Campground beach was ideal with rockpools for the children when the tide went out and Skaket and Ridgevale beach for beautiful sunsets.

We had a fantastic week in a beautiful part of america and at the end of each day came home to this beautiful charming cottage.

Absolutely Wonderful Place for a Family!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage by the sea is a wonderful place for a family vacation. The owners provide everything a family could need: comfy, charming living quarters, a well-equipped kitchen, beach bags and a great patio. The garden shed behind the cottage is a child's dream filled with bikes, helmets, beach toys, chairs and a wagon to get everything to the beach and back. The cottage is located on a quiet street and the beach is a short walk away. Our kids had such a great time. We can't wait to return.

Thank you for sharing such a wonderful place with us!
