Wonderful cottage with great beach access

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cottage! Great location - the 3 minute walk to Ridgevale Beach was perfect! The cottage had every amenity we could have possibly wanted and the beds were really comfortable! We took advantage of the fire pit which was an added bonus! The owner was very responsive to our questions and we are looking forward to next summer!

Amazing week on the Cape!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cottage!! I don't even know where to begin because it was just perfect! We stayed for one week with our two kids (ages 6 and 3). The amenities provided by the owners made the stay so enjoyable and easy. The house was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The walk to the beach was so short, we were able to come back for lunch and just leave our stuff at the beach. The beach is beautiful and great for small kids. We used the stand up paddle board several times which was lots of fun (included in rental)! The outside shower is fantastic and made washing up after the beach a breeze! The house stayed cool with the window fans, we didn't even need to use the air conditioner. We highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a place on the Cape within walking distance to the beach. We hope to return again in the future :)

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.
