About Suzanne Ruggles

My mother enjoyed a few years of retirement in this lovely Chatham home before she passed away in 2003. My brother and I are lucky to spend a few weeks in the spring and fall, and then offer it to vacationers year round. I travel to Chatham from Raleigh NC at the very beginning of the season to prepare for the families - many of which have been coming regularly for years.

Suzanne Ruggles purchased this house in 1997

What makes this house unique

Seasong Cottage has a number of "getaway" areas - including the very private master bedroom, two separate living room sitting areas, a sunporch and a lovely back deck.

Pleasant Street Beach is just a short walk away and is a gem. As it is south facing, late afternoon provides a shimmering sun on the water - my favorite time to walk the beach! While it is public, it is small and relaxing - with mostly couples and young families enjoying the sand, looking for shells and exploring the jetty.

Newly Available - Aug 5-12! Walk to the beach in Chatham!
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Neat, warm, and wonderful! The home was clean and stocked when we arrived, and everything was in great working order. Slept a large crew comfortably, and the shaded deck in the wooded back yard was a real plus - we spent more waking together on it than we did inside. It's on a very quiet street and a short walk from the beach. Also incredibly convenient to Chatham and Harwich. Any questions we had were responded to promptly.

BTW, we returned from our vacation engaged! 😊򒠊

We'd definitely consider a return trip.
