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.

This place is very homey and everything you need is there. My family and I had a wonderful time and the beach is just minutes away. I would definitely stay again!

Seasong Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Seasong Cottage, a lovely home, walking distance from Pleasant Beach. Very comfortable and very "welcoming," has all the lovely traits of a Cape beach house!

Seasong had all amenities needed and more, convenient to everything in Chatham. Susan was extremely accommodating, a pleasure to deal with!

We highly recommend Season Cottage!

Property is not maintained. Unkept yard, mossy trees hanging over house, bugs, and dirty interior.

  • 1 of 5

I was very unhappy with this property. So unhappy, I asked for a full refund and was prepared to not take my vacation at all. The backyard was absolutely horrible. Large mossy trees hanging over the house with dead caterpillars everywhere. For a beach vacation and such a gorgeous area, you do not want to return to such a gloomy home after a nice day in the sun. The inside is very old- clearly no updates for a while. Dirty rugs in the bedrooms and hallways and dust in every corner. A small portable air conditioner is in the master bedroom but does not cool the house beyond that one bedroom, so you will be uncomfortable.

I will say that I did complain to both the "property manager" (he said he just comes over and mowes the lawn), as well as the owner. The owner reimbursed me a little money so that made it slightly better to stick it out for the full week. So she did work with me a bit.

However, I would not recommend this home for your Chatham vacation. It is surrounded by gorgeous and well maintained homes and is very disappointing - in particular, for the high price you pay to stay there.

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.
