Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed being at your cottage - it was just wonderful! You thought of everything to make a stay perfect !! Truly it was a memorable week-end. It's been a long winter and summer, but seeing my Mom enjoy herself and being able to get away with her and my sister and such a beautiful place.....with such perfect weather.......was very very special to us all.

We enjoyed Pumpkin-tini's and appetizers at the Wild Goose, Lobster bisque at Nauset Beach, the view from Scargo Tower and several little shops as well as great food and "girly" movies at the cottage...the outside shower was awesome too ! ! ! !

Thank you soooooooo much! Would most definitely consider doing so again (and again) ! I also wanted to mention that the photography was just beautiful ! Every detail shows great care in what you have created and it was noticed and appreciated ! ! !

Wonderfuly family reunion!

  • 5 of 5


We just stayed at John's place. It was wonderful! The home was great for our mini family reunion. There were 6 adults (both sets of grandparents) my husband and I and our 1 year old son. The set up was great. The sunroom is very separate from the rest of the house, which was wonderful when my son got up early, no one else could hear us as we played. Only downside was it was a little dark inside.

Very nice walk to the beach (Ridgevale was awesome for our 1 year old!), though we did end up getting a weekly pass.

Everything was very neat and clean, and John was great about returning our calls and very helpful throughout the whole booking and rental process.

Thank you for a wonderful first cape cod experience!

The home was clean, spacious and quiet!! We would go back again!! The owner was great to deal with!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved Chatham. It is a lovely town with great beaches and lots to do there and around the cape. We had a great place to stay with all of the comforts of home and not the stuffiness of a hotel. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Thank you John the owner, thank you Home Away and thank you Cape Cod :o)

Perfect Location and Beautiful Patio

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at your house! it was cute and clean, with everything our family needed. Our teenagers played ball outside each night while we hung out on the patio having cocktails. We enjoyed the proximity to Cockle Cove, the bike path (we rode three times going both directions), and went to School House for ice cream. We ate our way thru the Cape! Bought pies from Marion's two separate nights, the Seafood Pie and Chicken Pot Pie are awesome! Ate at Larry's PX, had great lunch, went to the Red Taven our first nite, had great supper. Then to Chatham had great dinner at the "Goose"(our fancier night out ), shopped etc. Off to Provincetown only 40 mins away, more shopping and more eating! Spent two days at Nauset Beach too in nearby Orleans! Holy onion rings at the Crab Shack on the beach! Great time, great home. PS. My Dad loved the sunroom, his two days he visited. :)

Wonderful Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I connected with John to book our stay, it was apparent that John and Denise's main objective was for me and my girlfriends to have a great time and feel right at home upon arrival. Well, they succeeded! The house was clean and tastefully decorated with great proximity to Cockle Cove Beach. John was easily reached in the event of a question and even checked in with us on the day we arrived to make sure everything was up to par. I cannot say enough about John as a host and this house - what a wonderful girls weekend! Thank You!

Cozy Comfort in Chatham

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I get together every year for a weekend reunion. This year we decided to rent a house this year as opposed to staying in a hotel and we chose this adorable cottage. I can't say enough about how clean, presentable and comfortable the house was. It is well equipped and everything worked perfectly. The owner presented us with a very detailed, thoughtful instructions before we got to the house which made it easy for us to get settled in...As advertised, the house is a quick walk to the beach, and 10 minute ride to downtown Chatham. I wouldn't hesitate to rent it again.

Clean and Peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

John and Denise, we can't thank you enough for the accommodations you provide! We had plenty of space for three adults and three children and couldn't have been more pleased with the setting! Truly one of the cleanest rentals I have ever stayed in and we were very comfortable! My mother in law didn't want to leave! My husband LOVED the outdoor shower and used it every day. The setting was great and we will be back!

Nearest Beach
0.3 Miles
Cockle Cove Beach
Car: not necessary

A few words on Cockle Cove beach: Cockle Cove is situated between Ridgevale and Forest Street beach on the warm, calm waters of Nantucket Sound. Like its neighboring beaches this is a favorite for those with small children and makes a great launch for windsurfers and kayakers. The comfortably-sized beach parking lot lies at the end of Cockle Cove Road in South Chatham. This is a town-managed beach with a life guard on duty and bathroom facilities.
