A Lovely Home Base for Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Summer 2016 was our first trip to Cape Cod as a family and we had a wonderful time, with this house being a perfect "home base" for our week-long stay. It's location is great, not only because it's in Chatham at the center of the Cape, but also because the home itself is on a quiet street, on the bike trail, and within a few minutes drive from two beaches and boutique shopping/dining in one direction or a large grocery store in the other for convenience. The home is clean and secure, and the owner is very helpful with communication if needed. It really feels like a home, not a "rental property", with lovely décor and a fully equipped kitchen. I liked having the washer/dryer as well as more than one the outdoor shower was great. It was nice to have an entire house to stretch out in at the end of each day and really relax!

Activities to recommend....Do not miss the cinnamon buns at Marion's Pie Shop just down the street...and their seafood pie was FABULOUS when we brought one home for dinner. The beaches and sunsets are beautiful! Seeing the seals at the Fish Pier, a whale watch tour out of P-Town, treasure hunting at the local church thrift shops, the National Seashore museum and the Friday night band concert. We'll be back!

Simply Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay here in August 2015.

From the beginning, Carol was lovely to work with and was very prompt to return any phone calls or emails that we had.

This house was immaculate and was beyond our expectations. It was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and was in a very quiet neighborhood. Simply gorgeous.

Carol provided every amenity a guest could possibly need or want. She also had a binder on the kitchen table with details on the house and a basket full of pamphlets of local dining and attractions.

The back yard deck was very relaxing and perfect to sit and have a drink at night or for your morning coffee.

The beaches were very close as was the Main Street shopping.

Morning drives to Lighthouse Beach are a must! The Chatham Squire is great as well as having drinks at The Chatham Bars Inn overlooking the ocean.

We definitely plan to return next year and would recommend this property to anyone.

Lovely home near everything in Chatham

  • 5 of 5

A lovely Cape Cod home central to everything - bike trail, beaches, interstates. Very quiet, comfortable home with beautiful interior that suited our 3 member family perfectly. The location is great - close to other Cape towns including Harwich for the seal cruises and Orleans for Nauset Beach. This is a kid and adult paradise - one we will remember for years to come!

The owners keep their property immaculate and all amenities are as described. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a respite on Cape Cod.

Absolute perfection

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay at Carol's home in August 2012. Our family of four (2 kids) arrived on Saturday to very thoughtful gifts and a personal note from Carol. The house was absolutely immaculate. My husband is very particular about cleanliness and he was impressed (doesn't happen often!). She left a binder with detailed instructions about the house and a basket with pamphlets of local attractions. (Prior to our arrival, she was very detailed and offered loads of great information- directions, where to stop for groceries on the way there, places to eat).

Carol has thought of every possible thing one could need, and then some. There were beach toys for the kids; beach blankets; beach chairs; board games; beach towels; bath towels; a very well-stocked kitchen; outdoor grill; and on and on. The house also has a fabulous outdoor shower which we all loved and a nice fireplace though we never actually used it (it was August).

The house has lovely decorations with a lot of Cape Cod/ nautical themes.

The bike path is directly behind the house which was an absolute blessing when you have 2 kids who are not yet confident bikers. We were able to hop right on the path without worrying about traffic and riding on busy streets. For us, being on the bike path was better than being on a beach! The backyard, however, is densely landscaped so bikers cannot see in and you do enjoy total privacy from the path.

The house is also walking distance to Marions Pie Shop which was very bad for my waistline...we walked over to Marions every morning for hot cinnamon buns (go at 8 and they are coming right out of the oven!) and also got pies from there twice.

The street is on a quiet cul de sac and the kids were able to practice bike riding in the street (supervised of course). There were maybe 4 or 5 other houses on the street- very quiet. The house is also walking distance to Volunteer Park which has a nice playground and a baseball field where we went to fly kites one windy day.

At Carol's suggestion we also enjoyed the Chatham Friday night bandstand which was one of many highlights for the week.

Overall we had a fabulous week and could not have asked for more from a hostess. We have rented countless homes throughout the country and abroad and this was hands-down our best experience. I would highly recommend staying here- gorgeous house, great hostess, perfect quaint Cape Cod town. You won't be disappointed!

As beautiful in person as in the pictures

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed in the Griffin’s wonderful home for our family vacation. The house is as beautiful in person as it is in the pictures. Everything was immaculate! My husband and I joked that we felt like we were living in a Pottery Barn catalogue for the week due to the lovely furnishings. Carol thought of everything including a gift of Good Night Cape Cod for our 8 month old son – the perfect way to end a fun day! We also enjoyed being right on the rails to trails which is great for walking as well as biking. Thank you Carol for a wonderful vacation!

A great place to stay in Chatham!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this property at the end of the summer and we had a wonderful time. The owner, Carol, is a dream to work with. Not only is she prompt with answering your questions but she is organized and puts your mind at ease while planning your vacation.

The house was accurately advertised so have no fear in your decision to book. It's not to far from the main drag of Chatham, so you are minutes away from fabulous shopping and delicious restaurants. The house is located right on the bike trail which is great for long walks on a summer night. The beaches in Chatham are beautiful - it’s just a lovely, quaint town. I would recommend driving to the area beaches as sometimes you accumulate a lot of beach gear and it’s easier to bring in the car. I would also recommend the "seal tour" - they are so cute!

The house was fully equipped with anything and everything you need for your vacation. The only thing you will need to pack are clothes and toiletries. Carol supplies everything else for you - from towels and laundry detergent to cooking supplies! I am a bit of a neat-freak and get really nervous renting vacation properties but for this trip I had nothing to worry about. The property was very clean and I had no complaints.

We would certainly recommend this property to others. Hopefully you will have a great time if you decide to book!
