                                                              Wonderful family accommodation in great Chatham location

                                                              Two generations shared this beautifully located home overlooking a tidal marsh rich in wildlife. Early mornings on the back deck were a joy watching birdlife and the occasional deer. The house itself was very well supplied for the enjoyment of guests with a home-away-from-home feel. The high ceiling and skylight in the open living room/dining area gave a feeling of spaciousness, and the furniture was very comfortable. In the bedrooms, closets were large and there was plenty of drawer space. Downstairs was a haven of entertainment for keeping amused in bad weather – which didn’t happen during our 9-day stay. Our wish would have been for more storage space for food, but it didn’t affect our enjoyment of this lovely home.

                                                              We booked the house last minute and we're not disappointed. It was very clean and close to the beach

                                                              Kathleen and Michael were very helpful is getting us all the information for our stay. They met us st the house and have a tour and advice on certain features of the home and where everything was located. Beautiful and very clean home with a deck overlooking the marsh that provided great sunset views. The house and rooms were very clean and the beach was a 10 minute walk and very nice as well. The house was close to downtown Chatham and we spent a lot of time there when we weren't at the beach. We would definitely recommend this house for anyone new to the Cape or those who are looking for a nice quiet home within close proximity to the beach, Chatham and Rte 6. We and our kids had a great time and were very happy with our selection of the house. I would not hesitate to return for our next trip. Great vacation!!!!!

                                                              Charming House Great Location SIX stars

                                                              We went to Cape Cod to celebrate my milestone birthday. We wanted it to be special and we had done a lot of research and decided that Chatham would be best for us and ideal to our needs. We spoke to Kathleen on the phone several times before booking and she was patient and most helpful. Our flight from London arrived very late into Boston and we didn't get to Chatham till nearly midnight. Kathleen and Michael were most thoughtful and considerate and had arranged to have all the beds made up, knowing we would be shattered after such a long journey. They had even left a variety of teas to welcome us as we were British! Kathleen and Michael had left a selection of maps and things to do, ferry timetables to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, Restaurant suggestions with telephone numbers. Once we lost our keys to the front door, on phoning Michael, he calmly and immediately arranged for a spare set without any extra charge. I forgot a silk blouse behind, Kathleen posted this to London immediately. Nothing was too much trouble for this lovely couple. The house itself was charming, immaculate and nicely furnished. It was very well equipped for any and every eventuality. The basement was great and we had such a fun evening playing table tennis and cards. The outside deck was fabulous with great views over the marsh. The beach is walking distance. I had a wonderful birthday . We would love to return there one day. We give the house and the owners SIX stars ******

                                                              Lovely home

                                                              My husband and I enjoyed 2 wonderful weeks at this lovely Chatham home in a very quiet neighborhood. The house was immaculate and Kathleen and Mike were very helpful in giving us a tour of the home and suggesting activities we might enjoy. The house was very open and bright and had a lovely large deck with a beautiful view of the Cockle Creek Salt Marsh. The kitchen was well stocked but we generally chose to explore the many wonderful restaurants in the area. Ridgevale beach is my favorite beach on the Cape. There is ocean swimming and sandbars and little creeks that are perfect for families. Downtown Chatham with lots of stores and great restaurants is just a few miles away, and it's easy to get to all parts of the Cape from this central location. We definitely recommend this house!

                                                              This home has everything you could possibly need for a great vacation.

The beds are comfortable, kitchen is supplied with absolutely everything you would need, the location is within walking distance of a great beach and a quick drive to the shops in Chatham. The house was very clean. The owner's were helpful and thorough throughout the process.
