About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 1 outdoor shower room

Private 2 bedroom cottage in private community nestled among the pine trees on White Pond. Perfect for small families or a couple who desires extra space. It will comfortably sleep 5. Master bedroom offers a queen sized bed and second bedroom is equipped with a double bed with a twin trundle. Screened-in porch is perfect for quiet evenings in or relaxing mornings drinking coffee while listening to song birds. Swim at the private beach in a fresh water lake or take a short 5 minute drive to various ocean beaches. Chatham's downtown is only 2-3 miles away and is filled with wonderful boutique shops and fine restaurants that rival Nantucket's best. This cottage offers an exclusive getaway without the expense of Chatham's many high-end resorts. Bring your bikes, kayaks or canoe to take advantage of the pond and walking trails that provide an abundance of nature's many gifts. Friday night band concerts or a trip to North beach to explore the harbor seals are a must for the children.

This is a quiet family oriented community. It is safe for small children. It's an ideal location for those who enjoy nature and relaxation with the conveniences of the hustle and bustle near by. It is located on White Pond in Chatham (warmer water and no sharks). White pond does not allow motorized watercrafts so it's very peaceful. Recommend a whale or seal watch tour. We are located close to the bike trail, so you can rent bikes. The trail goes all the way to Provincetown. You can stroll the town for quaint shops and art galleries. In the summer the Friday night band concerts are a must for the bunny hop and waltzing around the band stand. The Chatham seafood market is across the street. A trip to the Chatham Squire is a must for a stuffed quahog and clam chowder.

Cozy retreat

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a wonderful time at this cozy, comfortable cottage on White Pond. The cottage was neat and had every amenity we needed. Also it offers a superb location in Chatham, with easy access to beaches, restaurants, and a bike trail.

Wonderful TIme

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean, relaxing cottage. We spent the weekend here and couldn't have asked for a more comfortable home atmosphere. The owners were great and very helpful.

I would rent it again!

Relaxing but in serious need of TLC

  • 2 of 5

Spent a week in this cottage and really enjoyed our time in Chatham. The cottage was quite and located close to shops and restaurants in a very pretty wooded setting. We were able to have morning coffee and swim in the pond which was nice. While the price was certainly good, the owners really need to give this cute cottage some serious TLC. The second bedroom had a very uncomfortable mattress, paint was peeling in all rooms, the porch was unfinished and the cable TV would go on and off if someone walked in the room - there were also times we couldn't get it on at all. Owner was very nice but it would be good for her to spend a little time fixing things up

Owner's Response: This is a seasonal, budget level cottage and accurately described and supported by photos in the listing (including photos of the unfinished porch). It is meant to be campy and it is a seasonal cabin. We try to keep an affordable price for the budge travelers, since the hotels in town typically run a person over $300 at night for one room.Our repeat vacationers that have stayed with us yearly over the past 10 years can attest to our efforts to improve our property yearly. We just added storm windows to the porch to keep weather out and replaced the some of the other windows last year. Our visitor was correct about location, we are located on 5 private acres on a fresh water pond with direct fresh water access (no sharks). I encourage visitors to review the photos, so they can appreciate our bargain gem.

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect. Two young professional couples that had plenty of room. Very relaxing. Just down the street from all the shops and reatuarants. Chatham is a great spot on the Cape with so much to do.

We couldn't have asked for a better accommodation.
