House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This charming Chatham summerhouse has been a family summer retreat for years. Located in South Chatham about a half mile from Forrest Street Beach, this classic Cape Cod style house is nestled on a large property with a big yard in the sun for games and cookouts, as well as delightful shaded areas for reading and relaxation. Inside, the house features many different common areas, including a living room, den and a newly built screened-in porch with couches and chairs you won't want to leave.

The Bayview house features a wonderful living room, complete with a TV, DVD/blu-ray player, fireplace and plenty of comfortable seating. Just a step off the living room, you'll find the large screened-in porch, which also features a large couch and several comfortable sitting chairs. Because the property is on a slight elevation, the porch is a perfect spot to lounge in the famous Cape Cod Breeze.

Adjacent to the living room is a small reading room, which leads into the dining area and newly remodeled, fully equipped kitchen. Off of the dining area is a bright and airy den.

The den leads out to the back patio, which features tables and plenty of seating. The spacious backyard, complete with a charcoal barbeque and a picnic table make the backyard the ideal spot for family cookouts and lobster-bakes.

In addition to the den, the house features three bedrooms. The Yellow Room, located on the first floor adjacent to the downstairs bathroom, has two twin beds. On the second floor, The Blue Room has two twin beds and The Red Room has one queen bed. Adjacent to those two rooms is the second bathroom. All bedrooms have closets and dressers. And lastly, tucked away in the backyard is a wonderful outdoor shower, which is a refreshing delight on those Cape Cod summer days.

The garage is great for storing bikes and beach chairs, and the basement of the house features a full washer and dryer, as well as a ping-pong table. Also located a short walk down the road is a full size tennis court for guests to use.

Additional features of the house to note include air-conditioning in all bedrooms as well as the living room. Strong internet throughout the house.

                                                            Wonderful home in a great location

                                                            Katie G.

                                                            This was the perfect house for our family of 5. The home was clean and spacious. The owners even planted flowers in the flower boxes. That was a nice touch. Our favorite room was the screened in porch. Every morning was started with coffee and breakfast on the screened in porch. Perfect was to start the day. The deck and backyard were well maintained and also spacious. We had a clam bake on the deck with lobsters, clams and mussels. Yum. The beach is a short bike ride away. The garage was filled with beach chairs, umbrellas, and toys for our use at the beach. There is a great place to put kayaks in at the end of the road. We kayaked, paddle boarded, rode bikes, went to the drive-in, the Beachcomer in Wellfleet, Provincetown, yoga on the beach at lighthouse beach, and so much more. There is a paved bike path close by that we used often. We rode our bikes on the trail down to the Chatham Fish Pier to see the seals and have lunch at the Chatham Bars Inn. The homeowners were informative and attentive to all our questions and needs. We had such a great family vacation and will certainly rent this house again if we go back to Chatham.

                                                            Charming small authentic Cape cod old house

                                                            William A.Toronto, Ontario

                                                            Well appointed, charming and cleanish. Quaint, comfortable furnishings. The beach near the house was full of sea weeds and we had to go to other beaches.

                                                            Just to clarify the advertisement - the BBQ is charcoal and one other thing that should be mentioned is the property adjoins a small (very old) cemetery on one side of the house. Cedars block the view but FYI, if this is going to creep you out please beware of the existence. It didn't bother us at all.

                                                            The owner is very knowledgable and helpful.

                                                            Property is about 10 minute drive to downtown Chatham (not far)

                                                            It was hot when we were there and didn't need to use the houses air conditioning units (4).

                                                            Great house in wonderful location

                                                            We have enjoyed renting this wonderful home for the past ten + summers. It is very comfortable and in a perfect location. You can walk to the beautiful Forrest Street Beach or visit any number of nearby beaches. Close to charming town of Chatham that offers great shopping and dining opportunities. Very convenient to other parts of the Cape . The owners have taken great care of the house, renovated fully stocked kitchen, updated baths, comfortable furniture, great yard and deck and the BEST outdoor shower. I would highly recommend this rental and we are looking forward to our return visit this summer.
