See current movies at the newly renovated Chatham Cinema and the new Marconi Wireless Museum is fascinating for everyone.

Chatham Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Brad G.

The house and location were as described. The house was well equipped, clean, and had plenty of room for a large family. Especially enjoyed the deck and new grill. The basement had a bedroom, full bath, and a large room with big screen tv which was perfect for the older kids to be on their own.

Barb (owner) was exceptional with follow up communication to make our vacation even better. Especially liked the personal touch of fresh flowers in the kitchen.

Would highly recommend

Owner's Response: We really enjoyed having Brad and his Family in Chatham. The Lower level space was perfect for the older kids who had their own Family Room, TV, bath and bedroom. Brad went out of his way to take care of the house and lawn as we do and we certainly appreciated his concern. ( He kept the grass green!!!). Families like his are a perfect match for the house, from the space in the house and deck, the proximity to the beaches and Town, and especially the School House Ice Cream just down the street. We would love them to return next season if The Cape is in their plans.

Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

The owner and home were lovely. We vacationed here for a week of the 4th of July holiday and I can tell you it's the perfect location to take a nice walk to the quiet beach down the road (exactly a mile walk!) or a nice drive into town - passing ice cream shops, bakeries, adorable souvenir shops, and delicious restaurants! The Chatham A's play about 3 miles down the road and we were able to watch 2 games! The lighthouse beach yoga everyday at 7AM will get you up and ready for the day.

This home and town were the perfect family place. We barbecued every night on the big back wrap around deck. The outdoor shower was perfect for after beach rinses. The big front yard was perfect for kids to play and such a quiet neighborhood made nights very peaceful. The owner was nothing but helpful and incredibly communicative about move-in ready updates and questions throughout our stay. The lower level allows a lot of privacy from the main floor which was helpful for our guests.

Thanks again for everything!!

Owner's Response: We loved having Elisabeth and her Family for 4th of July week in Chatham. There are so many activities for an active Family like hers to enjoy, from the Beach, to The Chatham A's Baseball, to ice cream shops and fantastic restaurants, and the house is a perfect welcoming home base. The Webber Grill was put to wonderful use and the large deck allowed everyone to eat outside. The space and privacy in the house allowed room to relax and fully enjoy vacation together. We would welcome Elisabeth and her Family back to Chatham anytime.

Fantastic Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Barbara's home. The house was spotless, comfortable and had everything we needed. Our kids (10 & 6 years) loved having the basement to themselves and the front yard was a perfect place for them to play. It was a short drive down to Cockle Cove Beach every morning for exploring (you can also walk). We love staying in Chatham, the downtown is lovely, it's easy to access the rest of the Cape, the Chatham Anglers baseball games are lots of fun and the view from the porch at the Chatham Bars Inn is beautiful . Thank you Barbara for being so attentive and a pleasure to interact with, we look forward to renting your home again.

Owner's Response: Kristine and her Family, including 2 children, enjoyed the house and made full use of the space, including the "takeover"of the lower level as the " kid's space". They loved it! They also enjoyed Chatham, such a "Family Friendly" Town and explored other areas of the Cape easily. We totally enjoyed working with this Family to make a Cape Vacation a truly memorable experience. We would love to have them back.

Wonderful Home, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Just enjoyed a week at this beautiful home! Can't say enough about the home, the location, and Barbara the owner! From the winter when we booked, Barbara was wonderful, always available for questions, and following up to tell us how excited SHE was for OUR vacation!!! We arrived to find the most beautiful home in a perfect location, minutes from town, short drive / walk to the beach! There were 8 of us at the home, including 2 teenage boys, and 2 younger teenage girls, and we had plenty of space! Boys enjoyed their own "pad" in the basement and the home is equipped with absolutely everything you need! The neighbours are wonderful too, even pointing out the local baseball team schedule for our boys after finding out they were ball players! The Cape is a favourite vacation spot of ours and renting this home was the best way for us to enjoy our vacation. Thank you Barbara for such a wonderful week, we truly felt spoiled!

Owner's Response: Elaine and her Family were such an appreciative and fun-loving Family. They enjoyed the house fully and the lower level living space was perfect as a "get-away" for teens ( or adults). The house has enough space to accommodate this Family without crowding them and also, has places to get away for some "quiet" time too. From the Chatham Baseball Team to the Beaches to just Fun Family Time, they totally enjoy each other and made many more great Cape memories. I would love to welcome them back next year to enjoy the house and Chatham.

Comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in a quiet neighborhood. We stayed the last week in August 2015. The house was clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of closets. We had eight people in the house and it didn't feel cramped. We all felt we had plenty of space. We enjoyed the semi-private deck, which was also a good size with comfortable seating. One side of the deck faces a wooded area.

It is a 15-20 minute walk to Cockle Cove beach. There is a $15.00 parking fee per day if you need to bring the car. There are also many ponds close by that have free parking.

There is a large Stop and Shop less than a 10 minute drive away. Chatham Main Street is not far (maybe 10 minutes). It had a lot of free parking (but a couple of times we had to be patient and wait for a space), many shops/boutiques and a few restaurants.

Chatham is a lovely area and is centrally located on the Cape. We ventured to Eastham, Provincetown and Hyannis.

The owner, Barbara Dolan, provided excellent service. She was very nice and accommodating. She even called us on our way up to tell us we could check in early!! She made us feel like it was important to her that we were comfortable in her home.

I would definitely stay in this property again. It's a lovely home.

Owner's Response: My thanks to Dolores and her Family for being such wonderful renters and for this thorough review of the house and of the Chatham area. I couldn't ask for a more thoughtful and considerate Family - they really cared for the house as if it were their own. I am grateful for the specifics they included in their review and know it will help other Families make their Chatham vacation decisions. Thank you again to Dolores, and would love to have her and her Family back to Chatham, when their plans bring them back to The Cape.

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house for a week with 6 adults, a 2 1/2 yr. toddler and a 5 month old. Plenty of room, very kid friendly and comfortable. The lower level is great for older kids or adults who want a little separation from the tiny ones.

The location of the house is central to most everything you might want to do with easy access to beaches, Cape Cod baseball and shopping. It is just a short drive to Provincetown and the Ferry to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.

The property is well maintained and the owner handles any problem promptly.

We enjoyed our week and would rent this house again when visiting the area.

Owner's Response: Marsha and her Family deserve my thanks for being such great Renters. Upon arrival, they set out to explore the area and discovered many of Chatham's unique features. The house supported their very active lifestyle and provided a perfect "home base"for all the adventures they had. I hope they visit Chatham again and would welcome them in any Season.
