South Chatham Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1full bath, sleeps 4; open LR/DR area, full kitchen, large deck

This salt waterfront Cockle Cove neighborhood cottage has been renovated inside and out; provides large deck and shaded patio with amazing views over tidal Taylor's Pond; shares our private dock for boating and kayaking; and is an easy 4/10th mile walk or bike ride to a Nantucket Sound beach. Recently re-shingled, the cottage has gleaming hardwood floors, a light “beachy” décor, updated bath with tub/shower combination, large enclosed outdoor shower, bright open living/dining floor plan & well-equipped kitchen. The cottage has two bedrooms (1with a queen and 1 BR with two twin beds) and partial basement (with laundry) for storing bikes, kayaks and other large gear. Off-street parking for 2 cars, and easily accessible for seniors or those who have difficulty with stairs.

Taylor's Pond is an ancient “kettle pond” that has been connected to Nantucket Sound by the sea. It has tidal salt water and supports amazing seasonal bird populations, including herons, egrets, ospreys, king fishers, geese, etc. Striped bass and blues visit on the high tides to chase schools of bait fish. You can kayak, canoe, paddle board or boat in the pond from our private dock; or connect through the Mill Creek channel into a large estuary/marsh and out into Nantucket Sound.

Cockle Cove Beach (a short 4/10 mile walk or ride down the hill) is one of Chatham's best town beaches with no stairs & easy accessability, expansive room for jogging/beach combing; warm, calm & safe swimming; and clamming & surf casting.

This great South Chatham location provides safe, quiet 'away from it all' ambience, but is within 10 minutes' drive of the best shopping, dining and local club venues in Chatham & Harwich Port and exit 11 on the mid-Cape hwy. On the Cape's 'elbow,' it is 40 minutes from the bridges, within 30 minutes of Hyannis and the national seashore and is under one hour to Province Town.

Relaxing week!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in the upper cottage this past week. The cottage was as described in the listing. The area was quiet & relaxing. Close to downtown Chatham with plenty of good restaurants if you choose to go out to eat. Tom & Sharon made themselves available to us if we had any questions or concerns. The only thing I think the cottage could use is an a/c. I would recommend the cottage to family & friends. Great place to go if you have 2 families vacationing together because you can rent the upper & lower cottage. Thanks Tom & Sharon !

Owner's Response: We're pleased you enjoyed the cottage, our waterfront location as well as the easy access to the beach, Chatham and the area's natural and tourist attractions. Thanks for the suggestion regarding the AC unit. We were impressed with the gear you brought; including your canoe with outboard motor to use our dock to explore the pond, the bird life in the salt marsh & head all the way out to the Sound; your bikes to ride down to the beach & access the regional trails; your awesome jeep to access the National Seashore beach in Truro/P-Town and the window AC unit. You obviously know what you're doing when it comes to vacation planning!! We'll consider recommending a portable AC unit to other guests, or purchasing a small bedroom window unit for those few, but uncomfortable peak temperature afternoons. We're very fortunate for our favorable "micro-climate;" with cool onshore breezes picking up from Nantucket Sound each afternoon and the shaded deck/cottage temps on the pond dropping into the 70's (at least 10 degrees cooler than our neighbors across the road) from 6 pm on. The fans normally make temps quite comfortable by dinner and bed time. The weeks before and after your stay were cooler, with night time lows in the 60's. We actually needed blankets vs. AC. We hope to see you again next year. Tom & Sharon

Perfect spot for a group!

  • 5 of 5

The cottages were fantastic! I went with a group of 8 people, 4 in each cottage and it was perfect! Everyone kept raving about the place(s) and asking me how I found them! The cabins were super cute, and both decks had a great view of the gorgeous lake. We walked down to Cockle Cove beach which was quiet and small but perfect for us, especially because all of the other Chatham beaches were closed for shark sightings. I would definitely recommend this vacation spot to anyone looking for a Cape get away. We did not want to leave. The property was clean and neat when we arrived, and we could tell the owners took very good care of it. Thanks Tom and Sharon!
