About David & Evelyn Grainger

Evelyn and I (with our 3 kids) live full time in Lexington, MA. We decided to purchase a vacation home in Chatham, MA because of the short access from Boston. Chatham has all the charm and beauty as Nantucket Island has which is where we married. It just so happens Chatham is so much easier to get to than Nantucket! The location, quality, workmanship and open space of our property convinced us that this was the best value in Chatham. We hope you enjoy your stay!

David & Evelyn Grainger purchased this house in 2010

Why David & Evelyn Grainger chose Chatham

Choosing this property and location was important because of the access to the town center, Chatham A's semi-pro baseball, access to the beach and fine restaurants. Of course the house itself is the 'main' attraction which consists of high quality building materials and a open floor plan. It is perfect for a long weekend or those weeks when you have the whole extended family coming down for the week!

What makes this house unique

The wrap around porch provides 'lots' of areas for the kids to eat or just relax with puzzles and games. The kids really like the walk-out bonus room downstairs when they want to watch a movie or just get away from the parents! The property location really is unique based on the beauty, quality and openness it offers. Many folks have commented on it as a 'Beach House'. And the location, so close to town and the beach, have made this a fantastic rental property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note to thank you for letting us stay in your home during the labour day weekend. We had a great time. The house is amazing. The lobsters and oysters are incredible here, so we cooked up a storm in your amazing kitchen. Oyster Beach Inlet is just a short walk away. Our walks in Chatham center with our dog and he was a hit at all stores (Everyone here walks around with treats in their pockets). We would love to come back next summer. We'll keep in touch.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this home. It was conveniently located close to the center of town and the house had such a cozy feeling it made you feel right at home.

Evelyn and David also made it super easy to communicate with. They answered all of my questions right from the get go up until we checked out.

Thank you for opening up your beautiful home to us. We had an amazing weekend and recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Chatham.

5 star Fabulous !

  • 5 of 5

3 special couples in this special house !

The location was perfect for us ..we could walk to town ...we didn't cook a thing ( despite the fully equipped kitchen ) because there were too many great restaurants around for breakfast , lunch and dinner.. a true vacation ! the house itself was spotless and welcoming .

We will be returning next fall ..

beautiful place, perfect location, fabulous owners

  • 5 of 5

we love staying in chatham, and this house did not disappoint! there were 7 adults and 3 children, and we all had a wonderful time at this gorgeous property (our first time at this house). well stocked, beautiful kitchen with a great stove and two sinks! fabulous bose speakers, DirectTV on the main level and downstairs. bedrooms were cute and tidy, well decorated. upstairs bathroom had an amazing tub which everyone loved. the porches were bright and airy, and each had different characteristics which allowed us each to have our favorite one. also, it is in a perfect location so close to kid-friendly oyster pond beach, local theater, a park for the kids, CVS and downtown (all walkable)! the street it is on is a little busy, especially since there is no sidewalk on this side of the street, but once you cross it is AOK to walk into town (and people are very polite at stopping to let you cross). evelyn and david are VERY responsive, polite and professional. you will enjoy staying at this place! reserve your spot before it is all booked up!

A wonderful stay in beautiful Chatham, MA!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with 3 grown adult children and 5 grandchildren (ages 4 to 8) just got back from a week long stay at the Queen Anne Road property in beautiful Chatham. The purpose of our visit was to attend my son's wedding at Chatham Bars Inn. The home is located in a very convenient location; well within walking distance of any place you might want to go to while in Chatham (shops, restaurants, groceries, etc.). As for the home itself, we have rented homes in many other destination locations and I must say this is the best we have rented in terms of being well stocked, having just about everything you might need for a week's stay (including some bicycles, beach toys, cooler, plenty of glassware/plates, cleaning supplies, etc.). Finally, I cannot say enough about the owners of this home, David and Evelyn. They are absolutely the best in terms of dealing with and responding to whatever question you might have. Most times, my email questions received a response within minutes of my sending them! As for dining recommendations while in Chatham, I would highly recommend both the Del Mar and the Impudent Oyster.

Superb! Full of amenities. Great layout. Communicative owners. Wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We just finished up a dream week in Chatham on Queen Anne Road.

The home is beautiful, well-appointed and the layout worked perfectly for our group. (10 total - 6 adults and 4 kids :: ages 1-6)

David and Evelyn made the rental super easy with timely and informative communication.

The location also makes for a great base... so many activities within walking/biking distance and a summer's worth of activities were only a short drive from the house... ie. go karts, putt-putt, Wellfleet Audubon activities, crystal clear ponds, Orleans, and so much more.

Great spot - can't wait to go back!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family, consisting of my husband and I (both in our 60s), our kids who are in their 30s and two grandsons (3 and 6) just returned home from a week in Chatham. Every one of us had the best time staying in this lovely home is such a beautiful place.

The property is casual and homey with a well-equipped kitchen and plenty of outdoor areas to enjoy. It is walkable to shops, movie theatre, bay beach and grocery store.

It is on a busy street so we had to be extra careful with the little ones but it is worth the convenience and there are gates outside for some protection.

We enjoyed both Oyster Pond and Hardings Beach and walked into town every night for shopping and exploring. We did the seal watch and visited the Shark Center, which was perfect for the grandsons.

Evelyn made sure, that if we needed anything while we were there, she was available. The owners were happy to answer any questions regrading the area and attractions.

We really had a wonderful family vacation!!!
