Off season months : Off season months in Chatham are lovely too. Wonderful walking and biking. Many days are brilliant sun and others are rain. . Whatever the weather, the house is warm and snug and nothing nicer that to read or watch movies or TV in the evenings by the Vermont Castings gas stove. The sunroom is a lovely place to relax, so sunny and warm even on a windy chilly day.

About Carolyn Johnstone - owner

We live in New London NH in the summer and in the Chatham house during the winter. making it available for rental in the summer.

Carolyn Johnstone - owner purchased this house in 2010

Why Carolyn Johnstone - owner chose West Chatham

The location is quiet and private. It is on a circle so only local traffic

the yard is fenced on three sides with a movable fourth side (so landscapers can get in ) making the yard and deck very private. We are in West Chatham a mile from Hardings Beach so price is more affordable than beach houses. We are also very near the bike trail.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home is lovely, we particularly loved the sunroom, warm and cozy, so close to the outdoors. Our grandson found birds and squirrels very entertaining. (excerpts from our guest book)

Owner's Response: Sorry it was not it's usual immaculate self. We start the season with ironed pillow cases and all perfect, but by September , after continuous use, it needs time for a deep clean,, especially in the fall when crickets and cobwebs are looking for a winter home. So glad you enjoyed the sunroom, in the winter I move all the geraniums in and it is a most delightful greenhouse. Thanks C.

Location was OK, but the house was dirty

  • 3 of 5

We have rented many summers in different Home Away properties. All charge cleaning fees, and until this house, all were super-clean. This house was not clean. The carpets were stained and dirty. The bathrooms were dirty under sinks--there were finger prints on walls, etc. We just weren't impressed. There were dust and cob webs under furniture and on walls, etc. We did love the sun room, however.

Owner's Response: So sorry this happened to you. Unfortunately that Saturday was an owner's nightmare. The tenants before you for some reason thought they were leaving on Sunday. They went to the beach and didn't return until after 1:00 in spite of phone messages. texts and emails.. The cleaners had to clean while the tenants packed up their possessions and those of their two small children, giving them a window of two hours instead of the usual 5. Obviously this was not enough time for a through clean. I would like to reimburse your cleaning charge as a way of saying how sorry I am. Carolyn

The house was attractive and had everything you would need or want

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely. We spent a ton of time enjoying the screened in dining and lounge area. It was so peaceful and serene.

The kitchen was well stocked and the beds comfortable. The house was clean and clearly well cared for.
