My family and I live full time in Lexington, MA. We decided to purchase our first vacation home in Chatham, MA in 2008. While the main reason was the proximity to our home near Boston, we also realized how much Chatham reminded us of our time on Nantucket Island. Chatham has all the charm and beauty as Nantucket Island, which is where we married. This was our first purchase and because of the experience, quality of life, great memories and including the fantastic year-round vibe, we decided to purchase an additional property and begin our long-term investment in the town and surrounding area. This property with its nautical theme and original refurbished floors, will provide a unique experience for guests that want to have some privacy from the downtown crowds but also be within a mile of Chatham Harbor, Chatham Bars Inn and Downtown Chatham Center.
Beautiful year-round vacation home with finished hardwood floors throughout and a beautiful tile bathtub & shower off the master first floor bedroom. The kitchen has nice finished wood countertops with all the appliances. Includes year-round Heat and A/C throughout on those humid days/evenings! Two bedrooms up and two bedrooms down!
Giant deck in fully fenced in backyard takes full advantage of both sun and yard area. Spring, summer & fall seasonal ping pong table, above ground firepit, volleyball net, and fenced in hot/cold outdoor shower.
Beach chairs (6+) and bikes (2+)
Include cooler/wheels and beach trolley (other kids beach items) Huge stainless-steel grill (direct gas hookup) on backyard brick porch.
Spring/Summer garage loft open (no HVAC) for guest overflow or just kids that want some extra privacy!

About David & Evelyn Grainger
Evelyn and I (with our 3 children) 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! This was our first purchase and because of the experience and the quality of life we have had vacationing in Chatham we have pursued additional properties and decided to create a business around vacation rentals that caters to families and friends that want to enjoy Chatham and the surrounding area while also staying in professional quality, clean and well stocked lodgings that are within a short distance to sightseeing and Chatham Downtown. We look forward to providing you a well-deserved vacation or just long weekend away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We hope you enjoy your stay! David & Evelyn Grainger

Why David & Evelyn Grainger chose North Chatham
Being in North Chatham and one mile north of the Chatham Bars Inn this location gives us great access to the Atlantic Ocean side beaches, Pleasant Bay and Downtown without running into any major traffic. Having a great coffee, pastry/muffin, sandwich, and ice cream (Chatham Perks) and cold beverages (Chatham Light Liquors) within a minute walking distant is a huge plus. We also have plenty of parking in the large driveway and have an irrigation system to insure green grass all thru the peak season! The reality is this property is in a fantastic location, should check off every item on your vacation list and is well maintained by professionals and family TLC.
What makes this House unique
The quality of the house and condition, including the fact there is a huge fenced in backyard with a large deck and room for fun outdoor activities, reading a book or just simple sun bathing is great. The firepit (portable) and all-weather table top tennis is fantastic and lots of fun! The outdoor hard lined gas grill has plenty of space to entertain with lots of grilling options for your guests. Additional benefits include year-round heat, A/C, flat screen /Comcast cable TV and HIGH-SPEED CABLE INTERNET! And don’t forget the unfinished loft above the garage has plenty of character and is a great spot for young teenagers and a fun “away” location to play games, sleep and just get some time away from the adults!

Favorite Vacation House in Chatham
When we walked through the door, we were so thrilled with how meticulously clean it was! Because this is our second summer renting Evelyn and Dave's lovely Chatham home, we felt right at home! The bedrooms are so comfortable and the loft over the garage was great for our 19 year old daughter and her few friends who spent a couple of nights with us. Although the weather wasn't as great as we would have liked, we still enjoyed a few good beach days down at Ridgevale Beach and some competitive Kan-Jam tournaments in the spacious backyard. Our 2 non shedding dogs love this house as much as we do; we've already booked next year's summer vacation. Thanks Evelyn and Dave!
Excellent place to stay with a family!
We had a GREAT time in Chatham and this property was great for our big family. We loved the fenced in yard with children and a grand dog! The house was really clean and well appointed. The backyard was a great place to cookout and entertain in the evenings. My family loved the ping pong table! Excellent location. Close to town and the bike trail. We would definitely recommend this property and stay here again!
Thank you all for leaving the property in such fantastic condition!
Glad you had a great week and would love to see you back next year!
We had a great stay at David and Evelyn's home. This really felt like a home away from home. Great property. Very clean, comfortable and a great yard. Awesome location to. Minutes to Chatham Bars Inn, Chatham fish market, Main St and Lazy Lobster and the Shark museum right across the street was great. David and Evelyn were great throughout the whole process as well. We've been renting on the Cape for years now and they were by far the most responsive and accommodating. Evelyn even offered to set us up with a babysitter during our stay. That was a first and much appreciated that we were dealing with someone who would go above and beyond like that. Would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Chatham.
Thank you for the kind referral.
We would love to see you next year!

Worked out great. Well stocked and maintained.
Thoughtfully orchestrated getaway. If they don't have it, you don't need it...
We were in town for a weekend wedding and were happy with our decision to stay here. We piled in 2 grandparents, 2 kids and 4 adults and had plenty of room and distractions to pass the time we weren't being wedding guests. Although not really walk-able to downtown, this location is self-sufficient enough to get there and forget the rest.
Great house, nice amenities and big back yard for a great week in Chatham
The house didn't disappoint. The garage was great to have, keeping our bikes covered and for loading/unloading. Well- equipped kitchen and comfortable furnishings. The house was clean and well maintained, with nice touches regarding supplies such as toilet paper, paper towels and soaps, etc. The owners got back with us quickly with questions we had. I would recommend this property for a wonderful stay in Chatham. We did need to drive to our destinations, restaurants, grocery store, but everything was close enough and we were able to get to the bike trail easily for walking and biking. The back yard was handy for our dog to stretch her legs in the morning. And she had fun taking walks on the Colony Trail and a visit to Thompson's Field. Thanks for such a nice house to enjoy our Cape Cod vacation.
Get to downtown Chatham and all surrounding beaches. Also Lighthouse Beach, Chatham Bars Inn and Oyster Pond Inlet.
