A gem!

  • 5 of 5

Property was as described. It is small, but just enough for the two of us. The guest book indicated that a few renters had one or two small kids, but I can't imagine it with 4 adults or even 2 older children. The sitting/LR only seats 3 and the TV is small 27". The steps to the loft are VERY steep and narrow, no one with any knee/walking problem. Clean and rustic with great old wall murals. Grounds were great w/outside shower (we never used the inside shower). Grounds are shared with two other rentals but good plantings make it fairly private, however if you had partiers in the other rentals it might be too much, we were lucky and had great neighbors. Also dogs would share this lawn. The house is right against (in fact you park in it) a boatyard for wooden boats so you may hear hammering and sawing. As sailors we were right at home. While small, the owners have made great use of space with hidden shelves, hooks etc. for storage, however the kitchen/food storage areas are small. Table folds to increase space. I wouldn't plan any big meals not done on the grill. We will be back.

Artist's Cottage in Chatham

  • 5 of 5

I spent a beautiful and relaxing week in Chatham with a group of friends. We occupied all three of the cottages located on this beautiful property, the Artist's Cottage, the Captain's House, and the Windmill. My personal favorite was the Artist's Cottage - so cozy and comfortable, and decorated with fabulous original old murals. We used the larger Captain's House for our homebase and group meals and activities, but the smaller cottages were also very well-equipped and functional. The property was perfectly located for us to walk nearly everywhere we wanted to go. These historic buildings have been updated to give their visitors all the modern conveniences, while retaining their vintage charm and character, and they are very well maintained. Even the flower beds and huge holly hedges were special, harboring many birds, including a gorgeous male cardinal. I would happily stay here again and will certainly recommend it to friends.
