"Perfect" Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

The antique cottage was so perfect for our week's stay. We traveled to the Cape to attend our son's wedding in Harwich Port, MA. The cottage was super clean, well stocked & the owner provided us w/plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella & plenty of beach toys, which my 2 1/2 yr. old granddaughter used. My granddaughter loved her crib & cozy bedroom area... & keeps talking about the books that were left for her to read in her crib when we first arrived! The cottage has so much history & I just loved all the antique furniture, features, etc. It had beautiful beams, moldings & two fireplaces. It also had beautiful, well-groomed grounds & landscaping. Plenty of picnic tables, a gas grill, and even an outside shower w/cold & hot water, which my son-in-law used after he went jogging down by the beach & marshland areas. He said the sights were spectacular during his runs! I loved, loved, loved the cottage & would definitely stay there again w/my family. Dore, the owner, was so accommodating and very pleasant. She definitely wanted us to be stress-free & enjoy our stay. The cottage is located in such close proximity to beautiful beaches, restaurants, uptown Chatham, etc. We LOVED Chatham with all its beautiful & unique shops, restaurants, etc...I could picture myself living was so beautiful. Thanks Dore for a delightful & wonderful experience staying @ your unique cottage. My family & I created many memorable & wonderful memories that will last a lifetime! Thank you.

Antique Chatham Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The home and property was perfect. We found that Dore' had it well stocked with everything that was needed. We have been traveling to Cape Cod for more than thirty years and this was one of our best homes to rent.

A great Cape rental

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything: 2 indoor full baths, wifi, air conditioning, gas &charcoal grills, tiki torches in the outdoor seating area. The outdoor shower was large. Cleaner and tidier than I expected of a rental. All kitchen appliances anyone could want + towels, chairs, coolers for beach.

Beautiful cottage in South Chatham

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage in South Chatham with 5 minutes walk to the beach.

We celebrated a family week with our children and grandchildren, 8 of us together, and there was comfortable space for all of us. Nicely furnished with lovely backyard.

Kitchen was appointed with everything one can dream of while on vacation, including spices and tea assortment. Highly recommended. - Barbara

Absolutely perfect...exceeded all our expectation!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, so comfortable, beds were wonderful, loved, loved the outdoor shower, the kitchen was equipped with everything! The glassed/screened porch was a treat! We enjoyed sitting out there every morning & in the evenings.. The owner was so helpful - her recommdations for restaurants were outstanding. It was a perfect week with our family of 7, (5 adults & 2 grandsons, 12 & 14.) Everyone loved the cottage, the location & all the activities nearby. Lots of beaches....... Chatham is an adorable little town & we thank Dore' for sharing her lovely home with us for a week of lots of fun, family & great food! 😃
