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! 😃

Beautiful home and gardens

  • 5 of 5

We were totally satisfied and happy with our week at The Romantic Cottage in Cape Cod. The home was wonderfully furnished, fully stocked with all necessary supplies and has a backyard garden almost too beautiful to describe. Great location in a quiet, residential neighborhood. It is a perfect "Cape Cod home".

Happy Retirees & family

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful! Exceeded all my expecations. Owners was a delight and so helpful. Cottage was Spotless, everything about it was clean and organized. Location was perfect...had no idea Chatham was an adorable and awesome little town. Beds were very comfortable and the outdoor shower was the Best! There were 5 adults and 2 grandsons, 12 & 14 and everyone loved the Cottage. We went on the Whalewatching Cruise, Ferry to MV & Nantucket, Zip Line in Sandwich, several different beaches, wonderful resturants that Dore' recommended.....a wonderful week for celebrating family and 50th anniversary.

review of adorable antiique cottage in chatham, cape cod

  • 5 of 5

recently my husband, son and daughter-in-law and their baby spent a delightful week at the antique cottage in's not an antique! It's a wonderful, fully equipped, air conditioned house within walking distance of two beaches with a lovely screen porch and a delightful back yard. The house was tastefully decorated but very comfortable. Beach equipment, a gas grill, chairs, toys, games, internet, two tvs-the house had it all...and it was immaculate. Having rented other homes, I can highly recommend this cottage for anyone who loves the Cape and wants to be in Chatham.

Great cottage, wonderful vacation for us!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the antique cottage!! We had 4 adults and two small boys, and the cottage was a perfect choice for us. The cottage is so unique and charming, and the boys loved exploring the home and the property outside. Everything was perfectly clean and well kept, and the house was equipped with everything we needed. There are many beaches within a short drive (or even a short walk). Chatham is a charming town and in a convenient location on the cape to explore other towns. We were all pleased with the house and very sad to leave. Thanks for the great experience!!

Idyllic stay at charming, well equipped Chatham cottage.

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a fantastic reunion at this wonderful home in September. The property was even better than we expected. it was very well equipped and I could tell that the owner (Dore) had given a lot of thought to every amenity that is there. You can walk right into this house and you have everything that you need for a wonderful vacation. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, there was a wonderful state of the art barbecue in the backyard, a complete library of up to date books, all sorts of games, beach chairs and umbrella, etc. During the week i was there, 5 of us stayed there off and on and there was ample room for everybody. The porch and kitchen were wonderful and the grounds are beautifully landscaped. The house is very accessible to several restaurants and some really beautiful beaches. The house was spotlessly clean and the owner Dore was lovely and very accommodating whenever we needed her to answer questions, etc.

My friends and I have been renting homes in various locations for over 10 years and this was one of the very best. Thank you Dore. Your generous hospitality was sincerely appreciated and we definitely plan to return sometime.

Our favorite restaurant near the house was L'Alouette in Harwich, which is a wonderful French Bistro. it is reasonably priced with great food.
