Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)
What makes this Cottage unique
Summer Wind is a private cottage on White Pond, Chatham Massachusetts. Off the main roads but close to the beaches and down town it is a great place for a family vacation or get-a-way weekend. Yes you can swim in the pond at the beach house any time you want :) Cheers!

Very cute camp in a convenient location to town and local beaches. Small, but perfect for 3 or 4 and has all the amenities (minus w/d) that you could need. The addition of the kayak and rowboat was wonderful, kids used them each day!
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was clean and efficient and we liked knowing this was our "homebase". Very close to shopping and restaurants in the area. We would definitely stay here Gain.
Summer Wind Week
Everything was very good except for wonky shower valve and pollen everywhere. Not much can be done about the pollen. We very much enjoyed the Cape.
Thank you for you kind review. I am glad you had a good holiday!
I cannot help the pollen, it is just that time of the year, but we have scheduled the outdoor shower and faucet to be replaced this fall.
I will look at the indoor shower and see if that faucet can be replaced with one that is easier to read.
I appreciate your suggestion. We are always trying to improve the cottage and make your holiday a good time and a happy memory.
Cute Cozy Cottage
We enjoyed our stay at Paul's cottage for our Cape cod fishing trip! The cottage has a nice aluminum paddle boat which we used to catch some nice bass at White pond. I even caught a 4 pounder largie by the boat house! There are also Kayaks available to use. Life vests of all sizes are also available. We had the pond to ourselves during our stay. There were a few renters/residents from the other cottages, but we maybe saw them for only a day or two. We mostly had the pond and the cottage community to ourselves when we visited.
The nearby beach is very clean and clear, so kids can do some swimming by the boat house. Nickerson state park is also 15 minutes away and it’s a good place to do some hiking, fishing and biking. There are also a several ponds around the area to do some shore fishing. Also, Chatham has a nice downtown with lots of restaurants/bars to try. There’s also a nearby lighthouse and windmill if you’re planning to do some touristy things. The Monomoy wildlife refuge is also a short drive away.
As for the cottage, it had everything that we needed for our 1 week stay.
We used the griller in the backyard which I think is new. The backyard has a bench and some chairs where you can hang our while grilling your food. Also, the parking spot is just behind the backyard.
For the master’s bedroom. the mattresses were of good quality. Linens and towels were clean and smelled good. The cottage also had screened porches with entrances from the bedrooms too. The window type AC did a good job cooling the room. There’s also a ceiling fan if you don’t want to use the AC. Portable heaters are also available to use. There are also 2 small TVs in both rooms (with cable).
As for the kitchen, it had all the kitchen and dining ware we needed to prepare and cook our food. The dining table is kind of small but it can fit 5. You can always go to the spacious deck area or backyard to hangout and eat.
The cottage has 1.5 bathrooms which is nice. The master’s had the 0.5. The kid’s bedroom is where the showers at. The water pressure is also strong. The water also did not have any funny smell. There is also an enclosed outdoor shower in the backyard if you plan on doing some pond swimming.
The welcome package that Paul prepared for his guests is very helpful. All the information you need from checking in to checking out the house is all in there. If you have questions, Paul is easily accessible by text or phone.
Weekend at the Cottage 😊
Great cottage! Was just what I expected. Loved the kayaks. Will come again.
Cramped, but nice. Not waterfront.
The photos don't really represent the property. They give the impression that it is waterfront, which it is not. Cottages are very close together, and there's only one parking spot. The cottage itself was nice, cozy and comfortable. The shower stall is cruise ship sized. I feel as though if I knew all of this I would have rented elsewhere.
Downtown Chatham has some beautiful stores and restaurants to shop, dine and unwind. This is a real old fashioned comfortable Cape Cod town. You can visit the penny candy store or ice cream shops. If you can catch the Friday night band concert on the town green. You have to get there early as it does fill up quickly.
The sports minded can golf at the Chatham Bars golf course, bike or jog on the Cape Bike Trail or charter a deep sea fishing excursion. Tour the Chatham lighthouse and take in the view at Lighthouse Beach. This is the southernmost beach of the Cape Cod National Sea Shore and it is outstanding.
