About the property

Harding's Beach Area

New listing off of Barnhill Rd on the way to popular Harding's Beach,this updated three bedroom house offers a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere perfect for families or couples. Nestled down a private road in a quiet neighborhood of mostly seasonal homes,you will be only a short 4-5 minute stroll to Barn Hill town landing on the beautiful oyster river. Although there is no swimming beach here, it does have a public boat ramp and is a nice place to just wander to and appreciate the scenery and tranquility. Kids will love going back day after day to poke around the shore looking for horseshoe crabs or watching the local shell fishermen bring in their day's catch.

About a 15 minute walk, short bike ride or quick drive in the other direction is beautiful Harding's Beach with public facilities,lifeguards and a canteen truck.Other popular beaches,including fresh water ponds,are also close by.

The home has a nice deck with tables and chairs and a gas grill.And the adjacent brick patio offers some shade surrounded by a flowering cherry tree and perennial plantings.

The house features a cozy living room with fireplace,tv, and dvd,updated kitchen with adjoining dining area which can also serve as additional living space.Here is a spacious dining room table perfect for night time board games. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a nice island with bar stool seating. The two first floor bedrooms are furnished with twin beds.One of these easily converts to a king.The first floor bathroom has a tub and shower.

Upstairs is a master bedroom with a king size bed, TV , small deck overlooking the patio,and full bath featuring a jacuzzi tub!!

All bedrooms have ceiling fans and ac units.The livingroom also has a ceiling fan.

Besides all of the various beaches,Chatham has plenty of other activities to offer....A couple of small museums, seal watching,fishing,public tennis and basketball courts,great bike trails,golf,beach yoga,health and fitness club, kayaking,sailing ..........

At night we have many restaurants,casual pizza or fried clams to fine dining. Monomoy Theater offers a different play or musical every week, Chatham Anglers baseball under the lights at Veteran's Field, several summer concert series and the famous friday night Chatham Band concerts in Kate Gould Park.

Possible day trips from Chatham might include the JFK Museum in Hyannis,Heritage Plantation in Sandwich,Provincetown on the very tip of Cape Cod,Boston and all it's historical sights,(and Red Sox games), or take the ferry in neighboring Harwich to Nantucket.

About Bob Sneden

I was born in New York but my family moved, when I was ten years old, to Chatham, where we always spent our annual two week summer vacation.

While in high school I started mowing lawns and doing other yard work to earn money. That was a long time ago and I'm still at it! I've been running my own small landscaping maintenance business for about 40 years now with about 100 accounts,all in Chatham. Many of them are rental properties and I always thought I'd like to own a rental property of my own. Now I do!

Other interests of mine include music....I'm a big jazz fan and enjoy checking out the local live music scene. Also I am a 30 year member of the Chatham Town Band.(trombone... come up and say 'hello' if you go to the Friday night concert !). And I love traveling in the off season winter months. These days I spend a good part of the winter in Bali, Indonesia and Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Having lived here nearly my entire life, I know Chatham well and live nearby.I will be glad to help make your vacation stay as enjoyable as possible in any way I can. Need a suggestion for a local seafood restaurant? Need something to do with the kids on a rainy day?Don't hesitate to pick up the phone to ask for advice!

Great house & host!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this property! The house is in excellent condition, extremely clean, with a well-equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Easily and comfortably accommodated three generations - aging parents (grandparents) in the first floor king room, grandchildren in the twin bedroom, and my husband and I upstairs. All bedrooms could easily spacious enough for a travel crib/pack and play. The living room and dining area were large enough for our 3yo and 1yo to play freely when we were kept inside (for the better part of two days...) by the tropical storm.

The host was extremely responsive, easy to work with, and checked in by text and email a few times to be sure we had everything we needed.

We would absolutely rent this house again and strongly recommend it!!

Great location and nice home.

  • 5 of 5

Very good location, with the house situated on a quiet street, very close to Harding Beach, and a short drive into Main Street in Chatham. The house is as advertised with more than enough room for a family of 4. Overall, I would highly recommend this house for the cape. It is a great value.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We fully enjoyed our stay in Ocean port cottage. The place was really nice, well kept with all amenities. The owner Bob has maintained his property really well and we felt quite homely there. We will definately plan to come again next time and will also recommend this place to others. Thank you Bob.

Great vacation getaway

We have returned to this lovely home several times and always have a great experience. We especially enjoy the lovely enclosed garden which is a tremendous place to read, relax and getaway for a week. Location is convenient to all the Chatham highlights and Bob is a gracious host.
