Chatham House Rental Photos and Description

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.

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!

Beautiful home great location

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family including our dog. The house was spotless with everything we needed. We loved the private area for the master bedroom and bath on the second floor. The neighborhood is very peaceful, neighbors were friendly. The enclosed yard was very cozy and convenient for us and our dog. Bob was very attentive and helpful. The location was perfect for walking to Harding's Beach and driving the short distance to downtown Chatham.

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a fantastic trip to Cape Cod and enjoyed our stay in Chatham. The house was just great for us and our dog. We had beautiful walks on Harding's Beach each day. So centrally located to visit both Provincetown and the ferry to Nantucket. The restaurants in Chatham are amazing. So much to see on the Cape. We hope to come back again. Bob, the owner, was awesome and made sure we had everything we needed.

Favorite thing!! Outside shower!

Nicest rental in 25 years

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been renting cottages and houses in various towns of Cape Cod for over 25 years. I think I found the one I will stay with again, finally! The house is a "home". Meaning it has the qualities of an owner who takes pride in it and wants the renter to be happy. It is very clean. It has been updated when it was bought and the newness is apparent. I loved the kitchen and probably cooked more this year than any other at the Cape because it was so user friendly. The floor layout was open and breezy and we never felt like we were in one another's way. My husband and I stayed in the upstairs master bedroom which was clean and so private. I loved the NEW washer and dryer! Two downstairs bedrooms were large. One room the twin beds were put together to make a king and it was SO comfortable! The second had twins , which were also comfortable. Another favorite area was the enclosed deck with the table and gas grill. I spent most mornings reading here in the tranquility of quiet and the beauty of the wild roses and other lovely landscape surrounding the area. AND because , I love the beach, Harding Beach being my favorite, I had only to walk 20 minutes or drive less than a few minutes to go there. A daily pass costs $15 which is nothing to have the luxury to go back and forth whenever all in one day. As everyone has said in the reviews, you couldn't ask for a nicer or less intrusive tenant than Bob. I'd like to keep this place a secret but he deserves to be recognized for this beautiful property.

Perfect honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to spend our honeymoon in Chatham. The location couldn't be more perfect. It's only a street over from Hardings Beach and a few minutes from downtown Chatham. Bob was such a pleasure renting from and made us feel very welcome - especially with our 3 year old dog :)

The home was impeccably clean, beautifully furnished and had everything you could possibly need. The outdoor space was private and peaceful. Bob made sure to let us know he'd be available for anything we needed during our stay and checked in to make sure everything was going well.

If you're looking for the perfect Chatham home, look no further. Bob has made this such a positive and wonderful experience that my husband and I will be renting from him again every summer going forward. Thank you, Bob, for giving us wonderful memories in your beautiful home!

Fantastic place for a break from it all

  • 5 of 5

Brought friends visiting from Scotland with small children here, it was a great house, nice and quiet and clean! Good for walking the dog as well down to Harding Beach. Not too far from downtown Chatham either for walking Bob was fantastic - checking in when we arrived, and helping when the trash pickup was off due to the holiday. Couldn't have asked for a better place for the week!

Perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

Brought my parents to the Cape to celebrate my dad's 70th birthday. The house easily accommodated my wife, two small children and parents. Facilities were clean and had everything one could possibly need. Actually, a bit more spacious than anticipated and the outdoor patio was easy to enjoy. If you are looking for a place that will provide some quiet time after a day of running about the Cape, this is it!

Exceptional location too! Harding's was the perfect beach for the little ones and parents alike. I even got some great fishing in here and there. Short ride to all the great shops and sites in Chatham. The owner was a pleasure to work with. I'd rent again in a heart beat. In fact, as I'm writing this I think it's time to give Bob a call... I miss the Cape!
