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.

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!

Our family, dog included, had a great week in this house. We walked to Harding Beach every morning with our dog. Our 2 sons, ages 16 and 19, each had their own room. The house had everything we needed and was so nice and airy. We really felt at home and comfortable. We would walk to the local marina every night and watch the boats, there's also a kyack rental place there. Convenient drive to all the places we love in the Chatham area.

House was very clean and ready for us when we arrived. We got a nice warm welcome from Bob, the owner.

Great rental and great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a rental house that I will definitely be coming back to. It was clean, homey and has a great patio area. I also really liked how the house came with beach chairs and a cooler to use while you were there. Bob was very accommodating and we really enjoyed our stay!

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.
