Overview

Chatham House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Ideal for extended families or larger groups. Walking distance from popular Ridgevale Beach (less than half of a mile), and only two miles from downtown Chatham, this 4,000 square foot home is a luxurious retreat for those who enjoy quality. Spacious modern kitchen, multiple eating areas for large groups, plenty of quality cookware, glassware and utensils. The home also has an incredibly spacious, private backyard with expansive back deck overlooking the yard, so relaxed playtime is easy. Have fun on the 15' Netted Trampoline! Great for kids and adults alike. Get the grill going, pour an afternoon cocktail, and relax when returning from the beach (do not forget to turn your cell-phone off!!). 2 crystal clear freshwater ponds nearby. Close to everything!

There is plenty of room for everyone - a king bed in the master suite with newly installed hardwood floors, an additional newly-renovated king bedroom, another newly-renovated queen bedroom with a custom-built bunk set (one of which is hidden), and another bedroom complete with a private nook with 2 Custom built-in Beds. The basement is newly finished with a bunk bed. The bedrooms are a Kid's paradise- just fun sleeping locations! Three full bathrooms upstairs (including an amazing bathroom with a large corner jacuzzi tub and dual shower in the master bath) - and two half baths on the first floor. Another plus is TWO laundry rooms (one on each floor)- so those wet, sandy clothes will not pile up.

This is certainly a house that you will not feel cramped in, especially if it's rainy or foggy and not your typical beach day.

Speaking of which, if it rains or is foggy, who cares. Enjoy the newly finished basement or go and jump on the enclosed trampoline in the backyard. Enjoy movies with surround sound in the living room, or go to one of the master bedrooms and watch some sports game in solitude on the flatscreen TVs, all with HD cable.

This is a very rare rental property so close to Ridgevale Beach due to both the house and yard size. If you stay here, we guarantee you'll want to come back! We have had many repeat families over the years.

About Chris Van Vleck

We have raised our family of 3 boys in Chatham. We love all outdoor sports, including clamming, fishing and lobstering in the summer. We live here year round, but like to give other families the opportunity to enjoy this fabulous location.

Our Boys play football at Nauset High School coached by former Greenbay Packers Head Coach, Mike Sherman. The boys have been featured on NBC Sports, and they made an episode filmed at our house. Google: Sherman's Warriors and you can see our house and yard which was shot in the Fall.

Chris Van Vleck purchased this house in 2001

Why Chris Van Vleck chose Chatham

This property is special because it is so close to Ridgevale beach, yet is on a very quiet street, with a large private back yard. Unlike many other places that are 4 bedroom, our house is very large and open for group entertaining with lots of living space. All bedrooms are upstairs, and have been custom built and designed with fun spaces, especially for kids.

This was a wonderful property. We were a party fo 6 adults and 3 children under 4 years old. This a very child friendly house. There were many toys and books for the children. The fenced backyard and the swing/slide set were perfect. The kitchen and eating area were very large and a great gathering place.The house was large with plenty of room to spread out. We would definitely recommend this house.

Great house even better location.Four adults and three kids ages 5, 6 and 9 walked to the beach each day with the red wagon full of beach gear.Kitchen is fantastic, meals for the house and guests were a pleasure to cook. Everyone could gather and help with all the space.The sunny deck allowed the parents to relax in the afternoon sun while the kids played in the yard.Split the cost between two families and the value can’t be beat.

This is a marvelous house! It is convenient to everything and the owners have made it welcoming and comfortable. We were 5 adults and 2 children, and it was perfect.My grandchildren, ages 5 & 2,thought it was the best vacation they ever had.
