About Pamela

This property has been in our family since 1982. It was completely renovated, expanded and landscaped in 2016. We have spent summers in Chatham with our 3 children and have enjoyed the area immensely as a place to create lasting memories with family and friends. We mainly use the cottage for our family during the summer months but offer it for rent when we are unable to make it to the Cape.

Amazing...5 Stars!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a Cape Cod vacation. You have the beach theme as soon as you enter the house. The house is spotless and has everything you could possibly need. We loved the openness of the house. We could be doing a puzzle, cooking dinner, watching football and reading a book all in the same room. It was perfect for keeping the family together when we were not going to the beach, Chatham center shopping, or taking a long walk. We will definitely return to this amazing house. You will not regret booking here.

Entirely Mesmerizing...

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time, the house is awesome……

I had been here with my family. It was a wonderful and memorable stay, My wife and I loved the perfectly planned beach theme of the house, so pleasing, every little thing in this house is according to the theme, one of the beautiful places I have ever been to. The house is furnished with everything we would have possibly needed. It is very spacious, well maintained, clean and comfortable. It has well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and nice selection of books to read and lot of board games for kids to play...Our kids just enjoyed themselves...

The house is very peaceful and It is a 5 minute walk to the beach and very close to other attractions in Chatham. It is a perfect place for family vacation......

"Living in a Magazine"

  • 5 of 5

When we walked through the door of this vacation home, it was as if we were transported into a magazine about "Dream Homes on the Cape". Everything was exactly as pictured and as stated! The peace and calmness surround you at the entry way. "Light and airy", "open and bright" ~ these words describe this home to a 'T'.

We came to the Cape for a wedding and stayed for a family vacation. At one point there were 4 generations at this house from an active 4 yr old to an active 80 yr old. Everyone enjoyed their time and privacy. The lower level, with its own family suite (TV, beds, shower, bathroom, game table and separate entrance), suited my son's young family well. While the main floor without any stairs, was perfect for my mom.

The owners were always prompt with their email replies and very accommodating, I highly recommend this Home and hope to return again!

Wonderful stay in Chatham

  • 5 of 5

With 6 family members visiting from Ireland for 15 days in August my husband and I decide it would be wonderful to spend a week of that time on Cape Cod. I was looking for a house that would sleep 9 people comfortable and actually felt like a beach house.

How lucky was I to find this one! It has a spacious floor plan and is clean, bright and decorated beautifully. The kitchen is stocked with all the appliances, pots and pans needed for a large family and it also has 3 bathrooms, a washer/dryer and a wonderful outdoor shower. We loved the large deck and the 5 minute walk to two beaches. It had everything we needed.

Pamela was a delight and her welcoming letter was incredibly helpful with tips on restaurants and fun things to do.

If you are looking for a beach house for a large family look no further. This one is perfect! You will not be disappointed.

Thanks again Pamela. We had an amazing vacation!

An Absolute Gem

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a few friends for a weekend, and let me say that this is single-handedly one of the most beautiful houses I've been to in Cape Cod. Let's start with the house:

It is very spacious, has a huge living room and an equally big porch with a BBQ to grill on and multiple chairs for lounging. The place is entirely clean and has a great charm the second you walk in. The lower floor is gigantic with multiple sofas, multiple beds, and a bathroom. Again, everything here is just full of space and comfort. TV's have cable and the WIFI works great. The beds, too, feel new and cozy. The parking lot can fit 2-3 cars, possibly 4, and everything about this place was convenient and inviting.

The house is literally a 5 minute walk from 2 different beaches. These were exactly the kind of beaches we expected from the Cape -- not too crowded, but still vibrant and full of life. Within a 10 minute drive you can get to the center of Chatham and walk around for food, coffee, unbelievable breakfasts, batting cages and other fun locales that'll suit any person's interests. I can't recommend it enough.

The outdoor shower is convenient for when you get back from the beach; the thermostat in the house very quickly warms/chills it down; if you sit on the couches, good luck getting back up because they're some of the softest and most comfortable couches I've experienced (trust me -- they're THAT good); the kitchen has all the appliances you need to prepare meals at all hours.

To summarize, this is a fantastic place and guarantee that it'll make your Cape trip one to remember.

Centrally located at the 'elbow' of the prestigious Cape Cod, South Chatham offers you access to both the Open ocean side as well as the Bay side of the Island. Within a walk to the beautiful beach where there is swimming, sunning, kayaking, sailing ,boating or clamming off the jetties. For the biking enthusiasts try biking from the house right onto the 28 mile Cape Cod bike trail that can take you all the way to the tip of Province town. For other activities, try whale-watching, para-sailing, kayaking, surfing, or deep sea fishing. You can always hitch a ride on a boat to see the seals on Monomoy Island or a ferry to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket there and back in one day. On a cloudy day there is a movie theater, bumper boats, trampolines, batting cages, or miniature golf. There are a couple of golf courses for various abilities. About a mile away are many tennis courts with easy access off the bike trail. For non ocean lovers there is a pond in Chatham for swimming, skim boarding and fishing. For those hikers you can explore and hike around Morris Island and bird watch as you go. At night time, other than catching a movie, there are many fine restaurants, bars,home-made ice cream shops, live theater or a Chatham A's baseball game. On Friday evening's in Chatham center there is the famous Band Concerts which is great for the whole family!
