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.

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!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely, well-appointed with everything we needed. Plenty of room for the six of us. The outdoor patios were so comfortable to sit & relax after a full day of sightseeing. A convenient walk to beaches, gorgeous neighborhood! Highly recommend this cottage. The owner Pam was great to work with.

Immaculate, Comfortable, Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Our first priority when looking for a house rental is cleanliness; and this perfectly met our expectations! The photos online are beautiful; but the house has even more of a 'wow' factor when you walk thru the door! Well appointed. We enjoyed the private patio. Nice short walk to the beach, and easy drive to the main drag. Owners were very responsive with any communications from beginning to end of transaction. Highly recommend for your stay at 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!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that everything worked out so nicely and the house comfortably accommodated you and all your family needs! The house was left immaculate and we thank you for that and hope that you do think of us again for your future travels to Chatham!
