Celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with our children from 3 states was our goal. Just getting everyone together was a feat!!!!
Trusting the description of this charming house in Chatham, we rented it. Spotlessly clean, 2 well equiped kitchens ; one more functional and one for entertaining in the new open room overlooking a fabulous water view. Its spacious, has two HD TVs, a perfect layout for seperate family members privacy and a great space for us all to be together. We loved having all the baths, sufficient for all of us; all three bedrooms on the second floor have their own private baths.
A really cozy place with New England elegance. Recently restored, not a detail was missed. The interior decor is fabulous. Can just imagine being there in the off season with the fire going in the fireplace overlooking the water. Did I mention the incredible views from our bedroom overlooking the water? In fact there are incredible views from almost every room. At night the moon over the water is spectacular. The yard is perfect for families with children and great for cockouts, we had such fun with our grandchildren. The location is wonderful; it is a short walk to the village of Chatham, shopping is tempting and dining is wonderful, and across the road to the life guared town beach. A two minute drive to the grocery and CVS. If you are thinking of going to Marthas Vineyard or Nantucket for the day, it is a short drive to the ferries. Our vacation was so special, this house is a charmer.
My husband and I had actually rented the Windmill cottage which is behind this Sea Captains house but due to some delays in construction and thanks to a very gracious and generous owner we were able to stay in this Sea Captains house. What an amazing place. It is peaceful overlooking Oyster Pond. The grounds are lovely with an outdoor garden area with a patio and grill; plus there's a screened in porch on the front so you can enjoy many hours of reading, napping or just contemplating life. The house is beautifully decorated; the kitchen is updated and extremely usable. We had a delightful time. And if we come back to the Cape we will definitely book this property again.
My husband and I rented the Sea Captains House in Chatham for twelve days, we had our children and their spouses, and grandchildren join us for a very memorable vacation. The Sea Captains House is in a great location, we were able to walk into town to shop and for dining. While in Chatham we also took in a few baseball games, the field was only two blocks away.
The house is charming and comfortable as well as being beautifully furnished. We enjoyed many meals at home and found the kitchens to be fully equipped with pots, dishes, utensils, etc. Another exceptional amenity was the WIFI.
We look forward to returning for another special visit.
Our extended family rented this home for this past Columbus Day weekend. This is the third house we have rented on Cape Cod and is by far the best.
Everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom and my daughter and her husband really liked the upstairs bedroom that connected with the twin bed room. Our 18 month old granddaughter slept in there so they were able to be near her without having to be in the same room. We stayed in the front bedroom and had a view of Oyster Pond.
The location is excellent. We were easily able to walk into town to shop and try the restaurants. Chatham is one of the prettiest villages on the Cape.
The house itself is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, well stocked and well maintained. Linda and Stan must really love this house to keep it so nice for their guests.
You couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay. We just loved our long weekend there.
Our family of twelve stayed in this home the last week of July, 2014. We had a fabulous week coming from Kansas, Washington, Colorado and Iowa. This house is in a great location for exploring the cape. It is also in a great location in Chatham, five minutes or less from the Main Street and across from Oyster Pond. I did not think the children, all twelve and older, would enjoy this pond, but they did. Of course, the ocean beaches were best. The old part of the house has been beautifully restored, and the back addition is in very good shape too. I have never rented a home with such a well stocked kitchen! In fact, there are two kitchens! There is also a fantastic gas grill on the patio. The only negative that we experienced was the sleeping situation. To sleep twelve, you have to unfold the couches every night and put them up in the morning as they are in the main living areas. I will admit that Linda told me this. It was okay, but not ideal. Despite that fact, this is a beautiful home n a perfect location, and I do not hesitate to recommend it for your stay on the cape.
We rented all 3 of the properties on this "compound" from Linda for a large family (16 people) reunion. Our children ages spanned from 5-20 years old. The properties were nothing less than perfect. We had plenty of space to spread out as well gather as a large family. We cooked meals together a few nights and other nights went out for dinner in downtown Chatham. The grocery store is literally 1 block away which made food shopping so easy. We all loved the beauty and uniqueness of each of the 3 homes on this property. Each home was beautifully (and fully) appointed and charming. Each home had laundry facilities and a kitchen. We all loved the quick (less than 5 minute) walk to downtown Chatham. Oyster Pond is literally across the street--a gorgeous view and great smaller beach for little ones. There was a large grassy area on the property for the kids to play, which we all enjoyed at the end/beginning of each day. Chatham beaches are a quick drive away. All in all, I/we can't recommend Linda's properties enough for either a family vacation. Outstanding!!!!
Great house for large family, family reunions. Includes 2 kitchens and 2 sitting rooms which were welcome during large gatherings. Close to beach and town. Suited our needs perfectly. The house is in great shape.
Our Sea Captains house is located right on Oyster Pond with beautiful water views from almost every room. We are located in a very desirable part of Chatham, on the water and a very quick walk to everything. The life guarded town beach is within sight and great for children and even older children who love to swim, there are loating platforms for diving and jumping. The village of Chatham is just over the crest; only a two minute walk to town with great shopping and dining. The new Chatham market is just down the street right next door to a brand new CVS. Our home is located in an area of 2mil plus homes and if you are lucky you might spot Harry Conick Jr., he has a lovely home right around the corner from us. He loves to fish on Oyster Pond. Walking around the pond or walking into town or even lighthouse beach is my favorite activty the views are breathtaking no matter where you look. Enjoy the plaesure of staying in our home where the entegrity of it's historical significance has been maintained while it has been updated to include all the conviences of todays living.
