As soon as you drive in the driveway and smell the salt air, you start to relax and feel the welcoming embrace of this historical North Chatham house. With five bedrooms and three bathrooms, there is plenty of room for the family to spread out and yet never feel disconnected. With the door and windows overlooking the salt marsh and on to the bay, the kitchen is often the central gathering space to plan the days activities, prepare the evening cocktails or make meals to take out on to the front patio.
Spend your days alternating between reading on the patio and walking to the beach for a swim and some time in the sun, and then back to the patio. It is so peaceful just to watch the birds in the large oak in front of the house and the activity out on the bay. Or rent a boat and go over to the outer beach - find clams on the sandbar or shore at low tide. There's nothing like bringing home fresh seafood for dinner! Or hop on to one of the seal watching boats and spend the day in close proximity to these amazing creatures. Miles of beaches to walk, birds to sight, and shells to gather in between dips in the cool water.
Of course there are plenty of activities in and around Chatham too. Town is five minutes by car or ten on a bike, where there are many shops to browse, and restaurants galore. See great plays at the Monomoy Theatre in the heart of Chatham, or the latest arrival at the brand new movie theatre. Make it a vacation to remember!
