Bedrooms 5
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Farmhouse, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

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!

Slice of Old Cape Cod, 5BR, 4 Secluded Acres, Walk to Beach
average rating of 4.9 based on 10 reviews

Overall, we were very happy with this house and would happily rent it again.

  • 5 of 5

We had a multi-generational family event - 8 people from 4 years to 70 years. The house had plenty of space for us to not feel crowded. The children were very happy with the massive board game selection, the beach toys and the nearby bay (which is ideal for young children).

The "Slice of Old Cape Cod" description is spot on. It is an old house with creaky floors, low door frames, and well worn furniture. It is perfect for a nostalgic Cape Cod experience, which is what our family was seeking.

One thing to note (that is also listed in the description) is that the AC is only available in two of the five bedrooms. We were dealt a brutally hot week at the end of August, and the 3 small bedrooms on the top floor we were staying in got very hot. Sarah was very responsive and helped us come up with strategies to get it as cool as possible.

Speaking of Sarah, she was great. Sarah was extremely responsive. She knows every tiny detail/corner of the house and is a thorough communicator, so there was no confusion on the recycling process, how to turn on the A/C, etc. She worked with us to make extra sets of keys available - and was very kind when I called her with a quick question.

Overall, we were very happy with this house and would happily rent it again.

Owner's Response: Yes and I felt horrible knowing how hot it was for you!! Alas, there was a time on Cape Cod when a/c was unheard of and extremely rarely necessary. Needless to say, those days are gone.. That being said, we are definitely installing a/c in that upper portion of the house before next season!! And we'd be happy to have you back!

Lovely, historic home

  • 5 of 5

This was a charming historic property with many features of the original home retained. It was our first time in Chatham, which has much to offer. The neighborhood was quiet and charming. Sarah could not have been friendlier or more helpful to us while booking and during our stay. We all left relaxed and refreshed by the Cape Cod ambience.

A perfect stay in every way

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here last week for a multi-generational family get-together. It was absulutely perfect for us! We ranged in age from 55-4 months old, and there was something for everyone. The house was spacious but cozy. With 5 bedrooms there was room enough for everyone to have some privacy. The two living areas and office provided additional space for hanging out and work if necessary (which it was for some of us!). The yard was big and far from any traffic so it was great for the kids to run around in. The beach is an easy walk away, and it was perfect for the kids to splash around in. We also launched kayaks and a long board from there, so plenty of oppourtunities for everyone to enjoy the water. Town is just under two miles away, so you are close enough to enjoy the activities (baseball, shopping, restaurants) if you want to. We also enjoyed a seal watching trip and a drive out to Provincetown and the surrounding dunes. The house was extremely well equipped with kitchen supplies, games, puzzles, beach towels, and pretty much anything else you could want. Wifi was fast and dependable. Communication with the owner was exceptional-she responded quickly to every request. We recommend this property with no reservations and hope to return again soon!

Love this charming Cape Cod Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here in September and loved it! It is remote enough that it provides complete privacy, but close enough to town that you can be there in a few minutes by car or for a good morning walk. It is completely peaceful. We loved watching the many varieties of birds that flit around the yard. The house is charming and cozy and both takes you back in time and provides modern day conveniences. You can tell the home has been well loved over the years. While it was just the two of us, we can definitely see going back with friends or family as there is plenty of room for many more with five private bedrooms. While we did not swim, the beach is about a three minute walk and provides lovely views. We look forward to going back soon!

3 years in a row

  • 5 of 5

My family (husband + 2 kids) have rented this house three years in a row, and love it more each year. Its secluded and quiet, but easy to get to town. We walked down to the small beach at the end of the lane, or played in the large yard if we wanted to stay close to home -- or jumped in the car for a quick jaunt to another beach.

The house is extremely comfortable, with just the right amount of updating in bathrooms and the kitchen, but keeping the charm of the delightful house, living room and study intact. The wireless is great - we had some work to do in the evenings, and sat together in the study -- it was so nice we almost didn't mind working on vacation!

My kids love coming back to this house - they remember watching the birds and the rabbits that tend to appear in the afternoon, and also are the biggest fans of the outdoor shower.

This is truly the perfect Cape house, and the best part is you know you are on the Cape, not in a soulless house that could be dropped down anywhere.
