"If you are looking for a classy, cozy home at the end of a cul-de-sac with a great yard, a deck with beautiful views across a marsh, and located in a quiet neighborhood, this is the perfect choice. My siblings and I planned a small family reunion in Chatham for my father’s 75th birthday in May 2006, and we made a special trip down to Chatham (from the North Shore) to look at five homes. This house was head and heels above everything else we saw…and it was very competitively priced. My folks are typically very picky, especially when it comes to staying in a rental home. There were no disappointments from them, and that never happens! The house is bright and airy, exceedingly well-maintained, and amply and comfortably furnished with all the accoutrements you could ever need. We felt like we were staying in a close friend’s “home sweet home” while they went off to Europe, versus renting a characterless house from a faceless agent! We particularly liked the kitchen-dining room-lounge open floor plan which spans the entire length of the house. The deck overlooking the marsh around Oyster Pond was just perfect with Adirondack chairs and recliners; we had our breakfast out there as well as five-o’clock cocktails and appetizers! The upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect for my family and my brother’s family (four young kids aged 2-6 in all), while my folks enjoyed the oasis of their master bedroom and bath downstairs – away from all the bedlam! The two-bay garage was perfect for storing our beach stuff, bikes, etc. The kids rode their bikes and scooters around the cu-de-sac and in the neighborhood, and we played croquet on the lawn (when not watching the hawks flying over the marsh or rabbits traipsing across the lawn). The owner takes great pride in maintaining this house and in fastidiously prepping it for guests. She was available by phone and email at a moment’s notice to make sure we had what we needed. She gave us restaurant tips, and referred us to some of the special spots in the area (given that she grew up there). I recommend this home unconditionally, and should my family want to return to the Cape for another family reunion, we already know where we’ll stay. As her house (inevitably) becomes more popular and more frequently rented (I believe she has just recently begun to rent it), I hope the owner can keep up the standards I describe here. The combination of quality and value very favorably distinguishes the house from others in Chatham." - Michael T, Rockport, MA, 06/28/06 (inquire/book)
"What a great location and a classic home for a perfect Cape Cod family vacation! My favorite part of the vacation was sitting on the deck and enjoying the peace and tranquility of the wonderful view. The house itself is in top shape and is more than large enough to handle a big family. It is a perfect place to enjoy the best that Cape Cod has to offer!" - Anonymous, Wakefield, MA, 02/12/06 (inquire/book)
"What a wonderful place to spend time for rest and relaxation. We were fortunate to enjoy the amenities of the home, as a gift to my parents for their 50th Wedding anniversary. The surrounding areas were awesome and quite different from our midwest background. The highlight of the whole experience for me, was the welcome feeling we had from day one in dealing with the ownership. The home is beautiful and from the moment you walk in you will feel "at home". High marks from the Oklahoma brigade.. Enjoy your stay, make this the one you remember forever." - Paul, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, 10/11/05 (inquire/book)
"Thanks so much! The boys loved the house! We played at the great town playground and had Pizza at Carmine's. Can't wait until August. You were right, (Chatham) is as nice as Nantucket, but offers more and is easier to get to." - B. Hausman, MA, 06/06/05 (inquire/book)
