Property description

You will love Rhododendron House -- a recently updated 2 bedroom vacation house. This private hilltop retreat is located 3/10 miles from one of Chatham's most popular family beaches, Hardings Beach. The short walk saves you $15 a day in beach parking fees! Newly painted inside and out, the house comes fully equipped with beach toys/chairs/cooler, grill, bikes, outdoor shower and washer/dryer; baby supplies available upon request. Main Street in Chatham is less than 2 miles from the house and has outstanding shops, restaurants, art galleries, parks, band concerts, baseball games and a library that has summer programs for the whole family. Come enjoy a comfortable stay in Chatham and fall in love with our wonderful town on the elbow of the Cape.

Nearby Attractions:: Bike and walk on the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Cape League baseball is in full swing from mid June to the first week in August. Visit the playground, wonderful art galleries, bistros, antique shops, nautical stops and candy shops. Watch the Chatham fishermen unload their boats at the local fish pier. Visit the historical Chatham Lighthouse. Fresh water and salt water fishing along the shoreline. There are thousands of seals that are easily spotted along the ocean front, especially from the Chatham Fish Pier. Seal tours are available. Great White Sharks are around off the Chatham Coast as well.

Restaurants:: There are a variety of restaurant choices available in Chatham, as well as in the neighboring towns of Harwich, Brewster and Orleans. The best seafood on the Cape is available right in downtown Chatham.....

Fishing:: Some of the finest fishing can be found on Cape Cod. We can provide you with a number of fishing spots and local fishing Charters. Chatham is THE destination for World Class Tuna and Striped Bass Fishing. The cool waters off the Cape Cod elbow make this a prime destination for multiple gamefish.
