Launch your boat/kayak for a quick trip across the water to one of the country's finest beaches for a picnic or some great surf casting. Downtown is 1.8 miles past the prettiest houses in town.

This section of North Chatham is the most exclusive, beautiful and quietest available, unlike the noisier, high traffic in-town area, which is still easily accessible by bike, being less than 2 miles away.

THE BEACH: Out of the driveway to the left past a handful of beautiful homes and an estate is the private beach at the end of Cotchpinicut. A wagon is provided to make transporting little ones and lunch easy. It has a new, large and sandy shallow area formed over the winter which is wonderful for children. Bring your kayak, or launch your small motor boat at the landing. The outer beach is right across the water, a quick 5 minute boat ride to the best beach in the Northeast. Great surfcasting on the ocean side, so don't forget your fishing poles!

                  Chatham offers the ultimate mix of a beautiful locale with so much to do. Book a day for saltwater fly fishing with a local captain, and eat your catch the same night. Bring a new read to the beach for the afternoon, and go out to a local playhouse for the best in summer theater in the evening. Go out for an after- theater dinner at one of the many fine restaurants in town or elsewhere on the Cape. There's an art festival on Cape Cod nearly every weekend, and we have one of the oldest existing drive-in movie theaters in the country. There are many family-friendly activities also, from pirate ship cruises to quality children's theater. Public tennis courts are a bike-ride away, as is great shopping. In essence, we've got it all for your perfect vacation.


                  Owner info

                  Why the Owner Chose North Chatham:
                  Location, location, location. Downtown, or the village, can be noisy. It is car exhaust-filled, and crowded everywhere. But up here, you have privacy, relaxation, fresh air, gorgeous neighborhoods and no noise or lights to keep you up at night if you don't want to be, but downtown is still easily accessible. Come visit soon! Make Highwood Cottage your own for a week, a month, as long as you want.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The property is on a very special street, as anyone in Chatham knows. That's why the properties here remain in families for generations. There just isn't a better area.
