Welcome to captivatingly beautiful Chatham & 'Harbor View Lodge', the main estate house of a former private sailing retreat in prestigious 'not-to-be-missed' Chatham, now a beautiful, quality, year-round vacation house.

This spacious, charming, well-maintained, extra-large 19-room beach-house-style lodge is 'Family/Reunion Perfect'! The common areas are large (great room, dining room, family room, breakfast area, etc.), there are two full kitchens, and the bedrooms are numerous: ALL beds are suitable for adults or children...no bunk beds, no trundles, no undersized beds, no cots. This property sleeps 8 to 20 very comfortably. Private 1st floor suite with 2+ bedrooms, 2nd kitchen area, full bath, for general use or for additional privacy for families with young children, or grandparents. Central A/C throughout! High-speed wireless internet. All modern baths. Oriental rugs, rustic charm, beamed ceilings, wide pine floors, massive fireplace, quality furnishings...a crisp immaculate modern-classic... nothing dowdy... nothing dated... safe for young children (fully enclosed 10x30 harbor view deck, private off-road grounds). The house is very gracious, spacious, private, & fully-equipped... perfect for that special family reunion, multiple families, singles, couples, getaways, wedding (family) lodging, golf-outings, celebrations, executive. It is located in a wonderful safe private area for children, walks, biking, boating, swimming, clamming, surfcasting, fishing, kayaking... or just plain relaxing!

This charming yet sophisticated private beach house overlooks Oyster Harbor on Nantucket Sound, the south-facing side of the Atlantic Ocean. Child-safe beach pedestrian walkway, bike path, to magnificent Hardings Beach or to our quaint village hamlet with shops, restaurants, ice cream,etc.. It is a beautiful leisurely stroll to both! This path also connects to the Cape Cod National Seashore Rail Trail which covers the entire Cape! Since historic Chatham is ideally located at the 'elbow' of the Cape... midway between Falmouth and Provincetown... it is the perfect off-the-beaten-path 'hidden jewel' for endless exploration of 70 mile long Cape Cod!

Harding's Beach is 1-1/2 miles long and offers two spacious white sandy beaches with warm water swimming and terrific beach combing. National Geographic Traveler ranks Hardings as the safest and 'Top Cape Cod Beach For Families of All Ages'. It is ranked as one of the top 10 family beaches in the U.S.

Sun and relax on the deck and enjoy the picturesque harbor boating scene or stroll the many peaceful and scenic backroads of Chatham.

Deeded association path to water... Kayak from Oyster Harbor to town or isolated Nantucket Sound beaches... Moor your boat a stone's throw away... or rent... at one of two neighborhood marinas. Bring your bikes... or rent... safe biking to the beach or bike the Cape... this is bike path country! Fall in love with the view, the beach, the area, the ambiance.

Set down by the water and nestled in the towering pines, this 3-story property at first appears diminutive...it is anything but! With ocean harbor views, numerous private bedrooms, and many large common areas, this property is the largest vacation rental in the Hardings Beach area...and one of a select few that offers the best of all worlds...quality, location, togetherness AND privacy.

The beach is a key reason many, if not most, people come to the Cape. Hardings Beach has received national recognition due to: its expansive size (over a mile in length for those long beachwalks); its beautiful dunes; its white sandy beach; its breath-taking walk to Stage Harbor lighthouse (incomparable!); its South-facing orientation for the best and longest sunny days; its location on the warmer and calmer waters of the south-face of the Atlantic Ocean, known as Nantucket Sound, the best of Cape Cod; its lifeguards; its safety for children; its ample parking (no parking problems!); its REAL bathhouses; its relatively uncrowded summers (everything is busy on the Cape but Chatham, a quaint fishing village & resort, is off the beaten path); its swimming, recreational surfing, fishing or surfcasting, kayaking, windsurfing, kite-boarding, paddle-boarding, all possible regardless of the tides, with great non-threatening waves for all ages; most importantly, no dangerous riptides and no unexpected beach closures; and, of course, its wonderful location in Chatham itself, 'Cape Cod's Most Beautiful Walking Village', the 'Nantucket of Cape Cod', known for its vibrant Town Center with unique shops, restaurants, galleries, festivals, and famous band concerts!! Not as rocky & shallow as the Bay, not as cold & rough as the Atlantic... Hardings Beach on Nantucket Sound is 'just right'.

' Thank you so much. Your home is beautiful, views are fabulous and Chatham is wonderful. Wish we lived here! It's been wonderful and hopefully we'll rent from you again soon.'

'We had a wonderful time, the house was perfect, so well equipped with nice linens and towels and loads of kitchenware so it was great for our large group of 20. The furnishings and deck worked so well for a lovely beach group vacation. We couldn't think of anything we would change.'

'I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we all had at your house in Chatham last week. What a gorgeous spot! And the layout was perfect for our extended family. Ground-floor facilities for my mother, lots of rooms, two gathering places for large groups inside and the fabulous deck outside, a dining table big enough for all 15 of us, and room to set up croquet on the grass. Add to that perfect weather and the warm water at Hardings, and we were all pinching ourselves all week. Also thank you so much for your quick responses to our questions.'

'I just got back to town after a great time on Cape Cod. The house worked out great for us. We really enjoyed ourselves and the relaxing setting. Everything we needed was there including the lobster pot. Beds were comfortable, nice to have two kitchen spaces and refrigerators, and the dining room was spacious and comfortable (we ate at the house most evenings). Thanks for the nice bottle of wine - we opened it as soon as we arrived and enjoyed it immensely.'
