Property description

Our Great Gatsby is a gracious estate set high above Nantucket Sound with southwesterly breezes blowing in from the salty air covering Old Cape Cod.

There are grassy lawns for games and family gatherings as well as cooking on the grill, or just sipping a cold drink on the 28 foot veranda overlooking the ocean and salt marshes.

We are the owners and operators of this fine property since 1977. Many thousands of guests have enjoyed our great Gatsby and even some got married here or stayed here the week prior to the wedding.

Many family reunions have been enjoyed where people from seven countries gathered here in Chatham on Cape Cod. we are open year round so that after the summer season friends or families can gather for long weekend or the holidays.

There are nine bedrooms sleeping nineteen in beds. There is a full dining room , butler's pantry, full kitchen, two full-size refrigerators and if you call you will get a tour in and out of the estate.

Please call Joan Forger for booking and help in planning your stay. We look forward to serving you.
