North Chatham cottage description

'The Bluff House' is a very private turn of the century informal cottage located down a private country lane directly on the water overlooking Pleasant Bay, Nauset Beach, and the Ocean beyond. An ideal family retreat with ping pong, croquet, pier, swimming, boat mooring, and nearby golf. All bedrooms have water views and the large patio and yard offer unending summer fun. A great house for informal entertaining or escaping the real world. A home where time stands still and days float by. A short drive to town, restaurants, golf, theaters, and shopping with all the privacy of a bygone era. Fishing off the pier or chartering a boat for your stay allows the descriminating few a chance to relax only 1.75 hours from Boston.



Who best fits the house: This is a charming house for those people who want to be near it all yet able to step back to a quieter family oriented environment. This is a great beach house with the comfort that can only be found in old estate area's where property has not changed hands in 4 generations. Everything is well preserved, updated, and clean. But most importantly family's can relax and enjoy the best location on Cape Cod. The dock goes with the house and is shared by 2 family members who have houses nearby. There is a boathouse on the beach that is not included in the rental price at this time. If you are looking for a very comforatble house with unbeatable views and a location that cannot be duplicated you will not be disappointed. Walk down the path/stairs to the beach for easy access.

air conditioning: I am in the business of providing AC and have never needed it at the Bluff House. The AC that exists is a window unit in the master bedroom. There are ample fans, cross ventilation, and the evening ocean air to keep the house cool and comfortable.

games: there is croquet, ping pong that is set up in the cleaned out garage, numerous board games, puzzles, and a small library.

                  Down a quiet Country Lane with no traffic or worries lies a house with access to fine dining, museums, nature walks, movies, golf, tennis, and endless beaches. With swimming and fishing off the pier and a mooring for a tenant supplied boat, this home is highly recommended for those people seeking a simple informal escape. This area of Chatham represents Old Cape Cod as houses have not changed hands in generations. With the warmer bay water swimming off the pier or at the beach is warmer than other area's of the outer Cape. The bass fishing is outstanding and the privacy is almost impossible to duplicate within the Chatham area. Golf and the town are within 3 miles. With everything that Nantucket has for a fraction of the cost.

                  Other Activities: From fine dining to quiet beach adventures. Seal tours, charter boat fishing, day trips to Nantucket, and numerous secluded beach tours all within 5 minutes drive. Please call the owner with any specific questions as there are too many options to list.

                  Golf: There are numerous Golf courses throughout the Cape within a 3 to 30 minute drive. the local Muni is an ideal spot for bringing kids of all ages to pick up the sport or get that quick round in before going to the beach or out to dinner. There are no tee times so just show up with the kids and enjoy. For the more serious golfer, the Captains, Cranberry Valley, Cape Cod National (semi private) and Highlands are some of the great venues to enjoy.
