This charming yet sophisticated private beach house overlooks Oyster Harbor on Nantucket Sound, the south-facing side of the Atlantic Ocean.

This path also connects to the Cape Cod National Seashore Rail Trail which covers the entire Cape!

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'.
'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. First-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'.
'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 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'.
