Owner info

Year Purchased: 1964

About the owner: The cottage, called "The Barnacle" was completely rebuilt a few years ago and is furnished and equipped for comfortable living. The beach is just a short distance away, the light house shines in the window at night, and in the spring and fall sometimes a deer comes by to see what I have planted for him to consume.

Why the Owner Chose Chatham:
Chatham is a town which has everything. Two miles up the road you can visit the Fish Pier and see the boats unload their daily catch. A mile down the beach you can find seals. There are two excellent theatres in town offering popular plays. The restaurants are excellent. If you want to visit Provincetown, that is only an hour's trip. You may be able to catch a fish from the shore, or there are charter boats which will take you out for bass and bluefish.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage is only a short distance to stores, restaurants, and places to visit, but is off the main road and is quiet and peaceful.
