Chatham cottage description

From this cottage you can walk down a private path to a private beach just south of Chatham Light. From there you can walk down South Beach to see the seals which gather there.
When you dine in the evening in the cottage you will watch Chatham Light shining in the window.
A mile walk down Main Street you will find excellent restaurants, gift shops, art galleries, and, if you like fine chocolate, Chatham Candy Manor.
If you wish to email your friends, the cottage is equipped with a Macintosh computer with broadband connection and a printer.
There is a gas grille and dining table on the patio.
There is no charge for telephone service.
The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher and microwave.
The cottage is provided with everything you will need for comfort. Bring your own linens or we can supply them for a modest additional charge.

Keywords: This cottage is comfortable for two to four people, close to the beach and an easy walk to town

              The beach is 600 feet away down a private path, and after a short walk down the beach you will find a large number of seals. A short walk from the cottage there is a marina which offers seal tours by boat - this is fun for kids.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1964

              About the owner: I bought my house (next door to the cottage) in 1964, when it was 160 years old (I am not 160 years old, however.) The cottage, called "The Barnacle" was completely rebuilt a few years ago and is furnished and equipped as I would want it if I lived in it. I love the area, because 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.
