South Chatham cottage description

Welcome to RiverWatch! Have a fantastic trip and enjoy the beauty and serenity of Cape Cod. The house you are looking at was built in 1927, and has housed four generations of our family. It's a three bedroom house with two porches overlooking the Nantucket sound and the Atlantic Ocean. Expansive views of the ocean and the meadows. You can walk to the beach, or into the little town of South Chatham that has a fun family cafe and an upscale restaurant. A short drive north is the town of Chatham known for its band concerts on Friday nights, great seafood, shopping and art galleries. In the other direction is Harwich with its majestic boat harbors, fish shanties, and the go-karts.

The Cape is known for its long stretches of beaches. A favorite beach of ours is Hardings Beach, about a 10 minute drive. You can purchase a weekly or daily pass, and there is ample parking, life guards, toilets, and ice cream trucks. Park in the lot farthest from the entrance and take a nice walk to the light house in the distance at Stage Harbor Entrance. We also suggest that you have a sense of when high and low tide is, as the weather can frequently change with the tide. So what seems like a cloudy day can become sunny when the tide direction flips. There is a reason for the saying “If you don’t like the weather, just wait a minute…”. Google “cape cod tides” and look for Stage Harbor tide charts. There is a good chart found on
Another excellent beach is Ridgevale, which is a bit closer and has a nice sand bar with water on both sides for those looking for quieter place to swim or a place to let the little ones explore. Chatham Sailboat operates from Ridgevale for those looking to rent a sailboat or paddle board. Call 508-432-4339.
Sunsets: We love a beach in the town of Orleans called Skaket. It’s on the Bay side of the Cape, so it offers a different experience, including beautiful sunsets. When the tide rolls out at Skaket, the sand bars stretch on and on and on. It’s great for exploring and looking for crabs, and the beach is popular with children for that reason.
Chatham Light Beach: The Chatham Light and Beach offer remarkable views, but parking is difficult and the water is colder because of the direct access to the Atlantic Ocean. We suggest looking but not swimming.
Provincetown & Outer Beaches: For those looking to explore, a drive up route 6 offers a chance to see the outer beaches with its wild sand dunes, and cold rough waters.
Band Concert: A fun family tradition is the Chatham Band Concert that happens every Friday night at 8 pm at the Kate Gould Bandstand in the middle of town. The event is perfect for all ages, and they have dances for the kids. A trip to the Chatham Candy Manor before band concert makes the evening that much sweeter.

                              Year Purchased: 1927

                              About the owner: My wife live in New York City with our son. We were married in Chatham in September 2001.

                              Why the Owner Chose South Chatham:
                              The house has been in the family for four generations. Its a very special place.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              Gorgeous sunsets, views of a lighthouse in the distance, and you can see the light from Chatham lighthouse coming faintly over the water at night. Watch for the moon to rise up out of the Ocean, its one of the prettiest things I have seen.
