Chatham apartment description

Ship’s Light has looked down Cross Street to Chatham Village Center for more than 180 years. Built and occupied by some of Chatham’s most eminent residents since 1825, it was converted to four housekeeping apartments for summer visitors circa 1945. Lovingly restored by long-time current owners, this gracious antique home offers modern comfort and convenience with the character and charm of a bygone era.

The 'Lillian Spohn' apartment is on the 2nd floor and has 3 rooms with a flexible layout--perfect for a couple or a family of three vacationing on a budget. Accomodates 2 adults and 1 child easily; larger parties must receive permission from owners in advance, and may require additional payment. The large eat-in kitchen is light and airy with full-sized appliances and seating for 4. The bedroom has a comfortable double and twin bed, while the living room has a pull-out couch, for additional sleeping accommodations. The living room also has additional seating, cable TV. Wi-Fi is available throughout the house. There is an indoor half bath and a fully-enclosed outdoor shower for the exclusive use of Lillian Spohn renters. The shower is conveniently located at the base of the outside stairs leading to the apartment. Robes are provided. A small covered upstairs deck, side yard and gas grills are also available for renters; shared use of a washing machine and dryer is available in the garage.

Centrally located within a short walking distance of excellent Chatham dining, shopping, movies and band concerts, the house is three blocks from the town salt water beach on Oyster Pond, and one mile from Coast Guard Beach, a great stretch of Atlantic Ocean and dunes. Many individuals, couples and extended families consider Ship’s Light their vacation home. We invite you to join them in making your vacation something special.

The Lillian Spohn apartment at Ship’s Light is rented from Saturday to Saturday during the summer and shoulder seasons and by the week or weekend during the off-season. Other units with unique features are also available and the whole house can be rented as a 5-to-6 bedroom home for family gatherings.

              Owner info

              About the owner: The Coleman family has owned and loved Ship's Light since the mid-1970s. Like several owners before her, Lena Coleman lived at Ship’s Light year-round and rented its apartments to summer visitors. After she passed away, Bill, Roz and Allison Coleman undertook successive renovations and updates to the property, continuing to rent it during the summers to long-time friends and new guests. It has been a labor of love to work on this lovely house over the decades and it evokes in us strong memories of the generations that have come before us; in their honor, we have named each apartment. Lena, like others before her, looked forward to the summers when her long-time renters would return to visit, bringing with them stories of their winter months and great friendships built over many years; we are proud to continue this hospitable tradition in the heart of Chatham.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Located on a quiet street just off Main Street, Ship's Light is perfectly located and convenient to everything. You can walk downtown to shop in Chatham's great stores, enjoy a meal at a great restaurant, get ice cream, see a movie at the recently-restored Orpheum Theater and attend Friday night Band Concerts; it’s a short walk to the public library and Methodist, Episcopal and Congregational churches; other churches are also nearby. Chase Park and the grist mill are right around the corner; Oyster Pond (a nice swimming beach) is a short 1/4 mile stroll; the Atlantic Ocean is about 1 mile away. The Lillian Spohn apartment is a comfortable and affordable launching pad from which to enjoy all that Chatham and the Cape have to offer.
