Chatham farmhouse description
As soon as you drive in the driveway and smell the salt air, you start to relax and feel the welcoming embrace of this historical North Chatham house. With five bedrooms and three bathrooms, there is plenty of room for the family to spread out and yet never feel disconnected. With the door and windows overlooking the salt marsh and on to the bay, the kitchen is often the central gathering space to plan the days activities, prepare the evening cocktails or make meals to take out on to the front patio.
Spend your days alternating between reading on the patio and walking to the beach for a swim and some time in the sun, and then back to the patio. It is so peaceful just to watch the birds in the large oak in front of the house and the activity out on the bay. Or rent a boat and go over to the outer beach - find clams on the sandbar or shore at low tide. There's nothing like bringing home fresh seafood for dinner! Or hop on to one of the seal watching boats and spend the day in close proximity to these amazing creatures. Miles of beaches to walk, birds to sight, and shells to gather in between dips in the cool water.
Of course there are plenty of activities in and around Chatham too. Town is five minutes by car or ten on a bike, where there are many shops to browse, and restaurants galore. See great plays at the Monomoy Theatre in the heart of Chatham, or the latest arrival at the brand new movie theatre. Make it a vacation to remember!

Classic Cape Cod Getaway!!
Classic Cape Cod Getaway!!
We were fortunate enough to host a large family gathering at Sarah's wonderful property in September. When we arrived the property was very clean and the yard well taken care of. The kitchen was well stocked with all the tools we needed to entertain. The home has been so well maintained that only the living room hardwood floorboards and hand forged nails indicate the real age of the home. The ocean views and breezes that flow through the kitchen are delightful and the back patio is great for afternoon cocktails in the sun. We look forward to making this an annual affair and would recommend other families looking for a true Cape Cod experience book this home.

My husband and I spent last Thanksgiving in this wonderful old Cape setting with some of our children and grandchildren - cooking good food, playing games in front of the fire, talking, walking the wintry beach. This lovely family holiday reminded me that I should also review an earlier time I spent at this property with my two sisters and our husbands. It was something of an experiment for us, adding our husbands to our annual "sister reunion," and this property proved perfect for the event. Three bedrooms with private baths that perfectly met our needs as well as appropriate "entertainment" for our variety of interests. One husband visited the fresh fish monger each day to select what he would cook for us that night; another enjoyed daily runs along the country roads that surround this place; and the third who loves the sea enjoyed spending time walking on the beach just below the house. The setting provided space for us to be quiet and alone (to read, nap, whatever) as well as common space to talk, play games, do projects. The setting is perfect for such a couples get-away. The house is, as advertised, charming but also one in which you can relax and put your feet up. I highly recommend it!

Loved this house
Loved this house
My family stayed for a week, and had a wonderful time -- the house is spacious, comfortable and charming, the patio and garden/yard are lovely, and my kids loved watching the birds and visiting rabbits. Its true to the title of the listing, a slice of old Cape Cod, and but what we experienced was "summer vacation" -- quiet lane, outdoor shower, patio -- but without sacrificing comfort. Last note, the pics don't do the home justice, in my opinion!
