Great for teens and Mom
"I booked this house for three nights after a few days of college touring in Boston. It was perfect for the 5 teen boys (yes, 5) and me. It's close enough to drive or bike into town or to the beaches, and it has plenty of room. The boys loved the pool table in the basement, and we enjoyed grilling fresh caught bass on the grill. When the boys walked in they said, "Whoa, this is nice!" And they were right. Thanks for a great time. We hope to be back for a longer stay next year."

"This is a lovely rental, clean and well maintained, and only steps from the sound with beautiful sunsets, and a short walk to town. The house has everything you need and is perfect for large families: Beach towels, washer and dryer, dishwasher, dishes, pots and pans (if you want to cook -we ate out mostly), out door shower and three bathrooms, fenced in yard for kids, sand chairs in the shed, and games for the evening or a raining day. A walk to town for breakfast or coffee and a pastry is always pleasant, and a glass of wine on the deck is lovely. There are a number of good places to eat in or near Harwich Port ranging from seafood shacks to gourmet dining, and on a raining day try taking art lessons (adults and children) at the Pickett Fence in town. Chatham ( the next town up) is a good place to go shopping for nice gifts for an "outing," and there are some good places to eat there too, as well as seal watching. Stop by the Chamber of Commerce in Harwich Port for brochures on activities and sight seeing. The landlord is very helpful so don't hesitate to ask for suggestions and guidance."

"I've been home for over a week and I'm still feeling relaxed after my stay at Chatham retreat! We were 4 friends from grammar school looking for the perfect spot for a 30th reunion. We wanted something comfortable, inviting and within walking distance to the beach. We hit the trifecta with Chatham Retreat! We walked just a few minutes from the house to Heaven's Hill where we were treated to views I haven't seen since I was in Ireland-just breathtaking! From there we walked just a few more minutes to a beautiful, secluded beach. The perfect spot for us to "catch up". Downtown Chatham is so quaint and close and a perfect way to spend a day wandering in and out of shops and enjoying local fare. We have already booked our next reunion at Chatham Retreat and we cannot wait!!"

"This is a truly charming cottage with a very short walk to the beach. The house is outfitted with everything we needed, including games (for that one rainy morning), books (novels, children's, local detail), well outfitted kitchen, great deck and beautiful flowers. It's an idillic neighborhood, too."
