"The hosts are wonderful people to rent from. We loved being that close to the beach. We hope to come and stay again."

Truly A Home Away from Home with Large Heated Inground Pool!
"We are a large group of 3 families with young children. Maggie's cottage is truly a home away from home for us. The cottage was extremely well stocked: apart from the usual that you'd expect to see in a cottage rental, Maggie went out of her way to stock up condiments, plastic bags, paper towels & tissue papers, even shampoos and soaps, you name it! Everything you need in your own home, Maggie got it! The heated pool was a huge hit with the children, we even swam under the stars. One evening we lit up the camp fire in the fire pit, and roasted some marshmallows, our children still talk about that experience even today. The cottage does show some signs of wear, but Maggie’s personal touches throughout the house only add character to it.
The cottage is located in a convenient yet very quiet location: about 2 min away from a large Stop & Shop (grocery) store & the beer/liquor store. The historic Chatham is only 15 minutes away. We also saw the most amazing sunset at the Skaket beach, also just 10-12 min away and recommended by Maggie. During low tide our kids loved looking for clams, hermit crabs and horseshoe crabs there!
The only reason that I gave this cottage a 4 star is difficulty of payment: Maggie only accepts checks, and being a non-American traveler, I had to go to the bank and get a certified US Dollar bank draft to mail it to Maggie. When she returned my security deposit, it was yet another check to deposit: from USD back to CAD. It would be so much easier if Maggie could accept electronic payments. I was also a bit shocked to receive the rental agreement in an actual mail, in this age a PDF file sent as attachment would make much more sense. That being said, those are small annoyances that didn’t hinder our thorough enjoyment of Maggie’s beautiful cottage."

"Our small family just enjoyed this beautiful Chatham home for
the past 6 weeks. The property is very well kept with different flowers in bloom
almost weekly. Its interior is truly charming and is equipped with everything you
may need for your stay on Cape Cod. The location is perfect not far from the
center but far enough in to be serene. The beach is only a 10 minute short
scenic walk away. Joyce was both welcoming and accommodating. Anyone would be
lucky to enjoy this home away from home."

"A piece of heaven -- we were the only people on the Cape that week who made it to the beach only twice (and only because we felt we had to -- National Seashore and all) . We just didn't want to leave our backyard paradise (not to mention our bedroom suite with a view!) . Just looking at the pictures on this site makes my shoulders relax -- haven't found another spot which compares to this Eden."
