"I booked the Windmill as a surprise present for my wife and took our two year old, having first spent a few days in Boston. I cannot fault the Windmill in terms of its location or position. It's a few minutes walk from Chatham high street where there's enough going on to make it feel that there's something going on and people about (we visited end of October so cant speak about other times). To save repeating other posts - the location is wonderful, on the edge of the water, lovely to look out on during the day and allowing lovely autumn sunsets. Chatham's position on the Cape means it's equidistant from all the key attractions, but has the relaxed pace that make you feel as if you are away.
Being a character property, the stairs are steep and wooden, which our daughter loved but caused us a bit of angst, but what else would you expect from a Windmill. It didnt detract from the stay, just to make others aware. The rest of the windmill is beautifully decorated with enough mod cons to suit 2 (or 2.5) adults.
We also had the pleasure of meeting Stan and Linda, the owners.
Thank you for making our stay at the Windmill such a memorable experience and adding to our holiday. We feel really lucky to have stayed there and hope to visit again. I dont hesitate for a second in recommending the Windmill or the other properties within the plot

"Storm Petrel may not be the most glamorous boat in the Marina but as the home of Captain Phil and Laura, every last practical detail has been thought of and the boat has everything you could possibly want for a perfect sailing holiday. Her steel hull keeps her cool and dry below deck and she is very stable in the water. More importantly, I would rather be on a boat having fun with Phil and Laura than aboard some fancy yacht bound by all manner of rules with a precious skipper reluctant to have interfering crew mates! Phil and Laura were the most easy going and lovely couple you could ever wish to meet and were generously accomodating to me and my three teenage kids. We were allowed to do much of the sailing and navigation and Phil was keen to teach us as much as he could during our time aboard. He always remained good natured even when I steered the boat only horseshoe shoal and when we laughed at his ecclectic CD collection! We loved the fact that we could sail to a new and exciting location every day and have time ashore. We also loved the swimming and fishing. The biggest surprise was the absolute luxury and sheer indulgence of having 5* food served up three times a day by Laura - in American speak I would say it was "awesome". The kids are still talking about it. For anyone reading this review, please accept my utter and unconditional endorsement that any time spent aboard Storm Petrel ( and more importantly in the company of Laura and Phil) will be the best time ever. I definately hope to be back again."

"We stayed at this property with our extended family. The house was very comfortable. It has lovely antiques and lots of old books. I enjoyed reading old children's story books that I read as a child to my granddaughter. It is shabby chic with older bathrooms and kitchen, feeling like a cape cod vacation that one experienced as a child. The property was very clean with new sheets and towels and an outside grill.
There are many areas to congregate or just to escape for alone time, such as a large screened in porch, good size living room, and outside area with chairs.
It's a short walk to the private beach so you can go back and forth to the house easily. This was great with children.
A short drive to the lovely town of Osterville with great shops and restaurants and very close to one of the best ice cream places on the cape--4 Seas.
Overall a great experience. I would go back."

"This is a great house for families to use. The location cannot be beat, near Chatham town center. Numerous restaurants are short driving or walking distance. The nearby fish market is amazing. Great beaches also very close by. Evan was extremely professional and efficient to deal with. We would definitely stay here again."
