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."

"The cozy cape cottage was the perfect place for our first vacation as a family with our 2 month old son and dog! We loved grilling out every night and the great outdoor space - yard and hammock. We took daily walks to the nearby bog / preserve and Bank Street beach. Harwich Port was a great home base for exploring towns all over the cape. We did whale watching out of Hyannis and managed to eat lobster every day of our trip! Nicole was so responsive and helpful before and during our visit. We did have to use the space heaters, but hear a new heating system is being installed in the house which is great. The only small issue we had was supplies mentioned in the book weren't at the house, eg dish soap, toiletries, charcoal and batteries were missing from the smoke and co2 alarms and they were taken down (safety was first for us, traveling with a newborn!) so we had to replace all of that. All in all the cottage provided a wonderful place for our week at the Cape and remembering this special time with our new son! We would love to come back!!"

"The few photos on the website do not do it justice. The house was extremely well equipped. The deck is large, great for relaxing and entertaining with a beautiful view. The location was perfect for whatever you want to do. My brother caught a fish while canoeing on the pond within 1 min of casting. We rented bikes from Barbs in Brewster and went on the bike path. Brax Landing has a nice outdoor deck for lunch/dinner and drinks. The Sand Dollar bar had live entertainment and was a lively fun bar. My friends and family all had a great time and would love to return next summer."

"The Carriage House was clean, comfortable and within walking distance to town. The owners were responsive and accommodating and I would definitely recommend the property to anyone looking for a nice, affordable stay in Chatham. Hopefully we can return soon."
