Property description

Come enjoy easy, breezy Highwood Cottage, tucked away off N. Chatham's prettiest street. Relax in the quiet calm and fresh air after a busy day of shopping downtown, away from the noise and crowds (but not too far). Sit on your beach and read while the boats glide by or play games with the kids on the expansive front lawn. This private setting is in a gorgeous estate neighborhood that is surrounded by water, perfect for those early summer morning and evening walks, with beautiful vistas everywhere. Your private beach is just a short stroll away, shared with 2 families. Bring your boat, as there's a launch area next to the beach, too! Visa / MC accepted. If paying by check, just contact me in advance for easy instructions, thanks. This is an owner-managed home. (We do not use real estate agents, so personal attention to make your vacation as enjoyable as possible is our top priority! ) 3 bedrooms include a queen master w/bath, walk-in closet and TV, 2 twin bedrooms, all sleeping 6 plus a twin pullout makes 7. Lovely living room, dining room seats 10-12, casual family room/kitchen and a screened porch to catch cool southerly breezes perfect for al fresco dining. Amenities include central air, wireless internet, great outdoor shower, books, games, and a wagon to transport little ones to the beach. Across the water within kayak's reach is one of the country's best beaches. Patio in private back yard w/ gas grill, large lawn in front for games, croquet included. Downtown is 1.8 miles past the prettiest houses in Chatham. Luxury sheets, plush towels, laundry detergent, paper goods, soaps included. No cleaning fee. Well behaved pets welcomed. We look forward to meeting you!

NEIGHBORHOOD & DOWNTOWN: 'HIGHWOOD' is located in a very exclusive neighborhood where other houses rent for twice the price w/o beach rights. It is modeled after the classic NE design of the 'Half Cape', and is well off the street for privacy and safety for children. It has very comfortable furnishings and mattresses. The backyard has a tall privacy hedge, and a large dining table, garden area and gas grill. Linger over dinner under the umbrella next to the flowers or eat out on the screened porch with candlelight to welcome the evening with family and friends. All necessities are included, such as linens, towels, laundry detergent, t.p., all kitchen gadgets,small appliances, spices, etc.. An outdoor hot and cold shower makes coming in from the beach mess-free and fun!

This section of North Chatham is the most exclusive, beautiful and quietest available, unlike the noisier, high traffic in-town area, which is still easily accessible by bike, being less than 2 miles away.

THE BEACH: Out of the driveway to the left past a handful of beautiful homes and an estate is the private beach at the end of Cotchpinicut. A wagon is provided to make transporting little ones and lunch easy. It has a new, large and sandy shallow area formed over the winter which is wonderful for children. Bring your kayak, or launch your small motor boat at the landing. The outer beach is right across the water, a quick 5 minute boat ride to the best beach in the Northeast. Great surfcasting on the ocean side, so don't forget your fishing poles!

Car: Recommended

Chatham offers the ultimate mix of a beautiful locale with so much to do. Book a day for saltwater fly fishing with a local captain, and eat your catch the same night. Bring a new read to the beach for the afternoon, and go out to a local playhouse for the best in summer theater in the evening. Go out for an after- theater dinner at one of the many fine restaurants in town or elsewhere on the Cape. There's an art festival on Cape Cod nearly every weekend, and we have one of the oldest existing drive-in movie theaters in the country. There are many family-friendly activities also, from pirate ship cruises to quality children's theater. Public tennis courts are a bike-ride away, as is great shopping. In essence, we've got it all for your perfect vacation.

 

Owner info

About the owner: My only concern is for the comfort of my guests. Rest assured you will have a very pleasant stay at Highwood Cottage. I started and ran a very popular shop in downtown Chatham for years called The Regatta Shop, so I have served thousands of customers on an individual basis with only the highest service in mind, always with a smile. We hope you will choose Highwood and make it your favorite summer home for years to come as others have done. Welcome!

Why the Owner Chose North Chatham, Chatham, MA, USA:
Location, location, location. Downtown, or the village, can be noisy. It is car exhaust-filled, and crowded everywhere. But up here, you have privacy, relaxation, fresh air, gorgeous neighborhoods and no noise or lights to keep you up at night if you don't want to be, but downtown is still easily accessible. Come visit soon! Make Highwood Cottage your own for a week, a month, as long as you want.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property is on a very special street, as anyone in Chatham knows. That's why the properties here remain in families for generations. There just isn't a better area.
