Restful and peaceful break at this lovely cottage near a pond and with easy access to Cape Cod.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was well stocked with everything you need. It is clean and comfortable. It's well layed out making the most of the space, decor is pretty and there is a lot of art work.

There is information about the area and suggestions for where to visit and eat which we found helpful.

We enjoyed sitting on the porch, the outdoor shower, and being able to swim and canoe in the pond.

Overall this was a great holiday and the cottage and location were a big part of this.

Wonderful scenic getaway spot close to everything in Chatham and beyond!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at this cottage over the summer. It was so close we could bike to most activities. We were minutes to town and the beach is just a little further. The cottage is spacious and homey in the best ways. Being so close to the pond was gorgeous. We had friendly neighbors across the little path and it was fun to play house there for a week! If only it were longer :) Wonderful time, can't say enough good things!

Quiet escape down a secluded lane, steps from lake

  • 5 of 5

Helene's cottage is the perfect size for the two of us. We really enjoyed sitting out on the deck, swimming and paddling around in the canoe on the lake and sitting by the fireplace on chillier evenings. We also loved the outdoor shower!

The cottage is located within walking distance to Chatham Fish and Lobster Company, great for take out, prepared foods and fresh fish as well as cool attractions like Chatham Light, Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge. It's also easy to get to Capetown for whale watching and nightlife.

Quaint & Relaxing Cape Cod Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I have been a renter of this property for the past fifteen years. I have found it to be clean with yearly updates e.g. a renovated kitchen and enhanced landscaping around the deck. It is situated near White's Pond which is a great spot for kayaking and canoeing. It is near local attractions e.g.Kate Gould Park for band concerts and Harding's Beach for water sports. This is a great place to vacation!

Very quiet atmosphere but close to everything you could need

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is located in a heavily wooded complex of similar cabins on a beautiful fresh water pond that is perfect for swimming. The cabin was very cozy with one bedroom, living area with a fireplace, nicely equipped kitchen, and a modern 3/4 bath. There is also a deck and parking. We found it walking distance to many restaurants, stores, and the downtown of Chatham which is about a 30 minute walk. The complex is also close to the nearby bicycle trail network on the Cape. We look forward to returning here in the future.
