We had a wonderful time at the home in Chatham. The house was clean and very spacious. We really enjoyed the yard, the deck and the neighborhood was nice and quiet.

Perfect vacation home for a family of 7!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice week. Your home was the perfect resting spot as well as launch pad for our many adventures! It was so very comfortable and relaxing and we loved the layout and decor. I was impressed that my parents, my husband and I, and our three children all found the house an ideal setting for our vacation. The patio was so pleasant for morning coffee and family dinners. The basement was a great option for entertaining the kids and my husband and I loved the spacious master bedroom and comfortable living room. We will definitely recommend your home to friends and hope to return some day!

Thank you for a lovely vacation in Chatham!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Kennedy Family,

Thank you for a lovely vacation in your Chatham home. All of the rooms were beautifully and comfortably decorated, and included all of the practical amenities that made our stay stress-free. We loved the open-floor plan; there was plenty of room for all activities - from quiet reading, game playing, to outdoor games. The neighborhood was quiet and perfect for early morning or late afternoon walks. We also enjoyed the proximity to the bike trails. We were delighted to find the private nearby beach, and we enjoyed the shopping and restaurants of historic downtown Chatham. Mrs. Kennedy was easy to reach and responsive to our questions and needs. We look forward to our next stay with you.

Warm regards,

The Ingersoll Family
