About Carol Gordon

Hi Everyone, My husband and I ran this property as a bed and breakfast for 8 years..We decide to move to VA to be closer to our kids and grandkids. I am a personal trainer and my husband is a high school football coach and business teacher

Carol Gordon purchased this house in 1998

Why Carol Gordon chose South Chatham

We always wanted to live on Cape Cod but sometimes life gets in the way. We fully hope to use our home in retirement, possibly reopening it as a B&B

What makes this house unique

This is more than a rental to us it is our future retirement home!

Great for our family

  • 5 of 5

The family had the most wonderful time at your home! The bedrooms were perfect for our four family configuration. The suite over the living room for my sisters son, daughter in law and their three children; the downstairs bedroom for my daughter and son in law, the upstairs double for my son and daughter in law and their infant and the twin room for my sister and me.

We found the living room comfortable, the kitchen perfect for several cooks working together, the porch perfect for family meals and the hammock wonderful for young and old. My four year old granddaughters favorite part of the week was swinging on the hammock with her cousins. She will remember those rides long after she forgets the whales we saw, the swimming, the shell collecting and the rest that filled our week.

We feel very fortunate that we found you on VRBO, and we will highly recommend the Nantucket House

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. There's something to be said about relaxing on a summer day in the hammock! We hope you'll think of us again when you need some sand in your shoes!

A Nice Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our first visit to Cape Cod and our Family enjoyed our stay in this very nice home. There was room for all of us without feeling cramped. The kitchen is spacious, the BBQ grill is large and the areas for eating, drinking and playing with the Grandchildren were great. The children loved lounging in the hammock or just sitting around in the Adirondack Chairs. The adults loved sitting on the deck and just observing. The beaches were great, the restaurants were nice and the weather couldn't be beat. The outdoor shower after a beach day is a treat. We look forward to a return trip.

Perfect House for a family of 12!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous Cape Cod vacation and this home was absolutely perfect. The large kitchen and dining room provided the room we need to make meals together and eat at one table. The bedrooms were nice and had the perfect set-up for each of our families. Loved the 5 full bathroom and we never ran out of hot water. The dishwasher and washer & dryer were a plus. Played cards and snacked on the porch while the kids played in the yard. Close to all of our favorite beaches and attractions. Great house for a great time. Owners were amazing.

Excellent Family Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

Great location for family reunion. We have now stayed at this wonderful home two years in a row and planning to return next summer. With just a short walk to the beach and plenty of room for our family, three couples and children, it is the perfect location to get together and spend time catching up. It includes a nice fenced in yard for games and activities as well as a place for my sister's small dog to roam. The kitchen is fully stocked with plenty of dishes, pots and pans etc... for cooking and two restaurants in walking distance to grab a meal. Bike path nearby for those who like a little exercise while on vacation. Highly recommend this beautiful charming house to anyone ... families or just couples. Can't wait till next year!

What a great place and location. If you are looking for a great place to relax that is an easy walk to both downtown Chatham and the ocean this is it! The home has many rooms for sleeping options weather you are a small or large family or group. The yard is nice with a picnic table and hammock and the outside deck was our favorite gathering place. Very relaxing! I will definitely go back!!!

Wonderful Cape House

  • 5 of 5

I was lucky to stay in this wonderful house in October. The weather was beautiful and it was great to be able to walk down the street to the beach or into town to the shopping and restaurants. The town is quaint with a lot of fun shopping and excellent restaurants. The house itself is charming and comfortable for a large family or group. The updated kitchen was a plus and the large dining table makes for some memorable family meals. I would definitely recommend this property and would stay there again.
