Property description

Spend your vacation in a part Cape Cod history...our 1848 Captain's House. While a beautiful antique, our home has all the modern conveniences you will be looking for on vacation including a newly renovated kitchen, renovated bathrooms, washer/dryer, refinished wood floors/ newly installed pine floors, cable TV, high speed internet, Fax machine, DVD/VCR players on TV's. Our home is a short walk to Marion's Pie Shop and the Cape Cod Rail trail. Chatham is centrally located at the 'elbow' of Cape Cod so you are not far from all the attractions on the Cape.

The house comfortably suits 8 people. The three bedrooms are arranged with two large bedrooms upstairs and the master bedroom downstairs with its adjoining master bath. The master bedroom has a queen bed, the upstairs front bedroom has a queen bed, and the back upstairs bedroom has two full beds plus a Cable TV/VCR (I call it the “kid’s room”). The washer/dryer is on the first floor. The kitchen has all the conveniences you should need-microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, cappuccino maker, toaster, blender, full oven/stove and an eat in kitchen (unless you want to eat out!). The yard is large with a hammock, chairs, barbecue grill, picnic table, gardens, and an ocean breeze. We are 7/10th a mile from Ridgevale beach, 3 miles from the center of Chatham, and an easy walk (about 2/10ths of a mile) to the Cape Cod Rail Trail where you may ride your bike for many, many miles all over Cape Cod. Or you can just ride less then 1 mile to the Chatham Airport deli and get a great breakfast and watch the airplanes take off and land (that is what we do!).


You have so many choices on the Cape...shopping, deep sea fishing, watching Cape Cod Baseball league games, going to the beaches, eating the best lobster fresh from the Chatham Fish Pier, golfing, biking, sailing, kayaking, mini golfing, whale watching, and sooo much more.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We live in Maryland on a small farm were we have raised sheep, chickens, horses, hogs, border collies, and children for about 30 years. We love farming since we enjoy being outdoors and appreciate nature. Our favorite vacation spot is the beach since it is so different from the farm, and there are great outdoor activities. On vacation we like to keep busy and the Cape gives us many activities to choose from.

Why the Owner Chose West Chatham, Chatham, MA, USA:
Our Captain's House has been in my family since I was young. Growing up, I enjoyed many summers searching for hermit crabs on Ridgevale beach and flying kites. When we had an opportunity, we purchased the house and now we are doing the same activities on the Cape with our children. It is like the Cape is timeless! We would love to share our home with your family... Come to Cape Cod and fly a kite! There are so many other simple pleasures for you to relive on a Cape Cod vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The top five activities we include on our Chatham vacations are: 1. Going to as many Cape Cod Baseball league games as possible. The best college baseball talent is on the Cape...many players make it to major league baseball. You can say you saw them before they were major league stars! 2. Walking or biking on the Cape Cod rail trail. Short trips to Short & Sweet ice cream shop or the Chatham Airport Deli. You can take a long trip on miles of paved trails through woods, fields, by cranberry bogs, freshwater ponds, and saltwater marshes. 3. Spending the day at Ridgevale Beach. There are lifeguards, boat rentals, gift shop, deli, and porta-potties. The beach is plenty big, the water is warmer in Nantucket Sound, and there is a river that runs to the sound with all sorts of interesting sea life. 4. Visiting the Chatham Fish Pier to watch the boats come in and unload their catch of the day. Often the seals are floating in the bay also waiting for the boats to come in to get a snack. 5. Walking to Marion's Pie Shop for a coffee and Danish, then relaxing in the yard on an Adirondack chair reading the paper.
