The Cape at its Best!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a long weekend in May 2017. The property was perfect for our family. A short walk from the house we were able to rent paddle boards and kayaks. We enjoyed starting the day with a paddle on Oyster River followed by coffee and breakfast on the front porch. The view overlooking the water along with the home's historic feel provided the perfect setting for our Cape Cod vacation. My kids enjoyed playing bocce and croquet in the beautiful yard. Inside, the house was functional and comfortable for all of us. Its central location provided easy access to downtown Chatham and Harwichport at night. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning!

Breathtaking views, quiet and secluded location, close to downtown Chatham

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about our stay at this wonderful house. Tucked at the end of a quiet street with fabulous views of oyster river and nantucket sound, the location cannot be beat. We enjoyed coffee on the porch while watching the comings and goings at the dock at the end of the street. The house is well equipped and very comfortable for a large family or two families with children. Close to one of Chatham's best beaches, and just a short drive to downtown and great restaurants- what a gem! Highly recommended, we'll be back!

Perfect Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Barn Hill House could not have been better for our trip. The location was perfect for traveling up and down the Cape to our destinations -- easy access and very convenient. The house had everything we needed as far as amenities go -- it was very spacious for 6 adults and 4 kids. The scenery was incredible; immaculate garden and the huge yard absolutely made our trip. Close access to the beach, Chatham's amazing restaurants and several area beaches. Could go on and on, but to sum it up, an absolutely PERFECT place to visit. Coming to the Barn Hill House has become our yearly tradition!!!

Amazing house and location!

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to the Cape for many years and haven't found a better house and property to vacation at. The house has plenty of space and provides amazing views of oyster river and monomoy in the distance. The house sit just across the street from Oyster river, which provides a great place to launch a boat or paddleboards and it is just a short drive into downtown Chatham. We had an amazing time and we can't wait to vacation there again.

The best of the cape.

  • 5 of 5

The "Barnhill House," as my family most affectionately refers to it, is the epitome of Chatham coastal living. We've been coming down for long weekends in May for the last couple years and we couldn't be happier. Having the ability to launch the boat and be on the water in five minutes while leaving the trailer in the driveway is invaluable. If we're not on the water we're playing golf; the Chatham public course is a well maintained challenging 9 and Cranberry Vally is never full. The views are second to none, the location couldn't be more convenient, and if you like Chatham a little on the quieter side, you'll love this house in May.

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this property in June with family friends. It was our first time to Chatham, and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. The quant downtown, activities such as Cape League Baseball, Friday night band concerts and easy access to a variety of beaches were ideal for both kids and adults. The property itself was perfect for our needs. Within a short walk from the house, we were able to rent paddleboards and kayaks as well as find a slip to keep our 24 foot boat on for the week (plenty of great fishing to be had with access to Nantucket Sound and the Atlantic Ocean). The house itself is incredibly charming, still retaining its historic character while being comfortable (for two families with kids) and functional. The kids spent endless hours playing yard games and the adults loved the sweeping views from the porch and front lawn. As an added bonus, my wife (who is a big American Idol fan) just learned that Harry Connick Jr. has a house about a mile down the river in Oyster pond. All in all, a great spot and a great vacation. Our families hope to make this a yearly event.
