Chatham -Multiple Family Friendly Walk to Ridgevale Beach and Bike Trail

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Lovely 4 BR, 2BA, walk to the beach, close to bike trail

After walking by the beautiful hydrangeas and entering through the front door you will realize this house is much more spacious than it looks from the outside. You enter the comfortable living room with the adjoining dining area and you look into the very spacious fire-placed family room with a 32 square foot picture window overlooking the large back yard bordered by trees. This room also has a table for dining with a pass through window from the kitchen.

The black and white eat in kitchen has an Electrolux wall oven, a brand new Bosch dishwasher, a Jenn Aire ceramic cook top, a Keurig coffee maker, granite counter tops and recessed lights.

There are two bedrooms on this level, the first has a queen size bed and the second has two twins.

There is a full bath with tub and shower.

All floors on this level are oak except for the kitchen and bath which are ceramic tile.

As you proceed downstairs to the walk out lower level the washer dryer will be on your left. To the right will be three twin beds which are a perfect set up for children. This room shares a closet with the other bedroom on this floor.

The fourth bedroom has a queen bed, a flat screen TV, a full bath (no tub) and its own private entrance if desired. Great for the in-laws, babysitter or a second couple.

The large back yard has lawn furniture, a picnic bench for 8, a gas grill and an enclosed outside shower. The yard is big enough for whiffle ball, croquet, or whatever else you may like to play and is not at all close to any roads.

Ridgevale Beach is a quick walk down the road (or you can drive, there is parking). This beach is beloved by families.

Please note the house has central air throughout for your added comfort.

The Chatham Bike Trail which connects to the Cape Cod Rail Trail is less than a mile away.

Marian's Pie Shop is also an easy walk and her cinnamon rolls are legendary. The center of downtown Chatham is about 3.5 miles and can be reached via the bike trail if so desired.

For availability and pricing, you can contact me directly at: or by calling

Ridgevale Beach is very special for the way its tidal stream forms a virtual moat around the beach proper. That stream creates a great stretch of sandy beach with no waves where younger children can enjoy the sand and water without the surf. Older kids can have a ball riding inflatables, going with the flow of the incoming and outgoing tide. Truly Mother Nature's Water Park.

Chatham Village is a short 5 to 10 minute drive where you'll find great shoppes, restaurants, and galleries. Enjoy the quaint movie house or band concerts on the green. And don't forget to hit one of the many ice cream parlors in town too!

Great house in a great location--can't be beat.

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this home every September for the past 14 years. Every year an enhancement has been made to the property. The proximity to Ridgevale Beach (10 minute walk) is a real plus. Further, about a half mile from Marian's Pie Shop and her famous cinnamon rolls and other great desserts. Just a tad further than that is the bike trail from which you can explore so much.

Chatham is centrally located halfway between Sagamore Bridge and Provincetown so it's easy to go to the National Seashore as well as Cape Cod Bay. But with Nantucket Sound at the end of the street, there is almost no need to go to the other beaches.

The house is always immaculate and well maintained, the backyard is large and the area is quiet. I highly recommend this for your visit to Chatham.

Lovely property in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful cottage in a great spot on Cape Cod. It is not really walking distance to any town (although there's a delicious pie shop a few minutes away). But it's a 10 minute walk to a beautiful beach! It's also right in the centre of the Cape, so nothing is too far. We explored Hyannis, Yarmouth, Harwich, Orleans, Provincetown and Chatham in the one week stay.

The cottage itself is a little dated but very comfortable spacious and clean. The third bedroom and second bathroom is in the basement but it looks out onto the very ample backyard. The eat-in kitchen is perfectly usable and there are plenty of pots and pans and dishes and glasses, etc. There are two living room areas (a sitting area and a TV area), as well as a dining room (which we did not use).

Sheets and towels are not included and have to be rented separately, so take that into account when considering the price. However there are ample beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc. This was a huge convenience as we threw them in the car and took them to the different beaches we explored.

The owner (Paul) was a total pleasure to deal with and even offered some recommendations about what to do. He stopped by at one point to return our security deposit personally.

We would completely recommend this place to anyone looking for a reasonable rental on Cape Cod. It's more rustic rather than shiny and new. But as long as you understand what you are getting you will have a great time.

Everthing As Advertised!

  • 5 of 5

There were no surprises during our recent stay....everything was just as we anticipated. The home was sparkling clean when we arrived and we found the main floor to be bright and spacious. The downstairs area is a little tighter but the space is ample. I would stay there again without question. We had a great time.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

Perfect home for our stay! Paul, the owner and his wife are very nice. The house is super cute, quiet and close to town. It was more than enough room for four of us. The bed was not very comfortable and the pillows need to be changed. Besides that, it was great. Would stay here again.

Great location to the beach and spacious house

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well maintained, very comfortable and room for everyone to be comfortable. The short walk to the beach was a pleasure. Grandsons playing ball in the backyard was fun. Would return

Beautiful on the inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

Property was wondeful! Plenty of space to stretch out with both a 2 yr old and a golden retriever. The beach is a close ten minute walk in a wondeful, safe neighborhood. All the ammenities you need for a great beach adventure!
