A Magical Chatham Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second week-long stay at Seven Bridges and everyone in our family had a great time and is eager to return again next year. The house is large and spacious, with many nooks and spaces to explore and to retreat to, including a door disguised as a bookcase! The kitchen is very well appointed and was our focal gathering spot each night as we prepared dinner and then moved to the patio outside to enjoy our meals. The cool basement was a favorite retreat destination for playing pool, darts or watching a movie. However, the house is only a part of the attraction at Seven Bridges -- the property is spectacular! The home sits on a 400 acre property, including a working farm with cattle, pigs, chickens and horses. The kids were able to gather eggs from the chicken coop each day for breakfast and Dave, the farm manager was always very available to teach us about farm life or to help us out at the house with anything at all. We took walks over the property, on the trails and on the quiet country roads surrounding the property each day. Everyone in our group (kids to grandparents) thoroughly enjoyed our summer getaway at beautiful Seven Bridges.

Amazing Farm House

  • 5 of 5

We could not have loved our stay here any more. The home perfectly combines the charm of an 18th century farmhouse and modern amenities. More importantly, the house had more than enough space to not only accommodate our large group (10 kids, 8 adults), but also to ensure that each family had privacy for downtime and to tend to babies.

The pool, farm, game room and yard provided kept everyone in our group entertained and happy. Overall a fantastic place to stay.

A perfect spot for a celebratory family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I were looking for a large, comfortable home for a family reunion/post wedding celebration. Seven Bridges Farm was the perfect spot. The home itself is large and comfortable with beautiful east coast charm and just enough glamour to make it special. We split most of our time between the large back patio and the pool. Both offer stunning views of the grounds. We had 9 people staying at the house and everyone had privacy. There are plenty of bathrooms - most folks had their own. All of the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked and the basement game room was a favorite place to hang out. The house has AC units and forced air which kept it cool despite the July heat and humidity. Brian, the superstar who manages the home, was available 24/7 and took great care of my family. He also runs the Old Chatham Country Store, a restaurant and store down the road which offers delicious sit down meals in addition to take away items and much needed basics like milk, bread, beers and wine. He went out of his way to provide fantastic food to our road weary crew. Another superstar, Dave, manages the working farm across the road. He kindly took folks on tours of the property and put out hay and feed so we could feed the horses, pigs, chickens and cows. The kids loved that. I especially enjoyed running for miles along the trails and back roads on the property. I highly recommend Seven Bridges Farm for a group get away. It was hands down the best VRBO experience we've ever and we will definitely be back.

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible place, incredible stay. Picturesque home on beautiful, sprawling property. Our visit could not have been better. Large spacious rooms full of character and country charm. Multiple fireplaces. Fully equipt chefs kitchen, fire pit & brick barbecue for grilling outside. Really enjoyed the salt water pool during the day.. and at night under the stars! Also Dave is the best! He had fresh eggs from the chickens and beautiful squash from the garden waiting in the kitchen for us upon arrival. A perfect stay.

Fabulous place

  • 5 of 5

We rented this spacious and well appointed house in Old Chatham for a family reunion. But what we found was BETTER than the description. it was homey for the kids, elegant for the adults, large enough for privacy yet designed for communal gatherings. The heated pool allowed the children to swim from morning to evening; the play room allowed them to learn new games. The kitchen is well designed for a large group, too. We couldn't ask for anything more. Oh, and Brian's salsa and chips are a miracle on the taste bud!!
