About the property

Year-round, 4 Bedrooms + Detached Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8+)

My family and I live full time in Lexington, MA. We decided to purchase a vacation home in Chatham, MA because of the short access from Boston. Chatham has all the charm and beauty as Nantucket Island has which is where we married. It just so happens Chatham is so much easier to get to than Nantucket! This was our first purchase and because of the experience and the quality of life we have had vacationing in Chatham we have purchased an additional property and decided to rent out this property moving forward. We hope you enjoy your stay!

PLEASE WATCH OUR VIDEO OF EXTERIOR ON OUR LISTING!

About David & Evelyn Grainger

Evelyn and I (with our 3 kids) live full time in Lexington, MA. We decided to purchase a vacation home in Chatham, MA because of the short access from Boston. Chatham has all the charm and beauty as Nantucket Island has which is where we married. It just so happens Chatham is so much easier to get to than Nantucket! This was our first purchase and because of the experience and the quality of life we have had vacationing in in Chatham we have purchased an additional property and decided to rent out this property moving forward. We hope you enjoy your stay!

David & Evelyn Grainger purchased this house in 2008

Why David & Evelyn Grainger chose Cape Cod

Being in North Chatham and one mile north of the Chatham Bars Inn this location gives us great access to the Atlantic ocean side beaches, Pleasant Bay and Downtown without running into any major traffic. Having a great breakfast/lunch restaurant (Lazy Lobster), great coffee, pastry's, sandwiches and ice cream (Chatham Coffee) and beverages (Chatham Light Liquors) within a minute walking distant is a huge plus.

What makes this house unique

The quality of the house and the fact their is a huge fenced in backyard with a large deck and room for fun outdoor activities is great.. The firepit (portable) and all weather table top tennis is fantastic and lots of fun! Additional benefits A/C, flat screen /Direct TV and high speed Internet.

The unfinished loft above the garage has plenty of character and is a great spot of 10+ year olds to have a 'fun away' location to watch t.v. , play games, sleep and just get some time away from the adults!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi David,

It was a pleasure staying at this property. Our favorite part was enjoying the time in the backyard and the deck. It was a great space for our nephews to run around and enjoy themselves. Ping Pong table was a huge hit amongst us and when we hosted a bbq. In fact, after using your grill which is connected to the main gas line, we decided that we will do the same at home. Cooking on gas was definitely much more enjoyable then propane.



I will be leaving a glowing review on the website where we initially found your property (www.vrbo.com). There, I will include some additional details about our stay so that other potential guests can get a good idea of the property.



We have nothing but amazing memories from staying at your vacation home to spending time in the cape in general.



Thanks

Favorite Vacation House in Chatham

  • 5 of 5

When we walked through the door, we were so thrilled with how meticulously clean it was! Because this is our second summer renting Evelyn and Dave's lovely Chatham home, we felt right at home! The bedrooms are so comfortable and the loft over the garage was great for our 19 year old daughter and her few friends who spent a couple of nights with us. Although the weather wasn't as great as we would have liked, we still enjoyed a few good beach days down at Ridgevale Beach and some competitive Kan-Jam tournaments in the spacious backyard. Our 2 non shedding dogs love this house as much as we do; we've already booked next year's summer vacation. Thanks Evelyn and Dave!

Excellent place to stay with a family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT time in Chatham and this property was great for our big family. We loved the fenced in yard with children and a grand dog! The house was really clean and well appointed. The backyard was a great place to cookout and entertain in the evenings. My family loved the ping pong table! Excellent location. Close to town and the bike trail. We would definitely recommend this property and stay here again!

Great property!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at David and Evelyn's home. This really felt like a home away from home. Great property. Very clean, comfortable and a great yard. Awesome location to. Minutes to Chatham Bars Inn, Chatham fish market, Main St and Lazy Lobster and the Shark museum right across the street was great. David and Evelyn were great throughout the whole process as well. We've been renting on the Cape for years now and they were by far the most responsive and accommodating. Evelyn even offered to set us up with a babysitter during our stay. That was a first and much appreciated that we were dealing with someone who would go above and beyond like that. Would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Chatham.

Thoughtfully orchestrated getaway. If they don't have it, you don't need it...

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for a weekend wedding and were happy with our decision to stay here. We piled in 2 grandparents, 2 kids and 4 adults and had plenty of room and distractions to pass the time we weren't being wedding guests. Although not really walk-able to downtown, this location is self-sufficient enough to get there and forget the rest.

Great house, nice amenities and big back yard for a great week in Chatham

  • 4 of 5

The house didn't disappoint. The garage was great to have, keeping our bikes covered and for loading/unloading. Well- equipped kitchen and comfortable furnishings. The house was clean and well maintained, with nice touches regarding supplies such as toilet paper, paper towels and soaps, etc. The owners got back with us quickly with questions we had. I would recommend this property for a wonderful stay in Chatham. We did need to drive to our destinations, restaurants, grocery store, but everything was close enough and we were able to get to the bike trail easily for walking and biking. The back yard was handy for our dog to stretch her legs in the morning. And she had fun taking walks on the Colony Trail and a visit to Thompson's Field. Thanks for such a nice house to enjoy our Cape Cod vacation.
