Just a short drive to the most wonderful downtown on Cape Cod - Chatham, well-known as the best shopping and restaurants on the Cape or equally as lovely Harwich Port with many fabulous restaurants. It is also a very short drive to some wonderful fresh water lakes nearby. Downtown Chatham features their wonderful, family friendly Friday Night Band Concerts - a kids favorite. Enjoy the best-priced baseball anywhere when you watch the Chatham Anglers of the famous Cape Cod Baseball League. There is also a live theatre featuring the Drama Club from Ohio State University. Finally the bike path is close to the top of the street and you can either ride to downtown Chatham or head in the other direction towards Dennis. Truly the best and most reasonably priced vacation you can find in the Northeast.

Why Gerry Doyle chose Cape Cod

We have had some fantastic vacations but the Cape is where we escape to most for our family get-aways. We truly discovered Chatham a few years ago when we stumbled onto Ridgevale Beach, maybe the best kids beach anywhere. After a few more summers here on the fabulous Chatham beaches and very close to the waves and dunes of the Cape Cod National Seashore, we decided this was the place for our vacation home.

What makes this house unique

What makes our house unique is the closeness of the beach and the quiet of the neighborhood. There is not a safer road for the kids to ride their bikes on, nor a better location for quiet and for spotting local wildlife. We provide mountatin bikes for the parents to join their kids on the bike trail or riding to the beach. Plenty of beach gear, a great deck with a charcoal grille to cook up the fish you caught yourself or bought at the Chatham Fish pier or Chatham Fish and Lobster.

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a fantastic week at this wonderful house. As lovely as it is in pictures, the house is even more charming and homey in person. As a rental, it is very accommodating: attractive, organized, and well equipped (having on hand everything from wine glasses to a beach cart). It was extremely comfortable for this family with a small child. The owner was very accessible by email and text and, though this was a rental situation, I felt as if we were being hosted by a very gracious host. We rented a wagon and took our toddler on the 4/10-mile walk through beautiful, shady residential neighborhoods to Pleasant Street Beach, a small public beach that actually felt quite private. The house is only a six minute drive to the highly family friendly Ridgevale Beach, with tide pools and kayak and canoe rentals. It's a 13-minute drive into Chatham's gorgeous town center, and another 4 minutes to Chatham Lighthouse Beach. We just returned and can't wait to go back.

Charming Cape Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Chatham and this home exceeded our expectations. Served as the perfect base for our Cape adventures. Great size for our family, very clean & comfortable, and well appointed. Nice location in a quiet neighborhood just outside the town of Chatham, yet just a few minutes from downtown and numerous beaches. Owner Gerry was extremely attentive and helpful - thank you! We have VRBO'd over a dozen properties the last 10 years and he is the best owner I have experienced. Highly recommend catching a Chatham Anglers baseball game - town ballpark is 5 minutes from the house. Drinks on the porch @ Chatham Bars Inn - a must. We also enjoyed a day trip to Nantucket - ferry departs from Harwich Port, just a few minutes west of the house (look for Groupon Summer 2014). I believe that Chatham is the perfect spot for a Cape Cod vacation, and this home is exceptional.

fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

This was a really lovely home which was clean and well maintained. Our family of 5 found the home spacious, and very well suited to us. It is on a quiet street and located conveniently close to the beach. The central ac was great on the hot days.

The home was as advertised, all the descriptions in the ad were accurate.

The owner was wonderful and was very accommodating to our circumstances.

We would certainly rent this house again, and would highly recommend this property.

A quiet oasis in the woods

  • 5 of 5

This cottage, located in a quiet residential neighborhood, is intimate enough for a couple by using just the first floor but also large enough for an active family by using all three floors. It is extremely spacious, well maintained, tastefully decorated and more than adequately equipped. The large deck with plenty of comfortable chairs is the ideal place to relax. The owner was prompt and beyond helpful in responding to questions and concerns. Situated a few blocks off Main Street in South Chatham, it is a short drive to several beaches, to the Nantucket ferry from Harwich, and many excellent restaurants. We highly recommend this cottage.
