Perfect summer cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cottage. The house was very clean, furniture was lovely and it is way roomier than it looks. Thanks for the great vacation!

This house was perfect for our family of 4 vacation in Chatham! It is beautiful and well maintained! It was super clean when we arrived and offers so many wonderful amenities (central A/C, washer & dryer, a grill and the kitchen has everything)! It is located in a quiet neighborhood, which is wonderful. We enjoyed dinners out on the deck. The owners, Gerry and Cindy, are great to work with and are super responsive to any questions we had. The house is a short drive to Ridgevale Beach (which is perfect for our young daughters) and close to downtown Chatham. We are looking forward to our return trip next summer!

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.

Gerry Doyle purchased this house in 2011

Why Gerry Doyle chose South Chatham

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.
