Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Ship’s Light has looked down Cross Street to Chatham Village Center for more than 180 years. Built and occupied by some of Chatham’s most eminent residents since 1825, it was converted to four housekeeping apartments for summer visitors circa 1945. Lovingly restored by long-time current owners, this gracious antique home offers modern comfort and convenience with the character and charm of a bygone era.

Named for the original owner and builder of Ship's Light, the Prince Harding apartment is a one-room studio, with a kitchenette, bath with shower and lovely front porch. Airy and light, this apartment has been updated in 2017. The main room includes a queen-sized, four-poster bed, dining table & chairs, comfortable seating area and flat screen TV with cable. Wireless internet service is available throughout the house. Perfect for a couple, the kitchenette has an apartment-sized range, microwave and refrigerator with freezer. Enjoy your morning coffee on the private front porch with your loved one or watch the sunset while sipping a glass of wine. The charm of the apartment is further enhanced by the warm glow of beautifully refinished, wide pine, antique floors.

Centrally located within a short walking distance of excellent Chatham dining, shopping, movies and band concerts, the house is three blocks from the town salt water beach on Oyster Pond, and one mile from Coast Guard Beach, a great stretch of Atlantic Ocean and dunes. Many individuals, couples and extended families consider Ship’s Light their vacation home. We invite you to join them in making your vacation something special.

The Prince Harding apartment at Ship’s Light is rented for minimum 3 night stays during the summer and for minimum two night stays during the shoulder and off-seasons. Other units with unique features are also available and the whole house can be rented as a 5-to-6 bedroom home for family gatherings.

About Allison Coleman

The Coleman family has owned and loved Ship's Light since the mid-1970s. Like several owners before her, Lena Coleman lived at Ship’s Light year-round and rented its apartments to summer visitors. After she passed away, Bill, Roz and Allison Coleman undertook successive renovations and updates to the property, continuing to rent it during the summers to long-time friends and new guests. It has been a labor of love to work on this lovely house over the decades and it evokes in us strong memories of the generations that have come before us; in their honor, we have named each apartment. Lena, like others before her, looked forward to the summers when her long-time renters would return to visit, bringing with them stories of their winter months and great friendships built over many years; we are proud to continue this hospitable tradition in the heart of Chatham.

What makes this apartment unique

Located on a quiet street just off Main Street, Ship's Light is perfectly located and convenient to everything. You can walk downtown to shop in Chatham's great stores, enjoy a meal at a great restaurant, get ice cream, see a movie at the recently-restored Orpheum Theater and attend Friday night Band Concerts; it's a short walk to the public library and Methodist, Episcopal and Congregational churches; other churches also nearby. Chase Park and the grist mill are right around the corner; Oyster Pond (a nice swimming beach) is a short 1/4 mile stroll; the Atlantic Ocean is about 1 mile away. Visitors love to sit and read on the porches and decks overlooking Cross Street and Shattuck Place; from these private perches you can put your feet up and watch the world go by.

Cute and quaint

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed for a short weekend getaway. We parked the car the day we got there and didn't use the car the entire weekend. Walking distance to the cutest down town and beaches. Comfortable, with all the things you would need to cook and store your own food if staying longer. We can't wait to come back next year!

Really Cute House Close to Main Street

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the studio of the unit. It is super cute and has everything you need. The bed and pillows were really comfortable. It is located really close to Chatham Main street, we were able to easily walk to eat and shop. We were even able to walk to the ocean, it took maybe 15 minutes. It is also really centrally located in Cape Cod. We were able to drive from tip to tip very easily and be back at the unit!

Everything was great and we would stay there again!!

Great weekend at the Cape

  • 5 of 5

We stayed just for the weekend for a friends wedding. The house is in the perfect location right off of Main Street, perfect for walking into town. Just minutes from restaurants, bars, and shopping. Everything is well maintained and clean. The owners answered right away when contacted, and left us plenty of information and suggestions for nearby entertainment. Of course we were preoccupied with wedding activities but we enjoyed the apartment and town as much as possible and had a great stay. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

A great place in a central location to see the Cape

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a small but with all the comforts of home, a well stocked kitchen, bath with shower and a efficiency style bedroom with eating table and small sofa. I was working on the Cape for a week and found it a wonderful home base. Its only a short walk to the center of Chatham in a very quiet neighborhood. The host Allison was accommodating and responded to my request to extend my stay ( the work took longer than I estimated) almost immediately. The apartment is spotless, pleasantly decorated and convenient.

Lovely accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment in addition to the adjacent two bedroom apartment to accommodate five adults for the weekend. It was perfect. The beds were great and the apartments were well appointed. The kitchen and bath are small but we didn't eat in and there were only two of us so it was fine. The apartment was immaculate and quaint. Allison couldn't have been more helpful or nicer. Would definitely return.
