About the Property
1 Bedroom apt + Convertible bed; 1/2 Bath in apartment; outside shower; sleeps 3
The 'Lillian Spohn' apartment is on the 2nd floor and has 3 rooms with a flexible layout--perfect for a couple or a family of three vacationing on a budget. Accommodates 2 adults and 1 child easily. The large eat-in kitchen is light and airy with full-sized appliances and seating for 4. The bedroom has a comfortable double and twin bed, while the living room has a pull-out couch, for additional sleeping accommodations. The living room also has additional seating, cable TV. Wi-Fi is available throughout the house. There is an indoor half bath (no indoor shower) and a fully-enclosed outdoor shower for the exclusive use of Lillian Spohn renters. The shower is conveniently located at the base of the outside stairs leading to the apartment. Robes are provided.
We realize that many travelers not familiar with the tradition of Cape Cod outdoor showers may think this arrangement is odd. On Cape Cod, we think that taking a shower inside in the summer is odd! Why would you want to track sand and salt into your house and steam it up taking a shower when you can take a perfectly lovely shower outside?
As you drive or walk around the beautiful older parts of Chatham, if you look carefully you may notice that almost every house has an enclosed outdoor shower. At our house, about 1 mile from Ship's Light, we have two indoor showers which are barely used in the summer--but we stand in line to use the outdoor shower. So we invite you to embrace the Cape Cod tradition when you stay in the Lillian Spohn apartment; we think you will like it!
A small covered upstairs deck, side yard and gas grills are also available for renters; shared use of a washing machine and dryer is available in the garage.
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 Lillian Spohn apartment at Ship’s Light is rented for 3-night minimum stays during the summer and shoulder 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.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: 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.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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 are 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. The Lillian Spohn apartment is a comfortable and affordable launching pad from which to enjoy all that Chatham and the Cape have to offer.
