About Ellen Peterson

Our home is a family -run vacation property. It is checked and maintained by at least one family member on a weekly basis. Upgrades are always on-going. We wish to present it as a place where we would want to spend time.

Ellen Peterson purchased this house in 2004

Why Ellen Peterson chose South Chatham

Chatham continues to be a very desirable place to visit because it projects the quaintness of old cape cod, while its small town quality continues to inspire the return of families year after year.

What makes this house unique

The living room is open to the kitchen which has an adjoining deck. There's plenty of parking with 2 driveways. One is on the front right hand side of the house and can accommodate 2 cars back to back. The other, more generous one, is on the left of the house and winds around to the back. This area has plenty of parking for additional guests. The attached garage adds to the convenience of unpacking/packing, and grocery shopping.

Great house with nice amenities

  • 5 of 5

The house was CLEAN and well stocked with towels, beach stuff, dish detergent, laundry detergent, spices, all the extras that are hard to bring on vacation! It was conveniently located. The only negative would be you are on a busy street but that would not be a deterrent for me as my kids are much older.

Spacious and Comfortable Home in So. Chatham

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed using Ellen's beautiful home for relaxing and as our base for exploring Cape Cod! Kitchen is fully equipped, bedding is comfortable, TV's and technology are up-to-date, three showers and use of a washer and dryer are helpful. We used the back patio everyday for sunning, eating or reading and resting. The highway running past the house is very busy, but plenty of space is available for parking in the driveways, as well as a garage. Only a few shops and restaurants in walking distance, but many more are just a short drive from this home. We would be glad to rent another time if we return to Cape Cod!

We absolutely loved our stay. The house was beautiful, clean and very centrally located between the towns of Chatham and Harwich. We were able to relax in the morning on the back deck with a cup of coffee and play lawn games in the front yard after a day at the beach. Having beach furniture for us to borrow was awesome and saved us a ton of room in the car. The owner was great to work with and answered any and all questions we had pre vacation and during our trip. Love, love, love this house and can't wait to go back!

I have rented this house for years now and every single visit has been like coming home. The property is very well maintained inside and out; it is exceptionally clean; it is very roomy; the appliances provided are quality and easy to use; its location to Forest Beach, Picese's restaurant, the bike path and downtown Chatham is very convenient. Great walking location as well. The owner is very accommodating and easily accessible if an issue arises. Overall, this property is awesome. I will continue to look forward to coming here every year!
