Great bang for your buck

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying in Chatham at this little cottage. It was exactly as the pictures show. For a family of 5, vacations and lodging can be pricey. But this cottage was very affordable for us. It was cozy and really had everything we needed. A bed for everyone, a well stocked kitchen, TV with satellite and Wifi. We really appreciated many of the extra supplies that come in handy when you are a tourist. We used the beach umbrella and chairs when we had our beach days. There were a few beach toys, we left behind the shovels that we bought. We loved the pond that was a short walk from the cottage. Paul had plenty of life jackets, oars and paddles for the canoe, kayak and rowboat that are down by the pond. I really enjoyed paddling on this quiet pond and we enjoyed just sitting on the small porch reading our books as the sun set. Chatham is a very busy little town. The downtown shopping area is really cute, but parking is a little hard. I would recommend checking out the Chatham Lighthouse and the beach next to it. The beach is really nice, but you have to take a shuttle from downtown during the day as the parking is just 30 minutes by the lighthouse. We stopped after 6pm when they don't enforce the parking rule. That turned out to be a highlight because we saw a huge herd of seals out in the water, it was so cool! Chatham is a nice location as there are many restaurants, grocery stores and a laundromat nearby. Main street is very busy though, lots of traffic. The place was easy to get to once we figured out where to turn. We passed by it the first time because the address is hard to see. Maybe some landmarks would be helpful. Finally, Paul was great at communicating with me and giving me the info I needed. And he was very prompt with responding to my questions. He made himself available to me as needed. Overall we really enjoyed out stay in Chatham and I would recommend this cottage to families.

Our second year of staying at Paul's cottage and found it just as homey as last year. The place is clean and in a quiet cottage colony close to the center of Chatham.

Perfect Cape Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is perfect if you want to stay close to Chatham but want your own place away from the busy Chatham tourist activity. It's close enough to town that you can bike there in minutes and just far away enough to let you have your own quiet place to relax at the end of the day. Our kids were able to bike to Hardings beach and my wife and I biked to the Monomoy Coffee Company in Chatham every morning for coffee and pastries. Pond is the perfect size for canoeing and kayaking, which we did. The owner was great! Paul is very easy to reach and made sure we had everything we needed for a great vacation.

We can't wait for next summer!

Downtown Chatham has some beautiful stores and restaurants to shop, dine and unwind. This is a real old fashioned comfortable Cape Cod town. You can visit the penny candy store or ice cream shops. If you can catch the Friday night band concert on the town green. You have to get there early as it does fill up quickly.

The sports minded can golf at the Chatham Bars golf course, bike or jog on the Cape Bike Trail or charter a deep sea fishing excursion. Tour the Chatham lighthouse and take in the view at Lighthouse Beach. This is the southernmost beach of the Cape Cod National Sea Shore and it is outstanding.
