The back yard has a new Lynx gas grill & a Weber charcoal grill available for your BBQ activities.

Dozens of Dennis favorite restaurants, bars, beaches & ice cream hot spots within 1 mile radius including The Oyster Company (4 doors down) The Wooden Shoe, The Ocean House, Sundae School, Kream ‘N Kone, Jim Plunkett’s Happy Hour @ the Improper (a quick 3 minute walk!), Irish Pub, Clancy’s, and the list goes on - bring your bikes, no need to drive :)

Dennis is home of 18 gorgeous Cape Cod beaches, our local favorite Sea Street Beach is a short ten minute walk with direct beach ½ mile from the front door to Depot Street Beach.

For you golfers, bring your clubs to hit up Dennis Pines & Dennis Highlands ... another favorite being Cranberry Valley in next-door Harwich.

5 miles from downtown Chatham for an afternoon of shopping. Other activities include Go-carts, mini golf, knick knack shops, kayak rentals, and much more.

To help to minimize traffic and get the true “Cape Cod” we’ve decided to offer Monday to Monday rentals. We hope this will help with certain guests who are only able to enjoy the weekend – this time in full; eliminate the Saturday turnover traffic drive down; and let you enjoy our favorite Sunday night post-beach BBQ sleepover for your last night’s stay before you head back to the office on Monday!

About Carolyn Launie Nolan

Carolyn & Tim are both financial advisors in the Boston area. Tim (BC '00) is originally from Winchester, MA; Carolyn (Georgetown '04) is originally from Milton, MA. We welcomed the 1st addition to the Nolan family on 10/12/12 and shortly thereafter moved from South Boston to Tim's hometown of Winchester... and named her Winnie! :) Little brother Dennis 'Denny' joined us 17 months later on 3/20/14 and YES is named after our favorite getaway town of Dennis Port :) Little nugget Marty "McFly" / "the one-man PARTY" joined us on 8/10/17.

Carolyn Launie Nolan purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why Carolyn Launie Nolan chose Dennis Port

We bought our little 'Chateau' the summer of 2010 and gave it a major face-lift :) Carolyn's family grew up with summers at Mayflower Beach in East Dennis and she had always dreamed of a little getaway. When we saw this property online for sale we knew it had strong bones (originally a Sears & Roebuck 1910 build) but need a little TLC ... with the help of New England Design & Construction, the 'Chateau' is now our dream vacation home we are excited to share with others!

What makes this bungalow unique

Everything from the front porch to the enormous fenced in front/back yard made us fall in love with this little bungalow! Of course it also doesn't hurt being walking distance to dozens of our favorite local restaurants/bars/golf courses & beaches!!! Some days we won't make it to the beach as we're too busy in the back yard playing yard games and grilling out :)

Great Home, Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Chateau, July 2017. It is a very nice, well appointed home in a great location. It easily accommodated our extended family,and had a great fenced in yard for our 2 Golden Retrievers to roam around. We have rented several properties on the cape over the years, and this home certainly fits in as one of the best to date. We would consider this home again in the future. We also had the opportunity to meet the owner, Carolyn and found her to be very helpful and friendly with info about things to do in the area.

Best week on the cape !

  • 5 of 5

We just had a really great week at The Chateau- the only bad part was that we had to leave! Everything was handled very professionally and we had lots of good advice and tips. This is a great house in a great location and has everything you would want in a cape house. We could walk to get coffee, meals, cocktails, beaches and it was also in a great location to travel to other areas of the cape. Beautiful yard, front porch for relaxing, plenty of space for everyone to enjoy vacation. We loved riding our bikes around town and to the beach or to get muffins in the morning and cookouts in the backyard and outdoor shower! Everything was clean and well kept . We will most definitely be back again next summer and hope we have started a new family tradition!! Thank you for sharing your house with us!

This was our first experience renting on the Cape as our family has owned a home for 15 years in west Yarmouth but sold in late 2015. The home is beautifully kept and fully equipped with everything your could need. The owners were wonderful keeping in touch leading up to and throughout our stay. The location can't be beat. We would highly recommend renting le chateau.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Chateau in September 2015. We had the best vacation week. Carolyn did a great job sending emails with tons of useful information on places to visit, places to eat, sights not to miss etc. The location was perfect. Great restaurants within walking distance along with beaches and shops. House was beautifully renovated, great kitchen for cooking, although we mostly ate out as we were on vacation! We brought our dog and he had the best time. The yard was great, fully fenced in and very large. Carolyn was so attentive to our family needs, she even left out a crib for us to use for our son. Everything was perfect. There is a binder with information on each village and town along the cape with restaurants, attractions, beach locations and costs. We loved our stay at the Chateau and can't wait to return again.

We had an absolute blast - the house is beautiful and perfectly set up. The yard was even bigger than we thought, and the fence was perfect for our dog. There wasn't a single thing to improve upon - we had a great time and everyone commented on how beautiful the house was. I was amazed at how much is down that end of Dennis (we've always stayed up by Mayflower), and the book of suggestions was invaluable (as were the emails, which I referred to daily when planning our next destination). I had searched rentals for weeks trying to find the perfect place - and I have absolutely found it.

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time staying at the Chateau. The description is 100% accurate in regards to the house itself and surrounding sights and things to do. Property was spotless and well stocked with the necessities. I would definitely recommed this rental to families or adults only trips, The Chateau accomodates everyone. The beaches are beautifulk and easily accessible from the Chateau.
