About the property

Harding's Beach Area

New listing off of Barnhill Rd on the way to popular Harding's Beach,this updated three bedroom house offers a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere perfect for families or couples. Nestled down a private road in a quiet neighborhood of mostly seasonal homes,you will be only a short 4-5 minute stroll to Barn Hill town landing on the beautiful oyster river. Although there is no swimming beach here, it does have a public boat ramp and is a nice place to just wander to and appreciate the scenery and tranquility. Kids will love going back day after day to poke around the shore looking for horseshoe crabs or watching the local shell fishermen bring in their day's catch.

About a 15 minute walk, short bike ride or quick drive in the other direction is beautiful Harding's Beach with public facilities,lifeguards and a canteen truck.Other popular beaches,including fresh water ponds,are also close by.

The home has a nice deck with tables and chairs and a gas grill.And the adjacent brick patio offers some shade surrounded by a flowering cherry tree and perennial plantings.

The house features a cozy living room with fireplace,tv, and dvd,updated kitchen with adjoining dining area which can also serve as additional living space.Here is a spacious dining room table perfect for night time board games. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a nice island with bar stool seating. The two first floor bedrooms are furnished with twin beds.One of these easily converts to a king.The first floor bathroom has a tub and shower.

Upstairs is a master bedroom with a king size bed, TV , small deck overlooking the patio,and full bath featuring a jacuzzi tub!!

All bedrooms have ceiling fans and ac units.The livingroom also has a ceiling fan.

Besides all of the various beaches,Chatham has plenty of other activities to offer....A couple of small museums, seal watching,fishing,public tennis and basketball courts,great bike trails,golf,beach yoga,health and fitness club, kayaking,sailing ..........

At night we have many restaurants,casual pizza or fried clams to fine dining. Monomoy Theater offers a different play or musical every week, Chatham Anglers baseball under the lights at Veteran's Field, several summer concert series and the famous friday night Chatham Band concerts in Kate Gould Park.

Possible day trips from Chatham might include the JFK Museum in Hyannis,Heritage Plantation in Sandwich,Provincetown on the very tip of Cape Cod,Boston and all it's historical sights,(and Red Sox games), or take the ferry in neighboring Harwich to Nantucket.

About Bob Sneden

I was born in New York but my family moved, when I was ten years old, to Chatham, where we always spent our annual two week summer vacation.

While in high school I started mowing lawns and doing other yard work to earn money. That was a long time ago and I'm still at it! I've been running my own small landscaping maintenance business for about 40 years now with about 100 accounts,all in Chatham. Many of them are rental properties and I always thought I'd like to own a rental property of my own. Now I do!

Other interests of mine include music....I'm a big jazz fan and enjoy checking out the local live music scene. Also I am a 30 year member of the Chatham Town Band.(trombone... come up and say 'hello' if you go to the Friday night concert !). And I love traveling in the off season winter months. These days I spend a good part of the winter in Bali, Indonesia and Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Having lived here nearly my entire life, I know Chatham well and live nearby.I will be glad to help make your vacation stay as enjoyable as possible in any way I can. Need a suggestion for a local seafood restaurant? Need something to do with the kids on a rainy day?Don't hesitate to pick up the phone to ask for advice!

Great location and nice home.

  • 5 of 5

Very good location, with the house situated on a quiet street, very close to Harding Beach, and a short drive into Main Street in Chatham. The house is as advertised with more than enough room for a family of 4. Overall, I would highly recommend this house for the cape. It is a great value.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We fully enjoyed our stay in Ocean port cottage. The place was really nice, well kept with all amenities. The owner Bob has maintained his property really well and we felt quite homely there. We will definately plan to come again next time and will also recommend this place to others. Thank you Bob.

Great vacation getaway

We have returned to this lovely home several times and always have a great experience. We especially enjoy the lovely enclosed garden which is a tremendous place to read, relax and getaway for a week. Location is convenient to all the Chatham highlights and Bob is a gracious host.

The property was great. Close to town landing. Close to beach, but you need to drive to it.

Perfect location, quiet "street" Cape Cod at its best.

  • 5 of 5

From reservation to departure and after Bob, the owner was very helpful and accommodating. We arrived late and in the dark of night, Bob made it so we were able to easily find the key and let ourselves in to the house. After departure we left an item which Bob sent back to us very expeditiously.

The house is well appointed for families. My small children, 3 and 6, shared one downstairs room in the twin beds and my husband and I used the room next door with a VERY comfortable king size bed that could be split into twins. Did I mention the bed was comfortable, one of the most comfortable beds I've been in at a rental house to date and we've rented many!

My mom, who traveled with us, used the upstairs bedroom that is essentially its own suite with the larger bathroom and bedroom with small balcony off the bedroom area. Wonderful view from there as well. The full size washer and dryer are upstairs as well.

The photos do not do the backyard justice, it has a large table and beautiful flowers for an amazing setting. Due to the road being unpaved, it is only traveled by residents from that street and therefore very peaceful day and night. Lounge chairs for resting, reading, napping.

The house is off the beaten path, but walking distance to Oyster river to rent kayaks and other types of boats. A short drive to very family friendly beaches and the house has chairs, umbrellas, and people have left small beach toys for kids to use. We were there in July and it was unseasonably warm so gratefully the window air conditioners were very helpful. The kitchen has every gadget needed to prepare any type of meal and the gas grill was helpful on several occasions.

Of course my husband needed to get his fresh lobster fix, so many meals were had outside the house. Some places close by had some great take out places or bake at home.

One day was a drive to the ferry to Nantucket for a day and that was a beautiful drive. Chatham has a lovely Americana feel and the downtown area was perfect for our family.
