Property description

Welcome to Summer Hydrangea, quite possibly the finest property value for an exceptional summer rental in Chatham. Privacy, comfort and a thoughtful attention to details that is uncommon in most vacation rentals, all exists in abundance within this distinctive property. The three+ bedroom, 1 & ½ bath residence, that sleeps 6+, boasts outstanding amenities including a solarium with a generously sized hot-tub that overlooks the grounds that have been beautifully designed and are professionally maintained. This vacation home is minutes from the very heart of downtown Chatham yet just far enough away so that you can enjoy some wonderful seclusion from most everyone else who has come to town during your vacation stay.

The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed that sleeps two, a flat panel TV and abundant closet space.

The second bedroom, that is also on the first floor, also has a queen-sized bed that sleeps 2 and also has its own half bath.

The third bedroom on the second floor had two twin beds that sleeps two and its own skylight to enjoy the sea breezes.

The adjoining sitting room on the second level boasts classic modern furniture, an oversized flat panel TV, two wonderful skylights to let the light and breezes in and a convertible couch that can turn into a full sized bed in a pinch for unexpected or last minute guests.

For all bedrooms, there are window air conditioners that are installed in the summer months, for in the rare event that the cooling breezes from the Atlantic are not enough to maintain a comfortable environment in the bedrooms.

The efficient modern kitchen is well stocked with a wide variety of quality cooking utensils, a Keurig as well as a drip coffee maker, microwave, blender, dishwasher, and large refrigerator. The kitchen spice cabinet is also equipped with a variety spices, oils and seasonings that the owners regularly freshen and replenish. If you are looking to cook and entertain during your vacation stay, we are sure that the kitchen will prove to be more than up for your needs. There is also a large propane BBQ grill on the property to meet your needs for outdoor grilling while on vacation. If there is any additional specialty kitchenware that you may require, the owners should be able to accommodate your request within short order.

The main living room has comfortable seating, a stereo, numerous live plants and an oversized flat panel TV. The dining area easily seats six and the table expands to accommodate eight with available leaves. The main bathroom is beautifully designed with modern fittings, including a striking cobalt blue vessel sink and a hand crafted, stained glass window stunningly executed displaying a Hydrangea motif. Numerous live plants, antiques and furniture of uncommon quality and design fill this vacation home and enhance the experience of your stay in your new vacation home in Chatham. Comcast cable is wired to all televisions in the home and high speed wireless internet connectivity is available through the house, deck and grounds.

The home's attached solarium boasts an array of carefully tended live plants as well as an oversized 4 person hot tub that is serviced twice a week and kept sparklingly clean for your relaxation. You enter the solarium from the main family room of the house and, from there, you can walk out to the deck overlooking the spectacular back yard and gardens. If you have children who would like to play outdoors, the backyard leads to the additional quarter acre lot that is also beautifully planted and professionally maintained. The grounds would be the envy of any greensman and the owners hope that they work to make your stay at Summer Hydrangea that much the more enjoyable.

As many people who come to Chatham are interested in spending time at the many beaches in town, we provide a wonderful complement of beach chairs, beach umbrellas with sand anchors, coolers and a great array of beach toys for children. We have installed a tremendous oversized Mahogany outdoor shower, in the Cape Cod style, to make returning from the beach to be an easier affair.

As owners who reside locally, we take pride in offering a truly well equipped, comfortable home for you and your family to enjoy a relaxing vacation stay. This year, instead of settling for the typical vacation rental, we invite your to come and enjoy your special time on the Cape at your new vacation home in Chatham, Summer Hydrangea!

This exceptional summer home is located minutes from the center of Chatham Village to be close enough to everything that makes Chatham, and Cape Cod, great, but far enough away for you to enjoy the privacy and serenity that Summer Hydrangea graciously offers.

 

Owner info

About the owner: We are extensively well traveled and we know what we love, and hate, to find in a hotel, resort or vacation rental home. We have worked very hard to ensure that Summer Hydrangea embodies the very best of what we would want to find if we were coming to Chatham for a great Cape Cod vacation.

Why the Owner Chose West Chatham, Chatham, MA, USA:
Summer Hydrangea has been a special home for our family for decades. As we live a short distance away, it seemed a shame to not share it with others who would want to have a truly special place to spend their vacation time in Chatham.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
My wife and I live local to Chatham year 'round. Because of this, we are able to devote the time and attention to our special family home to make it truly exceptional. When you choose to book your vacation at Summer Hydrangea, you will find a home that is very clean and thoughtfully equipped to ensure that you have a great "home-base" from which to enjoy your Cape Cod vacation.
