Property description

The ''Chatham Retreat'' is clean, cozy, and tastefully decorated. Available for year-round vacation rentals, it has winter water views and a fireplace. 1/5 mile walk to beach. Quiet neighborhood, lovely yard with patio. Recommended for families up to five or six. And for 'girl friends' off-season get-away (comfortable for up to 4-5).

A beautiful, long, secluded beach on Nantucket Sound is a scenic five-minute walk away. Visit 'Heaven's Hill' and enjoy the spectacular water views with 75 acres of conservation land, located a stone's throw from our property. Just a short walk to tennis courts, playground and one of the smallest public libraries in New England.

A wonderful place to create family memories...just one of the many reasons our guests return year after year.

The Chatham Retreat is a wonderful combination of 'sand between your toes' Cape Cod, but with up to date amenities...washer/dryer, dishwasher, cable, and bring your laptop in summer for our wireless internet access! Expanded cable includes NESN! (Limited channels in off-season.)

In addition to the many reviews under the "review" tab, following are more "guest comments!"

GUEST COMMENTS
Here are “some” excerpts from our guest book and emails. We have provided the Chatham Retreat as a vacation rental since 1997.

We absolutely love your place ... We will recommend your place to anyone who is looking for a Cape Rental and keep your place in mind for the future.
B Family, Arlington, MA

The house is in a perfect location!
S Family, New Canaan, CT

The house is charming!
P Family, PA

We love this house! Perfect vacations 2 years in a row! Love the outdoor shower.
B Family, Massachusetts

(A comment from a family that has come every summer since 2001) Another wonderful vacation at the Chatham Retreat! This place is great for us to enjoy a week away with the comforts of home. Close to the beach, close to town, easy to get to… We spent most of our time on Forest Beach. Our usual journeys took us to watch the fishing boats at the pier, playing at the playgrounds, and shopping for penny candy. Thanks again for sharing your place with us!
L. Family

Our first trip to the “Cape” and we will be back! We loved this South Chatham location, excellent for exploring the whole of Cape Cod.
H Family, Toronto, Canada

We had a great vacation at your cottage. Although due to the weather, it wasn't the vacation we wanted, for me it was the vacation we needed. I managed to read 2 (!!) books... In your description of the cottage and its surroundings, you did not exaggerate in any way: It's as peaceful, beautiful and serenity-inducing (for lack of a better term) as you say. Although in the 3 afternoons when the weather was OK we took the kids to the wide, Coast Guard beaches, they both told me that their favorite was Forest Beach, because the waves were smaller and because you could find both lucky stones and shells. Thank you very much for a much needed serene and relaxing vacation!

This is a nice relaxing, quiet place to "retreat" to, play games and hang out. We loved all of the birds and the fox who came through the yard.

Cape Cod is such a beautiful place, and the Chatham Retreat is, for us, all that its name implies. Our time here was a refreshing retreat from the busy-ness of daily life and an opportunity to draw near to the God who created this stunningly beautiful place...May God bless each guest who passes this way.
M. Family, from TN

We love “South Chatham” especially the Chatham Retreat. A perfect location for the beach and Heaven’s Hill, a bird watcher’s paradise. Quiet and relaxing. The home was comfy and inviting. This was for a special celebration- hope to come again for a future celebration! Thank you! Thank you! What a find!
E Family, Reno, Nevada

We loved the “Chatham Retreat.” Thanks for all the great tips on where to go and what to do. We had a ton of fun! Your cottage is adorable and comfortable and we all want to install outdoor showers in California! Thanks again!
DM Guests

Great location – much more character than downtown, and wonderful to walk to the beach with kids. All very accessible with small children.
D Family, London, England

(Comments from a family who has visited every summer for over 5 years.) The Chatham Retreat is a really great place to bring a family. It's a short walk to Forest Beach (free) so trips back and forth for lunch are easy without packing a big cooler.
BL

I felt immediately comfortable here. The wonderful living room light helped me focused on writing not rambling. It felt like my own secret beach that I shared. Two weeks is never enough but I tried to breathe in enough sea air to pack my cells till I return.
J. D.

It was our first trip to the Cape Cod and we felt so blessed to have chosen the Sullivan’s house in South Chatham as our home base. We love its natural beauty and uncrowded spaces.
M Family, Eureka, CA

You have a beautiful spot – thank you for sharing!
TH Family, Quebec, Canada

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Hi! We have 3 children in our family. We enjoy being so close to the beach and really love the Cape!

Why the Owner Chose South Chatham, Chatham, MA, USA:
I will never forget my first trip to the Cape when I was 10 years old.. the ocean, the sky, the beaches... it is another world. As a teenager, I had the opportunity to come for a couple of weeks for multiple summers as a babysitter for a lovely family. When I was in college, I found work on the Cape and spent many summers there. I have traveled a lot and lived in other countries, but Cape Cod is the 'home in my heart.' Although we have owned our Chatham Retreat for over 17 years, my heart still flutters over the fact that we have a house so close to a beach on Nantucket Sound. I think of this on every short walk to, and on, 'our' beach, I never tire of this wonderful experience! And I enjoy going to the Cape every season of the year!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Short walk to beach and great views!! Sitting in the backyard and listening to the ocean breeze in the trees...and the assortment of bird songs and calls. Lying on the chase lounge under a sky full of stars...and hearing the ocean when the breeze carries its sound. Quintessential Cape Cod cottage feel with present day amenities. Short walk to tennis court that seems like our own, surrounded with pines and scrub oaks. Short walk to Baker's Hardware (go in and buy a calendar...and chat with Mr. Baker) and neighborhood restaurants. Passing smiling people on the quiet streets - enjoying the beauty of the neighborhood. Along with finding beautiful shells...we also enjoy collecting heart shaped rocks on Forest Beach!
