All New Cottage in Chatham Near Hardings Beach

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Welcome to our entirely renovated 'old Cape' cottage, with a sunny, open floor plan, brand new appliances and furnishings, washer/dryer and central air. After the beach, rinse off in the private outdoor shower before relaxing on the sunny patio.

The Space:

Create cherished family memories in our lovingly renovated cottage. Designed for today's living while retaining its 'Old Cape' charm, the sunny, open spaces and updated amenities will allow you to effortlessly enjoy your vacation. Available year-round whether to relax at the beach, to celebrate holidays, or just as an off-season get away.

Comfortable living space encourages everyone to gather for a spirited game of Chathamopoly or to snuggle in for a night at the movies on the 40' TV.

The gourmet kitchen features a breakfast island and is outfitted with stainless steel appliances, dishwasher, microwave, and professional cookware.

Each bedroom is uniquely decorated. There is an elegant couples retreat with a queen bed. A bright room with two twin beds that celebrates the beach cottage theme. Finally, feel like you're sleeping aboard a sailing vessel with the nautical themed twin over full bunk bed.

Keep the beach clutter and laundry contained in the back 'sandroom' with easy access to the outdoor shower that has both hot and cold running water.

Central heating and air conditioning keeps the cottage comfortable regardless of the weather.

A large bluestone patio right off the kitchen catches the warm afternoon sun and offers ample seating for entertaining. Fix a drink and unwind while cooking the catch of the day from the Chatham Fish & Lobster Company on either the gas or charcoal grill.

The large 1/2 acre lot is wooded on 3 sides, offering a fantastic sense of privacy, but the yard stays sunny and is great place for games or a round of tag.

Guest Access:

Guests have access to a wide variety of indoor, outdoor, and beach amenities.

There is a well appointed gourmet kitchen with dishwasher, full-size washer/dryer, full-size tub and shower, 40' TV, cable, wireless internet, books, and games. The central heating and air conditioning has a programmable thermostat. All essentials like comforters/blankets, pillows, linens, bath towels, paper goods, and cleaning products are provided, but remember to bring your own beach towels.

Outdoors there is a large lawn for games, a sunny patio with ample seating and both a gas and charcoal grill, a covered front porch, and off-street parking.

For the beach there are several chairs, a beach umbrella, and umbrella anchor in the basement.

The Neighborhood:

The cottage is tucked away on a quiet, private street, but remains close to everything wonderful that Chatham and the Cape have to offer!

One of the best beaches on the Sound, Hardings Beach, is less than 1 mile away. Unique to this beach is sidewalk access from our cottage for a safe walk or bike ride. We are also just a short drive to the other beaches on Nantucket Sound, Oyster Pond, or School House Pond, which is one of the nicest fresh water ponds in the area.

For bikers it is easy to pick up the Old Colony Rail trail to Harwich where it connects to the Cape Cod rail trail that runs 22 miles from Dennis to Wellfleet.

The charming Main Street of Chatham Village is less than 2 miles east on Rte 28. Harwichport is a few miles west. Both favorite spots for a day of shopping or a night out.

House Rules:

First rule is to relax and have fun!

Second is to remember to bring your own beach towels.

Finally, to continue to keep the cottage enjoyable for everyone we ask that you:

- Do not smoke

- Do not bring your pets (sorry, but we have allergies)

- Be respectful of our neighbors as several live there full time

- Dispose of all remaining food and place garbage in the bin before you depart.

- Place all dirty dishes in dishwasher and run.

- Wash and dry all used linens and towels prior to check out

- Keep the cottage clean and organized

- Report any damages or concerns to the Owners so that we may address the issues

- Return keys to the lock box

Check in is after 3:00PM

Check out is before 11:00AM

Perfect Cape House... even in the winter!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this lovely home, so we obviously love it! Great location, clean, updated and lots of amenities inside! Not having to bring towels and linens is a big bonus about staying here. It is also a kid friendly house with bunk beds and kid plates, bowls, some toys and even a folding stool in the bathroom so they can reach the sink.

The owners are so easy to work with and are extremely responsive to any inquiries. We plan to book this house again, in any season!

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely property to rent for an October trip to the Cape. Probably one of the cleanest properties we've seen- the owners clearly take pride and great care for their home. Modern, yet cozy! Would highly recommend to others!

Beautifully designed and decorated cottage

  • 5 of 5

Well designed and decorated cottage with a well stocked kitchen and comfortable furnishings. My husband and I stayed a week. The outdoor spaces are very inviting and, if there during beach weather, there are beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels available. Paper and cleaning products also on hand. Would be a bit of a walk to Hardings beach with small children, but a quick drive. Located in a quiet neighborhood but short drive to town and StopNShop grocery. Try Brax Landing for Sunday brunch and lobster dinner. Scenic trail at Ft. Hill at National Seashore. Day trip to Nantucket for the whale museum. Yankee Ingenuity and Yellow Umbrella Books for shopping in Chatham. Seals at the fishing pier, trail at Monomoy Refuge. We use VRBO frequently and this rental ranks at the top! (If have an early morning flight, be aware you are requested to launder and fold all bedding and towels upon checkout.)

Very Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cottage in a great location. Beach is a 2 minute drive, or a great bike ride. Very close to the Cape Cod Rail Trail. A short drive to Main Street in Chatham. The cottage was newly renovated and very comfortable.

Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our trip to Chatham! The house was in a perfect location to go to Hardings beach, even close enough to go for a morning run down to the beach. Also very close to Ridgevale beach where our kids loved going! The cottage was charming, very clean and fully stocked. (Good pans and chopping knives which is a rare find where we usually vacation in Outer Banks, NC). The owner was very responsive and helpful when we did have questions!

A Great Modern Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely and appointed perfectly. We found whatever we needed, scotch tape, a blender, pots, all new and it was all just where you think it all should be.

The home is modern, clean and up to date. The beds were fine, comfort-wise. Closets had enough different kinds of hangers. Linens and towels were clean and neatly folded. The kitchen was perfect to work in and the decoration was cheery. There were beach chairs and beach towels for us. The neighborhood was quiet and the house was quite close to their lovely town beach.

Make sure to take photos of the sunset from Harding Beach. The town was nearby and major food shopping was about 10 minutes away, although there were plenty of little local stores for food as well.

There is only one bathroom, which is small, so large families might find it a bit crowded, but if you are willing to share, this cottage is definitely worth a stay. The owner was wonderful, and I was really impressed with the professionalism of the booking company. I would definitely work with them again.
