About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath With Upscale Amenities and Convenience.

This classic cape family home is perfect for your cape cod experience. Decorated with finer amenities (furniture, art, linens, towels and more), this three floor vacation home has it all. Enjoy the newly renovated basement with a family room, private bed and bath and game area. The first floor is bright and airy, with dining room that opens to the patio (with views of Ryder's Cove), a master bed and bath (also with water views), and entertaining area. The second floor has two more bedrooms (both with skylights) and another updated bath. The property has an outdoor shower, large private yard, deeded rights to small beach across rte.28 and parking for three cars. It has conservation land behind the property and is very quiet. We love watching the sunset from the lawn and then seeing the stars! It also offers convenience with wifi, staples like beach towels and chairs, and flat screens on each floor.

In the center of it all, it's a five minutes drive to Main Street, and located in between the famed Wequasset and Chatham Bars Inn. Close to the famous trails and beaches of Chatham and Orleans. A beloved get-away for our family, we are inviting others to enjoy this experience. A one-of-kind with only 4 weeks rented annually.

About Barbara and Peter Erickson

Busy Boston family with two young kids. We love New England for the beauty of its natural resources and local village feel.

Barbara and Peter Erickson purchased this house in 2014

Why Barbara and Peter Erickson chose North Chatham

Chatham is the best for families. Beautiful sandy beaches, with a thriving restaurant and shopping scene. We love being close to it all and yet quiet, with the stars at night, the quiet over breakfast and the space to read, run, and relax.

What makes this house unique

The kids fell in love with the rope swing at first glance. We loved that it was incredibly sunny, bright and quiet. The glimpse of water from the patio and first floor is always a joy and the open floor plan and modern amenities make it a real plus on the cape.

Amazing vacation home for a family.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Barbara and Peter's property for a week with my hubby, 2 young sons, my sister in-law and her 2 children and we had a great time. The house is beautifully furnished and fully stocked with all of the necessities. It was very well kitted out with beach equipment and things to keep the kids busy while in the house. We could not have asked for more.

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Sandy Purse was great! Barbara was very prepared and provided us with everything we needed to know before we arrived and also provided a book for us upon our arrival.

The house was great with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, and everything was so nicely appointed. It was also great that the beach chairs were there for our day at the beach and the grill made it nice to eat in. Location was close to town but also nice and quiet.

We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend the house to others.

Great getaway! The home is so beautifully appointed, I and in a nice, convenient location!

We needed to be in Chatham for a niece's rehearsal and wedding, and this comfortable home with cozy beds was perfect. I wish we could have stayed longer!

Wonderful Home!

  • 4 of 5

We were in Chatham to attend a wedding in September. The Sandy Purse was an easy 5 minute drive to the Chatham Bars Inn and to the quaint center of town. The owners were very easy to work with and let us know they were accessible should we need anything during our stay (which we did not). We chose to bring our own towels to facilitate departure and it was easy enough as instructed to put the first load of sheets into the washer. One note to beach-goers would be that the beach is across a busy road and nearly a mile from the house, not a safe walk but an easy drive. This lovely home perfectly accommodated our family of 7 adults and we all truly enjoyed our stay.
