About the Property

Sleeps 8: 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths and an outdoor shower

Songbirds sing you to sleep and summer southwest breezes whistle through pine, oak and cedar. Striped bass break the sunset waters of Taylors Pond. Nantucket Sound can be heard lapping just over the hill. Though the bustle of downtown Chatham is only 3.6 miles away, with free Cape Cod League baseball games, theaters and shops, The Pondhouse is blanketed from road noise and nestled on Critical Wildlife Area sixty feet from high tide mark! A .4 mile walk along hundreds of acres of preserved salt marsh brings you to Cockle Cove Beach and .8 miles to bike path! The Pondhouse is private yet open and airy and filled with light. It sports newly renovated gardens, renovated kitchen, laundry, paintings by local artists, craftsmen style finish carpentry and fireplace in main room. The spacious deck with grill sports what has been deemed the best sunsets in all of Chatham. WiFi, Cable, local phone, 23' flatscreen, DVD

Chatham has received the 'Distinctive Destinations Award Recipient' from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It's waters and history are diverse and unique.

Year Purchased: 1977

About: The Kolb family built The Pondhouse in 1977 and we have been caring for it ever since.

Why South Chatham, Chatham, MA, USA:
It is a treasured place of summer memories both for our family and for the many visitors we have rented to, some that return every summer.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Far enough away from the bustle of downtown to avoid the crowds, but close enough to enjoy the shops.
