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. The Cockle Cove community of South Chatham is the best kept secret; rural and surrounded by vital marshlands including a salt water pond and channel to Nantucket Sound large enough for a 21' outboard center console sport fishing boat.
