Sit on the porch in one of the rockers and enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon beverage of choice and watch the world go by. As soon as you drive in the driveway and smell the salt air, you start to relax and feel the welcoming embrace of this historical in town main house and cottage. The kitchen and huge dining room is often the central gathering space to plan the days activities, prepare the evening cocktails or make meals to take out on to the front porch or back patio and lawn.
Spend your days alternating between reading in the hammock and walking to Oyster Pond Beach for a swim for some time in the sun, and then back to the lawn. Ideally situated, you park your car for the week and either walk/take a bike ride or meander down to the beach.
Our Home is IDEAL for the family and friends of the bride or groom. The dining room can easily host a small rehearsal dinner and our proximity to the Queen Anne Inn is a plus for additional guests!

About Betty Quigley
We are now into our 11th year of owning the Corner Pearl and each year, the home has gotten better with each and every improvement. This year's improvement is a new front porch with more room to rock, and view! WE love how much our guests enjoy the comforts, floor plan and that front porch. The floor plan is ideal for gatherings giving everyone the feeling of never being on top of each other. That and her ideal location just speaks to enjoying all that Chatham has to offer without getting in your car and trying to find a parking spot in town. This is an in town location which is out of town! We love this house and have been creating the best memories for our families and over eight brides and two grooms! We love the fact that families elect to get married out of our home. How special.
Betty Quigley purchased this House in 2005
Why Betty Quigley chose Chatham
Location, Location, Location YARD and the FRONT PORCH Minutes from the BEACH! Along with ample parking
What makes this House unique
The tree outside the front door was built the same year as the home and he speaks when the winds blow. He has been there guarding this home and when you sit on the front porch late at night and listen to his leaves, you will know exactly what I am referring to. Very special.

Wonderful family vacation spot!!
Our family had a wonderful vacation stay at this beautiful home. The location is hard to beat because of its close proximity to town and the beach. It was perfect for a large family. We never felt overcrowded. We loved the large dining room where we shared some great meals together. We also enjoyed the great outdoor sitting area at night by the fire pit. Betty and Joe couldn't have been better hosts. They were always available to answer any questions we had. Thanks!! We are looking forward to returning next year .
My extended family (8 adults and 4 kids) spent a week at this gorgeous home. The house is very spacious and we were able to spread out with a room dedicated as a kids play room and one dedicated to adults for reading, talking, playing games etc. The huge dining room table was a perfect place to gather for our large group. The bedroom layout was ideal for us. We put the two families with small children in the upstairs rooms, the grandparents in the downstairs master and the newlyweds in the separate cottage. Everyone had plenty of space and privacy. The back yard was great for wiffle ball games or relaxing on the hammock or by the fire pit.
The home's location was ideal. We walked into town pretty much daily/nightly for ice cream or shopping. We easily walked to the children's beach or up the hill to the grocery store and the bigger beaches were only a short drive away.
As everyone has said, the owners were very approachable and easy to work with. They provided a very well equipped house with beach toys, board games & puzzles, plenty of beach towels, pillows and blankets as well as a fully stocked kitchen!
We definitely hope to stay here again!
One of my favorite Vacations!
We had 4 families, all with 1 or 2 young kids staying on this gorgeous property. It was perfect! This comfy home is perfectly situated within Chatham- a quick walk to the beach, town, super market and pharmacy. The amenities were also amazing. We didn't have to bring much in our cars b/c beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, etc. we're provided for us. A huge plus when traveling far with small kids! The kitchen and dining were excellent for entertaining and eating. We were able to fit everyone comfortably around the large table. The home is also super spacious. There were so many different sitting areas, that someone could be quietly taking a nap while the kids were playing in another room. We spent a lot of time outside on the lawn, BBQ'ing on the patio and relaxing on the couches by the fire pit. Betty and Joe were incredibly helpful and reliable. Their home was clean when we arrived, they made sure we were comfortable and suggested day and night activities during our stay. I highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in the Cape. I cannot wait to return next year!
The PERFECT Mutli-Family Vaca
My name is Isaac, and I was one of 4 families that shared this property during our visit. First off, the area is perfectly located. Being that this house was a stone's throw to the bay/beach, and short walk to the sandwich shop made for easy mornings and stress-free days. We walked with 6 kids to the baseball game, and to town. Town has every type of attraction that you could want- art, food, shopping...and you walk back to the house before your kid's ice cream melts!
I also love the fact that the lawn in the back was "in the back." All of the kids were able to play outside on our 2 non-beach days without the fear of traffic or bikers. Inside: We all enjoyed a few MAJOR details. One, we were able to enjoy our meals together. Not all of us get to spend much time together, so the dining area provided a great place with plenty of room for meals, drinks/laughter and also the occasional kiddie dance party! Second to that, were the 2 living rooms. Sometimes you wanted to get away from the kids, or someone else's kids, and you could also find a couch to relax on and read, or catch an early nap! Number 3 is the room and bed size. I am 6'4, so keeping me happy in terms of a room is not easy! We had a lot of shelves to unpack our things (although our daughter kept ripping the clothes off of the shelves haha). But more importantly, no crying kids our loud parents were heard (we were upstairs). Our room was upstairs, and away from "the party," but we had 2 couples upstairs as well and no one was ever on top of one another. The 4th might sound silly, but the amount of bathrooms also helped! Drinking+food=necessity. Every family had their own, which made this abode feel a lot like our own.
Now, the owner. She gave us everything we needed-keys, clean house, and space! The only issues we had was on the 2nd day our garbage got raided by animals, and her and her husband were there the next day with a brand new system for the garbage cans; without even coming into the house! Then, we ran out of propane in the fire pit and her husband called the town store and had one put on hold for us, so we swapped them out and had fire once again! The owners were open to our needs, very accommodating and very nice!
We are already booked for next year. This house's spots go quick! and with the amount of space, amenities and location, this house is a NO-BRAINER!!!!
Best week ever!
The corner pearl has something to offer for EVERYONE! We vacationed with 8 adults and 4 toddlers/babies and there was more than enough space for all. We easily could have fit an additional family. Mornings were spent out on the front porch enjoying our coffee. Our enjoyable afternoons involved walking down to oyster pond and letting the little ones effortlessly float. The small beach is perfect for families as the little ones can chase the minnows and collect sea shells without having to worry about waves knocking them down. The house is equipped with all you could possibly need for a week at the beach. The men were able to go out fishing at the local marina, which was followed up by grilling some fish tacos back at the house. The tremendous farm table setup allowed all to dine together and enjoy lots of laughter. After the little ones went to sleep we kicked up our feet around the fire pit and were able to unwind.
The property is spacious and has room for all to enjoy outdoor play. Betty and Joe were even nice enough to allow us to setup a blow up pool so one afternoon we enjoyed letting the children play in the yard.
Midweek we were able to pack up the kids and walk over to the local Chatham A's basball game - we were able to picnic while the kids ran around at the play ground adjacent to the field. You need to take a ride down to lighthouse point beach for some seal watching and some amazing sunsets. Don't forget to stop at the local seafood market to pick up some snacks. Your camera is essential as you are sure to want to take some family pictures in the dunes--a great Christmas card photo perhaps.
The grand finale was on the last night walking into town to enjoy the local concert and having the kids parade around the gazebo with balloons. On the walk home we stopped for some homemade ice cream and we all went to bed with a smile on our face because it truly was the best week ever. Betty and Joe have created a home away from home for all who vacation in Chatham. Their accommodations are not just beautiful but comfortable. The rooms are spacious - plenty of room for a pack n play in each and the bathrooms are perfect especially having two bathtubs. Lets not forget the outdoor shower which is sure to have you refreshed after a day at the beach.
We are sure to return as the trip couldn't have been better!
You all were an absolute pleasure to have our home and we thank you so much for the wonderful words. We hope you and your friends continue to return and make memories in Chatham! Best to you all winter long and we hope we see you next Summer!
Betty and Joe
We rented this beautiful home for my brother's wedding weekend. We had wonderful plans for a small, casual rehearsal dinner outside on the patio and the bride & groom getting ready in the cottage & main house with everyone able to go back and forth. Mother Nature had other plans as it poured all weekend. But that did not matter at all! The home is perfectly located so folks (with umbrellas) could walk from downtown. It is spacious and so well set up that between the two living rooms and dining room everyone had a seat. The cottage and main house still worked wonderfully for everyone to get ready in separate spaces and the bride & groom did their first look on the front porch. The best thing I can say is that it is truly their home and it is beautifully decorated. I could go on and on as to how happy we were to be in this lovely home which fit the joy and love of the wedding weekend! Thank you to Betty & Joe for sharing their home with others. Betty is an absolute gem to work with – super responsive and very friendly and clear.
Jenabeth and family! Huge thank you and I am so happy you all had a great time. We do love our home as well and so enjoy when great memories are made. Hope you all come back and I PROMISE better weather! Best, Betty and Joe
