Tribute & fond memories

October 7, 2014

This house was perfect for our needs. We needed a place which felt like our home at the Cape for so many summers. We had to all be under one roof, sharing stories, memories, laughs & tears. We came to the Cape to sprinkle my husband's ashes at sea. The house is large, spacious and clean! The furnishings served their purpose and the fireplace made for the perfect atmosphere. I was able to prepare a sit down dinner for 20, plenty of pots, etc. The two refrigerators made prepping and serving very easy. Tara cleaned the house prior to our arrival and Carver, her spouse and the Caretaker took care that our every need was met. Every member of my family was thrilled to have been able to spend the weekend at such a warm home for dad's final sendoff. The home owner introduced me to the Stage Harbor Marina and I was met by the kindest, gentlest man you'd hope to meet. On Sunday we returned to NY with a feeling of peace and the wonderful Gatsby made it possible, Thank you!

Great Gatsby was everything we expected and more. The house was spectacular and the view/location outstanding. We were in Chatham for a family wedding. The house was perfect for guests and we even had a clambake one evening. The owners were awesome and they guided us through the entire re natal experience. They even had a lovely welcome gift. They have a caretaker available 24 hours and he was responsive to our every need. Fantastic home and superb wedding.
