Description of the Chatham vacation home rental
OFF SEASON DISCOUNT is $125/night for 2 people, $15/night per additional person. Please see "Rates." (Does not include holidays.)

The ''Chatham Retreat'' is clean, charming, and tastefully decorated. 1/5 mile walk to beautiful beach. You will enjoy this quiet neighborhood and lovely yard with patio. Available for year-round vacation rentals, it has winter water views and a fireplace.

A beautiful, long, secluded beach on Nantucket Sound is a scenic five-minute walk away. Visit 'Heaven's Hill' and enjoy the spectacular water views with 75 acres of conservation land, located a stone's throw from our property. Just a short walk to tennis courts, playground and one of the smallest public libraries in New England.

A wonderful place to create family memories...just one of the many reasons our guests return year after year. Recommended for families up to five or six. And for 'girl friends' off-season get-away (comfortable for up to 4-5). Many couples come in the off-season and we have a reduced rate at that time when it is only 2 people.

The Chatham Retreat is a wonderful combination of 'sand between your toes' Cape Cod, but with up to date amenities...washer/dryer, dishwasher, cable, and bring your laptop in summer for our wireless internet access! Expanded cable in-season! (Limited channels in off-season.) Portable AC in master bedroom.

The Chatham Retreat measures up to its name. The cottage is clean, quaint, centrally located and a short walk to the beach. This was my third trip there and looking forward to going back again next summer. It is beautifully decorated and well maintained. Beds are extremely comfortable. Delightful little neighborhood too! Definitely a must stay

A Peaceful Retreat!

August 30, 2016

My husband and I have been going to Chatham Retreat for many years now! We have stayed in season and off season, but extremely restful and peaceful. You can take your am coffee on a short walk to Forrest Beach, enjoy the beauty of the sun on the water, and then just relax as the sun rises higher , making plans for the day. Some do not know the beauty of Fall on the Cape! It gives us such peace, we are freaky for the day of either exploring, or just relaxing in a lovely home with everything you need to just "be." Off season is also great to explore , not only the beach areas, such as ChathamLight, but to get beautiful different gifts for the holidays! We are going back again in November 2016, and cannot wait!

We have been coming to Chatham Retreat for 15 years! Most of them off season, so incredibly peaceful and serene, to walk to Forrest Beach from the lovely cottage! The cottage is always spotless when we arrive, has everything you need to cook in, and is not far from great restaurants, including pizza, which appeals to both adults and children. In a a very quiet neighborhood, yet close to downtown Chatham, and Chatham light. We will be back again in the Fall, our favorite time to go! There are many places to explore, if that is your favorite thing to do. The thing much appreciated is the owners willingness to answer any questions, promptly and fully. Chatham Retreat surely is a treasure on the Cape!

I've been home for over a week and I'm still feeling relaxed after my stay at Chatham retreat! We were 4 friends from grammar school looking for the perfect spot for a 30th reunion. We wanted something comfortable, inviting and within walking distance to the beach. We hit the trifecta with Chatham Retreat! We walked just a few minutes from the house to Heaven's Hill where we were treated to views I haven't seen since I was in Ireland-just breathtaking! From there we walked just a few more minutes to a beautiful, secluded beach. The perfect spot for us to "catch up". Downtown Chatham is so quaint and close and a perfect way to spend a day wandering in and out of shops and enjoying local fare. We have already booked our next reunion at Chatham and we cannot wait! A big thank you to Maraide Sullivan for being so wonderful and easy to work with!

Owner's reply:

Thank you! We love that our cottage is often reserved for "girlfriend reunions." Glad we can provide a comfortable place for these happy occasions! Look forward to your return!

P Family, PA

We love this house! Perfect vacations 2 years in a row! Love the outdoor shower.
B Family, Massachusetts

(A comment from a family that has come every summer since 2001) Another wonderful vacation at the Chatham Retreat! This place is great for us to enjoy a week away with the comforts of home. Close to the beach, close to town, easy to get to… We spent most of our time on Forest Beach. Our usual journeys took us to watch the fishing boats at the pier, playing at the playgrounds, and shopping for penny candy. Thanks again for sharing your place with us!
L. Family

Our first trip to the “Cape” and we will be back! We loved this South Chatham location, excellent for exploring the whole of Cape Cod.
H Family, Toronto, Canada

We had a great vacation at your cottage. Although due to the weather, it wasn't the vacation we wanted, for me it was the vacation we needed. I managed to read 2 (!!) books... In your description of the cottage and its surroundings, you did not exaggerate in any way: It's as peaceful, beautiful and serenity-inducing (for lack of a better term) as you say. Although in the 3 afternoons when the weather was OK we took the kids to the wide, Coast Guard beaches, they both told me that their favorite was Forest Beach, because the waves were smaller and because you could find both lucky stones and shells. Thank you very much for a much needed serene and relaxing vacation!

This is a nice relaxing, quiet place to "retreat" to, play games and hang out. We loved all of the birds and the fox who came through the yard.

Cape Cod is such a beautiful place, and the Chatham Retreat is, for us, all that its name implies. Our time here was a refreshing retreat from the busy-ness of daily life and an opportunity to draw near to the God who created this stunningly beautiful place...May God bless each guest who passes this way.
M. Family, from TN

We love “South Chatham” especially the Chatham Retreat. A perfect location for the beach and Heaven’s Hill, a bird watcher’s paradise. Quiet and relaxing. The home was comfy and inviting. This was for a special celebration- hope to come again for a future celebration! Thank you! Thank you! What a find!
E Family, Reno, Nevada

We loved the “Chatham Retreat.” Thanks for all the great tips on where to go and what to do. We had a ton of fun! Your cottage is adorable and comfortable and we all want to install outdoor showers in California! Thanks again!

Great location – much more character than downtown, and wonderful to walk to the beach with kids. All very accessible with small children.
D Family, London, England

(Comments from a family who has visited every summer for over 5 years.) The Chatham Retreat is a really great place to bring a family. It's a short walk to Forest Beach (free) so trips back and forth for lunch are easy without packing a big cooler.
BL

I felt immediately comfortable here. The wonderful living room light helped me focused on writing not rambling. It felt like my own secret beach that I shared. Two weeks is never enough but I tried to breathe in enough sea air to pack my cells till I return.
J. D.

It was our first trip to the Cape Cod and we felt so blessed to have chosen the Sullivan’s house in South Chatham as our home base. We love its natural beauty and uncrowded spaces.

You have a beautiful spot – thank you for sharing!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How close are you to the beach?
A: 1/5 mile walk. Even closer to conservation area and awesome views! You can walk up the small hill with your morning coffee and sit on a bench! Peeks of water in winter. If we had a 2nd story we would have year round views.
Q: Are you close to the popular Cape Cod Bike Trail?
A: Yes! Very short ride to access the bike trail. You can bike to downtown Chatham within minutes, or go in other direction and ride by cranberry bogs, fresh water ponds and cross to Cape Cod Bay side of Cape, and continue to National Seashore and Wellfleet! Plenty of opportunities to buy food and drinks along the way.
Q: Do you have an outdoor shower?
A: Yes! It is very popular and has both hot and cold water. It is also fully enclosed for your privacy.
Q: Is the neighborhood good for families?
A: The neighborhood is quiet. It is nice for family walks... especially to the beach, conservation area, tennis courts and basketball hoop, little library, benefit shop and a couple of restaurants. Also quiet for biking and strollers.
Q: Do you have beach chairs and beach toys? Hammock?
A: Yes! We also have a red wagon you can put stuff into and bring to the beach. We have a lovely hammock in the back yard... especially nice for Mom or Dad if someone needs to bring a child home for a nap, while the rest of the family stays at the beach.
Q: Do you rent year round for vacation rentals?
A: Yes! Our house is winterized and guests love to come visit all year long. There are not many Chatham Cape Cod cottages that are open year round. But we are! And we offer great rates! Guests also come for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years!
