Area Information
The "Ides of Marsh" home sits on a private one-way circle located off Cockle Cove Road within 1/2 mile of Cockle Cove Beach. The cottage is shielded from its neighboring houses by the salt marsh, and a wooded hill, which surrounds the house on two sides. Cockle Cove Road is an easy-to-find main road running off Route 28 in South Chatham, several hundred feet from the "Old Schoolhouse" ice cream parlor.

We have rented this cottage multiple time. It is on a quiet street with a veiw of the salt marsh; a short walk from the beach. We love to watch the birds and dragon flies and relax.

Lovely quiet cottage overlooking a beautiful salt marsh on a dead end road. Comfortable beds, big screened in porch. Great location near Chatham center. Nice clean beach at end of the road. Would definitely stay here again

Great Cape Fix

July 6, 2012

Spent a week in Chatham. Quiet, relaxing, near beach. The house was perfect. With lots of cable channels and WiFi there was lots to do after dark. Very close to the Rail Trail and village shopping, which is some of the finest on the Cape. I may go back next year for 2 weeks!

We thorougly enjoyed this home. We have been renting in the area for 8+ years and this is by far one of the best cottages we have rented. The sunroom is such a relaxing place to enjoy the marsh and environment. The bedrooms are very comfortable with ample storage space. The kitchen was fully equipped with utensils, dishes and pots and pans. The kitchen also has a dishwasher, washer and dryer. There is a very nice and spacious yard, with bunnies that come to visit daily. This home was very easy to maintain and would definitely rent again.
