There are 2.6 acres of mostly meadow with 300' of oceanfront dunes, tidal flats, & shore grasses between the sand & the water with a short narrow path. Leave our beach chairs, umbrellas, 'toys', etc. tucked away in our private dunes during your stay and come & go to the ocean directly across from the house (no scheduling, driving, hauling!). The activity list is endless: kayak (e.g. short paddle to 2 islands with isolated beaches!!); canoe; tube; fish; run kites; shell-seek for endless varieties (bring your water shoes!); surf-cast at midnight; swim (all tides, best at high tide); build sandcastles that no one disturbs; sunbathe; clam; late night shore campfires & s'mores; gourmet picnics at the house or at the shore; launch your sailboat from the town landing just north of the property; etc. Or, if you prefer a public beach, 5 are...

Oceanfront:: (CONTINUED)...located 1/2 -1-1/2 mi from the property (including renowned Lighthouse/South Beach). Take great shore walks to world-class Chatham Bars Inn (CBI) for meals, clambakes, cocktails, tennis, etc.; or to a beautiful public beach at Claflin Landing adjacent to CBI (1/2 mi). Shore walk to pick up fish 'n chips or cooked 'n cracked lobster at Chatham Fish Pier Market (1/3 mi). Walk to *Center* of town (less than 1 mi) via sidewalks 2/3 of the way; or walk the shore + a variety of scenic side street options to town.

Terrific Large Property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific house for a large diverse group (we had 18 people at one time) and three generations. We had plenty of room for all of us, and everyone was comfortable - from grandpa to the 9 month old grand baby. The kids loved the yard, the beach and the warm days with brisk nights by the firepit. A wonderful family vacation for all of us!

enormous house perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Our group of twelve stayed for a week and the house was so large we never felt crowded, even though we spent most of the first few days inside due to less-than-ideal weather conditions. The house is more like two separate houses connected by a hallway/bedroom with two twin beds that works as a perfect napping area or, in our case, a bedroom for ten and twelve year old girls. The house is surprisingly soundproof, and we all got plenty of uninterrupted sleep.

The short walk to the beach was one of my favorite parts of the property -- a peaceful piece of land groomed just enough to make you feel like you could have stumbled upon this clearing during a long hike through the woods.

We had a great week and enjoyed kayaking, biking, a dinner at the Chatham Bars Inn, lobster rolls from the Chatham Pier Fish Market, shopping in Chatham Center, visiting Ridgevale Beach (great for families), completing numerous jigsaw puzzles, etc.

Thanks for a memorable vacation!

We Have Adopted This Property!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't ask for more! Here are some of the highlights of our stay: Low tide at our beach, showing the kids how to clam for our dinner. Walks along the shore to the Fish Pier to see the seals and to bring back the freshest lobster and fish n chips. Evening surfcasting and family campfires at our oceanfront under the stars. Endless kayaking, swimming, and boogie-boarding. Walks from our beach to Chatham Bars Inn for cocktails. And, most importantly, a fabulous Cape Cod estate, very classy, with perfect décor, boundless amenities, very clean and welcoming! Everything suited our adventurous family of 13 adults and 6 kids just perfectly!

Amazing House Right Near the Water

  • 5 of 5

This house was just awesome. Ten of us met up (2 couples, 6 singles) and everyone could have their own room. Some properties say 'Sleeps 20' and that means using pull-out couches and squeezing in. This home comfortably fits 20, I honestly think there are beds for closer to 25-30 although you'd be too crowded with the restroom situation. Three restrooms are off bedrooms, two are located more in the common spaces. You will love walking over to the beach, but we honestly spent more time in the very private backyard, back deck area. It is sunny and beautiful, yet surrounded by shade on the perimeters. I can't think of any cons to list for this house.

May Birthdays!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Plenty of rooms & plenty of fun! We really enjoyed this property. Thirteen members of our family gathered to celebrate FOUR May birthdays! Our three generations had plenty of room to spread out. The weather was fine and we enjoyed the beach, the Chatham fish pier, Cape Cod National Seashore and shopping in Chatham. The great Ships in the Shops displays were a nice bonus! The best part was having our own private beach! Three generations had a blast with the kayaks! Hated to leave!

'Shore Acres' is so sprawling it encompasses BOTH sides of a residential road in a prestigious neighborhood. Our estate house, with ocean views & 2.4 acres of totally private backyard, gardens, greenhouse, beautiful landscaping & child-protected pond, is on one side; our 300 ft of estate oceanfront, with 2.6 acres of meadow, sandy dunes, salty air, beach grass, rosa rugosa blooms & breathtaking views, is directly across from the house. It is a leisurely, LEVEL walk for all ages from the house on our private grassy footpath to our expansive oceanfront. No need to pack the car with everything & everyone-you are there! When you do venture forth, Chatham's historic and vibrant downtown, unmatched on Cape Cod, is renowned as a mecca for eclectic shops, award-winning restaurants, galleries, festivals, 5-Star playground, beautiful ocean beaches and famous band concerts!
