Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Ship’s Light has looked down Cross Street to Chatham Village Center for more than 180 years. Built and occupied by some of Chatham’s most eminent residents since 1825, it was converted to four housekeeping apartments for summer visitors circa 1945. Lovingly restored by long-time current owners, this gracious antique home offers modern comfort and convenience with the character and charm of a bygone era.

Named for my grandmother, the “Lena Coleman” apartment is a three-room, one bedroom, newly-renovated gem. Airy and light, the eat-in kitchen boasts a bay window, with a round oak table and chairs and stained glass chandelier; the inviting living room has built in cabinets and a cozy window seat, two comfortable chairs and a flat screen TV. Wi-Fi is available throughout the house. Perfect for a couple, the bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and a natural bead-board ceiling with exposed beams. The bath is beautifully tiled with a marble sink and sky light. Enjoy your morning coffee on the private roof deck with your loved one or watch the sunset while sipping a glass of wine. The charm of the apartment is further enhanced by the warm glow of beautifully refinished, hand-laid, wide pine, antique floors. It's also very cozy in the off season as well, with wonderful radiant heat.

Centrally located within a short walking distance of excellent Chatham dining, shopping and band concerts, the house is three blocks from the town salt water beach on Oyster Pond, and one mile from Coast Guard Beach, a great stretch of Atlantic Ocean and dunes. Many individuals, couples and extended families consider Ship’s Light their vacation home. We invite you to join them in making your vacation something special.

The Lena Coleman apartment at Ship’s Light is available for stays of 3+ nights during the summer and shoulder seasons and stays of 2+ nights during the off-season. Other units with unique features are also available and the whole house can be rented as a 5-to-6 bedroom home for family gatherings.

About Allison Coleman

My family has owned and loved Ship's Light since the mid-1970s. In the early 1990s, my partner and I renovated the Lena Coleman apartment and have spent many weeks and weekends fixing it up and finally after a few years, relaxing in it! It has been a labor of love to work on this lovely house over the decades and it evokes in me strong childhood memories of my grandmother. She looked forward to the summers when her long-time renters would return to visit, bringing with them stories of their winter months and great friendships built over many years.

In 2010 we bought another house in Chatham and are busy fixing it up. Though we can hardly bear to rent out our beautiful apartment, we do take great pleasure in knowing that others will get to build their memories in our dear Ship's Light.

What makes this apartment unique

Located on a quiet street just off Main Street, Ship's Light is perfectly located and convenient to everything. You can walk downtown to shop in Chatham's great stores, enjoy a meal at a great restaurant, get ice cream and attend Friday night Band Concerts; it’s a short walk to the public library and Methodist, Episcopal and Congregational churches; other churches are also nearby. Chase Park and the grist mill are right around the corner; Oyster Pond (a nice swimming beach) is a short 1/4 mile stroll; the Atlantic Ocean is about 1 mile away. Visitors love to sit and read on the porches and decks overlooking Cross Street and Shattuck Place; from these private perches you can put your feet up and watch the world go by.

Lovely stay in Chatham. Very nice apartment and good location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay in Chatham. Our apartment was perfect for the two of us. Very well equipped and the bed was especially comfortable. Easy walk to the village shops and restaurants and located in a nice neighborhood for walking and biking. Very nice accommodations and I would definitely stay here again.

Great stay - great space

  • 5 of 5

Space was great, comfortable, etc. Very warm and cozy.

Arrival was a bit shaky, no contact with owner. My fault - make sure to print your detailed arrival instructions.

Our Second Home

  • 5 of 5

When we first entered, the smell of fresh herbs caught my attention. We loved this place and hope to return someday! It has everything you need for your stay and the little porch was such a plus when weather allowed us to use it. We wished we had more time there but we know we will be back again. Kim And Richard R

wonderful, charming, perfectly located home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Lena Coleman apartment in Ship's Light! We could walk to everything Chatham has to offer, just two quiet blocks away from the main shopping/dining strip, and a 15-20 minute walk to Chatham lighthouse beach with its sandbar seals or to the fishing pier. The house showed so many thoughtful touches, from the string of white lights that allowed soft lighting in the bedroom to the custom cushions on the window seat. The cozy eat-in kitchen had everything we needed, and personally I loved the immaculate antique sink. We enjoyed waking up to rain pattering on our slanted ceilings one morning, and on a sunnier day having a glass of wine on the deck off the bedroom. We also appreciated the access to laundry in the garage. Thank you to the owners for creating such a wonderful space!

Amazing Place - Served Every Purpose Needed!

  • 5 of 5

I loved the property! The apartment was cute and just perfect for me. I was looking for a cozy place, that would allow me to do some business planning, and that's exactly what I got! Felt incredibly safe, since I was traveling solo. Also, walking distance to town for breakfast and dinner, and driving distance to some awesome beaches. I really loved my stay! Thank You!!
