About Tom McDonald
The McDonald family welcomes you to our family reunion home, Blue Skye. The Clan MacDonald has its roots on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, hence the name. We have 4 children ranging in age from 26 to 47, 3 of them married, and we have 6 granddaughters. We are not members of Planned Parenthood but probably should have been. All of our children live in New England, and we frequently travel out from Ohio and use Blue Skye as a gathering place for the families. Barb and I usually stay in this cottage in both the summer and winter when we have the children and their families here for a get-together. We love the quiet!! Tom is a retired general contractor. His extra time includes tennis, bagpiping, piano, boating, and golf. Barbara is a residential architect, specializing in home additions and remodeling. She also enjoys working with various service organizations, antique collecting, gardening, and reading.
Tom McDonald purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Tom McDonald chose West Chatham
We rented the one bedroom cottage for several years, and when we outgrew the accommodations (the main house and two bedroom we not available), we rented other homes in the area. In 1996, when we found that our friends were selling this property, we took a giant leap into the unknown. It's a wonderful place for grandchildren, and we're thrilled that our children and grandchildren love to come and visit us in Chatham.
What makes this Cottage unique
This 2 bedroom house is uniquely situated 100 feet back from the sidewalk with an expansive lawn and privacy from neighboring multi-million dollar homes. The interior has painted pine paneled wainscoting throughout, and it is a home that is neat, clean, and easy to maintain. Children have plenty of room to run and play, and parents can always find a quiet place to get away from the activity. There are gardens, both annual and perennial, and the blooming hydrangeas make the property magnificent in the summer. The beach is accessed by a wide sidewalk, and it is only 300 yards away. Go down many times during the day! It's only a 2 minute walk.
Large private yard for playing.
Minimum age of primary renter:30

Loved our stay!
Loved our stay at Blue Skye cottage! This was the second time we stayed there. It was so comfortable and close to the beach! Just a short walk away! The cottage was so clean and had everything you would need. And lots of closet and drawer space too! We especially enjoyed eating lunch at the picnic table. And being able to use the beach umbrella was helpful. Owners were awesome! Can't wait to go again next year!!
