About Bill Leahy

We spent some of the most wonderful times of our lives renting houses on the Cape and Islands. Our children ,now 20 (the little guy holding my hand in the picture) and 17, still cherish those summer memories and look forward to making new ones in a place of our own.

A couple of years ago we decided the time was right to find that place. This home was perfect for us and we have put a lot of ourselves into it.

Bill Leahy purchased this house in 2013

Why Bill Leahy chose West Chatham

Chatham is the quintessential New England seaside community. The beauty of the town and environment are unparalleled. Our home provides easy access to beaches, fishing, kayaking, biking, Cape Cod league baseball games and all that the community of Chatham has to offer. Check out our other property at Ridgevale beach (Rental 1013483vb)

What makes this house unique

We have rented a lot of homes in the past and we have made an effort to make our home a place that we would have been excited to visit. The house is filled with natural light making it bright and cheery. The open floor plan with cathedral ceiling makes for an inviting central gathering area while the bedroom layout affords privacy.

We love to cook, so the kitchen is well appointed for guests who wish to prepare their own meals.

Nice accommodations near the town of Chatham

  • 4 of 5

Bill and Patty own the property. They were very responsive to our questions prior to booking the property and were a wealth of information regarding activities to do in the area. When we arrived, we were met by Patty who gave us a tour of the home. They also made themselves accessible by phone during our stay. They provide their house guests with various beach equipment, including beach chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards. The home is neat, clean and comfortable. The one suggestion is that room darkening shades be installed in the bedrooms, because even with the window shades drawn down the bedrooms were very bright in the early morning, which caused everyone to wake up earlier than they would have liked. With the exception of the shades, overall we enjoyed our stay at the house and would recommend it to others.

Lovely stay in West Chatham

  • 5 of 5

Bill & Patti’s Elbow Inn was a very pleasurable place to stay for our week on Cape Cod. My sister, her two adult children, my wife, our adult daughter, and I enjoyed it very much. My sister lives in Newton Mass and my wife and I live in northern California, but we have vacationed in Cape Cod many times and have also used VRBO many times. The Elbow Inn is quite nicely situated near many restaurants as well as Chatham center. My nephew was able to rent a bike for the week without a problem and my daughter enjoyed daily runs & swimming nearby.

Even though it was clearly stated in the VRBO description, we were a bit surprised that bed linens and towels were not provided; however Bill gave us the name of a service that delivered the necessary linens before we arrived and picked them up just as we were checking out.

The four bedrooms were very spacious and the 3 bathrooms were quite adequate. One of the deciding factors in my choosing this place was that they have an outdoor shower. It was certainly a treat for us (the weather was quite warm & sticky) to be able to shower outside every morning. Cape Cod weather, being what it is, we also appreciated the large air conditioner in the living room, as well as, the air conditioners in each of the four bedrooms.

The only drawback we felt staying here was that the beds in all four rooms were uncomfortable. I would suggest new mattresses in all of the rooms, as well as, replacing the Queen bed in the attached suite with a King or at least a Cal-King for those of us who need a larger bed.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for our group of 6 adults. We loved the 2 master suites arrangement and the room with a queen was small but very nice feeling. We loved all the windows, opened them up and enjoyed the cool Cape Cod air. The light and open feeling in the living space was wonderful. The couch was so comfy and huge and had a lot of space for us to congregate. The beds were comfortable (except I did have complaints about the one twin room with a plastic covering on the mattress. ) I understand though the need if there are kids! The kitchen was stocked adequately, we cooked a couple breakfasts and we used some beach chairs in the basement which came in handy. Over all a Super experience especially if you value 3 Bathrooms! At a reasonable price. The only drawback is the location on a main street and it was a little tricky making a left turn as well as some road noise. We felt it was worth even considering this.

Lovely property, well equipped, perfect for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Elbow Inn - property was exactly as it appeared in the photos and as described in previous reviews. We were a group of 4 - 2 adults and 2 kids (10 and 12) - from the UK and the property was perfect for a relaxing stay on the Cape. Compared to some properties we looked at Elbow Inn had been recently renovated and was well decorated. Having beach chairs and buckets and spades was a bonus and the kitchen was well equipped. We used the outdoor grill a lot and enjoyed chilling out on the deck. Lots of things to do in the area - 5 minutes drive to the store and main street, stunning beaches to visit and lovely walks. We particularly enjoyed a day trip to Nantucket where we did a guided bike tour (Jason at Nantucket Bike Tours - highly recommended), we rented bikes in South Dennis and rode the trail (twice!), ate great food sat outside at the Chatham Inn, walked the beaches (Chatham and Nauset), swam in the ponds (the BEST swimming - Schoolhouse Pond is close by) and went para-sailing (expensive, but a real thrill!).

So plenty to do, but also a great place to kick back and relax. The property does front onto the main road, but it is set back, so you will notice a little traffic noise when outside, but otherwise a great property and a good location on the Cape for activities and visiting different places. We will be back!

We had a great stay at Bill's vacation home in Chatham. It was a a lovely house with a fantastic outside shower - and Bill himself could not have been more helpful or more personable to deal with. We had a toddler with us and Bill provided a Pack n Play (brand new!) and we were all very comfortable. I would strongly recommend Bill and his place.

Great location and for multi generations/families/couples

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time! The house was in a great location with lovely decor. About a 1 mile from Hardings and Ridgevale Beaches. We appreciated the small details like the nightlights, coolers and chairs, and fully equipped kitchen. Plenty of parking and turn around space. The outside shower is beautiful - my kids will have a hard time showering indoors. The house was perfect for multi generations; my husband and young kids vacationed with my parents. The layout of the two suites is unique, one is completely separate from the main house, only access is from outside. BIll, the owner is responsible and wants to do the best for his guests. Lots of great tips about the area. Close to the Cape Rail Trail. I was on there everyday and would not have walked up the path if he hadn't pointed it out. Great place to spend our family vacation!
