About Sarah and Andrew Griscom

We are a brother and sister team and have been renting through a real estate agent for over 25 years but now are ready to try renting on our own. The house has been a home for our parents for half of every year but now will be used by family for a few weeks in August as our parents will be in California year-round.

Sarah and Andrew Griscom purchased this house in 1932

Why Sarah and Andrew Griscom chose Cape Cod

The property was purchased by our grandfather in the early 1930s. He was a famous ornithologist, taught at Harvard and would bring his birding associates to Chatham to study the fine biodiversity found in this region. The entire family learned to sail, swim and would congregate with cousins and extended family every summer of every year. The house is filled with an exceptional library with historical accounts and natural history books of the Cape Cod area. The house is large enough to find privacy and quiet but small enough to bring the family together.

What makes this house unique

The best swimming available in Chatham and closest location to the Nantucket Sound "cut through" - the channel that leads from the harbor into Nantucket Sound. Stare off at the historic Stage Harbor lighthouse. Find unbelievable beauty. Views from every bedroom. Are you planning a family reunion and have multiple families with different needs (roudy teens, newborns and new parents, elders)? Our cousins rent their home (4 bedrooms, sleeps 10) and is 300 ft from our home. Also our neighbors rent two of their homes (The Bluff House and the Crows Nest). Plan ahead and set up an in-season or shoulder-season grand reunion and have rule over all of Sears Point. Two of the homes were built by the original Sears sisters (daughters to the famous Willard T. Sears, architect to Isabella Stuart Gardner, Provincetown tower, and many other well-known sites. Our home is also great for housing family members for a local wedding.

Absolutely AWESOME location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay could not have been better! We had 6-8 adults and 7 kids every night and there were still entire rooms we did not even use. The backyard is a huge play area for kids, young and older (and adults) and is right on the water. The views are spectacular and we barely left the property to go into town. Plenty of parking for cars. Would definitely rent again!

Just Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I rented this beautiful home for a week recently. They say it is all about the location and this location was amazing! The home is secluded and on a huge lot directly on Stage Harbor. However, there was so much more to this house than location. Aside from the many bedrooms and bathrooms the updated kitchen is large and fully equipped. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't there. The washer, dryer and second refrigerator were very much appreciated. The original house has lots of character and the add ons - a large sun porch and a family/TV room - offered places to get away from the bustle. The owners were very accommodating and attentive to our needs. My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Sears Point and I highly recommend this very special home.
