My daughters were four and seven years old when we first vacationed in Cape Cod in 2010. I'd been looking for a spot for our small family that would become a meaningful getaway and a true family tradition chock-full of warm memories. All of Cape Cod is beautiful and worth visiting, but we wanted a homey, private place where we could also have enjoyable and unique down time. My children much prefer eating at home and we all wanted to stay on the beach (not travel back and forth from where we stayed), both utmost considerations in my search. Chatham Seaside Cottages seemed like a fit. It is. "Our" cottage is so inviting, so comfortable and clean - it feels like our home away from home. The owners are wonderful and much more like hosts than landlords. Any simple requests I've made have been attended to within minutes and with a smile. Their hospitality and warmth add immensely to our stress-free vacation. They even provide kayaks for fun in the inlet. The cottages overlook Nantucket Sound and a beautiful inlet which has become an integral part of our experience in Cape Cod, perfect for nature lovers of all ages. This estuary is loaded with fascinating sea life - we observe and play with tiny sea hermit crabs, snails, clams, muscles, horseshoe crabs, fiddler crabs and more as the tide rises and falls. Nearby there are protected bird nesting areas, and wild bunnies are a constant source of entertainment. Spending time in the inlet and on the beach is wonderful, and so is observing them from the cottage porch. A fantasy realized for me. Air conditioning, a grill and picnic table are amenities with each cottage, as are a laundry line and an outside shower - perfect for washing off sand covered feet before heading inside as well as a rare delight! We are counting down the weeks till our fourth consecutive summer staying in Seadaisy...
