I adored everything about this modest charmer from the no-fuss neat-as-a-pin room, to the old timey ice house stocked with brochures, games, and books, to the lawn chairs ready to enjoy the beach view or night sky. The office staff is friendly and there were chocolates from Chatham Candy Manor on each bed pillow upon arrival. Each room has the feel of a stand-alone cottage thanks to a screen door and clothesline access.
The location absolutely cannot be beat! Nauset Beach is just down the hill and through a path lined with wildflowers. Just slide on your flip-flops and head to and from the beach!
However, as I knew when I booked the room, there is no air conditioning. I thought I would be fine with this thinking the sea breeze and a fan or two would do the trick. At night our room was either damp and humid or warm. I wrestled constantly between location vs. comfort. My family and I didn't intend on spending much time inside our room but we often fled as early as possible to be in cooler surroundings.
Another pro or con is no WIFI or room telephones, making this a truly unplugged getaway.There is a mini-fridge and TV.
Word on the street is that AC may be on the way. If that happens this place would be perfect to me.More
