Chatham Village - Adorable studio apartment in antique home

Adults-only apartments in Chatham
Ship’s Light has looked down Cross Street to Chatham Village Center for more than 180 years. Built and occupied by some of Chatham’s most eminent residents since 1825, it was converted to four housekeeping apartments for summer visitors circa 1945. Lovingly restored by long-time current owners, this gracious antique home offers modern comfort and convenience with the character and charm of a bygone era.

Named for the original owner and builder of Ship's Light, the Prince Harding apartment is a one-room studio, with a kitchenette, bath with shower and lovely front porch. Airy and light, this apartment has been updated in 2017. The main room includes a queen-sized, four-poster bed, dining table & chairs, comfortable seating area and flat screen TV with cable. Wireless internet service is available throughout the house. Perfect for a couple, the kitchenette has an apartment-sized range, microwave and refrigerator with freezer. Enjoy your morning coffee on the private front porch with your loved one or watch the sunset while sipping a glass of wine. The charm of the apartment is further enhanced by the warm glow of beautifully refinished, wide pine, antique floors.

Centrally located within a short walking distance of excellent Chatham dining, shopping, movies and band concerts, the house is three blocks from the town salt water beach on Oyster Pond, and one mile from Coast Guard Beach, a great stretch of Atlantic Ocean and dunes. Many individuals, couples and extended families consider Ship’s Light their vacation home. We invite you to join them in making your vacation something special.

The Prince Harding apartment at Ship’s Light is rented for minimum 3 night stays during the summer and for minimum two night stays during the shoulder and off-seasons. Other units with unique features are also available and the whole house can be rented as a 5-to-6 bedroom home for family gatherings.

Property was listed as available, but….
The property was listed as available off season, VRBO sent the standard emails, but when we arrived to begin our stay, the property was locked. We were not able to reach the managers, so had to scramble to find lodging. VRBO was able to get us a full refund. Reviews of this property during high season were positive, but would not recommend trying to rent odd season.

Location Location Location
Beautiful 19th century home located just one block from downtown, an easy walk to restaurants and shopping. Perfect for two people. Privacy low as people in the adjacent unit could be heard through door/wall. Recommended that our family put on their suggestion list for visitors.

Family event
A lovely convenient location within walking distance to town. Cozy and inviting. Has all the conveniences for our short stay.

5/5 Excellent

great place!
really great well maintained rental! as a solo traveler it was all I needed. great hosts. I'd probably recommend booking something slightly larger if you have a week long stay, but for a long weekend it's perfect for the price.

Disappointed/Property needs updating
Read reviews, mostly positive. Not for me. Needs major updating, even the ink on pamphlet's was faded. I walked into the small kitchen and bathroom area, and it had a peculiar smell, like old fruit. It was such penetrating smell I realized I could not stay there. It made me feel very uncomfortable.I checked the sheets on the bed. Washed too many times. It was my vacation and I knew it would not seem like a vacation if I spent my time in this accommodation. I arrived at 4:30 and left around 5:30pm. What was off putting too-- was in their literature to ask if one has time to wash the towels in the laundry in the garage before they left. Not my cup of tea. Fortunately, found a better and less expensive accommodation down the road, with access to a beach.
