Chatham Village - Lovely 2 BR Apartment in Antique Home

Historic 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.

The Gifford Buck apartment--the largest of the four apartments--is a comfortable first-floor, 5-room, 2 bedroom, 2 bath gem. Airy and light, the large living room with working fireplace and flat-screen TV occupies the center of the house. The dining room seats 8 and connects to a charming full-sized kitchen with a small breakfast table--or eat and relax on the quiet back porch or side yard with picnic tables and area seating. Two air conditioned bedrooms--one with a queen-sized bed and one with two twins--and two full baths make this apartment perfect for a family. One of the bathrooms also includes a washing machine and dryer. The charm of the apartment is further enhanced by the warm glow of beautifully refinished, wide pine, antique floors and wainscoting. Wi-fi is available throughout the house.

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 Gifford-Buck apartment at Ship’s Light is rented for minimum 7-night stays during the summer and and for minimum 2-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. Contact the owner for details.

Air-conditioned accommodations at this apartment offer fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils.

Historic Cape Code
Great historic property; stayed in the Gifford-Buck house. Two bedroom two bath decorated for the time period; clean and quaint. Only 1 block from Main Street Chatham. Great location. Some confusion on check in, contacted owners and they responded quickly to correct. This was our first trip to the area and we can't wait to come back again. Would book this property again.

Charming Historic Home
My family stayed with me at the Gifford Buck apt. The house was built in 1928. It’s charming and an ideal location Di or exploring Chatham. The apartment is large, 2 bathrooms, washing and dryer, compfy beds, beautiful decor, with plenty of books to read. The porch is perfect for drinking your morning coffee. Short walk to Oyster pond, windmill, and downtown restaurants and shops. I highly recommend and would love to come back.

Wedding Weekend
We stayed at Ship's Light over a long weekend to attend a family wedding. It was the perfect place for us -- very comfortable with lots of space to spread out. And our teenage gave the WiFi two thumbs up!

Chatham summer
This rental is just what we needed for our family. Love that we didn't have to bring our linens and towels. Made it a bit more like a hotel. We would rent here again if headed to Chatham!
