The sounds: waves, seagulls and birds. The smells: salt and sea. The location: a private peninsula flanked by private beaches, shared only with handful of homes. Surrounded by sprawling green lawns, a 200 acre forest and a serene estuary protected by The Nature Conservancy. Exquisite location, an exceptional vacation.
*** NOTE: Available for 7 Night/Weekly Rental Only ***
You can vacation with the masses. Or, you can vacation here. Hatchetts Point. The place to get away from it all.
Our home at Hatchetts Point, surrounded by nature and the sea, away from the crowds, with a private beach a few steps away.
When you turn... off the main road to Hatchetts Point's private road, the only possible entrance to this peninsula, you drive through 200 acres of thick woods, surrounded by green forest all around, you are exiting the 'main land' and entering a private, exquisite place like no other. After a mile or so, through the arch of trees you see light at the end of the road. You emerge out onto The Point: acres of flat green grassy lawns, beaches to the left and to the right, two ponds, a tennis court and a handful of homes on a private protected peninsula. Immediately, you imagine yourself walking the grounds, exploring, bird watching at the ponds or in the estuary, walking for hours on the private crescent shaped beaches, searching for sea glass, swimming to the dock, sunbathing, playing a round of impromptu golf or a tennis with your family. You haven't even reached the house, but you know you made the right choice coming here.
The house, a classic 1940's 2 story wood shingle beach home boasts 6 bedrooms, a playroom and 6 full baths. The wrap around wood deck is perfect for outdoor dining, BBQ's, lounging, watching the sun rise or set. The home is spacious, as is the property around it. The house is big enough for all your friends and family to gather, but has secluded spots to sneak away to for a good book or a quiet cup of tea.

Guests will have access to the private beaches, a dock off the main beach, clay tennis court, a serene estuary which protects many endangered bird species (great for bird watching!). Though these are also shared with a handful of other homes on Hatchetts Point, guests will often find themselves at the beach, walking the grounds or the trails in the woods and playing tennis for hours without seeing anyone else.
Weddings, large parties or gatherings and amplified or live music are not permitted on the point. Pets and smoking are not permitted at the house or property.
Because we do not live on site, the house is professionally managed by a local real estate agent. Additionally, there is a caretaker who lives in a separate home on the property.
The house can be rented in increments of 1 week. Not permitted: smoking, pets, weddings, large parties or gatherings. Hatchetts Point is a quiet retreat perfect for families or groups of friends.Read more
