Pleasant Forest Shores cottages #Apt : So. Chatham
Description from the owner
Yes, the price is low but that's why so many customers have come for decades!
So wanting for a nice clean quiet apartment unit close to Nantucket Sound beaches? And one that you can afford on a tight budget with some money left for gas & dining?
Well, then...Pleasant Forest Shores just may be the place for YOU!
Here's a summary of this unit (the smallest of six in the colony):
The "Apt" (Gotland) = One bedroom efficiency unit, with two twin beds, combined living/kitchen area, and half-bath. The very private outside shower (near back door) has both hot & cold water. It is the lower half of the owner's cottage.
Capacity: Two people. Minimum stay: 5 nights
Total size: 464 sq ft. Has NO porch but a single hammock and owner's picnic table are available for use.
Stay once...you'll want to return for decades as some of our customers have done before! Here are the reasons why:
The cottages are located on a quiet street in a well maintained natural scrub pine and oak setting of about 2 acres with less than 5 min walk to two town beaches...
They are generously spaced for privacy with average of 50 feet between units and average 30 feet from driveway...
Units are very spacious compared to other colonies in the area...
The cottages are unique in the style and quality of construction...based on Swedish "Stuga" design...my father (who built them) was a professional cabinet maker so woodworking details are superb...
They are furnished in the style of the 1950-60's but many units have had some/all new bedding and/or refrigerators and/or carpets installed since 2002...
They are kept in very clean condition...thanks to the non-smoking tenants who respect the work of my parents...and is part of reason for the low rates...and I attempt to completely check all aspects at turnover time...
But most of all, due to unique pricing structure, it's very affordable! Not like other high-priced low-quality ones! My mother believed in making it possible for everyone to enjoy a vacation, and I am trying to continue the tradition.
Discounts are given for additional weeks, varying from $5-$25 depending on unit and week number. Since a changeover is skipped, you get a break on rate!
Other important details:
All weekly rentals are from Friday at 4:30 p.m. to Friday at 10:30 a.m.
To keep cottages and grounds in better shape: NO pets and NO smoking!
These cottages are from the 1950's so there are NO telephones, TV, or microwaves...you won't miss them!
Things to know:
There are no TV's, and no cable available but you can bring one to watch DVD's.
You bring your own linens (sheets, towels, etc)...Blankets and pillows are provided...but many folks bring their favorite pillow.
The Apartment has an electric space heater.
Since these units do NOT have A/C, bring a fan if you think the breeze won't be enough to stay cool.
Kitchens have gas stoves, refrigerators, cookware, dishes and utensils so just bring the food and drink!
Access to owner's phone is available to make emergency/calling card/local calls if your cell phone fails or you don't have one.
Owner's high-speed Net may be accessed via wi-fi upon request.
All units have vacuums, broom, mops, brushes, etc...If you MUST have "brand-X cleaner", bring or buy it.
If you want to place to relax, stay here...If you want a place to party wildly, please look elsewhere, ok?
IMPORTANT: Bookings for 2015 began in March when the many existing customers (85%+ repeat rate) were contacted BUT you can inquire NOW and make a guest reservation if space is still available Thanks for your understanding!
If my lower response rate concerns you, it's low because when I'm not doing the bookings in my off-season, I am not quite as prompt to reply - Now that I AM doing schedule for 2015, I WILL reply much sooner, ok?...Read more
