Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

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 my grandmother, the “Lena Coleman” apartment is a three-room, one bedroom, newly-renovated gem. Airy and light, the eat-in kitchen boasts a bay window, with a round oak table and chairs and stained glass chandelier; the inviting living room has built in cabinets and a cozy window seat, two comfortable chairs and a flat screen TV. Wi-Fi is available throughout the house. Perfect for a couple, the bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and a natural bead-board ceiling with exposed beams. The bath is beautifully tiled with a marble sink and sky light. Enjoy your morning coffee on the private roof deck 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, hand-laid, wide pine, antique floors. It's also very cozy in the off season as well, with wonderful radiant heat.

Centrally located within a short walking distance of excellent Chatham dining, shopping 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 Lena Coleman apartment at Ship’s Light is available for stays of 3+ nights during the summer and shoulder seasons and stays of 2+ nights during the off-season. 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.

About Allison Coleman

My family has owned and loved Ship's Light since the mid-1970s. In the early 1990s, my partner and I renovated the Lena Coleman apartment and have spent many weeks and weekends fixing it up and finally after a few years, relaxing in it! It has been a labor of love to work on this lovely house over the decades and it evokes in me strong childhood memories of my grandmother. She looked forward to the summers when her long-time renters would return to visit, bringing with them stories of their winter months and great friendships built over many years.

In 2010 we bought another house in Chatham and are busy fixing it up. Though we can hardly bear to rent out our beautiful apartment, we do take great pleasure in knowing that others will get to build their memories in our dear Ship's Light.

What makes this apartment unique

Located on a quiet street just off Main Street, Ship's Light is perfectly located and convenient to everything. You can walk downtown to shop in Chatham's great stores, enjoy a meal at a great restaurant, get ice cream and attend Friday night Band Concerts; it’s a short walk to the public library and Methodist, Episcopal and Congregational churches; other churches are also nearby. Chase Park and the grist mill are right around the corner; Oyster Pond (a nice swimming beach) is a short 1/4 mile stroll; the Atlantic Ocean is about 1 mile away. Visitors love to sit and read on the porches and decks overlooking Cross Street and Shattuck Place; from these private perches you can put your feet up and watch the world go by.

wonderful cozy unit near beach and downtown

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed here, and we loved it. The unit is very homey and cozy, and has an old "vintage" feel while also being well maintained and modern in the right ways. We feel really at home here. It's a great location, a couple of blocks from downtown Chatham, and walking distance to the lighthouse and beach. Highly recommend!

The only thing we don't like is there is no door to the bathroom - just a curtain separates the bathroom from the bedroom. Privacy in the bathroom is important! If the owners could add a bathroom door we would love this unit even more.

Would come back!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apt for 2 people. It was clean, neat and had a lot of updates. We love that we can walk back and forth to town, to all our favorite shops and restaurants. It is a great spot.

Perfect 1-bedroom apartment for the 2 of us

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Lena Coleman apartment in Ships Light for 5 nights in September 2017. We had amazing weather - hot and sunny every day, and made good use of the porch/balcony for morning coffee and in the afternoon. The position is very convenient for walking into town and there is an off-street parking space. It is 5 minutes walk from Main Street but really quiet. The apartment is well equipped and clean and the bed is large and comfortable, there is even a washer and dryer in the garage for the use of guests. Lots of space for hanging clothes. As you can tell, we loved it, it was the perfect spot for us to start our 2 week vacation in New England.
