About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Featured on House Hunters International!

Chatterbox is located in the heart of Dunmore Town. Built in the late 1800's by the island's first contractor, it was fully renovated in 2012, making it a historic house with modern amenities. It is a three bedroom (two bedrooms with queen size beds, one bedroom with two double beds), two bath home with wood floors, comfortable furniture, a cook's kitchen and lots of charm. A second floor patio and widow's walk offer stunning sunset views. A covered terrace on the first floor for entertaining or just relaxing as well as a porch swing on the front patio to enjoy the island breeze.

Literally steps away from the grocery store, bakery and deli, nothing is out of reach. The pink sand beach is a short walk away and golf carts are available for hire for exploring the island. Bone fishing, deep sea fishing, SCUBA diving and snorkeling are all easily accessible services! The services of a housekeeper are included every day except Sundays and holidays.

Wi-fi, cable tv, whole home stereo system, a safe, security cameras and free long distance.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Location was perfect. The cottage is a short walk from the ferry and Trish provided lots of guidance on dining and activities. Get coffee at the coffee roasters down the street and rent a boat from Duke.”

Perfect location, picturesque home

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at the beautiful Chatterbox. Steps from everything in town, yet quiet and cozy feel to the perfectly designed island space.

Mother Daughter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a charming place to stay for our group of three! Loved staying in Chatterbox for 5 days. It's centrally located... we even walked from the water taxi drop off... so it's close to everything. Tastefully decorated and so comfortable!

Trish kindly sent us a list of "to-do's", which was spot on. We had a caterer in for one evening which was perfection and they found everything they needed in the kitchen.

Will definitely be returning!!!

Amazing Island, FABULOUS house!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time on Harbour Island staying at the Chatterbox! The house is PERFECTLY located for everything you have in mind - boating from the main dock, any of the beaches are a short golf cart ride away, shopping (GREAT BOUTIQUE right across the street and groceries steps away), and restaurants (food on island is DIVINE). The house has everything you need and is SO amazing. The decks, the decor, I could go on and on! We were SO sad to leave and will 100% be back! Don't hesitate to book it- Harbour Island is worth every penny. Trish was more than responsive and very helpful navigating the island as it was our first visit.

Always have a great time at Chatterbox.

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd year back to Chatterbox, we always have a great time. The house is centrally located to everything, grocery store, deli, liquor store right across the street, Arthur’s bakery is just up the street, which is very convenient. The owner is very helpful with all the details. The house is very well appointed, the bedding, linens and Towels are all high quality. The kitchen is very well appointed to cook and prepare meals. We love the front porch, just relaxing with coffee in the morning. The back patio and roof deck are perfect for enjoying the evenings. We hope to be back next year.

This is our third stay at chatterbox..the best!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve been coming to Harbour Island for many years and chatterbox is a favorite. Housekeeper Neka (and Clint) took great care of 6 of us and owner Trish couldn’t be nicer to work with.
