Chatham Village Vacation Properties is a small, family owned vacation rental business founded by Edward & Kathleen Skopas. They have vacationed in Chatham for over 30 years and have always dreamed of owning their own property in this quaint and historic town. In 2012 they purchased their first property and over the ensuing years have acquired several other historic homes in Chatham.

They have been highly selective and intentional in their purchase and renovation of these properties and have worked tirelessly to restore and renovate these vacation homes while retaining all their vintage charm and historic significance. Their vacation properties are dedicated to the hospitality business they have built and do not operate as a second home to them or their family. These properties are not encumbered with personal items of the owner but instead, they are decorated, furnished and supplied with their guests needs in mind.

All of their properties share several common attributes:

• Exceptional locations within a short walk to downtown Chatham and the many shops and restaurants on Main Street
• Short walking distances to the beaches on Chatham Harbor and the Atlantic shoreline or Oyster Pond
• Historically significant architecture reflecting the classic style of traditional Chatham homes and cottages that Cape Cod is famous for
• Exude unique and distinctive character without sacrificing modern amenities yet still incorporating many of their original rich vintage features
• Extensively renovated, decorated and furnished in a warm and inviting coastal theme to ensure a comfortable and memorable guest experience
• Immaculately maintained, professionally landscaped and well supplied so that each property feels like your home away from home

We encourage you to read the reviews, talk to the owners and book your next getaway with them. You will make new friends and soon feel like you and your family have your own second home on the cape!

Roomy and private outdoor cedar shower.
