A LOVELY WEEK

14 ADULTS, 2 TODDLERS, AND 2 INFANTS SPENT A LOVELY WEEK AT OUR GREAT GATSBY BEFORE CELEBRATING OUR SON'S MID-AUGUST WEDDING IN CHATHAM. THE HOME AND GROUNDS WERE SPACIOUS AND COMFORTABLE, WITH PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITY TO SPREAD OUT INDIVIDUALLY OR GATHER AND VISIT AS A GROUP. CARVER WAS A VERY OUTGOING AND ACCOMMODATING CARETAKER WHO WAS ALSO A WONDERFUL RESOURCE FOR INFORMATION AND SUPPORT. WE ALL AGREED THAT OUR EXPANSIVE ACCOMMODATIONS HELPED MAKE THE REASON FOR OUR STAY AN EXTRA SPECIAL FAMILY EVENT.

A fabulous week with family

This was our third summer renting a week's stay at the great Gatsby. It truly is a magical place. We use the home as a gathering place for our family who come from near and far. The cousins range in age from 10 to 21 and our Cape week is the highlight of the year. The home is fully equipped and met all of our needs. The yard is fantastic and afforded the children countless opportunities to play every game imaginable. The beach is right down the street. And best of all the caretaker - Carver - is on sight and is always available to meet any needs you may have. We are already looking forward to our stay next year!
