Lori was great and communicative. The place was better than advertised, clean, centrally located and cozy. Would definitely stay again.

This place was perfect! It was very convenient to everything, but set back enough to feel secluded. The house was very comfortable and well stocked with towels, blankets, dishes, etc. A great "home" away from home for the week! Would highly recommend.

Had a wonderful time at this house. Clean, comfortable with everything we needed. Beautiful setting in a wooded area but just a walk into town. Restaurants and drug store right there. Perfect combo for us of privacy and proximity.

I am pleased you enjoyed your time in Chatham. You hit on just the things I love about the house, private yet close proximity to town. Thank you for staying at The Roost.

This is a lovely house and was perfect for 6 adults and an infant! We enjoyed the comfortable and spacious indoor spaces and the outdoor porch swings were a nice bonus. Although we didn't do any cooking, the house has a well-stocked kitchen and a large dining room table. Being able to walk to the Rite Aid for cold drinks was convenient. And the house is just off a main road, but set back off a long driveway for privacy. If we're in the area another time, we'd be happy to stay here again!

This home is clean, comfortable and spacious. Our family of 8 adults and 1 crawling baby had a wonderful weekend together here. The living room had plenty of seating and was easy to child-proof making it a safe space for the baby to play. Having a second living space was perfect for playing games while the baby slept upstairs. We enjoyed the flat outdoor space behind the house and because the house is on a hill, looking out the front windows felt like we were staying in a tree house! The home is within easy walking distance of town with many restaurants and shops. Lori, the owner, responded quickly to our questions and has everything well marked in the home to make the adjustment to staying there easy. We are already looking forward to staying here the next time we are in the area.

If you're looking for a secluded quiet retreat steps away from main street Chatham this is the place to stay. There really isn't anything else like it in town. You can walk to the fair grounds easily, grab breakfast across the street and go shopping on main street with no need for a car. All of this steps away while you can still enjoy the quiet natural surroundings of the house.
