Rental Department Frequently Asked Questions

Cleaning is included in the lease agreement. Every lease and home has a mandatory cleaning. Each property is cleaned between tenants.

Tenants pick up keys and a map to the rental property at our office at 20 Heritage Lane. Directions to our office can be found here. Please look for the Pine Acres Rentals sign in front of our building.

There will be a packet with your name in the SMALL SHED NEXT TO OUR FRONT DOOR. It contains keys and a map for your rental property.

The telephone number can be found on your rental contract. If it is not there, just call us and we can get it for you. Also, please be prepared to use calling cards when making long distance (and local long distance) calls.

If linens and towels are not supplied at your rental; as is the case with many of our homes... we recommend that you coordinate linen and towel rental with out in-house rental concierge at Chatham Concierge.  Kristen Deem, the owner operator, is a pleasure to work with and offers many other services for your vacation from bed making, to provisioning, to cribs and baby equipment.  Chatham Concierge can be reached on the web at  Kristen can also be reached by phone: 508-237-7659.

We encourage our tenants to replace what you use during your stay.  It is a great courtesy to the tenant following your stay to arrive with an initial supply of paper towels, toilet paper, laundry soap, and dishwasher detergent.

However, tenants are to provide their own paper products and soaps.  But please be mindful of the tenant to follow... it could be you.

Check out is at 10:00 A.M. Tenants must empty the refrigerator, wash and put away all dishes, put out the trash and bring their keys to our office by 10:30. The tenant’s legal rights to use the property end promptly at 10:00. This includes being in the driveway or the yard. It is the tenants responsibility to make sure all pots, pans, dishes, glassware and silverware are put away clean.

Chatham & Harwich do not offer municipal trash services.  Each homeowner contracts with a private rubbish company for weekly pickups.  Therefore, each rental home is different.  Please follow posted instructions for trash/recycling in your rental.  If your rental provides recycling in the posted instructions please follow accordingly.  If your rental does not recycle... all bottles, cans, cardboard, and plastics can go into trash barrels and should not be kept separate.  If you wish to do so, you may voluntarily drop off recyclables at the Chatham Transfer Station at no charge.
