With sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Monomoy Islands, Morris Island is the place where nature and luxury meet in Chatham. Found on Chatham’s south side, Morris Island includes the waterfront neighborhoods of Quitnesset and Stage Island, two of the area’s most prestigious local communities.

It’s not uncommon to find homes topping $1 million on Morris Island, although one of the priciest homes in the area just sold for more the $14 million. The six-bedroom estate enjoys a full two-acres of private property, bordering the nearby Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge.

Other homes in the area also provide easy access to the trails of the refuge, found right next door to the Quitnesset community. You’ll find some of the best views on Cape Cod from the top of the Morris Island Trail. The refuge is also a great place for spotting wildlife, surf fishing and exploring the area’s unique and diverse ecosystems.  

Quitnesset also offers up the enjoyment of direct deep-water boating access to Nantucket Sound. In addition, there’s a private beach and many homes here allow for the upscale privacy of large, wooded lots.

The homes of Stage Island, meanwhile, offer a waterfront location that’s prime for boating, kayaking and fishing. With the advantage of private boat docks, the homes of this enclave generally allow for direct saltwater frontage. Just as stunning as many of the homes are, so are the surroundings, with the likelihood of stunning views made possible from the privacy of your own home on Morris Island.

Surrounded by both Stage Harbor and Chatham Harbor, Morris Island offers an appealing waterfront location for luxury living, complimented by a more natural environment. When it comes to upscale living on Cape Cod, you cannot go wrong with the natural beauty and added luxuries of a Morris Island lifestyle.
