Chatham Bars Inn

Cape Cod, New England

The hotel

Greeting guests since 1914, Chatham Bars Inn is a world-famous turn-of-the-century Cape Cod landmark. With public rooms returned to their original grandeur, it’s a fabulous place to enjoy a very comfortable stay, just minutes from the picture-perfect streets of Chatham itself. Overlooking a private stretch of golden beach, we highly recommend upgrading to take advantage of stunning ocean views – watching the waves come gently rolling in across the sand is nothing short of bliss! Also highly recommended is a trip to the spa – very Zen-like in atmosphere, it’s an oasis of peace and calm, complete with an outdoor relaxation pool and Vichy Shower Room. Choose from treatments such as Summer at the Shore and Citrus Sunset, guaranteed to chase your cares away. Whilst adults are at play, children will be having fun too at their very own kids' clubs. Beach Buddies is for younger children and The Clam Diggers is for those slightly older. Both offer an exciting array of activities including swimming lessons, tennis, sailing and themed parties. There’s plenty to do in the immediate area but not to be missed is a trip to Outer Beach, conveniently reached by complimentary shuttle and hailed as one of the most beautiful barrier beaches in the world! There are also lobstering cruises to join or hire a bike and cycle (rentals available nearby) the Cape Cod Rail Trail – 35 miles long, it winds its way through some very charming towns and villages.

Had wanted to come to the Chatham Bars Inn for years, and finally did. Wonderful! Great to come before the summer rush. Mostly quiet, but helpful staff/great accommodations.There was a wedding taking place that weekend so the Sunday morning breakfast was crowded but the crowds thinned out after awhile and it was fine. MacKenzie at the front desk checked us in (and happened to check us out too)-very helpful! We were surprised by an upgrade to a suite..wonderful view over the water-couldn't be better! The windows/balcony gave a overlook to great sunrises..so relaxing! Room/living room had all we needed-nice bathroom also. Refrigerator was useful. Staff at breakfast (TracyAnn/Carlton) were friendly and attentive--buffet was plentiful and refilled as needed. Kathryn at the gift shop was very accommodating as I selected several items. Would definitely go back... Read less

My wife and I stayed at the Inn a few weeks ago for a long weekend. It was our first trip to the Cape and everything that's been said here was spot on! We couldn't have asked for a friendlier, cleaner, more relaxing time than our time in one of the king suites. I don't remember the gentleman's name at the desk when we checked in but it was ~1:00am… Read more

We couldn't have asked for a friendlier, cleaner, more relaxing time than our time in one of the king suites. I don't remember the gentleman's name at the desk when we checked in but it was ~1:00am after a long flight and drive from Logan....he was personable, friendly and patiently answered every question we had with a smile. That's customer service worth writing about! We can't wait to make a return visit next spring. Read less

Spent two nights last weekend at the Chatham Bars Inn. So quaint and peaceful with an awesome staff. Food was great and rooms were spacious and clean. If you can get to the spa I'd highly recommend it. Worth every penny :) Can't wait to go back! Thanks Chatham Bars Inn for a wonderful stay!

World class accommodations, service, spectacular setting and breathtaking Cape views! Off season visit uncrowded and quiet. Short walk or drive to shops and restaurants, golf right there, pool, ocean, no better place to stay on The Cape if not In all of New England! They always go the extra mile!

I can't say enough good things about Chatham Bars Inn and our stay there. We both needed a getaway weekend from our busy lives at the end of March, and we found it there. The property itself is beautiful. Lots of choices where to stay - the main inn, the beach cottages, or the spa suites. Our accommodations were superior. We had an ocean view 2-room suite with fireplace, balcony overlooking the ocean, soaking tub, and a multi-spout shower. It was very clean, well appointed, and comfortable. Everyone who worked at CBI could not have been nicer. Hospitality abounds there. We arrived Friday late afternoon and enjoyed drinks at the cozy bar in the Inn, Saturday morning we enjoyed the delicious breakfast buffet (pricey but worth it!). Sunday we stopped by the spa and our blood pressure precipitously dropped! Everything about CBI is top shelf! Read less
