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.

spectacular property with tremendous staff and amenities. It gets better with age and a tremendous place to go to escape. Rooms are terrific and the staff goes out of their way especially given the odd times that we live in and how it has impacted hospitality.

A beautiful resort. We had a great time the staff was wonderful from the time we drove up to the time we left. The food is amazing especially the buffet breakfast! We stayed in a cottage by the ocean the room was great but could use new carpet and a fresh coat of paint.

Spent Columbus Day Weekend at the Chatham Bars Inn and had an amazing experience. I would highly recommend this hotel. All the staff we encountered were pleasant and accommodating from our housekeepers, to the pool staff, to the restaurant staff. The grounds are stunning and the views are spectacular. We took the boat over to North Beach Island and it was such an amazing experience. We had the whole island to ourselves! Our kids (7 and 5) absolutely loved it. In fact, we had noticed a old Treasure Map in the lobby and it intrigued my son. He had the idea of taking a photo of the map and I brought some shovels for us on the boat ride so we could dig for buried treasure. We didn't find any silver or gold but the quality time spent with my family was treasure enough. :-) The food was amazing. Pricey no doubt but definitely delicious. I highly recommend the buffet breakfast out on the veranda. It was a little windy but the view and meal was totally worth it. We had dinner at the tavern and the food and atmosphere was great. It was a win/win for me because out table had a view of the bar TV so I could watch the Sox game during dinner. An overall wonderful experience. Read less

Participated in a work conference held at Chatham Bars Inn and was blown away by the service, location (views of the Cape) and the old world charm were out of this world. Our conference also had a farm to table dinner outdoors at the farm which was exceptional. Tried lots of fresh produce appetizers new to me. Highly recommend this facility… Read more

I had a really awesome stay at the Chatham Bars Inn for a two day conference. Great rooms, meeting venue, restaurants, food and general ambiance. The conference used the pool house venue, pool restaurant and the terrace for the meeting venue.
