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.

Let me say the masseuse was fantastic , along with service ,my issue is ....4th visit this visit I purchased a Travelzoo voucher for 130.00 for a 1 hour massage . I received a confirmation email from the spa stating the massage was 110.00, I absolutely do not have a problem tipping the masseuse accordingly she was great ( Melissa),however I do have an issue the spa manager insisted the cost was 220.00 plus tip even though I had email conf directly from the spa stating cost was 120.00 their mistake but manager did not honor the email confirmation for the 110.00 price, as a business owner the customer is ALWAYS right we should have been honored the email confirmation price directly from the spa confirmation ,Along with the spa managers attitude at check out I was very disappointed.So use caution when using a Travelzoo coupon, also dont forget to request your glass of champagne included with your voucher, it was not offered , we did have to ask.

Had a wonderful dermasound facial at the Spa at CBI. My skin feels so hydrated and smooth. Jill was so knowledgeable! Explaining how first it would extract the impurities and on the second portion pack your skin with goodness, then finishing with an electrical muscle tightening. Highly recommend trying this new facial!

I was looking for a hotel with a Jacuzzi/hot tub. I decided on the Chatham Bars Inn Spa Suite as it had a jacuzzi, steam shower and sauna in the room. It was expensive but, it was for my husband who has a fractured shoulder and, also for his birthday. We stayed on Jan. 4th and were pleased to find the gorgeous Christmas decorations still up. I called the hotel directly to book and spoke with Katelyn who was pleasant and helpful. The price she quoted was WELL below any price on any sites and she arranged for a birthday surprise for my husband. The spa room was beautiful but I do have a couple of comments. It is open floor plan. When I opened the door for someone who was delivering the birthday surprise...she entered quickly without asking--- my husband was just climbing out of the tub---SHE almost got the surprise! Also, I was told that, since we had booked a spa room, we could use the amenities in the Spa which included a hot tub. I was really looking forward to it...only to find that it was OUTSIDE!!! It was January with a 27 degree wind chill temperature. Our room was a good distance from the tub ... not really realistic and a disappointment. All in all, though, it was a WONDERFUL stay at a beautiful hotel with great staff. If you can afford it, I highly encourage you to do so. It must be gorgeous during the summer and they had some wonderful pre-Christmas festivities as well. Read less

The service from start to finish was stellar, the accommodations were immaculate, all dining on the property was great...especially brunch at Stars! We also went to the spa for a couples massage and used the outdoor hot tub prior to our treatment, which was incredibly relaxing. We plan to travel back again next winter for sure! Read less
