The main inn has an expansive patio and several comfortable common areas outfitted in a variety of styles. Large Joel Meyerowitz photos of the beach hang in the main hallway, while the opposite wall holds a charming 19th-century map of the area’s ghosts. The inn is also home to a top-notch indoor and outdoor spa that features Balinese-style landscaping and a wide range of treatments.
Bed and Bath
The 271 guestrooms are split between the historic main inn and 26 cottages scattered over 25 oceanfront acres. Deluxe Cottage Rooms and Suites are done in subdued beach-themed tones and feature L’Occitane bath products, Bose Wave radios and flat-screen TVs. Some even have fireplaces, to complete the New England fantasy.
Inn activities include tennis, golf, fishing and guided beach walks. When mealtime comes, there are four restaurants to choose from. The main dining room serves a selection of fresh-caught items, including two-pound lobsters, Wellfleet oysters and perfectly seared scallops. Reserve a table by the window and you might spot seals on the beach. For a more laid-back meal, the inn’s Sacred Cod Tavern has lighter pub fare. If it’s chilly outside, afternoon tea is served in the South Lounge, where you can curl up by the fire with a book or a game from the library.
In the Area
Take the milelong stroll along the waterfront to the Chatham Lighthouse, where you can look for seals lounging in the cove. Then head to the Squire, a pub on Chatham’s Main Street that’s always packed, for a bowl of velvety lobster bisque or a pint and some live music. On weekend mornings the inn’s naturalist leads nature walks and short hikes along the coast. There are also opportunities to bike, boat and fish. The ground seldom freezes on the Cape, so you can book a tee time year-round at the Chatham Seaside Links golf course, which is right next door.
How to Get There
Spent a fabulous three day two night getaway at this beautiful Inn. Grounds, lobby, dining rooms, accomodations, and common areas were clean, neat and well maintained. Staff was wonderful - friendly, knowledgeable, and professional.
Last year I took my family of 11 to the Chatham Bars Inn to celebrate the end of summer. The food, service, and ambience where excellent. This year, I plan to repeat to event. At first, I was stmied due to logistics issues. I finnally got to Sara Choukri,
Guest Services Coordinator at Chatham Bars Inn. She was professional, responsive, engaging, with immediate follow-through. Sara has set the mood to insure another excellent experience.
A great weekend at the CBI resort in Chatham, Mass. Relaxing and rejuvenating.
Great service and great food. This is a fantastic resort in a beautiful setting. The staff is extremely well trained and it shows everywhere and every minute. This is a must do & should be on your bucket list!
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...
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 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.
