Chatham Bars Inn

An iconic beach getaway on Cape Cod
Cape Cod doesn't get more iconic than the Chatham Bars Inn, a luxury resort that combines Old World charm with modern amenities in a serene seaside setting.

A top destination for weddings, family reunions and business conferences, the Inn offers seven meeting rooms equipped with built-in screens, LCD projectors and video conferencing capabilities, multiple function halls and private dining facilities — many with breathtaking ocean views.

The Chatham Bars Inn makes it a breeze to enjoy the best of Cape Cod, offering fishing charters and sunset sails and complimentary chauffeur service. But many guests prefer to simply relax on the sugar-fine sand of the Inn’s private beach, by the pool or in the full-service luxury spa. Families delight in the Inn’s impressive kids’ program from June through September, and the variety of outdoor activities for all ages, offered year-round.
