Chatham Bars Inn

An iconic beach getaway on Cape Cod
Cape Cod doesn't get more iconic than 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 has seven meeting rooms equipped with state-of-the-art built-in screens, LCD projectors and video and streaming conferencing capabilities, multiple event venues and private dining facilities — many with breathtaking ocean views.

Chatham Bars Inn makes it a breeze to enjoy the best of Cape Cod, offering fishing charters and sunset sails and complimentary Lexus shuttle 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 available year-round.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Chatham Bars Inn is decorated in a graceful seaside design style that exudes history and charm. The Inn has been around since 1914 and has been restored to showcase its original stateliness.
  • The main building is outfitted in dark wood, hardwood floors and elegant chandeliers. Paintings and handcrafted wooden models all depicting nautical themes that pay homage to Cape Cod’s maritime history line the walls.
  • The luxury hotel operates five restaurants to match every taste and mood. Try The Sacred Cod Tavern for a bowl of clam chowder or relax in The South Lounge with afternoon tea, which is served daily.
  • During the summer season, enjoy a luncheon, beach party or full-scale clambake at the waterfront Beach House Grill, or outdoor cocktails and a light lunch at Veranda.
  • Each morning, STARS restaurant serves up an elegant breakfast with inventive omelets prepared to order; by night, you’ll be treated to a chandelier-lit meal featuring classic New England dishes with a modern bent.
Things to Know
  • The hotel’s fleet of boats provides opportunities for exciting water activities. Climb aboard for whale watching, seal and evening champagne cruises, or even a ride to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket Island.
