Chatham Bars Inn

Call 01242 547 717 to speak to a specialist Enquire

Why we like it

  • Located at the 'elbow' of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, the Inn opened in 1914
  • We recommend one of the deluxe or premier cottages, with their own porches. Most have ocean views
  • The brand new spa offers countless different treatments. Private cabanas around the pool offer a discreet place for a relaxing massage
  • The resort is easily accessible from Boston by car and provides easy access to the rest of the cape

A&K Top Tip

We recommend the Inn's own 'New England Clam-bake' cooked with fresh ingredients from the surrounding bay.
