Chatham Bars Inn was originally developed in 1914, as a semi-private hunting lodge for wealthy Boston vacationers. The hotel quickly earned a reputation as Cape Cod’s most elegant, self-contained tourist destination. Later, the Inn’s appeal was expanded with the addition of an adjacent 9-hole golf course.
Under its present owner, only the third in the past century, Chatham Bars Inn has undergone a $100 million renovation that has left nothing untouched. Old world charm was retained but updated with every modern convenience and amenity.
Since then, the Inn has won numerous awards including the prestigious Forbes Four-Star award. It has become a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, and has been named one of the top resorts in the world by Travel & Leisure Magazine, and the best hotel on Cape Cod by Boston Magazine.
The Cape, as locals lovingly refer to it, resembles the arm of someone flexing their bicep. Comprising 15 towns, this 124-kilometer-long stretch of sand is one of America’s most popular summer destinations thanks to its laid-back beaches, charming ice cream shops and seafood shacks. Iconic U.S. president John F. Kennedy spent his summers here, and today the Kennedy Compound in Hyannis is still used by the family.
Because its peninsula is shaped so irregularly, Cape Cod is studded with lighthouses of all shapes, sizes and colors. Some are viewable only from a ferry tour, but five are open to the public. Highland Light, known as the Cape Cod Lighthouse, is the oldest, built in 1797. At Nauset Lighthouse, go on a full moon tour. Combine a hike with a tour and walk the 3-kilometer path to Race Point Lighthouse.
Historic downtown Chatham is located only steps from Chatham Bars Inn. The quaint, tree-lined Main Street area offers clothing shops, galleries, gifts, old-fashioned candy and ice cream shops, and more.
