Having wanted to stay at CBI for about oh, a decade, we booked a suite for the Labor Day weekend as our baby's first vacation (we live close enough that we envisioned making CBI an annual family affair). The location is really optimal, right on the water, with a private beach, and a 10-min pleasant walk into town on a... More

Having arrived from the UK via NYC and Newport, we were looking forward to a real treat here. Our room for our five nights initially overlooked the golf course, with no balcony. Perfectly good but ordinary given our expectations. So we expressed our disappointment to Jennifer at the desk and within three hours had a harbour side room overlooking the... More

We spent a week here this summer. Overall, it is a beautiful resort and I believe we'd go back. However, I do have two constructive bits of criticism which may be relevant for the discerning traveler: 1) Check out is at 11am, and check-in is at 4pm. We gave them our flight information ahead of time (we were arriving at... More

This hotel is one of the top two on Cape Cod (the other being Wequassett Resort). Both hotels have exceptional employees which makes the stay a wonderful experience. The main building has outstanding history and character, but the suite we stayed in was a bit outdated (not including the bathrooms) and not in line with the pricing. It smelled stale... More

We have been coming since we were a newly married couple. Now with 3 kids and many pictures on our walls from our Chatham trips, we keep coming back every summer. Hubby and I have even visited in the winter. Beautiful, classic, scenic. Many memories made here, hopefully with more to come.

We have traveled a lot and in these later years we have enjoyed staying at Luxury Hotels like The Chatham Bars Inn and no place I have ever stayed at can top this place . First the location is utterly beautiful and unique . The entrance is in the back of the lobby because the front faces the ocean .The... More

The Chatham Bars Inn is absolutely a beautiful spot with first class everything. We booked at the last minute and still got a lovely room. We stayed in the spa suites. Our kids loved the steam shower. The only glitch was the sauna did not work and even though a few people cam to fix it, the sauna did not... More

Overall, we had a wonderful long anniversary weekend at Chatham Bars Inn Resort and Spa. We stayed in the Spa Suites, which are equipped with a steam shower, amazing jet tub, a fireplace and a sauna. We really enjoyed it. For the most part, the staff were friendly, helpful and made our stay pleasant. We loved taking the free shuttle... More

We stayed at CBI twice this summer (never before). As two older adults not traveling w/children, we were skeptical that our experience would be quiet and relaxing since it's clearly a place heavily geared to kids/families. Pleasantly surprised -- if you navigate the place well, you can have that lovely, quiet, relaxing vacation there. The grounds are gorgeous, the food... More

We booked two rooms in a rather late stage so we had to settle for a cottage not having sea view. We got two rooms in a Seamist Cottage facing the golf course. Beautiful light room with two queensize beds. Lovely decorated, good beds. Lighting was great, welcomed with classical music from a Bose. Small washroom and shower/bath but overall... More
