Some places are so right that I hesitate to tell anyone else about them. But since I cannot travel every day of the year, I might as well share the good news.
The Chatham Seafarer is about two miles west of Chatham. It is a block from an entrance to the Cape bike path and about 3/4 mile up a side road from a nice beach on Nantucket Sound (significantly warmer water than the Atlantic). That is close enough to walk.
The Seafarer has been tastefully redone and refurnished so that the room felt more like summer hotel than beach motel. Lovely, spacious, uncluttered. It has a heated pool which is perfect when the weather is too chilly for the beach. The owner-manager lives on the premises and is wonderfully helpful and charming.
Off-season there is no problem driving into Chatham town. In high season, you want to choose your times to avoid traffic jams. Never fear -- you only need to go to Chatham for the seals. There are plenty of places to eat in that part of the Cape without struggling with town traffic. From the Seafarer it is easy to escape in several different directions by foot, bike or car, which you could not consistently do from a place right in Chatham town. At the end of the day, it is nice to settle down in a lovely, roomy, quiet room or suite. And all at a really reasonable price.
