Chatham Bars Inn Resort and Spa has been an idyllic Cape Cod family vacation retreat noted for its excellent service, fine cuisine and beautiful surroundings since 1914. The Inn is nestled near the heart of Chatham on 25 beautifully landscaped acres overlooking Pleasant Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. This world-famous turn-of-the-century landmark has a remarkable ambiance. The expansive lounge, front veranda and main dining room have been returned to their original grandeur, affording panoramic ocean views and gentle sea breezes.

The location is lovely, however the actual experience was not. We stayed in one of the cottages which had 8 rooms. Some of our neighbors had 8 kids and 2 adults in their suite. The door to the room slammed between 8 and 11 pm and once at 4:50 am. The front desk manager told me that they had no control on how many people were occupying a room. Due to COVID they had one menu that was being served in all of the restaurants. The food was fine - but not worth a return trip. Parking was also a big problem at the cottages. I had two rooms and one car and still was not able to park at the cottage. The property has seen better days. The rugs were stained and need replacing. The white trim on the cottages is peeling down to the wood. There was a hole in the tile of my bathroom and the gas fireplace had a corner jutting out where it had not been installed correctly. The vent above the toilet was coated with dust and I hand to alert management to come and clean. When you are paying over $1000 per room per night you expect much better!

What a beautiful trip. Everything was perfect. Our room was beautiful with a big deck overlooking the water with such a beautiful view of the ocean and boats. My daughter didn’t want to leave the property at all. We are, drank, laughed. Really had a 10/10 stay. Highly recommend. She would like to do this yearly. Thank you for a great experience.

This resort is the most magical place I have been to at least in the US. This is our fourth year traveling to Chatham bars Inn and I cannot say enough about the service the amenities just the amazing pool and beach experience everything is top notch. It does look a little pricey but trust me it is so worth it for family or for a romantic long weekend. They are back at full force after the pandemic and the leader ship of the entire staff is noticeably many notches above other resorts I have visited. Please give this place a try it is amazing

Worst dining experience ever. We’ve been going to Chatham Bars for the $55-110 per head clam bake at the beach grill for years and this was truly awful. The buffet contained nothing but boiled potato’s, cold pasta salad and a plate of dry lettuce (sign said heirloom tomato salad but there were none). A too thick chowder gave two of us a stomach ache and a slice of “roast” was full of fat and inedible. One on our party ordered the mahi mahi fish which came grey and rubbery. The desert was nothing special also- watermelon and ice cream (no hot fudge or anything special). We understand all cape businesses are having trouble staffing so we were patient and tipped our servers well but the quality of the food was fraudulent. We spent over $700 for four adults and two kids and everyone was hungry later. We could have come up with a better meal at a grocery store salad bar.

My wife and I stayed at the Chatham Bars Inn for three nights in early June. Overall, the property is truly beautiful. Our room and a lovely view of the Chatham Bars, and the Adirondack chairs scattered around the resort are ideal for enjoying a glass of wine or reading a book. The Nespresso coffee machine and bathrobes are a nice touch. The bed was very comfortable and at night we enjoyed the peace and quiet. We arrived about an hour before guaranteed check-in time. Our room wasn't ready yet, so we elected to have a drink at the bar while we waited. The bell service is outstanding at the resort, both the valet and the Lexus vehicles you can request to drive you to and from different parts of Chatham. Our booking included a free upgrade if available. I inquired (I don't think the check-in staff recognized that option), but an upgrade was unavailable. Every morning we enjoyed breakfast on the patio in the main building. It was buffet only, however you could still order eggs and toast to order. The service at breakfast was consistently good and the buffet was very nice. We had lunch twice in the Beach House Grill. The service and food there were excellent both times. The menu is a little limited, but we were satisfied with the quality and portions. Unfortunately, there were some issues with our stay. On check-in, my wife used the restroom and their was no hand soap in the main lobby. A little alarming after the past 18 months. As I mentioned, the grounds are beautiful - as a result there are lot of personnel, lawnmowers, and trucks moving around the property most of the day. We came back to the room one day to a staff member talking on their cell phone just outside our window for about 30 minutes. We could hear the whole conversation and kept our blinds shut so that he couldn't see in. We had drinks at the outside bar adjacent to the main building one evening and decided we'd get some appetizers and move to the Adirondack chairs. The bartender was very insistent we close out our tab since the server we'd have in the chairs would open a new check. We did so, moved to the chairs, were never served, and left. We ate dinner one night at the Sacred Cod. It was busy, but there was only one or two servers. They were unable to keep up, and the bartender (likely due to stress) was a bit rude to my wife - apparently he was the only bartender working that night covering three restaurants. At least he made sure we knew that. Ultimately, we were unable to get our check so we left and I had the hostess bring our bill to us in the lobby. I think we interacted with our waitress twice in over an hour. There was a small piece of glass in our room (I think it was in the closet and was pushed out when I dropped a sock in the closet and then put the sock on). Certainly a one in a million event, but the only time I've ever had to pull a piece of glass out of my foot. The Spa - really the biggest letdown. We had a couples massage that was over $500 and was one of the most underwhelming experiences I've had. The facility is ok (I think in need of an upgrade), but the massages just weren't good. Plus there was a fair amount of noise from other staff members outside our treatment room. I left feeling ripped off. Ultimately, the resort didn't deliver on what we visited for...a needed relaxing stay. We left with a large bill, and fairly sizable sense of frustration. I spoke with a manager the morning we departed and he was receptive to my feedback. Our room was beautifully decorated and had a lovely view, I actually feel like we got our money's worth for the room. But many (not all) of the resorts amenities ended up frustrating us more that providing us a service. If you stay at the resort - get a room with a view, enjoy breakfast, beach, pool, and the car service. Avoid the property from 10 - 4. Bring your own bottles of wine and make reservations at some of the local restaurants for dinner.
