“Dont miss this great spot!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

If you are up to great time , Chatham surrounding will do the trick , and if you need a good nice sleep , warm hospitality , great tips from your host , the Old Harbor Inn is for you.
We had crossed the ocean for a short 10 day vacation at the USA.
We have spent our two first nights at this location only to find out later that this was the best location for the entire trip.
Judy & Ray (The owners ) and lovely Tanya are professional as well as warm hurt people. They let us feel at home , breakfast was filled with variety of interesting stuff that have changed every day. The tips and guidance that we got , save us time and money. In a nut shell.. Go there you will be happy .

You will do yourself a disservice if you do not stay here to enjoy charming and homey accommodations and Ray, Judy, and Tanya’s hospitality. Their 17 years as innkeepers shine through in a meticulously maintained and appointed inn, scrumptious breakfasts, and knowledgeable tourist guiding. We spent three nights and easily could have stayed much, much longer. All rooms but one are “en suite” with roomy, comfortable bathrooms. The afternoon “treat” is something to look forward too, as well. More than a guest, the entire staff make you feel like family.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Old Harbor Inn... Not only is it a great location on the Cape, in the heart of charming Chatham (we were able to walk to dinner and shopping every day!), Judy and Ray are wonderful hosts! From the delicious breakfasts to guidance on things to do and see and to taking care of every detail of need, Judy and Ray were there. However, it still felt very private and cozy - a wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary. We will stay at Old Harbor Inn again the next time we are in the area, a fantastic find!

We recently stayed at the Old Harbor Inn as one of our stops on our first trip to Boston and Cape Cod. From the moment we walked through the door we felt truly welcome and were able to relax. Our room, The Oyster Pond was luxurious and such a lovely surprise when the door was opened. Previous reviewers have mentioned the lovely breakfasts with delicious aromas to tempt you in to dine but it is the attention to detail and comfort of the guests that makes this Inn so special. If we had known how comfortable we would feel here we would have booked for longer! The proximity to the delights of Chatham are an all important bonus and we will look forward to a return trip to stay at this exceptional property. Thank you, Judy, Ray and the team.

Old Harbor Inn is a great B&B in a wonderful location, an easy walk to blocks loaded with restaurants and shops. The inn has pleasant public spaces including a deck and patio to enjoy. The breakfasts are delicious and there is always a home baked treat waiting for you at the end of the day. The innkeepers are as warm and welcoming as I have met anywhere.
The Oyster Pond Room is wonderful! Bright and airy with an exceptionally comfortable bed and linens. The bathroom is huge. It features a large jacuzzi tub with a tv over it, separate shower and granite topped vanity. It has a mini fridge that they stock with water and a basket with snacks sits atop.

Room Tip: Oyster Pond has an angled ceiling in one area that may be awkward for a very tall person. It has the...

We recently stayed at the Inn when traveling to Chatham for a dinner party. Our room was immaculate and cozy, with a basket of snacks and refreshments in the fridge. In the kitchen a delectable apple dessert was being baked with the aroma wafting upstairs. The staff was warm and friendly, and breakfast was excellent. Easy walk to town and the lighthouse. Comfortable King bed. We would stay here again if Cape Cod bound.

My husband and I recently celebrated our 32nd Anniversary at The Old Harbor Inn. Having stayed at many of the inn's on Cape Cod, this one deserves a review. The Inn itself is beautifully decorated in and out with plenty of parking. The breakfast varies daily, with a wide variety to choose from, and it smells like Heaven:) excellent coffee too! Our room was immaculate and the bedding was so comfortable, it beat out the Queen Elizabeth in Montreal. Walking distance to downtown Chatham shops and restaurants. I will definitely recommend the Old Harbor Inn.
