Cape Cod’s Finest Luxury Hotel: Chatham Bars Inn
The Chatham Bars Inn is one of the most elegant Cape Cod destinations. You can choose between staying in their Main Inn, Cottages, or Spa Suites. Swim in the Atlantic Ocean, lounge in one of their private cabanas, or take a walk on their private quarter mile beach overlooking Aunt Lydia’s Cove. The Chatham Bars Inn even hosts their own private fleet if you are interested in boating tours or whale watching. Guests can even enjoy their complimentary daily boat shuttle service to the Cape Cod National Seashore’s North Beach Island just across the cove. Other amenities include their farm, spa menu, golf course, tennis courts, and incredible dining options. My personal favorite is the Beach House Grill offering stunning views of the waterfront setting just a few steps away.
