Cape Cod's most beloved and storied destinations for family vacations, romantic getaways, and corporate retreats. First opened as a luxury hunting lodge for wealthy Bostonians in 1914, today it is a full-service resort with 217 individually decorated rooms and suites, endless recreational options, exceptional dining, and an exclusive wellness spa. Chatham Bars Inn underwent a $100-million renovation that retained the Inn's turn-of-the-century charm and breezy, seaside ambience, while adding the modern comforts and amenities associated with luxury living.
