“A Special Place - A Place To Be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2011

Girls' weekend, our first time at Chatham Bars Inn. We totally enjoyed ourselves.

The bell staff, the front desk and concierge, the restaurant servers, shopkeepers were all wonderful, genuinely kind and very helpful. Our rooms were comfy and cozy - a charming combination of mid-century New England and contemporary ammenities. Glorious views of Chatham Bay from our Main Inn rooms and decks, especially at sunrise.

The sitting areas on our floor as well as those in the lobby were inviting, and a sun-drenched corner of the South Lounge became our meeting place of choice. On our last day of stay, we were treated to a view of seemingly hundreds of seals on a bar in the bay through the inn's brass telescope.

The breakfast buffet (not included) was perfect for our group - with a favorite item being a creamy rich oatmeal (this ain't yo' daddy's oatmeal). But an order of blueberry pancakes will be on our list of to-dos at every return to the inn - nothing like a blueberry pancake anywhere else. Dinner in the tavern was delicious and at ease.

We just got back from a great stay at the CBI. The service is fantastic, the common rooms are gracious and peaceful. Going in off season is a great time to be there, highly reduced room rates and no crowds.

The ocean view cottage offered a luxurious experience and a wonderful view of the sunrise.
The Inn, staff, and restaurants were tops. We'll have to come back in the summer to experience the beach and the pool.

Top notch resort on Cape Cod, The Chatham Bars Inn did not disappoint! My husband took me for one night to celebrate my birthday. I am sure it helped, that it was a beautiful spring day - and we walked along and sat by the beach. The Inn is beautiful, the common room with fireplace was inviting, the rooms cozy and well appointed. It is an expensive hotel, but off season, the price was wonderful, and truly a great way to relax and enjoy this hotel for less money and less crowds!! We will definitely return!!

I booked this Inn for my fiancee's birthday expecting a nice quiet winter romantic getaway, instead we were guests of the Inn among a large wedding party. This is a beautiful Inn and the bridal party and their guests were very fortunate to have stayed there but we do not feel as fortunate. First let me say that we were not allowed to dine in the dining room because of the wedding so that left only the tavern to dine. Luckily we had enough sense to book a reservation for dinner but only had a choice of 5 pm and 8:15 pm, we chose the later. We arrived on time and were seated immediately at a cocktail table next to 2 couples who obviously had already had a few drinks. Nothing wrong with that but the tavern was so crowded and noisy we could hardly speak to one another across the small table. We feel that if an Inn is going to host a wedding, they should go out of their way to accommodate the other guests who were unaware of this event when they booked their reservations.

I am truly sorry for the disappointment we caused by our Main Dining Room being closed due to a private function.

We always regret when weddings or company events limit the dining options of other in-house guests. At the time a room reservation is made, it is not always known yet that the Main Dining Room or other venues may be blocked for a private celebration. We have therefore decided to implement a procedure whereby guests affected by such circumstances will be called prior to their arrival to advise them accordingly and offer assistance with reservations and transportation to other restaurants. I apologize that this was apparently not done in your case and I have addressed this oversight with the department head concerned.

We look forward to welcoming you back for a guest experience that will meet every one of your expectations from arrival until departure.

Everything about the CBI was GREAT! We especially loved the beds (we got ~11 hours of sleep each night), the fireplace in the room, the huge bathtub, the lounge area in the main lobby, and the Tavern bar - inventive and delicious food (lobster pizza!) and drinks! The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable! Beautiful location, even in the off-season!
