Plan The Ultimate Autumn Cape Cod Adventure With These Luxurious Resorts

“While there’s no shortage of top-tier cuisine to be found all throughout Cape Cod, Chatham offers a particularly enticing array of restaurants concentrated in one small community—and the opulent Chatham Inn is home to one of the town’s finest destinations for seasoned gourmands.”

The 11 Best U.S. Destinations to Visit During the Fall Off-Season

“Take an autumn trip to Chatham, Massachusetts, at the southeastern tip of Cape Cod, and experience an array of special fall happenings on the enchanting New England coast.”

These Are the Best Spots in the U.S. to See Beautiful Fall Foliage

“While you may think of Cape Cod as a summer destination (and you’re definitely not wrong), it’s also a stunning spot to visit in the fall. As leaves change to russet reds and vibrant oranges, you can take in the cooler weather, go whale watching, or visit local cranberry bogs.”

The Chicest Destinations For A Last-Chance Summer Vacation

“Manhattanites wanting to decamp to the beach should consider road-tripping to the Cape Cod town of Chatham. Chic, nautical, and charming are the names of the game here. When in this New England coastal enclave, book a stay at Relais & Chateaux’s Chatham Inn.”

Wonderful Moments And Memories Will Wow You At The Chatham Inn

“Have you ever had a hospitality experience that was so good – so beyond the best – that it brought tears to your eyes?

That’s what recently happened to a new bride and her husband, who honeymooned at the Forbes 5-Star Chatham Inn, on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. The couple finished dinner in the acclaimed Cuvee restaurant – at which point the staff presented them with custom-made cappuccinos – with one of their internet wedding photos prominently displayed in the foam.”

New England has one of the top 5 hotels in the world, according to Travel + Leisure

A look inside Cape Cod’s newest five-star hotel

“When the Chatham Inn received its five-star rating from Forbes Magazine in April, there was a bit of confusion, even among the New Englanders who descend upon Cape Cod each summer.

Isn’t it called Chatham Bars Inn?

The confusion was understandable. Chatham Bars Inn has been around since 1914 and has more than 200 rooms. The Chatham Inn arrived in 2015 and has just 18 rooms. Now the difference between the two is more than the word “Bars.” For those keeping count, the Chatham Inn has five stars, Chatham Bars has four.”

For the next century or so, the inn changed hands (and names) four times, but it wasn’t until 1936 when the charming outpost adjusted to the times in a big way: Carl and Doris Chandler, who owned the inn for nearly two decades, built the first in-house restaurant, which still stands today.”
