Chatham Bars Inn is one of Cape Cod’s most beloved and storied destinations for family vacations, romantic getaways and corporate retreats. What opened as a luxury hunting lodge for wealthy Bostonians in 1914 is today a full-service resort with 217 individually decorated rooms and suites, endless recreational options, exceptional dining, and an exclusive spa.
Rooms with four-legged guests will be outfitted with a welcome mat, dog bed, food and water bowls, and a “Pet in Residence” sign for the door. In addition, a special welcome package will include a menu of canine cuisine plus information on local dog-friendly beaches, walking trails, and local kennels. Leashes, collars and other dog accessories will be available at Chatham Bars Inn’s retail shop, and the property map will be updated with paw prints to mark dog-friendly areas on the grounds, including the Cape Rose Cottage, Lilac House, South Lawn and Gazebo. Plastic gloves and bags will be stocked in these areas to simplify waste removal.
While the private beach at Chatham Bars Inn will be reserved for guests of the human variety, staff will be happy to point dogs desiring a romp in the sand and surf to a number of nearby beaches where they are welcome off-season (Sept. 15 – April 30). These include Cockle Cove, Forest, Harding, Jackknife Harbor, Oyster Pond, Pleasant Street, Ridgevale, Lighthouse and South (Nauset) Beach. And Cape Cod is replete with dog-friendly hiking and walking trails, from Chatham’s Morris Island Trail and Old Colony Rail Trail to nearby Orleans’ Kent’s Point Conservation Area and Brewster’s Eagle Point.
