Enjoy quintessential New England charm while staying on Cape Cod with Inspirato. Our partner hotel, Chatham Bars Inn, features refined rooms and suites overlooking a quarter-mile of private beach near Chatham Harbor, on what’s known as the Lower Cape. Relax on the beach in a private cabana and enjoy food-and-beverage service from the inn.
Elsewhere on the inn’s property, four-bedroom homes Claflin House and Kettle Drum House give you the space and privacy of a standalone residence as well as access to the amenities of the stately Chatham Bars Inn, including restaurants, an oceanfront pool, and spa.
Exploring the Cape is a full-time, leisurely adventure, whether you're biking the "Rail Trail"or picknicking on and building sand castles on beautiful seaside sands. Your Destination Concierge will make reservations for fresh seafood fine dining or arrange for a rustic clambake on the beach. As the sun goes down, head to Provincetown for boisterous nightlife and Chatham for shopping. Head to the Cape to watch whales, snag a tuna, or find the perfect balance between relaxation and excitement. As a member, we'll make sure finding the ideal New England experience is as easy as sinking into the warm sand.
Cape Cod Bay separates the Outer Cape from the mainland. Numerous beaches hug the cape's inner curve, which offers waves that are calmer and gentler than the ocean side.
New England is one of the top 10 areas in the world to spot whales, and they flock here to feed on mackerel, herring and krill. Humpback and finback whales are the most common. Whale-watching high season is April through October.
On the Cape for more than 50 years, the Mews Restaurant & Cafe is a Provincetown staple. The Zagat-rated menu of seafood and steak boasts international flair and the waterfront location is ideal for sipping cocktails.
Wellfleet's town center is home to two dozen art galleries featuring local and national artists. Save a Saturday evening in July or August for an exhibit opening featuring locally-sourced cheese, fruit and wine.
For nearly 40 years, The Lobster Pot has been a Provincetown mainstay, serving up fresh seafood and steaks in a premier waterfront location.
Along the Cape, lighthouses keep fishing and commercial boats safe. Kids love visiting these unique beacons, and Nauset Light is the closest to your residence. Also visit Race Point, Chatham Light and Highland Light.
Cape Cod boasts a true maritime climate characterized by constant cooling breezes, chilly winters and mild springs, summers and falls. Summertime is ideal for swimming and beach days, though a visit to the cape in fall or spring reveals equally pleasant temperatures and far fewer crowds. Like much of New England, the weather on Cape Cod can change quickly, so dress in layers.
