We had a lovely stay at Captain's House Inn! We were coming to Chatham for the first time for a wedding and were so pleased that we stayed here as it was close to everything.

We stayed just one night at the inn, but we really enjoyed it. The grounds are beautiful, the room was large and well-appointed relative to its Cape Cod digs, and the staff was all very friendly. The breakfast the next day was also delicious and quick and it was nice to have a choice of selections as opposed to a buffet style. We were able to walk to Chatham...See More

Beautiful large garden setting for this charming accommodation. We received a warm welcome and excellent hospitality and service from Mike and his colleagues. Especially notable was the generous constant offering of food and drink, and the great breakfast. I would recommend this to anybody visiting the lovely town of Chatham.

My husband and I just spent our babymoon here and we couldn’t be more happy. The room was very cozy with a gas fireplace in the corner and extremely comfortable bed, the breakfast was delicious every morning, and the staff was top notch! Everyone was so accommodating, we felt so pampered. The location also can’t be beat. Just down the road from the center of town, restaurants and shops...See More
