Not your typical B&B, we are an Award Winning Four-1/2 Star Class Inn under NEW Professional Chef management!  Our freshly updated historic and romantic Adults Only B&B is ideally located in Cape Cod’s premier vacation destination, Chatham, Massachusetts. Our Inn is at the top of the dramatic Shore Road Loop, only 7/10ths of a mile from the vibrant Village center! We are a short stroll to the iconic Chatham Fish Pier, the Chatham Bars and the nearest sandy shore landings.

The Carriage House Inn, formerly the Captain Isaac H. Loveland Homestead (built c.1850), has been beautifully transformed blending spacious manicured grounds, period 18th C. antique furnishings, graceful interiors, beautifully appointed guestrooms each with private baths, and personalized concierge services to ensure an exceptional visit to the Cape. Enjoy the wonderfully detailed rooms on the second floor of the Main House with large private sun decks and close proximity to the lovely period furnished dining room and living room on the first floor, or relax in the large freshly re-decorated first floor Carriage House Cottage rooms beside your own fireplace and enjoy the classic Adirondack chairs in your own private gardens. Don’t settle for a mere room in a larger inn, when you can enjoy relaxing personal space at our Coastal compound! Most of our rooms have private entrances inviting early morning nearby beach walks or late evening strolls to town a breeze!

Amenities at our Inn include Main House rooms with original C. 1850 restored wood flooring, lovely Cape Cod shell paths to each C. 1890 Carriage House guest room, new cherry flooring in each Carriage House room, a spacious rooftop deck (with an ocean peek above the stately neighboring homes), a large sunny breakfast sun room with private seating, a gorgeous outdoor breakfast patio, new privacy fencing, new privacy cedar hedge, new nautical lighted flagpole, and new Ethan Allen King beds. Our king and queen guestrooms include individual climate controls, luxury 600-thread count bedding, spa robes and slippers, exclusive Parisian bath amenities, local Chatham Candy Manor welcome chocolates, flat screen TVs, and new high-speed complimentary FCC licensed broadcast Wi-Fi and newspapers. You will find an attentive but very discreet staff that gives our romantic couples their privacy and personal space above all else. 

Our signature amenity features rustic gourmet multi-course breakfasts and afternoon tea and pastries prepared and artfully presented by our Professional Chef and Co-Owner Peter Varns inspired by European classics and locally sourced foods of the Cape region. Breakfasts are served at private elegant white tablecloth tables for two. You won’t want to miss Chef Peter’s cooking school weekends in the off season either! Our fresh always house-made cuisine truly is a highlight for our Guests. Our Inn has become famous for its low-sugar and gluten-free deliciously prepared options, using locally-sourced ingredients and herbs from our own gardens!

The Carriage House Inn is the ideal Cape bed and breakfast lodging choice: Here you can stroll to the beach, wander through the Village’s many unique shops and art galleries, enjoy local theaters, classical music offerings and weekly bandstand concerts, take a ferry to the local Monomoy Island Wild Life Refuge or to Chatham’s private North and South Nauset Beaches for one of a kind excursions, board the Nantucket Freedom Ferry at Harwich, or drive up to Provincetown for the afternoon. It’s all within easy reach. Our new walking gate on Old Harbor Road makes it even easier to stroll to downtown shops, dining and events!

Popular area activities include enjoying the area’s renowned resort spas, golfing the spectacular local courses, sailing and seal cruises, hiking area conservation trails, touring Chatham’s lighthouses, renting bikes by the Cape Cod Rail Trail just down the street, and chartering a sport fishing vessel at the nearby pier. Whatever you choose to do, let us provide you with personalized concierge assistance to make your vacation a memorable one. 

Attention Boaters! Our Chef Peter was Galley Chef on a classic 39 foot motor yacht cruising many New England harbors so we know how to treat our yachting guests and crew well. Come ashore to our awaiting CHI SUV at Oyster River Boatyard, Ryder’s Cove Boatyard or Harwichport’s Saquatucket Marina!

Do call us in advance so we can ensure you have the optimal rooming and meal arrangements! Weekends are booking up!

Come relax, play, shop and rejuvenate… With a limited number of beautiful rooms each with private outdoor spaces, our inn is large enough to be rated in the top four adult-only boutique B&Bs on Cape Cod, yet small enough to provide the personal services, unmatched chef cuisine and the pampering you deserve!

Welcome to the New Carriage House Inn at Chatham!

See what returning Guests are now saying about The New Carriage House Inn:
“On our recent third visit to the Carriage House Inn, we discovered a wonderful new experience. What a change!  It starts with the downstairs renovations, now reflecting the original interior of Sea Captain Isaac Loveland’s historic home. Our Oyster Pond guest room had now been refurbished with the utmost care toward comfort and serenity.
Our enjoyment was taken to another level when we sat down to breakfast. Chef Peter exceeded our breakfast expectations by demonstrating his superb culinary skills — apple puff pastries, blueberry pancakes, herbed creme fraiche scrambled eggs, and for afternoon tea, unique Greek pastries. Absolutely delicious!
Brian and Chef Peter, you were exceptional hosts. You struck a perfect balance between meeting our every need, and providing the private time to enjoy the amenities of your wonderful inn.
We certainly will be returning.”- Penny & Kirk M., Sturbridge MA
