We are an Award Winning Four-1/2 Star Class Historic & Charming Inn under Professional Chef Management for relaxing couples getaways and for serious foodies!  Our freshly renovated 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 only 1/3rd mile to the nearest sandy shore beach access. Many of our guests have never stayed at a small inn or B&B but once they experience our Inn’s common area privacy, luxury amenities, outdoor spaces, private entrances, amazing Chef cuisine and personal trip planning concierge services, they fall in love! Our Guests are the ONLY priority at this Inn, you are treated like family and best friends– and don’t have to experience an open public bar or loud late night restaurant crowd when you need down time to relax in our quiet common rooms or by our cozy fireplace with your special someone!

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 and late evening strolls to town!

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 white tablecloth 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, Jo Malone room sprays, 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. Chef Peter has trained in France and worked in 5 star inns, bakeries and restaurants in the USA, France & Australia. 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!

Welcome to the New Carriage House Inn at Chatham!

Consistent 5-Star praise for The New Carriage House Inn in 2018:
“An Elegant European Feel in this Charming B&B!  This Bed and Breakfast sets the bar for style and service. We found the Carriage House Inn through a web search and were intrigued by the pictures and its history. We were not disappointed!  Brian was the perfect host, energetic and full of information about Chatham and the Cape that made our trip so much better. Great recommendations for cycling, sightseeing, and meals. It’s obvious how much Brian and Peter care about their guests and how much they’ve personally invested in the lovely property. Tastefully and cleanly decorated with luxury amenities and fine New England Art & Antiques. We’ve traveled a lot, and found that the Carriage House Inn brings back our best memories of small family-owned European hotels and guesthouses. Great common spaces that are quiet and relaxing. The breakfasts by Chef Peter were some of the best we’ve ever had — incredibly tasty and so artfully prepared. On our next trip to the Cape we will be back to stay with them, I am sure. Highly recommended for anyone hoping for a quiet, romantic, relaxing and perfect stay on the Cape.”  – Brian B, Denver CO (Stayed Sept. 2018)
“A Perfect Experience – Newly Renovated Inn!  The Carriage House Inn experience was friendly and welcoming from start to finish. In a word, perfection. During booking, room descriptions were clear and every detail promised was delivered. The room was well appointed, clean, and comfortable. The Inn is freshly renovated and decorated with Cape appropriate antiques. It was lovely and functional at the same time. Breakfast (included) was amazing and came in two courses: one with homemade bread/pastry, freshly made jam and mixed fruit, and a second with a prepared dish with eggs or granola+yogurt as optional substitutes. The menu changed daily, but there were plenty of options. The food was hand crafted by Chef Peter, who delivered the main course to our table. A top notch dining experience for breakfast. Brian, the Host, was happy to share his experience with local restaurants, beaches, nature walks, etc. He also asked for feedback so he could tailor his future recommendations based on guests’ experiences. He offered hand notated maps and curated guides that were very helpful for planning daily activities. He was friendly and present, and clearly took pride in his work running the inn.  I highly recommend the Carriage House Inn.”- Michael G., Boston MA (Stayed August 2018)
