Val & Jim Mellett
The Carriage House Inn
Many authors have described the Cape Cod winters as a time of contemplation. A time to catch up on reading, a time to look back and a time to look ahead. A time to evaluate and a time to plan. The Cape in winter is tranquil and quiet. The traffic and the crowds of summer are gone. Chatham’s location at the elbow on the Cape and surrounded by the warm waters of Nantucket Sound and the opposing Atlantic lends itself to a very mild winter. In each of our three winters here, we have only experienced one snow storm each year. In the first two years we had one storm each year drop 10-12 inches of snow. But within two days, it was all melted and we enjoyed green grass for the remaining months. Because of this unique micro-climate, golfers enjoy hitting the links all winter long.
But back to the contemplative phase. Chatham offers long beach walks at Lighthouse or Hardings beaches. A visit to the Chatham Liquor Locker for a memorable bottle of wine to be paired with one of a hundred variety of cheeses from the Chatham Cheese Company.
Three of our five star restaurants are open year round. Our great fun-filled taverns, the Chatham Squire and the Red Nun, are also open year round. Or splurge and enjoy dinner at Stars, located in Chatham Bars Inn, just half a mile from Carriage House Inn.
Enhance your winter visit to Chatham with a visit to our downtown Spa partner, who offers amazing spa services to our guests with a significant reduction in fees.
Finish this contemplative weekend, wine, cheese, great food, massage, in front of one of our 4 fireplaces.
Come enjoy Chatham at the Carriage House Inn this winter. Check out our low off-season rates and midweek specials. Val will make sure you start your day with one of her sumptuous breakfasts.
