WINTER ON THE CAPE

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.
