Charming & Historic!
Posted Jul 22, 2016
This is an historic grand house that's been tastefully converted for use as a b&b. Two common rooms - living rooms are in the center of the home, and a sunny room overlooking the garden serves as the breakfast room. I'd read that the home-cooked breakfasts here were quite a draw, and the hosts did not disappoint. Each morning we enjoyed a tasty 2-course meal (there are also a few menu choices) that was quite hearty. Our hosts and the staff were exceedingly gracious and accommodating, ready to assist with advice to first-timers to Chatham. They also lived many years on Nantucket and were helpful to us in decision-making for our day-trip there.
We stayed in the Cisco Room (1) which included the front porch for our private use. The room and bathroom were comfortable, spacious, and we really did feel the homey-ness was better than a hotel room. Since it was summer we didn't need the fireplace, but it did add to the charm of the room.
Parking for our rental car was in an assigned space, just a few steps from the front door. The location of Chatham Gables Inn is great for those who like to walk to the water or walk around the neighborhood. For drivers, it is also conveniently close to the main road in and out of town.
I would unreservedly recommend Chatham Gables Inn to anyone looking for an authentic taste of this charming Cape Cod town!
