We try to have a quick weekend getaway somewhere,
even if just for a night, every six months or so.
It forces us to succumb to a relaxation
that is sometimes harder to find at home,
surrounded by things needing to get done and plans to be had.
As a little Christmas treat to ourselves this year,
we booked Chatham Bars Inn for this past weekend’s winter escape.
I had been wanting to try the Inn for quite some time
and let me tell you, it did not disappoint!
There is something especially inviting about an Oceanside escape
that looks just as charming in the dead of winter as it does in high season.
We had one of their little cottages on the beach,
complete with fireplace and patio,
and it was as quaint, comfortable and cozy as we could have hoped.
I didn’t want to leave
and I can’t wait to go back!
As luck would have it,
Gilt City Boston has Chatham Bars Inn on their City Specials this week (4 days left!)
in case you wanted to treat yourself (I wholeheartedly recommend).
Should you decide to,
The Spa, we had massages there and they were worth every indulgent penny!
The Chatham Village Market, we picked up snacks and lunch for our room and the sandwiches were delicious.
The complimentary car service to/from town. Getting picked up in one of the Inn’s Land Rovers for dinner was a highlight!
They dropped us off and picked us up from dinner, both within 5 minutes of calling them. Serious perk.
Impudent Oyster for dinner. Even in the off-season, this local haunt was packed and the food was especially delicious.
The Chatham Squire saw the end of our night with delicious after-dinner drinks and fun people watching.
Finally, Chatham Village Café was our last stop on the way out of town on Sunday.
Delicious lattes and breakfast goodies to go were the perfect close to an awesome weekend.
Bottom line, CBI is not to be missed.
Be sure to let me know if you give it a try!
