Whether you've spent every summer of your life visiting the Cape Cod shores or if you're a Boston local who's looking to host a destination wedding without traveling far, there are countless reasons you should consider the Chatham Bars Inn for your wedding ceremony and reception.

Located in historic Chatham, Massachusetts (a.k.a. one of Cape Cod's most beloved towns), this beautiful hotel, which is about an hour-and-a-half drive from Boston, is a true New England classic.

Breathe in sea air fresh off the bay as you wed on the property's private beach before posing for photos on the rustic wooden boardwalk or the grassy dunes. Then move your reception onto the sweeping bay-view lawn where guests can party under a sailcloth tent or into one of the beautiful dining rooms at the inn.

Guests will enjoy a traditional Cape Cod feast, with offerings including everything from miniature lobster rolls and Chatham-caught cod to Portobello mushroom risotto and grilled filet of beef. And what makes the meal even better is that Chatham Bars Inn owns a nearby eight-acre farm, where they grow and source the freshest seasonal vegetables and berries that are used for their dining options. Winter brides can take advantage of the farm-to-table options, too! Their two greenhouses produce tons of lettuces and micro greens for the freshest meals year round.

Whether you're hosting a quintessential beach wedding in the summer or an off-season affair in the winter, you can trust the Chatham Bars Inn will make your nuptials the most special day of your life. Plus, with tons of accommodations right on the property, you and your guests can turn your wedding day into an all-weekend event!
