In Cape Cod, the hotels and inns aren’t just attractive—they have impressive pedigrees to match. There are hotels in mansions built for sea captains and there’s even an inn set on the beach where the Pilgrims are thought to have landed. For the most luxurious places to stay, head to Chatham and Harwich, where you’ll find the Chatham Bars Inn and the Wequassett Resort and Golf Club, both rated highly by Travel + Leisure readers. Chatham is also home to the Chatham Inn at 359 Main, a passion project of a long-time vacationer in the area. Some of the other top hotels include the Ocean’s Edge in Brewster and the Whalewalk in Eastham. In Provincetown, there are classics like the Red Inn, which hosted President Theodore Roosevelt back in the day. Sister properties Eben House and Salt House are newcomers that are reinventing the bed-and-breakfast genre. When choosing your hotel, it’s best to consider where you want to spend your trip, as most travelers don’t want to pay too much for their vacation driving up and down the Cape. And keep in mind that many hotels in Cape Cod are open only seasonally, from April through October, and can be extremely expensive during the summer months.
