Chatham Bars Inn
The beach at the Chatham Bars Inn (297 Shore Road, Chatham, 809-527-4884, www.chathambarsinn.com) is a popular swimming and sunbathing spot. In summer you’ll pay a minimum room rate of $465 at this AAA four-diamond resort overlooking Pleasant Bay. But through March you can snag a room featuring Frette linens, Aveda bath and body products, Bose wave radios, and high-def televisions for $199 plus tax and resort fee. And you’ll still have access to the fitness center, full-service spa, dining room, and afternoon tea. The charming town of Chatham with galleries, shops, and restaurants is within walking distance of the inn.
