One of the world’s most romantic beach destinations is Cape Cod, Massachusetts. With nearly 600 miles of coastline and a bounty of picturesque towns and stunning resorts, this sandy peninsula is a beloved place to honeymoon or say, “I do.”

An exquisite place to stay is Chatham Inn, Cape Cod’s only Relais & Châteaux and Forbes Five-Star hotel in the charming town of Chatham. Completely renovated, this historic refuge lies steps from myriad galleries, shops and restaurants, yet offers quiet luxury due to its petite size. 

The property has eighteen rooms and suites, each decorated in an elegant neutral palette with marble and onyx bathrooms, chic furnishings and original artwork. A sweet little bar lies just off the reception area and an outdoor patio provides the perfect spot to sip a latte or cocktail under a leafy canopy of trees. The vibe is relaxed, understated and elegant.

One of the hotel’s crown jewels is Cuvée restaurant, under the helm of Executive Chef, Isaac Olivo, who worked at Manhattan’s Michelin 3-star Jean-Georges and the Forbes Five-Star hotel The Peninsula New York. Inside the plush dining room, you can enjoy a four- or seven-course tasting menu featuring locally sourced ingredients, including fresh herbs and produce from the inn’s garden. Alternatively, you and yours can enjoy a bespoke 10-plus course dinner at the private Chef’s Table (available November-May). Wine pairings are available for all menus.

With a dedicated staff eager to make your stay as perfect as possible, consider adding romantic touches like fresh flowers in your room, a bottle of wine or chilled champagne, a charcuterie or cheese board and a selection of locally-crafted chocolate truffles. The inn also can arrange several private adventures, such as a sunset sailboat ride, a dune tour in a 4-wheel SUV and a breathtaking 55-minute aerial tour over Cape Cod via Stick’n Rudder Aero Tours in a vintage biplane. Staff can book you a private whale-watching tour, arrange for body treatments at a nearby spa or an E-biking excursion past marshes, beaches and woodlands on the Cape Cod Rail Trail, courtesy of rented E-bikes from Orleans Cycle. 

Regardless of your romantic desires, Chatham Inn can fulfill them all, whether it’s tying the knot or celebrating your nuptials—all in the dreamy splendor of Cape Cod.
