“I saw that this was a place of wonders,” wrote the naturalist poet Henry David Thoreau about Cape Cod. With its dunes and meadows, its marshes populated by white cedar trees and its offshore whale colonies, this peninsula is an inexhaustible resource for not only nature lovers but also city dwellers in search of tranquillity.
On the southeastern tip, picturesque Chatham Inn is the perfect bucolic getaway. A stone’s throw from superb Lighthouse Beach, its eighteen modern rooms and suites are cocoons of romance and comfort, with many boasting their own fireplaces. In the restaurant, decorated with works by local artists, chef Brandon DiFiglio draws inspiration from the day’s fresh catch and the Cape’s rich culinary traditions.
