About Chatham Wayside Inn

Your First Visit Won’t Be Your Last

Our 56-room hotel has been in this location on Main Street since 1860. Today, it delivers all the charm of a historic Cape Cod inn with modern amenities, a pool, and one of the area’s most popular restaurants. We are within a 10-minute walk of Oyster Pond, Lighthouse Beach, and other picturesque coastal spots. Staying right on Main Street has its pleasures, too—you can watch the 4th of July parade from our property, get your fill of boutiques and small-town strolling, and easily stake out your picnic spot for summer concerts at Kate Gould Park, which is next to our property.
