About

Our newly refurbished historic and romantic B&B is ideally located in Cape Cod’s premier vacation destination, Chatham, Massachusetts. Our Inn is at the top of the dramatic Shore Road Loop, less than a mile from the vibrant Village center. We are a short stroll to the iconic Chatham Fish Pier and the nearest sandy shore landings. The Carriage House Inn, formerly the Captain Isaac H. Loveland Homestead (built c.1850), has been beautifully transformed blending spacious manicured grounds, period antique furnishings, graceful interiors, beautifully appointed guestrooms with private baths, and personalized concierge services to ensure an exceptional visit to the Cape. Enjoy the wonderfully detailed rooms in the main house with sun decks and easy access to the lovely period furnished dining room and living room, or relax in the large carriage house rooms beside your fireplace and enjoy the classic Adirondack chairs in your private garden. Recent extensive renovations at the Inn include a spacious rooftop deck (with an ocean peek above the stately neighboring homes), a new breakfast sunroom with private seating, and a gorgeous outdoor breakfast patio. Our king and queen guestrooms now include individual climate controls, luxury bedding, spa robes, exclusive Parisian bath amenities, house-made chocolate truffles, flat screen smart TVs, and complimentary Wi-Fi and newspapers. Our signature amenity features rustic gourmet multi-course Chef's breakfasts and afternoon tea and pastries.

Great location and great hospitality

5 on August 17, 2017

We stayed 5 nights at the Carriage House Inn on our first ever visit to Cape Cod. The Inn is simply beautiful: very convenient location, spacious and comfortable rooms with lots of light with all kinds of comfort. The common areas are charming. What made our stay really special was the excellent hospitality provided by Jim and Val and their daughter. Jim did give us very precious advice about everything, from sightseeing to routing to our destinations, shopping and restaurants. One of the highlights of the inn is the two-course breakfast (with different dishes every day) cooked by Val. We highly recommend this excellent and charming Inn.


Cozy & comfortable inn in Chatham with friendly & helpful hosts, Jim & Val. Location is perfect to nearby downtown Chatham for shopping & biking the area. Easy drive to the beaches and other sites in Chatham.

We were a group of 4 people and we war from 04.08 to 04.09 at the Carriage House Inn and had a really great weekend. When we arrived on saturday we were greeted with freshly baked biscuits - Which were very tasty. Then Jim gave us a map on which he has shown us and wrote where we could go and spent the evening. he gave us some really good insider tips which made the weekend very special for us! Sunday morning: Breakfast was from 9:00 to 9:30 am. and absolutely delicious!!!! We got orange juice, cranberry juice from the region, coffee, tea and water. at first we got a bowl granola filled with jugurt and strawberries and as a second dish we got eggs withe banana bred. When we left we got some great tips again. this weekend was very special for the 4 of us! Thank You

Super experience as first time B&B travelers.

Having always stayed only at recognized major hotel chains, we were apprehensive in booking a B&B for our visit to Cape Cod. Website looked attractive, interesting story about owners/hosts and reviews most positive and a value compared to hotels. our experience was truly outstanding and most memorable. Val and Jim made us fell welcomed, appreciated and comfortable. Val's breakfasts were incredible. Is there a 6 star category?


Great Place on The Cape
