Is Chatham Bars Inn Dog-Friendly?

Wondering if you can bring your dog when you stay at Chatham Bars Inn?


Short answer: yes - just give us a call first to make the arrangements.


Long answer: we welcome your furry friend with open arms! We treat our guests’ dogs like members of their family.


We have about 15 rooms that we’ve designated as dog-friendly. If you’d like to book one of these rooms, call our reservation team and let them know! For an additional pet fee and deposit*, we’ll provide a dog bed and dog treats, though we ask that you bring along a crate. If you really want to celebrate your pooch, we can help with that - we’ve even helped our guests throw dog birthday parties in the past.


For more info, and to reserve your dog-friendly room, call (800) 527-4884.


Dog-Friendly Activities


Chatham is an extremely dog-friendly town, ensuring that you and your pup won’t be bored during your stay at Chatham Bars Inn.


Beach Walk at Jackknife Harbor


Most beaches in Chatham do not allow dogs during the summer, with some exceptions. If you’re hankering for a beach walk, we recommend taking your dog for a stroll at Jackknife Harbor, which allows dogs before 9am and after 6pm.


Nature Walk at Thompson’s Field


Though it’s technically in Harwich, Thompson’s Field is a hugely popular spot for dog walkers. Your pup is sure to love it!


Rent a Kayak With Your Dog


Feeling adventurous? Then you might have a blast renting a kayak with your dog! They’ll love cruising over the open water and taking in the sights just as much as you will.


Visit Chatham Dog Club


Though it’s best known as a doggy daycare and training facility, rumor has it that the Chatham Dog Club will be opening a private dog park this summer, complete with a pool for doggy dock diving. Check out their Facebook page for updates.


Dine and Shop Downtown


Downtown Chatham is extremely dog-friendly, with many stores welcoming well-behaved dogs enthusiastically. We recommend taking a walk down Main Street, doing some shopping and splitting an ice cream cone with your furry friend on a hot summer day.
