Library at Chatham Bars Inn
Amidst the bustle of the grand lobby of Chatham Bars Inn, nestled off the elegant main seating area, is a cozy and charming library. With a decorative fireplace, floor-to-ceiling books and plenty of board games, this nook is ideal for a quiet retreat during your visit to this venerable resort. You can even bring your coffee, tea, cocktail or glass of wine—served in the adjacent South Lounge—with you as you snuggle up with a good book on a wintery afternoon.

Dotted with old sea captains’ homes, Water Street runs from Mill Pond to the Atlantic Ocean, where it was once an important part of the commercial center of Chatham. In the 1800s, this now-quiet Town Landing was abuzz with Boston-bound packet ships unloading both passengers and cargo at wharves that jutted into the harbor. It’s best to get here on foot, as there is limited parking on this street.
On Lori: Cashmere/wool blend ribbed sleeve open cardigan paired with essential Sheri Pants.
Tucked between Main Street’s Lily Pulitzer store and the Snowy Owl Espresso Bar, this shaded and charming courtyard is a perfect place to stop and enjoy a cappuccino in the middle of a busy mother-daughter shopping day. Relax at one of the many tables or unwind on one of the benches set amongst trees and greenery.
On Lori: Elsa silk blouse in true navy with Kelly high-rise skinny ankle pant in Zanzibar zoo and Malindi clutch in gold metallic.
Featured bracelets from Lilly Pulitzer’s jewelry collection.
Shoe: Bridgette wedge in gold metallic
On Jillian: Sleeveless Emile dress in Zanzibar zoo, paired with Terri wrap in heathered blue peri, with starfish charm and short necklace from Lilly’s resort charm bar collection and Sirena Crossbody in Gold Metallic.

Originally located on Mill Hill east of Atwood Street (now Stage Harbor Road), this circa 1797 wind-powered grist mill, built by Colonel Benjamin Godfrey, was moved in the mid-1950s to the newly designated Chase Park, a small and secluded park off Cross Street that was donated by Avis Chase. Over the years, the Godfrey Windmill has undergone significant renovations that were ultimately completed in 2012, in time to celebrate Chatham’s tri-centennial. Open seasonally for tours and corn-grinding demonstrations, the windmill is a wonderful year-round spot for a dog walk or a stroll with friends and family.
