“an hidden jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2012

This is b&b offers an excellent atmosphere and value for money. Rooms are clean and confortable. The price are very reasonable for the location and it is run by a very friendly old woman. The breackfast table offer the possibility of interesting conversations and the small patio outside a great location for an evening chat. In short on of the best B&B in the Cape Cod area. Additional benefits no TV and no internet. Albeit the latter can be accessed in ways you will find out. No credit cards, but checks on US banks are accepted.

This guest house is run by Grandma Vera with a little help from her family. The rooms are immaculately clean, good sized and in the original colonial style. It is one of the closest guest houses to the town centre, without the top end price tag. Breakfast was ample - bagel/english muffin, fresh fruit, fruit juice, tea/coffee. We were so charmed with Chatham town that we stayed a night longer than planned. The only possible draw back is the absence of wifi. The property is open year round, if the family are at home.

Room Tip: The extra $115 for the larger rooms is well worth it!

My husband and I love vacationing in Chatham every year. We have researched many B&B's and never found a price as good as at the Bow Roof- for less than $100/night you have a clean room, private bath and a small breakfast in the morning. The Bow Roof is located close to the center of town and is a short walk from great restaurants. Considering we spend the majority of our vacation at the beach and not in the room, we don't mind that there is no TV or AC- it's definitely a rustic stay but quaint and meets our needs. Vera is an interesting host but is accommodating and respects our space. The small breakfast takes a while for her to serve but we are on vacation and never in a rush- for $100/night- we have no complaints!

I'm shocked that this property hasn't been reviewed yet. I found out about it on another website and am so thankful that I did!

The Bow Roof House is located very conveniently in Chatham - a 5 to 7 minute walk to the center of town with all the cute shops, galleries, and restaurants. The house is very old, built several hundred years ago, but is very charming and comfortable. Sure, some things could use a bit of updating perhaps, but I thought things were just fine. Breakfast consisted of bread, butter, and cheese and preserves, fruit, juice, coffee and tea. As Vera, the owner stated, its really just to get you started. OveraIl, I believe this is probably the best deal you can get so close to Chatham. I paid $100 for a room with a private bath - an incredible deal. I really hope that more people check out this property and post reveiws soon!
