Bow Roof House
Ranked #8 of 9 Chatham B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 September 2013

We couldn't have wanted for more at this charming, historic house. Vera, the owner, is a fantastic, accommodating host. Bow Roof House is very clean and we had an enormous bed. Breakfast is a chatty affair. Situated a few moments from the centre of beautiful Chatham, this made an excellent base from which to explore the Cape and the islands.

Room Tip: Room three had a very big king size bed with ensuite shower room.

I found this B and B the best that I've ever stayed at in Chatham. The rooms are very clean and nice. The beds are very comfortable also! There is a TV in the Living room that is open all the time, there is also a patio outside with a great breeze and spot. The breakfast is good and Vera's hospitality is great! For the price you pay to stay at the Bow Roof House it's definitely worth it!

Ps..... The Bow Roof is located only 3 minutes from Oyster Pond and 5-7 minutes from the center of Town!

The Bow Roof House is one of my favorite places I have ever stayed and I will stay there whenever I visit Chatham for the rest of my life or as long as it stays open, whichever happens first! It is run by a smart, kind, and sassy Grandma named Vera and she will tell you great stories. That alone is the reason why you travel! We were travelling in a group of three and found a great room at a steal of a price, which is rare on the Cape as you know. The room was large and clean and comfortable, with great lighting and a fireplace with a bread oven next to it! (The house is an old captain's house from the 18th century.) There is a fireplace in the large bathroom as well. The shower had terrific water pressure (yessssssssssss). It is an easy walk to downtown Chatham. Breakfast was fruit, percolated coffee, Portuguese rolls with marmalade, peanut butter, and jam. Bow Roof House makes me grin to think about it. This is a wonderful place and you will want to come back many times. Stay here for your *soul*. :)

Stayed there last summer with my husband when we were desperate to find last minute accommodation in the cape. It was one of the only options left and also one of the cheapest one (100USD a night high season). We decided to give it a try but were a bit apprehensive... What a great surprise! Old style captain house, old style decor, but so warm and friendly. Definitely excellent value for money. Very clean and excellent breakfast by the way. Well don't go there if you are looking for fancy and luxury, but that's the place to go if you are looking for authentic, local and welcoming.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor (first room on left when you enter the house) and were happy with it. We also...

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!
