Questions about Our Cape Cod Hotel and the Chatham area?

Our local staff has the answers

How far is the closest beach? 

The nearest swimming beach to Pleasant Bay Village Resort is just under a third of a mile. It is a small beach on the peaceful waters of Pleasant Bay called Jacknife Beach. This nearby beach has free parking and also offers a quiet river for canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding. In addition, Chatham is surrounded by water on three sides, so there are also several other beaches within a 10-minute drive.

Can you walk to the closest beach from Pleasant Bay Village Resort?

Although Jacknife Beach is just a short distance away, we do not recommend walking because there are no sidewalks. Since this could be dangerous and there is free parking at the beach, we recommend that you drive.

What other beaches do you recommend in Chatham?

Lighthouse Beach in Chatham is a beautiful beach and probably the most popular. Hardings Beach and Ridgevale Beach are also very nice beaches to the south on Nantucket Sound.

How far is the closest ocean beach? 

Lighthouse Beach, where Pleasant Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean, is approximately 3.5 miles away. Although very picturesque and scenic, parking is limited to only 30 minutes. If you are looking to spend the day at an ocean beach, we recommend going to Nauset Beach in Orleans.

Do we have to pay to go to the beach in Cape Cod?

Almost every town also offers at least one “free beach.” The front desk staff has all the secrets about the free beaches and is happy to share them with you when you are our guest.

Check in is any time after 3pm. If you will be arriving after 11pm, please contact the front desk (508-945-6061). We will do our best to accommodate early check in requests made BEFORE arrival and ask for your understanding that sometimes this cannot be accomplished because of the cleaning and vacancy procedures we have implemented to keep everyone safe. Check out is by 11am.

Is there free Wi-Fi at the hotel?

Yes, wireless Internet is available in all guest rooms, free of charge.

Do you have a gym? 

While we do not have a gym, there are a few local gyms that offer day passes; check with the front office. Also there is a great running or walking route across the street on Foxhill Road. It is a quiet residential neighborhood with elevated views of Pleasant Bay and Eastward Ho! County club. It’s a 5k run/walk to the end of Strong Island Rroad and back with a few challenging hills.

How long does it take to drive to Provincetown?

It is about 1 hour. With summer traffic, especially on rainy days, it could take longer.

How do you get to Nantucket and or Martha’s Vineyard, and do I need to take my car?

Generally, for a day trip to the islands you do not need a car. There is great public transportation on the islands plus many options for livery services, bike, moped and car rentals. There is seasonal passenger service with a limited number of trips to Nantucket from Harwichport about a 15-minute drive away. From Hyannis (½-hour drive) ferries go to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket on a more regular service throughout the day. The last option is to drive to Falmouth (a little over an hour drive) to take a short boat trip to Martha’s Vineyard.
