Chatham Bars Inn Cottages or New Seabury?

Chatham Bars Inn is awesome. It's exclusive and in high demand. It's off the beaten path. The views are gorgeous. It has lots of walkable amenities and gourmet restaurants.

We've been there. We love it too. We highly suggest it.

But, we also get a lot of Chatham Bars Inn clientele, looking for all of that, plus:

- An actual home, with private yards/patios/grills, where they can sprawl out, gather around and host their family reunions or retreats.

- A super-short walk to a direct ocean-facing, private, sandy beach with warm water.

- The ability to cook some of their own meals (yet still have plenty of excellent restaurants to choose from)

- Something closer to the Martha's Vineyard ferry for an easy day-trip to Edgartown.

- Bike and walking trails that wind through a much larger community of over a dozen villages

- A much more cost-effective luxury accommodation (we're not cheap, either, but per-person costs are less and you can cook your own meals).

- Something a lot closer to the mainland that avoids Sagamore Bridge and Route 6 traffic

- An overall experience that's just as great, but different in many ways

Not yet as well known as Chatham Bars Inn, the New Seabury Resort gains more notoriety every year (as it should). The Popponesset Marketplace (3-7 min walk from our homes) and Mashpee Commons continue to expand and flourish - supporting New Seabury's tremendous growth. Spectacular, new multi-million dollar homes continue to go up near the ocean and private golf courses. Fantastic restaurants like Sopranos, Bleu, and The Popponesset Inn & Lure Bar, and The New Seabury Country Club, just to name a few, are now everywhere in town. The 70-mile commute to Boston and Providence, and proximity to new Cape Flyer express rail and thriving Downtown Falmouth have helped made New Seabury a no-compromise luxury destination.

What is New Seabury, exactly? New Seabury is not a hotel resort, per se. It is a "Census Designated Place" , a seaside & golf community, in the town of Mashpee, MA . Its championship golf courses and pools are
