Overall 5/5 because you cannot beat the price of the Bow Roof House for the location & the service!!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week in June. If you're just looking for a place to put your things and have a comfortable sleep with a bathroom, this is the place for you! Vera, the owner, is 92 and does a great job of changing the sheets & towels daily. She provides a standard continental breakfast that she serves to you. Take the time to talk to her during breakfast, she's very sweet!! Wifi is good too. The only drawback is that she doesn't have air conditioning, but the nights on the cape get cool so it wasn't an issue for us. She does give you a good fan, which also helped!

Excellent location -- very close to Oyster Pond (public beach), close walk to town (less than 5 minutes) and the baseball field.

I booked this last minute for a spontaneous weekend getaway to the Cape. Vera was so accommodating with my last minute booking and also let me arrive and settle in early (before the check-in time noted). She is very sweet and you can tell she loves what she does!

The house itself is very charming and old fashioned. My room was comfortable & clean and the beds were great. If you're looking for a 5 star spa retreat, this is not the place for you. But I spent very little time at the house since there was so much I wanted to cram into my trip. The location was IDEAL for that! It's very close to downtown shopping & restaurants and walking distance to the beach as well. The weather wasn't great when I was in town but I noticed there was a nice outdoor space with a swing at the house that would be a great place to relax when the weather is better.

I did not eat breakfast at the house so I cannot comment on that. I did see lots of guests there enjoying breakfast around the table.

We were in town visiting family and stayed overnight. Very comfortable beds and cozy room. Enjoyed a relaxing breakfast talking with other guests. Vera is so pleasant and friendly. Met her son, daughter in law and grandsons. Nice family atmosphere and Cape Cod charm. Would highly recommend!

A family operated establishment full of charm and community. Breakfast in the morning is an amazing experience, you get to share a cup of coffee with other travelers and discuss plans and recommendations. The rooms are full of charm and are incredibly clean. The deck is a great place to sit and read or relax. Walking distance from various restaurants and shops. The owner Vera is charming and funny and always has a good suggestion for a restaurant or beach. I would recommend this place to anyone!

I returned last year to the Bow Roof House after an absence of many years since I stayed there several times over a four year period some 30 years ago, and have just made a second repeat visit this September 2014. The appeals of this charming establishment remain unchanged - except the building has been updated somewhat. The interior is genuine old Cape Cod with elegant rustic furniture throughout, the bedrooms are all different in style and shape, but attractive and comfortable, the communal living room with TV filled with knick-knacks, and there is a pleasant shade tree sheltering the outside deck . Vera, the venerable owner has run the place for over forty years, is a Chatham treasure, with her quirky sense of humour, and an encyclopedic memory of previous guests (many of whom are repeat visitors) which makes it heartwarming for her guests to be so well remembered. It feels more like staying with family than a commercial establishment. Stay here - you won't be sorry. And you will be welcomed back and remembered by Vera if you visit again. Compared to the impersonality of modern establishments, a stay at the Bow Roof House will make you feel you are having a true Cape Cod experience.

Room tip: All the rooms on both floors are very pleasant - the only difference being that some are slightly more spacious
