It began as a positive stay in the Chanderly Starboard room. But when our neighbors moved in with their unruly children, it made for what began as a peaceful stay, a miserable one. Unfortunately, the weather didn't help our predicament as it rained from August 12 through most of the following day...when we were scheduled to check out.
We didn't tell management about it because we were leaving, but had we stayed an additional day, we have would indicated the inconvenience to management - especially for the amount of money we were paying for the weekend.
However, we did let our neighbors know that we didn't appreciate the unecessary noise and might consider being more considerate since we were sharing a wall.
However, our hosts for breakfast were wonderful and warm and the food was great. We appreciated their hospitality. We loved the property, but not the town. We weren't made to feel very welcome and unfortunately, as an African American couple, we find that not all towns in America - in the "liberal" north or boisterous south - are accommodating to people like us.
We didn't get a chance to visit Martha's Vineyard where many of AAs vacation, but we found the people in Wellfleet and Provincetown to be much warmer and genuine towards us. But we will never go back to Chatham where we encountered some of the meanest, most entitled people we've ever had to share air with. It was quite unfortunate.
Cape Cod is beautiful, but choose your city wisely or it could make for a very uncomfortable experience - especially if you're a person of color.
