Classic seaside retreat on Cape Cod with family-friendly activities, comfy rooms and noteworthy eats
Blending a breezy location with buttoned-up service, Wequassett is filled to the brim with New England seaside appeal. Whitewashed buildings and clapboard cottages give the property plenty of charm, while shabby-chic interior spaces feature a palette of soothing neutrals and plenty of comfy spaces to relax.
Bed and Bath
The style of the rooms is coastal chic: white furniture, oversize upholstered chairs, striped wallpaper and shell prints. It’s all very fitting for this seaside spot, where many rooms have waterfront views and a private patio or deck. A fleet of modern touches — indoor gas fireplaces, air-jet soaking tubs, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, Molton Brown amenities and 24-hour room service — only add to the understated luxury.
Kids will love when the resort’s vintage ice cream truck comes calling to hand out free novelties. The new Children’s Center has an impressive pirate ship and an aquatic playground with fountains and water jets. In fact, the resort offers daily summer activities, including tennis, sailing and swimming lessons for adults and kids alike. Guests looking for a quiet spot can head to the adults-only lap pool, which has a view of the resort’s manicured gardens. Later, enjoy sunset cocktails at Outer Bar & Grille or a casual pint at Thoreau’s. Or go upscale at Twenty-eight Atlantic, where eight-foot-tall windows let in the sunset or moonrise. Chef James Hackney’s sophisticated Cape Cod fare includes such dishes as yellowfin tuna and seared duck breast with local fruits. A great glass of wine off the extensive wine list and some good, strong decaf will be all you need to cap off the night — and a chocolate seashell from Chatham Candy Manor will be waiting on your pillow.
In the Area
Known as JFK’s stomping grounds and a hot spot for the elite, Cape Cod is the backdrop for this luxury seaside resort. Spend a few hours or the whole day on the ocean side of Pleasant Bay, at the private Outer Beach, accessible only by the resort’s private shuttle. They’ll even pack a picnic lunch. Or go off-property: One of the resort’s BMW SUVs can whisk guests into the nearby town of Chatham for shopping and wandering. Don't miss the robust cold-brew coffee at Chatham Coffee. Cap off the day with some retail therapy, and stop into the Midsummer Nights boutique for shell lamps, linens, Paul Mayer ballet flats and splashy frocks from such designers as Tory Burch and Joie.
