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.
How to Get There
Really enjoyed our stay. Very high-end service, engaged staff. The restaurants (both casual and formal) were top-notch - exceeded expectations.
First room we were allocated was musty and we were quickly upgraded to a newly renovated room.
Our final stop after touring in New England, and it really was a great place to stay. The staff were all so helpful, friendly and efficient. There was a complimentary chauffeur service available to take us to restaurants in Chatham, a few miles away, which was very much appreciated.
Our room was lovely - very spacious (2 queen size beds and still lots of room), warm (which is often not the case in a hotel room) and with really comfortable beds. We couldn't get the shower to work on our first day and when we rang for help, someone was there within 3/4 minutes.
We didn't eat in the hotel, though did have drinks in the bar and the barman (Victor) was really friendly.
Unfortunately, while there, we had a sub-tropical storm which meant that due to the wind and rain, ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket were cancelled, which was a big disappointment. However, it was so good to be able to go out in the car to see other places during the day and have a lovely, comfortable room to come back to.
The weather conditions also prevented us from being able to enjoy the outside areas at the hotel, which was a shame, but despite the weather we really enjoyed our stay at Wequassett.
The Wequasset Resort and Golf Club is first class and we love dining in all their restaurants. This occasion was a family dinner. Twenty-Eight Atlantic is a true
Four-Star, Four-Diamond premier dining experience. This is the resort’s signature restaurant and enjoys the highest ratings on Cape Cod from Forbes, AAA and Zagat. There is a dress code in place of jacket and dress pants for men and dress or pants for ladies.
The dining room is beautifully appointed and the service is four star! Everything was perfect from being welcomed to the restaurant to confirm our reservation. to the wonderful waitstaff. We were seated by the windows with a beautiful view. Everyone loved their entrees which were surf and turf and assorted seafood dishes.
The experience at the Wequassett was a true four star!
