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
I went here with friends to sit out on the gorgeous patio bar. There is even a pool for the kids to swim in. We had a couple of cocktails there with a spectacular view and then went inside to the restaurant. The food was delicious.
World class / Cape quaintness. The best of expectations for my family and friends during our annual getaway. The views, the food, the room, the service - not to be equaled. The pool area alone is worth a visit with its relaxing settings, great food and outstanding service. The kids had the best time being entertained by pirates and visited by a Good Humor ice cream truck. Tennis Sunday morning on the Fabulous clay courts can’t be beat. Dinner at 28 Atlantic was the best example of what a fine dining experience, anywhere, is all about. I’ll be back.
A big thank you to Chef James and his kitchen staff for the organic meals prepared.
The food for adults and children was excellent and there was no need to go off the resort for a meal.
Also, a thanks to the staff for setting up a crib and thoughtful and surprising amenities for the children throughout our stay - much appreciated!
Thank you again so very much and please share the regards with your staff!
What an amazing stay at a wonderful location. Staff is outstanding, suites are amazing, food is delicious ! What more can anyone say? My twin grandchildren came with their parents to have lunch with us and the waiter brought over two stuffed animal lobsters for them! Obviously this was a great stay! Did I forget to mention the ice cream break at the pool?
Return visits are a must!
This place has it all! The resort grounds are serene and it's location on the bay gives it a peaceful calm. Our suite was impeccable but what was most impressive was the attentive staff. They made us, including our two children, welcome and comfortable. There is a children's center with a secluded play area that was unexpected. The pool overlooks the bay and there are three options for dining. There are also many family activities they offer including a seal watch. Absolutely delightful!
