Wequassett Resort & Golf Club

Cape Cod, New England

The hotel

Cape Cod’s customary clapboard meets chic styling at Wequassett Resort And Golf Club. One of the few retreats to gain Forbes Travel Guide’s sought-after 5 stars, and the Cape’s only member of the luxury club Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, a stay here is something very special. You’ll find Cape Cod’s natural beauty at its very best, with two beaches, flowering meadows, salt marshes and woods, and endless views from Pleasant Bay into the Atlantic. But you also get some decidedly manmade beauties too, like Adirondack chairs around fire pits, all manner of water sports and boating diversions, tennis, exclusive access to the neighbouring golf club, an incredible infinity pool and lap pool, a pirate ship and aqua playground, and fabulous food in the form of four dining experiences, from casual deck dinners to gourmet waterfront meals.

Quaint Resort very close to the sea. Excellent food and service. Enjoyed breakfast next to windows looking out into the bay....just delightful! Rooms are adequate with small bedroom area but you get to have a sitting area outside the bedroom to stretch out to enjoy TV, the fireplace and an outdoor patio

This is my favorite New England Resort. The views are beautiful; the service is excellent and the attention given to detail is beyond professional. I have come back to Wequassett every year for the past five and have never been bored nor disappointed.

We enjoyed a quiet couple of days in a beautiful big suite — thank-you, Dan, for the upgrade! Impressive property, terrific staff, and the great energy of longtime guests and multi-generational families having a great time. Sweet — and easy!
