Wequassett Resort & Golf Club – Chatham, Massachusetts

REVIEW:

Whether you are a discerning golfer or a vacationer looking for a top-drawer experience, we have the picture-perfect spot for you. Nestled in the Pleasant Bay area of Chatham, Massachusetts, Wequassett Resort is a classic beauty with a poolscape fit for the Caribbean and upscale hotel rooms and suites designed to delight, with modern Cape Cod style.

This well-earned five-star resort boasts the best of the best including five dining options – both formal and informal, four tennis courts, an 18-hole championship golf course, and boating and water sports including instructional sailing.  Two pools on the property as well as two beaches, including the resort’s private beach of Clam Point, provide for plenty of swimming opportunities for guests. Wisely, one of the pools is adult-only for swimming laps.

Additionally, wedding facilities are available and with this stunning resort and Pleasant Bay as a backdrop, wedding parties can be assured of gorgeous photos and an unforgettable time.

Truly, this place has it all so once you arrive so there’s no need to leave the 27-acre property in order to go elsewhere.   However, if you’re in the mood to try a different golf course or perhaps take a shopping excursion to the boutiques of town, the resort conveniently offers van services to take guests where they wish to go.  It also provides bicycles for guests that might be in the mood to bike around the property.

Ready to be dazzled? Then wait till you see the rooms.  Accommodations at Wequassett are comprised of 120 luxurious and individually decorated suites, all with private balconies or patios, located within individual cottages or villas dotting the waterfront for impeccable views.  Rooms are modern and beautifully furnished as well as immaculately clean.  Surely, housekeeping is to be commended for their ongoing efforts and goal of perfection.  Wherever available, second-floor accommodations are preferable not only for the view but also to forego any noise on the ground floor.

For parents or perhaps grandparents vacationing with young children, Wequassett Resort features a kid’s club during the peak summer months of July and August so adult guests can rest assured that their little ones are busy, happy and well looked after during a round of golf or an afternoon in town.

As one would expect with an upscale Cape Cod resort, the Wequassett is costly with an average ‘nightly’ stay ranging in price between $600-$1500 during peak season, depending on whether you opt for a garden or water view, or a room as opposed to a suite.  Either way, you can’t go wrong.

Meals are not included and also lean toward the pricey side whether dining formally or informally. Nevertheless, the food the scrumptious and the service is top notch and altogether in keeping with the standards upheld by the rest of the resort.

PROS:  Location offers gorgeous views and a feeling of seclusion.  The resort is clean and well-maintained. Rooms are charming and spacious. Plenty of on-site amenities.  Food is top notch and service is first rate. 

CONS:  Rates are very high, the kind you would expect at an all-inclusive resort.  The atmosphere is one of an elite club, guests seeking a more subtle experience might feel out of place here. 

If you are a traveler that can afford the price tag associated with Wequassett, you won’t be disappointed. With superior service and a bright, modern and well-equipped complex, this place is designed to delight, pamper and please, from the moment you enter the lobby to check in.

    Very beautiful resort but looks a little too “stuffy” to be fun.
