Editor’s Review of Wequassett Resort and Golf Club
The Wampanoag Indians first discovered this hillside property on Cape Cod's Pleasant Bay over 400 years ago. They pitched wigwams, chipped arrowheads, swam in the bay's clear waters and named the place Wequassett, which means "crescent on the water" most likely because of the crescent-shaped sandy curves around the coves.
Wequassett didn't officially begin taking "summer boarders" until 1925. The resort's current owners purchased the property in 1977 and have been expanding and upgrading it to the luxury resort that it has become ever since. Wequassett is Cape Cod's only member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, a prestigious brand that represents more than 100 independently owned luxury hotels and resorts worldwide.
The 27-acre property located on the "elbow" of Cape Cod is lovely in an understated, casually elegant sort of way, much like Cape Cod itself. The 120 rooms and suites are located in clusters of clapboard cottages that take their names from nature in New England (Daffodil, Hydrangea, Cranberry and Azalea). Each cottage has its own patios and balconies that overlook the bay and the immaculately manicured gardens. One could picture a young Kennedy family hanging out on their boats, dressed in polo shirts, and taking a break to toss the football on the small Kelly-green lawns. In fact, our boys enjoyed doing just that, a simple morning spent tossing a ball on the lawn overlooking the harbor (albeit not in polo shirts) while my husband and I sipped coffee and read the morning paper on our stone patio. Wequassett makes for an elegantly old-fashioned vacation. less

Cottage Style rooms are an even larger 505 square feet and feature fireplaces, oversized tubs and separate showers. Signature Waterside and Waterview add things like outdoor stone fireplaces, lavish marble baths and large outdoor patios or balconies. The unique two-bedroom Tulip Cottage is set off down an arbor path and has a fully-equipped kitchen. Be sure to look at the accommodations section of the website. It has wonderfully ... more detailed listings of each category's room amenities, as well as floor plans for each.
Many of the rooms and suites were recently renovated and look like something out of the pages of Coastal Living magazine, with white wood shuttered windows, flat-screen TVs above fireplaces, creamy white wainscoted trim, closets with a built in dresser and shelves, and super comfortable beds.
Some categories have marble bathrooms that include an oversized tub with a silver wire tray that spans the width of the tub to hold a glass of wine and/or book and separate showers that have "rain" and handheld shower heads.
Outdoors, most rooms and suites feature a patio or balcony, many of which have either a gas fire pit or full outdoor stone fireplace, all nicely landscaped to maximize privacy.
In addition, each room has a small refrigerator, room safe, coffee maker, waffle weave robes with soft linings, iPod docking stations, and a mini-flashlight to use when walking around the grounds (or reading at night when the kids are sleeping near you). Nice touch: A hidden ironing board folds out from a wainscoted wall and reveals not only an iron but spray starch and a lint roller too.
Families can request cribs at no extra charge. Rollaway beds and complimentary wireless access are also available
Request a room in "New Dawn," "Morning Glory" or "Lavender" if you want to be a short walk to the pool; rooms in "Rose," "Queen Anne's Lace" and "Petunia" are all set away from the bay and close to tennis and the children's center.
One caveat: For a resort that is trying to cater more to kids, they missed the boat when it came to TV programming their new high-tech rooms. In these rooms you can program your lights, set an alarm and order services all through your flat-screen; but kid-friendly TV channels like PBS, Disney or Nickelodeon are not available. However, you can ask the concierge for a DVD player (a basket of movies will be brought with it, gratis). Also, there are no self-service laundry facilities at the resort. less
