About 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.
