For some inexplicable reason, she said "Yes". And by some guiding Providence we chose Wequassett to say "I do".
What a beautiful, beautiful property. THIS is Cape Cod at its finest. Stunning landscaping, sweeping vistas, impeccable accommodations, stellar service. This type of pampering doesn't come cheap (we were told we got a "deal" at $1,200/night) - but when you want the very best you don't bargain.
The hydrangea! Unbelievable. Yes, the Cape is renowned for this majestic shrub and the Wequassett is the epicenter of its beauty. Even if you aren't staying here, come by, park and walk around for a bit. Wow.
We had the somewhat unique opportunity to sample two different rooms (#13 and #43) and both were awesome. Unobstructed, panoramic ocean views + great privacy. Of the two, I'd give the nod to #43 by a nose. Just a bit more private and you can leave your blinds open all the time because the room is situated perfectly so that only the gulls can see you. Yet 13 felt larger because it was a one room suite whereas 43 was two - but the square footage was probably the same in both rooms.
Pros: Natural beauty, landscaping, clean, new, bright, high-end accommodations, smiling helpful staff, great on-site restaurant and bar, direct waterfront location, wonderful pool. I could go on but you get the gist.
Cons: not many. Pricey (but worth it). Some other reviewers have mentioned that sound travels from the upper units to the lower units - yes, true. Wood frame construction transmits even the sound of upstairs guests opening and closing the drawers. Kids - I was a bit surprised at how many there were (at this price range). It was a little noisy at the pool but not unduly. Now my wife and I have 5 kids between us so maybe we were looking for a complete respite but other than at the pool it was very, very quite.
I'm confident that you'll agree that the Wequassett is perfect.
