Over the weekend I made the trek down to Cape Cod again for another wedding, this time staying in Harwich at the beautiful Wequassett Resort & Golf Club. Michael was unable to join me for this little Map & Menu adventure, but it was such a whirlwind trip, I didn’t even have too much time to miss him.
I arrived on Friday afternoon pretty much right after I was allowed to check-in, as I knew I wanted to enjoy the property as much as I could before departing the next morning for my wedding in nearby Harwich Port. The resort is comprised of 22 historic buildings & cottages, all of which are scattered throughout 27 acres of lovely landscaped gardens & woodlands, overlooking Pleasant Bay. My room was located in the Orchid Building, which happened to be quite close to the resort’s restaurants, beach access, and the main pool. As is often the case after I arrive at a hotel room, I squealed with delight upon walking through the door, and I eagerly began assembling my camera to photograph my charming garden view room. The room itself, much larger than I’d imagined it would be, was very ‘Cape Cod’ with its nautical red, blue, and white accents, affording a very cozy, yet upscale, cottage-like feel.
After a three and a half hour car ride, I was looking forward to stretching my legs a bit, so I set out to explore as much of the property’s 27 acres that I possibly could. The view overlooking Pleasant Bay is quite beautiful and, almost immediately, I felt a sense of tranquility just being there that very moment, looking out over the boats in the water. I continued my walk along the bay, around to the tennis courts and adult lap pool, and finished back up at the main pool adjacent to the beach, still giddy with excitement that I had the opportunity to stay here, even if only for one night.
I look forward to returning to Wequassett with Michael for his first visit – it’s too special of a place not to want to share with him! I can only imagine how relaxing an entire weekend (or long weekend!) spent at the resort would be. Perhaps we’ll need to plan another visit, once wedding season is over for me, to enjoy a little pampering at this fantastic property!
