Cape Cod has always ranked among New England’s most charming and romantic getaways. The beacon of this sandy arm flexed into the sea is Wequassett, a refined getaway on the elbow of the Cape that has expanded its lavish facilities over the past few years. Situated on 27 acres of salt marsh and piney woodlands, the resort’s cozy weathered cottages and beautifully appointed suites, spaced along a bluff, offer panoramic views of Pleasant Bay and the Atlantic Ocean from their private decks and patios. Go formal at the nautical-themed Twenty-eight Atlantic, its superb New American cuisine and waterfront views worth writing home about, or go casual at the open-air Outer Bar & Grille (the clam chowder and lobster rolls are delicious). On a calm summer night, enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on an intimate sunset cruise. Golfers can tee it up at otherwise-private Cape Cod National, a rolling, well-groomed layout marked by glacial landforms, cranberry bogs, and fields of wispy bluestem that wave in the sea breeze.
