ABOUT THE RESORT

Over 400 years ago, the Wampanoag Indians were the first to discover the pleasures of summering at Wequassett, swimming and fishing in the Bay’s clear waters, chipping arrowheads from colored stones on the shore, and gathering quahog and periwinkle shells for wampum.

They named the land Wequassett, which means “crescent on the water,” most likely because the sand-spit curves about the Cove are in the crescent shape. In 1665, Sachem John Quason Towsowett sold the land to William Nickerson, who eventually settled the town of Chatham.

Of the 22 historic buildings that comprise the resort, two boast especially noteworthy stories. The Eben Ryder House, known locally as “Square Top,” was actually built in the nearby town of Brewster. In 1907 it was “flaked,” or disassembled, and moved to Wequassett on large flat-bed trucks. Our registration building, the 1740 Warren Jensen Nickerson House, was also transported to its present site.

The property officially opened its doors to guests in 1925 and continued taking “summer boarders” over the years. The property owners retained control of the resort in 1977 and gradually expanded and upgraded the Inn to luxury resort status.

Today, Wequassett hosts visitors from the world over, offering world-class accommodations, dining, and recreational facilities in a relaxed atmosphere with warm personal service.

Wequassett sits prominently atop an east-facing rise affording breathtaking views of Pleasant Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. With whitewashed buildings and tidy clapboard cottages nestled into 27 acres of picture-perfect gardens, sun-dappled lanes, salt marshes and woodlands, the resort is truly a secluded paradise for the discerning traveler.

Guests and flowers alike thrive in our temperate, salty breezes! The landscaped splendor of the resort’s manicured grounds harmonizes with the natural beauty of our shoreline, marshes and woodlands as unique plantings, water gardens, frog pond and meandering brick pathways invite exploration. The changing plantscape celebrates each season, from colorful early spring tulips, azaleas and iris through summer’s beach plums and wild roses to fragrant autumn bayberry and windswept sea grasses.

In every area throughout the resort, we look for ways to implement sustainability initiatives and green hotel practices. Our efforts go beyond standard expectations.
