Best of Boston

2011 Best Hotel Resort, Cape Cod

Wequassett Resort and Golf Club

Based solely on the coolness of its bayside pool, Wequassett would swim away with this prize. But it also excels in every other way: The cozy cottage accommodations feel like the Cape of yore (albeit with Molton Brown toiletries and nightly turndown service); prime Signature rooms have fireplaces and unmatched water views. And then there’s the exquisite golf course. The outdoor bar. The laid-back yet attentive staff. Need we go on?
