A Night at the Wequassett.

The Wequassett Resort and Golf Club - Beach

One of my favorite parts of blogging is that there are often fun perks that I can share with my loved ones. When The Wequassett Resort and Golf Club (one of the nicest hotels/resorts on Cape Cod) reached out about a little “staycation” while I was home, I was so excited. I had grown up visiting the property (years ago, when I was a bus-girl at my parents’ restaurant, one of the head waitresses would take us all there for a fancy lunch on their porch to say thank you. I still remember how good their virgin strawberry daiquiris were!!) But I had never actually stayed there. Cape Cod is family time, so I was quite insistent that my mom and sisters would need to join me. (My poor dad had to work at the restaurant as they are a bit short-staffed right now – still figuring out what I can do to treat him!!)

They booked us two (beautiful) adjoining rooms and really rolled out the red carpet for us. I felt like a celebrity! Every single detail was perfect and the property is just so gorgeous. I wanted to stay forever. I showed the room on my snapchat but forgot to take photos with my camera. Let’s just say it was spectacular. Each room had a giant jacuzzi tub, big fluffy beds… even a fireplace.

When we checked into our room, a cheese plate, water, and a nice bottle of Pinot Noir was waiting for us. (This sounds silly but it was like they knew me… I always prefer red wine to white… even in the summer).

A champagne toast… we had the most amazing dinner at the property’s fine dining restaurant, Twenty-Eight Atlantic. My sister and I split the Miso Cod and the steak… both were incredible!

The Wequassett Resort and Golf Club Room Service Breakfast

The next morning (as if we needed it!!!) we ordered a little room service breakfast and sat around like fancy ladies in our robes… enjoying every bite!

After breakfast, we hit the pool, where we had a cabana for the day! It was such a treat and so nice having a shady place to read. I let myself lay out for a little bit and go for a swim in the pool but I am really careful about how much sun I get these days, so I spent most of the day in the shade.

A few poolside necessities… all of the sunscreens, , my fave black sunglasses, my gold birks again and I know I’ve already talked about it here but Big Little Lies was just SO good! It’s one of the best books I’ve read lately – anddd it’s being turned into an HBO series with Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman which I absolutely cannot wait for! Prior to this one I read The Husband’s Secret and I just ordered another book… all by the same author, Liane Moriarty (What Alice Forgot)… I can’t wait to read it, everything she writes is just so good! (She has another one coming out 7/26… of course I pre-ordered it).

And of course I packed my new Lindroth Design bag – so obsessed with it!

Thank you to The Wequassett for an amazing stay!!

    It’s nice to see that you were able to bring your family. Double whammy since you were already in Cape Cod, I believe? Thanks for sharing 🙂
