1. Breakfast is served in a pirate ship

Not only does the breakfast buffet at The Wequassett offer a separate kids buffet, filled with kid-friendly favorites like silver dollar pancakes and Froot Loops, it’s served in a pirate ship! Every morning there’s a friendly staffer dressed in a pirate costume who greets the kids as they enter.

2. A pool with gorgeous ocean views

The family pool is elevated, offering gorgeous views of Pleasant Bay, Round Cove and the ocean beyond. To really maximize your experience, book one of the private cabanas.

3. A kids club like none you’ve ever seen

Forget everything you know about resort kids clubs. The Children’s Center at The Wequassett is spectacular. Not only is there a fabulous pirate ship playground and splash pad, the programming is truly innovative. Each day has a different theme (pirate treasure hunt, chef for a day) that incorporates both education and fun.

4. The Cape Cod National Seashore

The Wequassett’s location is one of its greatest assets. The resort partners with local providers to offer guided tours and boat charters so you can explore the coast of Cape Cod and the famous Cape Cod National Seashore.

5. Milk and cookies and other kids’ surprises

The Wequassett goes out of its way to make kids feel welcomed. Upon arrival, there was a lovely fruit platter waiting for us, along with some yummy cookies for our girls. To go a step beyond, they even left two glasses of milk in the fridge for the girls to enjoy with their cookies! This was just the start of surprises. Throughout our stay, we would return to our room to find surprise gifts for the girls: everything from story books to kites.

6. The seal watching tour

One can’t-miss experience is to take a private seal-watching tour of Chatham Harbor and the surrounding sand dunes. This area has one of the largest populations of gray and harbor seals in North America, and your kids will absolutely love seeing them in their natural habitat.

7. The delicious Bellini

One of my favorite parts of our stay was sipping on a Bellini, taking in the gorgeous views by the pool. It’s not just the Bellini that’s good though, all the cocktails at The Wequassett are well-crafted.

8. A pirate ship ball pit

Every kid loves throwing themselves into a ball pit. But when that ball pit is inside a pirate ship? It’s that much better.

9. This adorable tote bag

The gift shop at The Wequassett has so many irresistible items for sale. Like, how cute is this toddler-sized tote bag emblazoned with the hotel’s logo? Our girls loved getting to pick a souvenir to remember their stay.

10. An extensive children’s menu

Our girls loved the options offered by the children’s menu at The Wequassett. It’s chock-full of kid-approved classics like chicken tenders and plain pasta (I still don’t get why my girls love this dish so much). But it also has options for more adventurous eaters, like clam chowder, mesclun salad and grilled salmon.
