The Wauwinet

120 Wauwinet Rd., Wauwinet, Massachusetts, 02584, USA

This resplendently updated 1850 resort straddles a "haulover" poised between ocean and bay (think beaches on both sides), and you can head out by complimentary van or launch to enjoy ultimate pampering (the staff-to-guest ratio exceeds one-to-one). Optional activities include sailing, launches to a private beach along Coatue, and driving tours of the Great Point nature preserve. Of course, it's tempting just to stay put, what with cushy country-chic guest rooms (lavish with Pratesi linens) and a splendid restaurant, Topper's.

PROS

  • solicitous staff
  • dual beaches
  • peaceful setting

CONS

  • not for those with small children
  • distance from town
  • overly chichi
