Fodor's Expert Review The Wauwinet

120 Wauwinet Rd., Wauwinet, Massachusetts, 02584, USA Fodor's Choice

This resplendently updated 1850 resort straddles a "haulover" poised between ocean and bay (think beaches on both sides); it features cushy country-chic guest rooms (lavish with Pratesi linens) and a splendid restaurant, Topper's. Guests can take advantage of activities like sailing, launches to a private beach,, and driving tours of the Great Point nature preserve.

  • solicitous staff
  • dual beaches
  • peaceful setting
  • the staff-to-guest ratio exceeds one-to-one

CONS

  • overly chichi
