Chequessett Club is a truly remarkable wedding venue, conveniently located just up the street from my parents’ house! As they are members of the club, I have enjoyed countless hours at the beach and on the golf course. The venue offers a breathtaking view of Wellfleet Harbor and Great Island, which becomes even more stunning during sunset, especially at low tide.
Chequessett Club Wedding Locations
When it comes to wedding locations, Chequessett Club has it all. The clubhouse and a 9-hole golf course are situated on the inland side of the road, while on the oceanside, you’ll find a private beach, boathouse, and boatyard. Not only is it one of the few wedding venues in Wellfleet, but it is also among the very few on Cape Cod that provide the unique option of a beachfront wedding ceremony.
The private beach at Chequessett Club is an ideal setting for a beach wedding ceremony or for capturing beautiful wedding photos. Although the beach narrows at high tide, it expands significantly as the tide recedes, revealing stunning tidal flats and reflecting pools that add a magical touch to your photos. Additionally, picturesque sailboats are usually moored there, and a short walk down the beach is the historic Elephant House, a charming backdrop for photos.
Just above the private beach is an elevated area surrounded by beach roses, where boats are stored at Chequessett Yacht Club. This location offers a panoramic view of Wellfleet Harbor and Great Island, making it another excellent spot for capturing memorable wedding photos. You’ll also have the opportunity to get up close and personal with some colorful boats, adding a unique touch to your album.
The rustic Boathouse at Chequessett Club is a major highlight of this Cape Cod wedding venue. While it may be small in size, it boasts absolutely incredible views. The Boathouse is spacious enough to host a cocktail hour, a small wedding reception, or even dancing and cake cutting. A large covered deck extends along the length of the building, providing a stunning view of the bay. Moreover, an additional deck area has recently been added to the left side of the building. To access the beach, a beautiful boardwalk and a set of stairs lead directly from the Boathouse.
For those considering the Clubhouse, Chequessett Club also offers that option. The Clubhouse features a large tented deck at the back, overlooking the golf course. This spacious area can accommodate larger wedding parties and serves as an ideal location for dinner seating.
