Keep it cool and casual at this “anti” country club in Cape Cod.
Chequessett is everything you love about the Cape without the fuss! A super-relaxed vibe, golf course and waterfront views, and the friendliest staff make it ideal for your wedding, reunion or charity event.
The Lowdown Venue Setting
If you seek a relaxed waterfront setting to host your next function, whether it be a wedding, commitment ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner, anniversary or private party, Chequessett is the place for you!
Our working boathouse, Clubhouse and private bayside beach are all available for special events. At the clubhouse, the spacious 1,800 square foot deck is tented and overlooks the 9th hole of the golf course, while the main dining room features exposed beams, high ceilings, newly finished hardwood floors, a large decorative fireplace, and spectacular views of Wellfleet Bay. The clubhouse also features a commercial grade kitchen, and both inside and outside bars.
Our beach area is available for private ceremonies at no additional fee. Couples frequently exchange vows with the backdrop of the bay, Great Island, and sailboats blissfully playing in the wind.
Chequessett’s working Boathouse offers a casual Cape Cod alternative for those seeking a more relaxed atmosphere for their gathering. The Boathouse is a large open room with exposed beams and a wooden floor, ideal for dancing—and it boasts a 60’ deck running parallel to the nearby shoreline. Chequessett is proud to offer, in addition to its full bar, an extensive wine list to fit any budget. Our vast network of contacts in the community proves invaluable in providing assistance with special requests ranging from music, caterers, flowers and tents to the freshest seafood in town. Fees

Over the years, many couples have discovered Chequessett Yacht & Country Club as the ideal location to have an authentic Cape Cod wedding. While “Yacht and Country Club” may conjure visions of someplace prim and formal, nothing could be further from that at this laid-back seaside wedding venue. If you seek a relaxed setting to host your next function, whether it be a wedding, commitment ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner, anniversary or private party, we may be the place for you!
Just imagine beginning your event with your ceremony on our private beach with the picturesque backdrop of Wellfleet Bay. Then moving into the rustic Boathouse for cocktail hour, with a raw bar on the tented deck and beach games in the boatyard. For dinner, stroll a few steps up to the tented clubhouse deck where your guests will enjoy sunset views overlooking the 9th fairway. Finally, finish up the evening with dancing and cake in the Boathouse, possibly even a stroll down a moonlit beach.
Design: Built in the 1920's, Chequessett's Clubhouse and Boathouse offer a rustic and relaxed vibe suited for any taste. And with two venues to choose from, every couple will find their perfect site here.
Both venues, overlook Wellfleet Harbor and Cape Cod Bay. Our unique South-facing site offers views of the entire Upper and Lower Cape Cod. Photographers regularly refer their clients to our private beach for their wedding photos, and the Boathouse's vast deck provides a backdrop that will amaze your guests.
The Clubhouse offers exposed beams, high ceilings, and newly finished wooden floors. Along with the harbor, the Clubhouse overlooks the 9th hole of our Cape Cod golf course, providing a more traditional Country Club backdrop for your reception. Host your dinner on our Clubhouse deck and your guests will be able to enjoy the sunset as they dine.
The Boathouse offers a more "barn-style" feel in a more casual setting, with exposed beams, barn-board walls, and an unfinished wooden floor perfect for dancing the night away. Standout Venue Features: Chequessett is proud to offer an extensive wine list to fit any budget. And our vast network of contacts in the community proves invaluable in providing assistance with special requests ranging from music, caterers, and flowers, to the freshest seafood in town.
We offer many different packages depending upon your event needs and are not an all-inclusive venue, making it the ideal location for your own Cape Cod Wedding. Extra Perks: All packages come with custom tents that cover both the Clubhouse and Boathouse decks, a variety of tables and chairs to choose from, and our private beach for your ceremony free of charge. Packages also include facility staff, including bartenders and event coordinators, use of our commercial-grade kitchen for catering staff, as well as a 4-hour police detail should Chequessett management deem one is necessary.
