Spread over 429 acres, the Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club is a full-service beachfront golf and tennis resort where guests and club members play the $8.5 million Nicklaus design golf course, hit balls on one of the tennis courts and take a dip in any of the handful of pools. Accommodation is split between the sprawling Village section and the crown-jewel Mansion enclave, which once was the home of Brewster native Samuel Nickerson and played host to legendary Gilded Age soirees. The building sports gorgeous carved-wood ceilings, a grand staircase, gorgeous leaded glass windows and sweeping views across Cape Cod Bay.
Bed and Bath
After the $40 million overhaul in 2012, all of the 90 rooms on the Mansion side of the resort have been completely redone in a clean, modern beach style, with rattan chairs, comfortable bedding and spacious dressing areas. The large guestrooms have tufted leather ottomans, with pull-out couches in many rooms. Elaborate entertainment centers house flat-screen TVs, games and lovely photograph collections from the Cape. Bathrooms are more low-key, with white floor tiles, wainscoting, oversize stall showers and high-end toiletries.
With numerous tennis courts, rental bikes at the ready and plenty of tee times at the private golf course, Ocean Edge appeals to active types. Don’t miss the beachside yoga in the warm months or pump some iron in the fitness center year-round. Parents looking for a bit of alone time can sign kids up for the daily sports camps, or gather their brood for weekly movie nights and s’mores sessions on the beach. Things heat up at night at the sunset-ready Ocean Terrace, where guests sip cocktails and nibble on the hotel’s signature crab cakes, while tavern-style Bayzo’s dishes up hearty pub grub (fried calamari, fish tacos, mac ’n’ cheese and more) and hosts live music nights.
In the Area
The drive along Route 6A is a lovely escape from the Mid-Cape roadways and is dotted with farm stands, galleries and unique local shops like the Strawberry Patch, where you can pick up quilts, baby clothes and other handmade goods. There’s also easy access to the 26-mile Bike & Rail Trail, which winds its way north up the arm of the Cape toward Provincetown. For a bit of culture, plan a stop at the Cape Cod Museum of Art to wander through its sculpture garden, or head to the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History and bring the kids for a guided nature walk around the 300 acres of conservation land surrounding the museum. On the dining front, get your fried clam fix at the Sesuit Harbor Cafe (it can get pretty crowded), or go all out for dinner at Fin, in nearby Dennis, where the oyster chowder may be the best you’ve ever tasted.
How to Get There
I recently got married in the Carriage House at Ocean Edge and had a wonderful experience. My family has owned a condo at OE for many years and my brother got married in the ballroom a few years ago. So in terms of service, I had a feeling it would be pretty good. However, my wedding coordinator and the other staff involved exceeded my expectations. My coordinator was Chase and on the day of my wedding Courtney also helped. Chase was very organized and timely in his communication with me. He paid close attention to detail and accommodated all of my requests. I had my rehearsal dinner in the mansion, a bonfire on the beach that night, my ceremony on the lawn, cocktail hour on the Carriage House Terrace, and reception at the Carriage House. My bridal party and I got ready in the Ocean Edge Room right next to the Carriage House. Everything was convenient for my guests and I. The food was delicious and of course the scenery was gorgeous! The day went off without a hitch and was absolutely perfect, I cannot thank Ocean Edge enough!
Beautiful views and amazing drinks at the beach bar with friends! The staff was friendly, fun and attentive! Our bar tenders were Eoin, Jovaria, and Iovana. We are getting married here in September 2019 and i would be ecstatic to have any of them work at our wedding.
One of my best friends got married in the carriage house and it was unbelievably beautiful. Being in the wedding party my main concern is keeping the bride happy and man was she! Coutney helped coordinate everything and it couldn’t have gone smoother. With the help of Sergiu, Elina, and Monica everyone was taken care of so well. The bartender Anastas was AMAZING. I would 100% recommend this place to others
We stayed here for a dear friends wedding reception. Everyone was so nice and willing to help. Our room was well appointed and had everything we could possibly think of. We were just a short stroll to the beach and beach bar and there was so much to do on the grounds from swimming, tennis, bike rentals and activities for the kids. Being a mom of three this was probably my favorite thing is I could actually relax. Next time I come back I will visit the spa which looks amazing. The sunsets are unbelievable and the most relaxing time we have had in a very long time. Thank you for a great stay we will be back in the future.
We held our daughter’s wedding at the Ocean Edge Resort earlier this month. It required a lot of work and coordination over the weekend – and it was executed to perfection. The rehearsal dinner, beach bonfire, Ocean Terrace cocktail hour and reception in the tent on the front lawn all created some great memories for our family and friends. From beginning to end - there were so many managers and staff that created great service "moments". They came up to us personally to remind us that they were there to assure us that things would go smoothly. It let us sit back and enjoy the events.
Most of our guests stayed on property (Mansion and Villas) and were extremely happy with their accommodations. Nicole served as our Catering Sales Manager and did a great job from beginning to end. She was always responsive to our many calls and requests. We really appreciate her help.
On behalf of my entire family, thanks for helping us putting on a very special Wedding Event. We will talking about it for years.
