“Along the windy, two-lane road through the town of Brewster, two stone pillars signal your arrival at the Ocean Edge Resort. A horseshoe pathway leads your car to The Mansion for check in-an opulent, restored, 1912 Gatsby-esque gem with cement lions at the entry and guests playing croquet on the expansive front lawn. The red-tiled roofs of the new Presidential Villas dot the landscape, past the resorts’ tennis courts and family-packed outdoor pool to the sandy shores of Cape Cod Bay.”
Coastal Living, “Six Amazing Vacation Villas“
“At a resort, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle. But not here, where a personal concierge caters to your whims. That’s a welcome addition to the Ocean Edge, which has undergone $50 million in renovations to its villas, mansion rooms, and restaurants. So now you get the coddling you’d expect from a boutique hotel, plus smart touches like a fridge stocked with ice cream and all the fixin’s for s’mores if you book a Mansion side villa.”

“Located in the charming beach town of Brewster, Mass., the property has fused modern elegance with classic New England sensibilities and traditional Cape Cod style. The villas (from 1,000 to 1,600 square feet) have fully stocked kitchens and expansive views of Cape Cod Bay from the upstairs level, and many have fireplaces. In addition to the golf facilities, the property has four eateries and biking, tennis, and swimming.”
The Robb Report
"Splashes of sea foam, period furnishings and restored woods help Ocean’s Edge Resort & Golf Club personify the Cape Cod aesthetic to a tee. With the introduction of its Presidential Bay Collection of accommodations this week, the property’s aim is to raise beach chic to unprecedented heights."

"A favorite with families, there's activities and attractions for everyone, from the five swimming pools!, the bicycling right on the Cape Cod Rail Trail, to the fabulous golfing. The premier resort on the mid-Cape."
“The setting was something straight out of a movie. The sun had disappeared over the horizon, casting a pink glow in the warm night air. The waves were gently lapping at our feet as we strolled down the beach, passing a few bond fires and friendly families.
“Watch out for the sparks!” One father warned us as we walked by his fire, offering a friendly hello as he corralled his three boys who where running circles with sparklers.
It was the weekend before July 4th and summer was in full swing on Brewster beach halfway up Cape Cod, MA. My girlfriend Emmie and I had escaped the first heat wave of the summer in New York City for a weekend at The Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster.”

"On the beckoning hook of Massachusetts lies the town of Brewster, with mirage-like tidal flats so vast that a coast in Brazil is said to be their only rival in size. During low tide, you can walk a mile into the ocean on freshly exposed sand, alongside minnow-filled tidal pools, skittering hermit crabs, and bubbles from quahogs breathing underfoot."

"The resort is anchored by a historic mansion on the bayside north shore. Returning families say the private beach is the best spot on the Cape to watch the sunset. Get a golf fix on the Nicklaus-designed course, or enjoy indoor and outdoor pools. Ocean Edge Adventure for kids stages projects such as kite-making. Thursday nights are reserved for beach bonfires."
Coastal Living Magazine
"The Mansion’s Ocean Terrace restaurant has seasonal patio dining and panoramic views of the ocean. So romantic is this spot, that it is the site of a couple of marriage proposals a month. All the rooms in the wings at the Mansion had extreme makeovers by Lynda Snyder Associates Inc. of California. The long, narrow rooms, which range from 480 to 680 square feet, seem roomier with the redesign; the beds are now kitty-corner to face the balconies and ocean."
"Although the resort offers lots of accommodation options, kids are best kept in the private villas. These come with up to three bedrooms, a modern kitchen and extra bathrooms, as well as broad swathes of living space to festoon with Legos. Best, the villas are within steps of three outdoor swimming pools for chlorinated entertainment. In the afternoons, staffers lead waterlogged kids in poolside craft activities, while evenings bring outdoor movie screenings."
The Improper Bostonian
"This place proves summer after summer that "family vacation" isn’t an oxymoron. The mid-Cape institution has hit upon a formula that every (supposedly) family-friendly resort should copy: three-bedroom suites to maximize personal space; kitchens, so you can avoid public mealtime meltdowns; and in-suite washer-dryers. Ocean Edge also hosts beachside campfires, barbecues, and ice cream socials, plus one different day camp for kids each week. You may even find time to hit the resort’s Nicklaus Design golf course or get a facial in the spa before the tots notice you’re gone.”
"On behalf of the PGA of America, I congratulate you and your facility for being named to the list of Play Golf America’s Top 100 Performers in 2010.”
"Your home for the weekend is posh yet unpretentious Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club.”
